Re: Hearthstone

Yeah, you get a wide spectrum which you have to learn from playing the deck of when you want to hero power. You have Warlock at the very top with the best hero power in the game and then on the other end, you have Shaman with it's horrible hero power. It's good in that you have it when you want to use it, but it's not always the best choice.

Thanks, as always, for the enlightening responses.

Re: Hearthstone

Agreed on Hero power generally being a negative tempo play and is entirely dependent on type of deck and board state as to how useful it is.

You should try and reroll your 40 gold quests into 50s 60s or 100s/packs if possible.

Re: Hearthstone

Go to your "Quests" page. Once a day you can 'x' one out, and you'll get another in its place. Get rid of your 40's, so you can get better ones instead, with a little luck.

Re: Hearthstone

Nice. Tried it last night, traded a 40 for a 60. Most depressing thing right now is the grind of getting my classes that haven't finished unlocking cards up to 10. I feel like I need to make that happen so that I can make informed choices heading forward about what I really like to play, but it is either boring against the AI or depressing against real people. Shoulda used my climb to 20 to do it

Currently finding myself rising to 19 and then dropping to 20. Not worried about it yet as it is a nice stable way to win some games and get some experience.

I guess I spoke too soon. Looks like the combo among other things is getting the hit soon. For the newer players here, always disenchant every card that Blizzard will give full dust for (this time it's: Ancient of Lore, Force of Nature, Keeper of the Grove, Ironbeak Owl, Big Game Hunter, Hunter's Mark, Blade Flurry, Knife Juggle, Leper Gnome, Arcane Golem, Molten Giant, Master of Disguise). You can always recraft it later using the exact same dust you got from disenchanting it for full.

Re: Hearthstone

What's the point of enchanting and disenchanting cards?

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: Hearthstone

So I made it to 7/9 and it's probably a time for a break again. Not sure Hearthstone is really the right game for me. Easy enough to play for twenty or thirty minutes, but I tried Hex when it was released a couple of days ago on Steam and it is consuming my thoughts.

You can use dust to create new cards. If you, for instance, wanted one of those cool Knife Jugglers, you could craft one for 40 dust. You *get* dust, for the most part, by disenchanting cards you already have. It's all in the "Crafting" tab of your collection window.

You can only have two of anything in your deck, so if you get a third, that can be disenchanted for dust. If you go into "Crafting" in your collection, the "Mass Disenchant" button will disenchant all of your extra stuff for you. If you have three Annoyotrons and three Sludge Belchers, or whatever, and you hit Mass Disenchant, it would scrap the extra of each. You can also disenchant individual cards. If you get an extra Secret Keeper, and you have no desire to have a Secret Keeper, you can just scrap it and get a little dust. Anything gold is worth more, and the rarer something is, the more it's worth, too.

Vegie pointed out that some cards will give you back as much dust as they cost to make, which I did not know. Interesting.

I only rarely craft things. I have a pretty decent-sized pile of dust, and a huge pile of coins, because I'm not min-maxing like Vegie and some of our other friends here. Bless their hearts! I only occasionally craft. You don't have to do it, heaven knows it's not required. But that's what it is, as best I can explain it.

edit: You may be wondering about my reference to coins. I suspect that players who do a lot of crafting have few coins because they buy packs just to get as many extras and undesirable or gold cards as they can, which they will then disenchant for dust.

That's understandable. I go through phases of Hearthstone myself, and feel myself phasing out currently as well. That said, I would still log on sometime next week after Tuesday when the new expansion launches, just to get the 3 free packs they're giving out. You'll also get a free legendary and two cards that buff it as well with those packs, so you shouldn't pass the opportunity up!

Just so people know: you won't get back the full refund on those cards until Tuesday next week when the patch goes live, so don't be in a hurry to disenchant them yet. I've already heard stories of people hearing the news and mass disenchanting only to regret it, so make sure you check how much dust you're getting for them.
