(Video) Get MORE Gold and Dust in Hearthstone By Doing 1 THING

  • completing Daily Quests;
  • completing Unique Quests;
  • winning games in Play Mode;
  • playing in the Arena.

Players receive one new daily quest each day, which can be viewed in yourQuest Log. Players can have up to three daily quests in their log at any time, andwill be unable to receive any new daily quests so long as there are uncompleted questsin their Quest Log. For this reason, we recommend that players who are looking to acquiregold as quickly as possible ensure they always have at least one open slot in their QuestLog at the end of each day.

Daily quests reward between 40 and 100 gold each, and can be completed inPlay Mode or in the Arena. You can not complete Daily Quests by challengingyour friends or by playing against the AI.

Once per day you may replace one daily with a new random questby pressing the small X in the upper right corner of the quest in your QuestLog. We recommend that you replace each quest which does not reward 60 or more gold,as there is there a chance it will be replaced by a new quest that does.

Here is a complete list of the Daily Quests in Hearthstone:

Winning 3 games in Play Mode awards 10 Gold, up to a maximum of 100 Goldper day. This feature is exclusive to Play Mode (both Casual and Ranked gamescount towards your progression), which means you will not benefitfrom it while playing the Arena, Practice Mode, or when challenging yourfriends.


Earning Prizes in the Arena

Entry into the Arena costs 150 Gold (or 1.99 USD / 1.49 GPB / 1.79 EUR).Regardless of the outcome, each Arena run is guaranteed to reward one pack of cards.Most players choose to invest all of their hard-earned Gold in the Arena instead of buyingpacks from the Shop. This is due to the fact that the Arena will typically rewardmore than 150 Gold in prizes to any player who can achieve three or more wins beforethey lose three games. Additionally, playing the Arena is a great way to improve yourunderstanding of the game's strategy and mechanics. By becoming a better playerin the Arena you will likely receive a greater return on your investment of Gold thanif you choose to spend your Gold on packs.
