hearthstone Community Contribution: Hearthstone Legendaries in World of Warcraft

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.

I'm one of those people that haven't really played WoW, because I'm broke.

Nope! Him and Nexus-Champion Saraad are original Hearthstone characters!

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

      Card reveal for Knights of the Frozen Throne continues with Blood Razor, a neutral Legendary and Prince Taldaram.
      If you missed previous reveals or need information about the latest Hearthstone expansion, you can find them in our hub.
      Warrior's Blood Razor
      The new Warrior card has been revealed via The Legend of Slag. The card makes King Mosh good and battlecry & deathrattle effects make it a flexible choice for many Warrior cards.

      Prince Taldaram
      This is a new neutral Legendary card, revealed exclusively on Hearthpwn. Possible synergies are Malygos, Leeroy Jenkins or Prophet Velen.

      Blood-Queen Lanathel is a new legendary Warlock card that was just revealed via PCGamesN.
      If you've missed any of the previously revealed cards, feel free to check them out here.
      Warlock's Blood-Queen Lana'thel
      The new Legendary Warlock card synergizes with Cruel Dinomancer and cards like Doomguard, Soulfire up to Malchezaar's Imp & Silverware Golem. It doesn't even have Charge and due to ist high mana cost it cannot be deployed early.

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.

      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival.
