Hearthstone's second major expansion and fourth content update, The Grand Tournament, is officially live. You can now open your pre-purchase card packs, purchase additional card packs, craft TGT cards, and play with the new set!

 

Blizzard's official announcement:

 

Blizzard Icon The Grand Tournament - Now Available!

 

 

The Grand Tournament

 

Joyous fanfare fills the air of taverns everywhere today, which can only mean one thing—Hearthstone’s second expansion, The Grand Tournament, has arrived! Experience all The Grand Tournament has to offer: 132 new cards add a cavalry of noble knights, powerful steeds, potent spells, and more to your collection. A new keyword, Inspire, rallies minions to perform great acts of courage as they fight in your honor for a hard-earned victory!

 

A Festive Affair

 

In times past, the Argent Crusade created a tournament to find champions who possessed the strength and valor to face a most dire villain. Now, The Grand Tournament has become a place where knights from all over Azeroth gather to show off their skills in a playful combination of carnival and competition. It’s a kooky congregation of cavaliers—ogres, pirates, dragons, and even murlocs have sent their finest knights to prove their prowess—so the only thing that’s certain atthis tournament is that you’ll have a fun time!

 

 

Glory Awaits!

 

You’ll find a host of minions ready to follow your heroic example with the newInspire keyword. Each time you activate your Hero power, they’ll be inspired to perform a feat of strength. But the fight for glory doesn’t stop there! Prepare to stand ready and cheer your champions on as they joust, for when jousting minions win a contest, the victor gains a potent boon.

The Grand Tournament wouldn’t be complete without a brand new Hearthstone board! It features a colorful pavilion, a snack bar, carnival games, practice dummies a-plenty to keep your champions in fighting form, and of course, other surprises to find!

 

Highest Rank Bonus

 

Your efforts on the Ranked Play ladder will continue to serve as a testament to your valor—a Highest Rank Bonus awaits players at the end of the month that increases in value as you ascend in rank.

Each player’s Quest Log will display the highest rank they have reached during the month and recognize their accomplishment. Players who progress beyond rank 20 will receive a treasure chest containing an array of nifty little rewards as a way of congratulating them for their achievements. Eligible players will receive their treasure chest at the end of each season containing the season’s Ranked Play card back, one or more golden cards, and some extra Arcane Dust. What’s in the chest is determined by your highest rank over the course of the season. Note: your highest rank for the season was recorded beginning with Hearthstone Patch 3.0 that released on August 17.

 

Arena Rewards

 

Players will now have a chance to receive any of the current Hearthstone card packs (which include the Classic Hearthstone set, Goblins vs Gnomes, and The Grand Tournament) whenever a card pack is awarded, with a greater chance to receive The Grand Tournament card packs.

 

See what cards await you in The Grand Tournament on Hearthstone’s official Facebook page and follow the conversation using the hashtag #TGT!

 

The pennants are waving and the crowd is waiting. Charge in and experience Hearthstone’s second expansion, The Grand Tournament, today!

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
