Blizzard has released a big new patch for Hearthstone that added a new hero. Only you’ll have to refer some friends before you can unlock it.

Hearthstone has received its latest big patch. The update, version 13619, was recently released on PC and mobile and added the new Recruit A Friend feature.

To make things interesting, Blizzard locked the game’s new hero, a Murloc Shaman called Morgl the Oracle, behind participating in the new friend referral programme.

When your first recruit achieves 20 combined levels across all classes, you’ll get Morgl. Your recruits also earn a free Classic pack, and you get free Classic card packs for up to four more recruits.

The people you recruit must not already be playing Hearthstone. You can send send the recruiting email through your Battle.net account.
