A cryptic blog post on Blizzard’s Hearthstone page is raising a lot of questions today. The Innkeeper’s Tale has a new entry, with the “Mysterious Patron”, and inside is what appears to be a teaser for a brand new Warrior hero.
Get in here, and lets play “Who’s that hero?” so we can figure it out.
A new contender has entered the Hearthstone arena, but Blizzard being as tight-lipped about the identity of the new character.

Given Blizzard’s clue, it’s gotta be a hearty Dwarf. Two characters come to mind: Muradin Bronzebeard, or his brother, Magni Bronzebeard. Both would make fine representation of the Warrior class, but one question does remain.
Will this additional new hero be part of an expansion, or will it be some sort of purchase through the store? Also, does it keep Garrosh’s armour-up hero ability, or will it gain an entirely new one for itself?
Looking at the hero silhouettes behind the teaser, you might notice it’s not only Garrosh that is missing, but also Rexxar - the character that represents the Hunter class. Is this only the first of many new heroes to grace Hearthstone?
I’m sure we’ll know the answer soon enough. Stay tuned as we report on any new findings as they appear.
