Hearthstone Guide to Obtain Gold

Hearthstone Guide to Obtain Gold


Hearthstone is the first free to play card game by Blizzard. It could be played without spending any real money, but by knowing the ways to obtain gold in the game, you will be able to obtain the cards needed to build your decks much faster. We will show you the ways to obtain gold in the game without spending.


Four ways to obtain gold for free in Hearthstone

  • Daily quests
  • Unique quests
  • Winning games in either casual or ranked play
  • Earn gold in Arena


1. Daily quests

You will receive a new daily quest each day, which could be found in your quest log. A total of three quests could be stored in your quest log. So if you have three daily quests stored in your quest log, you would not be able to receive new daily quests until you complete at least one to make room for new quests.


Daily quests reward could be 40, 60 or 100 gold each. It could be completed by either playing in casual play, ranked play or even in the arena. However, most daily quests could not be completed by challenging your friends, or by practice games with the computer.


Each day, you will be able to replace one daily quest with another random daily quest by pressing the little “x” at the upper right corner of the quest in the quest log. So, whenever you have a quest that only rewards 40 gold, it would be sensible to replace it, and have a chance to get a daily quest with higher gold reward.


Here is the list of daily quests in Hearthstone.

3. Winning games in either Casual or Ranked Play

Every 3 wins in either Casual or Ranked Play will be awarded with 10 Gold, with a maximum of 100 Gold awarded per day.


4. Earn Gold in Arena

Each entry to the Arena would cost 150 Gold (USD1.99, EUR1.79, GBP1.49). Apart from Gold and Arcane Dust rewards, each Arena run would be guaranteed a Card Pack reward. This is the reason why most players would invest all the gold earned into the Arena. Players who is able to win at least a few games would make up for the entry cost or even gain in excess to the entry cost.


Playing in the Arena would be a good way for players to explore different strategies in Hearthstone, as each player would start an Arena run with a different deck, improving players understanding of the game and the game mechanics.


Each win in the Arena would upgrade the key to unlock the rewards. The Arena run will end when you have been defeated 3 times or after reaching 12 wins, whichever comes first. Below, we will list the possible rewards based on the total wins in the Arena.

Best method to get started with Hearthstone

Once you have completed the tutorial, you can start earning Gold by completing the unique quests.

  • You will start the game with a primary hero which is the Mage. Get that Mage to level 10 by playing against different classes until you win a game at least, to unlock the other heroes. You will get the first reward of 100 Gold by getting any class to level 10.
  • Continue fighting until you unlock all the other classes, and get the next reward of 100 Gold.
  • Then level all the other heroes till level 10. By doing so, you will be rewarded with 100 Gold, and also unlocking all the basic cards, which is another 100 Gold reward.
  • Defeat all the Expert AI in Practice mode. The reward is 100 Gold.
  • Start playing in Play mode, and try to win 3 games. The reward is 1 card pack and 100 Gold.
  • Enter the Arena. The first entry to the Arena is free.

Thereafter, you will need to complete daily quests, participate in Arena, and win in either Casual Play or Ranked Play to be able to gain more gold. Remember that in Play mode, the reward is up to 100 Gold each day, with 10 Gold reward for winning every 3 games.
