Hearthstone: Journey to Un’Goro is another expansion for free-to-play card game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft for PC / Windows. It comes from creators of base game, Blizzard Entertainment studio. Add-on takes us on another journey to the land of Azeroth, known from Warcraft series and World of Warcraft. This time we venture into Un’Goro Crater – an exotic location from the said MMO. Players are given 135 more cards, another ability called Adapt, completely new card type (Quest) and many other features. Its release also brought second season of Standard format called Year of the Mammoth.

Plot

The lore of Hearthstone: Journey to Un’Goro focuses on the jungle that covers most of titular Un’Goro Crater. It is untouched by civilization and filled with unique species of fauna and flora, not to mention wild energy of magical elementals. An expedition of young explorers set on to traverse this fascinating land, led by Night Elf Elise Starseeker, which players might remember from The League of Explorers expansion.

Game mechanics

PC / Windows’s version of Hearthstone:Journey to Un’Goro introduces many novelties, with the most important being: 135 cards, new minion (Elemental), keyword (special ability of minion) called Adapt and card type (Quest). There is also game board with Un’Goro theme and card back called Fossil.

Newly introduced cards include shaman’s Volcano, which bombards all minions on the battlefield with fireballs till total of 15 damage is done. Another interesting addition is fire bird Pyros, who like mythical phoenix returns from dead to our deck as more powerful and expensive unit. It is one of Elementals, a type added in this expansion that consists not only of new cards, but also some older minions.

Ability of Adapt (new keyword) lets players enhance one of selected minion’s aspects. After activating Adapt we can choose one of three improvements, randomly selected from the total pool of ten. Those include appearing two plant minions with attack and defense equaling 1 after strengthen minion’s death, giving it immunity to spells and special abilities, Provocation or Divine Shield or simply increasing its attack.

Quest is a new card type that works similarly to Secret. Due to their legendary status, only one such card can be added to a deck. However, it will always appear in our hand at the beginning of the game, which means we can work on activating it instantly. Each Quest has specific requirements and effect after fulfilling them. After playing, for example, Awaken of the Makers (which costs one mana point) from our deck we are given the task of summoning seven minions with Agony. After that, we receive Amara, Warden of Hope, a powerful card with 8/8 statistics, Provocation and Battlecry that sets our health at 40 points.

Miscellaneous

With the release of Journey to the Un’Goro for PC / Windows, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft reached the end of Year of the Kraken and started Year of the Mammoth. This means that players can no longer use cards from some of the older sets in the so called Standard format. With that, anything from expansions Blackrock Mountain, The Grand Tournament and The League of Explorers can only be played in the Wild.
