Missharu's Guide to Hearthstone

Updated on June 30, 2016

Getting Started:

Hearthstone is a free to play online strategy card game based upon Blizzard's World of Warcraft.

Hearthstone is actually very easy! Basically you just choose a class to play, in which you'll play a tutorial for your first few games and this will introduce you to new aspects of the game play as you progress.

Once your in your very first game (tutorial) you are given the opportunity to replace any or all Cards in your starting hand, and then the game begins!!

The rule of the game is to try and reduce the health of your opponents hero to zero before they can to your hero. You will play cards each turn based on the amount of mana you have. . You begin with 1 mana on your first turn and gain an additional mana crystal per turn. The maximum number of mana is 10.

Building your deck

Once you have played your tutorial games you will be able to add any deck under the class hero's as follows:








Warlock &


Basic cards are obtained by leveling up their associated classes.

Expert cards come in packs of five and must be purchased either with gold or real money. Hearthstone only offers one new daily quest each day, and you can only have up to 3 quests going at once. So getting gold is a fairly slow process especially when you consider that one pack of cards costs 100 gold and the entrance fee for admittance into the arena is 150 gold.

Bulding a good deck will consist of having minion cards offensive and defensive as well as a variety of spells. There is also an option to the right hand side, "Suggest a Card" button to help guide your choices. Which Is great for beginners who have no understanding of World of Warcarft or Hearthstone.

If you click on your hero picture to the right top hand side you will also be able to see the number of cards of each cost you currently have in your deck

It's important to have cards of both high and low costs in your deck.

      Hmm, I need to try this! Blizz has been tempting me with all sorts of freebies and what-have-you, but I've not even checked out the system.

      This is like Yugioh and Warcraft in one. Hearthstone sounds like a fun strategy game. Great hub, Amber!
