After yesterday’s teasers, we already pretty much knew what it’s going to be, but it’s still exciting to see it! Blizzard has just officially announced the new Hearthstone mini-set tied to the March of the Lich King expansion – Return to Naxxramas.
Return to Naxxramas will add 38 new cards – 4x Legendary, 1x Epic, 17x Rare and 16x Common. We’re getting 3 more cards right now, most likely to compensate for the fact that a new class was just released. Just like always, the cards will become available in expansion packs (in this case March of the Lich King packs), but you will also be able to purchase the entire mini-set either for 1500 Runestones ($15) or 2000 Gold. A full-Golden version is also available for 7000 Runestones ($70), or – for the first time – 10,000 Gold.
A short card reveals season will start today, we’ll know all the new cards by the end of this week (February 12).

As the Battle for Silvermoon rages on, a massive shadow blots out the sun. To their horror, the Blood Elves see a floating necropolis, Naxxramas, approaching their fair city. This evil entity is unnatural, but something about it feels familiar. They brace themselves and call for help. This is the March of the Lich King Mini-Set, Return to Naxxramas!
Return to Naxxramas, launching worldwide on February 14, consists of 38 new cards: 4 Legendary cards, 1 Epic card, 17 Rare cards, and 16 Common cards. Those new cards can either be opened in March of the Lich King Packs or purchased as a complete 72-card set.* Normal versions of the Mini-Set can be purchased in-game only, for 2000 Gold or 1500 Runestones. The all-Golden version can be purchased for $69.99 or, for the first time ever, 10,000 Gold. The Golden Mini-Set option also includes a bonus Diamond Legendary!
* Includes one copy of each Legendary card and two copies of each other card.
Naxxramas Holds Untold Monstrosities
Return to Naxxramas unlocks Death Knight’s full potential with the class’s first Location and Colossal cards! But the Lich King isn’t the only one getting support. The Mini-Set also includes all-new Dual-Type minion creations, advanced synergies, and a terrifying new way to win the game!
