Got shirvallah for my free one. That seems fine.

My first ten packs legendary was bwonsamdi. Which is fine also I suppose.

Got Shirvallah! pretty hyped for that leg, both on meme and competitive decks. Hopes it sees lots of play.

EDIT: now that I think about it, it goes well with me and my avatar lol.

I didn't preorder for the first time in forever. Using 4180 saved gold, I got these legendaries: (47 total packs)

GOOD GRIEF that fireworks sound every pack is annoying.

* Jan'alai (I also got the mage spirits, but maybe everyone gets matched spirits + legendary)
* Hir'eek, the Bat
* Hex Lord Malacrass
* War Master Voone

Epics:
* 2x Linecracker
* 2x Treespeaker
* 2x Blast Wave
* Void Contract
* Gurubashi Offering
* Cannon Barrage
* Crowd Roaster
* Master's Call
* (golden) The Beast Within


The theme of the expansion actively makes me not want to play. I hope to try the single-player content though.

I don't open my packs until this evening, but there is no doubt I will get Hi'reek. I have like 100% of the bad class legendaries from every set and I'm an F2P player!

Free Jan'alai, one of the two Loa that were auto-crafts as my freebie. Happy for that, saved me 1600 dust. Opening 140 packs later tonight, so that should be... at least 4 legendaries with my garbo luck

got Krag'Wa and the Shaman loa as the freebies, then Zentimo, High Priest Thekal, Juljin, and a golden Oondasta (lol) from 69 packs. pretty happy especially considering how bad my haul was for Boomsday. i also got an inordinate amount of golden cards, so i have almost 7000 dust save up and have no idea where to dump it

APM Priest Feat. Mass Hysteria is winning games pretty easily. Until I lose them by messing up the combo.

I think this is the first expansion I didn't preorder, just spent 2K gold on stuff.

Free legendary was Gonk (lol), pity legendary was Hakkar (double lol).

Quest zul'jin secret rexar has some serious tools, man. I can beat fatigue decks as well as midrange. zul'jin recasts the quest so if your deck is full of raptors you just get carnassa again lol. and I only need secret keepers in my deck as 1 drops bc you can copy halazzi (the 5 cost 3/2 that fills your hand with lynxes) so easily, and p much guarantee you have it turn 5 to finish the quest turn 6

I don't think it ever occurred to me that you could double up the quest that way.

Got Gonk as my free, boo. Had by fingers crossed for Kragwa oh well.

Dragon Roar is absurd in arena. I got Alextrasza and Sindragosa from one of them. And had a blood razor equipped b4 playing Sind for insta legendaries, one of which was War Master Voone, so I got to copy Alex, Emberscale Drake and Dragonmaw Sorcer. I won that game :p

in wild you can use barnes too, but like I said the quest is very consistent if you run stitched tracker/master's call (the 3 drop draw 1/3 beasts), you should be able to copy halazzi by turn 3/4, play it turn 5, and play 6 lynxes turn 6. if you had a secret keeper turn 1, the quest is done.

that lynx is pretty decent for getting some use out of stampede before the meta speeds up lol, same with halazzi

It looks like Secret Hunter and Odd Mage are the early favorites on HSReplay.

Mojomaster Zihi has interesting stats, 44% deck win rate but 50% played winrate. You shouldn't have to put it in a bad deck to play it and it's apparently doing work in those bad decks, but I guess those stats might also happen if people are too greedy with it.

Jeklik keeps its stats as it gets discarded and multiplies. So if you buff her first they will all be buffed.

Got 100 gold from game wins for the first time in over a year. Whizzbang is actually pretty fun. Best to enjoy it before the meta gets settled and everyone is playing the same 4 or 5 tier one decks.

I want to try discardlock, but I not even close to having a right cards. I'm missing a few legendaries and epics. I could have enough, but I don't want to waste dust if it's dookie.

Oh, I guess Jun'alai is at least 8 damage with your hero power. I was skipping the hero power so much thinking it was exactly 8, until one time I felt I had to hero power over the limit.
