Following the announcement of an important patch to the game, the online community has been speculating about the reveal of a brand new Hearthstone expansion for weeks. Today, it is time to unleash the magic within as Scholomance Academy will be Hearthstone’s next enchanting expansion.
Set before the rise of the Cult of the Damned, a group of humans who swore fealty to the Lich King, Scholomance Academy will invite players to the fabled college of magic, a setting that will be strikingly familiar to seasoned World of Warcraft players. Here, knowledge is power and the students are brimming with magical potential, despite the burgeoning rumours of the vile things that lurk beneath the school grounds (including fan-favourite Rattlegore).
Enrollment in Scholomance Academy will allow Hearthstone players access to 135 brand new cards, including some staggering new abilities, encouraging sorcerous new strategies on the battlefield,
DO A DOUBLE MAJOR – Scholomance Academy introduces 40 new Dual-Class Cards, which are usable by two classes. Every Hearthstone class is paired with two others—for a total of 10 combinations—and the cards for every Dual-Class pairing are designed to encourage strategies and highlight mechanics shared by both.
CARDS BURSTING WITH POTENTIAL – Minion and weapon cards with the new keyword Spellburst will trigger a powerful one-time-only effect the next time you cast a spell.
HIT THE BOOKS – Studies are new spells that allow you to Discover a card immediately and also reduce the mana cost of the next card of that type you play. In Scholomance, your dedicated study is rewarded with power!
The Scholomance Academy Mega Bundle is available for $79.99 USD, which includes 80 Scholomance Academy card packs, five bonus Scholomance Academy Golden Card Packs, one random Scholomance Academy Golden Legendary card, the Kel’Thuzad Mage Hero, the Kel’Thuzad card back, and a Tavern Pass, which includes 4 Arena tickets.
The Scholomance Academy Pre-Purchase Bundle is also available for $49.99 USD, which includes 55 Scholomance Academy packs, one random Scholomance Academy Golden Legendary Card, and the Kel’Thuzad card back.
