It’s been one hell of a year for Hearthstone fans—and the fun is far from over. The Old Gods are returning with Madness at the Darkmoon Faire, the game’s upcoming expansion.

The latest card to join the expansion is Hammer of the Naaru, a six-cost Paladin weapon with three Attack, three Durability, and a Battlecry. It reads, “Summon a 6/6 Holy Elemental with Taunt.”

The iconic weapon, found in Gruul’s Lair in WoW’s The Burning Crusade expansion, is a strong addition to the Paladin class. It offers a 6/6 Taunt and a 3/3 weapon for just six mana.

Realistically, Hammer of the Naaru should cater to long and drawn out matches, with decks like Control Paladin in mind. But it could also fit into midrange decks, banking on tempo and reinforcement from low-cost minions.

Hearthstone’s upcoming Madness at the Darkmoon Faire expansion is scheduled to release on Nov. 17. Fans can pre-order the expansion today, though, in one of two bundles from Blizzard’s online store.
