hearthstone Hearthstone: New Paladin Hero - Lady Liadrin

1 post in this topic


Most speculations indicated Lady Liadrin as the new Paladin Hero and they turned out to be correct. Let's learn more about the Blood Knight Matriarch!


Story in World of Warcraft




Lady Liadrin in World of Warcraft


Lady Liadrin started out as a Priestess and fought many battles along her fellow High Elves against the Trolls. However, after the wars against the Trolls, the kingdom of Quel'Thalas (the land belonging to the High Elves) was faced with its greatest adversary: the undead Scourge led by Prince Arthas Menethil. The Scourge was unbeatable and during the wars against it, the High Elves lost 90% of their population and they afterwards renamed themselves to Blood Elves. Arthas also destroyed the Sunwell, a magical fount that acted as an energy source for the Elves, leaving them with a severe magical addiction.


In despair at her people's losses against the undead, Liadrin decided to take up the sword and become a Paladin. Being a Paladin required for Liadrin (and the other Blood Elves) to believe in the Light, but their faith had been shaken after their annihilation by the Scourge. To counter this, the Blood Elves devised a very immoral plan. Their cunning Prince, Kael'thas Sunstrider, had captured M'uru. M'uru was a Naaru, a powerful godlike entity of Light. The Blood Elves decided to drain M'uru for its magic, so that they could counter their addiction and become more powerful. Lady Liadrin was one of the Blood Elves who accepted to participate in this and she became the leader of the blood elven Paladin order, the Blood Knights. To this date, Liadrin is still the Blood Knight Matriarch.


The Blood Knights are Lady Liadrin's loyal followers.


The Blood Elves were afterwards betrayed by Prince Kael'thas, who allied himself with the Burning Legion (the arch-villains of the Warcraft universe) and stole M'uru from Silvermoon, the capital city of the Blood Elves. Lady Liadrin went to Shattrath City to meet with A'dal, another Naaru, and ask for another source of power. It was then that A'dal showed Liadrin the error of her ways and she pledged  to fight against Kael'thas and the Burning Legion. Liadrin joined the Shattered Sun Offensive, an order especially formed to counter the Kael'thas - Burning Legion alliance.


Lady Liadrin, wearing the Shattered Sun tabard, is depicted in this card.


Meanwhile, Kael'thas had managed to summon the demon lord Kil'jaeden from the corrupted Sunwell. During the Sunwell Plateau raid, World of Wacraft players got to fight both against the corrupted M'uru and Kil'jaeden. After Kil'jaeden's defeat, Prophet Velen uses M'uru's uncorrupted heart to restore the Sunwell to its former state. Lady Liadrin is there to witness this and is relieved to finally see some hope for her people. Ever since, her faith in the Light has been restored and she has been a fierce adversary of the demons of the Burning Legion.


In Hearthstone



You will be able to acquire Lady Liadrin as a Paladin Hero via a World of Warcraft promotion. Specifically, you need to reach level 20 with any character in WoW. This isn't retroactive, so characters you already have and are above level 20 don't count (unless you leveled them after March 11). You can reach level 20 for free with a trial account, so you don’t actually have to buy the game or subscription time. Trial accounts have some setbacks – for example: no groups, no dungeon finder, no trading – but questing should be pretty fast and it can be done in a day or two.




Lady Liadrin comes with special hero power and introduction animations. Unfortunately, her hero power tokens are still Silver Hand Recruits and not Blood Knights or at least a blood elven reskin of the recruits. It’s also slightly surprising that her artwork depicts her with her hair down instead of her signature ponytail.





You can read the official blog post dedicated to Lady Liadrin here. A few months ago, Fullas Games had also proposed Liadrin as the new Paladin Hero.

      The new build adds 35 new dailies, buffs to Murlocs, bug fixes and preparations for future content!
      A new patch has hit the Hearthstone servers, preparing the ground for the upcoming Heroic Tavern Brawl and bringing new dailies, changes to Murloc cards, achievements and more!
      As we've already said, this build added some textures for the Heroic Tavern Brawl (which were datamined by Hearthpwn) and it also adds  the BlizzCon 2016 card back. Moreover, Murloc cards that affected ALL Murlocs now only affect friendly ones. There are also several bug fixes. Here are the patch notes:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      In this Hearthstone update, we're making balance changes to several cards and fixing several bugs. Read on for details!
      Ethereal Peddler now reads “Battlecry: If you’re holding any non-Rogue class cards, reduce their Cost by (2).” This was done to make it more clear, especially with upcoming releases. The following Murlocs that affected ALL Murlocs now only affect friendly ones, to improve the Murloc mirror-match. These cards are not eligible for a full dust refund. Grimscale Oracle now reads “Your other Murlocs have +1 Attack.” Coldlight Seer now reads “Battlecry: Give your other Murlocs +2 Health.” Murloc Tidecaller now reads “Whenever you summon a Murloc, gain +1 Attack.” Murloc Warleader now reads “Your other Murlocs have +2/+1.” One Night in Karazhan cards will now show up with the same frequency as other card sets in the Arena The following bugs have been squashed: Yogg-Saron, Hope’s End now properly applies the Overload effect when it casts a spell with Overload. Sir Finley Mrrgglton no longer offers Lesser Heal as an option of Hero Powers to Discover when played by Tyrande. Casting Entomb on a transformed minion will no longer reveal the minion’s identity if it gets drawn again. Gladiator’s Longbow now properly prevents damage caused by Explosive Trap. The following card back has been added: Welcome Inn – Acquired by attending BlizzCon 2016 or purchasing a Virtual Ticket for BlizzCon 2016. Many new daily quests have been added. For more information, including a more comprehensive list of bug fixes, please visit our Forums.
      (source) What are these new daily quests? Well, they were datamined (along with a lot of other stuff) by Hearthpwn. In total, the new dailies are around 35 in number! The 40 Gold ones involve playing 30 class cards for each class. There is a variety of new 50 Gold quests;  their concept involves around playing a specific amount of a particular archetype or kind of cards, like Play 20 Beasts, Play 10 Weapons or Play 15 Overload Minions. The 60 Gold quests require you to play 50 class cards. Lastly, there are two new 100 Gold quests: Murlocalypse - Play 75 Murlocs and Cry Havoc - Play 75 Battlecry minions.
      Other datamined data include three new achievements that award three Classic card packs each:
      Return of the Hero - Defeat the 3 challengers! Ready for Action - Play 30 cards in Play mode Back in the Game! - Deal 100 damage to enemy heroes There are also six achievements, awarding The Grand Tournament packs, that are tied to the BlizzCon promotion - we will discuss this in another article!
      Ultimately, a returning player challenge with three missions has appeared, as well as a possible Innkeeper challenge.

      So Blizzard gave us the opportunity to choose and root for a player during the HS World Championship 2016.
      You win in-game prizes for every win they get. Everyone gets a pack for just picking one of the contenders. 
      So who's your pick?

      ShiftCon has arrived for the second time in the Hearthstone tavern!
      It was announced yesterday that we wouldn't be getting the Heroic Tavern Brawl this week. The possible dates for it are either October 26 (next week) or November 2.
      Instead, we are getting a repeat brawl: ShiftCon. Your deck is filled with Shifter Zerus and some random class spells, while you start at 3 mana. This Tavern Brawl offers a good balance of skill and luck, since you have to decide if you should play your transformed Zerus at the given turn (if you can) or hold on to it.
      With the preparations for the Heroic Tavern Brawl underway, it was expected that we would be getting a repeat brawl this week. This is the 71th Tavern Brawl.
