United in Stormwind will be the next Hearthstone expansion, continuing the storyline of Mercenaries that started earlier this year. Unlike the first one, which was mostly about Horde, this one will focus on Alliance and the titular human capital city – Stormwind.
While there are still ~2 weeks until expansion’s launch, we’ll be soon 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.
Reveal season will kick off with a link to official Hearthstone YouTube account, so we should probably expect a video with a few reveals, or something along those lines, since no opening stream was announced. The final reveal is on July 27 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 cards 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!
