Hearthstone Darkmoon Faire new cards and Duels as Battlegrounds patch is released

Duels new game mode on Hearthstone – Breakflip – News Guides

The Mega Bundle, meanwhile, costs $79.99 United States dollars ($109.95 AUD) and includes 80 Madness at the Darkmoon Faire card packs, five golden MDF card packs, one random golden MDF legendary card, the playable N'Zoth Warlock Hero, the N'Zoth card back, Battleground perks and early access to Hearthstone Duels.

Madness at the Darkmoon Faire (MDF) will launch on November 17 (or Nov 18 in ANZ), but there are two pre-purchase options available now. Madness at the Darkmoon Faire features the return of C'thun, N'Zoth, Yogg-Saron, and Y'Shaarj, the Lovecraft-inspired Old Gods from the World of Warcraft universe, as well as Legendary minions.

Each Old God has a different deck archetype with a potent Battlecry capable of turning the tide of a match.

"Players can also tamper with Old God artefacts: four ancient spells with zany effects that hearken back to the abilities of the original Old God designs". Traditionally, Hearthstone expansions release the full set of cards all at once but for the Madness at the Darkmoon Faire, things are changing. If a card has corrupt, all a player needs to do is play a card with a higher mana cost than it and it will transform in a player's hand into an upgraded version of it. You will then slowly build up a deck, similar to dungeon run adventures, plucking new cards from a lineup between rounds.

Prior to its release with the new expansion, Hearthstone Duels will be available in Early Access. You can also try to randomly win early access through a Twitch promotion, which you can find more info on here.

In our test, we managed to win some matches - and lose many others too - and they were all fun and helped to learn some new tactics that could be put into practice in the following rounds. Let's go through them.

Hearthstone's next expansion is Madness at the Darkmoon Faire, introduces new Corrupt keyword and return of Old Gods

Players start out in Duels by choosing a hero with a unique hero power from the pool of Scholomance Academy professors. Developers have added an Achievements System that tracks player stats and in-game accomplishments, and new achievements will be added with each subsequent update.

"We tend to be a little more adventurous with the last set of the year", Chadd Nervig, Senior Game Designer tells me. They bring with them a new keyword to the game: Corrupt.

Big changes! That also includes a seasonal system, which Blizzard is calling the "reward track". (French hours). Blizzard will offer 500 early accesses to Hearthstone Duels every hour on any channel broadcasting from Hearthstone. Between each game, you gain access to a Treasure or additional cards that serve to further strengthen your deck.

While separate, Duels uses the same Ratings system as Battlegrounds. And hitting level 50 will earn players one of ten all-new hero skins.

Another new feature is Weekly Quest, which will appear alongside the game's Daily Quests and event-driven Legendary Quests. Best get to grinding those quests and saving that gold.
