You're still missing treasures, for instance the 6/1 Weapon with deathrattle "summon all minions killed by this weapon this run".

Togwaggles-Dice.png

You listed Togwaggle's Dice as a poor choice but I think it's at least a good treasure. You underestimate the huge power it has if combined with Potion of Vim. Potion of Vim by itself is rather average because you usually have a hard time playing that many cards early on, which results in burning lots of cards - even if you'd be playing a zootype deck with cheap minions.

I'd pick Togwaggle's Dice over any other passive treasure anyday. If you happen to have a chance to combine it with Potion of Vim, go for it! You'll have so many cards in your hand, you'll most likely have some expensive cards that have their cost reduced to 3. 2. 1 or even 0. Turn 2 Ragnaros? Sure, why not.

Robes of Gaudiness is more consistent in that regard, but you'll never defeat bosses like Heroic Zuramat the Obliterator with Robes of Gaudiness (Hero Power: 2 Mana - Banish a minion to the Void [basically silence and destroy]) if you can only play 2 cards a turn.

I had a hard time with bosses 7 and 8 in Violet Hold Heroic, took me like 10 runs total. Because that stupid Core Hound Lavanthor has the perfect synergies. Dice and Vim finally combined and it was almost a breeze.Togwaggles-Dice.png

I think you are over rating Wonderous Wonderball.

Yes, it's fun and it can save your but every once in awhile. However, it's very random and you've rated other random effects fairly low. It's also not always beneficial. I've had several situations where it changes the mana cost of a 2 or 3 mana minion to 5 or 6. It's killed my minions on randomly recast spells. It also gave me 6 copies of Medivh, the Guardian on turn 1, thus filling my hand with unusable cards. As a result I burned several helpful cards because I could not shrink my hand.

In my opinion the Wonderous Wonderball treasure is at best Average. If you want to rated it good, I could see that as a possibility, However, there is no way this is excellent unless the reviewer got the best luck of all time on its effects.

I agree - it is much too unreliable to be "excellent".

Sure, it can be fun, but "fun" is something very individual. A ranking is more about solid facts, that's way I'd rate this treasure as average.

The Robes of Gaudiness are excellent unless you're doing the Dalaran bank and end up with the last boss of Trade Prince Gallywix, in which case it probably makes the encounter impossible.

Was breezing through Heroic on the Mage but as soon as my hand got too full of coins, it was impossible to do anything, because you can only play two cards at a time. Either get rid of two coins, or play two cards -- and end up with more coins.

Might want to add a note about that.

I would not even rate it average. It is simply bad. Its effects can be terrible: blasting your own minions, burning cards, even triggering when the game is already won. It is too unreliable too depend upon. I would advice not to pick this unless you like some extra rng in your game.

      The latest update to Hearthstone comes with optimizations to improve performance while playing Battlegrounds on devices with fewer than 2GB of RAM, some balance changes, and various game fixes.
      The team is overall happy with how Battlegrounds were received and there will be new heroes and minions live within the game with the next update.
      The developers are also working on an advanced stats screen, leaderboard updates, and allowing minions to be sold directly from your hand (coming early next year).
      Check out our Battlegrounds guide to learn more about the new mode!

      Hi all,
      We’re in the process of releasing a new update, which is now live on PC and rolling out over the next few hours on mobile operating systems. This update contains a variety of optimizations to improve performance when playing Battlegrounds, especially on devices with fewer than 2GB of RAM. Please note that players on devices with lower memory may still experience degraded performance.
      As a note for iOS users, please ensure you have updated to the latest version of iOS to receive the greatest performance increase from these optimizations.
      There were some balance changes that we identified based on our initial testing that didn’t quite make it in for release, so we’re making those live with today’s update.
      Balance Changes
      Minions Mama Bear Changed from 5/5 giving +5/+5 to 4/4 giving +4/+4 Kangor’s Apprentice Changed from 4/8 to 3/6 Hero Powers Infinite Toki Temporal Tavern Changed from 1 cost to 2 and now reads “Refresh Bob’s Tavern. Add a minion from a higher Tavern Tier.” King Mukla Bananarama Changed to “Passive Hero Power: Whenever you buy a beast, add a Banana to your hand.” Lord Jaraxxus Bloodfury Hero power changed from 3 cost to 2. Game Fixes & Improvements
      Squelch now works as intended + no longer causes crashes under certain circumstances Daily Quests can now be rerolled Hallow’s End Arena Daily Quest can now be completed A variety of Android crashes have been fixed Memory optimization for Battlegrounds for devices with less than 2GB of RAM We’re aiming to make updates fairly regularly – every month or so, or perhaps a little faster. We’ll have more information on future updates over the next few weeks.
      While I’m here, I wanted to talk a bit about Battlegrounds and what we’re seeing and feeling since we launched in beta last week.
      Overall, we’ve been thrilled by the response players have had to Battlegrounds, and we’ve been closely watching the feedback coming in. We’re continuing to work on a variety of things coming in the future, but I’d like to call out to a few of them. Please note all of this is future-looking – none of this is getting added quite yet.
      New Heroes and Minions!
      We’ve been cooking up some new heroes and minions, and we’ll be making them live within the game with our next update. We don’t want to say too much right now, but a couple of very familiar faces will be included.
      Stats!
      We know the amount of gameplay information that informs how players are performing is limited right now, and we are already hard at work on an advanced stats screen that will be available in the next update. We’ll have much more detail soon, but expect things like your top 5 heroes by wins, most played heroes, how many first place finishes you’ve completed, and more.
      Leaderboard Updates
      We want to give players more useful information about their opponents so they can make more informed gameplay decisions and build more complex strategies. On the left-hand leaderboard we’re going to be adding some addition information on the minion types that your opponents have. For example, you’ll be able to see that one of your opponents currently holds three murlocs and two demons.
      The Selling Experience
      We want to make some improvements to how minions are sold, allowing minions to be sold from your hand. We think this will make it into the game some time early next year, and we’ll have more updates on how that is progressing, especially if we think it will come later than January.
      Open Beta begins tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov. 12th @ 10am PT! We hope to see you all in the Tavern!

      If you log into Hearthstone before November 27, you will receive two free Golden cards inspired by the stuggle between Alliance and Horde.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The realm of Azeroth ties many of us together, across languages, continents, and across Hearthstone, Warcraft, and World of Warcraft. For the past 25 years, we’ve experienced countless stories and victories brought to us by these games, and now Hearthstone would like to join in on the anniversary celebration.

      Beginning 10 a.m. PT November 13, and lasting through 10 a.m. PT November 27, players who log into Hearthstone will be able to claim two free Golden cards inspired by the epic struggle between Horde and Alliance.

      Be sure to log in before November 27th! We’ll see you in the tavern!

      Some players were experiencing issues after matches have concluded, and as a result, Tavern Brawl has been temporarily disabled. They're planning to bring it back tomorrow.

      We’ve temporarily disabled the Tavern Brawl mode and expect it to return tomorrow, Thursday the 14th. Some players were encountering some issues after matches have concluded, and these were serious enough that we wanted to take the mode down entirely.
      We’re planning to bring the mode back tomorrow and will be rotating in a different Tavern Brawl for the rest of the week. We’ll provide an update at that time to let everyone know that the mode has been enabled again and give you a heads up of what Tavern Brawl we’ve rotated in.
