    On a side note: I just faced a priest in arena who played Velen TWICE. That is probably the absolute rarest thing I've ever seen. It is rare enough to get two legendary options in the same arena choosing (it happened to me once), but to get two of the same kind? Thankfully I won, otherwise I would've probably posted in Table Flip Moments.

    EDIT: Hmm.. This guy is also competing for rarest arena combo yet.

    It's Cairne Bloodhoof, King Krush, Young Priestess, Ancient Brewmaster, and Ice Lance.

    I've heard of people picking double Ragnaros, but Velen seems pretty unlikely especially since it's a class card. I have seen Velen -> Faceless + 2x Mind Blast though.

    Welp, after over half a year of my statistics-defying booster packs I finally got one with my first legendary.. (and a rare and an epic) which ended up being .. Onyxia.
    Could've been worse I guess. Still I would probably prefer Cenarius, Hogger or Illidan for my token druid deck or Malygos for my spell mage.
    But hey .. I guess she can work OK in my token druid deck as well if not I'll DE her and grab one of the ones I mentioned.
    Lol, though it is depressing my first pack legendary is actually my third legendary..

    I sorta had a Tonex moment! I had just played a looong arena session as a rogue and I got 12-1 so they gave me two packs.

    In the first one, I got Ysera. (I didn't screenshot it) In the second, I got Golden Harrison Jones. The dwarf literally sounded like he was going to have a heart attack. "WHHOOOOOAA GOLLLLDDDDENNN LEGENDAAARY". As cheesy as the dwarf is, I love his reactions.

    The most shocking fact is that you got 12 wins with a rogue in the arena. Should've taken screen of the deck :p.
    But sweet, though I would expect 12 win decks to have more rare cards than just two, but hey I always got 1 rare deck out of 12 win key so I'm really skeptic about the claims of them having any higher drop rate.

    Yeah. I'm not quite sure whether they have a higher drop rate. It'd be cool if they did. But I never really thought about it. :p

    Rogues are actually one of my favorite arena classes. This is my second time getting 12 wins with a rogue (the other time I went 12-2), and the only other class I got 12 wins with was a warrior. Although, I honestly didn't think this deck would go 12-1. I lost in the 2nd round to mage, and I lost badly. So I was at 1-1 thinking it would be a pretty awful run. But tbh, I played that game really stupidly. :p Here is my deck:
    Decklist
    • Backstab
    • Conceal
    • Shieldbearer
    • Young Priestess
    • Betrayal
    • Eviscerate x 2
    • Sap
    • Bluegill Warrior
    • Defias Ringleader
    • Loot Hoarder
    • Patient Assassin
    • Youthful Brewmaster
    • Headcrack (lol)
    • Demolisher
    • Harvest Golem
    • Questing Adventurer
    • Raging Worgen
    • Shattered Sun Cleric
    • Chillwind Yeti
    • Cult Master
    • Dark Iron Dwarf
    • Sen'jin Shieldmasta
    • Assassinate
    • Azure Drake
    • Darkscale Healer
    • Spiteful Smith
    • Stampeding Kodo
    • Argent Commander


    It is a pretty weird deck. Mostly just a lot of minions, so I would usually overwhelm my opponent (although, it isn't quite a 'zoo' because I had mostly mid-range units). Betrayal is great as a "turn the tables" card so I could get an advantage, and Cult Master + Loot Hoarder handled drawing cards. Since I had so many minions, I could usually get pretty good value of cult master, and I would even conceal him to keep him alive. But the true MVP was probably Questing Adventurer. I got a questing + conceal combo a few times, so that let me develop him enough to deal damage. And headcrack actually did a finisher for me in one game. It is really a situational card, but I got surprisingly good value from it (I still probably won't choose it again unless I have no other option, lol.). But my deck doesn't have anything particularly strong. I usually would just try to get an early card advantage or board control, and then the non-stop flow of minions would do the rest.

    And in case you're curious, my first rogue 12-2 arena deck was this (which IMO, feels a little stronger):
    Deck
    • Backstab
    • Shadowstep
    • Cold Blood
    • Deadly Poison
    • Abusive Sergeant
    • Betrayal
    • Blade Flurry
    • Eviscerate
    • Sap
    • Acidic Swamp Ooze
    • Amani Berserker
    • Defias Ringleader x 2
    • Mad Bomber
    • Arcane Golem
    • Flesheating Ghoul
    • Ironfur Grizzly
    • Raging Worgen
    • Scarlet Crusader
    • SI:7 Agent
    • Chillwind Yeti
    • Dark Iron Dwarf
    • Gnomish Inventor
    • Sen'jin Shieldmasta
    • Assassin's Blade
    • Assassinate
    • Faceless Manipulator
    • Silver Hand Knight
    • Frost Elemental
    • War Golem


    It was a lot more balanced and it had potential for a lot of aggressiveness.

    Lol, that is an unusual combination of a lot of random cards but yeah the second one looks nicer overall.
    I usually have the best luck with Paladin/Mage/Druid and I always aim to get all the well-tried basics/commons I have in constructed eg. Chillwind, Harvest, Taz Dingo, Dire Wolf, Faerie, Ooze, Grizzly, Shattered Sun Cleric or the good rares if they pop up like Azure Drake, Juggler, DoA etc and then the useful class specific cards, everything else I pretty much ignore.
    Though my most liked class in the arena is probably Paladin, Divine Favor/BoM/BoW/Consecration and all of his minions are just great in the arena.
    I notice a lot of people take gimmicky "cool" cards that just don't work in a random draft at all, maybe because they don't have them in constructed or w/e.

    Yeah. That is why I was so surprised that it actually worked. But trust me, I had a lot of weird options. I wouldn't normally go for headcrack or demolisher, but the other options were just bad (and those two cards somehow managed to get great value!)

    Yep. Usually it is good to cover boundaries. I'll always try to grab an ooze or two if I can, get the necessary AoE (e.g. consecrate), and the "necessary" cards, maybe a silence or two if it comes up. But otherwise, there are staples that are always great to pick-up e.g. harvest golem, juggler, azure drake, etc. (pretty much the ones you mentioned). When I first started to run arena, I only chose the cool cards. That's why I did so awfully. I tried to make specific decks, e.g. casters, pure rush, spell-decks (hell, I even tried to get a lucky murloc combo once). They work to an extent, but they fall easily. It is usually better to get a balanced deck. And you pretty much HAVE to have some form of card draw. The second rogue deck managed without card draw because of the control, but it caused a ton of problems and several close matches. My latest card deck usually left me ahead in cards. So many of the matches ended with my opponent relying on top decking while I had a bunch of minions on the board.

    EDIT: Just got 11 wins (lost my last match ;-;) as rogue again and got lorewalker cho (a.k.a. 400 dust). Maybe the upper level of wins do indeed give a higher chance of getting a legendary. But idk. Could be coincidental.

  15. My ass is so lucky, the galaxy spins around it.

    Despise the many boosters where I got a legendary, this is the booster that Blizzard gave me two.

    I hope you all get cancer. Just joking :p
    I have got my second Legendary (+ 4 commons, yee) in what, 8 months ? It ended up being Hogger.
    Then I got my fifth~sixth or so Mountain giant, fourth Doomhammer. (with three consecutively in the week right after I crafted one for my shaman)
    Now I crafted 2x Ancient of Lore so I can't wait for my five duplicates !

    Yes, luck just loves me.

    The only time I bought packs (7 of them), half of them had legendaries, though two were copies. Makes me think the game knows when you p2w.
