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

      This week's Brawl honours the 3 previous Hearthstone World Champions!
      The 2018 World Championship is about to begin and Team 5 is celebrating by giving us a very special Tavern Brawl. In this Brawl, you get to play with decks that the previous world champions from 2014, 2015 and 2016 used on their way to the top. Your player name will even change to the respective Champion: Firebat, Ostkaka or Pavel!
      Here are the deck archetypes you can get:
      Firebat's Undertaker Hunter Firebat's Ramp Druid Firebat's Miracle Rogue Firebat's Zoolock Ostkaka's Patron Warrior Ostkaka's Oil Rogue Ostkaka's Freeze Mage Pavel's Tempo Mage Pavel's Malygos Miracle Rogue Pavel's Midrange Shaman Pavel's C'Thun Warrior Pavel's Malygos OTK Druid You might think: "why would I want to play a deck from 2014 with cards that have been nerfed"? Well, all cards are on their pre-nerfed versions, therefore they are basically in the same state as when originally used by each World Champion. So, say hello to pre-nerf Undertaker, Leper Gnome, Hex and many others.
      Amnesiac can never catch a break.
      A slight inconsistency is that cards that generate other cards or tokens, like Piloted Shredder or Babbling Book, can generate cards/tokens from later expansions. For example, my opponent's dead Shredder created Friendly Bartender, a card that neither Champion had encountered at their time.
      Enjoy the Brawl and tune in to the World Championship this weekend!

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!
