"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.

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 :)
