Existing Amazon Prime members can connect their Twitch.tv account to their Amazon Prime account to get Tyrande straight away. Those who do not have an Amazon Prime account have until November 5 to sign up for a free 30-day trial here. The official guide to connecting the accounts and claiming Tyrande is available here.

Blue post content goes hereHigh Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind has been a fierce protector of her people for millennia. Her wisdom is legend—she has seen kingdoms rise and fall, and she has faced every threat to Azeroth for thousands of years. She is the chosen of the goddess Elune, and under her leadership the Night Elves have survived and prevailed throughout history. Whether defeating demonic incursions, managing difficult relationships, or providing wise council to Azeroth’s greatest leaders, Tyrande always knows the right play. (source)

The full release is available on Blizzard's official blog,

And that is exactly what blizzard wants :) they want your money but they don't provide support outside of their "selected" countries.

I'm an Iranian, I remember when the Mists of Pandaria expansion was about to release, obviously we all pre purchased the pack and were waiting for the release day. All of a sudden blizzard banned all accounts from Iran just 2 days before expansion (because of the stupid sanctions against Iran) And we didn't even get a refund.

We all paid blizzard money but didn't even have a chance to play the expansion. Cheers Blizz! Keep on with the stupid decisions.

I didn't expect this kind of stupidity here, but there's no "excuse" or anything by Blizzard to be made - they're legally forced to ban people from your country and you still complain over this. I can almost guarantee you that the decision for only supporting the 7 "economically most important" countries for this promotion has been made by Amazon as they probably don't want to deal with payment issues or whatsoever - I don't know. Khadgar only being available to iOS users was obviously also Apple's decision in their agreement over the promotion. However, bashing Blizzard is way cooler.

If banning us for a whole expansion had such important legal reasons, then why didn't they say so earlier? why did they wait so long and then ban us right before the expansion? Why didn't they prevent us from pre purchasing the expansion? Why didn't they give us a notice on the forums? Why didn't they answer our questions in the forums? 

No we didn't expect a refund, atleast either be polite and answer thousands of ppl asking you in the forums "why we're getting banned" or have the decency to reject our money if it's illegal.

Sure I'm stupid because I pay money to a company that prevents me from using their services. true.

I didn't know they never refunded the money - sorry for calling you stupid, but I'm pretty tired of reading a lot of incorrect information spread about this and people randomly bashing companies like Blizzard and Apple. In this case i.e. Amazon deserves the criticism and not Blizzard (like everything they post on social media right now is being hated on because of the whole Amazon promotion only being available to 7 countries which is understandable but then it should be directed at Twitch / Amazon).

i highly doubt that blizzard HAD to collaborate with twitch/amazon and CANNOT make this available through some other means for their other players. ie it was still a decision on their part that this promotion went through

Why?  Blizzard was involved in making the deal as well.  I'm assuming that Twitch & Amazon didn't steal the new hero and card back from Blizzard and then somehow hack into Hearthstone to implement it.

As for sanctions against Iran: it seems unfair to blame Blizzard for either the timing or the implementation.  That's a bigger political fish.  It does seem rather trite to label sanctions tied to an attempt to control nuclear weapon proliferation as "stupid", especially when they're directed at a regime that stoops to using child provocateurs to combat peaceful protesters.

I love the new hero - partly because it's available to me (Khadgar wasn't because I don't Apple), but mostly because I got a new card back.  I love collecting card backs.

In response to my view on this article as a priest leveler(my #3 future 60) to blizzard. I hate to say it but as much as I enjoy hearthstone I have to agree. Even though this method is preferred to the f-t-p ers(more or less), its still a bad one IMO. And yeah Amazon does have super restrictive methods of customer/seller limits.

But me IMO, I would have jumped to buy the hero at the usual $10....but the twitch prime(via Amazon) thing makes me wonder if its worth the hassle. Especially since today is the start of my 5 day(40 hour work week, with 2 days off). Its like major hassle in lieu of easy money judgement, and personally if it was up to me, I'd say for blizzard to sell it at that rate. And sure less have Khadgar skins for mage vs. Medivh skins but having Medivh's creates a win-win business situation for blizzard. Not much is to be gained in a company promotion.

Too many middle-men not enough profit. And it makes blizzard look bad, for the choice to begin with.(Granted I know that this isn't blizzard's fault for country limitation).

With that being said Im not certain if the trouble is worth it. But only time will tell. This is just constructive non attacking critique for the promo. Which I will say is kind of cool idea to say the least(The Tyrande hero).

(Update 10/2/16)

On 2nd thought it was not as daunting a task as it seems. Still think paying $10 dollars would have better overall but hey it was free....and will seek to try the new hero out later after 4ish. Since I got a priest usable quest.  (Must win 5 times one). BTW fyi no one has to download the Twitch launcher.

Don't think it was as difficult a task as it initially seemed but still hold onto my same opinion. Plus needed to put out notice that I will be trying new skin later. Without conveying anything off topic.

That's the only the only reason I went after the new Hero was for the Card back. Sure she looks good but that card back though.

Well, HS is a card-game right? So basically card backs are all that matter

      The big patch we were all expecting is finally live! It contains the removal of arena synergies, the new game mechanics update and the Hallow's End seasonal event.
      Firsly, the patch includes the changes to the sequence of triggers, which we have covered extensively in a separate article. A notable change is the removal of Arena synergy picks. That's not all, though: Vicious Fledgling will no longer appear in Arena, while appearance rate adjustments have been made to some cards.
      The patch also brings Nemsy Necrofizzle, the new Warlock hero, to the Hearthstone client. She is already available from October 17 and we will cover more about her in a next article!
      The October 2017 (Unholy Horror Knights) and November 2017 (Gone Fishing) Ranked Play Season card backs have been added to the client and you can view them below:

      The more exciting part of this patch is Hallow's End! This seasonal event will run for two weeks, from October 24 until November 6. According to Hearthpwn, during its first week we will get a free Whispers of the Old Gods pack and an Arena ticket. During its second week, we will get a free Knights of the Frozen Throne and an Arena ticket.
      The main hero portraits will have unique costumes (make sure to check them out on the Hearthpwn article linked above).  There will be a special Tavern Brawl with unique cards on the week of October 24. Moreover, during Hallow's End the Arena will have a dual class mode. You will choose a hero and then you will choose a hero power from a second hero. Then, you will be able to draft class cards from both heroes, as well as neutral cards. Bear in mind that any Arena run you have in progress will be automatically retired on October 24. You will receive rewards based on the number of your wins and a free Arena ticket.
      Lastly, Patch 9.2 contains various bug fixes. You can read the patch notes here.

      Starting from October 17, the new Warlock hero can be obtained from Fireside Gatherings.
      Her looks already betrayed that she's nothing like the evil Gul'dan, but now her voice emotes prove that Nemsy Necrofizzle is surprisingly cute for a Warlock!
      You can obtain the Gnome heroine by participating in a Fireside Brawl at an established Fireside Gathering Tavern. Pay attention to that last part: these places have already hosted 3 Fireside Gatherings in the past and have earned the Tavern banner. So, since a lot of Fireside Gatherings have popped up since Nemsy was announced, make sure you attend one in a proper Tavern!
      Blizzard Entertainment
      Beginning October 17, attend a Fireside Gathering Tavern near you and play in a Fireside Brawl to add Hearthstone’s newest Warlock Hero to your collection: Nemsy Necrofizzle!

      Don’t let Nemsy Necrofizzle’s small size and penchant for peaches fool you: behind those pigtails and goggles hides one of the most powerful Warlocks alive. Nemsy is utterly fearless, sharp as a razor, and she’s always cool under pressure. After all, you can’t command fel energies or summon horrifying demons from the twisting nether just by being nice. She’s your perky little pal—and a bonafide fel-flinging, soul-destroying mistress of dark forces!

      Nemsy loves it when her foes underestimate her. Appearances can be deceiving, and she knows that it’s what lies beneath the surface that counts.
       

      Join forces with Nemsy Necrofizzle and show your opponents just how adorable soul-devouring destruction can be! From October 17 onward, simply participate in a Fireside Brawl at an established Fireside Gatherings Tavern to add her to your collection.
      Find a Tavern
      Fireside Gatherings Taverns
      Fireside Gathering Innkeepers who have hosted at least one Fireside Gathering with checked-in guests can found a Tavern on the Fireside Gatherings website. Taverns have unique names and Tavern signs that perfectly embody the spirit of their communities. Taverns also persist between Gatherings, so they need your attendance and support to grow!
       

      If you’re wondering whether the Fireside Gathering you’re planning to attend is at an established Tavern, just check the event page! Each Tavern has a tavern sign associated with it, while other Fireside Gatherings use a Fireside Gatherings lantern instead.
      Learn More
      Fireside Brawls
      Fireside Brawls are special Tavern Brawls that can only be played at Fireside Gatherings! Each month there will be a different Fireside Brawl to try—check the Fireside Gatherings website to find out about the brawl that’s running this month.
      These special brawls run the whole month with no breaks, and they co-exist with the weekly Tavern Brawls. (source)

      The HCT Summer Championship took place from 13-15 October 2017. The top four players advanced to the World Championship in January.
      After three days of competition the winner was   Surrender, who joins Planet Odd teammate Hoej at the World Championship. Surrender won a tense final 3-2 against   Orange, with the final game being a Highlander Priest mirror. In that game, Orange chose to mill Surrender for five cards to attempt to burn the combo, but the attempt failed. The VoD of the final can be found here.
      Listed below are the other finishing positions, and the number of packs you will receive for picking each player as your champion in the "Choose your Champion" promotion.
      Finalists, 4 Packs: Surrender, Orange. 
      Semi-Finalists, 3 Packs: JasonZhou, Purple
      Quarter-Finalists, 2 Packs: Empanizado, OldBoy, Pavel, Tom60229
      All other players were worth 1 Pack.
      All of the decks from the event can be found on our new esports section here.

      For the first time, the Hearthstone World Champion won't be determined at BlizzCon.
      It was noticed that European venues weren't getting much love in this year's Hearthstone Championship Tour, but it turns out that the World Championship finals will take place in Amsterdam!
      HCT will finish its journey in the Beurs van Berlage Conference centre, lasting from Thursday 18th January 2018 until Sunday 21st January 2018.
      Anyone who physically attends the World Championship will get the following card back, while they will also be able to participate in on-site tournaments:

      The tournament's format will be the same as all other seasonal Hearthstone Championships. 16 players will fight for a total prize pool of $1,000,000 USD! Eight players have qualified so far from the Winter and Spring Championships: Ant, DocPwn, Fr0zen, Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, SamuelTsao and ShtanUdachi. Four more players will qualify from the Summer Championship, that is currently going on this weekend. And the last four players will be seeded from the highest HCT point earners from each region (Last Call slots).
      A question remains: without the World Championship this year, will there be any e-sports events at BlizzCon? According to its schedule, the answer is yes! There will be a Hearthstone Inn-vitational, where four teams of three Hearthstone personalities each will compete against each other in various formats; there is also the NA Tavern versus Tavern tournament.
