In other Hearthstone news, Blizzard revealed a few more cards that will be available in the game once the Goblins vs Gnomes expansion kicks in next month. First off, we have the second GvG card for the Shaman class and it goes by the name of Whirling Zip-o-matic. This is a 2 mana cost 3/2 mech minion with Windfury that looks almost harmless compared to some of the other cards included in the upcoming Hearthstone expansion. Don’t let that fool you though because it’s never a good idea to underestimate a Windfury minion, especially given the Shaman’s potential to buff the damage with Bloodlust or a Rockbiter Weapon. Next off, we have the Snowchugger, a pretty straightforward 2 mana cost 2/3 mech minion for the Mage class which costs 2 mana. This is basically just a miniature version of the Water Elemental as it has the same ability of freezing any character it attacks.

Last but not least, Blizzard unveiled the first class Legendary and it’s certainly a unique beast. This is a Hunter card that goes by the name of Gahz’rilla and packs 6 attack and 9 health, all at only 7 mana. This new addition to Hearthstone has the potential to become very deadly, very fast thanks to its ability. Gahz’rilla’s attack doubles every time it takes damage and at 9 health, most players will need to hit it at least once or twice to bring it down. Your opponent will only need to hit it once for it to become a 12 damage minion and if takes damage one more time, you already have a 24 damage monster on the field. To top it all off, Gahz’rilla is a Beast card, which means that you can use synergy cards from the Hunter’s arsenal such as Bestial Wrath of Houndmaster to make it even stronger.
