King Rastakhan is now accepting contenders, and Hearthstone Lead Initial Designer Peter Whalen and Hearthstone streamer RegisKillbin have volunteered by kicking off card reveals for Rastakhan’s Rumble, the upcoming Hearthstone expansion!
Thirteen new, mojo-filled cards were revealed during the stream, including two Legendary troll champions and the Mage loa Jan’alai and her accompanying Spirit card.
- Zentimo – The Shaman Legendary minion and champion of Krag’wa’s Frogs
The witch doctor is mysterious, quiet, and more than a little unsettling. Whenever he’s on the board, the player’s targeted spells also splash to adjacent minions.
- High Priestess Jeklik – The Warlock Legendary minion and champion of Hir’eek’s Bats
The High Priestess—quite proudly—revels in the boos she gets from the crowd as she takes to the arena. In addition to possessing Taunt and Lifesteal, she adds two copies of herself to the player’s hand if she’s discarded.
- Jan’alai, the Dragonhawk – The Mage Legendary minion and loa
The great dragonhawk’s Battlecry summons Ragnaros the Firelord if the player has dealt eight damage with their Hero Power during the game. In order to accomplish this magnificent feat, players can enlist the help of Jan’alai’s accompanying Spirit, Spirit of the Dragonhawk. While on the board, this Spirit allows the player’s Hero Power to splash to adjacent minions.
Blizard have also posted a schedule of when you can expect new cards to be revealed, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!
