    I think it's still pretty gimmicky, as even though it's pretty good for tempo, there are so many terrible cards you can draw, such as parrots, crabs, chickens, etc.

    Did anybody see the leaked information on the expansion ? I heard screencaps and information on the missions was posted on hearthhead and the official forums but it was removed by the moderators immediately.

    :( I didn't get to see anything.

    Appears Blizzard gave up on deleting the leaked content.
    Thoughts ?

    I think that Kel'Thuzad is pretty strong, and he is a 6/8 so I assume everybody and their mother who plays F2P will run one.
    I can see him in every Handlock and Ramp Druid ever hiding behind taunts.

    Think it'll be a "win more" card, since you already have to have some board control to make it useful. What I'm really interested in is some of the adventure bosses, like when you vs Rivendare, Faceless a Horseman + Master of Disguise = instant win? Or 20 taunts and some card draw vs Patchwerk?

    WoooOOooOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

    Wait... pricing? It's going to cost money? They haven't stolen enough money from me from my time with WoW and buying Heathstone decks? C'mon!

    There is a way to buy entry with real $$ and an ingame gold method. Personally, I'm trying to reserve ~1000 on US and EU to start off with (I already have 1k on US stocked, but EU somewhere around 800 since I ran a few unsuccessful arenas). The first stages should be pretty cheap. There were some leaked prices somewhere, but I think they are still making lots of changes, bug fixes, etc. I wouldn't take those leaked prices to heart.

    Well, that is very cheap in my opinion. Good though !
    I will still wait to find out what cards you get, from what I understand you don't need to beat the first four in order, so I'll probably just skip some if the cards are bad.

    I'll just buy all of it for cash tbh. Easier and it's not very expensive.

    It's expensive to me.

    It's not the same amount of effort as a normal game to make. All they have to do is come up with ideas, art, and balance. To charge me that much for an expansion to a F2P game is lame. They make money off of in-game purchases. WTF Blizzard?

    Also I'm a cheap bastard. I rarely buy games at full price these days ($5 games on steam ftw), and the odds of this ever going on sale is so low.

    Oh well, I might get it anyways. Damn Blizzard and their money grubbing corporation.

    Oh, and 700 gold is pretty much completely out of range for casual players.

    Well, 700 gold is not half bad, especially considering you get a decent amount of gold just for completing a wing.

    If you do your dailies, it is pretty easy to rack up gold quickly, especially if you stay away from arena. Arena is like a strip club casino. It is possible to make a profit, but usually you're in for a loss. You don't feel that bad about it though, since it is usually worth it due to the rewards.

    It takes time though. I've played on and off for the past month or so, but I completed dailies once in a while, and that was enough to rack up some nice gold.

    Damn I just hope I get to Legend before the new cards screw up the meta. In terms of gold, purge is prolly right. As long as you don't binge, 700 is not too much, but it is a bit of a stretch getting 2800 for all 4 wings in only 4-5 weeks.

    techincally it's free though. You get 100g per day from wins. + 40g per day for quests. That 980 per week at least. And since it's one wing per week... you do the logic.

    I kinda feel he other way around I want the new cards to create new decks and fuck the meta. The meta is really boring right now. Because of the current meta I can only play warlock if I want to be rank 5+ I don't got cards for force roar and I sold all warrior cards a while ago. Sold my miracle deck too.

    That's basically what went through my mind, but I felt that 30 wins per day might be a bit much for more casual players, so may not be able to catch up. I agree that the meta is getting a little bland, but recently I've seen some interesting decks at 6-1, like Ancestral Healing/Spirit, and even Kolento became #1 NA with a midrange Paladin deck, so there's change going on even without Nax.

    even if one person succeed with a deck, that doesn't make it viable. (@wow) Vanguards made it to top 1 with ret pala in a patch that they were considered useless. However he was the only one who managed to play with it on high rank.

    edit: maybe I am too negative though.

    I think if someone gets it to high rank, it definitely is viable, but he question really is whether other people will play the deck in the way so that they also get to high rank.

    100g per day from wins?! Am I doing something wrong? It's 10g from 3 wins, so that's 30 wins. At best that's 5 hours of playing. I play like 3 games a day... lol.

    I figure from daily's it would take 14 days minus whatever gold you get from arena or the bonus 10g from 3 wins. While that may not seem awful, you are not getting cards during that whole time.

    I suppose it depends what the rewards are like for the wings. If you get a decent amount of cards and or gold, then fine.
