There is a mistake in the noble sacrifice section .. You said the defender will always which is wrong .. If u have redemption with noble sacrifice you will indeed have the defender as a card.. Only if the hero or the minion attack you or deal un fatal blow on one of ur minions..

I am unsure what you even mean, your wording is pretty incomprehensible. 

 

If you have Noble Sacrifice and redemption, when the opponent attacks with any card, then it will trigger the Nobel Sacrifice, causing the attacking minion/player to deal damage to that instead.  If you have Redemption as well, the Noble Defender will come back with 1 health.

Hey.

 

While you are right, the guide is also not mistaken. Redemption triggers when the minion dies, so the statement that the Defender will always die is correct. The Defender will always die. It has 1 health, and no attack can trigger it and do less than 1 damage. The fact that the defender can come back through Redemption has no bearing on the fact that he does die :)

Defenders spawned from Noble Sacrifice can live under one condition - there's a card in play that buffs minion health.

 

Examples:

Stormwind Champion gives all your minions +1/+1, meaning any Defender that spawns from Noble Sacrifice is going to be a 3/2.

Sword Of Justice buffs minions you summon with +1/+1, meaning if you have a SoJ equipped when Noble Sacrifice is triggered the Defender will be buffed to 3/2 BEFORE being hit.

 

If you have both a Stormwind Champion AND a Sword Of Justice active, your Defender will spawn as a 4/3. Pretty meaty.

That's a very good point! I'll update the guide accordingly :)

The section on Repentance references killing off an enemy with Fireblast - I'm fairly sure this is impossible unless you manage to play both paladin and mage at the same time! biggrin.png

Just a note on Redemption - while it's probably obvious to many, you can use it in a more offensive manner as it enables you to suicide one of your minions and get it back straight away.

 

While there are dare-to-dream scenarios with legendary minions with powerful deathrattles (imagine something like Cairne - you cast redemption, trade Cairne with something, then get a Baine and a new Cairne for your troubles, who will eventually spawn a new Baine if not silenced), there are simpler scenarios aswell. For example, it's arena and you're going first. On turn 3, your opponent cast a Shattered Sun Cleric buffing their Dire Wolf Alpha. On turn 4, you can cast your Wolf Rider and Redemption, bash into the Dire Wolf, then bash into the Cleric, clearing the board for subsequent turns. If you have a nice turn 5 play to come, like a Silver Hand Knight or an Azure Drake, all the better.

 

I salivate at the thought of pulling it off with Argent Commander. Nom nom.

Patch 1.0.0.4944 (2014-03-11) means that all secrets now will only activate on the opponent's turn.

Eye for an eye does not proc while hitting a minion with your weapon anymore and Jax wasn't up to date. You can't use it in a more offensive manner anymore.

Not as important but another way that the Defender can live is if a minion that attacks has a chance of attacking another minion, it has a chance of not attacking the defender i.e. Ogre Brute attacks your 7/2 Dr. Boom, triggers Noble Sacrifice, attacks the Defender, then redirects his attack back to the Dr. Boom.

Another way for the noble sacrifice to live is one of my favorite paladin combos...

 

Turn 1 noble sac

turn1 Something like lepper gnome

Turn 2 Juggler

Turn 2 lepper gnome attacks juggler, triggers noble sac with triggers jugglers 1 dam shot, which kills attacking minion.

"Paladins have access to 5 Secrets. All Paladin Secrets have the same cost of 1 Mana Crystal. We will list the Secrets before going into more details below."

In the guide it's written that there are 5 secrets, but there are 6.

7 secrets actually with the release of LoE, but nice catch.

In case of Sacred trial being activated - does the minion gets to perform its battlecry? Or is it destroyed before it reaches battlefield?

One more question - in case of multiple minions dying simultaneously which one is first brought to life by Redemption?
I assume the one that was played first. (I think this info should be added to the article)

And yeah,
"Paladins have access to 5 Secrets. All Paladin Secrets have the same cost of 1 Mana Crystal. We will list the Secrets before going into more details below."
There are actually 7 secrets as positiv2 has already mentioned.

When playing Redemption and Avenge (in that order) and have 2 minions on board, Avenge triggers first even though they are both triggered by the same action and Redemption was played first.

 

This is not reflected in the guide: "Specifically, whenever two or more Secrets which can be triggered by the same action are active at the same time, the Secret that was played first will trigger first"

Thanks for pointing this out. Redemption is an exception to this rule, as it always queues last.

      A new series of posts in the official forums will shed some light into the inner workings of the Hearthstone team. Welcome to Tavern Talk!
      In this first installment, three questions are answered. The first has to do with additional rewards for players who have earned a Golden Hero with every class. Unfortunately, no extra rewards are planned since the team wants new features or rewards to be obtainable by 10% or more of the playerbase.
      Then, we have an update on the new player experience. Team 5 wants to add additional ranks above rank 25 for new players, so they can mostly face each other in their first steps in the ranked ladder. You will be able to only progress forward in these ranks, similarly to what already happens from rank 25 to 20.
      Lastly, we have a double question about using alternate card art and reprinting cards. The team doesn't like the idea of alternate card art, since it makes sense that players associate and remember a specific card from its art. Reprinting cards is something that has been discussed already and it's something they might do in the not-so-near future after careful consideration.

      Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the tavern? Ava and the crew’s antics aside, the Hearthstone development team works hard on a myriad of tasks to bring you the game you know and love so well. More than that, we also make the time to read about the different issues and questions the community brings to light each day. Welcome to Hearthstone Tavern Talk, where we’ll share with you answers to some of the questions we see in our community!
      Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?
      Usually when we add new features or rewards we like to make something that can be obtained by 10% or more of our players. Only very few of our players have the 9 Golden Heroes, and we feel that’s already pretty awesome by itself.
      Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience?
      We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
      What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?
      Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card.
      Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
      See you at the next edition of Hearthstone Tavern Talk!

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!
