To celebrate the conclusion of the Year of the Mammoth Blizzard is giving away card packs.
Sadly you won’t be able to just log into your account to claim a free pack and instead you’ll have to do daily quests to enter a sweepstakes style competition.
Starting today (1st February) at 19:00 CAT until the same time on 14th February each daily quest you complete will grant you an entry into the Quest for Packs Sweepstakes. Entries are limited to one per day (probably to prevent folks who have more than one quest saved up from getting an edge) and 14 entries per account.
What are you competing for? Cards and something a bit better than cards.
One person will walk away with a Grand Prize that includes 1 000 card packs for Journey to Un’goro, Knights of the Frozen Throne and Kobolds & Catacombs. That’s a total of 3 000 card packs.
In addition to enough cards to craft a golden set (probably) the winner will also receive the Lich King’s Helm.
“We found it in his desk after his internship ended. Now we’re passing it on to you! Yes, the very same helm worn by the Lich King as he stalked the halls of Blizzard Entertainment could be yours,” said Blizzard.
The Grand Prize winner will also receive a Hearthstone Apparel Gift Pack.
There are also 1 000 Mammoth Card Bundles up for grabs which contain 10 packs from Journey to Un’goro, Knights of the Frozen Throne and Kobolds & Catacombs totaling 30 packs.
This bundle will also be available to purchase once patch 10.2 goes live but players will only be able to purchase one bundle per account. There’s also no word on when exactly that patch will go live.
Finally 50 000 players that participate in the sweepstakes will recieve one pack from each expansion released during the Year of the Mammoth.
So if you were about to do your daily quest for today hold off until this evening so that you can get your first entry and a chance to win that sweet Lich King helm.
