Headliner’s Tour In-Game Event Guide – How To Unlock All The Rewards Quickly

A new event system was introduced in Hearthstone a while back. Instead of doing them through regular Quests (usually chained together), we have a separate event UI with its own rewards track, unique quests, and so on. It’s a huge upgrade compared to what we previously had – it’s significantly more intuitive now.

A new event has just launched. It’s called “Headliner’s Tour” and it lasts for 14 days (until March 28 at 10 AM PT / 19:00 CET). It means that you have plenty of time to complete enough tasks to get the rewards.

This is also the first event where you actually need to choose your rewards first before doing any Quests. There are three tracks that have different Quests and give you different packs and skin. Quests are easy to complete no matter which one you pick, and the pack type is not a big deal either, so you should most likely decide based on the skin you want. Once you commit, you can’t change your mind, so be sure to choose carefully. All of those skins will be purchasable after Patch 26.0 releases, so you can get the ones you missed, but most likely for real money, not for Gold.

No matter which rewards track you choose, I would recommend keeping the class packs until the expansion launch. This way they won’t contain any 2021 cards that are about to rate out and instead you might open some new Festival of Legends cards.

How To Unlock All Rewards

Quest Chain – Jam Kingdom

Quest Chain – Masters of Soul

Quest Chain – Legends of Rock

In order to unlock all 5 reward tiers, you need to get 1000 event XP, no matter which rewards track you choose. But how hard is that, exactly? How much do you need to play in order to do it?

The bulk of XP comes from Quest Chain you can see in the images above. The whole chain will give you 575 XP – which means that it will get you over half of the way through.

Keep in mind that you can’t finish the whole Quest chain on Day 1. You can only complete a single main Quest per day. New tasks unlock daily, so in the case of this event, the final quest will become available on Day 5 of the event if you finish them in time..

Another way to get event XP is Daily Event Quests. They are also quite easy to finish and each of them gives you 100 XP. You can reroll them once per day if you don’t like the one you got. Given that we’re only missing 425 XP, if you finish the main quest chain, you need to complete 9 extra Daily Quests throughout the entire event (not counting XP from just playing the game – more about that later). However, if you don’t like a particular step of the main Quest chain, you can just ignore it completely and just focus on the dailies. With a total of 700 XP from dailies over 14 days, it shouldn’t be a problem to get the rest of XP from playing the game.

And that’s it. The event can be completed by doing the whole main Quest Chain + a few daily Quests or even just Daily Quests and playing the game. The reason is that if you’re an active player, you’re very likely to get a few hundred XP by just playing the game. There is no official data on how much you get per game exactly, but it seems to be tied to match length. An average game of Traditional Hearthstone should give you about 5-6 XP, while an average match of Battlegrounds will net you roughly 15 XP. Of course, shorter/longer games can change those numbers!

Technically you can complete the whole event without even doing any of the Quests. Let’s say that you play Constructed – given the 5 XP per game average I gave above, it would take you 200 games over the course of 2 weeks to complete the event. That’s roughly 14 games per day – which is not THAT many, but definitely more than the average person plays.

All in all, I would say that an average player just completing the dailies, working on the main chain, and not grinding much should finish the event in roughly 5-6 days. But if you really, really want to get your rewards as soon as possible, you can just play A LOT of Hearthstone and potentially finish it quicker.
