Is the Maw and Disorder Hearthstone Mini-set worth buying?
Today we analyze the Maw and Disorder Hearthstone miniset and which kind of players can find value in buying it.
The Hearthstone Maw and Disorder Mini-set has been out for a week now, and for those that are doubting buying it, today we will analyze its value. This is the first constructed product Hearthstone releases after the Runestones controversy, let's go over what it brings.
Hearthstone Mini-set: Cost and Value
Since their introduction in 2020, Hearthstone Mini-sets have been the same. A bundle of 35 unique cards was released a month after each expansion to shake things up. The Hearthstone cards players can buy included in the Mini-set have the following distribution:
- 4 Legendary cards
- 1 Epic card
- 14 Rare cards
- 16 Common cards
How much value is this? In terms of crafting the whole set, it's worth 10,000 Arcane Dust. If you would like to get the cards in packs, that would take you around 60 packs, which means 6000 in-game gold. This happens because Legendary cards' drop rate is 1 every 20 packs on average.
However, Hearthstone players can buy Mini-sets in bundles for 2000 gold or 1500 Runestones (worth $15, depending on your region). This offer gives you the best value in terms of acquiring resources, especially if you compare it to the other options. But is this enough to say that the Hearthstone Mini-set is worth buying? Well, not yet.
Do Maw and Disorder Hearthstone Mini-set Legendaries justify buying it?
Hearthstone Mini-sets' value highly depends on the legendary cards they include, and that is a key element to analyze if you want to buy them. In this case, the Legendaries are:

These legendaries account for 65% of the value of each Mini-set. Their success is the set's success. Hearthstone meta hasn't settled after the Mini-set release, so there isn't a concrete answer if these cards justify buying the Mini-set. Despite this, some indicators can help you make up your mind.
To begin with, Sylvanas and The Jailer are unique cards included in 15% or more of the current decks. That is a lot! Even if you take into consideration people playing them just for fun, numbers are high!
Moreover, think that these legendary cards will have almost 18 months in standard. Chances they become meta are high indeed, more considering we live in the 40-card deck era.
On top of these indicators, you should think about what those legendaries mean to you. Do you enjoy their playstyle and the decks that might be included? That would give you a reason to buy this Hearthstone Mini-set independently of the actual powerlevel of the cards.
So, we have thrown many "it depends" when trying to answer if the Hearthstone Mini-set is worth buying. Let's go over some more clear guidelines. Resource-wise, buying the Mini-set is a good move for almost any Hearthstone player. But there are some exceptions.
If you plan to buy the next Hearthstone expansion, then buying the Mini-set makes complete sense. I would even recommend you buy it with money instead of gold so you save up for buying packs from the next expansion.
Free-to-play Hearthstone players should think about how much gold they have before they jump into this Mini-set. If you have extra gold, you can consider buying it for 2000 gold coins. On the other hand, if your chests are empty, think if the legendaries apply to your decks before pushing the button.
Last case scenario, if you are a casual or returning player, I would recommend you hold your horses. Hearthstone Mini-sets aren't that impactful usually, so saving up for the next expansion might be your best move. Moreso considering that you will still be able to buy the Hearthstone Mini-set later if their legendaries became staples in the game.
I hope this analysis helps you make up your mind if you were about to buy the Maw and Disorder Hearthstone Mini-set. That's all for now, but stay tuned to Esports.gg for more Hearhtsotne news and updates. See you in court!
