It's probably worth noting in one of the beginner guides that the arena only yields GvG packs, so if you want classic cards, you'll need to craft them. Building up a set of classic cards via crafting is extremely slow. A normal pack nets 40 arcane dust, enough to craft one common classic card.

 

While there are decks on this site that use GvG cards, I've yet to find one that doesn't use classic cards. You'll have to craft them all.

Apart from just manually keeping track, not really. The information in the quest log can give you indicators towards some of them, but some are just hidden counters.

Okay, thanks for your response. And thanks for this site, it has been very helpful to a beginner like me who feels way behind the curve.

I just checked yesterday on the quest Total dominance (its actual description is "win 7 games in any mode"). Yeah, it literally means any mode including practice mode. So if you win 7 games against AI in practice mode, you still get the 100 gold reward. Not sure if it works on campaigns or not, but I personally tested on the Practice AI bots and it worked. Hope my comment helped.

Beta Hero! Spend real currency in the Store Gelbin Mekkatorque

 

This quest no longer exists as best I can tell.  I only joined a few weeks ago, have spent money in the shop, and do not have this card (normal or gold version).

It was only available in Beta, indeed.

You can still buy normal packs with gold what are you even talking about?

People say Arena is the best way, but there are also few disadvanatages players used to forget,. First very important factor is time - I try to earn 100 gold and buy yself a pack each day (let's assume I start from 0 gold). With 60 gold quest (I always keep 3 quests - it means I start the day with 2 - so I basically always have something for 60 gold) it takes me only about an hour to earn 100 gold and buy myself a pack. This is very important if you are a student or a worker like me. An hour per day to play and keep the stream of new cards is really nice deal. With Arena however it would take me additional 15 wins to have enough gold (yes, I know Arena gives some gold, so you dont start from 0, but it's still dependant on your win ratio + I usually don't actually start my earning for pack from 0 as well) + Arena itself takes time obviously. It also affects fun from the game, because playing so many games at once can be ok for some "true" players, but for most people it works negatively. So it's very easily assumed I would never be able to complete Arena every day, while as a worker, student, my lady's boyfriend and active swimmer I am still able to buy myself a pack almost every day. In retrospective it is much faster than Arena. Another thing is that Arena gives only GVG packs and most of decks contain only few cards from this set, some contain none. So once you collect everything usable from GVG (mostly mech engine) all cards are usually just a source of dust to create yourself cards from Classic Set, which normally you could obtain from packs and save yourself some dust this way. Spending dust for commons is a bit of waste, by buying packs I was able to collect almost every common/rare and even some epics needed for Pally, Freeze Mage and Zoo. Imagine how much time it would take me, if I had to create every of those cards with dust eanred on GVG.

 

I don't say Arena is worthless obviosuyl as it would be stupid. But I think it should be noted that Arena has disadvantages as well and it's not a nonsense to buy yourself packs, as people claim it to be, only because Arena is usually a pack + opportunity to win something else for the same price. It's not that simple actually.

Personally, I've gotten 3 wins twice, and gotten 55 gold each time.  I also saw places that said win at least 4 times to get the 150 gold back.  Have these numbers changed?

30 gold + 25 gold + 0 dust is 55 gold, isn't it?

I'm pretty sure you misunderstood those "places". Pack costs 100 gold and Arena costs 150. After getting at least 4 wins you are almost guaranteed with 50 or more gold as a reward, so you are above the line, because you spend basically 100 gold and you have not only a pack worth 100, but something else as well. That's what they could mean by "earning gold back" - because you get the 50 gold surplus back and you win some more gold or dust and possibly a card. The most gold you can get for 4 wins is 85, definitely not 150.

Might want to add the free packs from logging in to iOS/android devices and the galaxy gift card back from logging in from an S6

You really need to update the quest list. I keep getting quests that I didn't even know existed (and I would never have given up my 1st quest choice for), due to the incomplete quest list.

Hi, I started to play "Hearthstone" not long ago. One thing bothers me.

 

3 wins = 10 gold

10 times for 3 wins = 100 gold

 

Simple math but...I did this "little walk" to get this 100 gold (secret Paladin didtongue.png). The think is that I have no idea how or where I can get this reward.

 

For any advice big thanks in advance

I'm confused by your question. You are awarded 10 gold for every 3 wins you get in Play Mode, after you've done that 10 times, you have 100 Gold total.

if you reach your total level of all Heroes 301 you get another 300 Gold...

You have probably just won your 1000th game, a coincidence I believe.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)
      Spreading Plague now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
