Hearthstone unleashed a theorycrafting event on July 27 ahead of the United in Stormwind expansion launch on Aug. 3. Invited participants can create decks with new cards and duke it out against their opponents.
The United in Stormwind theorycrafting event also features Twitch drops. Viewers of participating live channels have to watch for two hours before they can claim a United in Stormwind card pack. Another card pack can be earned by watching a livestream for an additional four hours.
How to get Twitch drops
In order to get Twitch drops, first connect your Twitch account with your Battle.net one. To do this, log in to the livestreaming platform, visit the Twitch connections page and click the “Connect” button located next to Battle.net. Twitch drops will be enabled after following a simple set of instructions. The drops inventory page on Twitch can be used to track the process required to earn and claim a reward.
There are several Hearthstone players participating in the event. They can be found in the participating live channels page.
United in Stormwind launch
Hearthstone’s United in Stormwind expansion has 135 new cards. Additionally, it features new Questlines, profession tools, mounts and the “Tradeable” keyword. When used, cards with this keyword can be swapped with another card in a player’s deck.
As for Questlines, they are Legendary spells that begin in a player’s hand and involve tiers of progression. After completing each step of a Questline, a player gets a reward.
Profession tools in United in Stormwind are weapons that have special effects as opposed to attack values. Meanwhile, a mount can aid players in battle by summoning another minion once the token gets taken down.
Hearthstone players can also pre-purchase the expansion before the launch date.
