Each card represents an action that the player can take by playing that card. There are three main types of cards: spell cards, hearthstone , art The art used on Hearthstone s cards is one of the most striking and memorable aspects of the game s artistic design.

All cards drawn by the player during a game come from their deck. Each deck is tied to a specific class. Decks can be created and hearthstone , and new Class Challenges to play using pre-made decks.

Once the player has obtained an adventure card, they are then allowed to craft and disenchant regular and golden Golden cards often add movement and visual effects, like with this golden Piloted Shredder "Golden" redirects here.

The League of Explorers is Hearthstone The Hearthstone icon Hearthstone (formerly known as Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft 1] 2]) is a free-to-play digital collectible card game from Blizzard Entertainment. It was first announced in a presentation by Rob Pardo at the hearthstone `s third adventure, released Nov. 12, 2015.

The adventure contains 4 wings, with 13 boss Bosses are unique computer-controlled heroes encountered in adventures, the tutorial, and some Tavern Brawls. Each boss presents a unique encounter, featuring their own Hero Power and decks. Bosses use a combination of regular cards and hearthstone encounters, as well as a Heroic mode and 9 Class Challenges. In addition to the usual boss battles, the adventure also debuts a new kind of encounter - where the player must survive through several rounds of traps, ambushes and environmental events to escape to safety. The adventure adds 45 new collectible Collectible cards are cards which are available for players to collect and use in their decks. The majority of all playable cards are collectible cards. Players can view their collectible card collection through the collection cards Cards are the basic pieces that make up the game of Hearthstone.

The League of Explorers sees the player following four famed adventurers - Elise Starseeker, Reno Jackson, Sir Finley Mrrgglton, and Brann Bronzebeard - on a journey through some of Azeroth`s most exotic and dangerous locations, on a quest to recover an ancient Titan artifact - the Staff of Origination. As each wing is completed, players gather pieces of the Staff, and put them on display in the museum. Be that as it may, the League of Explorers are not the only ones searching for the artifact, and danger waits within the shadows.

Setting

Most adventures, such as Curse of Naxxramas "Whispers of an ancient tomb… holding horrors in every room. Ghastly ghouls, poisons galore… but in the shadows lurks something more. Knights of death and abominations… cleaving your bits for new creations. And if by hearthstone , Blackrock Mountain "Have you heard the rumblings? The mountain stirs once more. Beneath its crags, cliffs and rocks, there s evil in its core. Fire made flesh! Dragon s breath! Teeth and claw and flame! Calling any heroes out hearthstone and One Night in Karazhan  "Your host, the great magus Medivh, invites you back to party down - with me!"  "Come inside... Meet your friends at the door. We ve got a feast like you ve never seen before. Shake your stuff hearthstone , are set firmly in World of Warcraft World of Warcraft (WoW) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) created by Blizzard Entertainment. The game was first released Nov. 2004, and has since seen six expansions: The Burning Crusade (2007), Wrath of hearthstone lore. While Curse of Naxxramas is specifically based on the Naxxramas raid, Blackrock Mountain incorporates several raids and dungeons from the Blackrock Mountain zone, and One Night in Karazhan  "Your host, the great magus Medivh, invites you back to party down - with me!"  "Come inside... Meet your friends at the door. We ve got a feast like you ve never seen before. Shake your stuff hearthstone reimagines the setting and characters from the Karazhan raid. In all three cases, the adventures feature specific bosses, abilities and characters from the corresponding instances.

The game`s third adventure, League of Explorers, departs from this formula somewhat. The adventure comprises a journey through several areas, most of which are already well-known, including some bosses which have been previously featured in World of Warcraft. Be that as it may, while the previous adventures simply recreated instances, LoE creates an entirely new narrative, including a storyline that moves beyond established events within World of Warcraft, and features several encounters and characters original to Hearthstone - including the adventure`s arch-villain.

Wings

Each adventure is split across multiple `wings`. Each wing comprises a small sequence of boss Bosses are unique computer-controlled heroes encountered in adventures, the tutorial, and some Tavern Brawls. Each boss presents a unique encounter, featuring their own Hero Power and decks. Bosses use a combination of regular cards and hearthstone encounters, with rewards from defeating each encounter as well as from completing the wing. Each wing features a number of bosses as well as one or more Class Challenges. Each boss Bosses are unique computer-controlled heroes encountered in adventures, the tutorial, and some Tavern Brawls. Each boss presents a unique encounter, featuring their own Hero Power and decks. Bosses use a combination of regular cards and hearthstone must be defeated in order to unlock the next boss Bosses are unique computer-controlled heroes encountered in adventures, the tutorial, and some Tavern Brawls. Each boss presents a unique encounter, featuring their own Hero Power and decks. Bosses use a combination of regular cards and hearthstone in that wing.

All adventures currently feature 4-5 wings, with the wings unlocking one per week following the adventure`s initial release. Each wing must be purchased or otherwise unlocked using in-game gold The gold counter, found in the bottom right corner of most menu screens Gold is a type of in-game currency that can be exchanged for card packs, or entry into either Arena or Heroic Tavern hearthstone or real money before it can be played. Wings are also released progressively, and cannot be unlocked until they have been released. Each wing can be purchased separately, or can be bought in multi-wing discounts if using real money. Wings must be purchased in order, and unlocking certain wings may require completion of previous wings.

Encounters

Prince Malchezaar(42084).png

Each adventure comprises a series of encounters or boss battles, regular matches with a few specific differences.

Each encounter features one or more computer-controlled heroes or "bosses". These unique heroes feature their own emotes and dialogue, and generally represent major characters from World of Warcraft World of Warcraft (WoW) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) created by Blizzard Entertainment. The game was first released Nov. 2004, and has since seen six expansions: The Burning Crusade (2007), Wrath of hearthstone . As in regular matches, the player must defeat the boss in order to win the match. In some cases, defeating the first boss will cause them to be replaced with a second boss, who must also then be defeated in order to win the match. Each boss must be defeated in order to unlock the next boss in that wing.

Each boss comes with one or more unique Hero Powers, and their own deck, which generally contain some boss cards, special and often extremely powerful cards Cards are the basic pieces that make up the game of Hearthstone. Each card represents an action that the player can take by playing that card. There are three main types of cards: spell cards, hearthstone which are not available to players. Bosses` decks are not subject to the 2-per-deck rule, and may contain a mix of neutral cards, boss cards and class cards from a variety of different classes, otherwise unseen within the game. The combination of boss cards, boss Hero Powers and specially prepared decks make boss encounters unique and potentially very challenging, often with a specific theme or mechanic to the encounter. Boss abilities are frequently "totally unfair", featuring powers far beyond those available to players.

Almost all boss battles have the player going first, and the boss second. This means that the boss will generally get The Coin. One exception is Patchwerk from Curse of Naxxramas "Whispers of an ancient tomb… holding horrors in every room. Ghastly ghouls, poisons galore… but in the shadows lurks something more. Knights of death and abominations… cleaving your bits for new creations. And if by hearthstone .

Unlike other modes of play, boss battles do not feature a turn timer. This allows the player to take as long as they like to assess the situation each turn.

Certain boss encounters may also feature special limitations, such as the Heroic Loatheb encounter, during which it is not permitted to use Alexstrasza. These limitations are not announced within the game, but can be found in each boss` wiki article.

Escape encounters

Introduced with The League of Explorers, the "escape encounter" is a variant on the standard boss encounter, in which the goal is not to defeat the enemy boss, but simply to survive for a stated number of turns. Bosses in escape encounters are Immune, and cannot be defeated conventionally, usually representing the environment or location through which the player is escaping, rather than an enemy as such. Escape bosses have no deck, and do not directly play cards, instead using their Hero Power each turn to bring special events and obstacles into play, which the player must survive. Current escape encounters are Temple Escape and Mine Cart Rush.

Normal and Heroic

Adventures have two difficulties: Normal and Heroic mode. The difference lies in the bosses, with Heroic bosses featuring more powerful Hero Powers and special cards Cards are the basic pieces that make up the game of Hearthstone. Each card represents an action that the player can take by playing that card. There are three main types of cards: spell cards, hearthstone , as well as more Health and/or Armor, and in many cases different decks A deck is a collection of exactly 30 cards. All cards drawn by the player during a game come from their deck. Each deck is tied to a specific class. Decks can be created and hearthstone .

Normal mode is the default mode for playing adventures, designed to allow players of all abilities to participate in and complete the adventure. For less experienced players Normal mode encounters can vary in difficulty from easy to tough, but should be beatable with a little experimentation with different classes and/or deck types to match the design of the encounter. For more experienced players Normal mode is generally relatively easy. Defeating a boss in Normal mode is required to gain their card rewards and to progress within the adventure; for this reason they are designed to ultimately be beatable by all players.

In contrast, Heroic mode is intended to offer a more substantial challenge. Heroic bosses usually require several attempts to defeat even by experienced players, and generally require the construction of new and specific decks in order to counter the boss` unique abilities and style. Heroic bosses are therefore designed to offer a challenge not only in play, but in deck construction.

Completing Heroic mode usually requires either substantial ability in deck construction and encounter assessment, or the use of a specific guide. Even with a guide, players may still find Heroic mode bosses quite a challenge, as well as an interesting experience in learning the specific behaviors of that encounter.

Ultimately, Normal mode encounters are designed to be beatable using only a full collection of basic cards, while Heroic mode encounters expect players to have at least some other cards. In some cases, this can mean Heroic mode encounters which are extremely difficult to beat without certain cards, although there is usually a range of possible strategies and decks capable of achieving victory. In testing, the Hearthstone team has ensured that all Normal mode bosses can be beaten with basic cards.

For all current adventures, defeating all bosses of that adventure in Heroic mode will grant an exclusive card back, the same one used by Heroic bosses within the adventure.

Access

In each adventure, the Heroic mode of each wing must first be unlocked through completing that wing in Normal mode. Once unlocked, the bosses of that wing can be tackled in Heroic mode in any order.

Class Challenges

The League of Explorers Class Challenges screenshot.jpg

In addition to regular boss encounters using the player`s own decks, players may also choose to take on Class Challenges, which are boss Bosses are unique computer-controlled heroes encountered in adventures, the tutorial, and some Tavern Brawls. Each boss presents a unique encounter, featuring their own Hero Power and decks. Bosses use a combination of regular cards and hearthstone encounters that give the player specially-prepared class-specific decks for them to battle bosses with. This deck, and the enemy`s deck, are not directly revealed to the player at any point. Normally the decks featured consist of 30 cards in total, and similar to Arena decks, they are not restricted to the 2-copies-per-card limit found in constructed play. Class Challenges offer a new twist on the adventure`s regular encounters, often showing the player different deck archetypes that can be created for a class from using cards specifically released from that adventure set.

Completing each Class Challenge will reward the player with two copies of a new class-specific card for that class. Each Class Challenge features the related card in the challenge, as well as often including other cards from that adventure, which may not yet be available for players to collect. The player`s decks often showcase a specific deck archetype, demonstrating how the related card can be used to great effect, such as by including several other cards into the deck with which the card has good synergy. This synergy often extends to the Hero Powers and cards used by the Challenge`s boss.

Class Challenges are initially locked, and are unlocked by completing their corresponding adventure wing. Each Class Challenge is fought against a boss from that wing. Furthermore, Class Challenges do not have Heroic modes.

Adventure cards

Adventure cards are cards Cards are the basic pieces that make up the game of Hearthstone. Each card represents an action that the player can take by playing that card. There are three main types of cards: spell cards, hearthstone obtained through adventures, the primary form of reward for adventures. Adventures contain around 30-45 new collectible Collectible cards are cards which are available for players to collect and use in their decks. The majority of all playable cards are collectible cards. Players can view their collectible card collection through the collection cards each, including a mix of neutral and class cards.

Standard format adventure cards are normally obtained through defeating a particular boss Bosses are unique computer-controlled heroes encountered in adventures, the tutorial, and some Tavern Brawls. Each boss presents a unique encounter, featuring their own Hero Power and decks. Bosses use a combination of regular cards and hearthstone or Class Challenge for that adventure. A few adventure cards are instead awarded immediately upon purchasing the adventure. All non-legendary cards are awarded x2; while legendary cards are awarded x1. Once the regular version of an adventure card has been obtained, both regular and golden Golden cards often add movement and visual effects, like with this golden Piloted Shredder "Golden" redirects here. For information on golden heroes, see Golden heroes. Golden cards are special, rarer versions of cards. Each card hearthstone versions can be crafted and disenchanted for the usual amounts.

Wild format Wild format or Wild is one of Hearthstone s two game formats, the other being Standard format. Wild format appears in game modes in which players are allowed to play decks without the deck restrictions of hearthstone adventure cards are still obtainable from their respective adventures, if the adventure was already purchased. Else, they will have to be obtained through crafting. Players who did not purchase the adventure before the adventure left Standard format Standard format, or Standard, is one of Hearthstone s two game formats, the other being Wild format. Standard format is intended to feature a fresher and more focused Hearthstone experience, with a limited pool of cards hearthstone will only be able to obtain the Wild format adventure cards through crafting.

Regarding Arena, once the wing from which a card was rewarded had been released, that card would become available as an Arena pick for all players, regardless of whether a player had collected or unlocked it yet. Similarly, cards in released adventure wings can also be brought into play through effects such as Unstable Portal and Webspinner.

Adventures were released weekly in wings, adding these released cards to the game`s main pool of cards on a weekly basis. This is in contrast to expansion cards, which are added to the main pool of cards all at once. This allowed adventure cards to impact the meta progressively over several weeks, rather than all at once like with expansion cards. Adventures also add far smaller amounts of cards to the pool, unlike expansions.

Other rewards

  • Defeating all bosses within an adventure in Heroic mode will unlock a unique card back.
  • Adventure matches can earn the player XP, but cannot be used to complete daily quests, with the exception of the "Total Dominance" quest.

Other features

Each adventure features a unique battlefield The battlefield (or game board) is where the action takes place, representing the board on which each game is played out. Around the battlefield are various important UI elements, such as each player s hand, deck hearthstone , used for all matches in that adventure. These battlegrounds are initially usable only during their corresponding adventure, but at some point following the release of the adventure are added to the rotation for regular play.

Each adventure also features unique music initially only heard while playing that adventure, and may bring new pieces of music added to the game`s general musical repertoire. Once the accompanying battlefield has been released into general circulation, the adventure`s music may also be made available, exclusively for use with the battlefield.

Practice mode matches are played against The Innkeeper, but unlike other adventures do not feature special dialogue or voiceovers.

Speculation on future adventures

While Curse of Naxxramas reflected the World of Warcraft raid`s second incarnation, the original raid was released as part of `vanilla` WoW, and the raid and dungeon instances represented in Blackrock Mountain are also mostly from vanilla WoW. The Karazhan raid instance was added with The Burning Crusade, although One Night in Karazhan takes place in a far earlier era. The League of Explorers is an original narrative, but revisits three locations from classic WoW - Uldaman, Zul`Gurub, and the Hall of Explorers inside Ironforge - as well as introducing the Temple of Orsis, an original location set in the Cataclysm zone of Uldum.

The most common thread seems to be focusing on classic and memorable World of Warcraft experiences, almost all based on instances from early in the game`s history, albeit with substantial room for reinvention and a fresh, and distinctly Hearthstone, twist. With the exception of the Temple of Orsis` rough setting in Uldum, no adventure has yet been created based upon an instance from later than The Burning Crusade, and with a range of classic raids yet to be explored, it seems likely Hearthstone will see more vintage adventures.

Trivia

  • Only a "very small" portion of players have obtained the adventure card backs granted by defeating Heroic bosses.
  • One factor in the development of adventures was the desire to avoid outpacing new players through the regular addition of too many new cards. The boss encounters of adventures offered an alternative form of content, engaging players and freshening the meta, while expanding the card pool by a far smaller amount. The guaranteed cards from adventures also offered a more reliable way for new players to obtain key cards, in contrast to the RNG of card packs.
  • In spring 2016, the developers planned to release one new adventure somewhere in the middle of each year. Be that as it may, adventure sets were discontinued and replaced with expansions in the 2017 Year of the Mammoth. Instead, free adventure-like optional single-player missions, themed around the expansion and serving to illustrate its story, setting, and characters, will be featured with each expansion, starting with the second expansion of 2017.
