I was at over 100 teams defeated without a single win. Found the shrine tiers list as I was in my 2nd-3rd battle with bottled terror. Figured I was screwed. Nope, hello first win ^_^

Needless to say, I'm questioning all of the rankings on that tier list now 🙂

This game mode is fairly RNG dependent due to how some matchups are highly polarised and how card buckets work. You could get an awful shrine and still win, and you can get a great shrine and lose anyway. Generally though, you should have an easier time with higher ranked shrines than you would with a lower ranked shrine.

From experience, the shrine tier list holds for me, as I have completed the whole run successfully with each of the tier 1 shrines on my first attemp, with the exceptions of Jan'alai's Progeny, which I had won with on my second attempt, and Bwonsamdi's Tome, which I never got around to picking. For lower ranked shrines, it was up to three failed attempts to finally win with it. Nonetheless, I am glad that you finally achieved a victorious Rumble Run.

Again icy veins does a good job saying what is available. But another pointless guide as this is another of hearthstones great pointless adventures. I struggle to see why anyone plays this game as it’s obviously impossible to win unless the computer wants you to. I’ve never in my life found a game as good as this at making sure the human interface has literally 0 input into winning. The cheating by the ai is simply mind boggling. You never have a chance from the moment you press play unless you get the 1 in 100,000,000 game that the computer allows you to win on.

Mh, I won with 3 shrines.

10 tries or something like that.

But all 3 were "strong" shrines that are considered good and strong. I oriented heavily on these guides (which shrines are good? Which buckets / boni...) And with those the runs are definitly winable.

Sure, you need some luck. Some encounters your and/or the opponents card-draw are too unlucky and you have no chance of winning.

And yeah, you need to have some idea what you are doing. You can't afford many missplays.

The rumble run is actually a quite well made "solo-modes". That's one part Blizzard does really nice. I enjoyed every solo-part in the last expansions. They put some thinking and effort into those encounteres. Sure, you need luck, there is no "winning-strategy" that guarantees your victory. But a game like this doesn't require that. RNG is fine, as long as there is a chance for you to actually win. And all solo-modes have that. I won every one of them at least once (which every halfway decent player will have done if he tried it more then once.)
And I am one of the users on this site who critizes Blizzard most. I don't like the games they produce (story, characters, atmosphere) compared to 15 years ago. I don't like how they try to squeeze more and more money out of Hearthstone (I do NOT complain that they try to make money. They shall make money. I used to always buy their games as soon as they were released. Because they deserve to make good money on a good game. But switching the adventures for more expansions (Hearthstone) is just over the line.)
However, Blizzard does several things right. And you spreading stupid lies is just annoying.

But I know, you don't want an answer, you just want to troll. Your claims are obviously false and I have no idea why I am stupid enough to even answer^^

Ah yes the age old, if I call you a troll it avoids myself being called a troll. You realise that between the two of us only one has made a direct personal attack on the other... but of course your clearly the one in the right because your allowed to troll others but as long as you believe yourself that’s all that matters.

as soon as you made a personal attack on someone meone you do not know you invalide your own argument. Next time try to be more reasonable and you might have a chance at a convincing argument. Untill you learn to behave like a grown up I’ll just have to assume your opinions cannot be taken seriously. 

You also contradict yourself in your own assessment so again, try to troll better next time. Untill that point I’ll continue to believe the accuracy of the facts as I know it. This adventure cannot be beaten unless the computer decides it wants you too. At that point you win.

So many text and such little content :)
And on top of that you ignore every fact about other players being able to win (you can watch on youtube-vids, you do not have to take my statement as face value) but you still claim your "facts" to be true.

Let me guess - politician?

Well, I am out of this "conversation".

And yet again the troll begins with a personal attack. I do feel sorry for you that your only outlet is to try to abuse others. Their is only one set of facts how you interpret them is a different matter, and our opinions differ. But of course as the troll, your only response is to make petty personal attacks.

The problem here is that you present your opinion as a fact, and honestly, your opinion a person winning only when the AI lets them to is pretty far from real reason why people win in Rumble Run. It's incredibly naive to assume that luck is the only, or even main, factor here, and that I assume is the main reason you're being called a troll—because you are stating something that is clearly wrong and then you even double down, which is what trolls usually do.

If you said that Dungeon Run or Monster Hunt was just dumb and way too luck-reliant, I'd wholeheartedly agree, but Rumble Run is actually well designed (aside from replayability) piece of content, and one's skill is still pivotal here.

Besides, you say that their only response was to call you a troll but if you actually read their post, you'll notice that it does not make even a tenth of that post, yet you apparently only read that. You're either delusional, or are a troll.

I would absolutely disagree that skill has anything to do with it. Apart from the standard argument that hearthstone is more luck than skill anyway this game mode is filled with luck. You cannot decide which card packs you get offered nor what’s in them, you cannot decide which specials you get, you cannot decide which enemy you get, you cannot decide what order you get your cards and that’s just the stuff on your side of the game. On top of that your against a computer that gets (more often than not) perfect synergy, perfect card draw, overpowered hero powers, more starting crystals and a direct counter to whatever you do. The only way you can beat such decks with your own ‘random’ (slightly synergies) decks is waiting for a missplay from the computer (which can only happen if it’s progreammed to, that’s how computers work).

i would absolutely disagree that victory is more skill than luck given how little chance you have to influence the game

This is a problematic mindset that won't get you far in the game. Usually the people that do well, do so consistently, like Kat's recent double #1 legend finish—it's way more likely that she managed to stay there thanks to her skill rather than luck.

6 hours ago, Guest Newbie said:

You cannot decide which card packs you get offered

You can't, but with the choice of three card buckets, you'll more often than not have a strong bucket in the selection. Of course, selecting the right bucket is again a skill-based decision.

6 hours ago, Guest Newbie said:

you cannot decide which specials you get

Although there are some team mates and passive effects than can nearly win the game on their own, it's definitely possible to win even with weak options if you play smart. As I said before, you are also offered a choice of three, which means you'll usually have a solid option.

6 hours ago, Guest Newbie said:

you cannot decide which enemy you get

You'll need to be flexible with your card choices to allow you to win against all possible opponents you could face, and you'll need to adapt your playstyle accordingly, which is of course a skill-based action. 

6 hours ago, Guest Newbie said:

you cannot decide what order you get your cards

What you can do, however, is play well enough to mitigate the negative side of this. If you get unlucky, with enough skill, you'll be able to salvage the game, and vice versa.

The computer does not have an unfair advatage in this. The computer has cards that you could be offered when playing for that Shrine. If you think that some combos that the computer pulls of are ridiculous, try to get your hands on the shrine later on.

It might be programmed to make misplays, but it's more likely that the AI is just dumb, as it has been getting progressively better with time. Rather than the devs removing misplays the AI is allowed and supposed to make, it's more likely that they are making the AI better at the game (but it still sucks hard). Either way, it's up to you to take advantage of the AI's misplays. Identifying them, and knowing how to use them to boost your own position is a skill.

But if skill was the most important thing, your top player would be at the top every season and not just some of them so skill is not the key criteria. You see top streamers getting beaten all the time using the “best” decks and that shouldn’t happen if skill is everything.

even if you get a semi decent bucket choice your still not guaranteed any decent cards in that bucket as both the bucket and the cards are random.

their are no win on their own cards. Oh my that is a stupid thing to say. It may be a strong card yes,  but as you can’t decide when you recieve nor if you have anything that works with it, it it cannot turn a game on its own.

flexible in card choices is just daft, you can’t be flexible when you can’t decide the cards you are offered and the. Ore flexibility you have the less synergy your deck has and the weaker it becomes, then you have no chance either. You can’t be both flexible and strong.

i really would love to see you turn a game with a bad draw against an enemy that makes almost no. I stakes and has near perfect synergy. I really would love to see that, let’s see you go up to top level and have a bad draw and still win the game. That’s a very very bold statement to make.

The computer absolutely has an advantage. A synergised deck that always draws what is needed when it needs it and a starting bonus of crystals. How is that not an advantage?

This happens even in games where no RNG is present, most notably chess. In Hearthstone, there is also the factor of time, as you may not have the time to grind for so many games to stay at the top. However, the players that get to the top usually do so consistently, albeit a few positions lower.

That was a hyperbole from my side; although they do not win the games on their own literally, they usually provide you with such value that they can turn a losing game into a winning game, and winning game into a won game.

You are granted a lot of card buckets. The chance of not getting what you need over the course of several runs for the deck is simply negligible.

Flexibility is a form of synergy. If a card that fills an empty spot in your deck enables you to win games where the synergstic cards are weaker, then it works as a synergy.

This is just silly. You can be strong by being flexible.

I did win games with bad draw, and those that I lost, I know that I made misplays and could have possibly won if I did not make them, even with subpar draw.

The computer absolutely has an advantage. A synergised deck that always draws what is needed when it needs it and a starting bonus of crystals. How is that not an advantage?

Obviously there is luck involved. EVERY card-game has this element.
Poker is a great example: Of course you can win hands against a better opponent. By being lucky. But nevertheless, your chances of beating a better player regularly is virtually non existent. If you put 4 good player and 4 new player on one table, the outcome is quite certain. 
Every game you throw a dice has this element. Ever played Axis & Allies or Backgammon?
Sure, you can curse the dice and your bad luck - and loose game after game after game. 
Yes, luck is a part, but skill too.

Which game has absolutly no luck? Where is "skill" the only variable? E-Sport? Or football? No, every now and then a "worse" team can beat the better one. If you beat a premier-league club as a second-devision club in the FA Cup, are you better then the premier-league club? No. Out of 10 games you loose 9. But there is one game you win. 

 

Hearthstone is the same. Sure you need luck, but if you have no skill you will win very few games against skilled players.

In the rumble-run I finished 3 runs and beat 58 opponents (IIRC). One  Run is 8 encounteres.

That's 24. -> I defeated another 34 opponents. Since you do not loose your first or second game it is a safe bet that I made maybe another 8 attempts I lost. Some at boss 4, some at boss 6, something like that.

Out of approx. 10-12 runs I managed to win 3.

-> As you see the encounter is clearly winable. And not even that difficult. Sure, you won't win every game (would be boring if you would, don't you agree?).
But yeah, you need to know what you are doing. My last run (dragon-warrior) I was lucky regarding my companion. Got twice the one that killed all enemy minions as a battlecry. Very strong. However, I had a few games I had to calculate quite hard if I could afford to play it next turn or not. Because the enemy-board wasn't full. I could play it on turn 8 and clear the enemy board. BUT: The enemy had some cards and would probably refill it very fast. I would kill 4 or 5 minions.
And what would happen if I play some dragons this turn? The dragons weren't great, the opponent would manage to kill them and get a few hits in the face. But I would use my shrine well, reduce the cost of the dragons in my hand - and kill more minions of the enemy on turn 9.

Sure, that's no rocket science. However, the first instinct is to clear the board and have the advantage. However, it would have cost me the game several times. By waiting I took damage, my minions were destroyed. But in the long run I could afford the hits, I killed more (and stronger) enemie minions. This way I got down on HP but had then a much stronger board (because of cheaper dragons) - and the enemy depleted his ressources.

By anticipating 2 rounds in advance the I realized that the "correct" move at turn 8 would in fact be fatal and would kill me.

 

And the CPU doesn't start with more manacrystals and no, the CPU doesn't decide what it draws. 

He has more HP then you, that's all.

Not really, the computer also has quite insane synergies you mostly lack at the higher encounters. Best example is the "Gain armor - Refresh Mana crystals" Loti deck that can powerdraw and play its entire deck and Gonk you so hard it should be classified as crime against trollkind.

That's the real problem with these PvE encounters, they're supposed to feel epic when you win, but all they feel is frustrating when you lose. Give me the Boomsday puzzles any day of the week, at least they depend on you thinking things through.

Sorry, but your assertations that this is easily beatable are just plain lies. The computer cheats so badly it’s unbelievable. You claims that you can get good stuff even out of sub optimal card packs is wrong and worse than that it messes up your synergies making you weaker and weaker. The computer plays insane synergy and always has a counter to you in hand, which indicates a dodgy draw. The computer always steals what you need if that’s it’s thing or clears right when it needs to if that’s it’s style. And if it’s a draw game you draw badly it draws well, and no, you haven’t beat the game with a bad draw, that’s so untrue. Once your behind in this game you are not comming back.  In this game you cannot be strong by being flexible or you will not, absolutely will not, have the ability to beat the bigger decks and stronger computer characters.

3 more runs in the last days.

Two of them wins. One loss.

Lost with Jan'alai's Mantle

Won with Bottled Terror + Treasure from Below.

 

That are 5 completed runs now. With less then 15 tries. 

I am not sure how exactly you define "easy". You won't win 90% of your runs, sure.

But if you are able to win approx. 1/3 that may not be "easy" but it isn't "unbeatable" 

 

If lots of players are able to complete the run repeatedly (and not with tons of unsuccesful tries!) - but you do not manage to finish it a single time - well, maybe the fault is not within the system but with you.

And yes, the AI has more HP and has  good decks. Better decks then you. But the AI plays horrible. That's why he needs some advanteges. Or you would win nearly every encounter. But NO, the AI does not "decide" which card it chooses now.

Treasure from Below "steals" a card each turn it is alive.

The AI was close to fatigue and I stole his second-last card.

I controlled the board since several turn and killed everything he threw on the board. The second-last card I stole was Unbound Punisher. A warrior Teammate which is incredible strong (kills every enemy minion + you get +2 armor for each minion killed)

If he would have gotten that Teammate a few turns earlier he may have turned the game.

I am quite confident, that I would have retaken the board easily, but you can never be sure.

If the AI would have been able to "choose" which card it draws, it would have choosen this (totally imbalanced) teammate.

It did not. It was in the last 2 cards of his deck (which is a probability of less then 10%).

And I stole this card.

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Unique Tavern Brawls

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1 Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum!

Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2 E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed.

      Treasures from the Tomb!

      23 cards from across Hearthstone history have been unsealed from Wild and unleashed by the Headless Horseman! Until our next major update, these cards are stepping out of Wild and will be playable in Standard matches. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action.
      These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards, you'll still receive these event copies. When the event ends they'll disappear, just like the Headless Horseman himself!
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan
      Dual-Class Arenas
      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s End dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, weeks 1 and 2 of this event will award Arena Tickets on login! This event will also coincide with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation will be as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs
      Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle: If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle: Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD.
      Legendary Quests and Login Rewards
      Begin your Quest: A new Legendary Doom in the Tomb quest* will be unlocked at the start of each week during the event, in addition to your normal daily quests. These new quests will reward you with either card packs from one of the current standard sets, or a hefty sum of Gold! * Legendary quests will replace an existing normal quest if your quest log is full, so we recommend that you have a spot open when this event goes live. Legendary Login Rewards: Login any time during the event (10/8-10/30) to earn a bundle of 5 Hearthstone card packs! 2 Saviors of Uldum packs 2 Rise of Shadows packs 1 Rastakhan’s Rumble pack

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!

      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
