I'm getting tired of this quests not showing up correctly bullshit. Just give me my daily quest already Blizzard!
https://us.battle.net/forums/en/hearthstone/topic/20760816674

Greetings,

Thanks for helping to make the launch of Kobolds & Catacombs legendary! Millions of players joined us to explore the vast kobold dungeons, and we hope all your adventures into the depths have been incredibly fun.

After launch, we discovered something not-so-fun: an issue that delayed some players from receiving new daily quests after logging in, largely due to the unexpected impact that so many Dungeon Runs had on our services. We immediately set to work investigating the issue and implemented hotfixes to resolve it. We’re still working on it, but at this point the delay is significantly reduced, and in most cases players will now see their daily quests immediately upon log in.

Due to the nature of the issue, some players may still experience a delay between 10-30 minute after logging in to get their daily quest. Here are some steps you can take to prompt the quest log to update if you are not already seeing new quests upon login.


  • • Check your quest log 10-30 minutes after logging in for the first time after quests reset. You need not remain logged in for that time.



  • • Manually refresh the quest log by pushing the Quest Log button.



  • • Play games in Play Mode or Arena (Note that Dungeon Run will not cause the quest log to update).



  • • Note: If you happen to complete your quest without seeing the quest log update, you’ll still be properly rewarded.


We’re currently working on short-term solutions that should soon make these additional steps unnecessary, and we plan on implementing better long-term solutions in the new year.

We understand how important daily quests are to the experience of Hearthstone, and we’re sorry for any confusion or frustration affected players might have experienced. As a celebration of Kobolds and Catacombs and a thank you to affected players for being patient while we worked to fix this issue, we’re sending all Blizzard players three Kobolds & Catacombs card packs, for free, on us!

Your free card packs will arrive via Blizzard Battle.net gifting in early January. To redeem on mobile, just log into Blizzard Battle.net via your favorite browser. If you’re on PC, you can click the gift icon on the upper right next to your Battletag. If your packs don’t appear in-game after you claim them, please try restarting Hearthstone.

Thanks for joining us in the tavern, and we wish you warmth and joy for the holidays!

I've been making very slow progress on my latest mage arena run. That earlier screenshot of a match going to fatigue was game 2 of the run. Games 3 and 4 were just as close, though they didn't go to fatigue. I won both, but I have a hard time letting go of the stress. Finally played game 5 today, and beat my opponent pretty soundly. Silencing his Voidlord when I was already ahead (due to polymorphing a Doomguard that went face) really made the game an easy win. Well, that and my opponent having a slow start, letting me Shifting Scroll -> Cabalist Tome -> Cabalist Tome.

I like arena better when games don't get into edge-of-my-seat topdeck wins until after game 5 or so. And when they start hard and then switch to easy, I just get confused.

Kept losing the brawl, since this week's brawl started out mostly being v. Priest but then ended up being an endless run of Hunter/Shaman/Hunter/Hunter/Shaman/Hunter/Shaman opponents.
With only 19hrs left, I finally just went and spent enough of my dust hoard to craft a second Evolve and played Shaman. First game (v. Hunter), lost. Second game (v. Hunter), won with a Bloodlust after the second wave of gifts dropped. Got my 3 packs.

Totally worth it. #2 and #3 were the usual 4 common + 1 rare, but my first one?

...yes, please!

My wife let me hook up Twitch to her Amazon (the one with Prime), so I got the golden pack. I don't know if this was the guarantee for everyone, but I got two commons, a rare, an epic, and a legendary, so that was cool.

I was going through a dungeon run with Mage, and I came across Gutmook after adding three more spells to my already spell heavy deck. I thought I was screwed. But then this happened:

That's all from one ragnaros, and Gutmook killed one himself. I don't have the double deathrattle bonus. My wand of wonder pulled Molten Reflection, Molten Reflection and Carnivorous Cube (that's a different cube on the board). I stalled until I could play Rag, then eat it, then copy the cube twice. I didn't think it would work out so well, but I survived long enough to start killing off the cubes and spawning Rags.

Now my next fight is Togwaggle, and I'm to tired to keep going at the moment.

Hunter needs a Stinging Trap. When your hero is attacked, give your minions poisonous.

Bees in the trap, b-bees in the trap.

Glad I made time to win my brawl battle on Sat before it went away.
No, my Classic pack was nothing special to speak about, but I completed a quest and got enough to buy a single Gadgetstan pack...

Thanks, Ben!

I miss Blingtron, and the days when my Mech Hunter deck worked (up into the low teens, at least). Honestly, that deck was the most fun I've had in constructed Hearthstone.

TLDW: starting in March, all ranks will be 5 stars, but you only lose 4 ranks from season to season instead of getting bonus stars. You also need to win 5 ranked games to get the card back, instead of being above rank 20.

No, seriously. If you've attacked once with a weapon and then equip another with Windfury, you get another attack. This would allow you to finish off the last durability of one weapon, then attack attack again. It could also be combined with Blade Flurry to make a two card, six mana Flamestrike.

This weapon would either be useless or an instant combo kill. No one would ever use it for an additional swing, they'd make a combo deck to buff the durability and stack +wep damage to swing 25 damage at the face

Are there cards that buff durability for Rogue besides Captain Greenskin? Even assuming that's a better option than a super-buffed kingsblade, you could just give the card some text "breaks on use" to ensure it always and only has 1 durability.
