Which one is the more daunting task: collect more than 80 Legendary cards in Hearthstone or actually go find their respective NPCs in World of Warcraft?

 

Technically, it's the latter since a lot of these major WoW figures have non-playable cards in Hearthstone that are mostly encountered in Adventure mode (okay, some of them aren't even Legendaries). Jeppz95 took what must have been an impressively long journey in World of Warcraft and found almost a hundred (I stopped counting around 80) characters that co-exist in both Blizzard games.

 

Given that a lot more people are playing Hearthstone than World of Warcraft and Hearthstone is a much newer game, it wouldn't be a mistake to assume that a lot of Hearthstone players have never played WoW and perhaps know nothing about the Warcraft universe. This is a cool way to show how well known cards look in their actual - yet virtual - surroundings in a completely different game. Here are 6 out of a total of 86 images; you can click on them to enlarge them.

Personally, I think Jeppz95 made his life a bit harder with some of these NPCs (like Thrall) or he could have done a slightly better job with others (Nat Pagle, Gul'dan). Still, his effort is more than commendable and he has even taken the time to put captions below numerous of his images! Click here to view them all.

This might seem really weird that I bring this back up, but I checked out where my Gallery had been posted and found this thread :P

In regards to your closing statement; I agree, I could've done it better, but about halfway through my journey I started to get really lazy with some screenshots. Ysera was a good example, as I know that the only two locations I know of where she is in her dragon form are within the Dragon Soul raid and in Dragonblight. I cba going through Dragon Soul, and I tried going to Dragonblight, but due to the environment being all green (and her being transparent + green) she looked like crap, so I went with her elf model instead.

 

Still glad you and so many others enjoyed it :D

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.

      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
