How to Get Free Hearthstone Card Packs

The cost of assembling a competitive Hearthstone Card Collection can be intimidating for most players. There is no denying that those looking to take advantage of the free-to-play nature of Hearthstone are at a severe disadvantage compared to those spending money on the game. Fortunately, earning Free Hearthstone Card Packs is possible using both in-game and third-party options. This article will discuss several of the most effective ways to get free Hearthstone Card Packs.

Get Free Hearthstone Card Packs with In-game Quests

How to Get Free Hearthstone Packs

The most consistent means of earning free Hearthstone Card Packs is through in-game quests. Hearthstone offers a variety of in-game Quests, ranging from standard Daily Quests and Daily Victories to one-time Introductory and Promotional Quests. Occasionally, Seasonal Quests are available for limited periods of time. Players seeking free Hearthstone Card Packs should take full advantage of all of the in-game quests outlined below.

Daily Quests

Each day, all Hearthstone players receive a new quest that offers rewards for completing in-game tasks. These assignments range from winning games with specific classes to playing certain card types or game modes. For those looking for Free Hearthstone Card Packs, these quests are the main source of Gold and, as a result, card packs.

Daily quests typically award between 40-100 Gold or, in some cases, a Classic Card Pack. To maximize gold accumulation, you should reroll all 40 Gold Quests to seek more lucrative endeavors. You can have a maximum of three quests in your quest log at a time and quests can be rerolled once per day. Doing so will grant a new, randomly selected quest from one of the possible quests listed below.
