Practice mode is one of the four game modes offered in Hearthstone.

In this mode, players can hone their abilities and test out new deck ideas against A.I. opponents of basic or expert skill levels, and unlock new playable heroes in the process. Expert skill setting is only available after all the heroes are unlocked.

Heroes may only level until 10 in this mode.
