Hearthstone Heroes of Warcraft, developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment, is a digital card game. It’s the first free Blizzard game, a company known for many games but mostly for World of Warcraft MMORPG. As the name suggests, Hearthstone is set in the Warcraft universe. There are 9 playable Hearthstone heroes. Each hero is associated with one of the World of Warcraft classes. Hearthstone is available for Microsoft Windows, MAC OS X and there’s also an iOS mobile version. The battles are turn based. Each turn players choose a card to play. There are different types of Hearthstone cards. Playing a card is similar to performing an action. Using their cards players cast abilities, use weapons or summon minions.
Developers made Hearthstone accessible to players new to card games or Warcraft games franchise. It’s not hard to understand the basic mechanics. The more you play it, the better you get so the best Hearthstone tutorial is trying a few practice mode matches. Practice mode is specially made for testing and training. In this mode players compete against computer controlled opponents. Difficulty can be adjusted from basic to expert. This is a good Hearthstone mode for trying different strategies or new decks. Play mode is the Hearthstone PvP mode. Hearthstone play mode matches are ranked and count towards players rating. The ladders reset weekly so players need to be active and engaged if they want to top the Hearthstone leaderboards. Hearthstone uses the battle.net network just like Diablo 3 online RPG and other Blizzard games. Creating a battle.net account is free. When playing matches against human opponents, players are automatically paired up depending on their level and rank. Winning Hearthstone matches rewards card packs. The Forge is another Hearthstone mode. Players are given cards which they’ll use to create decks and then battle each other. Collection Manager is a Hearthstone feature players use to create new cards and decks. Cards can be disenchanted and the resulting items are used to put together new cards.
There are 2 types of Hearthstone cards: basic and expert. Players start with basic cards and earn more by playing matches. Expert cards are crafted or gained from card packs. There are 4 card rarities: common, rare, epic and legendary. There are certain deck building rules that explain how many cards of each type and rarity can be placed in a Hearthstone deck. Unlike other free MMO games, Hearthstone doesn’t use premium currency. Players directly buy additional card packs from the Blizzard store. All 300 Hearthstone cards can also be obtained just by playing the game. Hearthstone doesn’t support card trading between players and there are no plans to add such a feature.
