It’s a fair assumption to think all expansion keywords are that expansion only unless stated otherwise. Sometimes we have a mechanic that makes sense to keep around in Hearthstone long-term (Rush, Discover) but we let most keywords live in one set only so they rotate to Wild cleanly and make way for…

Wow I didn’t see that. I was just reading the forums as I usually do and thought the thread was a good place for insight, even if we disagree.

What makes the current reborn quest powerful isn’t really the reborn minions themselves, but what you can do with the hero power. There are enough reborn minions from Uldum alone that allow Paladin to fairly easily complete the quest. Right now, they are using cards like Mechano-Egg and Mechanical W…

No need to worry Smoochers, they’re both still available and are the same rarities as when they were released. Perhaps it’s just been a streak of unfortunate luck if you’re hunting for those two specific passive treasures.

We’re actively looking at player data to find outliers in Heroic that are ‘too easy’ or ‘too hard’ compared to other bosses around that tier. Linzi is on that list of ‘too hard’, so we’ll be addressing her (and others) soon™!

The interaction between Taunt and Immune is similar to the interaction of Taunt and Stealth. If a Taunt minion possesses either of these other keywords, it stops working until that keyword is removed. These interactions have been in Hearthstone since the start, but Immune as a Keyword in the colle…

Would agree with most in this thread to say that the cards that fit least with your deck are Goblin Bomb and maybe Cybertech, though that one I like because it’s fun! I would suggest trying to use the ‘complete my deck’ feature on various cards in your deck. For example, you can just take out the G…

We went back and forth on this during design. Should minions with “Can’t Attack” be allowed to attack? 0 Attack minions? Frozen minions? You could make arguments for each of these. Ultimately, it came down to Supercollider - we use the same wording for both and we wanted these two weird cards to ac…
