The guys and girls over at Blizzard Entertainment have released a new update for their free-to-play trading card game Hearthstone. Among many other things, the patch brings new card backs to the online game. The Tyrande card back is a special reward for those players that get their friends to join the TCG. The Legion and Pie card backs are rewards for achieving Rank 20 in the competitive season for September and October respectively.
Naturally, that is not everything that players should expect from the latest game update. It also introduces the Priest Hero called Tyrande Whisperwind to the online game. She is the chosen high priestess of the goddess Elune and leads the night elves together with the Archdruid Malfurion Stormrage. Accordingly, she not only played a major role in WarCraft 3, but also in the MMORPG World of Warcraft. Players can choose her in the free-to-play MOBA Heroes of the Storm. Now, this hero is finally making her way to Hearthstone. Players can receive her in the same way that they can get her card back.
Aside from making some bigger and smaller changes to several cards, such as removing a few from the Arena Mode, the patch adds a Welcome Bundle to the online game. It features 10 Classic card packs and a random Classic Class Legendary from the first generation. Players can purchase it for $4.99. The bundle might be a great way for newbies to build a solid deck of Classic cards, especially considering that they will receive at least one legendary card.
