Hearthstone Patch 5.2.0: Recruit a Friend!

Posted on July 15, 2016

As of yesterday, if you can convince some friends to join you in Hearthstone, you’ll net rewards for the both of you!

All your recruits will enjoy a free classic card pack (up to a total of 5 friends). Additionally, you will get the option to play as the new Shaman hero, Morgl the Oracle, as soon as your first recruit gets to a combined level of 20 across all classes. This is a big deal, as all of the new heroes to date have required you to buy them in the store (bad Blizzard). Plus everyone will know you’ve got a sick posse (of at least one person) hanging in the tavern with you!

Check out Morgl and the rest of the patch notes below!
