    Overall:

    Druid: 3.1/5

    Hunter: 3.2/5

    Mage: 3.4/5

    Pally: 3/5

    Priest: 3/5

    Rogue: 3.2/5

    Warlock: 2.8/5

    Warrior: 3.4/5

    Shaman: 3.2/5

    Neutral: 2.7/5

    So, imo, it seems Warrior and Mage were favored in this one, especially Warrior.

    Theres a lot of bad stuff in the neutral, as always.

    I think I might be wrong with the warlock ratings, but we will see when the expac launches.

    Theres a reason I am not a pro HS player lol

    Look at Galakrond cards. 

    Warrior Galakrond is in matching frame - Red Galakrond in red frame. Shaman too (blue Galakrond in blue frame). 

    So why is priest Galakrond purple (the color of warlock frame), Rogue whiteish (the color of Priest frame) and warlock Dark greyish (rogue frame color)?

    They should switch the images to match frame as they match in Warrior and Shaman.

      Or maybe you should revised your theory when confronted with contradicting evidences, maybe ^^

    I'm just a little disappointed to know that Dragonmaw Poacher is going to be waiting at every end of every deck I try to experiment with. Its gets sadder to know that I will be ruining someone else's fund with the same card.

      Yeah, and also the big dragon minion for shaman on turn 4 with spell damage +2 is going to be ruined almost every single game... I just want to try out this stupid card and beat everyone with it lol.

    To be honest, I am very disappointed that there wasn't a 0 mana 1/1 dragon in this expansion.

      Sameeee. They haven't released anything like that this year and it would have been perfect. I guess they don't want cards to low-roll like Dragonqueen Alexstrasza or any of the explorer dragons.

    I was waiting a 1-cost 1/1 Whelp for this expansion. If it won't be in this expansion, it can never be.

    So they thought that it would be so op for deckbuilding, like me.

    Edit: ah and This expansion should be named as "Descent of Powercreeps". That's a better name tbh.

    Im pretty sure were gonna see 1 more legendary in this stream for all non evil classes because it wont be fair for a class like mage to have 2 legendaries while roge has 3 

     

    Dont know probably just my ocd
