As I mentioned in my previous post, I am enjoying this Warcraft game called Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. Hearthstone is a turn-based card game by Blizzard. They say the mechanics is similar to Magic: The Gathering card game (I haven’t played a lot of Magic apart from a short stint during my college days) but this time it incorporates characters, minions and the usual gaming elements from the Warcraft world.
I know I’m may be a late bloomer in the Hearthstone scene (maybe because of my World of Warcraft hiatus) but because this is my blog I can write about any topic here even if its late or crazy so in the tradition of my free six series here is my Free Six Hearthstone Cheats, Info and Tips
Hearthstone Tip 1. Hearthstone is FREE.
Yup! Free for iPad, FREE for PC and FREE for Windows 8. And it will soon hit the Android platform this year too 🙂 .
So try it while its still free. I installed the free PC version around start of the year, but given my wow hiatus my PC time is very much limited then and I did not progress much other than few level ups for Jaina, the mage character. When Blizzard released Hearthstone for iPad app during the holy week vacation, I installed it
It was an Editor’s Choice in the App store and tried to play while I was on vacation.

Hearthstone Tip 2. Just play and try it out with the Innkeeper and unlock all heroes
For beginners, only Jaina will be available so you need to defeat other characters to unlock them. If you are into World of Warcraft, you will see the familiar classes and their strengths. For example, Jaina and mages are heavy DPS characters so this is the usual gameplay for mages. Then if you unlock other characters you will see their strengths very similar to their counterparts in in WoW. For example, Priests are usually a good healers, but can be shadow DPS priests too. Malfurion (Druid) have both healing and DPS capabilities, etc.
I suggest unlocking all heroes first (by battling the Innkeeper in normal mode) so you can get the mechanics of the game. After unlocking all 9 characters that the next Hearthstone moneymaking tip can be continued.
Hearthstone Tip 3. Want some free Hearthstone gold? Play quests!
Just like WoW, Hearthstone got some daily quests too.
This is the main way for get Hearthstone gold without spending real money. Complete quests and explore other heroes match up.
Hearthstone Tip 4. Level up all heroes up to level 10.
All Heroes should be at least Lvl 10 for an extra reward
By leveling heroes to Level 10, you will get all basic cards for that hero. Basic cards are the free card rewards you get when you level up. By leveling _ALL_ heroes to Level 10, you will get some extra Hearthstone gold.
Do this side by side with completing quests and you will soon have a good amount of free Hearthstone gold. You will also have a good feel on which class will suit your gameplay (usually by this time, you will have your favorite class already).
- You can then assemble a good deck using all basic cards and do more PVP with more success.
- Or you can try Arena too (see next tip)
Hearthstone Tip 5. Spending Hearthstone Gold
When you have some substantial Hearthstone gold already, you will be tempted to spend it of course. There are 2 ways: You can buy Expert Card Pack (100 gold) or go to Arena (free Arena pass for 1st timers, 150 gold for succeeding Arena Tickets)
By buying Expert Card Pack at 100 gold you will have better cards. An expert card pack will contain at least 1 good expert card (common, rare, epic, legendary) that will boost you card collection and deck.
In my opinion, spending Hearthstone Gold for Arena Tickets is better than buying expert pack. Yup I know in expert pack its very straightforward 100 gold for 5 cards, and Arena ticket is 150 golds, but prize starts at 1 pack (5 cards) + some dusts. But take note that in Arena the more wins the better the prizes (more dusts, more gold and more cards and decks), so you get random cards, improve your experience with the random card deck, and chance for bigger prizes.
Hearthstone Tip 6. Match Arena Hero with your Daily Hero Quests
What I mean by this Hearthstone cheat is that if you have Paladin or Warrior Dominance quest of Priest or Warlock Dominance Quest:
Then try Arena and check if any of the 4 characters (Paladin, Warrior, Priest or Warlock) are available for your Arena Play. If yes, then roll for it and hit two birds with one stone.
And that’s it. I will try to share some favorite decks I am using so you can play around with the deck too.
