And it's finally here! The latest additions to Hearthstone's ever expanding card library have hit the streets and you can start playing with them right now!

Blizzard LogoBlizzard

Hearthstone’s newest expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, is now available! The fragile truce between the city’s three crime families has been shattered, and now the rowdy Grimy Goons, the volatile Kabal, and the secretive Jade Lotus want you to choose sides! Fill your decks with 132 powerful new cards and take the fight to an all new game board in a rough-and-tumble turf war for the city of Gadgetzan.


Big City

Under Mayor Noggenfogger’s ambitious guidance, and with the help of some very questionable allies, Gadgetzan has blossomed from a sleepy little desert waystation into a full-blown, sprawling port city. Noggenfogger modernized and expanded, securing Gadgetzan’s place as a world-class capital of commerce. Despite its booming economy, Gadgetzan is no utopia—it’s got WAY more than its fair share of crime. From Grime Street to the docks, no part of town is safe from the power struggle that’s about to unfold.

Big Trouble

The crime families that helped transform Gadgetzan now rule the streets, but this burg isn’t big enough for all three of them. Now they’re aiming to push the competition out of town and claim Gadgetzan for themselves, and they want to recruit YOU to the cause!

Ready to get your hands dirty? Good! There are 132 all-new Hearthstone cards in Mean Streets of Gadgetzan up for grabs, including 9 new tri-class cards. Like the crime families that host them, these special neutral class minions break the rules, so each can be used by three different classes instead of just one. The Legendary boss of each crime family is also a tri-class card!

The Grimy Goons

These tough guys are an association of the Warriors, Hunters, and Paladins of Gadgetzan. When you spot a crossed pair of spiked clubs on a Grimy Goons tri-class card, backup is on the way. Mugging, extortion, robbery, and a long list of other strong-arm crimes are the delight of the Grimy Goons, a mob of toughs headed up by the two-headed ogre Don Han’Cho.

The Grimy Goons specialize in weapons smuggling, and a smart Goon always grabs a little something extra before a rumble. Many Grimy Goons cards buff the minions in your hand who are waiting to join the fray. With massive arsenals stashed all over the city, the Goons can go from a motley crew of two-bit thugs to an unstoppable army at the drop of a coin.

The Kabal

The Kabal’s symbol is a potion bottle, and you’ll be able to fit Kabal tri-class cards into Mage, Priest, and Warlock decks. Illegal magic and a mind-boggling array of potions are the specialty of the Kabal, outcast spellcasters loyal to the mysterious master alchemist Kazakus. If you’re willing to create decks that contain no duplicates, you’ll gain the aid of some of this faction’s most potent members. . . at the cost of some predictability.

Power at any price is the Kabal’s motto, and with a colorful assortment of literally crazed spellcasters at his command—and more joining the ranks every day—Kazakus’ Kabal is an erratic and highly volatile force in the city.

The Jade Lotus

You’ll recognize their tri-class cards by the stylized lotus flower symbol, and you’ll be able to slip them into Rogue, Druid, and Shaman decks. Directed in secret by Aya Blackpaw, the mysterious Jade Lotus crime family was the subject of much rumor and speculation amongst the delinquent denizens of the city, but the true power of the Jade Lotus is about to be unveiled.

They’ve harnessed ancient magic to unleash Jade Golems—living statues that become more and more powerful each time one is summoned. Aya Blackpaw has created an army of these golems for her devoted followers, and the Jade Lotus will soon show everyone in Gadgetzan what it is to face a truly unstoppable foe!

This Is Our Town, Scrub

Gadgetzan is a prize worth fighting for—and the royal rumble between kingpins of crime has just begun! It’s time to pick and side and join the fight, so let us know which family you’ll be signing on with for first using the #Gadgetzan hashtag. You can also find out what’s waiting for you down the dark alleys of Gadgetzan on our official Facebook gallery.

It's new blizzard bug( Waiting for fix on Europe.

Do you mean that it doesn't show up on EU server? If so, you will have to wait as the expansion hasn't been released here yet.

There is currently a known bug where tri-class cards are being opened at a much greater rate than other cards, resulting in some players opening, just as an example, 10+ of tri-class commons without completing the common set out of 60+ packs. 

Pack contents are determined when opened, so if you have some banked packs, do not fear. However, it seems best to not open packs right away until this issue is looked into a little more. 

The official Hearthstone Twitter posts confirm this is a bug and they are aware of it.

Unless you have an exact estimate? :)

I think ive become way too dependent on this sites decks...roughly when will the updates on the gadgetzan cards in the decks can be completed?

Our authors are working around the clock and are uploading new decks and updating the old ones as often as possible without the loss of quality. My estimate is 2-4 weeks, just like usual. Is there a specific deck you are interested in?

I think the aim of Sottle was to make sure that there was 1 of each deck to complete the initial quests with. There are now more updates trickling in and more decks!

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
