hearthstone Mean Streets of Gadgetzan: A Taste of the Kabal

1 post in this topic


Blizzard have published a second lore article about one of the three gangs from Mean Streets of Gadgetzan. This time they focus on the Kabal.

One of the great things about the expansions in 2016 has been the increased focus on the lore behind the cards. This latest article is yet another example of that. The Kabal are represented in Hearthstone by the classes of Mage, Priest, and Warlock. The previous article discussed the Grimy Goons, represented by Hunter, Paladin, and Warrior. We can presume there will be a Jade Lotus article in the near future.

We of the Kabal embrace those unwelcome elsewhere. We are outcast Priests, Mages, and Warlocks whose methods are too EXTREME for our colleagues. All that hand-wringing over silly things like mutations, toxicity, and side effects. Those cowards lack vision! We are at our STRONGEST when our decks only have a SINGLE COPY of each card! We of the Kabal embrace power NO MATTER THE PRICE!

The above quote seems to imply that there will be many more cards along the lines of Reno Jackson, which will provide an interesting deck building challenge of balancing power versus consistency.


The Kabal are also big fans of their Potions. There are likely to be several cards that interact with Potion cards. We will be catching up on all revealed Kabal cards in a later article.

      Diablo’s 20th Anniversary will take place in the beginning of 2017 and it will be celebrated in all other Blizzard games. Let’s take a look at the special Diablo-themed Tavern Brawl planned for Hearthstone.
      During the release of the latest Hearthstone patch, a new Diabloesque card back was discovered. According to an article by Hearthpwn, where we found all this information, this card back is  tied to an upcoming Tavern Brawl called “[The] Dark Wanderer”.

      The chalk board, heroes, hero powers and some cards of minions, spells and secrets of this upcoming Brawl have been datamined and you can find them in the same Hearthpwn article. The two players will take on the roles of the Dark Wanderer and the Cow King, two figures we all recognise from Diablo II. Presumably, the card back will be rewarded after your first victory in the Brawl.
      We are expecting this new Tavern Brawl during the first weeks of January 2017 – just like the other Diablo celebrations in Blizzard games (most notably in World of Warcraft).
