Blizzard Entertainment has announced that the latest expansion for the card game Hearthstone is now live. Called Descent of Dragons, it introduces 5 new legendary Galakrond Hero cards, one for each League of E.V.I.L. Class: Rogue, Warrior, Warlock, Shaman, and Priest.
Over the course of a game, Galakrond can be powered up in three stages using the new Invoke mechanic.
While the League of E.V.I.L. is busy invoking the might of Galakrond, the League of Explorers can take on new Sidequests to earn advantages of their own. And, it wouldn’t be the Year of the Dragon without even MORE dragon synergy –each class will have a corresponding Dragon Breath — these cards gain significant bonuses while holding a Dragon.
Those who log into Hearthstone within the 90 days since the launch of the expansion will receive 3 Descent of Dragons Card Packs and 2 copies of Shield of Galakrond.
Snowy cheer will be filling the tavern starting on December 11, with festive board dressings and the return of Winter Veil emotes! Grab your favorite ornament…al axe and wreak havoc in the Decorating Dalaran Tavern Brawl to earn the Winter Veil Treat Card Back!
Just in time for the holidays, Blizzard also introduced a new Winter Veil Wonder Bundle available from December 19 until January 7 for $24.99:
- The new Dame Hazelbark Druid Hero and Card Back
- 30 Card Packs – 6 packs each from Saviors of Uldum, Rise of Shadows, The Witchwood, The Boomsday Project, and Rastakhan’s Rumble
