Blackrock Mountain will finally release tomorrow, which means that the Goblins Vs. Gnomes Meta Block has finally come to its end. With that said, today its a good day as ever to take a look at how GvG changed the game.
Goblins vs. Gnomes has been out for a week now and our BlizzPro team have been playing and discussing the new cards all week. One of the toughest questions asked is “Hey, I have enough dust for a legendary, which one should I craft?” We’re only focusing on the legendary cards in Goblins vs. Gnomes and after many discussions, edits, bribes, and several fights we think we have come up with our top 5 legendary cards to craft in Goblins vs. Gnomes. Vol’Jin Vol’Jin was unanimous as the top choice among our team. I dislike putting a class legendary at number 1 simply for the fact that I feel a top legendary should be something many different decks could use (think Ragnaros). However, it’s hard to argue how good Vol’Jin is and why he gets the number 1 spot. He singlehandedly takes priest from a good spot in the meta
With a few days to go until the release of Goblins vs. Gnomes, Blizzard has unleashed the cards onto the Arena in the live game as a preview for the expansion. This, along with a patch that adds Spectator mode and contains the previously-announced changes to Flare, Gadgetzan Auctioneer and Soulfire, should all be live as we speak, so get on it! The Arena mischief comes with a free ticket into the Arena, so don’t even worry about not having the gold. Read the full patch notes below. Thanks to a bit of meddlesome tinkering—and perhaps a little goblin-induced sabotage—all Goblins vs Gnomes cards are now available to choose from in the Arena! You heard that right—those pesky pint-sized engineers (being an impatient bunch) have jury-rigged the Arena to give Hearthstone players a sneak peek at what’s in store when Goblins vs Gnomes officially launches next week. In doing so,
All of the Goblins vs. Gnomes cards have been revealed (we’re working on updating our spoiler list ASAP), and as expected the release date has been announced. You will be able to play the new expansion this upcoming Monday December 8. The expansion will be available on Mac, PC, and iPad. Sorry Android users, you still have a small amount of time before the game is released for you (but will be sometime this month). Just like the current system GvG packs will be available for purchase with real money,in game gold, or you can craft the cards with dust. Also, all arena reward packs will be converted to GvG packs. Included in GvG will also be the long awaited Spectator Mode. The recently announced nerfs should also go in Monday as well.

The Light was strong in the final round of the Hearthstone Goblins vs. Gnome vote reveal and Bolvar Fordragon edged Mal’ganis quite comfortably in this last round of voting. The Title Quote is quite fitting, and it comes from Bolvar himself as he asks Tirion Fording to place the Helm of Domination over his head and make him the new Lich King. If you ever cleared ICC in World of Warcraft you probably remember the exchange… Tirion: “You will not be forgotten, brother.” Bolvar: “ I must be forgotten, Tirion! If the world is to live free from the tyranny of fear, they must never know what was done here today!” But that’s all WoW, what will happen in Hearthstone? Personally, while this card of course has a lot of potential to end up being nasty. I don’t think it’s going to be reliable enough. Sure if Bolvar starts in
Check out the druid’s newest 5-drop courtesy of Polygon. Like many cards on the Druid’s Arsenal, the Druid of the Fang comes in two flavors. Vanilla 4/4 , or Beastly 7/7. Is a 7/7 body enough to warrant having more beasts in a Druid Deck? Maybe the answer lies in some of the cards have yet to be revealed. Meanwhile, feel free to voice your opinion using the comment section.
Wow, I am Speechless. I’m not the only one, the first reaction I saw out of several internet circles is quite simple, OP! Now, it’s completely possible than we are just collectively overreacting, but look at what this little Goblin does. You can now spend 2 mana crystals to deal 2 damage to either your opponent or any minion on the board, including yours. The Priest’ Shadowform allows you the same benefit, but it costs 3 mana and doesn’t leave a body on the board. This would be more like a mini Auchenai Soulpriest without the circle of healing combos. With both the Shadowform Comparison and the possibility to play a control Hunter, there’s no much surprise to the first reaction that this card got. But while leaving a 2/3 body on the board can be a big advantage early game, it is also the Sniper’s biggest drawback. If the
Randomness has been a huge theme in Goblins vs. Gnomes, so it's unlikely that many people were too surprised when Gosugamers revealed this new Shaman Card. Not only does this card go well with the overall randomness of GvG but it also follows two already established Shaman mechanics.
Love it or hate it, ever since Naxx came out Deathrattle decks have gotten a lot more prominent. Undertaker is such a good card, with the potential to really take over games with the correct hand. But whether you are a fan of the mechanic or not, Goblins vs. Gnomes is poised to turn the meta upside down. While Feign Death is an extremely powerful card for Deathrattle decks, Lil’ Exoricist and the Scarlet Purifier are here to even out the odds. Who do you think got the best part of the deal? Let us know your opinion on these three cards revealed today in the official Hearthstone blog. Also, remember to check out all the 50+ cards revealed thus far in our complete spoiler list.
