Hearthstone’s Scholomance Academy expansion launches in August
Blizzard has unveiled Scholomance Academy, the next expansion for Hearthstone.
The expansion is due to release in early August and will introduce a total of 135 new cards to the game. 40 of these new cards are Dual-Class cards, which can be used by two classes with a total of 10 combinations. An example is Shan’do Wildclaw who can be used by Hunters and Druids and either gives all Beasts in the deck +1/+1 or transforms into a copy of a friendly Beast.
There’s also a new keyword called Spellburst, which is a one-time only effect that triggers when playing a spell, and Studies, new spells that let players discover a card immediately and reduce the mana card of the next card played of the same type.
Scholomance Academy is available to pre-purchase now in either a Standard or Mega Bundle. The Mega Bundle contains 85 Scholomance Academy card packs, one random Scholomance Academy Golden Legendary card, the Kel’Thuzad Mage Hero, the Kel’Thuzad card back, and a Tavern Pass, which includes 4 Arena tickets.
