Nov 19, 2018Garlicnerd posted a message on Rastakhan's Rumble - Card Reveals and Details for Hearthstone's Tenth ExpansionPosted in: Guides
It seems clear now that for this expansion each class is getting 2 separate gimmicks with some thematic/flavorful overlap, with each gimmick corresponding to one of the classes legendaries. The most obvious example of this is Warlock. The description for the bats reads:
- "The shrieking, shadow-skulking aspirant of the bat loa Hir’eek revels in the boos she gets from the crowd. Warlocks willing to make the right sacrifices will find Jeklik a useful champion who seems to be everywhere at once."
We now know that Warlock's two gimmicks are hand-buffing (as shown by Hir'eek, the Bat and Spirit of the Bat) and discarding (as shown by High Priestess Jeklik and the 3 discard cards she was revealed alongside). Both have some secondary connection in that they both have copy effects and involve "sacrificing".
Now although it's not as obvious for the other classes I still think we can make predictions about the divergent gimmicks of the other classes, and in some cases even which legendaries they correspond to. I made a post similar to this earlier but the key difference this time is the knowledge that there are TWO class themes instead of one, as well as the presence of new information from cards.
Druid- I predict that one of Druid's class themes will be the Savagery we see from Savage Striker. Furthermore, I predict that this will be the theme of Wardruid Loti based on the fact that she is "a master of shapeshifting and claw-to-hand combat." It is not certain what Gonk, the Raptor's theme is although Ironhide Direhorn may or not be a hint to a beast theme.
Mage- We already know that one of Mage's themes this set is hero power synergy as shown by Jan'alai, the Dragonhawk, and associated cards. I hold from my prior post and the fact that Peter Whalen confirmed on stream today that these are the only four mage Hero Power cards, that mage's other theme is in some way connected to planning or prior turns (???). I'm not sure what that means but Hex Lord Malacrass is a weird card.
I won't give my explanations for the rest of these categories but they're mostly obvious I think.
