You'll see that every card has a number of stars under it's name. The number of stars indicate level, also know as rarity.
The booster packs also states what could be included in them, but uses different names to refer to the levels.
1 Star = Common
2 Star = Uncommon
3 Star = Rare
4 Star = Epic
5 Star = Legendary

All of the HoC staff working for Gaia social has been laid off around 23rd of April, 2013.

The game itself will be shut down on the 17th of September, 2013. Everyone who has chaos cash left should get them converted back into Gaia cash shortly, if nothing happens please file a billing ticket.

It's been a fun and eventful time while it lasted, unfortunated features like upgrading, marketplace, and chat never had the time to be realised, I still think this game has great potential.

          Thank you for this! I just started playing today, and the FAQ links from the 'Help' section of the game wasn't working for me. These are so useful. Now I have a sliver of hope of getting a better understanding of HoC. c:
