Blizzard has revealed the details of the upcoming Rewards Track for Murder at Castle Nathria (taking over next week, on August 2), and it's your usual expanded package deal - new Diamond cards, cosmetic coins, Tavern Pass perks, and more! There is also one Uncraftable Legendary card being instantly claimable that's the same for everyone, with infamous Sire Denathrius playing the role this time around; while distinguished explorer Sir Finley is set to become our newest Mercenary gift. 

Remember, this also means the end of XP gains for the current set of Sunken City achievements (don't forget about our guides if you still wish to accumulate more gold before the time's up): 

Quote From Blizzard

It’s almost time to sink your teeth into a new Rewards Track! When the Rewards Track refreshes with the Murder at Castle Nathria launch, all players will automatically be granted any unclaimed rewards on both the free Rewards Track and the Tavern Pass track (if purchased), and a completely new Murder at Castle Nathria Rewards Track of unlockable treasure will take its place.

Reminder, Voyage to the Sunken City Achievements will stop awarding XP with the launch of Patch 24.0 on July 26, whereas the Rewards Track will swap over with the launch of Murder at Castle Nathria on August 2.

Let's see what else is in there: 

Murder at Castle Nathria Tavern Pass

The Tavern Pass continues the recent trend, building upon the new cosmetic additions for Battlegrounds and Mercenaries that started appearing since the Alterac Valley version. This is a paid upgrade to the base Rewards Track.

There seems to be at least one notable difference compared to the previous Rewards Tracks - seemingly fewer skins offered, but instead another two copies of Uncraftable Golden Epic card (Insatiable Devourer) reserved for the Pass holders. At levels 20 and 25, respectively, so found very early on the path (only takes a handful of quests, some of which we can save in advance).

The catch? You may not wish to open your Castle Nathria packs ahead of time if you'd prefer to avoid finding any regular (and craftable) Epic versions of the card - duplicate protection won't be in effect, after all. Not such a great news for anyone who was looking forward towards setting up their own Fireside Gathering for a pre-release weekend.

Quote From Blizzard
With the launch of Murder at Castle Nathria, a new Tavern Pass will be made available for purchase, offering an infusion of brand-new cosmetic rewards and XP boosts.

Purchasing the Tavern Pass at any point during the expansion will immediately grant access to the Diamond Murloc Holmes Legendary minion, a 10% XP Boost that lasts the rest of the duration of the expansion, and all other items up to your current level on the paid track. As you progress with the Tavern Pass during the Murder at Castle Nathria expansion, you can earn additional XP Boosts, the Golden Prince Renathal Legendary minion, two Golden Insatiable Devourer Epic minions, the Prince Renathal hero skin and card back, nine additional Hearthstone hero skins, a new Battlegrounds Bartender, five murder-mystery themed Battlegrounds hero skins, three Sir Finley Mercenaries Portraits, and a new cosmetic coin.*

As a reminder, Battlegrounds Perks are not included in the Tavern Pass. With Patch 24.0, Battlegrounds base emotes will be available to all players; all other Battlegrounds Perks from the current Battlegrounds season have been extended until next Battlegrounds season (Patch 24.2) for players who have purchased Battlegrounds Perks. Stay tuned for more information about the future of Battlegrounds, coming soon.

Golden Prince Renathal and Insatiable Devourers are uncraftable and can’t be disenchanted. 

Murder at Castle Nathria Diamond Cards 

Tradition beckons. Two new expansion cards are once again getting the Diamond treatment with Murder at Castle Nathria:

Additionally, Diamond Decimator Olgra will become easier to earn once the 35-Card Mini-set drops in the coming months.

Nope, no animations being shown for the time being. 

Murder at Castle Nathria New Coins 

No surprises to be had here, we are getting two new Castle Nathria coins with the new expansion. 

  • Venthyr Coin - Earned by completing 90 levels of the Rewards Track. (Requires paid Tavern Pass)
  • Castle Nathria Coin - Earned by collecting 135 unique Murder at Castle Nathria cards.

Additionally, the Venthyr coin will get easier to earn once the 35-Card Mini-set drops in the coming months.

Quote From Blizzard
Murder at Castle Nathria will have a 35-card Mini-Set that will make it easier to reach both the 25 total Legendary cards for the Diamond Decimator Olgra Legendary minion and the 135 total unique cards for the Castle Nathria Coin. We’ll have more information to share about the Murder at Castle Nathria Mini-Set in the coming months.

Murder at Castle Nathria Rewards Track 

Quote From Blizzard
The free Rewards Track for Murder at Castle Nathria will include packs from Murder at Castle Nathria, Standard packs, Tavern Tickets, a random Epic card, two random Legendary cards, a Sir Finley Epic Mercenary Card, the Revendreth card back, and a lot of Gold! There are also 14 Golden cards and the Sire Denathrius Legendary card from the set.* For finishing the Rewards Track, you’ll get to choose from one of 10 returning Hero Skins.

* These 14 Golden cards (two copies each of seven cards from the set) and the Sire Denathrius Legendary card earned from the Rewards Track are not craftable and can’t be disenchanted.
