Journey to Un'Goro is Now Live

Recommended Posts


Journey to Un'Goro is now live in the Americas region, and Europe and Asia will follow soon after.

The expansion signals the start of The Year of the Mammoth, which means that cards from The Grand Tournament, League of Explorers, and Blackrock Mountain will no longer be legal in the Standard format. As always, all cards will be legal in Wild.

Six cards will also be entering the Hall of Fame, which effectively means they are being moved to Wild too. Those cards are Azure DrakeConcealIce LancePower OverwhelmingRagnaros the Firelord, and Sylvanas Windrunner. These changes, alongside the leaving expansions, and of course the 135 new cards, mean that the game will change a huge amount in the coming days!

Journey to Un'Goro also introduces two new major mechanics, Adapt, and Quests. Adapt gives a minion the ability to Discover an additional ability, while Quests give the player a mission, and then give a great reward for completing that mission. We have a guide to each of those mechanics, with lists of each option. The Quests guide is available here, while the Adapt guide can be found here.

As usual, we have decks available for opening day, and those will be maintained by L0rinda and Pesty for many hours a day over the coming days. The opportunity to test, and create new decks will mean that we will have a large amount of content being released, as the new meta-game begins to form. Keep checking back to our main Hearthstone page, as well as our Hearthstone Forums for updates, as well as to leave your feedback.

Happy New Year from the team, and may your packs all contain Legendaries.

55 packs... two legendaries. Glad I got lots of dust from the hall of fame (and literally 100+ duplicates, thanks RNG). Have to wait for the meta to shake out a little bit and craft a couple to make much of a deck.

Discard Zoo Lock, 10-0. Aggro is still king, especially while everyone is trying for force the slow quests into their decks.


Addition: just played another discard lock, he was so obsessed with his quest he discarded Lord Jaraxxus and Deathwing... Without Reno those are about the only "recovery" plays warlock has now. People need to stop forcing the quest so much.

Quest nzoth priest is excellent. I am 12-2 with it currently. The key is 2 mind controls and a Medivh for a super heavy late game. 

Just wait. U'll meet quest rogues soon =)

Rogue quest decks have taken up the "f--k you" mantle left by pirate warriors. Either you kill them before turn 6 or hope they get a bad draw or you lose. Its been less than a week and I'm already bored with the amount of quest rogue decks out there. Everything they need to win happens during their turn with nothing you can do about it. Then they kill you with charge minions. As an opponent to a questing rogue there's literally no decisions for you to make, there's no counter play. Its boring as hell.

      Blizzard released the 17.2.2 client patch for Hearthstone to fix a bug related to the closed shop that occurred due to a missing runtime dependency.
      We’re currently in the process of deploying a 17.2.2 client patch that will address the following items:
      Fixed a bug that would cause a crash on mobile when clicking the eye to see who is spectating. Fixed a few various issues that would lock the game state when playing certain cards from hand. Fixed a bug where some players in Europe were only given the option of Warrior as their free deck after graduating the new player ranks. Fixed a bug where the shop would be closed when launching Hearthstone due to a missing runtime dependency. If the shop is still closed after updating to 17.2.2, try swapping to another region on the launcher and swapping back before opening Hearthstone again.
      The incorrect Mana display bug for mobile users will be fixed in the next update.
      Any updates on when the incorrect mana bug for mobile players will be fixed?
      Hey! This will be fixed in our next major update.

      A new blog post has been released, detailing a dozen card changes coming to the game on Monday 18th of May.
      Shaman is getting some much needed help, since three of its cards will be buffed - although it is debatable if these buffs will be enough to move the class out of the bottom.
      As far as the nerfs are concerned, two more Demon Hunter cards (who would have thought?) are getting toned down. Scavenger's Ingenuity, Shadowjeweler Hanar, Blackjack Stunner, Imprisoned Scrap Imp, Bloodboil Brute, Bloodsworn Mercenary are also getting tweaked.
      Nerfed cards will be eligible for a refund until June 1st.
      The patch also brings a bug fix for Ethereal Conjurer, which was causing the game to lock by not offering any Discover options. 
      Don't forget you can grab a free Nemsy until May 19, as part of Patch 17.2.0.
