Blizzard Entertainment announced another expansion for the card game Hearthstone, titled Scholomance Academy. The plot of the expansion will focus on the title university created by Kel'Thuzad. There is also a trailer available (you can find it below), which as usual is kept in humorous convention.

Hearthstone: Scholomance Academy - dual class cards

The add-on will introduce 135 new cards, 40 of which will belong to a completely new type - so-called dual class cards, which combine the advantages of two classes, offering players completely new options. Ten different combinations have been prepared: Druid / Hunter, Hunter / Demon Hunter, Demon Hunter / Sorcerer, Sorcerer / Priest, Priest / Paladin, Paladin / Warrior, Warrior / Rogue, Rogue / Mage, Mage / Shaman and Shaman / Druid. Below you will find some examples of such cards.

Scholomance Academy - Spellburst and Studies

Another novelty will be the keyword Spellburst - it's supposed to be a one-time effect, which will be activated immediately after casting the spell. This will enable the players create new combinations of moves.

There will also be a new category of spells in the game - the so-called studies which will enable us to immediately discover a card, and will further reduce the cost of the next card of a given kind.
