Darkness is coming to Hearthstone. The upcoming Rise of Shadow\u2019s expansion for Hearthstone will gather the previous evil characters in Hearthstone.\r\n\r\nSwampqueen Hagatha will be joined by the other villains to form the League of E.V.I.L. Hagatha will be brought by Arch-Villain Rafaam along with Togwaggle, Madame Lazul, and Dr. Boom.\r\n\r\nThe bad guys will plan revenge against the heroes who have successfully defeated them in seizing Dalaran.\r\n\r\nHagatha was the first character in The Witchwood set as its only Hero card. Hagatha costs 7 in Mana, and she has 5\/5 stats. Players who will pick her will get a Horror card with 5\/5 stats.\r\n\r\nThe Mana, however, will cost only 5. With Hagatha\u2019s mentoring, the Horror can cast two Shaman spells.\r\n\r\nDave Kosak, in the Rise of Shadows announcement trailer, said the latest expansion would launch the Year of the Dragon.\r\n\r\nThe year, he said, will take the players into the \u201cheart of darkness.\u201d The latest expansion that will be released on April 9 will also introduce 135 new cards and two mechanics. The Rise of Shadows will also launch the game\u2019s storyline for the whole year.\r\n\r\nThis storyline will be the first ever for Hearthstone. It will also feature several improvements, including the Arena rotation.\r\n\r\nPlayers will get to see the Lackeys which they can use to hit their enemies. The Lackeys are minions with 1\/1 stats. Lackeys include the Faceless Lackey, Ethereal Lackey, Goblin Lackey, Kobold Lackey, and Witchy Lackey.\r\n\r\nThe League of E.V.I.L. will also let the players join their Schemes. Schemes are spells that are powerful. However, if players are good at cooking up schemes, they can hold on to it longer and increase their power. Hagatha\u2019s scheme, for instance, has one damage to each minion and can upgrade each turn.\r\n\r\nMeanwhile, possible mechanics are returning with the Rise of Shadow. The villains will reintroduce some of it to players like the Forbidden magics from the Whispers of the Old Gods.\r\n\r\nThe Forbidden Words card is just one of the many familiar mechanics that will make a comeback in April.\r\n\r\nBlizzard also said that the players would get the brand-new single player option in the latest Rise of Shadows expansion.\r\n\r\nCurrent and previous expansions will have a regular rotation too in the Arena. Players can get access on these sets when they are in the Arena: Classic, Basic, Naxxramas, or the Witchwood. They might also access Whispers of the Old Gods, Rise of Shadows, and Mean Streets of Gadgetzan.
