With the first chapter in the long-awaited battle between the League of E.V.I.L. and League of Explorers now live and free for all players - Hearthstone: Descent of Dragons
and the Year of the Dragon is finally ready to come to a close. In Galkarond's Awakening the adventure is more linear, but interesting in that you'll get to play through Arch-Villain Rafaam’s final plan for complete domination from both sides.
Here's the first chapter's synopsis for each faction. There be dragons here.
League of E.V.I.L. Battle of the Frozen Coast
The League of E.V.I.L. has reached Northrend to put the final stage of their plan into play. Dalaran soars in the skies carrying the Plague of Undeath, and the ultimate goal is now clear. Rafaam must resurrect Galakrond if he’s to be proclaimed the villain of all villains! But the League of Explorers is right behind them, allying with the dragon aspects to stop Galakrond’s return.
In this first chapter, you’ll take control of some familiar faces from past stories, including the arakkoa Kriziki and the fortune teller Madame Lazul. There are three encounters to complete in League of E.V.I.L. Chapter 1, including a battle against the dapper murloc Sir Finley.
League of Explorers: Battle of the Frozen Coast
The League of Explorers were victorious in the deserts of Uldum, stopping the Plague Lords from spreading doom and destruction across the world. However, not all dangers were contained in the Tombs of Terror. Dalaran now speeds toward Northrend carrying the Plague of Undeath, and where Rafaam goes, trouble follows.
You’ll begin by taking control of Brann Bronzebeard as the League of Explorers arrives to combat the League of E.V.I.L. However, the shores of Northrend are heavily fortified, and Dr. Boom lies in wait to fend off their first attack.
