Kobolds & Catacombs, Hearthstone‘s (Free) upcoming expansion, is one step closer today since the update that just hit has added the pre-purchase bundle and, more importantly, has given every player a free Legendary from the upcoming set, Marin the Fox. The pre-purchase bundle is the same as for previous expansions; you get 50 packs and card back, For the Hoard! in this case, for $49.99. The bundle is a good deal and is even better now that Hearthstone ensures you won’t get duplicate Legendaries or too many copies of other cards. The update has also added a unique Hero tray for the Warlock hero Nemsy Necrofizzle as well as animated Nemsy’s Hero Power button. And, of course, there were plenty of fixes, as is always the case.
The most interesting part of the update is, of course, Marin the Fox. This 8 mana 6/6 Neutral Legendary summons an 0/8 Treasure Chest for your opponent, and once you manage to break that chest, you get some sweet treasures. The treasures are the 6/6 Golden Kobold with Taunt and a Battlecry that replaces your hand with Legendary minions, Tolin’s Goblet, which draws a card and fills your hand with copies of it, Zarog’s Crown, which lets you Discover a Legendary minion and summon two copies of it, and Wondrous Wand, which draws 3 cards and reduces their costs to 0. As you can see, these are some cool card that should be fun to play. Enjoy Marin the Fox everyone.
