Tips for Beginners

Now that we have shown you what gives you Gold, we will discuss the steps you should take when first playing Hearthstone to spend your Gold effectively.

  • Play against every class to earn the achievement: Ready to Go! To earn 100 Gold
  • Next, defeat every Expert AI Hero to earn the achievement: Crushed Them All! For another 100 Gold
  • After that, reach level ten with every Hero to earn the achievement: Got the Basics! For an additional 100 Gold
  • Next, complete three games in Play Mode. If you need help building a deck, check out our guide library for hundreds of decks
  • The Arena will be your next stop to make Gold. The first entry is free and as you play The Arena more you will begin to understand the basic mechanics of all the cards. If you feel uncomfortable entering The Arena stick to Casual Mode until you feel comfortable.
  • Lastly, the Chicken Dinner achievement is awarded for earning a 100 wins so that should be your next achievement

A final piece of advice is if you do not wish to play The Arena! Feel free to spend your Gold on Card Packs if you want to play Ranked Mode competitively. Hope you find this Hearthstone gold guide useful!
