Tomorrow’s Patch Introduces Card Backs, The Hearthsteed and More

by - 8 years ago

Along with aforementioned changes to Nat Pagle, Tinkmaster Overspark and Ranked Play Mode, tomorrow’s patch will also bring with it the long rumored Hearthsteed, a Hearthstone mount for World of Warcraft players. HearthPwn posted datamined information on that and other quest rewards going live tomorrow:

Golden Malfurion Stormrage Win 500 Ranked games with Malfurion Stormrage. Golden Hero Portrait
Golden Rexxar Win 500 Ranked games with Rexxar. Golden Hero Portrait
Golden Jaina Proudmoore Win 500 Ranked games with Jaina Proudmoore. Golden Hero Portrait
Golden Uther Lightbringer Win 500 Ranked games with Uther Lightbringer. Golden Hero Portrait
Golden Anduin Wrynn Win 500 Ranked games with Anduin Wrynn. Golden Hero Portrait
Golden Valeera Sanguinar Win 500 Ranked games with Valeera Sanguinar. Golden Hero Portrait
Golden Thrall Win 500 Ranked games with Thrall. Golden Hero Portrait
Golden Gul’dan Win 500 Ranked games with Gul’dan. Golden Hero Portrait
Golden Garrosh Hellscream Win 500 Ranked games with Garrosh Hellscream. Golden Hero Portrait
Greater Reaper of Packs Your Diablo III Reaper of Souls Collector’s Edition comes with 2 packs. 2 Card Packs
Mount Up! A special reward for your third win! Log in to World of Warcraft to claim it! Hearthsteed
You are Legend Welcome to the Hearthstone Elite! Show it off with your Legendary Card Back! Legends Card Back
Fireside Friends Hearthstone is better with friends! Enjoy the company, and your new card back! Launch Card Back
Reaper of Packs Your Diablo III Reaper of Souls comes with 1 pack. 1 Card Pack

The golden hero portraits are no surprise, having been alluded to last week. They will absolutely require a bunch of time to grind out and we advise pacing yourself. Those pre-ordering Diablo III’s expansion Reaper of Souls will receive either one or two card packs, depending on which copy they pick up.

The datamined information also explains in more detail just what players will have to do in order to obtain unique card backs. Most of the requirements seem fairly straightforward:

Name Source
Default Creating an account
Pandaria Participating in Ranked Season 1
Black Temple Participating in a Ranked Season
Charm Participating in a Ranked Season
Launch Achievement: Fireside Friends
Legend Achievement: You are legend

It’s unclear as to whether or not tomorrow’s patch will officially herald the retail release of Hearthstone, but regardless there will definitely be a lot of goodies for us to get into.

    I felt extremely guilty shelling (I’m such a sucker) out for the Reaper of Souls collectors edition, so the card packs is actually kind of a nice surprise.
