New Gwent Cards – Blood and Wine

There might be new cards for various old factions, including neutral ones. We still don’t know if merchants from the main game are going to be selling them, but there’s no doubt you’ll be able to buy them in Toussaint. There will be a tournament in the city, so expect a lot of buzz around that.

Skellige Deck

The biggest treat is, of course, the new deck. A brand new faction to play around with, the Skellige deck consists of images of burly men and women, viking boats and bears. Crach an Craite will be the faction leader, and there will be several card abilities we haven’t seen before. Hjalmar will be one of the heroes, a ranged card with 10 strength. Here are the cards we know of so far:

Here’s what the card abilities in the new deck actually do:
  • Berserker – Turns into a bear if there’s a Madroeme in the same row.
  • Tight Bond – Place next to a card with the same name to double the strength of both cards.
  • Medic – Choose one card from your discard pile and play it instantly (no heroes or special cards).
  • Muster – Summon all other units of the same name from the deck.

    * Possible Spoilers!

    This list is waaaaaay off. To anyone who is curious or needs a checklist, I compiled this one. The locations of merchants who play Gwent and award cards are marked for a quest received after playing your first game in the expansion, I believe. I assume the card awarded is random, but I haven’t tested that assumption. Verified by my having the trophy and having beaten the Blood and Wine tournament.

        You get the cow from HOS expansion in the marriage quest on a second floor of a house on the left from the entrance.

    Thank goodness only the original deck is required for quest completion. There isn’t a proper guide for obtaining cards.
