Wednesday, May 22, 2019 —

Greetings,

Blastmaster Boom is headed back to the drawing board to upgrade his arsenal and perfect some of his favorite pet projects with Hearthstone’s Rise of the Mech event, starting June 3, which will include:

  • A brand new Legendary Mech, SN1P-SN4P

  • Buffs to cards from every class

  • New Arena draft rotation

  • A Mech-vitational event spanning over several days

See below for an overview of each of the updates or visit the blog for an even deeper dive.

You can also find assets for the Rise of the Mech event in the press kit

Behold Your New Mechanical Overlord, SN1P-SN4P

Make the most of the Rise of the Mech event by logging in anytime between June 3 and July 1 and you’ll earn a golden copy of the new neutral Legendary Mech SN1P-SN4P! After July 1, the regular version of SN1P-SN4P can be crafted for the usual cost of 1600 dust.
