Journey to UnGoro is The New Hearthstone Expansion

03 March 2017, 12:54 | Candice Butler

The cinematic trailers for Hearthstone's previous expansions, such as and, have all come with jaunty ear-worms. Journey to Un'Goro will feature new mechanics, the Elementals tribe and a whole bunch of dinosaurs. Expansions like this keep players engaged and give them new digital packs of cards to buy, giving the free-to-play game a way to continue making money. Excitement is high over the new Quest cards, where players must finish a specific task or tasks to get a card as a reward. Like in this example, where you have to summon seven Deathrattle minions. Once you've satisfied the requirements, you'll be given a massive boon, like setting your hero's health to 40 (potentially healing off massive damage and increasing it past the standard 30).

Hearthstone's new cards will add 135 all-new minions, spells, and more, with Blizzard teasing that some of the game's familiar faces will gain the Elemental minion type, joining the ranks of Murlocs, Dragons, Pirates, and Beasts for exciting new synergies. The first Quest card shown by Blizzard, Awaken the Makers, is a Quest that, if successful, will award you the card Amara, Warden of Hope.

Blizzard's Hearthstone has millions of players playing and literally thousands of netdecks (online decklists) available throughout the internet's tubes. More cards will be revealed on March 17.

Another change comes in the form of Quest cards, played like secrets, which require you to fulfill a set requirement during your game in order to unlock a powerful Legendary card.

Snap Inc. set to price its IPO at $17 per share
Snapchat is expected to grow its US audience to 70.4 million by the end of 2017, according to a new report from eMarketer . Facebook's Instagram last August added Instagram Stories, a close clone of Snapchat Stories.

The Verdant Longneck, a five-mana 5/4 monster, is one of those adapt options, Mashable noted.

"Since you've been enlisted to join Elise for this expedition, you'll be able to influence where the explorers go and what they search for, so be sure to check back regularly and provide your expert opinion along the way". And the hand buffing and Jade styles of play in Mean Streets of Gadgetzan introduced new mechanics without a new keyword. The patch has also made it possible to bring golden versions of cards into the Arena. To see the value of this kind of thing, look at Druid of the Claw: a 4/6 Taunt or a 4/4 with Charge are not overwhelmingly great choices by themselves, but the fact that you can choose which one you want at the given moment makes the card worth more than the sum of its parts. These included a Shaman card called Volcano.

Despite the excitement around Quest and Adapt cards, Journey to Un'Goro places a major focus on Elementals.
