Lore[]

The Darkmoon raceway in World of Warcraft

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Malle Earnhard runs the Darkmoon Races, starting at the boardwalk. The objective is to make it from the start/finish line to a set number of colored checkpoints, and then back to the finish line in as few bell tolls as possible, while taking advantage of speed and jump boosts and avoiding electrified fences.

History[]

Blizzard announced there would be a 35 card mini-set released for Madness at the Darkmoon Faire during the initial reveal for the expansion.

On January 17th, 2021, news site Windows Central mistakenly posted a press release for the set a few days early[1][2], revealing details including the price and returning mechanics from old sets, as well as updates to Battlegrounds and Duels coming in the same patch.

On January 19th, the set was officially announced with a trailer posted on the Hearthstone YouTube channel, which revealed the cards Keywarden Ivory, Envoy Rustwix, and Landslide. Cards were revealed in groups every hour, which continued throughout the day until every card had been revealed.

Trivia[]

  • Darkmoon Races is the first Mini-set.
  • Darkmoon Races had the shortest reveal season of any card set. It was revealed on January 19th, 2021, and every card was revealed that day.
