I leveled the Warlock to 20 and was surprised at how beneficial the draw a card at the sacrifice of health was.  Seems to be a pretty interesting class.

I just started playing this on my iPad Air last week and am truly loving the game. Although, sometimes I feel like winning has more to do with how good your cards are and luck of the draw more than strategy. But that's probably a common newbie perspective.

Does your hero's level decrease over time? I got my priest to level 10, which didn't take that long. I haven't played in a couple days, should I expect him to have dipped a little?

Hero level never decreases. Only rank increases and decreases (but not below level 20 each season if you pass it) when you play ranked mode.

I agree with Wonderpug, this game is definitely not pay to win. 

When it comes to spending your hard earned gold, I recommend playing in the Arena.  You're guaranteed a pack, get great experience with different classes and cards, and will likely get some dust or something else at least.   

Additionally, I'm all for playing whatever class you enjoy the most, but thought you would like to know that the Priest is currently at the bottom when it comes to winning percentage in constructed ranked games.  Plenty have played Priest all the way to Legend, but since you're new I thought you would like to know you're playing the weakest class. 


In that case I should continue playing the Priest. If Hearthstone is anything like WoW, the weakest class gets a boost at some point and becomes overpowered for a while smile

Cool looks like bundle for remaining 4 (provided you take advantage of free wing during the month it's given) is only $20.  Less if you use gold to buy some others.

Now do I spend money on it or try to save gold? I seem to be so far behind everyone on legendary and rare cards, I am considering dropping money on packs as well.

Has anyone played against a rogue doing the card overflow thing? Where they force you into so getting so many cards that you start losing them? Most tedious match I have ever played. Took forever and it just wasn't fun. Every turn was just tying to lay down as many cards as I could to clear my hand out, and I still lost. Legitimate strategy, but completely took the fun out of the match.

I've been saving up gold for it, but doing the math it seems you get a lot more gold/$ equivalent by spending real dollars on this expansion compared to what your dollars get you in the card store.  I think I'll probably spend the $20.

The first wing is free and I have enough gold saved up for the second.  I'll like just buy the others.  I can't wait for it.

I have played faced that Rogue deck (mill rogue is the name), and agree it's tedious.  There are other mill decks so watch out.  I've been playing Miracle Rogue and its a very strong deck (the most card draw and burst power of any I've played).i

It's out. Beat the first boss easily with my mage deck. smile

Edit: and beat the second one easily. Not sure if I have been lucky or I have a good deck (I have never got above rank 17 with this deck).

Beat the final boss, it was close, got a fireball right when I needed it. Game timed out right away. Can't get back in. Sure I can beat it again, just don't want to.

Edit: I got credit for the win. I got a legendary! My 3rd now (that everyone else is also going to have). icon_confused I really should just invest in $20 of cards.

So maybe on normal level it's pretty easy? Curious as to what others think.

Some of the cards/special powers are pretty brutal. AI seems decent pulling off some combos. Other than it crashing, seems very well done.

Reading Reddit's Hearthstone sub, people are making it sound like the heroic difficulty isn't too bad either if you play the right deck. Of course whenever I read anything about Hearthstone online I feel like I am the only one who doesn't study the game and know all the ins and outs. I don't really know what any of the decks are.

The heroic bosses have 45 hp and their specials are crazy uber.  It seems gimmicky to me.

I haven't played a whole lot of Hearthstone but I was able to beat the first boss with my crappy mage deck (after losing with my crappy priest deck), and then surprisingly I beat the 2nd and 3rd boss with my crappy priest deck (after losing with my crappy mage deck) lol.  All in all I really do like the idea behind this expansion, kind of a nice twist on the regular gameplay.

I guess my complaint about Naxx is that I have no urge to play it again. I still have the heroic levels, but I don't really want to deal with the frustration. Unless there are Naxx quests, I can't see going back.

The heroic bosses are pretty much puzzles.  I had to build three very gimmicky decks to beat them.  There is no reward for doing so so unless you just want the challenge I wouldn’t bother.

Yeah gotta beat them all in Heroic.  You can see the card back on the decks of the heroic bosses.

This is kind of cool: decks constructed only out of the free cards in the game to beat Heroic.  I haven't tried any of them yet but thought it was interesting:

I hit a new personal best tonight and made it to rank 11!  The match to get there was one of the best matches I've ever had.  They guy I beat was playing priest and we both immediately sent each other invites when it was over.  It was so back and forth it was nuts.  If he had won he'd have made it to 11 too!   Anyway, still loving this game and for me it's probably my GOTY so far, with Infamous as a very close second. 

I had never played anything like this before and to like this as much as I do is worthy of at least a mid-year GOTY.0

I haven't paid any attention to the news regarding the single player campaign, and the end product seems a little underwhelming. I expected some type of storyline or maps, more artwork, more animations, etc. instead it's seems to be a line of matches just stringed together.

still fun, but I expected more from blizzard, especially for $20.

Wing 2 gets a bit harder. Had to do the final boss and the Hunter challenge twice. Class challenges are easily the most fun for me, having to figure out how to play a deck and not knowing what you even have.

Looks like they are having trouble with wing 2 purchases.  I  just tried and it won't let me purchase the wing.  There's also a warning on the battle.net launcher saying they are aware of issues, etc.

I was able to beat the first two guys on Plague last night but the third one kind of kicked my ass.  He starts with 75 HP even on Normal, what gives?  I guess you're supposed to take advantage of those weird things that give you +8 to attack if you kill them?
