Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Announced, Official Press Release, FAQ, and Artwork
2013/03/22 at 9:00 AM
Today at PAX East, Blizzard announced that they have had a fifth team working on another game. Comprised of fifteen developers, the idea was to make a great game that got back to Blizzard's roots by having something fun and less serious.
The game is called Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft and it is an online strategy card game.
The official website is now live
so are the beta sign-ups
. You can also follow them on Twitter at
Hearthstone is "a charming collective strategy card game set in the Warcraft universe." You can play as nine different mighty heroes with different focuses. There will be commons, rares, epics, and even legendary cards. It will be free-to-play with optional purchases for cards; there's also something called a crafting system, where you will be able to change your cards by disenchanting them into arcane dust which will let you build other cards.

25-Player Raid Changes: Thunderforged Items Coming to the PTR Soon
2013/01/23 at 11:13 AM
Blizzard just posted a head's up on Thunderforged items--explaining what these higher quality items are and how they will drop in both normal and heroic modes. They should be hitting the PTR soon for the community to check out!
These items have a chance to drop from 5.2 raid bosses and will have a higher chance to drop in 25s. Ever since Cataclysm, 25-player raiding has steadily declined in popularity, so hopefully this will be an incentive for players to stick with the format.
Coming to the PTR in the near future will be a new designation of item type in Normal and Heroic raids for non-tier pieces. Each 5.2 raid boss will have a chance of dropping this new designation of a particular item that’s 6 item levels higher than their counterparts. These higher quality versions will be called “Thunderforged”. This means that there will be five variations of some items. You’ll now see a 5.2 raid item of LFR quality at item level 502, the same item in Normal quality at item level 522, the item in Normal Thunderforged quality at item level 528, the Heroic version of the item at level 535, and the Heroic Thunderforged version of the item at level
