Hearthstone scholomance Academy: Blizzard has finally announced the very first details regarding their upcoming Hearthstone expansion, Scholomance Academy.
The reveal was made in a press release by Blizzard Entertainment. It is the expansion of the smash-hit digital card game, Hearthstone. Also, the Students will be encountering 135 all completely new cards. These cards are designed to supercharge the game with sorcerous synergies and great displays of the arcane splendor.
However, some consider that Scholomance is the most famous school of magic in Warcraft. Well, it is not surprising that the expansion is going to focus on the spell cards of Hearthstone. Also, the expansion is going to introduce a new keyword known as the Spellburst. Also, the Spellburst keyword will be triggering an additional effect the next time the players cast a spell.
The Gameplay: Scholomance Academy
The most interesting part is that Scholomance Academy is going to feature the return of the multi-class concept. This concept was seen in the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan expansion. Blizzard also said that they are going to design a dual-class cards. This will help in order to ensure that they grouped the classes that generally share the similar strategies and mechanics. Therefore, that should help balance this multi-class concept around this time.
Well, at the top of these 70 dual class cards, 10 Legendary professor minions will be also available for the unique class pairings. These were featured in the dual-class cards.
Finally, Scholomance Academy will also be featuring a new type of Discover card. This new card is known as Studies cards. These Stadia cards will allow you to pick one between three cards. This is usually what you would do with the Discover mechanic. The main twist comes when the Studies cards will automatically decrease the mana cost. The cost is reduced for the upcoming card that you will use that matches the type of card which you have recently discovered.
The expected launch of Scholomance Academy is expected to take place in the month of August. However, it will be available for pre-order before the launch.
