Hidden Quest for Golden Transfer Student – Here’s How to Unlock It!

Week 2 of Masquerade Ball (Hallow’s End) Event is here! On top of second chapter of Book of Heroes (Rexxar), Legendary Quest or a new, thematic Tavern Brawl, we now have a way to unlock a golden version of Transfer Student. The base card was given out to the playerbase for free when Scholomance Academy got announced back in July, however the golden copies weren’t available. Players couldn’t craft them or get them through any other means.

When the event was first announced, Blizzard has given an official clue as to how to get them. Here’s how it goes:

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!

The clues point to the previous single player adventures, the new Book of Heroes, as well as Battlegrounds and Arena. Here’s exactly what you have to do:

  • Play one game in Dalaran Heist solo adventure.
  • Play one game in Tombs of Terror solo adventure.
  • Play one game in Galakrond’s Awakening solo adventure.
  • Play one game in Trial by Felfire (Story mode, not Challenges!) solo adventure.
  • Play one game in Book of Heroes (Rexxar) solo adventure.
  • Play one game in Arena (no need for a full run, just one game).
  • Play one game in Battlegrounds.

The order doesn’t matter, you can play then in any way. You don’t need to finish every game – conceding is fine. We also aren’t 100% sure when the tracking has started, but it seems that if you have done any of the above since the beginning of the Hallow’s End event then it already counts. E.g. if you already played an Arena match right after the event started, you don’t need to do it again. So don’t be surprised if you get it earlier than you expected!

Enjoy your Golden Transfer Student!

    I only realized at the end that the quest was about travelling through boards.

    Thanks for this guide, appreciate it. Got the cards no problem. Just a quick remainder – these cards are uncraftable. I wanted to dust them but alas.

    So does this mean for example if I did a dalaran heist solo play 2 months ago it counts or I should just do it all again to be safe since the event started cuz ik I did all that already lol

      You have to have done at least one game in each (even conceding immediately) since the Hallow’s End event began. Seriously i just did it in five minutes (you should have already got a free Arena ticket for the event).

      2 months ago won’t count. Only the thing you did since the start of the event.

      But like Asperkraken said, conceding counts, so you can just start a game and concede immediately, that will count. Solo adventure stuff can be done in a few minutes.
