Whenever we see trading cards we regularly see artistic impressions; especially with the characters popping out of their frames. Now we're getting it in Hearthstone with the introduction of Diamond cards!
These cards are uncraftable and cannot be disenchanted, they will also be absent from card parks. These cards are the next step up above Golden cards and are purely aesthetic. The only way to get them is to unlock them through a set criteria.
Diamond Blademaster Samuro - Instantly obtainable by purchasing the Forged in the Barrens Tavern Pass and claiming the card on the Rewards Track.
Diamond Bru'kan - Obtained by collecting all Legendary cards from the set (The Forged in the Barrens Legendary Collector 5/5 Achievement).
These cards will arrive when the Forged in the Barrens launches at the end of March.
Coming with the new cards and set is a new Rewards Track. Weighted heavily to the Free Track, new changes to the Reward track include doubling the core reward levels, and adding new rewards including uncraftable Golden cards.
Buying the Tavern Pass will net you a variety of Hero Skins, with ten to choose from in total.
Purchasing the Tavern Pass at any point during the expansion will immediately grant the Diamond Blademaster Samuro Legendary card, a 10% XP Boost that lasts for the duration of the expansion, and all items up to your current level on the Paid Track.
As players progress with the Tavern Pass during the Forged in the Barrens expansion, they'll earn additional XP Boosts, the Barrens card back, the uncraftable Shadowhunter Vol’jin Golden Legendary minion, the Firefang Rexxar Hero Skin, and an all-new cosmetic coin!
Hero Skins for the new Mercenaries introduced in Forged in the Barrens are also earnable: three Rokara Warrior Hero Skins, three Kurtrus Demon Hunter Hero Skins, and three Xyrella Priest Hero Skins!
