Cryptozoic just released new details about their upcoming expansion to the WoW TCG – Reign of Fire.
The first talks about the loot card distribution:
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:
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:
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!
