Important Dates

  • Madness at the Darkmoon Faire launches November 17.
  • Hearthstone Duels Early Access launches October 22 (Today).
  • Hearthstone Duels Season 1 starts November 17.
  • Progression and Rewards system updates launches November 12.

It's an exciting day for Hearthstone players! Blizzard is revealing new details on the upcoming set, a new game mode, and details on new game systems.

  • We are expecting to see information on the upcoming battle pass. Maybe even achievements!
  • Watching the stream can earn you 2 Scholomance Packs.
  • If you want to chat about the stream in real-time with fellow Out of Cards members, join our Discord!

Today is the replacement for what would normally be the reveals at BlizzCon since Blizzard's huge event has been postponed until February. It might be a little bit earlier than normal to hear about the new expansion, but with it only being a week or two earlier, it made more sense to announce the expansion earlier alongside the new game mode to make for one big event. Who knows, we may even get to play the new mode today since there is a client patch confirmed!

Read on for all our coverage on today's event. We'll have dedicated posts and guides afterward that discuss everything in more detail as well, so stay tuned for that.


New Expansion - Madness at the Darkmoon Faire

The new set is named Madness at the Darkmoon Faire!

  • New Keyword: Corrupt - When you hold one of these cards and you play a card with a higher cost, it'll corrupt the card.
  • A mini-set of 35 will be added later in the expansion.

How Yogg Works


New Game Mode - Duels

Launches today!

  • This is a PVP version of Dungeon Runs!
  • You'll get to add more cards to your deck as your progress in your duels run.
  • Scholomance, Karazhan, Naxxramas, Basic, and Classic sets are available to start during Early Access.
  • When Darkmoon Faire comes out, Darkmoon Faire and Whispers of the Old Gods are all being added to the sets available.
  • Early Access is available if you pre-order Madness at the Darkmoon Faire.

Additionally, there are two formats available for duels.

  • Casual - Lets you test your skills.
  • Heroic - A paid version that has you battle for rewards.

Achievements

  • There are achievements for collections, different modes.
  • If you collect 135 unique cards in a set, you get a special cosmetic coin! 

Progression Revamp - The Tavern Pass and Rewards Track

  • Doesn't matter if you miss dailies anymore - you can make up for that.
  • At level 25 you get a random legendary.
  • At level 50, you can choose a free hero skin.
  • Daily quests reward experience instead of gold (Gold is now in the reward track instead).
  • We have weekly quests now too!
    • You can reroll weekly quests (once per day)
    • You get 3 weekly quests at the start of a new week.
  • We've got a new profile page!
  • Completing all 50 levels of the Reward Track with the Tavern Pass gets you a cosmetic coin (different compared to collecting cards).


The Pre Show

  • We started off on a looped video of a walk through the Darkmoon Island forest.
  • We have arrived at the Darkmoon Faire! What is beyond the gates?
  • We've zoomed out a bit and we can see a... Moon? Planet?
  • The sky is changing colors! We're getting pitch shifts on the music.
  • It's a bubble gum old god! Or the stuff Chicken Nuggets are made out of.
  • A second bubble gum has appeared!
  • WHAT THE OLD GODS?! N'ZOTH!
  • Music is getting drowned out by N'Zoth noises. More tentacles!
  • World of Warcraft's spirit realm music is playing in the background now. A timer has appeared.
