"Be Prepared" - Rogue Motto
How to get[edit | edit source]
Preparation can be obtained through Classic card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Golden Preparation can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of each Ranked season.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Like most rogue spells, Preparation's cost makes it ideal to prime a Combo card; for example, combined with Headcrack, both cards fulfill their respective potential. As a free spell used in combination with other spells, it is excellent for use with cards such as Violet Teacher and Gadgetzan Auctioneer, and in such decks is best saved for when one of these minions is on the board.
Fixed bugs[edit | edit source]
- Until Patch 22.214.171.12474 (WotOG patch), Preparation attached an enchantment to your hero, meaning that if you replaced your hero (such as by playing Lord Jaraxxus) the enchantment will be removed and lost. However, the enchantment can not be removed through Silences, such as by using Light's Champion on the Lord Jaraxxus hero, because it is explicitly set to be unsilenceable. (As of Patch 126.96.36.19933 (LoE patch), Light's Champion can no longer target the Lord Jaraxxus hero.)
- If you played Preparation, Summoning Stone then played a spell, you paid the Preparation-discounted cost but Summoning Stone summoned a minion according to the undiscounted cost. (Gazlowe also used the undiscounted cost to decide whether to trigger or not.) This bug was fixed in Patch 188.8.131.5274 (WotOG patch).
- Starting in Patch 184.108.40.20633 (LoE patch), if you played Preparation then a spell with Overload, you did not gain any Overload. In addition, Unbound Elementals would trigger as normal, but Tunnel Troggs would gain Attack only if played BEFORE the Preparation was. This bug was fixed in Patch 220.127.116.1156 (2015-12-04).
