Knights of the Frozen Throne Announced

Links


Hero Cards

All nine heroes of Hearthstone (original heroes that is) are going to die on Knights of the Frozen Throne and be resurrected as Death Knights.

What we know so far

No, we are not getting a Death Knight class, but we are getting new Legendaries called Hero Cards for each class. These are the Death Knight versions of all nine classes and, when played, will replace your hero, give you some armor, activates a powerful Battlecry, and replaces your Hero Power.

We have only seen one Hero Card so far:

Deathstalker Rexxar

The Hero Card itself says nothing on it about replacing your Hero Power or what that new Hero Power does... nevermind, asked Team 5 and they said it pops up on the side.



New but old Keyword: Lifesteal

We’ve already seen this effect in game, but now it has it’s own Keyword. When a card with Lifesteal deals damage, your hero is healed for the same amount.

They showed both a minion and a spell with Lifesteal:

Spirit Lash

Chillblade Champion


Two more cards

It was mentioned in the reveal that Deathrattle will be making a strong resurgence in the new expansion.

Shallow Gravedigger

Prince Keleseth

In total we’ve seen 5 of the 135 cards from the set. That is less than 4% of the total set.

DEFCON 3 moving to DEFCON 2

Hi Crazed Cluckers,

I wanted to write in with a quick question about the announcement of Knights of the Frozen Throne. Ben repeatedly mentioned that at the end you will find the Lich King; however, he pointedly never said the name Arthas despite the multiple opportunities to name the Lich King. This stuck out to me because he specifically named other bosses but not Arthas. As a fellow Arthas fan, I wanted to know Garrett's DEFCON level (1 is severe, 5 is relaxed) of concern that Arthas will not be the Lich King in the expansion.
