WoW TCG Update – Timewalkers: Reign of Fire

Cryptozoic just released new details about their upcoming expansion to the WoW TCG – Reign of Fire.

The first talks about the loot card distribution:

Time-Lost Relics

The Time-Lost Relics have been rediscovered by the Timewalkers in their journey through the past. Now you have a chance to uncover treasures from the past, as Reign of Fire, the third set in the Timewalkers Block, gives you the chance to open up any Loot Card™ from the previous twenty expansions of the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game!

The odds of opening up a Loot Card has also been improved (to 1:9 packs instead of 1:11 pack). That means you will get four Loot Cards per box, and there’s a whopping four rare Loot Cards per case!

The Reign of Fire Epic Collection will also contain one Loot Card, which can range from common to rare.

As a note, just because a Loot Card was common, uncommon, or rare in its original release doesn’t mean it shares that rarity in Reign of Fire. Some Loot Cards might be easier to obtain than before; others may be a lot harder to acquire.

I had read a rumor about this on another TCG site, so it wasn’t really a surprise to me.  Always good to see the drop rates increase on anything. =)

The next detail is about the crafting cards:

Crafting Cards

Normally, when you open up a booster pack, you have a chance at opening either a hero card or a crafting material. When you collected enough crafting materials, you could send them in for a special promo.

In this set, things have changed. Instead of opening up crafting materials, you might have a chance of opening up the crafting card itself.

That’s right. We’re making it easier for players to gain access to these crafting promos. Rather than collecting the materials needed and then sending them in to us so that you can get your promo, you have a chance to simply open the card in a booster pack!

Now this is pretty cool.  Usually, I’ll have to bundle the different crafting cards together from each set and send them off to Cryptozoic, where it would take 2 to 3 weeks to get the cards back.  Getting it instantly and saving on shipping is a plus.  Here is a couple crafting cards from this set:

And last, probably the most exciting bit of news regarding this set:

God Packs

Some lucky fans may open a booster pack that contains not one, not two, but fifteen Loot Cards – primarily rare Loot cards – instead of the standard cards you expect to open. That isn’t an accident. That’s a God Pack!

God Packs were created internally to be as juiced and as exciting as possible. And they’re very rare. If you open up one of these, then congratulations!

Hoooooooooly shit!  A freakin’ pack that contains nothing but loot cards?  I’m definitely looking forward to snagging one of these, opening booster packs will more exciting that ever, lol!

So make sure to buy your packs or boxes when the set comes out next week, happy loot card hunting!

    • Thanks! I bet this set sells out quickly, with what they’re doing with all the loot cards. The booster packs/boxes could command a high dollar in the future; a box of the Fires of Outland (which is where the Spectral Tiger mount came from) is still pretty pricey on eBay for a set that old.

  1. God packs are indeed awesome, but the problem is that you have little to no chance to find one if you are just buying individual booster packs. You see, cheaters can cherry pick the packs for the god packs very easily before they even make it to the store shelves! I’ve seen it first hand.

    I wrote up a post about how the cheaters prosper and we all lose out, as well as how to give yourself a chance to actually get a god pack. Check out the post here:

    • You make a good point, this is why I buy my packs by the box and not through hobby stores. The only other packs I would buy that are not from a booster box are the ones from the Epic Collection sets or ones that come in Blister packs, like the ones you can find at Target. I believe that this expansion will become more rare than the Fires of Outland set, lol.

      I figure getting a God pack was a long shot anyways, so I really didn’t get my hopes up for one. I’m a collector at heart, so making a complete set of the expansion is what I was aiming for. =)
