I'm completely overjoyed and honored to announce that I'm joining Blizzard Entertainment as an Assistant Community Manager of Relationships for Hearthstone!

Blizzard's games, culture, and community are the reason I decided to follow my passions into the video game industry in the first place - and working at Blizzard has been a long-time dream of mine. Getting here has been the best kind of adventure and I've met some absolutely amazing people along the way. Thank you to everyone that has supported me, laughed with me, and been a friend. You're my people. :)

Before I went into my final interview, I rewatched this video that really resonates with me:



Someone pinch me. I'm dreaming, right?

I could not be happier to start a whole new chapter at Blizzard and be surrounded by people filled with the same passion and enthusiasm that inspire me! Here we go! (Source)

Replying to a question on Reddit, Daxxarri cleared up the current state of Community Managers.

There are several of us, but we tend to be somewhat specialized, and a lot of what we do ends up being behind the scenes or isn't attributable to a recognizable name, so you might recognize some of us more than others. I write a lot of the blogs that end up on the official site, and handle a bunch of other stuff. There's also Zeriyah, of course, Aratil, Avarius, Keganbe, JesseHill (a new CM who is focused on Fireside Gatherings!), and there are other members of the team who art things for us and don't have a public presence. And we're happy to be welcoming Molly to the team now as well! (source)

Daxxarri also cleared up how interactions with Reddit work. Something Ben Brode also recently commented on.

I post very occasionally, but you can be sure that more than one of us reads every major topic (and most of the minor threads too) that pass through this sub every day. I spend time reading /r/CompetitiveHS too. (Source)

We would like to congratulate Molly on her appointment to her dream job, and wish her all the best going forward.

I'm more amazed that her Twitch account name is Molly. I mean, that's impressive right there.

      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!
