Hearthstone Update Aims To Keep Legendary Cards Fresh

by Jeff Cork on Jun 22, 2017 at 01:53 PM

Duplicate cards are one of life's annoyances, at least for Hearthstone players. Blizzard has heard from fans and is incorporating some changes to the way cards are distributed, which will be a boon for those who are looking to add more legendaries to their decks.

Once the update goes live, any legendary card you own or gain from a new pack will be removed from the distribution pool until you have all the legendary cards from that set. You'll also be guaranteed to get a legendary card within the first 10 packs of a new set, starting with the next expansion. 

Check out the video below for complete details.

In addition to these upcoming changes, Blizzard has announced a deal for Journey to Un'Goro card packs. For a limited time, players will get bonus packs with purchased bundles – two extra packs with seven-pack bundles; five additional packs with the 15-pack bundles; and a dozen extra with the 40-pack bundles. The PC-exclusive 60 pack option gets a bonus 18 packs, too.
