    I’m at 6/9. Still need 75 wins for Garrosh, 250ish for Anduin and around 300 for Rexxar. Looking forward to completing the grind as I don’t particularly enjoy playing these 3 classes. 

    My first one was Shaman, then Paladin, Mage, Warlock, Rogue and Druid.

    Sometimes the same is different, but mostly it's the same.

    At least, those 3 classes all have viable lists to compete, especially Priest in standard, which isn't that common! ^^

    Good luck on the grind!

    New portraits, new achievements ; is an other chapter of The Grind just started ?
    Receiving those new portraits made me want to play those classes, but also made me regain some motivation in playing classes I have left underplayed since the golden completion. Only 9 shorts with Paladin and 20'ish on the Priest side, not that I care too much about that skin tho ; that facial expression combine with the overbite gave it a repulsive je-ne-sais-quoi... 
    Guess I'll be playing some Mage and Shaman for a bit!


    Edit : More like 80'ish short with Priest ... memory playing tricks ^^

    I had dusted my Boom after the nerf since I had just gotten the golden portrait a month or two before, but now I kinda wanna crafts it again, loving the look of the new Garrosh portrait.

    Other than that I’m around 150 off from Hunter for the new portrait, but I just don’t really like it

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    My first golden hero was Priest, but I got it way back in the days of Dragon Priest from Blackrock Mountain. Priest has been my favorite since I started playing. I'm proud to say I never played Raza or Big Priest. I'm about 4 wins shy of 1000. My second was Paladin and he came from a build of Murloc Pally back in the days of Anyfin can Happen. The next closest are Mage (Tempo mage with exploding runes was fun), Shaman (I loved evolve Shaman with the deathknight), and Hunter (mech hunter has been fun) that are all around 400. I've never been good with Rogue, don't like the style of play for Warlock, and find Warrior boring. Druid I've only ever found entertaining with the Hadronox deck.

    Unfortunately, common sense isn't as common as it should be.

    The compulsive completionist in me is so frustrated by this. I just got all 9 golden earlier this year, and all are still below 600. I want those portraits but I don't want to grind again. Plus I've been playing a lot less ladder recently since the adventures are so fun. What to do? (First world problems)

    9/9 since October(ish) 2017. The new patch kicked me the new Priest, Paladin, and Shaman (which I love!) and the others are 900 or more, except for Warlock at 800. Should be a fun few months getting the rest. Might take a while since life has made my game time much more scarce over the last few months. 

     

    Now you kids are probably saying to yourselves, "Hey Matt, how can we get back on the right track?"

    Getting closer and closer to the 1000 wins with Priest and Warrior.
    Hunter is getting close too, but I'm in no rush to add it to my collection of unplayed skins ^^

    So many wins with so many classes... I'm truly amazed.

    My only golden hero is Anduin (666, so ironic lol), followed by Rexxar (413), Valeera (189) and... that's it. All the other classes are below 100 wins.

    One reason of these records might be the fact that for the first year I played mostly in Casual mode, whereas I don't go there since June: playing stupid stuff at rank 5 is a lot more rewarding than doing it in Casual.

    I guess I'll have to grind a lot to get even a single new portrait!

    I just got my golden portrait for Hunter, aka Batman. Next up is Paladin, with 310 wins in the bank.

    I got mine in the following order:

    Mage

    Paladin

    Warrior

    Warlock

    Shaman

    Rogue

    Priest

    Hunter

    Still need Druid.  I’m about 110 away.  I like the new 1000 portraits, but I was so excited to be done with the grind for Goldens.  Not looking forward to having another drive to get these portraits, but in the end will want them all, even wonky faced Rexxar

    Almost done with Warrior & Priest - less than a 100 wins away from the 1k mark.
    Hunter & Shaman are in the 200 wins away from a thousand ranked win.
    And then Mage & Druid are a little behind, with just over 600 recorded victories with each.

    Mage is in a good spot - wildly speaking - to pursue that goal.
    Embiggen Druid should also help reaching the milestone.
    Galakrond's list gave my warrior and shamy a little boost, but that was momentarily.
    Hunter is still highrolling its highlander's glory
    ... and well, I'm a little bored of playing priest for that last sprint to a 1000

    Almost 4 months later, here's how things have changed for me

    Priest - got a couple more wins and now I'm around 710

    Hunter - finally got that Golden Rexxar

    Rogue - unexpectedly I hit the 500 wins with this class too (even before Hunter which was missing just 90 wins)

    I've also improved (some slightly, some in a more remarkable way) my scores with all the other 6 classes and I wonder which one will be the next.

    To be honest I'm just one Embiggen short for the complete meta list, but I'm not sure I want to play that. Also, I started taking a look to the "wild side" as well, and it gives me a lot more options.

    Finally added Wanderer Rexxar to my Wall of Fame. 1.000 wins Jaina is closer to join him than another class to 500. Maybe I'll go Warrior next.

    I notice I am confused. Something I believe isn't true. How do I know what I think I know?

    Oh yeah, I'm so glad this thread never dies. Necromancy isn't always a bad thing after all :D

    These are my numbers 1 month after my last post

    Priest: 735 - If Raza is going to be unnerfed I dare to say King Anduin will be my first 1k skin

    Hunter: 553 - Dragon Hunter is fun and all, but racing down your opponents isn't

    Rogue: 694 - Imagine paying mana for your cards 4Head

    Improved Shaman and Warlock, but to be fair I haven't played much in the last weeks due to other stuff.

    I have paladin, hunter, warlock, mage and shaman in golden. (in that order) 

    Now I'm working on druid, but I play all classes more or less equally.

     

    And now I made priest, druid and rogue. Only warrior to go now, but there i stuck at like 250 wins. Long way to go...
