    700 would be really cheap if it wasn't that 100g limit I think I would have gotten 250g per day. To not speak of the streamers who sit on 10k gold already.

    It's hard to imagine not having time for games, I have never had that issue :p

    WTF do you do all day? Can I get in on that action?! : D

    Again, I see this game as a casual game. I have like 1 friend who still plays the game semi-regularly. Everyone else quit because it was too hard to get cards. This is even less casual.

    Play games, since I don't got school. What do you mean? :p (never heard that phrase before)

    I'd say hearthstone is fairly casual though, you can reach rank 10 with a super cheap zoo deck. Naxx is the first experience that a player can miss because of inaccessibility BUT I think it's a very good thing. I beg to god that they don't make the same mistake with hearhstone as with WoW. EVERYONE MUST HAVE ACCESS TO EVERYTHING WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING!

    If you are ranking up the ladder (which many many people do) you will be getting easy 100g a day (even with only 40g quest) so in my opinion for majority of people the price ranges between cheap and acceptable.
    Besides many people I imagine already have that 2800 gold as everybody expected 1000g/wing at least so started farming beforehand.

    Moreover the Naxx cards don't really seem that good at all so I don't believe anybody will "have to" buy anything.
    Noobs who will join after better just buy packs instead.

    So most people on the ladder play 5+ hours a day? Realistically, 100g would be like 8 hours.

    I have played 6 hours of hearthstone per day the last week or so. But normally I play like.. max 2.

    You can pull out 5 min wins with murloc warlock in casual games for farming. Either win or lose in 5 min, else concede. If you do that, 5 hours for 100g. If you divide it by two, you play 2.5 hours for 50 gold + 40 gold for quest. That's very close to a naxx wing.

    My wife played the last 3 days and has 620g, she plays not even an hour.
    Not sure if that says anything, but she just does the daily quests.

    Cool card! It could be fun to combo with millhouse, but I have a feeling that Blizz will just make millhouse overwrite the effect. But who knows?

    Anyway, I'm happy to hear they have decided on a release date. I hope the wings are sufficiently challenging.

    According to a tweet by Ben Brode, Millhouse and then Loatheb = 5 mana-cost spells. Loatheb then Millhouse = 0 mana-cost. So it is possible to get them to combo. It might not be the best idea against a mage, but it works well for almost everyone else. :p

    They posted all cards already.
    They are horribly underwhelming to be perfectly honest. The amount of taunters is pretty silly, I'm assuming Blizz somehow thinks that making gimmicky taunters is somehow a solution to Leeroy.
    The legendaries I think are so laughably bad, with only Kel'Thuzad being somewhat passable IMO.
    Loatheb is useless, Maexxna is .. just a worse boulderfist ogre, Feugen and Stalagg are the ultimate gimmickness of the level of inner fire + divine spirit.

    The one card that I think is really really good, is Zombie Chow in a priest deck. I think this is better for a priest than the actual priest card, and I think this is the card the priest needed.

    Are you kidding me? Pretty much all of those cards look incredible. Kel'thuzad looks broken. :eek:

    It'll be interesting to see what people do. It's hard to simply call cards trash without seeing what combos people can come up with. Nothing looks strong, true, but we are generally thinking of what would go with the current meta.

    Also I hope Blizzard starts making balance changes more. This is what the game needs the most; an ever changing meta.

    Didn't watch it, but I like and respect Kripps opinions when it comes to video games.

    From the new cards I think only the Deathlord is broken.
    The stats for cost ratio is completely bonkers and the deathrattle is just amazing, I assume designers at Derpzzard thought it would be a disadvantage but in practice it will pull and neutralize all battlecry/situational cards in the opponent's deck.

    It's really strong against agro, but pretty bad for a 3 drop against other decks. Even if it gets rid of a battlecry, it's still a 0 mana minion for your opponent.

    There are lots of good cards imo.
    -Loatheb will be amazing, and likely in a lot of decks. Kripp called it possibly the best card in hearthstone now. I disagree, but it's still good.
    -Mad scientist is pretty awesome, mostly for mages.
    -Sludge Belcher will almost single handedly counter rush decks.
    -Feugen is a sick 5 drop stat wise.
    -Spectral night is boss against control decks
    -Unstable Ghoul is another rush counter that's awesome.
    -Wailing Soul has some really good possibilities. It's got much better stats than other silence minions, and could be used really well in certain decks (especially with ancient watchers).
    -Reincarnate will make of for awesome deathrattle decks with Shaman
    - Anubar Ambusher is super strong for its stats and it's deathrattle can be played around fairly easily.
    - Shade of Naxramus has potential. At the very least it can take AoE away from your opponent for 3 mana or be a 3-3. At best it could win you the game.
    -Poison Seeds is hard to gauge. Could be amazing as a hard board clear, or it could wind up being useless in a match.

    Am I the only one who thinks that Shade is a non-legendary and cheap grull with stealth?

    @Talavaj: I think it is helpful against Zoo. But the deathrattle can ruin the game. I would consider not even playing it against something like control warrior. It is still a very good card though, except maybe against priests. I would personally try using it as a priest. It could be a good inner fire target.

    @Ceday: Shade is strong for buffs, but it is a 3-mana investment. I have a feeling people will have to break stealth prematurely to get board control. But I think it could be really useful for something like miracle rogue, which usually has to pass on turn 3 anyway. :p
