Rise of the Bloodborn Spoiler Compendium
So, Duelyst’s second expansion should be dropping around the start of the new year! The expansion introduces cards that revolve around Bloodborn Spells, some using a new keyword called Blood Surge. This keyword reads: “Activate this ability whenever you cast your Bloodborn Spell.”
I’ll be updating this thread more or less every day, waiting a little bit each time for the official reveal threads to calm down: this is just a compendium thread after all.
Design symmetry suggests that every Faction will get at least one card that morphs the player’s BBS and at least two cards with the Blood Surge keyword. CPG has announced the expansion includes 39 cards, and from the currently spoilers we can infer that there are likely to be 6 new cards for each Faction (4 Minions and 2 Spells), and 3 new Neutral Minions. A wrinkle in this hypothesis is the reveal of Horror Burster that doesn’t follow the trend of the other reveals. It’s not currently known why this is.
@shoujokagero established that each Faction should only be getting one Legendary each to fit the Orb system, meaning that the Factions will have asymmetrical Legendary Minions: some getting Blood Surge Legendaries, others getting something else.
*=There’s a structural irregularity that projects Abyssian as getting 7 rather than 6 new cards. We’ll see if this is actually the case.
