The first wing of the League of Explorers Hearthstone adventure is live for play now! Players can adventure their way through the first wing of the four-wing adventure, The Temple of Orsis, doing battle with Zinaar, Sun Raider Phaerix, and finally escaping from the temple in an all-new style of Hearthstone puzzle.

 

Blizzard is having a lot of fun with the new characters for the League:

Here is the official launch blog post:

 

Blizzard Icon The League of Explorers is Now Live!

 

The Temple of Orsis, the first wing of The League of Explorers, is now live in all regions!

 

Note: In order to access The League of Explorers once it goes live in your region, please restart your Hearthstone client. 

 

 

Pack your satchel, grab a torch, and put on your explorer’s hat, because your first expedition in The League of Explorers is taking you to the mysterious Temple of Orsis! You won’t be going alone, though! You’ll be joined by world famous explorer (and exceedingly modest hero) Reno Jackson.

 

Reno is quite the dashing adventurer, as he’s sure to inform you, but sometimes he gets a little confused about the difference between treasure hunter and archeologist. While his fingers can be a little sticky, Reno’s heart is in the right place. He’s out to prove that he deserves his place in the League of Explorers, with a little help from you.

 

It’ll take all of your combined cunning, wit, and above all else, restraint, to overcome the Temple’s trials and acquire the first piece of the staff for the League of Explorers!

 

Can you help Reno survive the Temple of Orsis? Find out!

Icy Veins has guides to the three new encounters this week, and will continue to refine and update these and release new ones as the wings of the adventure continue to unlock. They're available through our navigation system, and you can find them here:

      Reveals ontinue as Dog Thief unveils Animated Berserker, Pathra the Sanguine Reveler and Thijs Paladin's Howling Commander.
      Stay tuned for livestream card reveals later today! For more information about Knight of the Frozen Throne, visit our expansion guide. Let us know your thoughts about the new cards in the comments below!
      Paladin's Howling Commander
      Check out the full reveal video by Thijs here. The card goes well with Blood Knight and the new Bolvar Fireblood card that was revealed yesterday by Dave Kosak.

      Warlock's Sanguine Reveler
      The full reveal video can be found below here. Devilsaur Egg & Nerubian Egg have a new friend.

      Warrior's Animated Berserker
      Dog Thief revealed a new Warrior card today. It seems Enrage decks will be popular this expansion (looking at you Grommash Hellscream).

      Blizzard's Lead Mission Designer, Dave Kosak, has released a video discussing how Missions will work in Knights of the Frozen Throne.
      Missions are the replacement for Adventures, which everyone will be able to attempt when the new set is released. The idea behind them is to be able to explain the lore behind the cards, without forcing people to do the content who are not interested in it.
      There is a lot of interesting information in the video, but the key takeaway is that there will be an alternate Paladin Hero, Arthas, awarded to anyone who can defeat the Lich King with all nine classes.
      At the end of the video, three more cards are revealed from the upcoming expansion:

      Bolvar is an interesting card in that it will be a 3/7 after it loses its own Divine Shield. This means that it will need to get very little value from its ability in order to be very large indeed. It does feel like a build-around card however, and it might be that Divine Shield Paladin is just not as powerful as current archetypes. There are already plenty of ways to build that style of deck, and none are seeing regular play. I am not sure that Bolvar, Fireblood improves the Divine Shield archetype enough to force it to the forefront.

      Light's Sorrow has some of the same issues that Bolvar has, although it needs to get very few activations over the course of its lifetime to be a playable weapon. I expect this to be tested heavily in the first few days of the new meta.

      Corpsetaker seems like a fun card. It should be easy enough to gain most of the keywords, which will make it a very difficult card to deal with. It should be noted that the keywords are only gained if those words are on the cards remaining in the deck. Depending on how easy it turns out to be to get every keyword onto the card, this could be a reasonable card in slower decks where the Taunt and Lifesteal are relevant.

      The twenty-third and twenty-fourth cards have been revealed. Both are Epic minions, one for Hunter and one for Druid.
      At seven Mana, Stitches Archer, or Abominable Bowman Archer has to compete with Volcanosaur for the slot. It also seems that Savannah Highmane does the same thing more reliably.

      That being said, there are plenty of Deathrattle options available for N'Zoth, the Corruptor to bring back in Hunter now, and if a slow enough deck can be made to work, this would be a great fit in such a deck.
      Fatespinner
      Fatespinner introduces a new mechanic, which should add an element of intrigue to the game. The lack of disguised information has been a complaint of many players since the dawn of Hearthstone. Fatespinner takes a first step into that world, and if successful as a mechanic, it should add a new layer of complexity and bluff to the game.

      As for the card itself, it has poor stats for its Mana cost, and seems to not have the greatest of effects. However, this is Druid we are talking about, and Druid having the ability to deal 3 damage to all minions, albeit slowly, should not be treated lightly. Sherazin, Corpse Flower was underrated by reviewers in the previous set, and is somewhat similar in that it was hard to assess how much value would be gained from its ability. I feel that this card might see play for the first Deathrattle ability, but more importantly, the very existence of a new secret mechanic should be good for the game as the design team explore it further.

      Professor Putricide has been revealed by DDaHyoNi.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Bring it On!

      This card is quite the surprise, and the second in the set seemingly designed to punish spell-heavy/combo decks. Whether this is viable depends entirely on the meta at hand, of course, but there is intricate synergy at play here between Dirty Rat and Shield Slam; pull a minion out, thus avoiding the downside of reducing its cost, then slam it right in for a mighty 10 damage. Could it also be used to bait board swarms for an impending Brawl? I like it.
      Coldwraith

      Considering mages are very lacking in the 3-drop department, we may be looking at a new mage staple here, especially considering how popular Frostbolt and Primordial Glyph currently are. The revealed mage death knight card also seems to promote the use of Water Elemental, furthering your ability to get value out of the Freeze-related effect. Might Freeze mages even consider running this? Probably, since their game plan is all about... well, Freezing and drawing. Pretty cool card, if I may.

      Naiman_hs just revealed Voodoo Hexxer.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out on our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub.
      Voodoo Hexxer

      Water Elemental's big sister, Voodoo Hexxer is very likely to find a place in any control-oriented shaman deck. Along the new weapon, it seems like the shaman class is being pushed towards Freezing. Stat-wise, Voodoo Hexxer is not all that great for cost, but it fulfills its purpose: it's hard to remove, it'll stall decks that rely on swarming, and even works against weapons. In control matchups, Voodoo Hexxer becomes a form of pseudo removal, especially when coupled with the aforementioned weapon.
