Next Expansion Announced

Recommended Posts

The second expansion for The Year of the Mammoth has been announced, it is called Knights of the Frozen Throne, and revolves around the story of The Lich King from WoW.

The lore surrounding The Lich King was discussed at length in our post earlier today as a potential leak for the new expansion, and that is now confirmed.

The announcement, which took place at the start of the HCT Spring Championship, also revealed that there will be a new card type, called Hero Cards, and a new keyword, called Lifesteal.

The Hero cards will allow each Hero to become Death Knights.

The Death Knights will each have a Battlecry effect, provide some armor, and award a new Hero Power. Rexxar's for instance is the power to Build-A-Beast, which allows Rexxar to create a Zombeast card, made from two Beast cards. The new beast will contain the card text from each, and combine the stats of the initial two.

The new keyword is Lifesteal. A card with Lifesteal heals the Hero for the amount of damage that it deals to anything else.

It also seems that we are going to get the return of some regular mechanics. Cards being randomly generated, and a variant on the Reno Jackson theme can both be seen in the other two revealed cards.

We will get more card reveals starting on July 24th, and the expansion will be released in August. Pre Purchase is set at 50 packs for $49.99 and is already available.

The full round-up can be found on the official site, here. You can also check our our Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion hub for all the currently available information on the expansion.

I thought they were doing away with Adventures completely, but it sounds like there will be some free variant in this expansion. I've always enjoyed the boss fights in HS, so I look forward to those single-player "missions".

They are bringing it in so players can get a free Death Knight card. Which, in my opinion, they should have done with Un'Goro for the Quest cards.

Would be fun if Ancient Brewmaster and similar effects (Like Vanish) would allow enabling Prince Keleseth again.

I'm more than sure it will work like that. You can do it with cards like Reno Jackson and Kazakus so I don't see why it wouldn't work with this one.

A step toward control hunter is made, board clear, heal and a source of draw. IMO. We need more step to get a control hunter but.

(Damn, Stonetusk Boar will be a sick discovery option for the new hero power, as well as Giant Wasp and other stealth beasts )

Kaleseth looks very promising in zoo. Fire Fly can partially fill the hole in curve with no 2 mana cards and warlock can allow himself to just go for two one drops on turn two or go 1, 3, 3 with a coin. 

 

No undead tribal tag. Me is sad :(

I love Hunter and I love Control so I am excited about the possibilities. Oh, and I am also sad about the lack of Undead tribal tag. :( Maybe one day.......

Very interesting take on adding death knights to the game!

Agreed. Everyone class has their very own Lord Jaraxxus. I'm excited to see what the other classes get.

I hate changes.

You comment is a little vague. Are you saying you hate the changes being made to the game or you hate change itself?

Definitely. The rexxar example is making me very curious to see the others.

I just hope the shaman one is going to go the control direction and not more murloc/aggro stuff.

That's one way to push the meta away from aggro and toward control.

but... but... How can one don't want a death knight version of Morgl? (Yes, I know that there will be Thrall but can one dream?)

 

 

Just to shatter some dreams: Link

So it sounds like only the base heroes will get a death knight version. Bit weird to play Alleria, then turn into deathstalker Rexxar though.

Looking at that priest aoe, I wonder how that interacts with cards like auchenai. Is it another one of those infinite kill yourself kind of interactions?

  •  1 damage spirit lash
  •  Becomes heal self for 1
  • Which becomes damage self for 1
  • Which triggers another '1 damage dealt by spirit lash'? <- The crucial part
  • Meaning another heal self for 1
  • x30 & RIP

This was announced in the announcement for Year of the Mammoth. Adventures as we know them will be gone, but there will be free single player missions with each new expansion starting with this next one.

Agreed. I would have loved a free Quest. I don't even care which one. I want my free Legendary like they did with WoG too.

Interesting cards.  They all feel a little on the weak side though.  

Chillblade champion's stats are just too low for the mana cost, probably won't see any constructed play

 

Spirit Lash currently would probably not see any play, it is a much much worse Maelstrom Portal for the same cost.  If priest manages to get a good low cost spell power minion, it MIGHT be a 1 of tech inclusion, but I doubt it.  The effect is just far too weak and specific for it to see any sort of play.

 

The gravedigger seems really weak as well, a 1 health minion for 3 is terrible, however, if Stonehill Defender taught us anything, terrible stats don't necessarily mean a value card will be bad.  So it could be surprising, but I doubt it, Shifting Shade has far superior stats, even at a +1 increase to mana, and the "draw" effect is arguably more powerful, and it sees absolutely no play because of how weak it is.

 

Keleseth seems. . . different?  I find it hard to imagine a deck without 2 drops.  Maybe zoo? Would have to be a non discard one since clutch mother and librarian are both 2 drops and incredibly strong in it, as well as dire wolf alpha and knife juggler.  The one deck that it seems pretty good in is quest hunter, but that deck will still be terrible.  Almost every class has two mana cost cards that are just. . . superior to this.  Wild growth in druid, frost bolt/valet in mage, razormaw in hunter, evis in rogue, flame tongue in shaman, a decent chunk of the murlocs + equality in paladin, even priest has the elemental and shadow world pain, fiery win axe in warrior, some of the aforementioned zoo cards in warlock.  Plus quite a few more in most the classes.  +1/+1 just doesn't seem strong enough, especially when it only hits minions in your deck and he is a 2/2, which is a sub par play on turn 2.

 

As for the deathstalker, this one is hard to evaluate without seeing the rest of the set, and the hunter cards in particular, armor plus an AoE to your opponents board seems like a strong place to start for this sort of effect, but that hero power seems. . . awkward.  I mean, hunter has always had a pretty good game vs control, its been aggressive decks where they struggle, and the hero power seems terrible for dealing with that.  Plus the combine cost of the beasts will probably average to above 5, meaning your wasting ~8ish mana a turn to play a threat (where as Mr. J puts a 6/6 in play for just 2 which is pretty much going to do the same job at roughly the same rate even though a 6/6 will probably be worse on average, the threat a 6/6 provides is still high enough that it will end the game on the same sort of clock).  If the set has enough tools to make control hunter a thing, this could be good, but I don't really feel like it is strong enough or has the strength in the right places to do much by itself.  That being said, the effect is so bizzare that I hesitate to call it bad without playing with it, we only have to look at our good friend The Caverns Below to see the dangers in that.  But my intuition tells me that without quite a lot of support, deathstalker rexxar won't be competitive.

 

Edit: Spirit lash actually might see play since damaging your own minions has some serious synergy with northhire cleric, and say circle of healing.  Seems a little janky since it requires more then 2 cards to be good, but it might find its home in the miracle style lyra priest decks.

Excited to see new set as always, but I hope that anti-jade cards are coming in it.
I also hope that strong deathrattle cards are part of the set so I can empower my wild N'Zoth warlock
And finally, I hope we will all enjoy the new set and meta coming with it!

@demonardvark Sadly, even though DK will now be playable, it's apparently not a card class. Oh well.

At the first glance it is a 4 mana version of Bash restricted by enemy taunts or Kor'kron Elite that trade two stats for a minor effect and that looks very, very weak but there are potential for synergies with some kinds of buffs.  I think that if we will ever see a viable buff focused paladin than this card will see play in it.

well now we said if i get most of them right i win did we not?

dks playable - sort of, everyone can be a DK which of course why wouldn't you

new adventure- yup

new adventure going through ICC- yup

new card mechanic - yup

new legendary death knight ICC themed cards - to be seen but very likely

so it would appear to me, I was correct on all but one account, and even then I was only slightly off >:D

only concern I have is not for hearthstone but wow. Blizz copy writed "return of the lich king" now its very plausible that will be the name for one of the adventure wings, which I'm really hoping. If they try return of the lich king as the next wow expansion, I'm out XD

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Fire Mage Jaina

      Wanderer Rexxar

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Unique Tavern Brawls

New enemies and challenges await! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy

      Treasures from the Tomb!

      23 cards from across Hearthstone history have been unsealed from Wild and unleashed by the Headless Horseman! Until our next major update, these cards are stepping out of Wild and will be playable in Standard matches. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action.
      These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection.

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
