Duplicate Legendaries Will No Longer Drop From Card Packs

35 posts in this topic

Some exciting card pack changes are coming with the next Hearthstone expansion.

With the release of the next Hearthstone expansion, but still applying to ALL packs, you won't be able to get the same legendary card from a card pack. This applies to crafted legendaries, as well: if you have crafted a legendary card, for example Tirion Fordring, he won't drop for you if you open a Classic pack.

Moreover, beginning with the release of the next expansion, you’re also guaranteed to get a Legendary within your first 10 packs of a new set.

Watch Ben Brode announce this amazing piece of news in his usual excited tone. I mean, what is there not to be excited about?

Lastly, a special promotion is coming soon in the Store. The bundle prices will stay the same, but the number of the packs you will be able to get will be increased. The dates for the promotion haven't been announced yet,

Finally! This no longer makes the RNG as punishing. Getting a dup legendary is so heart breaking. It also lowers the pain of seeing a "worthless" legendary because at least it's the only time you will see him. This does mean (from my understanding) it's essentially never worth dusting a legendary because then it opens their slot to be rerolled in packs.

The 10 pack thing should have happened before anyways. Hell make it the first one just so everyone gets excited every expansion. Won't know what you get, but you get a CHANCE to be competitive.

I'm happy about this, no more crafting a legendary and then pulling it 6 more times (Looking at you Harrison ). My question though is what about golden legendaries, will they have their own counters?

The gold versions of cards have always been treated as different cards (e.g The auto disenchant will not notice any duplicates if you have 2 normal and 2 gold versions of a card) so a card pack giving you a golden legend should be a seperate list but it's just a guess.

This game is incredibly greedy. No, GREEDY! And those measures they bring to fight their own greed are pathetic. In HotS I can have anything I want, for ex., just a little time to grind and voila! This collectible card game is not collectible at all. You got crap you play with, then you dump it for another crap. And don't force me pls to mention RNG. #saltyasusual #collectiblecrapgame

Beg your pardon.

Forgive me saying, but now we'll have to keep even totally shitty legendaries just to be sure we don't get them again. Dusted Manastorm? Get another one! Dusted him? No problem, we have more!.. 400 dust we could use, farewell. Feelgladman.

But right now you dust it then you might get it again. With the change  you might get a Legend you want instead of the same again saving you more dust on the long run.

Yeah, but this run is not so long, except classic packs (tho Tirion or Alexa may become the next victim of The Hall of Fame). You see, I can find a downside anywhere. =)

I doubt they will remove any of the class specific classic legends, they are good but far away from being overpowered. But who knows ^^

Anyway, if I stop being salty, I'd say they move in the right direction. But too slow (nevermind).

Great :)

But pay attention, the 15 cards offer best value, better buy this 4x instead of 60 packs, if you consider buying that many. Should give better value the more you buy imo, at least that would be the usual reward style.

Price in Euros (don't know $ prices):

Pack with 9 packs would be 1,11 € per pack.

Pack with 20 packs would be ~0,99 € per pack.

Pack with 52 packs would be ~0,96 € per pack.

Pack with 78 packs would be ~0,89 € per pack

I have no idea if there is an oversight with the dollar prices but in Euros the biggest pack still offers the best value.

Anyway it's not like they do this out of generosity. With that they make players buy more or player who do not pay often will consider to buy some packs now. But if you planed to buy a certain amount anyway then it's sweet ^^

Blizzard is bad about that. "Coming this summer" Or my favorite "Available in August"

But if you type Extra in the search bar, it shows those cards, though I hope that one day I will be able to select that it will automatically disenchant non-golden extras.

Quite the opposite I would say. It seems that tablet players will have access to all bundles except for 60, and PC will have access to all bundles, including the 60.

What I am wondering: What will happen in the theoretical case (or not so theoretical, at least regarding the core set) that someone has all legendaries from one expansion? Will that person never ever get a legendary again from opening packs of that expansion?

That's what I am thinking. While it is nice to know that you will always get the legendaries that you don't have at the same time it kinda sucks that you lose out on the extra dust.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
