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.

      Four new Mech minions were spoiled as details about the Magnetic keyword were explained and demonstrated in a short video.
       
      Many questions about Magnetic were answered in today's Hearthside Chat as four new Mech cards (three with Magnetic) were revealed in the video:
       
       
      Announced in the video were details on how the Magnetic mechanic will work in game. If a minion with Magnetic is played to right of another Mech minion, then the minion will be played as-is and the two minions will not fuse together. To "activate" Magnetic and fuse two Mechs together, you will need to play a minion with Magnetic to the left of a Mech minion on the board. It was also announced the Hunter, Paladin, and Warrior will be the three classes that focus on the Magnetic keyword, and there will be Neutral Magnetic minions as well.
      So, what kind of giant robots will we be assembling in The Boomsday Project? First, we get Wargear:
       

       
      As Stephen Chang pointed out in the video, 5 Mana for 5/5 worth of stats is the same rate as Blessing of Kings! Wargear will turn any Mech into an instant threat, and will surely be a key card in any aggressive Mech deck. Though the card is far from impressive when played without Magnetic, we've seen time and time again just how powerful it is to add stats to the board which you can immediately use to attack (Bonemare, Fungalmancer).
       

       
      If you're looking for a good target for Wargear's massive stat boost, look no further than Upgradeable Framebot. 2 Mana for 6 total stats is an incredible deal, which should make Upgradeable Framebot a plug-and-play 2 drop in any Mech deck. The fact that this minion has a low Attack should not scare aggro decks away from it, as the 5 Health makes it incredible target for minion buffs.
       

       
      Our first Warrior card with Magnetic is Beryllium Nullifier, which doesn't excite me as much as the previous two cards. Adding 3/8 and "Can't be targeted by spells or Hero Powers" to any minion makes it nearly impossible for anything but a Vilespine Slayer or Voodoo Doll to kill, but 7 Mana is a huge ask for tempo decks. Magnetic appears to be an aggressive ability by nature, which makes me skeptical about the need for a 7 Mana card which only adds 3 attack the turn it comes down. Beryllium Nullifier seems better suited for a "Big Mech" deck, so we'll have to wait and see which other cards get spoiled before writing this one off.
       

       
      Last but not least is Zilliax, the walking keyword! This guy has a keyword for every point of Mana he costs, and a few of these keywords are highly desirable ones. Even if Zilliax didn't have Magnetic, he still might be a reasonable card for the fact that he can trade into any 3 Health minion with his Divine Shield and Rush while gaining you 3 life with his Lifesteal, then stick around on the board with his Taunt after he is done. Is this the card that Town Crier has been waiting for? The Lifesteal and Rush also make him a great target for Countess Ashmore in slower decks. I have a hard time imagining a world where Zilliax doesn't see quite a bit of play in the new meta!
      What do you think about these four new Mech cards? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Project Hub for more information on the upcoming expansion.

      Quest rewards from today until July 30th will be doubled during the triumphant return of the Midsummer Fire Festival!
       
      Just in time for the upcoming Hearthstone expansion on August 7th, the Midsummer Fire Festival will reward double the gold for all quests completed from now until July 30th.
      Much like last year's festival, Ragnaros has come to "CURE US OF BOREDOM" by bringing us some fresh Hearthstone content. Announced in today's post were new emotes and a new Tavern Brawl, but we can probably also expect a number of daily login surprises if this year's festival is anything like last year's. Expect to hear plenty of amusing dialogue when you log in to Hearthstone over the next few weeks, including plenty of jabs at Ahune the frost elemental.

      A new Shaman card was revealed in today's blog post, which shed light on the backstory behind The Boomsday Project.
      A new Shaman card was revealed today on the official Blizzard blog in a post titled The Boomsday Project: Lab Logs Part 1:

       
      A 2/2 Elemental isn't quite worth 2 Mana, while the Battlecry effect on Menacing Nimbus isn't quite worth 1 Mana. Together, the 2 effects add up to a card which likely provides you with more than 2 Mana of value, which makes Menacing Nimbus a playable card in my opinion. If there's an Elemental Shaman deck in the new meta, I expect Menacing Nimbus to be a valuable curve-filler in it.
       

       
      It's hard to say whether the most exciting part of today's post was the new card, or the amount of backstory, hidden clues, and new art which was provided for The Boomsday Project. I'm sure that someone smarter than myself can decode today's post to discover a number of things about the upcoming expansion.

      This Mage Legendary card was revealed in collaboration with Wronchi!
      If you remember from the expansion announcement video, Hearthstone's developers were sucked into Netherstorm and it's up to Levi the intern to rescue them! As he ventures into Boom Labs, he encounters Stargazer Luna.
      The video was made by Wronchi Animations, who have created many beloved and hilarious Hearthstone cartoons. There's probably going to be a second part, so expect more card reveals!
      Now, let's talk about the card itself.

      With a Netherstorm expansion, one would expect that the magnificent Kael'thas would have been the Mage Legendary. Instead, we get Stargazer Luna which is a very interesting card with a decent statline. She can complement perfectly Aggro/Burn Mage, but you could perhaps find her in Minion-based Mage decks: mostly Murloc Mage, but maybe Elemental Mage as well. She has potentially better tempo than Aluneth, but is more risky. You obviously don't want to play her on turn 3. Let the topdeck wars begin!
      The reveal schedule is unclear at the moment, but it should go as with previous expansions: an initial reveal livestream on July 23, followed by roughly two weeks of card reveals by community sites and personalities, then a final stream before The Boomsday Project releases on August 7.
