The fifth and final wing of Blackrock Mountain released today in Hearthstone. The Hidden Laboratory features four encounters themed after the Blackwing Descent raid instance in World of Warcraft, including your final battle with Nefarian after he fled from your last engagement.

 

Blizzard's blog post is included below:

 

You’ve shattered Blackrock Spire, and laid Blackwing Lair low. Nefarian has retreated to his inner sanctum to plot revenge. Don’t let up! The time has come to corner Blackwing and face the mad horrors he’s created in the fifth wing of Blackrock Mountain—the Hidden Laboratory!

 

A new wing of Blackrock Mountain unlocked each week for players to experience. The wings of Blackrock Mountain unlocked in the following order, and have finally culminated in a triumphant descent into the Hidden Laboratory:

The Hidden Laboratory is now live in the following regions:

Americas 

 

The Hidden Laboratory festers deep within Blackrock Mountain. It is Nefarian’s inner sanctum, and its chambers full of strange equipment and the best (worst?) of his mad experiments. Harden your heart against the horrors lurking within and watch your step, because who knows when the last time the floor was mopped? Blech.

Omnotron Defense System

The Omnotron Defense System was once a plaything of the Dark Iron dwarves left forgotten in Blackrock’s depths. Nefarian has taken to tinkering with them, and he’s adjusted his pet project’s “Murder” setting to 11. Deactivate the Defense system to plug two copies of the Volcanic Drake card into your collection!

Maloriak

Poor Maloriak. Turns out that Nefarian’s attempt to fuse the power of a dragonkin with the brilliant mind of an alchemist resulted in a stupid, incompetent, and disappointing minion. Despite his deficiencies (by admittedly unrealistic dragon standards), Maloriak’s crazed alchemical concoctions make him a most noxious foe. Mop up his vile swill to secure two copies of the Blackwing Corrupter card.

Atramedes

More mad experiments? It’s the Hidden Laboratory, so we don’t know what you were expecting, but yes. Atramedes was once a hapless Black Dragonwhelp, and Nefarian had him blinded with a toxic salve in a failed bid to give the dragon super-sight. Don’t feel too bad though, because he’s still superevil. See Atramedes into the grave to add two Drakonid Crusher cards to your Collection.

Nefarian

Nefarian, AKA Blackwing, AKA Lord Victor Nefarius, son of Deathwing and interim leader of the black dragonflight--need we say more? Cruel, plotting, evil, and snarky, this draconic menace is a true threat to all the mortal races of Azeroth. You’ve already beaten him once, but now he’s back bigger and badder (though a bit un-deader) than before. If you can overcome his sorcerous might one more time, you’ll earn the allegiance of two Dragonkin Sorcerer cards.

 

Overcome Nefarian and ALL of his friends/victims in the Hidden Laboratory to bend the mighty black dragon to your will, and add the Legendary Nefarian card to your collection!

The final Class Challenges will also become available to players who have defeated all of The Hidden Laboratory’s bosses on Normal difficulty. Class Challenges feature pre-built decks, and will put your skills with those specific classes to the test! The Lab has a challenge in store for Paladins. Paladins for whom Justice brings victory will earn two copies of the Solemn Vigil card.

 

For those of you looking for a more intense challenge, The Hidden Laboratory’s Heroic Mode becomes available after you’ve defeated all of the Lab’s bosses on Normal difficulty! Heroic bosses are significantly more difficult than their normal versions, so you might have to tailor a deck to achieve victory.

 

Experience the height of fun by following Blackwing’s descent to The Hidden Laboratory in Blackrock Mountain: A Hearthstone Adventure today!

 

This week features six powerful new cards, including FOUR Dragon-type minions!

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.

      There's a new update arriving in the coming weeks and it's going to bring a much requested feature to HS: completing quests while playing with your friends! The other big feature coming with this update is importing decklists, allowing you to easily copy and share your favorite decks without resorting to screenshots or outside sites! No specific ETA has been given and if you want to know all the details check out the announcement post below.
      Blizzard (source)
      Hearthstone’s upcoming update has a lot of cool stuff in it, but we wanted to call special attention to a couple of features that we’re particularly excited about. We think you’ll like them too!

      Friends Forever
      When the new Hearthstone update arrives, you’ll be able to complete quests in Friendly Challenges! Just issue a Friendly Challenge to someone on your Friends list and rack up credit for nearly any quest you can receive.
      Last year, the Friendly Feud allowed players to complete quests when they played with a friend. You gave us a ton of positive feedback about that event, and a lot of you asked us to have Friendly Feuds more often. We thought that was a good idea, so we took it a step further!
      There are some minor caveats. For example, any quests that can’t be completed as part of a Friendly Challenge aren’t eligible, such as those that require you to play vs The Innkeeper or watch a match. Most everything else is fair game though, so now you’ll have a reason to make friends with a recent opponent that isn’t just to send them a compliment.
      Sharing is Caring
      You’ll soon be able to easily copy and share decklists with Deck Importing! No more screen shotting decklists, or staring at a web page as you carefully build a deck, card by card. Trying—and sharing—a new decklist will be as simple as copy and paste!

      Here’s how it works:
      If your deck is already full, when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck in your collection, you’ll see a Copy button*. Press that button and your decklist will be copied to your clipboard. If you paste your decklist into a text document, it will look like this:
      Click to view sample decklist. See that conveniently highlighted ‘code’ near the bottom? That code also works on its own, making it easier to share a decklist with friends in chat or social media.
      Importing a decklist is easy. When you go to create the new deck, Hearthstone will “know” when you’ve got a valid decklist on your clipboard, so you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a new deck with the one you’ve got copied. Then you can watch your new deck be built before your eyes. You can also import decklists to Tavern Brawls!
      Don’t have all the cards a deck requires? No worries! In that case, it works just like a deck recipe. Any cards you don’t already own will appear insubstantial and you can select them for suggested replacements. You might also notice that your golden and non-golden cards now stack in decklists too!

      Deck Importing is great for finding and sharing new decks, but it’s also helpful for managing your library of decks. Save the code for decklists you rarely use, and when you’re ready to play one again, just copy and import it.
      The new update including these features will arrive in the coming weeks. We’re super excited about them, and we can’t wait to hear what you think! 
      * Desktop users can use ctrl+c to copy a decklist (you’ll get a confirmation when your copy is successful), then ctrl+v when viewing My Decks to import a decklist.
