Hearthstone’s Scholomance Academy is open for students new and old

Hey, a school that's totally safe to open, nice.

Ah, Scholomance: It might just be the dungeon I’ve run the most times in all of MMOs. And now Blizzard is asking you to play it all over again in Hearthstone, kinda, now that Scholomance Academy has launched for the game.

“At Scholomance Academy, students will immerse themselves in a range of magical disciplines designed to empower their continued success in Hearthstone. This mystical curriculum is best represented by Dual-Class cards, usable by two classes (the ultimate double major) and designed around mechanics and strategies they both share. Hunter and Druid students, for example, both have an affinity for beasts and will learn of new ways to harness their wild power. There are 40 Dual-Class cards in Scholomance Academy, including 10 signature Legendary professor minions—one for each of the unique class pairings. To achieve the highest marks, Scholomance Academy pupils will also have to master the Spellburst keyword, found on minions and weapons, which triggers a powerful one-time effect the next time the player casts a spell. In addition, Studies allow players to Discover a card (select one card from three choices to add to your hand) immediately and reduce the mana cost of the next card they play of that type.”

Blizzard is promising additional “major updates” from now until the next expansion, including balancing tweaks, battleground heroes, minions, one seasonal event, and solo content, plus the mysterious new game mode it’s been teasing.

Well, at least I won’t have to grind for the stupid Silent Fang ever again!

Back in the day when Blizzard first started releasing apparel for WoW I felt they missed the boat by not having a “Scholomance University” shirt.
