GAMING: Hearthstone Fractured In Alterac Valley Card Reveal: Rokara The Valorous Warrior Hero

dWeb.News Article from Daniel Webster dWeb.News

Hearthstone’s next expansion, Fractured In Alterac Valley, finally pits Alliance vs Horde. It’s a way of bringing together all of the various mercenary characters that have been progressively built up over the course of the year, and part of that means new Hero cards based on each of the 10 characters. The Warrior Rokara is one of those.

Hero cards in Hearthstone are class Legendaries with big game-changing effects. These cards can replace your Hero completely, often giving you a powerful Battlecry or significantly increasing your Hero power. In the case of Rokara the Valorous, that means equipping a 5/2 Unstoppable Force, which smashes enemy minions into your opponent like croquet balls. Grand Slam, her upgraded hero power, uses the Honorable Kill keyword. You can deal 2 damage but you will also get 4 armor if you cause lethal injury to a minion. This makes it an effective combination of defense and offense that will help you survive into the end-game.

For those who have been paying attention to Hearthstone card reveals in advance of Alterac Valley, you may notice that Rokara’s new 5/2 weapon is a mirror image of another legendary Hero card. The Paladin card Lightforged Cariel includes her own weapon, a 2/5 weapon named The Immovable Obj. Rokara’s Unstoppable Force is paired thematically with Cariels Immovable object. That’s by design, as Blizzard intends the two to have something of a rivalry going into this final expansion:

Rokara had proven herself over and over again. She was able to withstand any challenge she faced without failing to perform. Her goals were higher with each challenge. She was known as the Unstoppable Warrior within the Horde. She stared at the battlefield and then she saw the Immovable Cariel. It was impossible to predict what would happen between them.

Following the Deadmines mini-set, Warrior has been an especially powerful class. Pirate Warrior was already a strong deck due to Warrior quest Raid The Docks. It got even more powerful with key cards like Mr. Smite or Defias Kanoneer. It is not clear if Rokara The Valorous will be included in a new Pirate Warrior build or if it will serve as an archtype.

Fractured In Alterac Valley is having players pledge allegiance to the Alliance or Horde by logging in and claiming a free golden Legendary representing the two sides. This will decide which side you are in the conflict. You’ll also get special quests to increase your Honor during the Alterac expansion. The leader of the winning faction will be immortalized with a Diamond card. Pre-purchase bundles now available
