Argent Tournament Spotlight: Grand Tournament Card Origins
2015/08/27 at 5:45 PM
Many of you are probably playing the Grand Tournament this week in Hearthstone, so we're taking a closer look at the Argent Tournament which inspired all of the new cards. A few weeks ago, we covered the
Argent Tournament Rewards
, but this post primarily looks at the specific references to each card--the
Trial of the Crusader
raid, jousting, dailies, and more.
If you're not playing Hearthstone, this can be a fun nostalgia trip--or perhaps you'll learn something new if you've started playing after Wrath of the Lich King!
To learn more about the Grand Tournament, check out our
coverage on Hearthhead

Dalaran Spotlight: Wrath and Legion Player Hub
2015/08/24 at 1:51 PM
Over the weekend, Senior Designer Jeremy Feasel asked players what sorts of quirky details they'd like to see in Dalaran 2.0 coming in
There were some great replies, and this also sent us down a nostalgia trip to
in Wrath of the Lich King. Here's some of the details in Dalaran 1.0 that made it stand out as a capital city in Wrath of the Lich King. What sort of fun stuff or throwback Wrath references would you like to see in Legion's version of Dalaran?
Dalaran is a magocratic city-state and was once located within the Alterac Mountains in the Eastern Kingdoms. Now, the city, including the Violet Citadel, resides above the Crystalsong Forest in Northrend. The top part of the city is sparkling and airy, while the sewers underground show the darker side of magic addiction and luxury. The city is neutral, with enclaves for both the Alliance and Horde.
