The new set for the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game (WoW TCG in short) is coming soon, and the spoilers are arriving thick and fast! It’s time for War of the Ancients by the way, in case you were not clued in – so yeah, get ready!


It’s really back to basics as the more “traditional” races, such as Night Elves, Humans, Tauren and Orcs are revisited. And about time too, since there’s been tons of Monsters and weird races, in the preceding sets!


War of the Ancients marks a return to the WoW universe origins, with the obligatory bunch of new keywords and game abilities.


New abilities are pretty much a given in every WoW TCG set (heck, every single card game), but I think the biggest gimmick and draw has to the slew of characters reappearing as hero cards. I mean, Illidan Stormrage, Arthas, Uther the Lightbringer and Cho’Gall are just a bunch of lore-laden and legendary names any WoW fan would love to build decks around.


I’m guessing this is Cryptozoic’s way of pulling more people in, since being able to make these cards, and let people build decks around, is more or less an instant-win.


And talking about instant wins, I can’t wait for this set to be out! The more common uncommon Death Knight ability Death’s Decree is so simple yet fun. There’s a Pally ability that lets your hero reach 100 health (nope, not a typo). I’m pretty sure there’ll be more imba spells and stuff headed our way: you just wait!


In the meantime, watch this space for more details on pre-release events, release tournaments and more cool stuff! With the ongoing revival of WoW TCG in Malaysia, there’s plenty to look forward to!
