I'm at level 80 right now ( no bonus) with 70% achievement hunting down, there are a few that will likely be impossible for me to do due to rarity, but this has been by far the easiest achievement one to grind IMO.
The Voyage meta started out fresh, but now I rarely see innovative decks which is a shame, as a warlock main it was painful early and I don't really enjoy playing with or against curses.
Faelin is a perfect free legendary, really pleased with that decision by blizz. I also really enjoy dredge and sunken, overall a decent and flavorful expansion.
Currently at level 145, not bad given I skipped an entire month just to refresh and reduce the burnout of playing sometimes.
As much as I love Kazakusan and playing it, I think it was a bit of a mistake, the deckbuilding restriction is negligible especially in wild.
I can't even imagine being 400 with a month to spare lol well done!
I have played off and on since release and don't have a maxed fully maxed out merc yet, I do have several approaching there.
My 2 cents is that while it's semi fun, the idea of grinding that much to have a merc be viable in PVP and the linear progression of new mercs ( meaning ranks 4-5 are more important) is not worth it.
It reminds me a lot of vanilla HS where we all know the gold and dust economy were horrendous but it was the best digital card game so we just grinned and played along. Alot has changed since 2013.
While I understand grinding is part of the mechanism of the game, it's too much, the idea of grinding even 3 mercs per expansion seems daunting if it's not your "main" game mode
Currently level 61 with no tavern pass and current weekly quests still to go.
I've mostly been achievement hunting with what I have available, 40% done so far, Xmas break helps as well. I don't mind the meta so much other than going against priest or Qwarrior/Qwarlock. Thankfully, freeze shaman achievement hunting = easy wins against Pirate Garrosh.
My favorite thing to do so far has been to have Yogg in my freeze shaman and get to play his effect 3 times total with parrot.
I take umbrage with your first bullet point and subsequent follow ups.
The comparison to AAA games is very apt in my opinion and the idea that many games do not have sustained patches or events is strange. I can name many games off the top of my head that I've played that have had years of patches after being played, sometimes even if I bought the game on discount. (Fifa, Witcher series, Mass Effect Series, Halo Series, DLC's are equivalent or exceed the season events in many instances). Heck Persona even put out a new entire game with Royale. Total cost between 60-100 depending on how many things you buy
I know that many FPS games have similar content.
To suggest that it only be compared to other CCGs is the disingenuous aspect here imo.
The quality of life improvements are things that should have been implemented since the beginning of the game, let alone 5-6 years after launch....about that "stream of content and events". Do you remember how it felt to open 4 of the same legendary? I do, and that happened for 4-5 years. I encourage you to look up on youtube psychological, gambling, and addictive tricks that game companies are utilizing to encourage you to spend your $.
The game is fun and I enjoy it, but I can no longer in good conscience give them money.
I see we have been randomly downvoted for sharing our experience?
I don't know what to tell you other than I just didn't get a quest for some reason yesterday and had open slots. I did get one this morning.
I did not get a daily quest today either
maybe a 3 mana 2/4 or 2/5 to give opp time to answer, but honestly if they print another OP highlander card/ set it's just going to get worse. Maybe it's time all classes received answers like beneath the grounds.
Exciting as a mage player!
Im holding off crafting some stuff til the patch lol. The game overall feels really balanced, hope there aren't too many nerfs.
Did anyone copy that by any chance, the decks changed before I got a chance but I enjoyed it
This should be relevant for any new players, note that there is likely to be a balance patch in mid Nov.
Just started the game this weekend...it's promising, really enjoying it a lot....it's got my attention for sure.
I've been playing since beta, only have about 170 hunter wins, 300 warrior, close with priest and rogue to 500 450's I think, other are golden only 1k is paladin, that was my early goto class.
HS is pretty well established now. MTG dropped the ball big time right in to Blizz lap. LoR? might take some marketshare from HS, but now the big issue is "new player experience"
Mostly it's a competition between new players IMO
interesting, might give it a shout
It's not great, OTK killer mainly (think Malygos)
Both are very mediocre
Dark Pharaoh is the better of the 2, but it's tempo loss on curve and strategically isn't great for zoo or control, you don't generally want to hang onto lackeys. On the other hand, 1 mana 4/4's with an effect arent bad.
Supreme Arc just doesn't matter in most (any??) games
I packed an Octosari and it's very decent refill for aggro decks not sure why you would struggle much with card draw in a highlander build...Simiat is very good probably your safest craft. Darius is not great low level craft priority unless you only play warrior
It was bad "back in the day" and even worse now regretfully...they could update it to cards cost "2 less" to play and it still wouldn't be playable because deckbuilding requires synergies, end of.
Even if you enjoy playing pure meme decks, presumably you throw synergy in your deckbuilding.
