Fractured in Alterac Valley will be the next Hearthstone expansion, continuing (and possibly ending) the storyline of Mercenaries that started earlier this year. This time, two of the factions will clash with each other, hopefully resulting in some real interesting story!
While there are still 3 weeks until expansion’s launch, we’re now entering a pretty interesting time period – reveal season. New cards from the set will be revealed by various websites, community figures, as well as Blizzard. Once a new card is revealed, I’ll try to post it both here on HSTD and our social media. I’m also doing daily compilations on social media, showcasing all the cards revealed on Day X. Those might come in handy if you missed some reveals and want to catch up.
Normally reveal seasons kick off with a longer reveal video on official YouTube channel, or even a reveal stream, but it looks like this time we’re getting straight to the reveals. The final reveal is on November 24 and it’s most likely the usual final reveal stream, during which they showcase most of the cards they didn’t throughout the season, and then post the final ones shortly after it ends.
Do keep in mind that not every card is revealed in English straight away. Some of them are only showcased in e.g. Russian or Chinese and I first need to find a proper translation. Wording on those might be awkward, and the art quality is often lower. Sometimes the effect itself is also wrong – I try to fix those as soon as I can, but mistakes do happen. I always switch to the official version once it’s out, but sometimes it takes a while – especially during a weekend (we often have to wait until Monday to get it).
Anyway, if you want to follow the reveal season with us, here’s a full schedule. Going to the link will show each reveal in your own time zone. You can also find who reveals each card by clicking on individual “teaser” images. Those teasers are very often intentionally vague or misleading – they usually show only a very small part of card’s art, sometimes making players think that something completely different is getting revealed. And that’s part of the fun – guessing what cards we might see before they’re out!
