- For the former card set, see Classic (2014-2021).
Classic format (or Classic) is one of Hearthstone's three game formats in Play mode, the others being Standard format and Wild format. Classic format restricts players to the 240 cards from the original Basic and Classic sets as they appeared on the 220.127.116.1132 patch of June 2014. No card changes, removals, or additions to those sets are in effect (aside from purely cosmetic changes), letting you play the game as it was when Hearthstone first officially launched.
Classic cards are mirrored in the Legacy set. Owning a Legacy card also gives you access to the Classic version.
Starting from Year of the Gryphon, Classic is used to refer to cards, game modes and adventures which are only available in Classic format. Classic format is the only format whose cards are completely unrelated to other formats in Play mode.
The symbol for Classic format is a swirl symbol formed from laurels.
Because some basic Hero Powers (like Totemic Call) may have been changed after Patch 18.104.22.16834, original versions of these Hero Powers have been created and used only in this format to keep themselves original as they are.
