If you're familiar with free-to-play games, you're also all too aware of the money-destroying schemes that, unfortunately, coincide.

After the release of Family Guy: Quest for Stuff, Clash of Clans, and many other titles have burned never-ending holes in our pockets, we believe there's no reason to have to give up your first-born child to play your favorite games. 

hearthstone, Blizzard's online card-playing game, is yet another free-to-play game that isn't actually all that free to play. However, both mastering the art of blazing through daily quests, and understanding the Arena rewards, will earn players some quick and easy in-game gold. 

Daily Quest Guide

Each day you open your hearthstone client, you'll be greeted with one daily quest. You will receive a daily quest every day, even if you do not log into the game, up to 4 times. After the 5th day, you will no longer receive any quests until you complete the 4 you have.  

These quests are completed in exchange for in-game gold, therefore eliminating the need to spend actual money on the game.

All available quests are listed below:

Arena Rewards List

The Arena is a high-risk high-reward feature of hearthstone. Players will have to draft a deck from scratch, picking 1 of 3 given card choices until you've made a full deck. You'll then be matched against other players of similar score as you climb through the ladder. 

Although entrance to the Arena costs 150 in-game gold, the rewards can potentially outweigh the cost. Since 1 card pack costs 100 gold, and one of your rewards will always be a card pack, you'll need to win at least 3 games to have a good chance to make back what you spent.
