It was almost the middle of August and the temperatures were rising everywhere, when the newest expansion for the acclaimed card based game Hearthstone arrived! Fresh and cool new art and abilities, new legendaries and combos to be played , all topped off with a nice adventure style expansion where throughout the several wings - unlocked every week - you had the chance to meet new bosses and their challenges and earn free card packs!
If not enough a special treat was given to the most resolute players in the form of a new hero that is well know of the Warcraft lore: Prince Arthas.
To win this hero you have to beat the final boss... his doppelganger The Lick King... with ALL of the nine classes. Let me just say the The Lich King has different approaches for each class making this challenge quite difficult. Pray to the RNG gods for this one!
With a set of 135 new cards in which 23 are legendary, a new ability was introduced called lifesteal. This ability let's you win health points each time a creature or a specific spell hits. Furthermore, amongst the legendaries every single hero has it's counterpart in the form of a Lich King as a playable card. Just like Jaraxus or Ragnaros! These extremely powerful legendaries have some incredible battlecry effects that will leave you stunned!
While the rest of August was a month of discovery within the new expansion, it is only now in September that we will see a matured meta regarding this new expansion.
Well it seems it's time to sit by the hearth and enjoy some late nights in this friendly tavern again!
