Disgusting: how much dust it costs to earn the 14,800 XP from the Darkmoon Faire achievements

Content of the article: "Disgusting: how much dust it costs to earn the 14,800 XP from the Darkmoon Faire achievements"

Hi hearthstone, it's your old pal /u/JamieFTW here again.

To add insult to our Reward Track injury, Blizzard has made it so that 14,800 XP is available to be earned from the Darkmoon Faire Achievements (from the main screen click/tap Journal > Achievements > Gameplay).

This XP is earned by completing 3 achievements per class at 1,100 XP each x 10 classes (11,000 XP total), and 3,800 XP from neutral achievements for a total of 14,800 XP.

BUT.. of course there is a catch. To earn this XP you have to use very specific cards. I've tallied up all the dust costs here so you can see just how high the bar is that Blizzard has set.

I have assumed:

  • You own none of the cards, and the cards we will craft are preferred to be from this set so we can use them in Standard.
  • You want to finish the achievements ASAP by using the maximum number of copies per deck.
  • You want to finish the achievements ASAP by not having to use less optimal (i.e. time wasting) "replacement" cards.
  • You are not willing to spend tens (hundreds?) of hours in Duels finding the cards in buckets and getting lucky in-game.

Trigger/spoiler warning: as usual in Hearthstone, Priest gets screwed the hardest of the classes – but we, the players, get screwed even harder.

Here is the complete list, with the results at the bottom:

We crafted one or more of these cards already for another achievement so we don't count the dust twice.)

Adding this all up, you will need 28 Common (1,120 dust), 14 Rare (1,400 dust), 20 Epic (8,000 dust), and 15 Legendary (24,000 dust) specific cards to complete all these achievements – for a whopping total of 34,520 dust.

You are really testing the patience of your customers here Blizzard. Not cool. Not cool at all.

Apologies if this has already been written up elsewhere, I only just realised this and I thought it might be useful for the community. Special thanks to) /u/SpookyGhostbear for saving me some typing.)
