The Shop is the in-game facility for purchasing new card packs and wings of adventures. Purchases may be made in gold or real money. The Shop can be accessed from the main menu, or the Open Packs screen.
Note that the in-game shop is different from the Battle.net online shop.
The Shop window[edit | edit source]
The shop is divided into three panes: Cards, Adventures, and Heroes. The current pane be toggled using the buttons at the bottom of the window.
Clicking outside the Shop window will return the player to the current screen.
Cards[edit | edit source]
The Cards pane allows players to buy card packs. The player can choose between all current Standard format sets. Once a card pack is purchased, the Shop will default to the last purchased card pack until the next time a new card set is released in the Shop.
For a full list of prices and purchasing options, see Purchasing card packs.
Adventure[edit | edit source]
The Adventure pane allows the player to purchase wings from the all current Standard format adventures. The sidebar lists the available adventures, while the main panel provides information and purchasing options, and displays a selection of included cards, as well as any pre-order rewards such as card backs.
Unlike the other items for sale, adventures are not available solely from the Shop - they can also be purchased through the Adventures screen. The Shop allows the player to purchase multi-wing bundles, while the Adventures screen only allows player to unlock one wing at a time.
Wild format adventures cannot be purchased from the Shop. However, players who have already unlocked at least one wing can purchase the others through the Adventures screen.
Heroes[edit | edit source]
The Heroes pane allows players to purchase certain alternate heroes. Each hero can be previewed, along with their card back and hero tray. The sidebar lists all available heroes, with those already purchased placed at the bottom.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Each tab and pane has its own music selection, fitting the related content. The Curse of Naxxramas tab features music from the adventure's selection screens, while Goblins vs Gnomes features three tracks not heard elsewhere in-game, taken from World of Warcraft's gnome starting area, just outside the gnome city of Gnomeregan. Goblin-like crowd noises can also be heard in the background. The Classic tab features the same music as the main menu screen.
