Can’t wait to get your hands on Hearthstone’s Goblins vs. Gnomes cards? You don’t have to!

The GvG cards are now available for selection in Hearthstone’s arena mode, where you’ll get your first chance to sample the new cards in a live-fire environment. As an added bonus, your next Arena run before the expansion launches on Dec. 8 is free, and Spectator Mode has been implemented, so you’ll be free to make fun of, er watch and carefully advise your friends on their choices.

A few cards have had their costs tweaked as well with this patch: Soulfire now costs 1, Flare 2, and Gadgetzan Auctioneer 6, and a number of bug fixes have been applied.

You can get the full details here, or just jump in and start playing — but don’t blame us if something blows up in your face!

    Since you can unlock all the content for free it’s f2p. Lokui is just a millennial.

      When he says no one cares he means no one in his universe. Since he doesn’t have any friends, he’s the only one he knows. So yeah, no one cares.
