While the World of Warcraft players prepare for a fight for their souls in the Shadowlands, Hearthstone gives players a chance to enroll into Scholomance Academy in its prime.
On behalf of Headmaster Kel’Thuzad and the rest of our faculty, we’re thrilled to welcome you to Scholomance Academy, the fabled college of magic (and the title and setting for the newest Hearthstone expansion) where knowledge is power, students are brimming with magical potential, and rumors abound of vile things lurking beneath the school grounds…
Class will officially be in session in early August with the arrival of 135 all-new cards designed to supercharge the game with sorcerous synergies and dazzling displays of arcane splendor!
Scholomance Academy is renowned for providing its pupils with a richly varied magical education across multiple mystical disciplines. Dual-Class cards embody this cross-pollination of learnings by mashing up unique mechanics inspired by both classes’ strengths, unlocking a whole new spectrum of gameplay possibilities. These Dual-Class cards make up 40 of the 135 cards to be released with Scholomance Academy. Each Dual-Class combination also includes a shared Legendary minion—that course’s professor!
Scholomance Academy introduces a new keyword: Spellburst, a one-time only effect when you cast a spell! With a Spellburst minion or weapon in play, casting a Spell will activate its Spellburst effect. Spellburst minions add a new way to combo, play, and spell-blast your way to Legend!
Studies are new spells that allow you to Discover a card immediately and also reduce the mana cost of the next card you play of that type. At Scholomance Academy, dedicated study is rewarded with power!
And when you finish the expansion, why not drop by Karazhan for a party to keep the joyous mood of magical adventure going?
