We recently got a look at the full art for Hagatha the Witch, an upcoming Shaman legendary card from Hearthstone‘s newest expansion “The Witchwood”; now, courtesy of concept artist Tooth Wu (notable for such card art as Ironforge Rifleman, Twilight Elder, Wilfred Fizzlebang and Yogg-Saron, Hope’s End), another brand-new card sneak peek a full week before the official card reveal:
According to a translation from the artist’s Weibo page: “New card, send it. @ Hearthstone Legend.”
The character, whose design is reminiscent of epic Warlock minion card Gnomeferatu, is a gnome witch with haunting violet eyes holding a gnarled wooden staff in one hand and a foreboding, worm-riddled apple (straight out of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves) in the other.
The character also sports a mantle with jagged-looking shoulder segments similar to legendary Hearthstone archmage Medivh, although it’s too early to tell whether the style-choice implies some further association or is purely coincidental.
What type of card do you think this character will turn out to be in Hearthstone‘s The Witchwood expansion? Sound off in the comments.
The Witchwood official card reveal takes place on March 26th on the Hearthstone Twitch.tv channel.
