For the collectible card game Hearthstone, the big content update “Divided by Alterac” has been released. The patch added 135 new maps based on the battle in the legendary location of World of Warcraft, which is a symbol of the confrontation between the Horde and the Alliance. Also, from this moment, players can choose a side and participate in events.
After choosing a faction, it is possible to receive the corresponding golden legendary card: the elder shaman Drek’Thar from the Horde, or the mountain king Vandar Stormpike from the Alliance. Users can then earn honor points up until January 11th by participating in ranked matches, as well as fighting in the Arena or in the “Duel” mode. At the end of the event, a mini-set will be released and all players will receive a diamond legendary card for the leader of the faction with the highest number of honor points.
To improve the win rate, players can also use new creatures, weapons or spells with the new Honorable Victory property. The latter gives the card an additional effect, and if it deals exactly the amount of damage that is necessary to kill the creature on the current turn. Mercenaries can also help win the match, as with the patch they have become powerful hero cards.
