The Hearthstone legendary cards you must craft ASAP

Whether you're new, returning or a long-time fan, these are the best legendaries to build

With last week's release of the Whispers of the Old Gods expansion and the introduction of standard mode, a lot of new players are checking out Hearthstone and old players who wandered aware are returning. Whatever your status, one cold truth of reality is shared by everyone: There are a lot of cards in Hearthstone, and it's hard to know which ones you really need.

In the smart video above, popular and talented Hearthstone streamer Kripparrian runs down his choices for the most must-have legendaries in the game right now. For his list, Kripparian splits the legendaries into three tiers of desirability. The best of the best are in tier one, the best class legendaries are in tier two, and strong but situational legendaries can be found in tier three. He stresses that legendaries in the classic set — that is, cards that will never rotate out of standard mode — are obviously the most valuable, assuming you intend to focus on playing standard.

We've provided a rundown of Kripp's full list below, but we strongly recommend watching the video to hear his smart explanations behind each choice. Let us know how your legendary collection is going in the comments!
