While Hearthstone has opted to dabble in science for its latest expansion, The Boomsday Project, a full year has passed since the Lich King invaded Blizzard's card game with Knights of the Frozen Throne. Not one to cede the spotlight to a mad scientist, the Lich King is coming back for a special in-game event called Days of the Frozen Throne.
Players can log into Hearthstone next Wednesday for two special Legendary Quests, which will reward a whopping 300 gold each. For comparison, rare quests max out at 100 gold, so this is triple that amount. To help get everyone started, players will also receive a special Golden Happy Ghoul card, which should be useful for those Warlock players running zoo decks.
Next week also sees the launch of a new Tavern Brawl called Duel of the Death Knights, where both players begin as Death Knight characters out of the gate. They'll also be armed with various cards from the Knights of the Frozen Throne set.
And speaking of the Knights of the Frozen Throne set, players will be able to pick up a special one-time-only bundle from Hearthstone's in-game Shop. The Bundle Up Bundle will offer up 30 Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs for $19.99. That's a double value, as $19.99 normally nets only 15 card packs.
For more information, be sure to visit the Hearthstone website. The Days of the Frozen Throne event is set to run from September 19-23. In keeping up with the theme, why not try and take down The Lich King, if you haven't already? Remember that there's an Arthas Paladin Hero in it for you if you do.
