Earning Gold In HotS
When you first start playing Heroes of the Storm, you notice that gold doesn’t come as fast as you’d like. Which is a good thing, because it means you are finding things to look forward to in the game! I’ve listed below all the ways you can make gold in Heroes of the Storm. You can check them out, and then plan accordingly to up your cash (gold) flow! One thing I have learned is that it may seem like it takes a lot to farm gold at first, but if you keep playing, it won’t be as bad as you think.

It is random which Daily Quest you get each day, and you can hold up to 3 Daily Quests in HotS at a time. You can also complete more than one Daily Quest each day if you have more than one. Daily quests award various amounts of gold.
- Play two games with a hero from a specific game(Warcraft, Diablo, Starcraft) : 200g

- +50% Gold rewards from games (not dailies).
With the Eternal Conflict Diablo patch, Blizzard introduced special events. During the event, you got 100g each day for killing a treasure goblin. It was a special daily event quest that rewarded gold. There are almost certainly going to be more events, so keep an eye out for these bonus gold making opportunities.
