Hearthstone New Player Guide:

1. Install Game
2. Play through intro stuff (Mage training)
3. Unlock every class by defeating them
4. Choose a class and level it up to 10 in any mode (You earn less XP against the AI, but will almost always win)
5. Do this with all the other classes (100 free gold!)
6. Go back and defeat all 9 Expert AI classes (100 free gold!)
7. Choose a class and level it up to 20 in any mode
8. Play an Arena run (it's free so don't worry about going 0-3)
9. Disenchant a card (typically a common 5 dust card) (95 free dust!)
10. Add some PA folks to your friends list and observe them winning a game (free pack!)
11. Find friends or relatives and play one game on an iPhone, iPad, Samsung phone, and Samsung Tablet (1 free pack per system!)
12. Spend accumulated Gold (or purchase for $25) to buy the wings of Naxxramus (700 per wing)**
13. Complete Naxxramus completely for 30 new cards
14. Spend accumulated Gold (or purchase for $25) to buy the wings of Blackrock Mountain (700 per wing)**
15. Complete Blackrock Mountain completely for 31 new cards
16. Complete daily quests, and win any 3 games, to earn gold (in Casual or Constructed)
17. Try and reach as high a rank as possible each season, but at least aim for ranks 20, 15, 10, or 5. (Free cards/dust)
18. Enter and win one Tavern Brawl each week (Free pack, but Wed-Sun only!)
19. Either spend Gold on packs of cards (100/pack - Classic for a long time) or Arena (150/run)
20. Repeat steps 16 and 19
** = You can save a lot of time by buying the Adventure modes for $25 each. Grinding 3500 gold will take a long time to acquire, but it is free.

Arena can earn more cards and Gold once you get good at playing it. You always get a pack of cards in Arena regardless of your record. Rewards increase as you get more wins. Therefore, earning 50 Gold will have you break even since you get a 100 Gold pack of cards automatically. 50 Gold is about 3-4 wins depending on your rewards luck. Anything more than that is pure profit. Remember, Arena rewards Classic, GvG, or TGT packs.


A special word from me:

Hearthstone is a fantastic and addicting game to play. The learning curve isn't overly steep, but remembering all the cards is tough to do. BE PREPARED TO LOSE A LOT AT FIRST! If you're new to the game, there are people that have been playing for over a year and have most, if not every, card in the game. It sucks getting smashed by what seems like a legion of Legendary minions, but keep going. Eventually you'll have your own Epic and Legendary cards and can hang with anyone. Besides, Legendary cards don't always mean instant wins. In many cases, you can sub out other common/basic cards in their place.

One last note, never EVER feel bad about asking for help or netdecking popular decks. Everyone does it (I know I certainly do!) and there's no shame in it. Creating decks by yourself can be fun and inventive, but there are people out there that play professionally and spend months creating optimal decks. Not only will netdecking help you create optimal decks, but you'll start to understand why certain cards are good and find interactions you may not have previously thought of. Finally, netdecking will help you know what your opponent is playing too. When everyone is netdecking, you can much more easily predict what they have have left in their deck/hand. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

So yeah, ask for help here often and netdeck popular decks. :)


Daily Quests and Gold earning:

You can earn gold by completing a daily quest or by winning 3 games against a human opponent in either Casual or Ranked modes. Ironically, Casual mode is more difficult than Ranked because you aren't as readily matched up to someone of your rank. Other notes about earning gold:

1. When you win 3 games, you earn 10 gold. You can earn up to 100 gold/day this way.
2. If you get a quest you don't like, you can "reroll" it by hitting the red "X" button in the corner of the quest.
3. You can only reroll one quest per day.
4. You can reroll a previously rerolled quest.
5. Try to not have more than 3 active quests or you'll lose out on a new daily quest.
6. The "Win 7 games in any mode" quest is worth 100 gold. In addition, wins against the AI count.
7. The "Spectate" quest allows you to earn a free pack of Classic cards just by watching another person win. FREE CARDS WOOO!
8. You can complete multiple quests at the same time (ie. Win 2 games with Paladin/Rogue and Win 2 games with Paladin/Warrior both get credit if you win with Paladin)


Card rarity, identification, and dust values:

1. Look at the center of the card for a gem.
2. If the card has no gem, it is a "soulbound" card and cannot be crafted or dusted. Basically, it's a starting card.
3. If the gem is white, the card is common. These cards can be crafted for 40 dust or dusted for 5.
4. If the gem is blue, the card is rare. These cards can be crafted for 100 dust or dusted for 20.
5. If the gem is purple, the card is epic. These cards can be crafted for 400 dust or dusted for 100.
6. If the gem is orange, the card is legendary. These cards can be crafted for 1600 dust or dusted for 400.
7. Dusting a golden version of a card earns you the creation value. Example: A golden rare dusts for 100 instead of 20.
8. It's highly recommended you dust golden cards unless you don't have two copies of it already.


Supplemental Card Creation Guide:

1. Do not dust cards until you have more than 2 copies of a card
2. Unless you're committed to a class, it's better to craft neutral minions first (Sylvannas, Dr. Boom, Ragnaros, etc)
3. Dusting Gold cards earn lots more dust (unless you care about that bling look)
4. Try to only create Epic or Legendary (commons and rares will come via packs)
5. Ask us here before dusting something like a Legendary (see Legendary crafting link below)


Ranked Rewards

Each season lasts one month. At the end of the season, you'll earn a reward based on your highest rank you earned during the season. The rewards come in the form of golden cards and extra dust. For newer players, the golden cards can be dusted for a lot of dust (see dust list above) allowing you to create better cards. For pros, it's an opportunity to bling out the cards they want or stockpile dust for the next expansion. Because of this reward system, you should always try and get as high as possible each season. And don't worry about losing ranks, you still get the reward based on your best result and not your ending rank. The rewards by rank are in the spoiler below:
Rank 20 - 1 golden common card, 5 dust
Rank 19 - 1 golden common card, 10 dust
Rank 18 - 1 golden common card, 15 dust
Rank 17 - 1 golden common card, 20 dust
Rank 16 - 1 golden common card, 25 dust
Rank 15 - 1 golden common card, 1 golden rare card, 5 dust
Rank 14 - 1 golden common card, 1 golden rare card, 10 dust
Rank 13 - 1 golden common card, 1 golden rare card, 15 dust
Rank 12 - 1 golden common card, 1 golden rare card, 20 dust
Rank 11 - 1 golden common card, 1 golden rare card, 25 dust
Rank 10 - 2 golden common cards, 1 golden rare card, 5 dust
Rank 9 - 2 golden common cards, 1 golden rare card, 10 dust
Rank 8 - 2 golden common cards, 1 golden rare card, 15 dust
Rank 7 - 2 golden common cards, 1 golden rare card, 20 dust
Rank 6 - 2 golden common cards, 1 golden rare card, 25 dust
Rank 5 - 2 golden common cards, 1 golden epic card, 5 dust
Rank 4 - 2 golden common cards, 1 golden epic card, 10 dust
Rank 3 - 2 golden common cards, 1 golden epic card, 15 dust
Rank 2 - 2 golden common cards, 1 golden epic card, 20 dust
Rank 1 - 2 golden common cards, 1 golden epic card, 25 dust
Legendary - 3 golden common cards, 1 golden epic card


Important Turns to Learn:

As you play, you'll encounter a turn where your entire board of minions gets wiped out. At first you'll think this is unfair, until you realize that it isn't all that bad. Every class has Area of Effect (AoE) attacks to deal with lots of minions. Sometimes they are single cards, other times combos of cards. Either way, you need to learn when to expect these clears from happening.

The most common and widely known version of an AoE is Flamestrike from Mage. That spell does 4 damage to all minions for 7 mana. While that is a lot, and can easily swing the game in her favor, remember that it isn't unstoppable. On Turn 6, try not to play any additional minions that have less than 4 health. Or, put out minions that have deathrattles that spawn new minions (Piloted Shredder, Nurubian Egg, etc). That way, even if your board is mostly cleared, you still have minions to control and attack with.

Below is a list of very common board clear counts by class and mana. These are pretty important to remember and should be in the back of your mind every time you play. REMEMBER THAT THESE MANA COUNTS GO DOWN BY ONE IF YOUR OPPONENT IS GOING SECOND AND HASN'T USED THE COIN YET!
  • Warrior: Whirlwind [1 mana] and Death's Bite [4 mana, weapon] deathrattle (1 damage to all minions), Brawl [5 mana] (destroy all minions but one chosen randomly), Revenge [2 mana] (deal 1 damage to all minions or 3 damage if health is 12 or less)
  • Paladin: Consecration [4 mana] (2 damage to all enemies), Equality [2 mana] (change the health of all minions to 1, often combined with Wild Pyromancer [2 mana] to clear the board), Avenging Wrath [6 mana] (deal 8 damage randomly to enemy characters)
  • Hunter: Explosive Trap [2 mana] (Secret, 2 damage to all enemies when your hero is attacked), Unleash the Hounds sort of (summon a 1/1 with Charge for each enemy minion)
  • Shaman: Lightning Storm [3 mana, then 2 mana next turn] (2-3 damage to all enemy minions)
  • Druid: Swipe [4 mana] (4 damage to one enemy, 1 damage to all other enemies), Starfall [5 mana] (5 damage to one enemy minion, or 2 damage to all enemy minions), Poison Seeds sort of [4 mana] (destroy all minions and replace them with 2/2 treants)
  • Rogue: Blade Flurry [2 mana] (destroy your weapon and deal its attack value to all enemies, often comboed with rogue hero power + deadly poison for a 3 damage sweep), Fan of Knives [3 mana] (deal 1 damage to all enemy minions, draw a card), Dark Iron Skulker [5 mana] (deals 2 damage to all undamaged enemy minions)
  • Priest: Holy Nova [5 mana] (2 damage to all enemies, 2 healing to all friendly characters), Auchenai Soulpriest [4 mana] + Circle of Healing [0 mana] (4 damage to all minions)
  • Mage: Arcane Explosion [2 mana] (1 damage to all enemy minions), Blizzard [6 mana] (2 damage and freeze to all enemy minions), Flamestrike [7 mana] (4 damage to all enemy minions)
  • Warlock: Hellfire [4 mana] (3 damage to all characters), Shadowflame [4 mana] (destroy a friendly minion and deal its attack value to all enemy minions), Demonwrath [3 mana] (2 damage to all non-Demon minions)

Here's a cheat-sheet for all the Secrets in the game:

All secrets in one spot!


Adventure Modes and New Cards:

Hearthstone has been out for over a year now and has seen a lot of new content. These come in the form of Adventure Modes (single player stuff) and Expansion packs (new cards!). All of this new content can be found below. PLEASE NOTE! There is no reason to bang your head against the wall to complete Heroic boss fights. Completing them is very hard and the only reward is a special card back. Come back to them later after getting more cards in your inventory.

General Game Information:

The game has FOUR play modes:
  • Play - Build a 30-card deck and fight people in ranked or unranked matches.
  • Solo Adventures - Practice against the AI or enter the Single Player themed adventures like The Curse of Naxxramas and Blackrock Mountain.
  • Arena - Pay 150g, then pick a hero from a random selection of 3 heroes and draft a deck from a random pool of cards presented to you three at a time. Then battle other people who went through the same process to receive treasures!
  • Tavern Brawl - Free to enter after level 20. Rules change each week. Rewards a free pack after first victory.


Grobian's list of less intuitive facts:
  • Max handsize is 10 cards. Any card over that is drawn then immediately destroyed.
  • You can't have more than 7 minions on the board.
  • If you draw from an empty deck, each "card" you draw instead damages you, beginning at 1 damage and increasing by 1 damage each draw.
  • If multiple things happen at the same time (e.g. trigger at the end of the turn) they happen in the order their respective cards have been played.
  • There are hidden quests/achievements that award gold, notably: 100g for beating all Expert AIs, 100g for playing every class to level 10 and 300g for 100 wins total.
  • The Shaman hero power always calls one of the 4 totems that isn't out yet. If you get a totem bounced to your hand, you can play a second one, though.
  • The hunter spell Animal Companion just calls a random of the 3 possible minions.
  • The Warlock spell Sense Demons gives you 1/1 imps for 1 mana if you don't have (any more) demons in your deck.
  • Stealth overrides Taunt, not the other way around.
  • Stealth is only for the enemy, you can buff your stealthed minions.
  • Priest: Shadowform refreshes your hero power, so you can use it twice in a turn.
  • Druid: Wild Growth at 10 mana crystals awards you a spell "Excess Mana" which draws a card for 0.

Here's a deck-tracking google spreadsheet made by our own Muffintron:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1a7ucOq8Jv3Ooes694eXxIOdX-zsCuFA_PeSyuVZsUvA/edit?usp=sharing

From Muffintron:

I've got it set-up so that I have a folder for each of the classes, and a spreadsheet for each deck, then I use individual sheets within that spreadsheet to keep track of the deck changes over time.

Just go File -> Make a copy to get a copy on to your google drive.

To use: put in the cards for the deck: Quantity, Mana cost, Name, Type (Spell, Weapon or Minion) and Rarity (Soulbound, Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary and Naxxramas).

The sheet should take care of the rest.

    After realizing that Gnomish is a basic card I wanted to see what other basic neutrals still see play. I think the only ones are Swamp Ooze and Wolfrider, and sometimes Novice Engineer in some Freeze lists.

    I just can't get excited enough about this brawl to put any effort into it. Usually I like brawls that put different twists on game play (my favorite brawl so far is still the summoner one), but this one just feels off. I imagine its fueled partly because the types of decks that favor this format are ones I don't play/like (lock or combo decks). I just kinda went with a weapon warrior deck, and tried 3-4 times last night, didn't win any.

    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. ~ Terry Pratchett

    I agree so much. Pick Warlock and play zoo to win your pack. This brawl is just devoid of any zany fun bonkers interactions wich is what I think brawl needs to be a break from standard HS.

    Zoo seems like it'd be really bad in this Brawl? You have to whittle your opponent's health away aggressively, but as you do that, they get free minions to fight back with.

    I've definitely beat Zoo before using burn Shaman and freeze Mage. Use the free minions + totems to slow Zoo down, then take over the mid-game with Frost Nova / Lightning Storm, and smash Warlock in face with direct damage.

    If anything, the version of Warlock to play in this should be Handlock, imo.

    As a very new player, just wanted to thank you for the excellent OP, which has been really helpful to me. I've played a lot with the starter mage pack and it's surprisingly good. I've beaten some packs with legendaries in them and managed to get to rank 19. Also grateful to EU PA players who gracefully accepted my friend invite and allowed me to watch and learn.

    Hey @ObiFett I was doing some more thinking about your Control Paladin deck, I think running Deathlords might be a really good idea actually. Stalls out the game, anti-aggro, huge pain to deal with. And it feeds right into Enter The Coliseum, so them getting a minion off it really doesn't matter much. Even if it's something large and threatening, you can just follow up with Humility/Aldor.

    I actually got the idea from going up against a Control Warrior with double Deathlords and double Brawl. He'd drop Deathlord, and whatever popped out he'd just Brawl away with the rest of the board. It was a pretty cool idea.

    Smart, I like it.

    I'm like right on the edge of crafting Tirion and Eadric to see if I can make this work. I think its a viable deck, but I won't know until I have those power pieces.

    Okay patron warriors are fucking stupid
    I can build up the board and bring him within lethal range only for the dude to undo everything while filling up his entire board in one single swoop
    Granted I got lucky and have a drake & 2 dmg aoe combo so I barely won but it's so freaking frustrating just watching the other player using the entire turn for his patrons animation

    Patrons aren't the worst part of that deck, though. It's the Frothing Berserkers that let them do 48 damage from an empty board. Patron in that deck is bad but counterable, but getting one or two berserkers with some whirlwinds is the broken bit (especially since the more board you have against them the harder they hit you for).

    I just can't get excited enough about this brawl to put any effort into it. Usually I like brawls that put different twists on game play (my favorite brawl so far is still the summoner one), but this one just feels off. I imagine its fueled partly because the types of decks that favor this format are ones I don't play/like (lock or combo decks). I just kinda went with a weapon warrior deck, and tried 3-4 times last night, didn't win any.

    I agree so much. Pick Warlock and play zoo to win your pack. This brawl is just devoid of any zany fun bonkers interactions wich is what I think brawl needs to be a break from standard HS.

    Zoo seems like it'd be really bad in this Brawl? You have to whittle your opponent's health away aggressively, but as you do that, they get free minions to fight back with.

    I've definitely beat Zoo before using burn Shaman and freeze Mage. Use the free minions + totems to slow Zoo down, then take over the mid-game with Frost Nova / Lightning Storm, and smash Warlock in face with direct damage.

    If anything, the version of Warlock to play in this should be Handlock, imo.

    Nah, dont go face. Just keep the board locked down and keep tapping to keep up with your opponents health. Will prob loose to face decks like you say but I didnt see any non warlocks on EU at least. Beat a handlock too even though that is better if you have the cards. Maybe I just played bad players last night. Quit after my 5 win quest was done. 0 losses...

    There is a special type of disappointment that comes from opening a Legendary that you already have. Especially if you only have 4 Legendaries from TGT and you so bady want another.

    On one hand you feel bad because it's so much less valuable than you'd hoped. On the other hand you feel bad because you shouldn't feel bad that you opened a Legendary.

    I played a dragon priest in this brawl and won. I kept healing him which was rough. I'm healing him AND wasting 2 mana to avoid a minion. Barely worth it. Finally I got lethal but then he dropped two 8/8s with a defender of argus between them. shadow word: death, shadow word: death, and to the face.

    That'll teach you to say "thank you" when I heal you, you smarmy bastard.

    Lost to a priest in brawl that healed up more than 4x his health and ONLY won at the end when his last card was a prophet and he had and auchunai out that I could not have counterd the last round. 4 damage and I ad 4 left. He was in fatigue mode and only had 1 card left in his hand. sooooooo close.

    Okay patron warriors are fucking stupid
    I can build up the board and bring him within lethal range only for the dude to undo everything while filling up his entire board in one single swoop
    Granted I got lucky and have a drake & 2 dmg aoe combo so I barely won but it's so freaking frustrating just watching the other player using the entire turn for his patrons animation


    Congratulations! You are the first <I hate popular deck> poster of the new thread. You get... nothing!

    Oh oh, what do I get for going second?!

    Secrets Paladin is such a fantastic deck that makes me really love HS and the designers behind MC. Let me just poop out some the strongest early cards like minibot and muster for a few turns, then drop MC on turn 6, dr. boom on turn 7, and the other MC on turn 8. Then let's see if you managed to draw into enough answers as you were frantically trying to clear my board. I'm so clever! My play is brilliant. I used to grind face hunter all day, but now I found a deck that makes me feel even smarter.

    They just need to buff face hunter again. Maybe add Skill Command: 6 mana, deal 6 damage, if you have a beast, deal 12 damage instead and draw a card. The face should be the place.

    thanks patron warrior, for saying well played turn 5 when you made 4 patrons

    truly you're a genius, and me a lowly druid with no way to deal with it

    keep playing that super fair and fun deck. I'll be over here wishing I didn't like this game.

    They almost made them 4/2s, but nooo, gotta let them multiply twice.

    The fun thing about patron is how you don't get to play cards ever. I think that's my favorite part of facing it.

    On a happier note. My ridiculous mostly spells tempo Mage deck is actually doing really well despite being put together mostly for funnies. As it happens, Antonidas, Rhonin and Malygos are a very fun set of win conditions. I'll post a list of anyone is interested.

    I kinda like this Brawl. Played a Crusher-esque Shaman with Lightbane, Windfury, Ancestral Spirit, Ancestral Healing, etc. It's actually what I tried when TGT first came out. May revisit the deck idea.
