Following the format of the Overwatch World Cup from BlizzCon, each region will be represented by champions chosen by the Hearthstone community. As a result, these aren’t necessarily the most skilled players, but the most popular. The regions all voted, and now the teams are...

Daily rewards in Hearthstone lead up to Year of the Mammoth and Journey to Un’Goro Hearthstone’s Year of the Mammoth, which will shake up play once again by switching up what’s playable in Standard mode, is right around the corner. With it comes the new Journey to Un’Goro expansion and now a host of new rewards. (And though we don’t have a release date just yet, the schedule of these rewards may...




Do you enjoy the Hearthstone’s Journey to Un’goro cards so far? During Friday’s Hearthstone livestream with Day 9 and Senior Designer Peter Whalen, they showcased a handful of cards. I love the new Elise! She comes in at a 5/5 for 5 mana and this time she doesn’t give you a map to the golden monkey. Instead, Elise gives you an Un’goro pack which is literally an...

Un’goro Madness in WoW and Journey to Un’goro Hearthstone preview today Are you ready for Un’goro? Hopefully so, because Blizzard is about to be all Un’goro all the time. WoW’s Un’goro Madness micro-holiday — originally scheduled for August — is now starting tomorrow. Running from Friday, March 17 to Monday, March 20, the holiday is described simply: “The dinosaurs in Un’goro are getting restless. Time to go...

Tavern Brawl awarding a new Journey to Un’goro pack Although this week’s Tavern Brawl isn’t exactly a new challenge (it’s Encounter at the Crossroads again), the reward is a refreshing change. Besting this tavern brawl will net you a cool Journey to Un’goro pack. If you’re not familiar with this week’s challenge, there’s no deck construction involved unlike last week’s Heroic Tavern Brawl. Simply pick...

Ben Brode lays down a sick Journey To Un’Goro rap We were excited by the announcement of the next Hearthstone expansion, Journey To Un’Goro. The idea of Elise Starseeker leading a group of junior explorers through the wilderness was equal parts charming and frightening. However, many viewers, including the Hearthstone subreddit, noticed a glaring omission from the cinematic — there was no catchy theme song! Multi-talented...




Latest Hearthstone patch paves the way for Year of the Mammoth Hearthstone released its latest update today. Generally speaking, there’s nothing groundbreaking in the patch notes that we didn’t already know about. The patch contains the Spirit Claws and Small-Time Buccaneer changes detailed earlier this month, as well as the changes to the ranking system, arenas, and more previously outlined in the Year of the Mammoth...

The costs associated with Hearthstone’s Year of the Mammoth Year of Mammoth and Journey to Un’goro are due to launch in April, and the decision to drop Adventures from Hearthstone have some players worried about how much the game will cost. Some estimates put the cost of getting most of Year of the Mammoth’s cards — three Expansions worth — at almost $700. But after looking at their...



Journey to Un’Goro is Hearthstone’s next expansion We’d heard rumors, but now it’s official: the next Hearthstone expansion is taking us to Un’goro. Journey to Un’goro will include 135 cards, which include some brand new features: Quest cards, which are pretty much what they sound like. These cards challenge you to perform a specific action, and you get a reward when you do....

Arena changes coming to Hearthstone in patch 7.1 I admit, I tired of attempting the Hearthstone Arena within a month of the game’s launch. All I ever seemed to get were terrible cards which made for terrible decks which made for terrible losses — buying packs, for me, was clearly a better use for my gold. But the Hearthstone team plans to shake up the Arena,...

Hearthstone details the Year of the Mammoth The first year of structured Hearthstone play, Year of the Kraken, is quickly coming to an end. The Year of the Mammoth looms on the horizon and the Hearthstone team has just detailed exactly what that means. Set Rotation Hearthstone introduced its Zodiac specifically to rotate old sets out of Standard play. When Year of...

There's an echo in here.
Hearthstone’s Spirit Claws and Small-Time Buccaneer nerfed with upcoming changes Hearthstone Community Manager Zeriyah took to the forums to announce some of the upcoming balance changes coming to the game. It isn’t a secret that Shaman decks are one of the more popular decks on the ladder. First up on the chopping block is Spirit Claws, as its cost has been raised by an additional...

Lost Secrets of Un’goro the next Hearthstone expansion according to potential leak In the wee hours of the morning, a curious title was discovered in voice actress Lani Minella’s résumé, found on her personally managed website, AudioGodz. Lani Minella lists herself as the voice actress for multiple dino-themed roles in Hearthstone: Lost Secrets of Un’goro which, obviously, does not yet exist. Lani Minella is listed as the...

Hearthstone’s State of the Meta Anyone else finding the Hearthstone meta pretty stale? I know I am. I’ve taken a bit of a small break from the game. I see nothing but Reno decks, Shaman decks, and Pirate decks. On the other hand, I only represent a small sample size of one, at a specific rank that isn’t even legend. Are things...

A brief history of Valeera Sanguinar With her introduction in Heroes of the Storm, Valeera Sanguinar has now appeared in three Blizzard games: World of Warcraft, Hearthstone and now Heroes. What you may not know about the Blood Elf Rogue is that she’s got a long history — her first lore appearance was in World of Warcraft: The Comic Book issue...

Playing Reno Mage in Hearthstone I should warn you that Reno Mage isn’t exactly an affordable deck to put together. There are 8 legendary cards in here but 3 of them are from adventures. Enjoy the deck while you still can as there are only a few months to go before Reno Jackson rotates out of Standard and the viability of...
