The four new skins that are available to purchase are inspired by an ancient epic Chinese tale of war, Romance of the Three Kingdoms. They’ll be available to purchase from Feb. 9 to 19. The four classes receiving skins, and the characters they represent from the tale, are as follows:

  • Zhuge Liang Anduin (Priest)
  • Guan Yu Uther (Paladin)
  • Diao Chan Valeera (Rogue)
  • Lü Bu Garrosh (Warrior)

The skins can either be purchased individually for $9.99 or in two bundles:

  • Three Kingdoms Hero Bundle ($24.99)
    • Zhuge Liang Anduin, Guan Yu Uther, Diao Chan Valeera, Lü Bu Garrosh
  • Three Kingdoms Mini Bundle ($14.99)
    • Diao Chan Valeera, Lü Bu Garrosh

The Lunar Blessing Tavern Brawl is set to make its second appearance in Hearthstone. During this Brawl, players choose a class, receive a random deck, and then choose an animal to receive its benefits throughout the match.

You can experience the Lunar New Year event in Hearthstone when it begins on Feb. 9.
