    Trying to figure out how much dust I can get to make a few more legends/epics. Would you dust these legendaries?

    Gonk
    Chameleos
    Krag'wa
    Griftah
    Harbinger Celestia
    Hack the System (warrior quest)

    I have those, plus a bunch of wild epics and gold cards. Most cards that are wild and I've kept, I've kept because I just like the look, but if I can fill out newer decks, meh. Right now, I am liking:

    Murloc Pally (don't have Finley)
    Highlander Mage (don't have Siamat, Luna's Pocket Galaxy, King Phaoris)
    Midrange Hunter (no new cards from current set in this deck)
    Murloc Shaman (no new cards from current set in this deck)

    What I have:

    I've been thinking about crafting:
    -Siamat
    -King Phaoris
    -Dinotamer Brann
    -Armagedillo
    -Wild Bloodstinger
    -Tortollan Pilgrim/Puzzle Box of Yogg-Saron (2nd copies of each)
    -Livewire Lance
    -Vulpera Scoundrel

    From the new set, I have:
    -Druid Quest
    -Warrior Quest
    -Reno
    -Zephrys the Great

    Thoughts? I'm just over here calculating how much potential dust I can have to use. Just thinking outloud.

    edit: So, I have estimated around 6485+ dust I could get. I might just bite the bullet, but not sure what else I NEED to craft. Like, I want Luna's, but that rotates next year! I feel like Siamat needs that for Highlander, no?

    So, I am sitting at about 7k or so dust, with more to be had. I wound up dusting most of my wild cards (commons, rares, etc).

    Crafted Luna's, Siamat, and Phaoris. And then I went and dusted a shit ton of stuff from previous sets (wild) and I am at like 11k dust now. Haha.

    I need like 2-3 legends (subject 9, brann, something else), 1-2 epics (rat trap and lucha trap guy) to play secret/highlander hunter. I need 2 legends for warrior (armadillo and "pick 5 cards").

    Should I go craft crazy? I have a bomb warrior deck already made. That makes me want to configure a shaman deck, but I feel like shaman isn't great right now?
    So the quest shaman is super fun, but warrior is amazing. It's just so good.

    Warrior with the armadillo/taunts? Like, that armadillo card just looks cool. I don't even care what it does or if it is good. Ha.

    I have murloc shaman and paladin (no legend pally mulroc) already made.
    I mean pretty much everytime I see an armadillo deck it's tough to beat. It's like a regular warrior deck only with Armadillo, Frightened flunky, and tomb warden. And I either get lucky and they can't curve well, or I get lucky and they don't have a clear in their hand when I flood the board...That's it.

    I guess I'll craft those two then.

    Should I forget secret/highlander hunter for now? I felt guilty crafting Luna's when it is rotating next year. I feel the same way about Subject 9. But I do like hunter. I don't know if I see Brann lasting in future expansions.

    I always find Arena a bit tougher right around an expansion release. My guess is that "casuals" are too busy blowing their resources on packs and playing with new decks to bother with it till constructed settles down and gets boring again. So I wouldn't get too demoralized about performing bad right around now.

    Either that or I'm just slower to learn how to Arena new sets.

    I'm also heavily considering just dropping the game since I haven't had any fun since the expac dropped. And investing time into getting gud so that I can enjoy the game again isn't enticing to me.

    It's also a good thing to be able to recognize this and step away! This game sucks and it's good to take as much time as you can off before relapsing.

    Yeah the game isn’t going anywhere. I still lurk and post here occasionally but I’ve played maybe a handful of times in the past 4 months and rarely for longer than 20 minutes. The game just isn’t doing it for me right now, and I’ve also gotten heavily into magic so other stuff is scratching the tcg itch.

    But if/when the game looks cool again, I’ll come back.

    Arena does feel way bombier than it used to. A lot of games ended via one person dropping an epic or legend that instantly blew the game wide open.

    Honestly, I used to say wait until crafting or dusting until the meta shakes out, but lately the discovery process of new expansions is literally the best part of the Hearthstone ladder bar none... not playing the best most refined meta decks that come out afterwards.

    So really, just craft and play what you want IMO. Enjoy your time playing decks that feel interesting to you in an uneasy meta, and the game will be vastly more interesting than playing the same handful of decks against each other again and again.

    This is good advice.

    Like, I'm seeing lots of warriors, so I'm playing quest paladin when I want to rank up (and sometimes quest paladin is boring as, but other times super fun), but often going to plot twist warlock or big paladin or various other kinda janky but fun decks. Cause it's fun.

    Maybe in a few weeks the sweet sweet food for quest paladin that is warrior will disappear and I won't be able to play it anymore and win. Or maybe it'll become a tier 1 meta deck and I won't like it that much cause I see it everywhere and everyone techs 8 million silences and board clears. I don't know.

    I'm missing a lot of crucial Warlock cards, both for Zoo and Quest (although I do have the Quest card, blegh), so I let Brode take the wheel and the autocomplete gave me a Highlander Zoo deck.

    I played 6 games (2-4) and didn't get to play Zephrys once. The only game I drew him I was against Bomb Warrior so he was disabled. :|

    i'm still curious about how hunter quest would perform in mech hunter

    i feel like that deck has enough tokens that it could maybe work. you'd have to run double UTH and probably the 7 rush scarab spell? but i think it could work. would be one hell of an activator for flark...

    but i don't have the quest and i ain't crafting it

    Playing a magnetized mech isn't summoning a minion so your primary means of pushing damage doesn't progress your quest.

    I beat a dillo deck with zeph.

    God that was amazing, he had a dillo with 2 other super beafy taunts up. and what do you know mass dispel (silence all enemies). I also had options for blood lust and black knight.

    That card is so good. And with murlock Paladin it has gotten me to lethal a few times.
