The Lunar New Year is happening next week. Hearthstone won’t be waiting that long, however, as it’s kicking off its celebration on February 9. There’s going to be new Legendary quests and a Tavern Brawl that fans love. Players can also go to the shop and get the special Three Kingdoms Hero skins.

Legendary Quest

Let’s jump right into what the new Legendary quests have to offer. They are available from February 9 to February 23 and each rewards two Madness at the Darkmoon Faire card packs as well as one Scholomance Academy card pack. The different objectives are:

  • Play 1 game of Battlegrounds
  • Play 5 games of Duels
  • Play 5 Ranked Standard Games

It’s that simple!
