A Glimpse of Hearthstone’s Basic Gameplay Concept

Hello and welcome and today, I will be giving you the basic of the basic of Hearthstone game Teschet style. This article is dedicated to the very basics of the game and explain all the gameplay mechanics all should be aware of.

So, for the obvious place to start when you go into a match after picking one of the currently nine available heroes or classes, you will randomly go first or second. If you go first, you will be met by three cards, and if you go second, you will see four of them instead right in front of you. Right after that, you will have partial mulligan, where you pick any of the four cards that you think you do not need to be replaced by other cards in the hope of getting something better.

From that point on, it is time to play your cards but one thing to note is here is that if you are going second, you are a very special person and you will be getting a unique card called the “coin” which allows you to increase your attack for one turn. That is why make use of it wisely because it can be incredibly useful. . Of course, the most important to look for though is your health pole. Everyone gets around 30 at the beginning of the match and you will win by depleting your enemies health pole to zero.

Another thing is that you can not go beyond the given 30 health pole. What you can do, however, is to increase your armor.  Any damage will be taken by your armor and the good thing is that you can stack this infinitely. You will always take damage first with your armor because taking damage into your health pole.

Now, every turn you will get to use a mana crystal up to a maximum of 10. If you have cards that increase mana pass ten, you will instead get excess mana cards which will allow you to draw card. Of course, every turn you will get a car up to a maximum of 10. Any excess will get destroyed. And if you run out of card, you will take damage every time you draw a card. This damage amplifies by 1 every time you must draw. Take note, you can get cards buy buying them on packs, however, those guys that  makes more gold than most of the players. And it does allow them to get the best card deck possible.

Cards, by the way, come in 3 different types — spells, equipments, and minions. Spells are the ones that give you fireball, ice and things like that. They are one-time used cards and currently there is no neutral spells meaning they are all class specific. Equipments on the other hand will equip your heroes with a certain equipment mainly all kinds of lovely weapons.  Equipment both have an attack value and a durability value. Attack value decides how much damage your hero can incur to its enemy while durability value decreases by one each time you attack. Once it reaches zero, it will explode can possibly damage your hero. Lastly, you have your minion cards which will summon all your lovely servants into the battle field. Minions have both attack value and health value. These minions come in so many variety with different kinds of abilities. It is also worth noting that you can only have a maximum of 7 minions at a time.

That would be it for the first installment of Hearthstone basic. Make sure to share this with those who play the game and bookmark this page for the upcoming update.
