Hello,

just wanted to let you guys know that I'm working on a site to keep track of the different promos for Hex. I always liked the "Magic Rarities"-section of the "Magic Libraries" site, so I thought I'd make and overview for Hex as well. Obviously there is not much content yet, but that should change when the game is released. I have a few idea's I want to implement as well, but all those depend on whether or not the data of those things is available or not (i.e. avg. auction house prices).

Please not that the site is not meant as a hex database, but pure as a helpful tool for collectors.

Anyway;
http://www.hexpromos.com/

If you have any questions or ideas, let me know.

Hi Kroan. The images referenced to 'Chest 'o Hex' and 'Princess Cory' are transposed.

Great idea! If this keeps up to date, once fully built, it will be a valuable resource.

Good job :) Haven't realised how long that list has grown up to be already; and we are pre-Alpha :eek:

One feature I'd like is being able to "check-off" which promos we've already got. Or ones we'd like to pursue next. Not sure about the logistics of programming that without resorting to full-on accounts though.

Ah this is a cool idea. I was thinking about adding something like this to Casual Hex, but now I don't have to :D

Just a thought, but maybe not just promos... There has been mention of PVE choices that will yield certain rewards and lock out others. A guide for cards that you can be locked out of in game, and the choices you have to make to get them, would be very helpful. That way people could compare the cards they would get and inform their decisions instead of making them blind.

Good idea for a site over-all though.

Too early for it me thinks but it's a great idea nevertheless; i feel that it will be implemented eventually by a dozen sites as soon as the dungeons are available

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback!

I added Mercenaries. I also canged the overview of the promo's to separate all promo types from each other. Otherwise it became a bit messy with the Mercenaries. I didn't add the other GenCon Mercenary yet, still have to find a decent picture. Also note that I don't know how the ingame representation of the Mercenaries will look like, so the image is just a placeholder... :)

Not sure about the logistics of programming that without resorting to full-on accounts though. Well, without accounts there is no way of checking them off and saving those checks between visits. I don't want to build a whole account system to be honest, but maybe I can do something with a facebook login. Something to keep in mind for the future for sure.

That way I like the idea, but think that this would be far more suited for something like a wiki or a site like wowhead (hexhead? :P). This site mainly focuses on promo's :)

I'm looking into domains. What do you guys make more sense? www.hexpromo.com or www.hexpromos.com

I'd probably go with hexpromos.com, personally.

Great idea for a site and should be very useful once Hex gets going.

I just added information to all categories describing how and when the promo's are given out and other interesting tidbits about that kind of promo. If you are missing any promo's, please email me at info@hexpromos.com or post in this topic!

I also fixed some minor layout stuff :)

Hello everyone,

With the extra time I had during the holidays I decided to redo the whole layout of the site. The new layout opens up the possibility for more options, which I plan to implement as we progress through the Hex Alpha and Beta.

I also included the 'Holidays' category, in which you will find the 'Night of Bells' card that was recently spoiled.

Good Job Kroan - I love the collector and promo angle of TCGs and pledged 2 collector tier to get a playset of the AA's - this site will be a useful resource for tracking and referencing. Is the equipment associated with the kickstarter pve exclusives also exclusive ? Or will equipment for those exclusive cards still drop from loot tables?
If the equipment is exclusive it would be nice to also include. The tiers get a surprisingly large amount of equipment when all added up.

Just a note, this site is still being maintained... Just that there has not yet been much new promo's announced... until today that is :)


Today it was announced that exclusive alternate art cards can be found in chests from boosters when the game launches. Next to alternate art they may contain other items as gold, mercenaries and even extra packs.

Together with this announcement we also got one the first alternate art cards from a chest; Hex Engine. I've added it to the database and you can find it within the new category "Chest drops".

It is yet unknown how rare these alternate art cards are, so may Kismet's favor shine down upon you when opening your chests!

Note that it also has the new card frame, where all other cards still have the old frame. We'll most likely have to wait until the card (or the art) is in the alpha client.
