Blizzard could have WoW’s Enhancement Shaman in mind with the latest card revealed for Madness at the Darkmoon Faire, Hearthstone’s upcoming expansion. The specialization uses one-handed weapons to deal damage instead of casting spells.
Deathmatch Pavilion is a two-cost Shaman card that summons a 3/2 Duelist. If your hero attacked this turn, however, summon another one.
In the game’s current form, Deathmatch Pavilion is a little awkward. Shaman, unlike Warrior or Rogue, has very few weapons to speak of and favor spells, totems, and minions instead.
If Blizzard is focusing on a possible Enhancement deck, though, more weapons will likely be joining the game in the week leading up to the expansion.
If that’s the case and Shaman does get a few more weapons to play with, then Deathmatch Pavilion will be a formidable card. With a weapon equipped, two mana for two 3/2 Duelists is quite the bargain.
Madness at the Darkmoon Faire gets underway on Nov. 17. Fans can pre-order the expansion today in one of two different bundles from Blizzard’s online store.
