Heroes of the Storm - Primal Flamesaber Promotion Extended
You've got a little bit longer to earn that Primal Flamesaber mount!

Our recent “For Azeroth!” in-game event that concluded on Tuesday, March 14, came to an end a few hours earlier than we told you it would. As a result, a number of players who were still racing to unlock their mounts weren’t able to finish the quest in time, and we’d like to make it up to you. We’ve decided to extend the quest by a few days so that everyone has time to complete their games and claim their rewards.


We’ve re-enabled the “For Azeroth!” event quest starting today, March 17, through Sunday, March 26. Any progress you earned prior to the quest’s original March 14 end-date will remain intact.

    Yeah - 15 hours of that pain was more than I was willing to put in to a mount. Got better results playing advanced AI, shorter - but got a no result on it.

    ~6 min per game against easy AI. And lots of fun playing with people just talking how bad is the experience of being forced to play that (not so very) bad DOTA

    Weird. It took me about 4 hours to get it done. I did it over the course of 4 days playing around 60 minutes each day. Maybe you should use a more logical and efficient approach when tackling these kinds of things.

    To get the mount you need to play 15 matches with a friend.
    At least one of the party members must be on your friend list (just add one person to friends). You must be playing a WoW character.
    The easiest way is to play against AI set to beginner. Get in team: Sylvanas (disables enemy buildings and units), Sgt. Hammer (long range, great against buildings, especially the core), Malfurion (heals + mana, go for innervate talents), Zagara / Xul / Nazeebo (summoning minions that can soak towers attack and help to kill enemy units).
    But honestly any comp will do the job. Just push one lane and ignore the rest. The best would be with camp next to it, so you can get support from it (ogres are great due to their rattack range).

    Yeah - that's around 15 hours of NFI ... that's my point, not all virtual items are worth spending real life angst getting

    There is no logic in the game ... as for efficiency, I went for the hardest AI possible to increase the rate at which the games were lost - because the beginner AI was taking a very long time to let us win.

    Anyway - as I mentioned, it is only a mount ....

    One that was interested in trying, they had more patience than I did and went on for the whole time over 3 weeks I think.

    Yeah, after the low AI matches took ages that's what I did.

    an HOUR per match against beginner AI???? How is that even possible? They should take 15-30 mins even if you're just derping around learning how to play. It forces you into a friggen tutorial when you first log into the game even to teach you how to do everything.

    And no result.. what does that even mean? The game didn't count for quest completion? Was your friend actually a bnet friend? Sounds like you were making it waaaay harder than it needed to be.

    Why is this mount even a time-limited event? Should just be a permanent promotion like the Hearthstone Mount.

    Well - the beginner AI does an awful lot to let you win and I had no clue at all what I was doing.

    No idea, it came back with no result and I wasn't given credit for a game towards the 15, and yes - I got credit with them for the first game.

    Half right, it was way harder than it needed to be... but wasn't me doing the making

    Lol, I did 6min Rush AI games with randoms from /1 general. Got my mount in under 2 hours.

    Anyone complaining about how hard the mount is to obtain is just bad.

    that is literally impossible, even with all beginner AI a match will end in abourt 20 mins, with all actual players it ends in 5-7
