So the mid-october patch has dropped and revealed the sprites and names for all of the four upcoming monthly Neutrals! Let’s speculate what they might do!
Looks like a new Battle Pet! The sprite and the 3-letter name makes it look like that. The file name (neutral_zyx_attack2x) suggests this is its attack animation, maybe it has an OG that damages a random nearby minion or General?
Azure Herald [Revealed!]
She looks like she comes from the Azure Horn Shaman family and the design suggests some kind of healing or Health-buffing effect as well. Maybe a three-drop that with DW:+1 Health to your General (as a contrast to Day Watcher’s trigger)?
I honestly have no idea, this guy looks like Gnasher’s more murderous cousin, perhaps an effect that triggers when Bloodletter destroys an enemy minion? Would fit the name at least.
My favorite sprite of the bunch, I hope it’s good! The yellow light suggests some sort of thematic link with Lyonar, so maybe it has high Health? I can imagine a simple beatstick with +1 Movement for this card, but I can’t really pin anything down based on the design aside likely high toughness.
What do you guys and gals think?
