Hearthstone Will Implement Core Sets By Replacing Basic And Classic Sets
Hearthstone Will Implement Core Sets By Replacing Basic And Classic Sets.
MMOBEEP found out that Hearthstone has been rotating expansion sets for Standard play every year, as it copied what Wizards of the Coast had been doing for Magic: The Gathering for about 25 years. Magic does change up its core set of basic cards, which is a step Hearthstone has yet to adopt.
That’s going to change in 2021. Nevertheless, when Hearthstone renews its Basic and Classic cards with a new, 235-card Core Set. 29 cards in the set will be unique, with most of the rest coming from Classic, Basic, and Wild. As with the Basic Set, you’ll earn Core Sets cards by leveling up the game’s various classes so that all Core Set cards will be available for free. If you’re an old player, you’ll get the cards you’re entitled to based on your level after the update. Like Magic: the Gathering, Hearthstone’s Core Set will be exchanged out each year.
So what gonna happen with old Basic and Classic cards? They’ll go to the Wild under the moniker “Legacy Set,” along with most of the cards in the Hall of Fame. You’ll also be able to utilize them in the new Classic form, which employs the original 240 cards from Hearthstone’s launch “as they were in 2014,” in all their pre-nerfed grandeur. I guess World of Warcraft isn’t the only Blizzard game getting the “classic” treatment.
As a bonus to all players, Hearthstone will increase from 18 to 27 deck slots once the new format goes live. Blizzard ensures more unveils next week at BlizzConline; for now, you can discover all there is to know about the new Core Sets on the Hearthstone site.
