Hearthstone's Latest Expansion Announced: Kobolds and Catacombs

Blizzard promises this mode will "send Hearthstone players on challenging, high-stakes subterranean adventures inspired by the classic fantasy dungeon crawl". When the Treasure Chest is broken, you get one of four treasures. Blizzard describes it as a "Hearthstone Roguelike".

First, there's Marin the Fox, a legendary card that every player will receive for free as long as they keep in mind to log in to Hearthstone on Monday, Nov. 6.

One of the new cards is the majorly powerful Warlock legendary Azari, the Dovourer.

Announced at the opening ceremony of BlizzCon 2017, the Dungeon Run mode of Hearthstone will give players an all-new single-player experience.

There's a new keyword: "recruit" which will see cards with the keyword pulling minions from your deck and dropping them into play.

End of Daylight Saving Time means an extra hour of sleep tonight
Daylight saving time is not observed by Arizona, Hawaii and four U.S. territories: American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. What's more, she said, all of our routines need to find that adjustment as well, including the time we usually eat and exercise.

The new cards for standard play in Hearthstone aren't messing around.

Kobolds & Catacombs card packs will be winnable in Hearthstone's Arena mode and players can purchase them with in-game gold or real money at the same prices as Hearthstone's other card packs. They also showed off a legendary weapon called Dragon Soul, which summons a dragon after casting three spells in a tour. A new hunter spell called Crushing Walls will destroy the left- and right-most minions of your opponent. The fact that each hero now gets legendary weapons, even my girl Jaina, means things are mixed up a lot.

New cards aren't the only additions to Kobolds & Catacombs; the expansion will also introduce the Dungeon Run, a special rogue-like single-player game mode that tasks players with fighting random boss monsters with limited decks.

A direct throwback to Tunnels and Trolls, the single player PnP RPG from way back when and recently revived in MetaArcade, Kobolds and Catacombs launch next month. You'll start with a deck of only ten cards (pulled from your own collection), and as you defeat bosses, you'll earn new cards to progress with.

There are also a number of unsafe passive cards being slotted into the mix, which you can see in the gallery at the bottom of the article along with all of the other newly-announced cards from BlizzCon 2017 so far...
