Anyone preordering BRM? Also, has anyone figured out a good stats tracker to use? I need a more automated process than manually entering numbers in Excel to aggregate data on my gameplay.

I probably will - haven't spent money to date on Hearthstone and I've been playing a ton. They did a nice job on the first one and I'm not hoarding up 3500 gold again so I can save a few $$.

trackobot.com is what you're looking for. Low profile, tracks your games automatically, even tracks cards played by the opponent so you can define different deck types based on certain cards.

Got to Rank 1, five stars really late last night and promptly lost to a druid who played Coin + Wild Growth turn 1, Wild Growth turn 2, Innervate + Dr. Boom turn 3. so I'm two wins out from my first-ever Legend ranking. Hoping to knock it out tonight.

thanks, although I need to not go on a random 15-game losing streak from here

I've been playing arena off and on since open beta but only really started playing constructed a few months ago, so I've got a decent-ish collection. I basically have to budget my entire limited gaming time to Hearthstone to push for legend because it takes so many games, but it's been pretty fun.

Any ideas on what I should use my dust on?--I've yet to spend.

Thinking of getting Ragnaros.

all that said, you can always play face hunter for cheap and that's what I've used to climb the last 7-8 stars or so. seen quite a few rogues and midrange hunters over the last couple days which face matches up well with.

what class/deck you have in mind? You should probably craft Dr. Boom if you haven't already, but depends on what you want to play. Ragnaros is probably high up on the list too.

Yeah, Dr. Boom has been on the top of my list as well. At this point I only want to purchase neutral cards, mainly to help me finish my daily quests.

I've been a fan of mech-mage though.

definitely the good doctor then, he fits perfectly into mech mage. you could throw Rag in there too if you don't want to craft Antonidas after that.
