Fireside Gatherings Now Live - Enjoy Your Early Pack Openings!

Fireside Gatherings Today - Enjoy Your Early Pack Openings!

As is custom there is the chance for everyone to open their Murder at Castle Nathria packs on starting Friday the 29th of July in The Fireside Gathering Early Pack Opening from 10am PT/ 1pm ET/ 19:00 CET/ 18:00 GMT. The Fireside Gathering for Murder at Castle Nathria will run until 10am PT/ 1pm ET/ 19:00 CET/ 18:00 GMT on Monday, August 1st!

A way for you to already open your packs you have pre-ordered and get a look at your new collection. You are limited to packs you got from the pre-order bundles, and you cannot get extra packs with gold. That will have to wait until the actual launch.

So how does this work?

  • Go to:
  • This is the official Blizzard site for creating Fireside Gatherings.
  • On this page create a Fireside Gathering at your location and at a time at least 1 hour into the future.
  • You can only create a Fireside Gathering for yourself, and only you can attend yours. NO public Fireside Gatherings yet due to Covid 19.
  • Once the time for your personal Fireside Gathering arrives, just log in to your Region with the packs, and you will automatically be taken to the Fireside Gathering section that is now active.
  • You can stay in the section and use the Fireside Gathering specific Brawls and games, OR if you want to open your packs, just return to your main screen and go to the Pack Opening section of the game.
  • Open Packs! As many or as few as you want. Be aware though, Class or Game mode specific Packs (from Book of Mercenaries for instance or the Standard packs from Tavern Brawl) will NOT have cards from the new expansion yet. You will need to open those on Launch Day to get the Murder at Castle Nathria Cards from them.
  • If you are looking for specific cards or want to know what you might be getting, use our Murder at Castle Nathria Card List to see the details!
  • When you are done you can just leave or play the game as normal.

Pre-Release Weekend

You can open your Pre-Purchase packs early at a private pre-release Fireside Gathering the weekend before Murder at Castle Nathria goes live on August 2. Private pre-release Fireside Gatherings can take place between July 29 at 10 am (PT) and August 1 at 10 am (PT). In the event that you should open them in your pre-release packs, Murloc Holmes and Golden copies of Sire Denathrius will be eligible for full dust refunds until August 5, at 10am (PT).

Head over to to register your private event!

In light of the ongoing health risk associated with in-person gatherings, the ability to create public events is still disabled.

Private Fireside Gatherings will:

  • Be eligible to receive Nemsy Necrofizzle if they fulfill all hosting prerequisites. This means having an established Tavern. Learn more about establishing your Tavern here.
  • Be eligible for the Fireside Gatherings card back.
  • Allow event listing creation the same day as the event is meant to be hosted.
  • Have the same Fireside Brawls as public Fireside Gatherings.
  • Be visible on the website only to the innkeeper hosting it. The Fireside Gathering itself will be visible in the game client and participants will be able to search for it and find it in the client as well.

Private Fireside Gatherings will NOT:

  • Be visible on Tavern or upcoming event pages.
  • Show up in the search function on the upcoming events page.
  • Count towards any Tavern or Innkeeper progression. They will not count towards establishing your Tavern. You will still need to host public events in the future as part of establishing your Tavern.
