Nine new Arena-only cards coming to Hearthstone

Recommended Posts

The audience at Blizzcon was responsible for selecting nine new Arena-only cards. Come find out what they chose!

Nine new cards will be coming to the Arena in an unannounced future update. Three cards were designed by for each of the nine classes, but a single winner for each class was chosen by audience applause at Blizzcon's recent Hearthstone Q&A.

These cards are not part of the upcoming Kobolds and Catacombs expansion and will not be collectible, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Though the cards have some very exciting effects, they were designed specifically for the Arena and would probably have disastrous effects on constructed formats.

The cards below that are boxed in red are the nine that will be coming to the Arena:

mage3r.jpg

priest3r.jpg

rogue3r.jpg

shaman 3r.jpg

warlock3r.jpg

These cards might receive some more testing and tune-ups before joining the Arena in the future, and it has not yet been confirmed what the rarity of these cards will be during the draft.

Unsurprisingly, the cards with most exciting effects were chosen by the Q&A audience every time. Let us know in the comment section which cards you would have cheered for!

Mage's new card is kind of shit which is ok, since mage historically one of the best classes for arena. I am concerned about Nature's Champion for druid though. I feel it's really overpowered at the moment. Also, did shaman really need another RNG aoe?

There is no RNG on that is there? It says to all minions, not spread

You are correct, he might have overlooked that. Playing it and then spending 10 mana on an empty board can be really powerful; but at the same time you're skipping your next turn (That is, unless they introduce more cards that have an overload mechanic i.e. "10 mana 10/10 costs 1 less for each overload") but that's definitely quite situational.

 

Then again, it's arena, there aren't many arena decks that can deal lethal with just 20 mana. Then again, it's not like all games will have the shaman sitting on 30 health on turn 10 in the first place. Definitely a very interesting card that may be decent depending on other available cards. If the opponent has deathrattle effects then this card becomes a lot less valuable, but it's not like you can build around something so situational.

      Watch any Hearthstone channel on Twitch between April 2 at 9:00 a.m. PT and April 4 at 8:00 p.m. PT for 2 hours to earn 1 Forged in the Barrens card pack! Watch for 2 more hours and you’ll receive another one! Twitch has updated how drops work on their end, and this is Hearthstone’s first time utilizing Twitch Drops since these changes were put into place. Here is what you need to know:
      You’ll now be able to see your watch time progress towards any given drop. You will no longer receive drop rewards automatically. You must instead claim the drop on the channel you’re watching or in the Drops Inventory menu on Twitch within the first 24 hours of earning it.  You will need to claim your first Twitch Drop reward BEFORE you can earn progress towards a second. Twitch users can now earn rewards before linking their Battle.net account to Twitch. Rewards will expire 7 days after they’ve been claimed if a Battle.net account has not been linked. After you’ve claimed a reward on Twitch, please make sure you’re logging into the region you’d like to receive the drop(s) on, as the first region you log into will be where we deliver your packs. It can take up to ~30 minutes to receive your reward(s) in game after claiming. You must link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts before you can receive a drop.
      Link Your Battle.net & Twitch Accounts
      You'll need to link your Twitch.tv and Battle.net accounts to receive Twitch Drops. Here's how:
      Log in or create an account on Twitch.tv. Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen. Navigate to the Connections tab of the Settings menu. Find the Battle.net section, then follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect. When connecting accounts, be sure that you're currently logged into the Battle.net account on which you'd like to receive your rewards. More Just Around the Corner
      We’ve got expansions, seasonal events, Battlegrounds updates, a new game mode, and so much more planned. On the roadmap below, you can see the massive amount of content we have coming this year! Click to open in a new window.
