Hearthstone: Maxima Blastenheimer, new Legendary Hunter minion revealed

“Cannon blast! Who wants to get shot out of a cannon?”

Hearthstone‘s upcoming Madness at the Darkmoon Faire expansion revealed its initial round of new cards on Tuesday, including a character whose name makes her sound like she’s straight out of the Goblins vs. Gnomes expansion: Maxima Blastenheimer, a mischievous looking female gnome lighting who looks nothing short of gleeful as she’s about to fire off a cannon on her card art. Maxima also has a potentially powerful (and frustrating to go against) Battlecry which summons a minion from the player’s deck, has it attack the enemy Hero and then die.

Maxima’s Legendary Hunter minion card is based off the Level 35 cannoneer gnome NPC found at Darkmoon Island in World of Warcraft; she operates the Blastenheimer 5000 Ultra Cannon.

6-mana King Krush anyone? 6-mana charging Deathwing? 6-mana charging Ancient One? The possibilities are frightening, hilarious and meme-worthy.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
