Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft comes from the maker of the Warcraft franchise itself – Blizzard – and it’s fortunately available for Android and iOS devices alike. In the game, you have to defeat a total of 17 fearsome enemies to unlock 31 Hearthstone cards, with five Legendary cards included, and you also have to overcome nine Class Challenges that will “test your skills” with each of Hearthstone’s classes. If you’re downloading the game now, you’ll be able to play Blackrock Mountain: A Hearthstone Adventure, which is a new single-player adventure, where you get to challenge some tough non-playing characters. Sounds interesting? Well, if it is, we would advise you to check our Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft cheats and strategy guide, if you’re just getting started with the game.
1. Know Your Character Classes And What They Entail
There are nine classes all in all in Hearthstone, namely the Warrior, Shaman, Rogue, Paladin, Hunter, Druid, Warlock, Mage, and Priest, each with their own distinct strengths and weaknesses and hero abilities. We’re not going to go into all-out detail here, but to give you an idea of what we mean, here are some examples. The Warrior, for starters, can access the game’s most powerful offensive cards, and can make use of the Armor Up hero ability. Then you also have the Paladin, which is arguably one of the most versatile classes in terms of abilities and probably the best on defense.
2. Don’t Overlook Passive Skills
You’ll notice that some cards have some passive abilities listed on them, and these skills could really come in handy when you’re throwing down in battle. Some of the more important passive skills include Taunt, Battlecry, Combo, Choose One, Divine Shield, and more. Taunt would prevent rival minions from attacking you if you can use it, so this may be the most essential passive skill in the game.
3. Create A Themed Deck Of Cards
We’ve given you a brief overview of the classes in Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, but since there are so many cards to collect in the game, our next tip would be to create a themed deck of cards that makes full use of everyone’s potential. For instance, if you prefer a defensive approach, you have to adopt minions with taunting and healing powers, while if you’d rather go on an offensive onslaught, you should look at spellcasting and the strength of your minions. And if you’re new to the game, the Mage and Hunter would be indispensable in your deck, as their hero powers are possibly the strongest in Hearthstone.
4. Lord Jaraxxus Is One of The Best Cards
Different tips-and-tricks guides may tell you differently, but anyone whose class is Warlock should, by all means, remember that Lord Jaraxxus is one of the most powerful minions out there. Putting his card into play allows your hero to morph into Jaraxxus, boosting maximum health to 15. Your Inferno ability will allow you to summon a 6/6 Infernal minion at only two mana units per turn. If there’s a catch to Jaraxxus, it’s the fact that your armor will be at zero if he is in play.
5. How To Get Gold And Dust?
There are two units of currency in the game, namely gold and dust. You’ll win the former through Arena prizes, winning online matches, and completing daily quests. The latter can also be earned via the Arena, and by sacrificing unwanted cards.
