Welcome to our Blackrock Mountain content hub! This page provides a run-down of everything you need to know about Blackrock Mountain--pricing, release schedule, collectible cards, boss encounters, heroic mode, and more!

Blackrock Mountain Overview

Blackrock Mountain is currently available in the Hearthstone client and launched on Thursday, April 2nd, 2015. There is a total of five new wings and 31 new cards to collect!

Blackrock Mountain is based on the mountain in World of Warcraft. In WoW it contains 4 dungeons and 2 raids. In the pre-expansion days it contained the dungeons Blackrock Depths and Blackrock Spire (which was further divided into Upper and Lower Blackrock Spire), and the raids Molten Core and Blackwing Lair. Later in the Cataclysm expansion the dungeon Blackrock Caverns and raid Blackwing Descent were added.

Release Schedule

Like the last adventure, Blackrock Mountain was released in five wings, each spaced one week apart.

Pre-ordering was notable as you got a unique card back as a reward for your early purchase. The Molten Core was only obtainable through pre-ordering.

The order of wings is as follows:
  1. Blackrock Depths
  2. Molten Core
  3. Blackrock Spire
  4. Blackwing Lair
  5. The Hidden Laboratory

Pricing

Pricing follows the same structure as Naxxramas. Each Blackrock Mountain wing is purchasable for 700 gold or $6.99 (5.99 EUR / 4.99 GBP). The wings could be purchased in bulk for $19.99 (17.99 EUR / 13.99 GBP) for the remaining four wings, or all five wings for $24.99 (21.99 EUR / 17.49 GBP).

Pre-ordering will got you the Molten Core card back!

Blackrock Mountain Teaser on Hearthstone Website

The Hearthstone website was updated to include a small animated elemental that floats just above the navigation bar. After PAX East 2014, this elemental was clickable and took you to the dedicated Blackrock Mountain page.

In addition, the Card Carousel on the Hearthstone website showed five relevant cards:  Magma Rager Twilight Drake Leeroy Jenkins Core Hound and  Dark Iron Dwarf. The characters from each of these cards can be found in Blackrock Mountain!

New Cards

There are 17 bosses in Blackrock Mountain and they each reward a new card. Completing each of the five wings rewards a special legendary card, and completing each of the nine class challenges also rewards a unique card.

Golden Cards

Golden cards follow the same rules as the other Standard adventures:
  • Golden versions of the Blackrock Mountain cards are only available through crafting.
  • In addition, you need to obtain the regular version of the card first.
    • Golden cards whose normal counterparts are obtained from killing a boss can be crafted after that boss is defeated.
    • Legendary cards can be crafted after their respective wing is completed.
    • Class Challenge cards can be crafted after defeating their respective class challenges.
  • The costs for these golden cards follows the same pattern as regular crafted golden cards. 400 dust for common, 800 dust for rare, 1600 dust for epic, and 3200 for legendary.

Heroic Mode

The Heroic mode will become available after defeating a wing on Normal mode, offering additional challenges.

Class Challenges

Class challenges are unlocked after defeating specific wings on normal mode. Each of the nine classes gets a class challenge and the challenges use a special pre-constructed deck selected by Blizzard, pitted against a particular boss.

While there is 18 class cards total, only 9 are from challenges. The other 9 are from defeating various bosses.

This is a breakdown of which wing unlocks each Class Challenge as well as the rewarded cards:
