Blizzard announced in the patch notes that there was a special quest to obtain two golden copies of Transfer Student. We'll show you how to do it!
Quote From Blizzard
After a thorough examination of garments in our lost and found cupboard, Transfer Student has embarked on a laborious journey to find the perfect costume for the Masquerade Ball! We’ve identified an itinerary in the dormitory that outlines an intention to visit Dalaran, Uldum, Dragonblight, and the Black Temple. Scribbled on the back is mention of playing Rexxar’s tale in Hearthstone Book of Heroes, and at least one match in both Battlegrounds and Arena.
Retrace their steps and you’ll be rewarded with two golden copies of Transfer Student! Good luck!
Breaking Down the Clues - Obtaining Golden Transfer Students
Three of the clues are very easy to figure out, and they're the ones given to us last.
- Play a game in Battlegrounds.
- Play a game in Arena. (Hey, use your free run!)
- Play a game in Rexxar's Book of Heroes.
The rest of the clues related to regions. These are the different regions that are called out:
- Black Temple
What do these all have in common? They are all the locations of Hearthstone adventures, and recent ones at that! You'll need to play a game in the following adventures.
- Dalaran Heist
- Tombs of Terror
- Galakrond's Awakening
- Trial by Felfire
Luckily, we can cheat this a bit because you don't need to play through a full game only join the game and concede for each of the adventures. Hit up that story for some quick progression and enjoy your fancy cards.
It's important to know that for all 7 of these criteria, if you've been playing at any point since the Masquerade Ball started, you've already begun to earn credit. That's great news for those of us who played their dual-class Arena games as soon as the event started and no longer have an event ticket left.
Honestly not sure who was the first to figure this out, it's been spreading like wildfire in the community though so have some fun this weekend and get your freebies!
Free stuff is cool. Free stuff you can disenchant would be even better.
Thanks, works like a charm. And due to this quest, I refound my joy in Battlegrounds, thank you!
This is a bunch of crap. I did all these steps and didn't get them
Actually this reminded me how fun was Dalaran Heist and I ended doing whole run instead of just one game.
Is one game of Rexxar's book of heroes sufficient, or do you have to clear the whole adventure? I thought it was the latter, but this is saying otherwise.
Do we know for sure it won't be obtainable once the Masquerade Ball ends?
Playing one game should be enough. No confirmation if the cards will be unavailable after the event but personally wouldn't take the risk if you really want to get them.
For anyone wondering: no, you can't disenchant them..
LOOOOOK!!! New shinies.....
Does it matter? Are they still nondisenchantable?
they cant be desenchanted at al.
I got my shinies all thanks to this site.
Got 'em, thanks for the guide!
Just a tip for those doing this quest: You need to play Story Mode in Trial by Felfire, not the Prologue. It doesn't count. I know this for sure because it was the last thing I needed.
Thanks. That did the trick for me. You saved me a lot of frustration mate!
I only vaguely remembered that this was given out as sort of a treasure hunt. If it weren't for that forum post earlier this week I would've just missed this one.
I do like the idea though. Maybe if they are arranging another early card from the next expansion as a giveaway, they can explore the same idea again.
Sounds like a chore. I guess I'll do it on Sunday.
It's not that bad - I did it on NA, EU and Asia a few days ago after reading a forum post.
Just concede and enjoy the shinys :)
Sidenote: the golden animation looks like Transfer Student craps a paper plane at one point. So there's that.
id enjoy the shinys if we could dust them.
