Team Hearthstone today unveiled the game’s first “mini-set” – The Darkmoon Races, which is a collection of 35 new cards that will arrive in the game on January 21 in NA (January 22 in Asia-Pacific). Typically, the Hearthstone team releases three major card games each year, with balance adjustments and special events in between to help keep the game fresh, so this mid-meta card injection represents a big boost. new approach. Cards feature mechanics from all three sets released during the Year of the Phoenix – Ashes of Outland, Scholomance Academy, and Madness at the Darkmoon Faire – meaning more dual-class cards, dormant minions, magic effects and cards that can be corrupted. The set as a whole contains four legendary cards, one epic, 14 rare cards, and 16 commons and you can see them all below.
