Even if you’re the unluckiest pack opener in the world, Hearthstone‘s new “welcome bundle” guarantees you at least one legendary.
Today Blizzard announced a special deal for its online card battler Hearthstone, and it’s a doozy. For a mere $4.99, the “Welcome Pack” contains ten classic hearthstone packs, and one guaranteed Legendary card. Considering the regular price for Hearthstone cards is ~$1.50 a pack, that’s absolutely insane value. So what’s the catch? You can only buy the “Welcome Pack” one time per battle.net account.
As for that free guaranteed Legendary, it will be a random non-golden class legendary from the classic set. Of course, there is still a chance that you will get lucky and unwrap additional legendarily in the 10 included packs but this is one of the few times Hearthstone has actually guaranteed players a Legendary card.
Here are the nine classic class legendaries to refresh your memory:
Blizzard has stated that even though this is called the “Welcome” pack, the promotion is available for all players new and old. However, it did suggest that this would be a limited time deal, although it didn’t offer any timeline as to when the promotion would end.
The Welcome Pack will be available for sale together with Hearthstone‘s next content update, which could be tomorrow after server maintenance.
