Hearthstone: Entire Set Now Revealed on Facebook

Recommended Posts

20282-hearthstone-entire-set-now-reveale

Lead Designer Ben Brode, and well known caster, Frodan, played four games of Standard Hearthstone using Whispers of the Old Gods cards on stream today. The games were played live against Dean Ayala on Blizzard's official Twitch Channel.


During the games, many new cards were revealed, and after the stream the entire set was spoiled on Facebook. As well as seeing new cards revealed, we also got a look at Yogg-Saron in action for the first time. One thing that became immediately apparent is that many of the spells cast by Yogg-Saron cancel each other out. An Unleash the Hounds early in the chain of spells can be removed by board wipes, and it seems that players should allow for significant diminishing returns after the first few spells. 

The opinion of name players watching the stream seemed to be that Shaman is the big winner in Whispers of the Old Gods. As well as Hallazeal, Master of Evolution, and Thing from Below, which had already been spoiled. There were several new cards spoiled today that also appear to be powerful in the class. Players also felt that although it loses Mad Scientist, Freeze Mage will be one of the strongest decks at the start of the new meta. We will be able to test for ourselves in just a few days from now. The release is scheduled for April 26 on the Americas server, and April 27 on Europe and Asia.

Also of note in the set is a nod to 2014 World Champion, Firebat

Eternal sentinel seems striping when played on turn three after totem golem - a one mana spell such as earth shock or rockbiter weapon can be played as well.

Striping = strong oops

I believe there is an option to edit your comment. It should be in dark blue (bad design imo biggrin.png ) in the lower right corner of you comment, right next to MultiQuote.

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.
