PAX East 2015 – Blizzard Teases Elemental-Based Hearthstone Adventure

Our staff member, Benjamin Vogt (Lugia), noticed that the cards shuffled in the front page of the official Hearthstone website are curiously all Blackrock Mountain-themed cards, and they are also stored in the /hots/ folder (http://us.battle.net/hearthstone/static/images/hots/en-us/card-sprite.png):

  • Leeroy Jenkins (Upper Blackrock Spire)
  • Core Hound (Molten Core)
  • Dark Iron Dwarf (Blackrock Depths)
  • Magma Rager (Molten Core)

We are four days away from PAX East, with enough momentum going forward after Hearthpwn posted datamined strings hinting at a potential Blackrock Mountain-themed Adventure.

Just hours ago, Blizzard Entertainment also announced the March 2015 Ranked Play card back reward: Raging Ragnaros. Putting all these breadcrumbs together start to show at least an elemental-themed Adventure similar in taste to Curse of Naxxramas.
