Blizzard Entertainment is bringing the Golden Hero card to Hearthstone with their next patch, allowing for the super-rare card type in the decks of dedicated players.
Golden Cards in Hearthstone exist as a rare variant to any card in Blizzard’s card battling title, featuring animated artwork rather than a stationary face, Heroes will now move while in combat if you have their gold card.
“When you hit 500 wins in Ranked Play mode with any given Hero, that particular Hero will become golden permanently.
Players may track hero progress quickly and easily on the deck selection screen in Ranked Play mode. For those further interested in the design of their cards, custom backers may be purchased in the free-to-play Beta test. Buying any backer will grant a player unique animations for their player portrait and a unique Hero Power animation.
Though the title is still in Beta phase, anyone may play the title, and the “Beta” tag is more of a formality. If you’re looking to pay in and invest in your account, don’t expect your content to disappear. Of course you may still earn your decks the old fashioned way – by finishing daily quests, winning online matches, and completing battles in the arena.
