We’ve already covered Battlegrounds patch notes (Dragons, new minions, new Heroes etc.) in another post, and here is the rest of news.
Twitch Drops To Celebrate Dragons in Battlegrounds
Yep, Twitch drops are coming back, but this time not because of a tournament. To celebrate Dragons coming to Battlegrounds, Blizzard decided to drop some packs.
From February 26 (today!) at 11 AM PT until February 29 at 5 PM PT (Saturday), get Descent of Dragons packs for watching any Hearthstone stream. If you watch for 3 hours in total, you get a single pack. Watch for 3 more hours (6 in total) for another pack.
Keep in mind that you first need to link your Battle.net account in Twitch settings (if you haven’t done that already).
Hearthstone is Turning Six!
Hearthstone is turning 6 years very soon. Happy birthday!
Log in between March 4 and March 17 to receive 2x Rise of Shadows pack, 2x Saviors of Uldum pack, 2x Descent of Dragons pack as well as a Year of the Dragon Card Back (sorry, we’ve previously said card PACK, but it’s card BACK :p).
We will also get a commemorative Tavern Brawl and a Legendary quest line (although we don’t know what rewards will the quests have).
Mage Pack Bundle
After a recent new addition in form of a Year of the Dragon pack (containing only cards from the three latest expansion), we’ve got another interesting thing. A class pack!
Blizzard is selling five Mage packs for $9.99. While it is more expensive than regular packs, it will contain only Mage cards from
Year of the Dragon Standard expansions. The whole deal might be worth it for dedicated Mage players who are missing some cards, although the price seems a bit too high.
(Update: The original patch notes mentioned YEAR OF THE DRAGON expansions, but it was quickly edited to mention all Standard expansions. It reduces the value of this bundle quite considerably for Standard players, since Year of the Raven sets rotate out in roughly 1.5 months. And it isn’t really worth it for Wild players, since it can’t give you cards from the older expansions. So at this point I’m really not sure who would want to buy it.)
Khadgar Back in the Shop
Yep, that’s right. Khadgar Mage Hero. He was previously available a few times, but always limited in some way (e.g. to iOS users or Chinese players).
This time is no different. Although everyone can get him (for the regular price of $9.99), he will only be available Until March 4. If you want to get him, do it quickly!
It’s finally time for the Arena rotation! It came pretty late (everyone expected it ~2 weeks ago), but Arena players will finally experience a change of pace. Here are the sets available in new rotation:
- Goblins vs. Gnomes
- The Witchwood
- Saviors of Uldum
- Descent of Dragons
- Galakrond’s Awakening
