Update: Over on the Hearthstone forums Aratil has clarified that the bundle was scheduled to release yesterday but the team ran into some issues which have caused it to be delayed. "Unfortunately, we can't provide an exact date right now," Aratil says. "Originally. we were targeting to push this out with a patch yesterday, September 13th, but encountered some issues that prevented us from doing so. We are currently in the process of resolving said issues, and will be releasing the patch as soon as possible."

Original Story: New to Hearthstone and need to jump start your collection? Or maybe you're just willing to buy a guaranteed Legendary minion for a reasonable price. Blizzard has announced a new Welcome Bundle for Hearthstone that includes one random class Legendary from the Classic set and ten additional packs for a total of 51 cards for $5.

Of course, you have a chance at opening another Legendary in those packs, but the big factor for many will be the one that is included at the time of purchase. Note, however, that it will not be a golden Legendary. This deal will be available after the next patch and can only be purchased once per account.
