The Hearthstone arena now only gives only Goblins Versus Gnomes packs as rewards.

I've noticed that I keep getting the same cards over and over. So I got curious:

How many collectible Goblins Versus Gnomes cards are there, and how many collectible Expert cards are there?

  • What do you mean under "base deck cards" in GvG ? – 666nordless666 Feb 3 '15 at 15:28
  • @666nordless666 I was hoping to get the number of possible collectible cards that I could get from a base pack and the number of possible collectible cards I could get from a GvG pack. It seems like the possibilities for GvG packs must be smaller. I actually got two of the same card in one GvG pack! – Jonathan Mee Feb 3 '15 at 15:33

    That frequently happens, in Expert as well as GvG packs. They're called Expert by the way, Basic are the truly free ones you can unlock by leveling heroes. – scenia Feb 3 '15 at 16:42

There are 505 collectible cards in Hearthstone. A breakdown of these by set is:

  • 382 Collectible cards in the Expert set.

  • 123 Collectible cards in Goblins vs Gnomes.

    Does "base set" include the Basic and Expert sets? You might want to break those down since the method of acquisition is different. – scenia Feb 3 '15 at 16:43

    I think when he means "collectable" he is excluding soul bound cards, seeing you do not need to collect them. – Shadow Z. Feb 3 '15 at 17:20

    @scenia Basic sets are not generally considered 'collectible'. – Waterseas Feb 3 '15 at 20:09

    You unlock the basic set by playing the class, if you haven't played it you don't get the basics... so it might be slightly 'collectable' – Lyrion Feb 4 '15 at 7:54

    By that logic, Naxxramas cards are also not collectible since they're statically unlocked by completing the Adventure and are soulbound. And the point stands that the "base set" is called "Expert". – scenia Feb 4 '15 at 10:18
