Blizzard recently revealed that the new Hearthstone expansion will be named Gadgetzan
SImular to the Goblins vrs Gnomes expansion, where the cards released belong to either the Goblin or Gnomes faction, the Gadgetzan expansion will too involve factions. This time, there will be 3 factions, where the class cards for certain classes will belong to either the “Grimy Goons”, “Kabal” or “Jade Lotus. It is unsure if the cards in each faction will boost each other, or have any benefit (eg. Murlocs or Mech).
- Grimy Goons: Hunter, Paladin, Warrior
- Kabal: Mage, Priest, Warlock
- Jade Lotus: Druid, Rogue, Shaman
This expansion also introduces the new idea of “muilti-class cards”, where some minions considered to be “neutral”, are actually applied to certain factions (Grimy goons, Kabal and Jade Lotus). This will be interesting, as changes to the game, and the strength of these cards will be very hard for Blizzard to balance, but will bring a whole new wave of decks.
