As stated, the set introduces a whopping 135 new cards, some of which look incredibly powerful and are sure to have a big impact on Hearthstone’s meta.

Alongside this, Forged in the Barrens introduces a new keyword into the mix. Known as Frenzy, cards with this keyword will trigger “a powerful effect the first time they survive damage!”

All of Hearthstone’s classes will also gain access to a new ranked spell. This spell card grows in strength, each time the player reaches 5 and 10 Mana Crystals.

Finally, the expansion adds a new mechanic, titled Spell Schools. This mechanic adds synergies between different cards and helps to add “a new layer of depth” to the player’s collections.
