Hearthstone‘s second adventure, Blackrock Mountain, sounds like it will resemble Curse of Naxxramas a lot in terms of structure. But rewards won’t work exactly the same, a tweet by a Blizzard employee reveals. Senior Producer Yong Woo wrote that each hero will get two class-specific cards–not one–this time around. There is one common card and one rare card to be obtained:
Curse of Naxxramas gave us 21 neutral cards and 9 class-specific ones, earned through class challenges. Blackrock Mountain contains a total of 31 cards, thus only 13 will be neutral. Only one of each hero’s two class cards will be earned as a class challenge; the other is likely a boss reward.
This falls in line with yesterday’s two revealed cards. Some players were wondering why the Warrior’s Axe Flinger minion was common, while the Shaman’s Lava Shock spell was rare. It turns out that Warriors will get a rare card somewhere down the line, and Shamans a common one. As of yet, only three class-specific cards have been revealed, so it is impossible to establish whether each hero gets one spell and one minion, or any combination thereof.
Fewer neutral cards is a welcome change, at least to me. What do think about Blackrock Mountain‘s new reward system?
