So I got a normal Deathwing in the 3rd card package I opened, and since I usually am like the unluckiest person when it comes to Blizzard games I asked myself what the chances of getting a legendary card are.

Is it compareable to the Dropchances of a certain Epic in let's say WoW (or 'insert Blizzard game' here) or is there even a special percentage per package? How many packages do you normally have to open to get one of these shiny orange cards?


According to what most people that opened a lot of packs said, there's quite a low chance of getting a legendary.

On average, people get 1 legendary per 20-25 packs. Some are less fortunate than that however.

  • I have opened 79 packs from 79 arenas and have only opened 1 legendary so far. It happens. – DiabloMonkey Jan 24 '14 at 19:58
  • I'm a newbie player - I've started playing only recently and I've opened perhaps 7 or so packs. I got 2 legendaries thus far. – Shaamaan Feb 3 '14 at 9:52
  • @Shaamaan Go play lottery! So far I only managed to get 1 epic card, no legenderies for me yet. I am jelly! – MaxBedlam Feb 3 '14 at 11:05
  • @ChrisHateZ No need to be. While one legendary is indeed good (Lord Jaraxxus) it's only useful for warlocks (and their class-specific cards kind of suck) while the other is so so on it's own (Baron Geddon). Getting a legendary on it's own is one thing. Getting the legendary you WANT or NEED is another thing altogether. Try THIS on for size... a GOLDEN legendary - meaning the guy can change the card to any other legendary of their choosing. – Shaamaan Feb 3 '14 at 13:12
  • it seems the chance has been doubled after open beta – Esqarrouth Feb 17 '14 at 20:28
