Free Hearthstone Solo Adventure Available Today

A new solo adventure based around the Demon Hunter class is out today as part of the Felfire Festival and update 17.4.1, detailed in the full patch notes.


Hearthstone has a new free five-chapter solo story, Trial by Felfire that is available now, as part of patch 17.4.1 and the Felfire Festival. This solo adventure comes after the release of the new Demon Hunter class, the first new class added since launch in 2014.

The adventure follows the story of Aranna Starseeker, who teams up with Illidian, the game's Demon Hunter, to take down the architect of the Rusted Legion, Mecha-Jaraxxus. The adventure awards a Rusted Legion card back.
