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

Recommended Posts

DWAnvUl.jpg

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.

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.

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 :)

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.

      Mike Donais appeared yesterday on his daughter's stream, where he played some games and talked about various topics. He may also have inadvertently made a major reveal about two upcoming nerfs.
      A private message from Jared Noel, a former member of Hearthstone Analytics at Blizzard, appeared on stream. It was mentioned in it that changes would be made Conjurer's Calling and Extra Arms. The former will be increased to 4 mana, while the latter - even though it was one of buffed cards from The Boomsday Project - will be reverted to 3 mana.

      Now, Mike may have been replying "yes" to anything said above, but judging from his reaction this chat log wasn't meant to be shown on stream.
       
      The previous day from the stream, the Hearthstone developer had revealed that there will be an announcement on balance changes this week.

      Hopefully they are prioritizing a nerf patch before the Single Player Content patch
      Yep, we will give more info on balance changes this week hopefully. (source)
      During the stream, Donais also talked about a lot of other issues like card balance and Wild balance in particular, Arena changes, card design and more. Some interesting tidbits are that for Arena, they will revisit the old system, where you could see powerful cards and weak cards in the same pick - without this necessarily being a permanent change. There's also talk about upgrading Priest's board clears - one of the class's main weaknesses - since the team doesn't want to reprint the same cards.
