Imagine I have 300 gold in Hearthstone. I have two choices on how to spend it:
- 2 Arena entries
- 3 boosters
If we ignore the time spent in the arena (both from a time spent and fun perspective) and focus only on the rewards, how many wins do I need to be able to get before arena becomes more profitable than buying boosters?
If you take a look at this answer, you’ll see the break even points for gold. I’m not considering dust or cards as part of breaking even since its hard to value those:
- You have the possibility of breaking even (100g for a booster + 50g back) after just 1 win.
- You will always break even after 5+ wins (though at 4 wins its very close to break even as well).
- After 7 wins, you will be playing the arena for free as you’ll get your entire gold entry fee back.
