Play in the Arena on Hearthstone Heroes of Warcraft on iPhone 6
Edited by Grimm, Rushell, Eng
Welcome to VisiHow. Today, we are going to be showing you how you can enter and play in the arena in the Hearthstone: Heroes of World of Warcraft game on your iPhone 6.
To get started, you will need to have the game open.
If you don't have it open already, you're going to need to press the Home button, which is the center button at the bottom of your phone. Find the Hearthstone icon, and tap it to enter the game.
Then you'll need to go down to the bottom and tap on The Arena.
A message will appear explaining that the Arena normally requires an entry fee, but since it's our first time here, it's on the house.
I have already paid the entry fee on my other account, but since this is my tutorial account, I have not played in the arena yet.
Let's get started chopping up monsters.
The first thing we need to do is choose a hero.
Only one of our heroes has a custom deck, and I happen to know it's the Warrior, so we'll choose that one.
After tapping on our selected hero, he will come in closer and show a little more information.
To confirm our selection, we need to tap Choose.
Now, we're going to pick a card to add our deck.
The first card that appears is the Enrage card.
It gives me +5 attack. Angry chicken, better watch out for those angry chickens. Alternatively, I could choose the second card. When using that, when I cast a spell, I will get a Violet Apprentice. I don't cast spells, so we're not going to do that. The third card would allow me to deal one damage to all minions, and if I have 12 or less health, I would deal 3 damage instead.
The third card is not too bad because by the time you have 12 health points or less, your opponent is realistically going to have three or four minions floating around, and you're going to really wish that you could do something to them without using all of your magic stuff.
So let's choose that card.
The dwarf says keep it up.
We're going to get some more cards.
Looking at the next set of cards from the right, the first one says Whenever you cast a spell, draw a card.
Well, casting a spell is using your armor ability. However, by the time you're up in the 6 range, you're probably not doing that. The middle card states, Whenever a friendly minion takes damage, gain one Armor. That is a nice card. The card on the left is Deal 2 damage to ALL characters. I like the card in the middle.
We have to finish selecting all of our cards.
I am going to go ahead and do that quickly, so we can move on. It's important to have some low powered cards because if you don't have low powered cards, you will end up in a position where you wish that you had low powered cards because there is nothing else you can do. Also, any time a card costs 0, generally speaking, take it. You will wish that you had it whenever you get to play that.
For this particular deck, I'm choosing special cards that I don't normally otherwise have access to.
I think this is kind of cool. Now, that I'm getting closer to the end, I'm stacking my deck with lower level cards. The reason I am doing that is it allows me to boost up the ability of me to stack cards. I can put out three or four cards at a time if I get the right set of cards that pop out. Hopefully, I will end up getting the right set of cards.
Now, I get to challenge another arena player, so let's go.
Tap on Play in the lower right corner of the screen to move on.
Now, it is finding an opponent for me.
Let's see How do I against someone else. As a general rule of thumb, most of the people out there playing this game are fairly experienced. It can take a minute for the process of searching for an opponent to finish.
Looks like we have Warlock as our opponent.
This should be interesting. Apparently my soul should be his, so we'll see.
I have a 2, a 2, and a 4.
I'm going to get rid of my 4.
Then I'm going to tap Confirm.
I'm hoping to get a 1.
Well, it's another 4.
That's okay because it's a better 4 card than the other one was.
There's nothing I can do right now because I don't have a 1 card.
Despite my best efforts, I do not have access to a 1 or 0 card, which were in my deck. I have to tap on end turn.
My opponent has the option to play a 1 card or play the manna card.
Looks like he's going to play the manna card.
He's going to do something with the 2.
Let's see what he does. He put up a card to protect himself. That was his first play.
Now, I will have the option to play, well, the only card that I have, which is my 2.
So I'll tap on that. Now, I can play that 2, or I can give myself 2 armor, which will protect me from what I assume will be his attack.
I'm going to go ahead and play the War Axe card just because I don't want to have to deal with his thing in my face.
Now, I'm going to tap on end turn.
He's going to pick his cards and play them.
He put another target dummy up.
Then he put another taunt card up.
He's trying quite hard to protect himself, and he's probably going to succeed at doing a reasonably good job of that.
Here is a card that deals 2 damage to random enemies.
It will get rid of his target dummy card.
Now, I can attack again and get rid of the other one.
So far, I'm missing 3 health, and he has nothing standing in between himself and my guy.
Hopefully, one of my 0 cards or one of my low 1 cards will come out soon, so I can do something other than bounce around him. Now, I'm in a position where I want get rid of a card before he's able to use it to start restoring health to himself. So what do I have? Deal 1 damage to all minions? No, I'll not be using that.
This one is Battlecry:
Give your other minions Windfury, Taunt, and Divine Shield. No because they're not ready.
Axe Flinger, deal 2 damage to the enemy hero.
Kor'kron Elite with Charge.
I like this one, so let's use it.
It has a 4 attack.
It could go now. Let's kill it.
Now, it's gone.
That prevents him from being able to use the ability of that card. My goal at this point is to simply unseating this guy and making sure that I am able to successfully play without being destroyed, not that it isn't going to happen because a properly played Warlock is actually a powerful character. Let's see what he decides to play out of his deck of four. He played a monster that has more health than I can currently defeat.
Now, I have the ability to play one of the cards I have at the bottom.
The only choice I have is to play one of my 4 cards because I don't have enough health. Let's do this.
Now, this guy has taunt, which will force him to attack it.
I will end my turn because there's nothing else I can do.
This is why, as you saw when I was picking through the deck, it's extremely important to stack your deck with some lower cost cards, ones, twos, and whatever else.
Now, he's going to attack that guy, which will destroy him.
He's also going to attack this guy, which will also destroy him and leave us basically back where we were.
Now, what do we have?
I have six cards. I can play a 4 and a 2, which is probably what I'm going to do. I'll play this 4.
Now, I'll play a 2.
Let's play this one. That's all I can do this turn, so we'll end our turn.
Now, he's going to play one of the cards that he has, and this is going to continue on.
Let's go ahead and continue. We're not too far into this tutorial that I would deny you the joy of seeing me get chopped to pieces by another guy. Now, my health is at 22. Here's my Lord of the Arena card, a very powerful card.
I'm going to attack this guy a few times, and I'm going to try and knock him down into my area.
This card was Anytime it takes damage, deal 2 damage to the enemy hero.
In theory, what I should have done was attack this guy because I still would have had health, and I still would have done the 2 damage that I already did to him.
I wasn't paying attention. More than anything else, that is what will cause you to lose in this game.
He's going to shoot me with 4 damage.
Then he is going to attack me with one of his cards probably.
Now, here's the problem.
He wasn't paying attention either, or he would have tried to kill this card with one of his minions. However, he did not.
Now, I have this guy who's going to give all my other minions +1, which is extremely powerful.
I could have played a different combo, but there's a reason I didn't.
Let's see what this card has.
Whenever a friendly minion takes damage, gain 1 Armor. That's exactly what I want to do.
I'm going to attack with 3, which is going to be enough to kill this 3 card, and it's going to deal 2 damage to him.
Because I take damage, I'm going to get 1 Armor.
First is the attack. It kills that guy.
Now, my friendly minion took damage, so I'm supposed to get 1 Armor.
I got that on my guy.
Now, I have 3 Armor.
I did 2 damage to him, and I killed his minion. I also increased the attack of my character guy, so when he tries to attack me, it hurts him more. Every time he attacks one of my guys, I'm going to get that same benefit back of having some more armor. Now, what I need to look at is this. Any time this minion takes damage, summon a 1/1 imp. When I attack I need to kill that immediately. It has 4 health, so I need to attack it with something that has 4.
Shieldbearer is a 0 card that has taunt.
That one requires people to attack me, which s fantastic, so let's pull it out.
Now, I have the option to play two more 4 cards.
Let's play this one, Axe Flinger.
This is the part where it gets interesting because now, all of my cards have some crazy stuff going on.
I have Windfury on a couple of cards, and realistically this is probably the part where he is going to die.
I will attack this guy with his attack.
Now, I'm still alive.
He's dead. I got some more armor and more attack on guys. Now, I'm going to attack the other.
I have to move quickly because I'm being timed.
I barely had enough time on that turn courtesy of explaining how the game works, but that's fine.
Now, he only has two cards left. That's a bit of a problem for him. I have a taunt card played, and I have a card with divine stuff played. Therefore, he can't easily kill all of my guys. Now, he's drawing cards and taking damage.
He's trying to do what he can to save himself.
He says, "Well played." He may go ahead and blow himself up.
I want to put this guy out.
I guess there's really no reason not to play this card.
I just made a bit of a mistake.
Let's see, whenever this minion takes damage, deal 2 damage to the enemy hero, so now what I want to do is attack this guy and kill it.
This will also do 2 damage to the enemy hero.
Now, I want to attack the enemy hero with this guy too.
He's still down pretty low, and I can attack him again because I still have the Windfury thing going on.
It was unfortunate that I played that card without paying attention because I could have killed him and simply finished off the game.
Now, he's doing the thing which Warlocks can do, damaging himself and taking cards. He can only do that once each time.
Now, I have another card, Deal 1 damage to All minions.
I don't really want to use that.
What I want to do is kill this guy, and I'm very close to accomplishing that.
We'll attack him with this one also.
I'll go ahead and give myself some more armor.
Then I'll attack one more time.
Now, there's basically nothing he can do.
I'm going to tap end turn.
I have 15 armor plus my 22 health, and he has very little he can do.
He probably can't use his ability without killing himself. He can try and kill some of my cards, as he just did.
He can try and play some other stuff.
He got rid of that card.
Now, it's going to throw an ax and kill him because every time you damage the card, it kills you.
He did the same thing I did and said, oops, I made a mistake.
Anyway, congratulations we rocked the house.
Not a bad showing at all.
With every win you update your prize key.
How cool is that. Our prize key is up to 1.
We can continue playing, or we can stop playing.
When we get our prize key finished up, we get to unlock a prize. We'd go ahead and play another one, but I'm going to do that privately to get the prize key updated. Thanks for choosing VisiHow.
