Be wary, child, of Plaguelands plain... Be mindful, child, of the infected grain... For if throat is parched and of infected water sip... Forever your soul will be in cursed Scourge grip. So heed this warning, child, and if far from mother stray... Let light from home's hearth guide you back your way.
The Plaguebringer sees diseases and infection as the ultimate weapon, working tirelessly to master new pathogens and spread systems. A Plaguebringer has no remorse at unleashing his virus on his enemies, weakening the immune systems of his foes and spreading his twisted illnesses across Azeroth. These masters of infection arts keep their companions fighting far beyond their normal capacities boosting them with injections of mutated virus while debilitating and poisoning heir enemies. Disease is a tool and the Plaguebringer is its master.
The Plaguebringer colour is Bright Chartreuse
Margrave Stradama, Queen of the Slimes and once leader of the House of Plagues before their seat was destroyed. It was believed that Margrave Stradama was annhileted in the explosion that brought down her house. In truth the explosion transformed her into a monstrous new form of slimes and bones, driving her mad, and leaving her at the heart of the fallen House of Plagues. A source of plagues and disease, Stradama comes to Hearthstone to serve you global-pandemic realness.
Infect, is the new Keyword added with the Plaguebringer class. Once a minion is infected, its stats will progressively drop over the course of the battle, weakening even the strongest of the warriors.
The core set of the Plaguebringer focuses on the Infected keyword and the exclusive Blightburst mechanic. These two elements are the bases of the Plaguebringer class, a slow play style that weakens enemy minions and also damages the opponent overtime with some insidious and potentially deadly DoTs.
The Post Core Set
For the post core expansion I wanted to add a bit of lore and flavour to it coming up with a story that fit in the current lore. I believe one of the major strengths of Hearthstone is it's unique storytelling charm and I tried my best to come up with a plausible entry. So here's the story of Mervino, our mercenary, and a terrible and mysterious disease that will force the human capital of Stormwind in LOCKDOWN.
All quests are linked together to tell a story so does ours. Mervino sneaks into Stormwind to do some Questionable Testing on a void shard and a mysterious pathogen. However, during the demonic invasion caused by Tamsin, we have an Accidental Release of the concoction that will start spreading a mysterious and undiscovered disease across the streets of Stormwind. And you know goblins, profit is profit, and a Plague is Profit. How can you say no to the help of a renowned Plague Doctor to stop the spread of a mysterious disease? You need all the help you can get, even if this mean dealing with the Horde. Now, rumours says that he was actually helping the spread of the plague and the majority of the work was done by the new established Department of Health of Stormwind and the charitable soul of the new Minister of Health Shaina Fuller, however, Mervino the Plague Doctor is now in the story, recognised by the Horde for creating a dreadful disease and by the Alliance as a saviour and the brain behind the complete redesign of the First-Aid professionals in Stormwind.
