Journey to Un'Goro features new 'Adapt' and 'Quest' mechanics

Azeroth's finest scholars and explorers have today begun preparing for Journey to Un'Goro, the new expansion coming to Hearthstone, Blizzard Entertainment's smash-hit digital card game, in April Those courageous or at least curious enough to embark on an expedition to a land of primordial wonder will encounter ancient elementals, frightening flora, and some of the fiercest predators to ever inhabit Azeroth-all while unearthing 135 new Hearthstone cards to add to their collections!

Beginning tomorrow, you will be able to pre-purchase 50 Journey to Un'Goro card packs for $49.99 Dollars and receive the Fossil card pack. The expansion was just announced through a video recently uploaded to YouTube, with Ben Brode wanting to nerf everything before showing off the expansion's trailer. Elementals are a new minion type coming to Hearthstone, with both new cards and already existing ones like Magma Rager taking on the new type alongside dragons, pirates, and beasts.

Another new card type, Quest, will always be in your opening hand, and always only costs 1 Mana.

Lightning trade Brian Boyle to Maple Leafs
Boyle has 13 goals, nine assists and 22 points in 54 games with the Lightning this season to go along with 48 penalty minutes. In addition to the deal, the Lightning will assign forward Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond to the Toronto Marlies.

We'll be keeping an eye out for new card spoilers in the run up to the expansion's release, starting on March 17th, leading up to its release in early April.

"Each Quest will have prerequisites listed on it-should you complete them, you'll be granted incredible rewards!" If you do this you also get the Fossil card pack. Careful, though: the damage is split randomly among all minions, meaning yours could be hurt as well. This priest-only quest challenges a player to summon seven minions with Deathrattle effects.

Quest cards will also be making their debut in Journey to Un'Goro. To see the value of this kind of thing, look at Druid of the Claw: a 4/6 Taunt or a 4/4 with Charge are not overwhelmingly great choices by themselves, but the fact that you can choose which one you want at the given moment makes the card worth more than the sum of its parts. Volcano will deal a total of 15 damage to all minions on the board, similar to a Paladin's Avenging Wrath spell. And the hand buffing and Jade styles of play in Mean Streets of Gadgetzan introduced new mechanics without a new keyword.

A Windows tablet with stylus by Samsung — Samsung Galaxy Book
There's a 13-megapixel camera with autofocus and a flash on the back, and on the front there's a 5-megapixel shooter for selfies. The Samsung smartphone, like the predecessor Galaxy S7, will offer support for Samsung Pay and is also secured by Samsung Knox.

In keeping with the idea of prehistoric creatures evolving to become more powerful, some of Un'Goro's minions will be able to "Adapt". When Un'Goro launches in April, it will also start the Year of the Mammoth. Rumor has it that previous explorers left some unfinished business in Un'Goro-daunting quest cards that, should you complete their requirements, grant rewards of monstrous power.

The new expansion also marks the retirement of last season's expansions and adventures, Blackrock Mountain, The Grand Tournament and League of Explorers.
