Game Cards and Collections Through Playing
Much like the gameplay of Hearthstone and Magic the Gathering, you need smart tactics and efficient decision-making and cards that pack a wallop. However, unlike other card games that require real money to purchase decks, LoR just needs you to play to unlock cards.
Moreover, there are daily quests players can experience, weekly vaults to unlock, and choosing a region that you can decide to focus on. For more exciting news, LoR Design Director said in an interview that there is a vault day every week. The entire community of players can expect playable cards being showered to their inventory.
