“Hearthstone” Releases Details For Hallow’s End: Doom In The Tomb

This week, Blizzard revealed the details of the Halloween-themed event coming to Hearthstone as we all experience Hallow’s End: Doom In The Tomb. The short version of the event is that you and whatever heroes or E.V.I.L. villains you can muster together to uncover Uldum’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the aforementioned tomb. The spooky spelunking adventures kick off on October 8th at 10am PDT, and end on October 30th at 9am PDT. Here’s the full details of what’s to come from Blizzard themselves, along with some pics of the new cards you’ll get to be dealing with.

Treasures from the Tomb!

23 cards from across Hearthstone history have been unsealed from Wild and unleashed by the Headless Horseman! Until our next major update, these cards are stepping out of Wild and will be playable in Standard matches. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action.

These cards will be considered “event” cards, which essentially means that they’re temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards, you’ll still receive these event copies. When the event ends they’ll disappear, just like the Headless Horseman himself!

Dual-Class Arenas:

The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s End dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.

    • Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation.
    • To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, weeks 1 and 2 of this event will award Arena Tickets on login!

This event will also coincide with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation will be as follows:

      • Saviors of Uldum
      • Rastakhan’s Rumble
      • Kobolds and Catacombs
      • Journey to Un’Goro
      • League of Explorers
      • Basic
      • Standard

Hex & Flex Bundles:

Hex Bundle:

    • If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD.

Flex Bundle:

    • Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD.

Legendary Quests and Login Rewards

Begin your Quest:

  • A new Legendary Doom in the Tomb quest* will be unlocked at the start of each week during the event, in addition to your normal daily quests. These new quests will reward you with either card packs from one of the current standard sets, or a hefty sum of Gold!
  • Legendary quests will replace an existing normal quest if your quest log is full, so we recommend that you have a spot open when this event goes live.

Legendary Login Rewards:

  • Login any time during the event (10/8-10/30) to earn a bundle of 5 Hearthstone card packs!
    • 2 Saviors of Uldum packs
    • 2 Rise of Shadows packs
