Oh well who cares.. never gotta do LFR now. I'll stick to just flex for my runestones.


Meh, the last two wings of ToT LFR give runestones too, it's worth it to do those. As a happy aside, I think nearly everyone in there is decent-players' alts looking for runestones - have had really, really quick runs of those for the last month or so.

Related: Got legendary cloak #6 yesterday. That's all of my 90s, so no more of that silliness. :)

Semi-related: Finally got the Torall to drop for my priest, been wanting that for mog for a while. Still should get the 2H Axe from Lei-shen for my warrior for mog as well at some point.

The first Arena run is free, but i'd suggest getting your ass kicked a few times in Unranked mode to get and idea of what you like. And a bit of reading to catch up on the advanced concepts like BREAD if you're not a big CCG fan.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Huh.

I've been running Flex with another guild, because it's really the only one at the only time that I can go without having to worry overly about my mother during her chemo treatments.

I'm consistently the bottom healer, partly because of gear, and because I'm the only one of the 4-6 who doesn't have the legendary. Apparently, in spite of that, I've managed to impress the healing officer enough that she inquired as to my (non-existent) guild raid schedule.

According to her, I do quite well with my gear, but it's the fact I can follow instructions that's the clincher. :D

And there goes the monk to level 90 to. Also, since they changed the raf thingies to an ingame thing, I saw I had a spare reward :o No idea where it came from, but I got the new flying thing ^^ (Also started a new raf with my gf to finally get a 2 seater mount aswell :p but we are "only" level 50 after about 5 hours playing... :roll: )

I played a good deal of TG back in the day (yikes, thats along time ago), so I got the basics down (Hearthstone seems a good deal less involved) - but "BREAD"?

Also, what I seem to need currently is to learn what tricks I can come up against (and the balance between fast play and hard play in regards to minions). I'm the guy who always needed a spare table for my MTG deck (well figuratively speaking) - I keep running into too much lowcost or not getting stuff when I need it.

BREAD is a priority system for Draft, it stands for:

Bomb - the cards that win the game. Think the big killer Legendaries and stuff.
Removal - cards that can stop Bombs dead in their tracks. Silences, minion killer, the works.
Evasion management - things that impede the enemy's minion from hitting your face, or allows you to bypass those evasive manoeuvers. Taunts are the big ones, Freezes are another one. Silences could count as an anti-evasion.
Another version lists Efficiency here: things that are above their cost in value (Chillwind Yeti).
Aggro/Abilities - things that hurt, one way or another. Knife Juggler is the poster child here.
Dregs - the rest.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

So going through an arena draft or a "suggets cards" in make your own set, I should follow BREAD from left to right (in general) - so I should always pick up Gelbin Mekkatoque for instance (iin the make your own deck - I would surmise that he will never show up in an arena draft).

(talking about this, aren't we enough HS'ers by now that we sorta need a specific thread for this (like we have for pet battles and MTG)?

It's in the Other Games forum. And no, Gelbin Mekkatorque is a pretty weak legendary.

I used this as a guide when I first started on Arena drafts. Only covers Common neutral cards, but the reasoning helped me.

Same here, extra reward.

Was tempted by the Nightwing thing, but since I already have the crotch-rocket, I haggled it out about the pets. Got the gold piggy because the only other place to get it was from Chinese servers, for one week (Christmas to New Years, I think). Back in 07 or 08.

And the silver piggy was a little too white.

Commencing extra long weekend. Most of which will be sitting around at home relaxing to use up some holidays before year's end, but Sunday I'll actually be heading off to a comic con, and also having lunch with old friends from Uni who happen to live in the area.

Wish I had known as I reached that part on an alt recently and could have used some help. :)

On a success related note: I now have 9 level 90s. Finally got my Shaman the last few levels. Only my Druid and Monk left for a full house.

Still need that help? Because it is really easy when you figure it out... I did it without speed boosts, leaving combat, or abusing the guards at the ToT entrance ;)
