How to earn free Hearthstone packs with Twitch drops by watching the Death Knight Showmatch on November 16 – 17, now live!

Lich King Arthas walking through Northrend

You can earn up to two Hearthstone packs (one for Murder at Castle Nathria and another for the upcoming March of the Lich King expansion) by watching the Death Knight Showmatch on Twitch between November 16 and November 17! All you need to do is connect your Battle.net and Twitch accounts, and then watch the event for a total of one hour on each day. And because the showmatch is now live on Twitch, you can start earning packs immediately.

Sounds easy enough, right? Here’s everything you need to know to connect your Battle.net account to Twitch, as well as when and where to watch in order to earn Hearthstone Twitch Drops

How to connect your Twitch and Battle.net accounts

It’s an easy process that will only require logging into Twitch and then going to your Battle.net settings — but keep your Battle.net Authenticator in hand if you use one.

  1. Login to your Twitch account.
  2. Go to the Battle.net Connections pane. If you’re not already logged into your Battle.net account, you’ll be prompted to do so.
  3. Scroll until you find the Twitch option, and click +Connect.
  4. Follow the instructions.
  5. Watch the streams.

Twitch channels that have Drops active are labeled as such (there’s a “Drops Enabled” message near the stream categories). Also, you can keep track of your progress at the Drops Inventory page.

Once you finish watching for the required amount of time, a message will pop up telling you that your drop is ready to be claimed, and you must click it. Then, you’ll see the confirmation that you got it at the Drops Inventory page as well.

How to connect your YouTube and Battle.net accounts

Although there’s no YouTube event with Hearthstone drops at this moment, it’s a good idea to keep your accounts connected as well, because many Hearthstone esports events — which are broadcast on YouTube — also offer pack drops.

It’s as simple as the process for Twitch — but again, if you use a Battle.net Authenticator, keep it in hand.

  1. Login to your YouTube account. Keep in mind that only personal accounts are eligible to be linked with external apps, so if you’re using a brand account, you’re going to need to switch to a personal one.
  2. Click your icon on the top-right corner, and then go to Settings -> Connected Apps -> Account Sharing.
  3. On that panel, you should find the Battle.net icon. Link your Battle.net account from that icon — you might be prompted to check your Authenticator if you’re using that security measure, so have your phone ready.
  4. Watch the streams.

Keep in mind that after watching the events, packs can still take up to 48 hours to be granted to your Battle.net account. If you’re still having trouble getting your packs even after those 48 hours, refer to the official FAQ / Help page.

Where and when to watch the Death Knight Showmatch on Twitch and earn drops

The event, which will be cast by Hearthstone personalities Slysssa and Garrett, will be a preview of the Death Knight class, with players divided between three teams that represent each Death Knight rune:

Just tune in to the event on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel between November 16 and November 17 at 9 a.m. (PST). You’ll need to watch for:

  • Oone hour on November 16 to earn the Murder at Castle Nathria pack.
  • One hour on November 17 to earn the March of the Lich King pack.

Remember that time watching is cumulative, so you don’t need to watch it all in one sitting. Also, keep in mind that you’ll only be able to open your March of the Lich King pack once the expansion launches, in December. Happy watching, and enjoy your packs!
