"New Year Of The Raven" Party Will Reward Packs With Each Daily Quest

For two weeks, players will receive one card pack in addition to the normal reward for completing a Daily Quest.

There are no sweeter words than "free packs" to a Hearthstone fan, which makes today's announcement of the New Year of the Raven Party as sweet as it gets. Beginning on March 26th and ending on April 9th, each Daily Quest completed during the New Year of the Raven Party will reward one card pack in addition to the normal rewards. These packs can be from Journey to Un'Goro, Knights of the Frozen Throne, Kobolds & Catacombs, or even The Witchwood (but they won't open-able until the set releases). That adds up to 14 free packs for daily Hearthstone players, and two additional packs to players who is wise enough to bank up a couple of Daily Quests coming into event.

Blizzard held a similar event last year leading up to the release of Journey to Un'Goro, which rewarded dust, gold, packs, and even a golden Volcanosaur on the final day of the event. Even though there are already 14 reasons to be excited about the New Year of the Raven party, there could be even more free rewards in store for us as we approach the release of The Witchwood.

Wuha, that is realy nice.

Rewards before a new expansion have always been nice last year and this is no exception.

that's quite a bit all together with the pre-order also giving +20 cards (even though I would not call the one with the pre-order "free")!

What's up with all these rewards lately? Numbers are dropping I'd say.

OR, they realized the game is getting too expensive, so they made the game more rewarding

I guess it's a bit of both. Making it a bit more affordable for players who play for free or pay less and using this as a good way to promote the new "year", set and the game in general, attracting new players as  well as keeping active players happy.

One thing, will it be just random which card packs you get? I think most players could use cards from any set, and dust is dust no matter which packs but honestly I would prefer it to be more like: "First 3 quests completed award an Un'gro pack, next 3 packs a KFT pack, next 3 packs a K&C pack and any more quests completed award a Witchwood pack."

I can already see the posts in the official forum coming "fu... this I got no witchwood packs" or "I got mostly Un'goro pack but I have most if that set, damn it!!!"

Don't we have enough randomness in the game itself already? ^^

I doubt the packs will be random, especially when packs of the new set are concerned. If anything, there will be a set number of those. 

Good to see Hearthstone continuing the trend of giving more rewards out. I'm not going to go all conspiracy theory on the reasons why. Rotation is always a good time to get back into the game, and anything to mitigate the worry of not having enough standard cards certainly helps.

Well, I hope you are right because a set amount is something clear, everyone knows what they will get without being sad because they hope for more packs of a certain set. But from their wording "These packs can be from" and " ..., or even The Witchwood!", it sounds pretty random to me.

I stared with my 2nd account to test it a bit, so far it looks pretty random

First pack was from K&C, 2nd from Witchwood, 3rd was Un'Goro.

When did this actually start? I completed 2 daily quests yesterday ( Monday march 26th in U.S.) and did not receive any packs. Only the gold from said quests

Is no one reading the official news? With things often worded vague this was pretty clear, 26th 23:59 CEST, I am not sure about other time zones though.

Official News? No. I read it on this website that only stated "Beginning on March 26th...". I guess I know now that what I read on here, I will have to back up and verify somewhere else. Officially.

Here "New Year Of The Raven" Party Will Reward Packs With Each Daily

In the second line is a link to the official site where it's clearly stated when the event starts. The exact time was missing in the Icy Veins Post but the 26th was correct. Besides there have been issues on several servers which leaded to a delayed start, that's hardly the fault of the news here :)

      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!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      It’s the Headless Horseman’s favorite time of year, and he’s returning to the Hearthstone tavern from October 17 through October 31 to host another a blowout Hallow’s End celebration for everyone! If you dare to brave a tavern decked in delightfully dreary decorations, you’ll find that your horrific host has also planned some spine-tingling treats and chilling challenges!
       
      Tempting Treats
      The Headless Horseman is handing out ghoulish goodies just for logging in! Log in between October 17 and 10 p.m. PDT on October 31 to receive a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card and an Arena ticket.

       
      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party
      During Hallow’s End you can experience dual class Arena* with an added twist: Each of the nine classic Hearthstone Heroes will be attending in costume!

       
      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.
       
      Wise monster hunters avoid the haunted wood during Hallow’s End, so the creepy creatures of the Witchwood are taking the opportunity to find out which among them is the strongest! Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.
       


       
      There’s a feast of fearsome fun to be had at the Headless Horseman’s Hallow’s End hootenanny. Don’t forget to check out a Hallow’s End Fireside Gatherings Tavern near you and get Nemsy Necrofizzle as the celebration continues!
       
      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.
