Introduction to Hearthstone

Recommended Posts

Guest LightFixture

A note on this intro guide, and by association the other starter guides:

 

After reading the Introduction to Hearthstone, Mechanics, and Beginner guides it was not clear that playing a minion card costs mana, or where that mana cost is shown on the cards. I do not believe it is ever explicitly stated, and being new to card games I assumed mana was only for spells.

 

I would humbly suggest that adding a images of generic card types and pointing out the information found there could solve this problem. 

 

 

Other than that, excellent guides!

Great for those starting out, (like myself).  I've been looking for general help and this seems to be the place to find it. Many thanks!

I think it's hard to cover everything one might ask and sometimes things slip through but usually you can find all you need for HS on Icy Veins, if not, ask and someone will help you eventually :)

Oh btw I noticed in a few guides for cards which are from the Classic Set this line " This card can be obtained from expert packs.".

Example: https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/cards/mage/blizzard

For me it's not a problem I know they are from the classic set, but why use the word "expert" a bit confusing for new players maybe or is there a reason for it?

Classic packs used to be called Expert packs. The change of name wasn't reflected in card guides and I was told that it is not important enough for it to be changed.

Thanks again!  I started watching Youtube videos, but I will check out your link as well!

      Blizzard released the 17.2.2 client patch for Hearthstone to fix a bug related to the closed shop that occurred due to a missing runtime dependency.
      (Source)
      We’re currently in the process of deploying a 17.2.2 client patch that will address the following items:
      Fixed a bug that would cause a crash on mobile when clicking the eye to see who is spectating. Fixed a few various issues that would lock the game state when playing certain cards from hand. Fixed a bug where some players in Europe were only given the option of Warrior as their free deck after graduating the new player ranks. Fixed a bug where the shop would be closed when launching Hearthstone due to a missing runtime dependency. If the shop is still closed after updating to 17.2.2, try swapping to another region on the launcher and swapping back before opening Hearthstone again.
      The incorrect Mana display bug for mobile users will be fixed in the next update.
      (Source)
      Any updates on when the incorrect mana bug for mobile players will be fixed?
      Hey! This will be fixed in our next major update.

      A new blog post has been released, detailing a dozen card changes coming to the game on Monday 18th of May.
      Shaman is getting some much needed help, since three of its cards will be buffed - although it is debatable if these buffs will be enough to move the class out of the bottom.
      As far as the nerfs are concerned, two more Demon Hunter cards (who would have thought?) are getting toned down. Scavenger's Ingenuity, Shadowjeweler Hanar, Blackjack Stunner, Imprisoned Scrap Imp, Bloodboil Brute, Bloodsworn Mercenary are also getting tweaked.
      Nerfed cards will be eligible for a refund until June 1st.
      The patch also brings a bug fix for Ethereal Conjurer, which was causing the game to lock by not offering any Discover options. 
      Don't forget you can grab a free Nemsy until May 19, as part of Patch 17.2.0.
      Blizzard Entertainment
