Blizzard had a number of very exciting Hearthstone announcements at PAX East this morning, including a commitment to phone/mobile clients in the next couple of months and the all-new adventure, Blackrock Mountain.

 

A ton of information on Blackrock Mountain was unveiled, and information is available on the Hearthstone blog as well as the Card Sets section.

 

For starters, here is the Blackrock Mountain cinematic:

 

 

Eric Dodds described the adventure as you assisting Nefarian in taking on the agents of Ragnaros in an epic battle for control of the coveted Blackrock Mountain.

 

Blackrock Mountain will feature five wings of content and a total of 17 adventure encounters, as well as new class challenges.

 

A total of 31 new playable cards will be added to the game over the course of Blackrock Mountain's five week release window (beginning in April). Pre-orders for the Blackrock Mountain adventure begin March 19, and preordering includes a unique card back available exclusively for doing so.

The exclusive preorder card back.

 

The first wing will feature fights within the Grim Guzzler and the Blackrock Depths Arena, ending with an encounter against the Dark Iron Emperor.

 

Blackrock Mountain also introduces interactions with the Dragon minion type, including the exciting new anti-Legendary card, Rend Blackhand.

 

Will you preorder Blackrock Mountain for the specialty card back?

 

It's a battle of the bands as Nefarian and the Black Dragonflight take on Ragnaros and the Fiery Buddies in Blackrock Mountain, coming in April 2015.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
