Frozen Throne Launch Changes

The pack changes ended up going up early in a recent patch! The Dreadsteed nerf has not yet happened.

No More Duplicate Legendaries in Packs

Every time you open a Legendary in a pack it will be one you do not already own (unless you own all of the Legendaries in that set). If you own a regular copy of a Legendary, you will not receive a golden copy in a pack.

No More 3 or More of the Same Card in a Pack

There were times when you might receive three or more copies of the same card in a pack. You can now only receive two copies of a single card in a pack.

Receive a Guaranteed Legendary in the First 10 Packs of a Set

If you have NEVER opened a pack from a particular set you will be guaranteed to receive a Legendary within the first 10 Packs. So once Knights of the Frozen Throne launches, if you had never opened a pack from Journey to Un’Goro, you will be guaranteed a Legendary in the first 10 packs you open.

Official Post about the Pack Changes

Dreadsteed is Receiving a Change/Nerf

A card coming to Frozen Throne called Defile is forcing a nerf to the beloved Dreadsteed. Defile and Dreadsteed would cause an infinite loop so Blizzard is changing Dreadsteed to read: “Deathrattle: At the end of your turn summon a Dreadsteed.”

Knights of the Frozen Throne Visual Card Guide & Spoilers List

There will be 135 new cards in the Frozen Throne expansion. Below you will find cards sorted by class and a visual look at what is still left to reveal. Keep in mind that the Neutral section only contains a fraction of the incoming cards to keep scrolling to a minimum.

Build-a-Beast allows Deathstalker Rexxar to stitch together a horrifying new Zombeast by ‘Discovering’ pieces of two former animal friends. The new creation combines all the stats of both creatures he’s sewn together; mana cost, attack, health, and card text. The beastly abomination is then added to Deathstalker Rexxar’s hand to later be unleashed on a hapless foe.

Frost Lich Jaina

Icy Touch allows you to Deal 1 Damage and if it kills a minion it will summon a Water Elemental!

Death’s Shadow adds a ‘Shadow Reflection’ to your hand and will copy any card you play that’s 5-mana cost or below. [Source]

Frozen Throne Missions

The Missions for the new expansion were announced in a live Q&A from Blizzard. From what we know they are Adventure Mode type single-player content that is free for all players. They will provide some backstory and flavor to the new expansion. I would expect maybe a few packs would be rewarded upon completion based on what Ben Brode said about the single-player content not too long ago:

“First, I’ll say that we’re not getting rid of Adventures – we’re gonna keep all the single-player missions, [and we’re] ramping up a team to do more and more of that starting next expansion. I think the storytelling and the challenge of single-player content in Hearthstone is pretty great. We’re gonna make them free so that players who are interested in the new set can just get in and start playing. We’re gonna give out packs of cards for playing that single-player content. So I think that’s cool.”


The Lich King is going to be a difficult fight that is different for each of the 9 classes. If you are able to defeat The Lich King with all 9 classes you will receive the new Paladin Hero Skin: Young Prince Arthas!

The Story of the Lich King

Here’s a good recap of all the lore behind the Lich King.

Wrath of the Lich King Trailer

Wrath of the Lich King was the second World of Warcraft expansion. Heroes traversed the frozen wastes of Northrend to defeat the Lich King.

Fall of the Lich King

When heroes in World of Warcraft took down the Lich King, one had to take his place. Someone you might have heard of actually: Bolvar Fordragon.

Expansion Leaks

It originally looked like we were going to get a leak free reveal from Blizzard! Just about every expansion has had leaks, ranging from a huge billboard being created pre-expansion reveal for Whispers of the Old Gods, to a voice actress having Journey to Un’Goro on their resume. This time images of the new expansion were found on the official Chinese Hearthstone website that has all but confirmed that the next expansion will be inspired by the Wrath of the Lich King expansion in World of Warcraft.


Looks like accidentally let loose with a scheduled post a little early.

Hearthstone players will be able to chill out with the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion coming in August. The new addition will bring 135 new cards to the game and will take place in Northrend with the Lich King himself as the final boss. New cards will include “terrifying bear sharks, ridiculous geists, indigenous Tuskarr ice fisherman and the addition of runic magic”.

Legendary Hero Cards will allow players to give any of the nine heroes the essence of undeath and to turn them into Death Knights. As expected, Death Knights have altered and modified abilities.

Players can take part in some of Knights of the Frozen Throne for free. The prologue, two wings with three bosses and a battle against the Lich King will all be available. Finishing the prologue will have players earn a random legendary Hero card. Each wing completed will also see players earn a card pack.

Preorders for the expansion will run $49.99 and comes complet with a bundle of 50 card packs and a special card back.

Knights of the Frozen Throne will be released in August. You can learn more on the Hearthstone site.
