3D Animated Diamond Cards are coming to Hearthstone
Friendship ended with Golden cards, Diamond cards are now my best friend.
“With the introduction of the Forged in the Barrens Tavern Pass, we’re excited to announce what was previously spell-locked for Phase 1 on our roadmap for the year—an all-new cosmetic card tier for Hearthstone: Diamond cards! Each expansion will include one or more handcrafted Diamond Legendary cards that feature completely new 3D animations, more real estate for card art, and a stylish Diamond border,” the Hearthstone team announced in their latest blog post.
💎🙌 Introducing Diamond cards, an all-new cosmetic card tier the first of which will be Bru'kan and Blademaster Samuro! Also, it's time for the Rewards Track to refresh!

We’d like to clarify that Diamond cards aren’t a new rarity tier but are simply an additional cosmetic option. While Golden cards feature moving characters encased in a shiny golden card, Diamond cards will have these characters move and actually pop out of the fancy card border.
You’ll be able to acquire two of these cards once Forged in the Barrens rolls along on the 30th of March but not by opening card packs. Instead, this is how you’ll be able to unlock each card:
- Diamond Blademaster Samuro – Instantly obtainable by purchasing the Forged in the Barrens Tavern Pass and claiming the card on the Rewards track.
- Diamond Bru’kan – Obtained by completing the Forged in the Barrens Legendary Collector 5/5 Achievement (Collect all Legendary cards from the set.)
