Blackrock Mountain - The Dragons of Blackwing Lair

Recommended Posts

Blizzard just posted another preview of a batch of cards coming to Hearthstone in the next adventure mode release, Blackrock Mountain. The Blackwing Technician had been revealed previously, but two new cards - the Blackwing Corruptor and Dragon's Breath - have been showcased for the first time today!

 

If you think you’ve gotten out of trouble just because you’re a “safe” distance from the otherworldly elementals of Molten Core or the flame-tempered (and ill-tempered) dwarves of Blackrock Depths, think again! A host of black dragons lurk within the uppermost reaches of Blackrock, and their leader is perhaps the most ill-tempered of them all. . . .

The black dragon Nefarian, son of Deathwing, claims the upper reaches of Blackrock Mountain as his own. Ruthless and cunning, Nefarian built Blackwing Lair as a home for the black dragonflight and his various experiments. It was also here that he concocted the ultimate army of home-cooked chromatic dragons, perfect for thwarting Ragnaros and his fiery minions that lurked under the mountain (Nefarian’s favorite pastime).

 

Up To No Good

 

If you think shredders are the only things goblins like to tinker with, you are sadly mistaken. The green-skinned technicians within Blackwing Lair love to tinker with “organic chemistry,” creating volatile concoctions from dragon experiments that enhance their own nefarious powers. If you see a Blackwing Technician looking shady, be sure to take note: A dragon is near.

While the Technicians are busy dabbling with their dangerous dragon experiments, the Blackwing Corruptors are engrossed in harnessing and controlling the powers of dragons for their own dark deeds. These minions have seen “How to Train Your Dragonkin” at least 100 times. Their powers are also bolstered by their proximity to dragons, so stay on your toes!

There are a few rules when it comes to handling dragons, but the most important rule of all is this: Don’t stand in front of one—ever. Aside from a maw of sharp teeth to watch out for, dragon breath is incredibly good at reducing heroes to piles of ash. While it’s not minty fresh, Dragon’s Breath can be very powerful in the hands of a Mage on a minion-roasting rampage.

Are you ready to tackle the dangerous experimental dragonflight of Blackwing Lair? Don’t be “dragon” your feet for this one—prepare yourself for Hearthstone’s second exciting Adventure, Blackrock Mountain, coming soon!

 

What do you think of the new cards? Blackwing Corruptor looks like a poor man's Goblin Blastmage or a cheaper Fire Elemental, while Dragon's Breath has the potential to be immensely powerful in the Mage arsenal (since any minion dying would count!).

      Blizzard released the 17.2.2 client patch for Hearthstone to fix a bug related to the closed shop that occurred due to a missing runtime dependency.
      (Source)
      We’re currently in the process of deploying a 17.2.2 client patch that will address the following items:
      Fixed a bug that would cause a crash on mobile when clicking the eye to see who is spectating. Fixed a few various issues that would lock the game state when playing certain cards from hand. Fixed a bug where some players in Europe were only given the option of Warrior as their free deck after graduating the new player ranks. Fixed a bug where the shop would be closed when launching Hearthstone due to a missing runtime dependency. If the shop is still closed after updating to 17.2.2, try swapping to another region on the launcher and swapping back before opening Hearthstone again.
      The incorrect Mana display bug for mobile users will be fixed in the next update.

      Any updates on when the incorrect mana bug for mobile players will be fixed?
      Hey! This will be fixed in our next major update.

      A new blog post has been released, detailing a dozen card changes coming to the game on Monday 18th of May.
      Shaman is getting some much needed help, since three of its cards will be buffed - although it is debatable if these buffs will be enough to move the class out of the bottom.
      As far as the nerfs are concerned, two more Demon Hunter cards (who would have thought?) are getting toned down. Scavenger's Ingenuity, Shadowjeweler Hanar, Blackjack Stunner, Imprisoned Scrap Imp, Bloodboil Brute, Bloodsworn Mercenary are also getting tweaked.
      Nerfed cards will be eligible for a refund until June 1st.
      The patch also brings a bug fix for Ethereal Conjurer, which was causing the game to lock by not offering any Discover options. 
      Don't forget you can grab a free Nemsy until May 19, as part of Patch 17.2.0.
