Blizzard have been teasing the new expansion again, this time in the form of The Gadgetzan Gazette newspaper.

The first edition to be released was Volume 32 Number 7 and talks about the first unrobbable bank in Gadgetzan. The line "Citizens can see the new building for themselves when the First Bank of Gadgetzan opens to the public with a ribbon-cutting ceremony next week" is encouraging. Presumably this means we will get a reveal of the new set at BlizzCon.

Volume 37 Number 8 talks about Gadgetzan Port. Other than the ongoing themes of money, trade, and greed, the main point of interest from a Hearthstone point of view is the mention of "Secret dragon people". With lots of Dragon cards rotating out in the new year, it will be encouraging to fans of Dragons that they seem likely to be replenished in Gadgetzan.

Does no one pick on the mentioned red mana? Maybe a new mechanic? Or is this too far fetched?

Now that'd be interesting. Perhaps mana to be used on stolen spells/cards?

I would love if they add the possibility of playing hybrid (half-blood) classes... Like a pala-warrior, warlock-priest, mage-rogue, shaman-druid, would be awesome,  endless possibilities.

Very interesting. I do think it would be crazy OP for certain class combos though, especially if it was restricted to certain classes being with others. Imagine a Miracle-Tempo Mage Rogue deck. It would be unstoppable!

Did someone say 24 damage from Flamewaker on turn 3?

I would also love a thing that was suggested before TGT launch - specs. Different specs would have different hero powers, but still would be in the same class (meaning that it would have the same cards available). It's probably not gonna happen, but fingers crossed!

I'd guess that this may hint at them expanding the mechanic they used for Cho'Gall where you spend health ("red mana") instead of regular mana to play a card.  Maybe that paired with an increase in healing cards?

Maybe an overheal mechanic for heroes. This could make priest not trash and make heals better in standard, but it would destabilize wild meta, mainly by making freeze mage top quality 100% stainless steel.

      Blizzard surprised Europeans pleasantly by releasing the new expansion on Thursday, a few hours after the Americas release.
      Hearthstone latest expansion is now live in the Americas and in Europe. The patch, that added Kobolds & Catacombs to the live client, was released on Wednesday. The important part is that new cardbacks have been added, arena draft appearance rates have been adjusted and there are going to be daily login quests during the upcoming World Championship. Click below to view the patch notes:

      Improved reconnection and UI for Friendly Challenges. A new Match Paused pop-up will display a countdown while waiting for opponent to reconnect. When a player reconnects, the turn timer will restart. The Game Menu will now display ‘End Game’ instead of ‘Concede’ and clicking it will tie the match. Arena
      Arena draft appearance rates have been adjusted. Note: Non-Basic Neutral Classic minions represent the baseline for draft appearance rates. Basic/classic neutral minion: .5x Non-basic/classic neutral minion: 1x Most recent set neutral minion: 2x Basic class minion: 2x Basic class spell: 3.5x Non-basic/classic class minion: 2x Non-basic/classic class spell/weapon: 3.5x Most recent set class minion: 4x Most recent set class spell/weapon: 7x As part of our ongoing efforts to improve Class balance in the Arena, we are making small, periodic appearance rate adjustments to specific Arena cards.   Bug Fixes Fixed a crash that could occur when attempting to spectate without closing the Arena welcome message. Canceling Malfurion the Pestilent will no longer cause Armor to become invisible. Attacks with Lifesteal will no longer create excessive animations while Auchenai Soulpriest and Bolf Ramshield are on the board. Multi-target effects with Lifesteal now apply their healing as a single large heal, rather than individually. All Lifesteal effects now use the same, standardized, visual and sound effects. Combo effects can no longer target non-interactable minions such as Sherazin, Seed. Brann Bronzebeard will no longer grant double Lifesteal to Corpsetaker. Blingtron’s Battlecry will now trigger weapon Deathrattles when it occurs twice due to Brann Bronzebeard. Minions destroyed by Frostmourne will now be displayed on its enchantment banner. Losing durability from Sword of Justice will no longer sometimes cause Lifesteal to trigger. Deathstalker Rexxar’s Battlecry no longer benefits from effects on an equipped weapon, such as Poisonous or Lifesteal. Unwilling Sacrifice’s random targeting will no longer select an enemy Spellbender that has intercepted an Unwilling Sacrifice. Granting a Deathrattle to Scavenging Hyena, then playing Terrorscale Stalker on it will no longer give it +2/+1. Resolved a crash that could occur when playing a Quest spell that triggers Counterspell. Cards transformed by Golden Kobold will no longer sometimes be revealed to your opponent. The animation for Frost Nova will no longer play multiples times while Moorabi is on the board. Hovering over a Quest in progress as your turn starts will no longer cause cards that provide progress toward completing it to lose class specific border colors. Replacing a Cursed Blade with a Cursed Blade will no longer remove the ‘cursed’ animation on the Hero portrait. Application of the Bolster buff will no longer be slightly delayed on an eligible minion that was played last onto a full board. Joust and other card reveal effects will now function correctly if your deck contains 60 cards. Tavern Brawl
      Shiftcon: Minions with a Yellow glow will no longer retain it when they shift into a new minion. Tag Team: Resolved an issue that could cause the match to end prematurely when swapping Heroes. Decks Assemble: Resolved a crash that could occur when the turn ends while your opponent controls Jeeves. Mobile
      [Mobile] Fixed a bug where card tooltips would sometime appear at the edge of the screen and get cut off on mobile devices [Android] Region selection on Android tablets will no longer sometimes be blank. (source)
      Kobolds & Catacombs also has a launch trailer. And... it's... glorious!
      Our Kobolds & Catacombs hub contains all 135 revealed cards and everything you need to know about the novelties of this expansion, such as the Dungeon Runs or the new Class Legendary Weapons. At the moment, our guide writers should be hard at work preparing new deck guides. We might even have guides for the Dungeon Runs. Lastly, our Arena tier lists are up-to-date.
      At any case, you can track any updates in our Hearthstone changelog, but we'll probably make a news post about them. For now, you can read Aleco's excellent set review for Kobolds & Catacombs.
      Good luck with your pack openings and feel free to share any amazingly good or bad openings you've had! Also, best of luck to those who'll brave the ladder or to those of you who choose to delve into the Dungeon Runs!
