Starting the new thread since the old one reached post cap.
07/18/2013 05:46 PMPosted by ThonIf a minion has Divine Shield, and gets Polymorphed...does the Sheep have divine shield? Or does divine shield go away because it's no longer in the card text?
Based one of your posts, I know that you can target Lord Jaraxxus, EREDAR LORD OF THE BURNING LEGION!!! with Sacrificial Pact (formerly Grimoire of Sacrifice), whether he is acting as a minion or a hero.
However, I am unclear as to what happens after he is targeted if he is in the Hero position. It is my assumption that either:
1) Jaraxxus is destroyed, and the player, no longer having a Hero, loses;
2) Jaraxxus is destroyed, and Gul'dan comes back with the same HP he had before summoning Jaraxxus; OR
3) Jaraxxus is destroyed, and Gul'dan comes back with the same HP Jaraxxus had before being destroyed.
I too am a bit confused by this response. So according to this, if I buff a minion's health, damage it, then silence it, it sounds as if it can't die from that silence. It also sounds as if if I took a 3/3 minion (unbuffed) and damage it for 2 damage and then silence it, it will still be at 1 health.
Am I take to from this that when I silence a health buff off a target, it maintains whatever health it had at the moment of the silence BUT if that's more than it's new maximum health that its health is now set to the new maximum health?
To give an example if I understand this clearly. Let's take Alexstraza, 8/8. Now let's buff her to 12/12 with Blessing of Kings. If I understand correctly, if she was dealt 2 damage, she'd be 12/10 with a max health of 12; if she were to be silenced, she'd become 8/8 with a max health of 8. Next, if she were buffed to 12/12 and took 5 damage, she'd be 12/7 with a max health of 12; if she were to be silenced, she'd become a 8/7 with a max health of 8. Is this understanding correct?
07/19/2013 03:12 AMPosted by KargenNot sure if this has been asked before, but is Animal Companion like the Shaman's hero power in that it cannot summon something that is already on the board (e.g. I have Misha in play, so is Misha no longer able to be summoned by Animal Companion)?
Here is the chain that I want to know if it happens with needing clarifications.
-I play Greater Heal
-Opponent has 5 cards equaling 10 Health restore (to opponent).
-Prophet Velen kicks in to double the HEALING to 20
-Auchenai Soulpriest kicks in now to make it 20 DAMAGE
***At this point, now that the HEALING as been converted to DAMAGE, does Prophet Velen kick in again to double the 20 DAMAGE to 40 DAMAGE?
This is a question, like some others, that boils down to which card has priority and also if a card such as Prophet Velen effect can be tapped twice in such a manor.
Interesting if yes, but understand if not. Further clarifications welcomed!
07/22/2013 07:50 AMPosted by BasylleSorry if I missed this somewhere else. If I cast Blessing of Wisdom on an enemy minion, who gets to draw when that minion attacks? I was wondering if this might be used offensively as a deterrent.
these Ask Zeriyah threads wouldn't comment cap so quickly if people just asked and waited for potential blue responses, instead of having long conversations about "what if it's this?" or "What if it's that?"...
post question, move on...eventually Zeriyah may answer it.
Here's an example:
Did you pursue working in the game industry from an early age? Or did you sort of fall into it through your pursuit of work in PR/marketing + your love of gaming?
I have a few questions, that I hope you will answer.
1. If I have a Imp Master on the battlefield with only 1 hp left and I play Commanding Shout. Does the Imp Master's ability still tricker at the end of my turn even that the Imp Master can't go below 1 hp.?
2. If you have 2 Pint-Sized Summoner on the battlefield, does their abilities stack?
Quick shaman question. If you have a totem out (like the healing one), you faceless manipulate it to get two and the original one dies then can it still be re-summoned or does the one that got faceless manipulated prevent it from getting re-summoned?
Also, if you brewmaster one into your hand, summon a new one and the re-summoned one (not the re-played one) dies then can you still get another back on the field of the same type with your hero power?
07/24/2013 04:46 PMPosted by badjarIf a minion with Overload is summoned by Alarm-O-Bot or similar means does the overload trigger? What if a minion with Divine Shield is hit with Snipe?
07/26/2013 11:20 PMPosted by KkmoirisAlso, let's say we have a Paladin. He has 1 health left. He plays Holy Wrath and draws a Molten Giant. Does Holy Wrath deal 20 damage because Molten Giant's original cost is 20 or does it deal 0 damage because Molten Giant now costs 0?
doomsayer + sylvanas windrunner
any minion with ancestral spirit
do deathrattle trigger as "fast" as battlecry affects and sylvanas would have no target or does ancestral spirit trigger before?
A few questions for you, plz.
1. Can I heal a minion or a hero with full hp?
2. If I already have a 6 minions on battlefield and play another one (like Murloc Tidehunter) who summon another one too.. what will happen?
08/01/2013 08:06 AMPosted by azj6Lets say I play a card that increases spell power. Does that spell power effect my spells or both mine and my opponent?
Draw a card and deal damage equal to its cost.
Do I have to choose the target before seeing which card was drawn?
Is there someone working on, or going to work on, a comprehensive rulebook, explaining how all the parts of Hearthstone function, and how they interact with each other?
I understand that such a document wouldn't be suitable for publication right now, since the rules are in flux, but I'm wondering if it's planned at all. I would hope that it is, since it's much better to be able to look up a rule and see if a particular combo works, instead of being forced to try it in a game.
And on a similar note, are there plans to have an FAQ for each card, either in the form of in-game tooltips or an online database? So, for example, someone can tell what Ysera's dream cards are, or that Arcane Missiles doesn't interact with Spell Power the same way most spells do, or that Jaraxxus interacts with secrets and triggers differently than most minions.
07/27/2013 09:53 AMPosted by ShrooomedHey Zeriyah, got to ask if it's possible to 'cheat' the arena hero-picking system; i.e. if you don't like the three heroes you are presented with, would force-quitting the game and reloading present you with the same choice, or a different one?
07/29/2013 02:34 PMPosted by LotusBloomZeriyah, I don't know if this got overlooked in the forums, so I am putting it here so I know there is a better chance for you to see it. The Illadin on the main page needs to be updated to the new Illadin. Just wanted to point that out, don't know if you have to talk to the page developers to fix it or what needs to be done. I know its not that big of a deal, but I just thought, for new people coming to the site, if they see the old Illadin, they might like his abililty, but will be disappointed when they see the new Illadin. Again, just pointing this out so it can be corrected, not a big deal at all. Thank you for your time and knowlege in these forums Zeriyah. You are a great help to us all.
08/01/2013 12:36 PMPosted by SounderOnce I've started an Arena deck, are non-Arena game modes locked out until I've finished the run? (I hope not -- a bunch of my playtime will be on the subway doing PVE.)
08/01/2013 01:50 PMPosted by Mand"at any time" does not include during a match, however, correct?
These are the kinds of rules clarifications I like. You have explained to us not just how certain interactions work, but the underlying concepts behind how the mechanics themselves work.
So is silence a removal or interrupt ability?
Should not silence prevent a player or minion from using abilities rather than remove buffs?
Is blessing of kings re-applied after the silence effect wears off?
Zeriyah: Plz, i been asking this questions since forever and no one ever answered me right... Will the game be divided by regions? For example, can i play with a guy from US(I'm from Brazil)... Becuz idk if you guys are going to split the game in regions... And plz answer, its not the first person that ask for it, and yet i got no answer... Even if you say: "Sorry we can't talk about this yet" I'll be happy but i can not stand stand here with the hope of an answer and do not gain anything D:
TL:DR: Servers will be separated?
08/09/2013 07:15 PMPosted by ZalajinCM Zeriyah: Will there be a beta test of the iPad client? Any details you can share with us?
I am not sure if that question was asked before, but there it goes:
Will it be possible to save duels, that i have played? And watch them afterwards?
08/11/2013 10:08 PMPosted by RabidwhaleZeriyah, were you taking the picture in the Hearthstone developers picture posted in the stare of the game post, or did they leave you out because they are mean?
Hello Zeriyah, I have a quick question. Will players have the option of adding notes to a player?
like.... (Zeriyah likes a low mana deck, charging minions) on the persons profile pic.
I always used it in poker, it helped me keep track of players that I run into a lot.
Zeriyah (if you have the time and courage :p) , can you write an article like the "Blizzard's Favorite Cards" one (or a smaller), about which classes Blizzard prefer ? i would like to see them talking about their preferences and mechanics, why they like them.
If you are too busy for it, may i ask what is your prefered gameplay style ? (summons tons of minions, casting spells, defensive play ?)
08/14/2013 10:03 AMPosted by ZalajinCM Zeriyah: Will Hearthstone have server down times for maintenance like other Blizzard games? If so will it correspond with the normal Tuesday maintenance times?
Is it still the plan to reset the constructed MMR ranking weekly?
Any chance we can get a big 'ol news article on how the constructed ranking/ladder/medal system and rewards work?
Thank ye very much.
