Excellent to ‘Really Good’ Basic Cards in Hearthstone:

This is a list of the cards that I think are the ‘best’ out of the basic set. These are the cards you are given to start with, for free, by the game.

And even though these are all ‘old cards’ you’ll find them used in many ‘meta decks’ to this day. So for new players try to focus on making your starting decks using these cards. Notice that MAGE has the most listed by far. I think this is intentional by Blizzard and most people start out with mage decks as a result.

 

All:

  • Boulderfist Ogre
  • Frostwolf Warlord
  • Chillwind Yeti
  • Shattered Sun Cleric
  • Wolfrider
  • Acidic Swamp Oooze
  • Bloodfen Raptor (till you get something better in this slot)

Druid

  • Swipe
  • Wild Growth
  • Innervate

Hunter

  • Tundra Rhino
  • Houndmaster
  • Animal Companion
  • Kill Command
  • Hunter’s Mark

Mage

  • Flamestrike
  • Fireball
  • Polymorph
  • Water Elemental
  • Arcane Intellect
  • Frost Nova (iffy)
  • Frostbolt
  • Arcane Missiles
  • Mirror Image

  • Truesilver Champion
  • Blessing of Kings
  • Consecration

Priest

  • Holy Nova
  • Shadow Word: Death
  • Shadow Word: Pain
  • Mind Vision
  • Power Word: Shield
  • Northshire Cleric

Rogue

  • Assassinate
  • Fan of Knives
  • Sap
  • Deadly Poison
  • Backstab

Shaman

  • Fire Elemental
  • Bloodlust
  • Hex
  • Flametongue Totem
  • Rockbiter Weapon

Warlock

  • Hellfire
  • Shadow Bolt
  • Mortal Coil
  • Soulfire
  • Voidwalker

Warrior

  • Kor’kron Elite
  • Shield Block
  • Fiery War Axe (Possibly the best card in the game.)
  • Execute
  • Whirlwind

Edit: Good arguments were made to take out Ironbark Protector and Sprint as being to slow for new player’s decks.

The PAIN of gaming

So I gotta be ready for the new WoW expansion to hit tomorrow but I have a fantasy football draft tonight! Gamer cramp!

Actually do want to play WoW for at least an hour tonight. I went and spent a fortune in in game gold for all heirloom gear on a druid that I’m leveling through the pre-expansion invasions event. I was able to get it to 92 and buy myself an XP boost potion. Gotta get that 100!

I’m predicting a very bad year in Fantasy football this year, because I haven’t paid attention to any Pro stats in a LONG time. I do think I’ll try and draft Dak tonight though!

Jedi Knight looks as he leveled

Here are some images of my Jedi Knight as I took him through the class storyline. Still think the agent looked the best, and had the best story line. MOST of Bar’rior’s gear was crafted by my Bounty Hunter and that gives my BH a real reason to hate Jedi’s because it nearly broke him doing all that crafting ‘for free’.

SWTOR Bounty Hunter looks through the levels.

Here’s what my bounty hunter looked like as he leveled.

BountyHunter.15

I started out with some sweet gear because of a mistake. I ran the first ‘dungeon’ as a group solo instead of the actual SOLO INSTANCE version. I was able to solo it and got good looking gear for my trouble!

BountyHunter.25

This set I crafted myself.

BountyHunter.36

BountyHunter.39

BountyHunter.40

BountyHunter.45

BountyHunter.46

BountyHunter.50

BountyHunter.52

BountyHunter.52aThe bounty hunter was also my armor crafter so lots of his sets were created BY HIM and used as he leveled. VERY NICE!

SWTOR Looking better!

This is my beefy Sith Warrior at level 19.
