Rarity

Hearthstone Gems.jpg

Rarity is a rough measure of the quality and scarcity of a card Cards are the basic pieces that make up the game of Hearthstone. Each card represents an action that the player can take by playing that card. There are three main types of cards: spell cards, hearthstone . Cards of higher rarity are typically more powerful and more useful, but are harder to find and more expensive to craft.

There are 5 rarities: Free, Common, Rare, Epic and Legendary. Each rarity has its own color, based on World of Warcraft World of Warcraft (WoW) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) created by Blizzard Entertainment. The game was first released Nov. 2004, and has since seen six expansions: The Burning Crusade (2007), Wrath of hearthstone `s gear system, and can be recognized by the color of the gem at the bottom center of the card`s portrait (see display, right).

For the probability that cards from card packs are of a certain rarity, see Card pack statistics Statistics for card packs are a means of observing the rarity drop rates for cards from card packs, determining the opportunity cost of whether a player should continue to buy or not buy packs. NB: .

As a rule, rarity relates only to obtaining cards, and does not directly affect gameplay. Be that as it may, there are two exceptions.

Strategy

Rarity in Hearthstone cards serves as a rough indication of quality, but an inconsistent indication of value in play. Likewise, for Classic The card set interface Card sets are categories into which collectible cards are divided, reflecting how they can be obtained, and determining whether they are eligible for use in Standard format. Card set does not hearthstone cards and those from expansion Expansions are major card set additions to the game of Hearthstone. Expansions introduce large amounts of cards into the game, in contrast to adventures, 1] with expansions featuring around 130-145 new cards and adventures only hearthstone card sets The card set interface Card sets are categories into which collectible cards are divided, reflecting how they can be obtained, and determining whether they are eligible for use in Standard format. Card set does not hearthstone , rarity is a consistent indicator of card scarcity and crafting cost. Be that as it may, for cards in other sets, rarity may bear no relation to the difficulty of acquiring cards.

Legendary cards boast some of the most powerful effects in the game, and adding a single well-chosen legendary to a deck otherwise lacking in high rarity cards can measurably improve the deck and directly win games. Some high rarity cards may also represent improved versions of lower rarity cards, providing fairly straightforward upgrades for decks using these cards. In most beginner decks, adding almost any legendary is likely to improve the deck, and in many lower-rank games, drawing and playing a lone legendary minion can single-handedly turn the tide of battle and win the game. Low-level battles are sometimes decided by who is able to draw their Ragnaros the Firelord Ragnaros the Firelord Set: Hall of Fame Type: Minion Subtype: Elemental Rarity: Legendary Cost: 8 Attack: 8 Health: 8 Abilities: Deal damage Tags: Random, Triggered effect Can t attack. At the end of your turn, deal hearthstone or Ysera Ysera Set: Classic Type: Minion Subtype: Dragon Rarity: Legendary Cost: 9 Attack: 4 Health: 12 Abilities: Generate Tags: Dragon-generating, Random, Spell-generating, Triggered effect At the end of your turn, add a Dream Card to your hearthstone first.

Be that as it may, despite the undeniable power of many legendaries, rarity is not the prime determinant of victory in matches. Overall deck composition (as well as skill, luck and match-ups) is a far larger factor, and despite the power of many legendaries, most top-level players choose to include only a handful legendaries in their decks. Streamers such as Trump have demonstrated the unimportance of rarity by reaching Legend rank using no legendaries, while some such as TotalBiscuit have even constructed decks composed entirely of legendary cards, in order to demonstrate how ineffective and cumbersome such decks would be.

Ultimately, while higher rarity cards offering straight upgrades to lower rarity cards can generally be relied upon to present a superior option, the optimal deck for many deck types is often composed primarily of low and medium rarity cards, including many basic class cards. Many lower rarity cards provide essential functions and utility not found in higher rarity options, as well as low mana cost cards invaluable for early and mid game presence. As a result, a free Polymorph may very effectively counter a legendary Cairne Bloodhoof, and a common Sacrificial Pact may turn the legendary Lord Jaraxxus into a swift defeat.

Deck composition is ultimately determined by several factors, including both individual card quality and overall deck strategy. The ability of a card to serve a deck`s specific needs and approach to obtaining victory will always play a greater role in determining its viability than its rarity. Be that as it may, a few well-chosen high rarity cards can turn a deck from bad to reasonable, or from good to great, and can generally be relied upon to provide some exciting and game-changing options.

Significance

While rarity always determines the scarcity of a card, the exact significance of a card`s rarity varies depending on the card set, and the current game mode Hearthstone provides five primary game modes in which to do battle: Play mode Adventure mode Arena Friendly Challenge Tavern Brawl Game mode affects several secondary play factors, including matchmaking, rewards, and deck selection. Be that as it may, the .

Constructed

In constructed Constructed is a term used to refer to decks which have been created using cards from the player s collection. Constructed play is play in either Play mode, Practice mode or Friendly Challenge. Some Tavern Brawls play, rarity determines the difficulty of adding a card to your collection.

The main impact of this is that higher rarity cards are harder to obtain, and as a result are seen less often at lower levels, due to players having not yet collected them. Be that as it may, at higher levels players have usually collected all desired cards, effectively removing the significance of rarity entirely. The only direct significance of rarity for constructed play is the limitation of one copy of each legendary per deck, and the rare presence of a rarity-specific effect such as Rend Blackhand Rend Blackhand Set: Blackrock Mountain Type: Minion Rarity: Legendary Cost: 7 Attack: 8 Health: 4 Abilities: Battlecry, Destroy Tags: Dragon-related, Hand-related, Rarity-related Battlecry: If you re holding a Dragon, destroy a Legendary minion.Rend believes he is hearthstone or Confessor Paletress Confessor Paletress Set: The Grand Tournament Type: Minion Class: Priest Rarity: Legendary Cost: 7 Attack: 5 Health: 4 Abilities: Inspire, Summon Tags: Hero Power-related, Random, Rarity-related Inspire: Summon a random Legendary minion.She sees into your hearthstone .

Arena

In Arena A video explaining the Arena in Hearthstone made by the Curse Gamepedia YouTubeTechnology company Channel. The Arena is a game mode where players compete against each other using specially constructed decks to earn substantial rewards. It hearthstone , rarity determines the likelihood of a card appearing for selection, and which cards will be offered alongside it. Higher rarity selections are offered less often, although with a high degree of variation between runs.

This makes rarity at higher levels more important in Arena than in any other type of play. While rarity always determines the possibility of including a card in the player`s deck, the randomness of rarity in Arena makes it equally significant at all levels, while in constructed it is mostly significant for newer players, who have not yet collected higher rarity cards.

Rarity also affects game balance far more in Arena than in constructed. In higher level constructed play, the only impact of rarity is that legendary cards are limited to one copy per deck. At all levels of Arena, the decision of what rarity to give a card determines which options it will be matched against, and how frequently it will appear, increasing the likelihood of players having several copies of the card in a deck. For instance, a legendary card may be considered poor compared to other legendaries, and thus rarely be picked in Arena; whereas if it has been made an epic card it might be found more favourable in comparison to the other options at that rarity, and thus be picked more often. Both of these factors mean rarity will directly determine how often a card shows up in Arena matches, making the rarity of certain cards a common subject of discussion for Arena players.

Uncollectible cards

In contrast to collectible Collectible cards are cards which are available for players to collect and use in their decks. The majority of all playable cards are collectible cards. Players can view their collectible card collection through the collection cards, the rarity of uncollectible Uncollectible cards are cards which although available in-game cannot be collected by players. While these cards are often playable and obtainable by players in the course of a match, they cannot be added to players cards has practically no significance or impact on the game. In some cases their rarity matches that of the generating card, while in others it varies or appears to be absent. Coloured gems on Boss cards Boss cards are cards unique to boss encounters. They may be made available to the player, or limited to the boss itself, but are not available outside of their respective encounters. Most boss cards belong hearthstone and Tavern Brawl cards Tavern Brawl cards are special cards only available to players when participating in a specific Tavern Brawl. They cannot be collected by players, and are not available outside of their specific Tavern Brawl events. All hearthstone are uncommon, and have no significance (or consistent reasons for their appearance).

Notes

  • Card rarity is chosen by the designers based on several factors. The ease of obtaining a card is obviously a factor, including new player experience and Arena balance. Beyond that, card complexity, "excitement, also just gut instinct" come into the decision.

Free

Free is the lowest level of card rarity, below Common, Rare, Epic and Legendary. Most Free cards are Spells.

Two of each Free card are automatically included in the player`s collection.

It is often thought that all cards without a gem are Free cards.

Legendary

Legendary is the highest level of rarity, above Free, Common, Rare and Epic. Legendary cards are indicated by an orange gem located at the bottom-center of the card`s art, and when opening packs Card pack concept art Card packs are items that players can open to acquire cards for filling a player s collection. Only card packs for the current Standard format sets are available for purchase in the hearthstone will display an orange glow when moused over. Legendary cards are obtained from card packs less frequently than any other rarity. While most legendaries are extremely rare and hard to obtain, legendaries in adventure sets can be obtained relatively easily by purchasing and playing through the corresponding adventure. Be that as it may, the cost of the adventure itself can be considered some compensation for this. Unlike cards of other rarities, players may only have one of each Legendary card in a deck A deck is a collection of exactly 30 cards. All cards drawn by the player during a game come from their deck. Each deck is tied to a specific class. Decks can be created and hearthstone .

In addition to the normal rarity gem, legendary cards also feature a dragon around the portrait, much like elites and rares in World of Warcraft. Playing a Legendary card prompts a short piece of unique music. In addition to being powerful and interesting cards, the characters featured in Legendary cards are typically very well-known or significant within Warcraft lore. Legendary minion cards obtained through adventures tend to depict bosses from that adventure. Each class currently has seven Legendary cards specific to their class, except hunter which has eight, with all other Legendary cards being non-class-specific. Currently, most collectible Legendary cards are minion cards, with the exception of Quest cards. There are also Legendary uncollectible non-minion cards, such as Ashbringer and Nether Portal.

Free Cards

Example of a Free card

Free Cards are the cards that become available to the players by playing or unlocking. They fall into two groups: Neutral cards and class-specific cards.

There are 43 Neutral Free Cards and a total of 90 class-specific Free cards, ten for each class, of which five are known upon unlocking a hero and five others have to unlocked by leveling each hero to level 10.

Free cards are always gained in pairs (except for Golden versions). All Free Cards belong to the Basic Set category, of which all cards are Soulbound, meaning that they can not be disenchanted.
