Hearthstone Lunar New Year offers Free packs and a variety of cosmetic bundles. Check all about this celebration.
The time has come to celebrate Hearthstone’s Lunar New Year. As usual, players will have access to a Legendary Quest chain to get up to six free Hearthstone packs. Moreover, Hearthstone is offering special Lunar New Year cosmetics for Battlegrounds and Constructed. Join me in the celebration.
Free Hearthstone Packs with Lunar New Year
The Lunar New Year will start on February 2nd, it will last for 2 weeks and will offer Hearthstone players a variety of perks and special events. One of the most awaited is the Legendary Questline. Celebrate Hearthstone Lunar New Year by completing tasks to earn up to six free packs:
- 1 Forged in the Barrens Pack,
- 1 United in Stormwind Pack,
- 3 Fractured in Alterac Valley Packs,
- 1 Golden Fractured in Alterac Valley Pack!
If we compare this Legendary Quest chain with the one we got in the 2021 Hearthstone Lunar New Year event, we might be a bit disappointed. Last year players got up to 9 Hearthstone free packs, a 50% more than in 2022. Maybe you can factor the Golden pack into the mix as compensation, you just need to be lucky enough to hit an epic or legendary card to compensate for the dust.
Lunar New Year Cosmetics
This Lunar New Year celebrations are bringing more cosmetics than ever to Hearthstone. To begin with, you can still claim for free the Dancing Lion Card Back in the shop. This special edition card back was designed by Xi Luo, a Hearthstone player that won the Card Back Design Competition in China. You have time until February 8 before it leaves the shop.
On top of this special card back, the shop has been renewed with new skin options for Battlegrounds. Battlegrounds Heroes: Three Kingdoms is a special edition for 8 characters that costs $14.99 and will be available through March 14.
Furthermore, if you fancy a new bartender, Fariel Starsong is available for purchase to serve you the best minions in the tavern. Slysssa, a prominent Battlegrounds streamer and part of the equal representation movement in Hearthstone half-celebrated the addition. Maybe a human girl bartender will be next.
If you are a constructed player, you can also enjoy ranked skin bundles. Evil From Pandaria, Snake and Crane, and Diao Chan Valeera bundles are available in the shop at $9.99 each. If you are a collector, don’t miss them.
Special Lunar New Year Hearthstone Tavern Brawl
Last but not least, the Lunar Belsing Tavern Brawl will be back this week. Chose your favorite class to get a random deck, and then choose your Blessing from an animal in the zodiac to boost your chances in the fight. These are the 12 options available for this week’s Tavern Brawl.
Tavish Book of Mercenaries
On top of everything we mentioned about the Lunar New Year, Hearthstone is also releasing Tavish’s edition of the Book of Mercenaries. Learn this Alliance Mercenary story in a PvE adventure that will grant you a Hunter Hearthstone pack. If you want to know more about the lore of this character, check the adventure description below.
“The hunter Tavish Stormpike never wanted anything to do with his stuck-up, overbearing cousin Vanndar, but fate (and the promise of loot) have brought him back to Alterac Valley. The troll Kazakus plans to restore the shattered naaru and use its power to complete a mysterious ritual. To stop him, Tavish must overcome the Frostwolves, Horde mercenaries, angry Troggs, his own family, and food poisoning! Can he stomach it?”Tavish Book of Mercenaries intro by Blizzard
