Almost all of the new legendary weapon cards arriving in Hearthstone have been revealed, and Paladin is next in line.

All nine of the game's classes will receive a legendary weapon in this next expansion, alongside the usual legendary minion.

Val'anyr is a six mana weapon with four attack and two durability—the same stat line as Truesilver Champion.

It also has a very powerful effect. Its Deathrattle gives a minion in your hand +4/+2. When that minion is played and dies, Val'anyr is automatically reequipped.

That is pretty crazy levels of value. Truesilver Champion is four mana, so even if you can have this weapon reequipped once it's getting good value without even mentioning the stat buff. It's also a good counter to weapon destruction—sure you lose the initial two swings, but it also sets you on the road to resummoning it.

Kobolds and Catacombs comes out in the U.S. next Thursday (Dec. 7).
