Un’Goro Crater Lore

If you have never played World of Warcraft, or it’s been a long time since you’ve visited Azeroth then let me help explain to you a bit about the zone.

Un’Goro Crater is a large lush jungle that hosts some unusual wildlife, including and most famously… DINOSAURS. This includes Devilsaurs (basically King Krush), Raptors (basically Bloodfen Raptor), Diemetradons, Stegodons (Stegosaurus) and more! Silithid, which are another group of creatures that reside in Un’Goro Crater, inhabit The Slithering Scar and have been seen in the form of the Silithid Swarmer.

Other creatures include Bloodpetals, Elementals, Gorillas, Oozes, Tar Beasts, and Golems!

So what can we expect from a Hearthstone expansion set in this crazy place? I would imagine a focus on Beasts/Dinosaurs, which should make any Hunter and maybe Druid players excited. Other than that, it would be hard to know because the Hearthstone team likes to spin their own flavor onto these expansions and take them in different directions.

Journey to Un’Goro Leaks/Teasers

Jumping into the Crater

Ben Brode tweeted another clue, showing a World of Warcraft character about to take a leap into the Un’Goro Crater!

Ben Brode Goes to the Jungle

Ben Brode tweeted about making a video on Monday, which in itself wasn’t really news, but the following day he tweeted a picture of himself in-front of a Jungle like area that all but confirmed that we’d be getting the announcement of Un’Goro soon.

Year of the Mammoth Reveal

The Year of the Mammoth was recently revealed and a slew of new information was released along with it. One of the interesting updates was the announcement that there would now be three expansions instead of two expansions and an adventure during the year. Along with this announcement came an image that pretty much confirming a jungle like expansion, and also gave slight clues to the following expansion.

Expansion Name Leaked by Voice Actor

Everyone knew an expansion was coming, but generally we don’t know what lies ahead until we start to see some teasers. This, however, was an unusual circumstance where a Redditor (content and username were deleted, but the comments remain) found a voice actor’s resume that not only contained the name “Lost Secrets of Un’Goro” but also the names of the cards that they voiced: Golakka Crawler, Pteradactyl, Anklesaur, Hydra, and Brontosaurus.

Turns out that Lost Secrets of Un’Goro wasn’t the finalized name as it eventually was changed to Journey to Un’Goro.

    Why not use “Plant” as a new tribe as well?

    Nice work. It’s great. But. Isn’t shadow rager also an elemental? Just asking isn’t sure. It isn’t in the elemental list, but still pretty damn nice.

    • Evident - Author
      March 31, 2017 at 4:55 pm

      He’s an Elemental, but for some reason they didn’t add the tag to him. They went with the 18 listed above.

    Just a quick question for the adapt options. When is flaming claws ever going to be taken over poinsonous spit? It just seems to me that poisonous (instant kill) is far better than +3 attack.

    I noticed it’s missing the Glacial Shard Card a neutral Common minion, and The Raptor Token in the Hunter section

    From which source do you take the exact information about the Update time?

    • Evident - Author
      March 21, 2017 at 7:26 am

      I just base it off of Blizzard’s time which is generally considered to be PDT. I might be confused by what this question is asking.

    Great work Man!

    To help you, I have to say that you added volcano spell into the warrior section.

    You forgot Lightspawn in your list of elementals.

    • Evident - Author

      I was only really intending to list ones that have been confirmed. I changed it a bit to clear it up hopefully.

    I’ll be happy if this expansion nerfs the aggro meta to hell. I hate the aggro meta. HATE IT! There’s no skill, and counters other decks that are more late game. It has removed late game strategy. The only way late game strategy is viable is with a total control deck that is hellbent on keeping the board clear.

      I’m glad someone is excited for the day when half the ladder is playing Jade Druid and the other half is playing Midrange Jade Shaman. 🙂

    March 5, 2017 at 1:04 pm

    I wonder if Shifting Shade and Lightspawn will count as elementals. I’m not a WoW player so I don’t know the lore around elements whether they are strictly the 4 elements or include Light/Dark, etc.

    • Roque
      March 16, 2017 at 6:31 pm

      ragnaros lightlord is an elemental, so lightspawn and the shades will likely be so

  14. Tazz
    February 28, 2017 at 9:49 am

    Evident, you forgot to mention Ice Elemental in the elemental cards list.. The 6 mana 5/5 classic card

    Let’s hope for pretty cool cards, always been a fan of Beasts and the hole Dinossaurs theme 😀

  15. Bryan
    February 28, 2017 at 6:24 am

    lol… expecting another rager to be added to the rager collection xD… could a fun deck specially for ragers appear in the meta someday?

  16. Sinister
    February 28, 2017 at 4:18 am

    Are the only class legendaries the ones gained from completing the quests or are there a “stand alone” legendary of each class? If not, you are kind of forced into playing quest-themed decks to use most of the new legendaries which would be a pity.

    • Evident - Author
      February 28, 2017 at 8:43 am

      Classes will get two Legendaries: One Quest and one normal Legendary. There will only be five Neutral Legendaries.

      • Sinister
        February 28, 2017 at 12:22 pm

        Okay thanks, I thought the quest spell itself was considered one of the legendary class cards.

    typically when can you buy the pre-purchase pack deal?

    • Evident - Author

      I would expect it around mid-to-late March, but nothing is official.

  18. JadeBuddha
    February 27, 2017 at 7:26 pm

    Magma Rager and Ice Rager are becoming elementals? What about Am’gam Rager or Shadow Rager? I, for one, look forward to the new elemental Rager meta.

    Man I hope Linken’s sword of mastery becomes a card in this set. If you remember that long arduous quest chain from back in the vanilla wow days then you deserve at least 40 silver pieces!

    • repHAWAII
      February 27, 2017 at 6:49 pm

      LOL ! I definitely deserve that 40 silver ! xD

    • Twisted420
      February 27, 2017 at 7:52 pm

      omg yes!! definitely would love to see some reference to the Linken quest line. That was always one of my favorite quest lines.

    February 27, 2017 at 1:22 pm

    Quests? Adapt? So many keywords – I’m amped. Glad to see they are continuing to evolve the game with new ideas.

  21. TacoRocco
    February 27, 2017 at 12:40 pm

    I’m really hype for this new expansion! I really like the idea of the Quest cards. Though I have a few questions about them that may not be answered right away.
    1) Will each class have multiple Quest cards?
    2) If so, will there be a limit of one Quest card per deck?
    3) Do Quest cards count towards your 30 card total?
    4) Since they will start in your starting hand, will they take the place of one of the cards in hand or does it add to it? For example, the player going first starts with 3 cards; will one of those cards always be the Quest card or do they get the Quest card in addition to the 3 cards?
    5) Do Quest cards count as spells? If so, these will be the first Legendary spells!

    I’m sure these will all be answered in time, but I still can’t wait to find out!

    • repHAWAII
      February 27, 2017 at 6:54 pm

      1. Yes ! 2 legendaries per class (1 quest/1minion)
      2. So far we only know of each class’s quest card
      3. Yes they do
      4. The quest card takes up a card in your opening hand (so still only 3 cards if going first)
      5. YES ! Wooo legendary spells !

      Also in relation to 5 , I’m curious if Yogg can cast them since they are counted as spells

    • Twisted420
      February 27, 2017 at 7:49 pm

      1- currently each class will have 1 quest card. in future expansions maybe this will change?
      3- yes they count toward your total
      4- yes they count as one of the cards in your starting hand, ie. you will draw your quest and 2 other cards, however i did read you can mulligan your quest card, not 100% sure on that.
      5- yes they are! first legendary spells indeed!! 😀

      • Random DUDE
        February 28, 2017 at 8:16 am

        No, random effects like Babbling Book or Yogg can’t target quests

    February 27, 2017 at 12:36 pm

    I wonder if Handlock will be a good deck now?

  23. TheLawnNinja
    February 27, 2017 at 10:10 am

    Really hoping that Paladin gets some love. The hand buff mechanic was fun, but forced you to prioritize putting more minions in the deck over removal spells/weapons. Combined with the tempo loss from playing a Smuggler’s Run or Grimestreet Outfitter instead of developing strong minions early on, the fast aggro meta just made the mechanic worthless. It’d be nice to see a new gimmick for Paladin that keeps pace with the other classes, or at least some cards that synergize with the hand buff mechanic to make it viable.

    • Bradward
      March 2, 2017 at 8:55 pm

      Unlikely that the hand buff mechanic will keep up with jade. The hand buff mechanic requires too many conciliations to make a viable deck i.e. limited spells, card draw, low mana curve. The jade mechanic allows decks to utilize its strengths without making compromises like hand buff does. Its poorly designed.

  26. Alkoviak
    February 27, 2017 at 3:11 am

    So I write it here but I feel there will be a few gadgetzan related cards in this expansion. Last expansion is the zone just near I world of Warcraft geography. I am waiting for a “goon explorator” or something in this water. Would be nice to find the local geography in wow used like that.

  27. Raemahn
    February 26, 2017 at 9:46 pm

    Hunter definitely needs the love, but I’m not seeing how paladin will get help with this theme. Are we in for a continuation of the drought for paladin competitive play?

    • Evident - Author
      February 26, 2017 at 8:46 pm

      It’s my busiest time for sure, have to keep tabs on everything constantly for new info and card reveals. Then there’s development stuff if there’s anything new added to the game (tri-class cards were a pain). We’ll see how this one goes!
