Hearthstone‘s latest expansion, Descent of Dragons, is now live, highlighting the culmination of the epic battle between the League of Explorers and the League of E.V.I.L., along with the requisite new cards and new mechanics.
As you might expect, dragons are the theme of the set, with many cards having strong synergy with dragons, whether in your hand or in play. The centerpiece of the set is Galakrond, a legendary hero card with versions for five classes. The Invoke keyword boosts Galakrond’s power when he finally comes into play, and there are Dragon’s Breath cards that have greater effects if you’re holding a dragon in your hand. Another new feature are side quests, which offer smaller tasks and rewards than the traditional quest cards.
You can log in right now to receive the five legendary Galakrond cards for free, along with two Shield of Galakrond cards. In addition, there’s a new line of quests that grant card packs from the last three expansions and 200 Gold. The final solo adventure of the series, Galakrond’s Awakening, will hit servers in January.
