N'Zoth, The Corrupter has been revealed in an announcement from Blizzard detailing its lore and some of the cards related to it. The developer has also confirmed its name is pronounced nuh-ZAH-th, so we can all stop arguing about how to say it properly.

If you had issues telling whether or not Undercity Huckster is Neutral or not, you aren't alone. Blizzard has clarified that it is indeed a Rogue class card.

.@Dualmonkey @bdbrode Undercity Huckster is a Rogue card, while N'Zoth's corruption is available to all.

In addition, they've taken some time to clarify N'Zoth, the Corruptor's mechanics.

.@sporkyreeve @ywoo_dev N'Zoth will raise silenced Deathrattle minions, but not cards that were buffed with Deathrattle or transformed.
.@SpenserTrompke N'Zoth embraces chaos, so the resurrected Deathrattle minions will be random.

According to Forsen, Renounce Darkness selects completely randomly. You do not get to Discover the class or steal your opponent's.

Whispers of the Old Gods – The Enigma of N’Zoth

Ancient evils have woken from their ageless slumber to stretch their tentacles and spread mayhem amongst mortals in Hearthstone’s newest expansion: Whispers of the Old Gods! Now it’s time to dig a little deeper, and find out more about the minds behind the tentacles.

This time we’re peering down, down into the ocean’s depths. Join us. Perhaps you may be able to help solve a mystery*. 

International Monster of Mystery
Very little is certain about N’Zoth (pronounced nuh-ZAH-th)—most beings on Azeroth don’t even know its name, much less what it looks like. Scraps of obscure lore claim that the Old God has been imprisoned beneath the darkest depths of the ocean for millennia beyond counting. There are also whispers that N’Zoth desires nothing more than to twist what was once noble and pure to its own inscrutable ends. Ultimately, most of what is “known” about this most insidious of beings is mere speculation.

Still, looking at the evidence, it seems like N’Zoth feels a compulsive need to redecorate, and has the aesthetic sensibilities of someone that’s super into skulls, black leather, and knee high platform boots. Emerald Dream? How about Emerald Nightmare. Neltharion the Earth Warder? Nah, let’s go with DEATHWING THE DESTROYER! Prissy Night Elf nobility throwing a hissy fit? BAM! You get a snake body and actual hissing! Yes, it’s rumored that N’Zoth was involved with twisting the Emerald Dream, corrupting one of Azeroth’s most powerful dragons, and mutating the Highborne into the despicable Naga . . . but it’s just getting started.

Tentacle of N’Zoth
N’Zoth probably has more ambition in its littlest tentacle than most beings have in their entire bodies. Since this purple appendage isn’t N’Zoth’s littlest tentacle, it has fully fleshed out plans for total world domination! If having a megalomaniacal tentacle at your service is good, then having one that also explodes into awful corrosive sludge is doubly fine! It may chafe to admit it, but this gross bit of disembodied anatomy may prove to be a timely ally.  

Undercity Huckster
Evil is evil, sure, but N’Zoth is a very busy otherworldly horror, so sometimes it’s nice to have someone around to take care of the mundane, everyday wickedness. Take this guy for example. The Undercity Huckster was once an upstanding merchant known for his honesty and integrity. However, after being exposed to a taste of N’Zoth’s tainted influence, he’s now taken to stealing other peoples’ best tricks and selling them back after a price hike.

We hope you enjoyed skirting the edges of N’Zoth’s dark mysteries. There are more Old Gods waiting in the beyond, so prepare yourselve for further unsettling revelations (and card reveals)!

Study up and prepare to welcome your new overlords by devouring previously printed Old Gods lore:
