Finally went through my Epic Collection and booster boxes of the new WoW TCG expansion, Timewalkers: War of the Ancients and once again I must say, Cryptozoic did an excellent job putting out another great set! With a huge set of hero cards from heroes and villains past and present, new abilities, allies and gear to choose from, this is turning out to be an awesome block. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the next two sets.
Each booster box comes with 36 packs, with 15 game cards per pack. I usually buy boxes through an online card gaming website, but you can find single packs at most Targets or Wal-Marts as well. If you’re interested in getting the Epic Collection box, you can also find those at Target and Wal-Mart and you get the following goodies:
- 1 Collector’s box
- 6 Booster packs
- 1 Playmat
- 1 Deck box
- 15 Card dividers
- 1 Visual Spoiler (has images of every card in the set)
- 5 Foil Hero cards
- 1 Loot card (generally it’s the common loot card, i.e. pet, but you have a chance at getting the uncommon or rare loot cards too, it hasn’t happened to me yet, lol)
Just wanted to share with you a couple of my favorite cards from this set:
This is an interesting card. The card on the right is numbered as “EA”, which stands for Extended Art. Extended Art cards are usually promo cards that are given out at events like Sneak Peaks, New Releases or Tournaments. And they are usually ”extended” versions of the original art pieces that are surrounded by the card text and borders. This card is neither; it’s a new art piece, which I think looks better than the original. I think it’s cool that Cryptozoic is now inserting these Extended Art cards in the packs.
Poor Rhonin. Did he really perish at the Battle of Theramoore, or is he really just ”lost in time”? Only Blizz time will tell….
Hey, these guys look familiar, lol.
And what everyone’s been waiting for, the phat loot cards! I’ve only redeemed the Eye of the Legion and the Demon Hunter’s Aspect loot cards, not sure what I want to do with the Feldrake, as I’m not really fond of the recolored drake mount. I might try to sell it though, we’ll see.
Eye of the Legion
The Eye of Legion is a nice addition for any pet collectors out there. It shares the same model as the upcoming Darkmoon Eye that’s going to be released with the new additions to the Faire. It’s considered an Undead pet for you pet battlers, so if you’re missing this type of creature, here’s a good pick up for you.
Demon Hunter’s Aspect
The Demon Hunter’s Aspect is a fun on-use item that transforms you into a version of Illidan himself, complete with blindfold and tattoos. The disguise lasts for 5 minutes, has a 30 minute cooldown and has unlimited uses. Using this item also changed the color and style of my hair, Arv currently sports short dark hair. I’m not sure how this item works for the other races or females, but it is a cool item regardless. I only wished that it would also give me some temporary War Glaives to play with, lol.
I only have “eyes” for you
So do you want your own Eye of Legion to follow you around too? Well, you’re in luck, I have two eyes to give away to two lucky readers, all you have to do is leave a comment at the bottom of this post. You can comment as much as you would like, but I’ll only count your name once. Your comment must be in by Saturday, October 26th at 12 am US-EST for you to be included in the drawing. Once I have all the names, I’ll throw them into my opened Puzzle Box of Yogg-Saron (aka hat) and draw out two random peeps. I will update this post with the winners and email them with the codes to redeem from Landro Longshot. Good luck to all!
