Hearthstone is a game I have come to love over the last few months. Whenever I am able to unlock the next Naxxramas tier it makes my week. Blizzard teased that they were going to release new Hearthstone Heroes and today they dropped the details of the first Hearthstone Warrior Hero Magni Bronzebeard.

"hese new Hearthstone Heroes will feature beautifully detailed animated Hero portraits, including all-new art never before seen in the Blizzard universe. The first new Hero we’re introducing is a famed Warrior—the mighty King of Ironforge himself, Magni Bronzebeard!

Aside from the vibrant new Hero portrait artwork, these new Heroes also come with unique Hero power animations. Magni’s version of the Warrior’s “Armor Up!” Hero Power is sure to reinforce the fact that his majesty is not to be trifled with!

New Heroes also come with unique emotes and voices that convey their individual personalities, a play area featuring a custom visual theme, and nifty “entering the game” animations so you can greet (or intimidate) your next opponent in style.

If that wasn’t enough, new Heroes also come with a unique card back that will impress even the mightiest of dwarven kings! The steadfast “Magni” card back is added to your collection immediately after purchasing the Magni Bronzebeard Hero, and can be used with any deck of your choice.

These new Heroes don't offer anything new in terms of gameplay(awwww) but they do offer a new way to make your play experience more unique. Magni Bronzebeard will costs $9.99 to unlock and according to Blizzard will be released soon. Are you planning on buying any Hearthstone Heroes or will you stick to the standard ones?

Oh I'm so disappointed! When there was talk of a new hero units, I thought ok, they didn't want to make a whole new class yet with new class cards etc, so they are doing just new hero characters for the existing classes.

I'm pretty bummed they don't come with a different ability

I agree. It's kind of neat to see some Hero diversity I was also hoping there would be some new abilities added.

I was definitely excited until I saw that he had to be bought.

"I was definitely excited until I saw that he had to be bought."

I know, I was pretty stoked about buying a new car and I was like WAIT I CAN'T GRIND THIS CAR OUT WITH GOLD DAILIES? I was pretty bummed about that. disappointed

I don't find buying a car to be analogous with this. Previously, everything in game was attainable, but now it's not. I feel disappointment is a legitimate reaction to finding out that a piece of the game has to be bought now.

Thankfully it's just a skin, so it won't affect gameplay.

Right, it was a joke based on some criticism i've been seeing about this. Hearthstone is a free to play game and like other free to play games is getting into the customization/skin for pay business. I think this is a good model to keep the game making enough money so I don't have to pay for it, or I might, I am still not sure.

Not sure what Blizzard is teasing here, but it looks like a new game mode?


AdamPFarnsworth wrote on 06/08/2015 at 04:41pm

Yeah, I just saw that! I'm seeing speculation including: a tournament mode, a team mode, a lightning mode and... a new shop for the skins. I'm really hoping it's one of the first 3 lol

Tavern Brawl!

Each week, a diifferent Tavern Brawl will pit you head to head versus another player using exciting and unique rules. One week might feature preset decks, while another week could have you crafting a brand new Tavern Brawl deck following specific guidelines, while others might offer buffs to specific minion types-who knows!

I'm very happy to see this coming. I'm kinda at a point where the gameplay is getting a bit old, and I look forward to this new mode!

That sounds fun!

Having a hard time imagining what that will be. I hope they post a gameplay video post launch to show it off.

AdamPFarnsworth wrote on 06/11/2015 at 01:54am

I'm hoping for some crazy weeks!
