Hearthstone Announces Deck Sharing Feature

The days of squinting at a screenshot of a friend’s deck and trying to build it yourself by hand are soon to be over now that Blizzard announced a new ‘deck sharing’ feature.

Once the feature is live, a new ‘Copy’ button will appear when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck in your collection. Clicking this button will copy your decklist to your clipboard, allowing you to send it to people or post it online.

When you’re building a deck of your own, Hearthstone will scan your clipboard and detect if you’ve got a decklist there. You’ll be able to import it (with gaps appearing for cards you don’t own) and then chop and change it as you please. Golden and non-golden cards will now stack in decklists also.

“Deck Importing is great for finding and sharing new decks, but it’s also helpful for managing your library of decks,” says Blizzard. “Save the code for decklists you rarely use, and when you’re ready to play one again, just copy and import it.”

Also coming with the deck sharing feature will be the ability to complete daily quests with friends, rather than having to go into the competitive ladder or play online.

“Just issue a Friendly Challenge to someone on your Friends list and rack up credit for nearly any quest you can receive,” Blizzard explains.

“There are some minor caveats. For example, any quests that can’t be completed as part of a Friendly Challenge aren’t eligible, such as those that require you to play vs The Innkeeper or watch a match.”

The deck sharing and Friendly Challenge features will arrive “in the coming weeks”.
