Players have visited many famous (and some infamous) locations with recent Hearthstone expansions. Blizzard is now adding the dinosaur haven Un’Goro Crater to the list thanks to the upcoming expansion Journey to Un’Goro.
The Journey to Un’Goro expansion will add 135 new cards, including minions, spells, and a few new surprises. Since dinosaurs are among Un’Goro Crater’s biggest and most numerous residents, they are at the forefront of the expansion, and many will have the “Adapt” ability.
Adapt is a new mechanic that powers up a minion. Whenever Adapt activates, a player picks one of three random Adaptation cards and uses it to buff the minion in question. Examples of Adaptations include increased attack, a divine shield, and immunity to spells and powers.
Furthermore, Un’Goro Crater is also home to various elementals, which means the Journey to Un’Goro expansion will also introduce the new Elemental minion type. Many new minions (and some old ones) will contain this new minion type.
When Journey to Un’Goro launches, players will finally be able to complete quests thanks to Quest cards. Each Quest card is of Legendary rarity and is guaranteed to be in a player’s opening hand. Quests are completed by fulfilling certain tasks, such as summoning a set number of minions with Deathrattle abilities. Players who fulfill their quests will gain powerful rewards, such as seemingly overpowered minions.
Journey to Un’Goro will release sometime in April, but Blizzard plans to reveal more new cards starting March 17th and players can already pre-order 50 Journey to Un’Goro card packs for $49.99, securing them an exclusive cardback.
