    second player has 3 mana on their first turn!

    I actually haven't played in a week so I forgot about this.

    when i go second I usually prefer to drop a two drop on a mana tile and then immediately play another one

    Or do the legendary 0 drop onto a mana tile and get a 4 drop out :rotate:

    I got a 0-cost legendary Lyonar card that stops a minion from being affected by any enemy spells.

    Pairing that up with a ranged minion and a few buffs seems like it could really ruin someone's day.

    Or just use Jax.

    Jax makes 5 ranged minions on the field, and you can buff one at your leisure.

    Welp. Looks like the ladder competition in this game must be soft as hell, 'cause I just hit Gold.

    I blitzed to 12 basically unopposed. Like, streaking 8 wins at a time. With literal garbage, thrown together haphazardly for quests and unlocks, totally untested. 11-10 was where it abruptly got hard. I was floundering for a while. Then I switched to Kara and zooed everyone into oblivion. It was brutal.

    I'll probably do my first Gauntlet tomorrow, now that I've learned a reasonable amount about how the game flows.

    So there's an expansion?

    How do you get it?

    I thought it would be DLC on Steam but it ain't there

    expansion in this case means that there is another type of pack you can purchase with either in-game currency or actual cold hard dollars

    I would, generally speaking, ignore it until you have built up a decent selection of core set rares, although your mileage my vary

    Congrats! Most of the "real" competition is permanently in Diamond+, but it's still something of challenge to get Gold sans Kara.

    expansion in the card game sense, which is to say "A new set, with new booster packs you can buy in the store."

    As a new player is it better to spend my gold on boosters from the core set or the new set?

    i'm going to say Probably Core

    although there are some powerful cards in Shim'zar that specific deck archetypes will want, the core set still has a lot of good glue

    in addition, because they add new cards to the core set every month, the core set has a higher drop rate of higher-value cards than shimzar does, which means you're theoretically getting more spirit if you're getting stuff that you're not interested in playing, which in turn should let you grab whatever Good Shit you want from Shim'zar

    Core Set rares get you closer to unlocking the Sister legendary for that faction, and although not all of them are important to that faction's deckbuilding they are useful tools

    I am shocked, SHOCKED, to learn this game isn't on iOS

    I actually assumed this came out on iOS/Android first and was just now hitting PC

    But they would be upset with me

    The second they asked me to click and drag something I went "oh, this must be a mobile port"

    There's a definite upside to the click-n-drag, which is that it feels ineffably satisfying to take that minion you've buffed the everloving shit out of, the one that's gonna belt the poor sucker you're playing out of the fucking stadium, and draaaaaagging that motherfucker onto the hapless sap.

    Two clicks would get the job done, theoretically, but it doesn't let you luxuriate in the moment.

    It's like dragging that bishop across the wood as the jaws of checkmate snap shut

    I can't tell if I'm pretty good at the game or just most players are very, very bad at it

    Because I've played 15-20 games and lost...1?

    I certainly don't do that well at Hearthstone, that's for sure

    There's no doubt that the ladder is softer than Hearthstone rank-for-rank. Although the percentiles for each might be radically different for all I know.

    I tried pushing a little further with my garbage Kara deck and hit 8. I don't see myself hitting 5 with the cards I have, though, so I stopped and switched over to Gauntlet. First run was 5-3 Magmar, which I was happy with given that I was 2-2 at one point (30 gold, 50 spirit, and an awful epic). Current run is 4-1 Vetruvian with a MUCH better deck. Starting to realize that I don't understand obelisk placement, though.

    Signed on and discovered the new patch granted a bunch of prismatics to older players. Pretty neat, even if Prismatics are like... the ugliest implementation of "premium" cards in any CCG.

    Are season ladder rewards biased in favor of new cards, or do I just have weird luck? 'Cause my gold 8 chest gave me Quartermaster Gauj and Night Watcher.

    Also my Legendary Quester achievement popped and gave me a Spelljammer. Hooray for actually useful rewards!

    the season ladder rewards are all the new cards they add in the monthly patches

    https://news.duelyst.com/duelyst-patch-1-74/

    patch noootes

    Kara is getting nerfed: every minion you play this turn has +1/+1. So no more permanent banking minions in your hand, but effects that generate multiple minions will now benefit
    Saberspine Seal is going from 1 to 2 mana
    Siphon Energy has to hit a dude next to your general
    Ephemeral Shroud going from a 2/2 to a 1/1
    Zenrui the Blightspawned getting an extra health point but costs 6 now
    and Kron is going from a 4/6 to a 4/4
