New Hearthstone card packs give you more Legendaries for your buck


If you’re an avid Hearthstone player who likes to tear into a new pack every now and then, you’re about to get a whole lot more for your money, namely in the form of Legendary cards.

If you’re new to Hearthstone, give these beginner decks a try.

Beginning with the release of the next Hearthstone expansion and going forward, every time you get a Legendary card from a new pack, it will be a card from the same set you don’t already have. This should cut down on the duplicate rate significantly.

In fact, once you’ve had the golden or non-golden version before, you won’t get another. You’ll also get only the number of copies of the same card you can actually use in a single deck.

And if you don’t actually get many Legendary cards, that’s about to change, too. Going forward you’ll be guaranteed to receive a Legendary card within the first ten packs you open of a new set.

There’s also a promotion running in the next few days with the Journey to Un’Goro card pack bundles in which you get additional cards per bundle. It’s all detailed on the official Hearthstone blog. Looks like now’s a great time to dig into Hearthstone if you’ve been looking to start.
