Rastakhan's Rumble is the fourteenth expansion to the card game called Hearthstone set in the Warcraft universe. This is the last add-on of the so-called Year of the Raven. It was presented for the first time at BlizzCon 2018.
The main theme of the new add-on are trolls, well known to all Warcraft fans. The titular Rastakhan is the king of Zandalar, the ruler of the great trolls' empire. He called all trolls from Azeroth to enable them to take part in an extraordinary show of strength, skill and cunning. The winners will take everything, and there will be no mercy for the losers.
As was the case with most of the previous expansions, this new add-on to Hearthstone introduces 135 cards - this time, they are thematically related to trolls and their mythology, spells, and weapons. Among them there are new types of minions - Spirits, which have the ability to hide for one turn after using them, powerful and legendary loa, and troll champions.
Rastakhan's Rumble also adds a new mechanic called Overkill. If you kill an enemy unit with a card with this skill, you will get a special bonus - for example, the ability to attack again with a weapon or summon an additional creature on the board.
Rastakhan's Rumble also introduces a new, completely free single player mode called Rumble Run. It consists of fights with eight powerful champions. With every win, our deck will grow in strength.
The battles are varied by special "gifts", depending on which class we chose at the very beginning of the game. This decision also determines which powerful minion will appear on the board.
