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.

      This thread is for comments about our Budget Zoo Warlock Deck.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
