Next Expansion Leaked: Rastakhan's Rumble

Recommended Posts

Just ahead of the BlizzCon unveiling, PC Gamer did a bit of a whoopsie and leaked the next expansion. Let's first get to the main info leaked: we're getting a new troll hero for each class, as well as legendary Loa minions! Rastakhan's Rumble is sure to have some more mechanics and a ton of cards, so we'll have to wait just a little more to get the full picture.

Meanwhile, the way the leak happened is a funny story in and of itself, as it seems an error in PC Gamer's article system posted two paragraphs from the site's announcement post inside an unrelated article (to make matters even sillier, it was an article about penises in survival game Scum) and, as you'd expect, it was immediately screenshotted and saved forever. Redditor JamieFTW got this image ready for when PC Gamer took the offending article down:

In case you don't want to lose your vision, the text reads :

Quote

Once every generation, Azeroth's Troll tribes come together to compete for the blessings of the Loa and the favor of King Rastakhan. The no-holds-barred battle forms the basis for Rastakhan's Rumble, the next Hearthstone expansion, which was just revealed today as part of the BlizzCon opening ceremony.

Nine teams will take part in the latest iteration of this time-honored Troll-down, each led by a Legendary Troll Champion representing one of the Hearthstone classes. The Loa, ancient spirits worshipped by the Trolls, will also take part in the fighting as Legendary minions. Shirvallah the Tiger is the Paladin Loa, which costs a cool 25-Mana to cast. You can reduce that outlay by casting spells, but even so it seems like a restrictive price for an effect that's probably only going to be good in incredibly slow control decks.

So, we're getting a very direct and timely link to Battle for Azeroth, which usually isn't the way Hearthstone expansions go, so this is an interesting first.

A bit odd that they're making this about Rastakan when it'll release very close to him dying?    Oh well, sounds "interesting" but the cards better have some incredibly OP (Read:Much better than the DKs) powers to justify such a crazy cost.

I'm not surprised. Though I will admit I thought it was a Vrykrul themed expansion. 

I Still can connect the Logo timeline Logo they made at the start of the year with the Exp :S

Yea, but when I first glanced the third card back the washed up green with paintings with a floorboard kind of look gave me the impression of a seafaring expansion. Nonetheless this looks to be fun! Hoping for some more PVE adventures

      Hunter's latest additions are two massive creepy-crawlies with powerful effects.
       
       
      Two new Saviors of Uldum cards have been revealed via the PlayHearthstone Instagram story. This time, it's a pair of massive creepy-crawlies for Hunter: Wild Bloodstinger and Scarlet Webweaver.

      Wild Bloodstinger is slightly over-statted as a 6 Mana 6/9, but it will have to do battle with a Minion from your opponent's hand before you get to use those stats. This kind of effect has been seen occasionally before in Hearthstone: Dirty Rat was a much-loved (and much-hated) combo disruption card that denied many a Raza the Chained before they rotated to Wild together. Unseen Saboteur is a similar option in the current Standard card pool, but can be wildly inconsistent.
      Scarlet Webweaver is pretty much a Dreampetal Florist for Beasts. You could play King Krush for 4 Mana and do some big damage. You could also play Tundra Rhino for 0 Mana and do some big damage. The possibilities are endless.
      Taken together, these cards suggest Hunter might be playing with some bigger beasts than usual in Saviors of Uldum. This could be a nice change of pace after six months of messing around with Springpaw and various other 1/1s.

      A new Druid Spell has been revealed on Firebat's Youtube channel - and it looks to have a lot of untapped potential.
       
      Firebat has shared his exclusive Saviors of Uldum card reveal on Youtube: Hidden Oasis!

      The card has huge synergy with the new Druid quest, Untapped Potential, and makes it look potentially very strong - the card can be played on turn 6 with both of its Choose One effects combined every time if you're willing to be patient.

      That's all of today's scheduled card reveals - the next one is slated for Sunday at 6.00 AM BST, although it's always possible that we get some surprise reveals in the interim. See you then!

      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
       
      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
      It's all about playing minions with Reborn, the new expansion keyword. Reborn Minions come back with 1 Health the first time they die, making them especially tough to get rid of (and great to copy with Emperor Wraps, the Quest reward.)
      Alongside Making Mummies we also got Murmy, a new 1 Mana 1/1 Murloc with Reborn.

       
      Seems like Paladin's identity in Saviors of Uldum is beginning to take shape: it's playing a lot of dudes with 1 Health, whether drawing them with Salhet's Pride, generating them with Sandwasp Queen, or resurrecting them with the Reborn keyword.
      Murmy has actually been teased already during a Reddit developer AMA. Asked if there were any cute cards forthcoming in Saviors of Uldum, designer Alec Dawson said:
      Alec Dawson (/u/HS_Alec)
      There are definitely a few in this expansion, especially if you like mummies! So there you have it. Murmy. Cute. In an undead, fish monster sort of way.
      (Also quite probably a terror in Murloc Shaman.)

      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.
       
      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.
      It's a new 2 Mana 2/1 Rare for Warlock. Here's Expired Merchant:

      This kind of targeted discard effect has been seen before on Shriek and Reckless Diretroll - it's a nice way of mitigating the randomness of the discard mechanic. In this case it can be used to duplicate one of your power cards. That could mean an extra copy of Mountain Giant, endless chains of Soulwardens and more.
      Pour one out for the Wild players though - one Bloodreaver Gul'dan was bad enough.

      Introducing Elise the Enlightened, Dinotamer Brann, Reno the Relicologist, and Sir Finley of the Sands.
       
      The Saviors of Uldum have arrived. We knew that we could expect to see new Legendary cards for Reno Jackson, Brann Bronzebeard, Elise Starseeker and Sir Finley Mrrgglton in the new expansion, but not what kind of effects they might have. Thankfully, the wait is over. All four were revealed today following a San Diego Comic-Con panel with Hearthstone game designer Dave Kosak and three League of Explorers voice actors: Terrence Stone (Sir Finley), Amy Walker (Elise Starseeker), and Carlos Larkin (Brann Bronzebeard).
      Introducing:
      Elise the Enlightened

       
      Dinotamer Brann

       
      Reno the Relicologist

       
      Sir Finley of the Sands

       
      These are the first "No Duplicates" synergy cards to be printed since Kazakus and his Kabal colleagues back in the Mean Streats of Gadgetzan in 2016, and are obviously inspired by the very first: Reno Jackson himself. They certainly pack some powerful effects, but will they be worth the deck-building condition? Only time will tell!
