As the current Standard year comes to the end, Blizzard is running a series of events in the run up to the rotation window.
Starting next week, completing your quests will take on a whole new significance. The reward for finishing a quest is a whole card pack.
This is a big change. In gold terms, a card pack costs 100 gold. Some quests are worth that much already, but most are 40 or 50 gold.
The event gets underway at 11:59pm on March 26, and runs for 14 days until April 9. The card packs can be from any of the 2017 expansions—Journey to Un’Goro, Knights of the Frozen Throne, and Kobolds & Catacombs—or even from the upcoming expansion The Witchwood. Those packs, of course, can’t be opened until the new expansion goes live in April.
Blizzard didn’t reveal the chance of getting each pack, suggesting that it’s random which pack is rewarded. That might be disappointing to some free to play players, who rely on quest gold to be able to buy packs from the upcoming expansion.
But still, it’s a pretty cool reward from each quest. Now instead of a small amount of gold, players can enjoy the satisfaction of busting open a pack every day. Don’t forget to maximize your gold from wins every day too—every little helps with an expansion just around the corner.
