Journey to Un'Goro Launches This Thursday!

Hearthstone's newest expansion launches on Thursday and we're here to give you all the details in one easy place!

  • 135 new cards have been added to the game.
  • Datamined client data shows there is 3 Free Un'Goro Packs waiting for you when you login!
  • There is a quest to obtain the new Rogue hero, Maiev. Details can be found below.
  • Legendary spells have arrived! They take the form of in-game Quests and you can see them all below.
  • Don't forget you can use Innkeeper to track your collection on the site to find decks easier that you can craft!




New Mechanic: Quests

There is a new mechanic featured on spells called Quest. This is how they work:

  • You will always start off with your Quest card if you have one in your deck, though you are allowed to mulligan it.
  • Completing a Quest's stated requirements will earn you a Reward.
  • Every class has one Quest card. There are no neutral Quests.

Below you can find every Quest in the game alongside its Reward.

New Keyword: Adapt

Adapt is a new keyword that lets you give your cards new attributes to combat the many situations you may find yourself in during a game of Hearthstone. It works a bit like Discover in that there is a pool of choices you get to pick from but are only presented with three options. These options are as follows.

  • +3 Attack
  • +3 Health
  • +1/+1
  • Windfury
  • Taunt
  • Poisonous
  • Divine Shield
  • Deathrattle: "Summon two 1/1 Plants."
  • Can't be targeted by spells or Hero Powers.
  • Stealth until your next turn

New Tribe: Elementals

Elementals have arrived! Not only are there a lot of new minions added to the game with this new Tribe, but some minions of the past have been upgraded. You will find that Elementals tend to work together and some cards even trigger off them but themselves are not Elementals.

Check out some of these cool Elemental interactions.


Sets Rotating From Standard

The following sets of cards are no longer available for play in Standard once Un'Goro goes live. Our deckbuilder and decks on the site have been updated to reflect this change.

Additionally, six cards have been moved from the Classic Set and into the Hall of Fame and cannot be used in Standard.

New Playable Hero: Maiev Shadowsong

A new hero has arrived! Maiev Shadowsong is the new Rogue hero and can be yours for free as long as you play 10 games in the new Standard format once the Year of the Mammoth goes live with Un'Goro.
