Bridging the Gap (How to get better at Hearthstone)

3 posts in this topic

Hello, I have been playing Hearthstone for about 4 weeks now. I have completed all the wings of Naxxrammas and all the class challenges.


While I am terrible at constructing decks, with the help of this site I have managed to peak at rank 18 but I hover mainly on 20 sometimes spending a few days at a time at 19. I feel as though I have a fairly comprehensive understanding when it comes to actually playing the board. Almost all my losses are due some big legendary or other rare card stomping me out of nowhere, pretty much all the other losses are from mistakes that I can identify.


This point seems, at least for now, to be a bit of a dead end. Even at rank 20 70% of the people I am vsing have decks with many rare cards with which I simply can't compete (Or perhaps I can but I don't know how to improve my decks with the few rarer cards I have earnt)


The Arena is the bane of my existence. I have never gotten more than 2 wins and I regularly get 1 or 0. It honestly feels like I am the most unlucky person ever, but logically I need to improve my deck building skills.


So there are a 2 questions I would like to pose to the community, especially to those wonderful people who already share their decks and strategies with noobs like me on this very site.


  1. How best should I approach improving my decks? (In other words what is the best way to get more gold or more money or more arcane dust)
    1. Keep plodding away at this level buying card packs every 100 gold.
    2. Learn how to compete in the Arena. (If so how??? lol)
    3. Pick a hero, find a deck that you like the look of, proceed to disenchant all the other hard earnt cards to build that one deck and hope against hope it ends up being the deck for you.
    4. Some other method that has eluded my thouht process.
  2. Basic Decks! Let me start this question by saying, thank you SO SO much to the people who have built this site and keep the decks up to date.

Would it be possible for the current depository of Basic decks for each class to be improved by having a somewhat more exstensive section on how to improve the deck with cards you might have.

For example I have all the Naxx cards, none of which are included in the Basic decks, I also have, over time, gotten about 30 card packs, so I am certainly not restricted to basic cards, but I have yet to get enough excess cards or arcane dust to move up to the other decks shared here.


Thanks to anyone and everyone who decides to contribute to this discussion. Happy Hearthing and good luck with your draws!

That sounds like an awesome offer! I would certainly accept, except I don't think I fit those requirements lol. My mic is just my macbook pro mic and my internet is typical of country Australia where I live. ADSL 2 on shared phonelines -.- I will check out your stream though ofcourse!

      Hi fellow druids,
      Since I think druid is the strongest heal class in the current patch, it may sound presumptous or arrogant to other heal classes, but well. my opinion and main reason I play heal druid. 
      Why I opened the thread? I think my HPS are rather lacking in comparison to "top" logs, even though I am not that far away gear-wise (I know there are log pushers, but it can't be that the top bracket stops at 600-700k hps+ on certain fights and I'm at 400k).
      Armory: (I only got 3 legendaries, 2 of them equipped and the shoulders somewhere in the inventory because reasons).
      Most Recent Skorpyron Log:
      (this fight is an exception, because of the constant ticking dmg of hc ticho and the hots weren't that much in overheal)
      It may be that I'm predicting raid damage wrong or something like that, but even when I predict it somewhat right, I would only get 1-2 ticks on my HoTs before the other heals (especially Pallies I think) top the group with a 1 second cast and the remaining time of my HOTs are going to the dreamland of overheals.
      Do you have any idea on what I can improve on or tips to heal "correctly", because I think I waste mana because of the above reasons and when it's needed, I have nothing left.
      I would appreciate any constructive opinion you have and thanks in advance
      a somewhat good Resto Druid, but wants to get better

      Former Blood and Frost DK, back in action.  Things have changed a LOT since I had to spec into DW Frost ;)
      Here is the armory:
      Here is my current rotation for World Quest/overworld play(outside of dungeons):
      HB to Open->OB->OB->RW->FS until RP exhausted/OB is available(I forget to use PoF unless I am going after a rare or planning a aoe burst).
      Should I use KM procs for FSc since I have that in my spec?
      I'm having the following main issues:
      1. I seem to be Rune starved, so that's why I am hitting FS so much.
      2. Survivability can sometimes be an issue if I am not using RW on each cooldown.
      3. Recently got this as my first legendary, unsure if I should actually use it:
      So far the plan is to gather heroic upgrades and patch the class gear, but will welcome any suggestions

      Hey all I'm a returning player and finally hit 110 on my death knight yesterday. I am currently playing a frost dk, but I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. Unholy on the other hand looks pretty sweet... but from what I hear they are in a bad state atm. This might be to early to speculate, but anyone know if buffs are coming this next patch? Should I reroll now before I invest thousands of AP into frost relic? As cool as unholy looks, don't want to play a doomed spec...

      Hey there,
      I am wondering how i can further improve my dmg. I am doing all the things the guide recommends, but i think there is more that i can do in terms of doing DMG. I espacially want to max my dmg at single targets. I m fine with ae, but I think there is more potential. I ve tried a lot different rotation priorities and strategies, but i cant get over 257k dps with my gear. The main problem is, that there are points where my dmg drops below 100k and I think that is the main source for my misery. Can someone have a look at my log? I just did a dummy log cause i think it is the optimal way to figure out the best rotation.

      I come here seeking wisdom, as I am but a mere newb to Fury Warriors (as in, "I've been playing it for 2 days" new).

      From the numbers in the tooltips alone, Whirlwind does more dmg than Furious Slash, especially if you have Wrecking Ball talented (then it does more dmg than Rampage). Considering how you use Furious Slash as a filler already, you might as well get a better one, right? I can't say how it compares to Avatar (its competitor in the talent tier) in dps but it looks promising.
