With the release of The Witchwood now firmly in the rear-view mirror, Hearthstone players are being given another chance to claim some free cards.
The Noblegarden event will arrive in game next week, bringing free cards for every player and a special seasonal Tavern Brawl.
Grab a basket and prepare your finest brushes,” the announcement reads. “because Noblegarden is coming next week! Noblegarden is a festival where we gather to celebrate the joys of life and friendship by in-egg-splicably dyeing eggs in bright colors and hanging out with rabbits. It’s gonna be egg-cellent!”
Sounds kind of familiar right? Eggs and rabbits make you think of Easter, which of course was a few weeks ago now. But Azeroth does tend to do things differently from the real world.
Every player who logs in on May 9 to 13 will receive golden copies of two cards—Eggnapper and Devilsaur Egg. Both cards are part of the Journey to Un’Goro set and have seen some limited play in niche decks, most notably Aggro Druid previously.
The announcement also hints at a festive game board and some in-game decoration. The game’s heroes will also greet each other with the spirit of the season.
In the special Tavern Brawl, it’s all about eggs too. An egg will spawn on your board each turn, and the unique cards in your deck will allow you to “decorate” it. Those decorations give it different buffs and abilities, and when they hatch you can use them to kill your opponent. It’s called “Everybunny Get In Here”, which is funny enough to make the whole event worth it.
