Blizzard has just released three more card teasers for the upcoming Blackrock Mountain adventure mode, including some new Battlecry mechanics and spell interactions.

 

The original post is as follows:

 

The Molten Core is the seething, magma-filled heart of Blackrock Mountain, where long ago—in what is now widely considered to be a bad move—the Dark Iron dwarf Thaurissan summoned Ragnaros the Firelord into Azeroth. Ragnaros promptly incinerated Thaurissan’s kingdom and enslaved his people, which also had the convenient (if you’re a Firelord) side effect of creating the cozy (if you’re a fire elemental) volcano known as Blackrock Mountain. Now the searing volcanic caverns of Molten Core are patrolled by elemental minions eager to turn up the heat on any heroes foolish enough to invade the Firelord’s domain.

In Blackrock Mountain: A Hearthstone Adventure, heroes can challenge some of Molten Core’s most notorious elemental malcontents and recruit elemental minions into service for their own collections. Elementals are powerful beings closely linked to the power of the elemental plane they hail from, and when one of these beings is on your Hearthstone board, they’re sure to have a potent effect.

 

Friendly Fire

 

A Flamewaker is an ambitious sort of fire elemental. In addition to being helpful when you need to rouse a sleepy fire, Flamewakers tend to be tougher and smarter than their fellow elementals, and often possess some skill in the arcane arts. Fire is their weapon of choice, and you can count on turning their scouring flames to your service should you win a Flamewaker’s loyalty.

It turns out that elemental lords are fond of keeping pets. Unfortunately, when a magma giant thinks “cuddly,” he checks off a list that includes things like “giant,” “two-headed,” “fang-mawed,” and “made of living magma.” The only beings dwelling in the elemental plane of fire who match that description are the terrifying core hounds. While keeping one of these critters probably makes apartment hunting a chore, there’s no better four-legged friend to have when your back is up against the wall.

Imps are like roaches. If you see one, there are definitely more nearby, and they’re probably doing things like letting the air out of your tires, changing your computer’s background to something embarrassing, or ’plosioning. It’s even worse when they’re in a gang . . . or SUPER GREAT if they’re on your side.

If you think you can take the heat, rich rewards await you in the Molten Core when Blackrock Mountain: A Hearthstone Adventure arrives!

 

There are some interesting new mechanics and applications for these cards! What kind of decks will you be running them in?

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
