First time I crafted a legendary (Sylvanus), and I'll even get my dust back, yay!

Yeah, basically get two free legendaries if you have them and two free legendaries if you don't.

I'm short on dust right now, but I heard there might be dust/gold/pack/other daily rewards for logging in leading up the expansion release, so hopefully won't even have to disenchant stuff to craft a free Ragnaros.

With a huge dust reserve, one can even craft a golden Sylvania's and/or Ragnaros then disenchant the golden legendary card(s) after getting the 3200 gifted dust refund for an extra 1600 dust surplus.

To top it off, you'll be happy to have Sylvanas and Ragnaros in your collection even if they are only usable in Wild.

A bit of a bummer that they don't plan on having a Naxx/BRM/LoE/ONiK style adventure during the Year of the Mammoth, at least in price model.

Yeah, the lack of an adventure is about money imho. Adventures are pretty easily bought with gold. I bought packs until end of 2016. I've been saving gold since 1/2/17 and have 3700 as of today. This means all current players since the beginning of 17 could easily take an adventure for free.

I've had a similar experience, except I was still buying packs in 2017 here and there, so I only have about 2800 gold.

Achieved Golden Priest. Only one left is Shaman with 123 wins to go. God, I hate playing Shaman, what a grind. At least it's a strong class for the next few days.

Whew, I just achieved Golden Priest and made it to Rank 5 this season with Dragon Priest. Between Netherspite Historian and Drakonid Operative, you don't really need to add any cards above 6 mana. Just discover them when not facing aggro.

Priests and Shamans seem so strong right now that I almost can't remember a time when they weren't the OP classes.

Priest feels like it only got its big boost for the year since Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, but Shaman? I remember them being weak around the time of...pre-nerf Undertaker? Goblins vs. Gnomes at least gave them mech aggro.

I was thinking, Hunter hasn't been doing so well these days in standard. I think that's because the Reno/Kazakus decks can handle them well and the pirate decks are faster than Hunter decks while Hunters themselves can't exploit it. I think if Hunter literally had just Glaivezooka in standard, they would have been up there with the other dominating pirate aggro decks. Then again, they don't have a 1-mana weapon or Rogue hero power. I guess I can check this in Wild.

Had this crazy idea to use the upcoming Rag/Sylvanus dust to craft Gelbin and ETC since there is no other way to obtain them. Of course I would wait to see what I got in the new expansion packs and what I needed to be competitive but seeing as I intend to collect all classic cards I'm going to have to bite this bullet at some point.

Oh wow, I just got to play with Gelbin today during the Tavern Brawl. It was a really fun card. Don't know about ETC.

They're both really fun cards, but also very silly cards.

Achieved all 9 golden portraits. All that's left is to get the legendary card back and collect the entire classic set and then I will have learned Hearthstone.

Nice.

I just got my 5th gold portrait. Next one is around 375. But I play only on occasion now, so it'll be a while for the next one. I already got the legend card back.

Awesome job! The closest I am is 300 wins with hunter. Everything else is less than 100. Got a long way to go.

I'm sure you'd have gotten there a long ways back if Arena counted towards them.
I am really looking forward to playing with whatever hero I want without thinking about the ones not finished which really starts limiting the diversity of play towards the end.

Oh for sure I'd have them all if arena counted. I play mostly arena when I do play now, and with those thousands of wins I'd probably have at least 2 more (one is hunter which I didnt play much for the longest time in arena). Also I miscounted. I have 6 golden portraits.

It still doesn't sound like a very good card to me, really. In the best case scenario, which is that you're using your hero power every turn anyway, it's still just a X/3 weapon for $4 where X is 3 on average, which is fine but not amazing, especially since you get the weakest hit on the turn when you spend all 6 mana on it. If you're not using your hero power every turn, it's worse than that (you might get less attack, you might have to wait before attacking, or you might use your hero power anyway and lose some tempo as a result). I guess you could technically use the hero power and then not attack to get a bigger weapon, but that's almost as awful as a Druid as it is as a Rogue.

I mean, a Druid could get Fire Elemental off of a Lotus Agents too, and that also costs $6 and deals 3 damage, but instead of a 3/2 weapon, you're left with a 6/5 body, which is a lot better than that weapon.

The next expansion seems like it has a few noteworthy cards.

http://www.hearthpwn.com/guides/2223-journey-to-ungoro-hearthstones-fifth-expansion

One of the scariest card for me might be that new Unstable (Spell) Portal. Like, maybe Mage didn't get much else to make them proactive, but the horror of Unstable Portal shall be renewed.

Zoolock is back, Devilsaur Egg into Pterror Dax is a good enough combo that that feels like it's the aggro deck to beat. (Like Nerubian Egg Zoos of the past)

And also just Devilsaur Egg into Defender of Argus seems less dramatic but still acceptable. It's a shame for Zoo that Eggnapper isn't stronger. I'm curious as to what else might curve well into Pterrordax for Zoo besides the new Egg.

So I opened 88 Packs, 50 of which came from the preorder. I got five legendaries, in this order:

Mage Quest (Open the Waygate)
Kalimos, Primal Lord
Pyros
Hunter Quest (The Marsh Queen)
Shaman Quest (Unite the Murlocs)

Pretty happy with this turnout. These Legendaries are enough to keep me busy for awhile, though I would also like to see the Warlock Legendaries in action.

I also opened five of the same epic, one of them being golden. It was that Warlock Epic minion that discovers a spell at the cost of health (Chittering Tunneler).
