Whispers of the Old Gods, Hearthstone's latest expansion, features 134 new collectible cards. Logging in on or before July 5 will grant players three free card packs containing cards from the new set, as well as three additional cards: one copy of the new legendary minion C'Thun, along with two copies of Beckoner of Evil. A further ten free card packs are available for completing special quests during the launch event. Note that new players will have to complete the "First Blood" and "The Duelist" quests before receiving these bonuses.
This sinister expansion revolves around the dark influence of the Old Gods, ancient and unspeakably evil creatures that have long lain hidden, imprisoned in the dark places of the world millennia ago. Despite their imprisonment, these shadowy beings' influence can be felt in every corner of Azeroth, twisting and corrupting any who hear their maddening whispers. With an army of followers performing forbidden empowerment rituals, the tentacles of these massive horrors are growing rapidly toward the light, eager to bring their own kind of excitement to the sunlit kingdoms and merry taverns of Azeroth.
The expansion features legendary minion cards for each of the four Old Gods - C'Thun, Yogg-Saron, N'Zoth and Y'Shaarj - along with a crowd of frenzied cultists working overtime to empower these mighty horrors in preparation for their return. The expansion will also see some familiar faces corrupted into frightening new forms, as well as new scaling effects in the form of Forbidden spells.
