New Features and updates for Hearthstone
Moreover, Blizzard revealed some of the new features in development:
- Hearthstone’s quest system changes daily, allowing players to complete quests and earn gold.
- Introduction of gold as a currency players can earn and spend to purchase card packs or entry into The Forge. (Cards can still be disenchanted into Arcane Dust to craft cards.)
- Leveling up as a specific class will earn you basic class-specific cards, and eventually you’ll earn snazzy golden versions of those cards. Players will earn experience whether they win or lose.
- Players can now challenge their friends to a duel by adding them to an in-game friends list.
Here there is an example of how the team keep improving and updating the cards: originally Onyxia’s power was “Whenever you draw a card, deal 2 damage to ALL characters.” These days, she is terrorizing players everywhere with her new ability, “Battlecry: Summon 1/1 Whelps until your side of the battlefield is full.”
