I'm asking from your personal experience guys: which are the best "tiers" to get to in Arena? 5 wins, 8 wins, 11 wins? Cause I recently got 7-3 with Warlock (like I said he's the only class that gives me results lately) and only had one "good" prize: 155 gold, rest being SI:7 Agent and a s*itty pack... I wonder if stopping at 6 or "going" for 8 wins would pay off better...

Never ever leave your wins at 6, because you would have only gotten 75 gold then! Level 7 is a guaranteed 150 gold, which means the Arena run was free

But at 8 wins is where we get to the "meat" of the game That is the threshold that starts dropping Epics and Legendaries as cards! So always aim for 8 wins.

Thx!

If that Priest hadn't had that Holy Smite for 1 mana to finish my Yeti I would probably had 8 wins

Though I remember I had crappy rewards either with 8 and 9 wins (aside from gold of course). Guess that's my luck...

Yeah basically 9 wins can be worse than 7, lol, that is our beloved Hearthstone... Here is the table of what you (can) gain from each amount of win http://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Arena

Btw am ranking 6 now, my highest yet. With Priest and Druid, and atm my Priest is totally killing the mecha mages ^^ That is why I am rising I guess! Unless they get Antonidas + Cloak. That is gg beacause I have no answer to that. Currently I auto concede after that, such a joke.

Also... Unstable Portal giving Sneeds at turn 5, are you kidding me... What is this sorcery! Killing it and facing another 8/8 legendary...

This is nothing. I'm not even able to count all those wacky combos I've got with Sneed's Shredder and my Reincarnation Shaman deck. Copy him, Kel'Thuzad him, Rivendare him, Reicarnate him (when I have Reincarnate on hand I always wait for 10 mana to give him a nice "Battlecry" ) etc... This single card has given me a breath of fresh air like no other. I would like for every Legendary that I get to make such an impact on my games

EDIT: For the first time ever I've had the "Arena Freeze" bug. Don't know if I would win the game cause it was pretty tied, dependent on my next draw. 3-2, so it was my "last life", and although my deck was pretty lame there was a chance I could go a bit further with it. Decided to wait for an hour, while watching a show, but after that I had to run a different program on ma laptop and didn't want it to overheat or sth so I quitted, having lost in the process. I wonder if there was a chance my opponent would concede and the win would be on my side, or if it was already set in stone and he left a while back and I was waiting for naught (cause, for instance, the loss was automatically given for us both). Well on the good side I've got a useless golden Rare in a pack so I dusted it for some extra stuff , though I didn't receive any gold, only a card that I already have in two copies. God, I hate that card prizes in Arena, they should really remove them...

So did you guys had any experiences with "Arena Freeze"?

I crashed the game once, left it hanging there for a few hours while I was doing something else, came back to it, still was in that game, still lost when I disconnected. I doubt the other game had the patience to sit in limbo with me for so long.

How did I crash it?
play Alexstrasza, coin, recombobulate it into Jaraxxus
topdeck panda the Jaraxxus, armor up
play Jarraxxus with armor on = game freeze

In my case it was nothing that spectacular. My opponent simply played Spellbreaker. I don't know if it was because he put it back into his hand and then played him again or sth else. At first I thought he was thinking so long or simply trolling, but after a few minutes and no fuse, well...

BTW I would be really furious if this happened to me on my "twelth" game, and I've read some people had that issue

EDIT: Holy smokes! I just discovered that when you destroy Feugen and Stalagg at the same time you get Thaddius x2 Happened to me when opponent Pally casted Equality with a Wild Pyromancers on board. He probably didn't know about that either cause he had around 20 life, so bye bye...

Well, when playing against my Reincarnate Shaman deck it's not that uncommon to see 2 or 4 or more so the chances are high

Meanwhile, I decided to buy a classic pack instead of going for Arena. And while I didn't have such luck as you Minion (no Legendary) I did get one of those "important" spells I've been missing: "Preperation". Plus two commons (one that I didn't have and a second copy of one I did have). It appears that going for that classic packs is still better then GvG ones cause I rarely get sth new in them these days...

Yeah I decided that I would buy Classic packs as long as I get one card in each pack that I didn't already have 2 copies of. So far have just kept buying Classic packs. And I have only 4 Legendaries, I am not that lucky man. Malygos, Grommash Hellscream, Leeroy Jenkins and Cenarious.

I made a Mech-Shaman, because it doesn't need Lightning Storms which I lack ^^ I didn't think you could do any deck without those cards but the Mech-archetype doesn't need board clears o.O Building decks is pretty fun with incomplete card lists, must find the best substitutes.

Lacking Big Game Hunters hurt in this Dr.Balanced meta though

Apparently the next expansion to Hearthstone will be Blackrock Mountain oriented (it's not official yet, but many things like data mining, or Ragnaros card back, seem to point in that direction). Plus a Magma elemental has appeared on the official site. I wonder why they choose this location and what will it add to the game. From the "adventure" point of view it seems quite interesting, as there are many bosses to fight with. Then again what can it really offer? Another Black Dragon Legendary (Nefarian), more dragons (in this case I would be glad actually ), more elementals, Geddon is already in the game etc. Ragnaros is already present so maybe Nefarian will be the final boss. What I would personally like to see in the game are Dragonspawns (they can be intoduced as a part of either the black or chromatic dragonflight). I doubt there will be a completely new mechanic. Also this does not bode well for a possible introduction of a new class as either Death Knight or Pandaren Monk don't fit here thematically. Keep in mind that those are my own speculations. Guess we will all have to wait for the 6th of March.

PS: I wonder if they will give Ragnaros as a prize of some kind (and refund for people who already have him )

PS 2: From all the leaks this this one looks pretty legit. Another elemental for Shaman fit's nicely, plus it's mechanic seems good versus things like BGH. It would be really nice. The other one is Arena oriented probably... then again a "leak" is a "leak", it's not there until it has been proven...

I love it. But still the adventure is rather .. expensive.. and it will take quite a while for us non-buysers to open all the wings..

But yet again I love the way they do this.. Expansions, adventures and so on.

I'm already starting to hoard the money. It's a strange feeling. On one hand it's 7 packs worth of gold, on the other your guaranteed to get some new interesting cards to strategize. And some of those cards are probably worth it, just like for instance Loatheb or Reincarnate (one of my personal favorites) from Naxx before BRM.

Btw I did it. I've actually bought some packs with real money. I've fed the greedy (Blizz)Leviathan Heck, I think they deserve it, I can count how many hours I've spend on this game

I've got this Google Play gift card as a present from my friend who new I had a Tablet. Because I usually don't use Tablets to play games I was thinking of how to use this "virtual money"... It appears that Google Play is a great way to buy stuff for Hearthstone. I was thinking about buying Hearthstone stuff with real money for a long time now, but there were many obstacles. For one, I'm not a fan of paying for stuff via Internet with a credit card. I prefer pre-paid cards. Blizzard being very stubborn in their policy of what payment methods are allowed, does not want stuff like PaySafeCard, and they're taking incredibly long to introduce Battle.net gift cards in my country (if there's even a possibility to begin with :/).

Fortunately (or not ), a new way has appeared. Payment via Google Play shop. I've installed Hearthstone on the said Tablet, registered my account, supplied my account with money from the gift card and bought 7 packs. Effect? A lot of crap, golden Force of Nature (the one very useful Druid card I was missing, and when I got it it was gold ) and Archmage Antonidas. This was the final push to finally create a mech Mage deck to get back on all those weeks of suffering by the hand of this kind of decks

Do you guys know some good Mech Mage decks? It appears there are a lot of types, for instance more minion heavy or spell heavy. Any ideas?  

PS: Unfortunately this new possibility will probably be the end of me (money-wise). I'm already itching to buy more gift cards. Argh, Must... stay... strong! You... can... get...stuff for free... in this game!

Archamage Antonidas, you lucky son of a gun! Want him so badly xD Ok here goes:

Frostbolt 2
Snowchugger 2
Mirror Entity 2
Fireball 2
Goblin Blastmage 2
Archmage Antonidas 1
Clockwork Gnome 2
Cogmaster 2
Annoy-o-Tron 2
Mad Scientist 2
Mechwarper 2
Spider Tank 2
Tinkertown Technician
Mechanical Yeti 1
Piloted Shredder 2
Loatheb 1
Dr. Boom 1

This is what Kolento uses and many people have gotten to Legend because of it so go ahead and give it a try! This is quite close to the "standard" mech mage for what I can tell. Notice that indeed it doesn't have any draw mechanism so at some point prepare to be topdecking That is how aggressive this deck is, so pretty good for farming gold.

You have Ragnaros so you could use him instead of Boom or a Pyroblast. Something to finish the game when you don't draw into Antonidas.

It's pretty close to the deck I'm using. I suppose those Mad Scientists are for Mirror Entities only? I wonder how useful they really are, though trading 3 mana for the risk of your opponent summoning a weak minion justifies adding those Scientists enough (there's always this decision, play a minion or play Mirror Entity, MS helps here)... also, there's this Flamestrike option. For now I'm keeping one just in case. Though people say it fits a more defensive type of play (and Mech Mage is all about aggressiveness), it's really awkward to not include the most OP of her cards in any Mage deck. Also Piloted Sky Golem is an option here.

About Antonidas. I really like his "Perpetum Mobile" ability when he spams those Fireballs. There's simply no counter if played right because from this moment you can shoot two Fireballs per turn into infinity

I've had an occasion to craft Dr. Boom but I really hate this card. Unfortunately at some point I will probably have to craft him. I already gg'd a few games simply because my opponent played him...

ATM I'm very close to crafting Cenarius. He's not a gg kind of legendary, but I simply must have him for my "Ysera's Dream" deck. Malorne and Ysera are already present Btw I recently read some opinions on top legandaries. It seem many people treat Sylvannas as a top legendary to craft, but I beg to differ. Imo she's still to situational or just doesn't fit my play-style (I suck at playing Priest which would suggest I'm not the kind of player who's good at using my opponents strength against him). Plus, like with Dr. Boom, I don't really like her as a card. Counting my luck, she's a card that would always backfire on me While we're at it, they say Malorne is very weak. While he's not the top choice for crafting, some people seem to treat him like King Krush ("he just lies there in my collection" kind of treatment). Turn 5 Malorne with Innervate has won me many games already. He's just to big of a threat in mid game, especially when boosted with MotW or something...

I have also thought about paying for some cards, considering how many hours I am putting into this game.. And yesterday I thought about all those silly cards I bought when I was a kid and this is exactly the same, except these are stored online for eternity

But I still reluctant to buying any. I am thinking about buying the whole adventure pack and just have fun with it.

Yeah, my MtG cards are still laying in the drawer

Well, it's handy to know there's and option to pay via Google Play. It was really hard to find any way to buy stuff for Hearthstone with real money. I play the game on my laptop, I've only used the said Tablet to cash in that gift card (though it's also nice to know you can play the game for instance when sitting on "the throne"). Only time will tell if I'll use more of this gift cards. I've already checked, they're really easy to get...

But personally I find physical cards more certain then an account which can be hacked...

Mirror Entity works like Loatheb in a way. At turns 5-7 it prevents your opponent from making a power play. Turn 6 Sylvanas can't be played and especially turn 7 Dr Boom can't be played. Also with the Mad Scientist it trims down your deck while gaining tempo. Just so good when it works. The problem is nowadays that people have learned to play around it very well, because Mech Mages run Mirror Entities, so I cut my deck down to 1 ME already so you should play with it and see how it feels like. But the thing here is that even when they feed you a 1 mana card it means that they didn't play a bigger minion which makes you retain board control.

My MtG cards are collecting dust too xDDD

A shame it's not "Arcane" Dust though...

BTW I've read a preview of the first Blackrock boss. It seem Foe Reaper 4000 will be useful in this adventure. One might think of crafting him (his not on my top list, yet I've always wanted him in my Mech Paladin deck or as a duo with my Sneed's Shredder )
