    New Game Board: Stranglethorn Vale

    Blizzard have just released a preview of another game board. The rather green Strangethorn Vale.

    http://us.battle.net/hearthstone/en/...vale-5-23-2013

    What secrets await you in Stranglethorn Vale?

    Whether you’re most at home strolling through the streets of Stormwind or marching through the dust-laden paths of Orgrimmar, our artists have focused their efforts on recreating iconic Warcraft environments in Hearthstone to provide the perfect ambiance for your friendly duels. These “boards” aren’t just for show; they each contain secrets to help you pass the time while your opponent struggles with each critical decision.

    Let’s explore the mystique of the overgrown jungles of Stranglethorn Vale—Hearthstone style!
    Our Stranglethorn Vale board is designed to appeal to players of all factions, since it was such a memorable part of everyone’s early World of Warcraft experiences. Do you remember the first time you tracked game through the Vale’s wild undergrowth? What about the heart-stopping moments where you saw (or heard) a Rogue stealthing in your general vicinity? While you may encounter some Rogues in Hearthstone, don’t worry—it’s just your opponent. This time, you’ll be ready for them!
    On this board, you can relax nearby a peaceful waterfall as it flows over the rocks below, or you can venture bravely into Hemet Nesingwary’s camp, eager to take on the next hunt that awaits you. If exploration is more your style, why not investigate the imposing ruby-eyed statue or pull back the vines covering that ancient archway? Beware! Danger lurks behind every corner, or may just be hiding under a nearby log . . . you should probably build a fire to keep the beasts at bay.

    We hope the Hearthstone Stranglethorn Vale board brings back fond memories for veteran World of Warcraft players. With its gentle, swaying animations and fun clickable interactions, we also hope it will make some new memories as well! Explore on, Hearthlings!

    I love that the boards are going to be part of the fun with this game. Also, it seems like Blizzard decided on calling Hearthstone players, Hearthlings xD

    Really liked this board when they showcased it in the stream they did. Nice little touches like the ruby in the statue coming out and such.

    I really need to finish watching that stream, I only managed to catch the first, maybe 20 minutes

    I do love that the boards are not just static artwork though. It adds something nice to the game without distracting you.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing a Darnassus board at some point (hopefully)

    It's funny to me how people on the HS forums are bitching because "they've already seen this board on the stream"...I'm just devouring every bit of HS news right now because I'm so excited for the game, and reading about the board/seeing the better resolution images of it are just a bonus.
