    Question Unlocking New Heroes...

    EDIT: I now see how we may get other heroes to play as, such as Illidan who was shown in the trailer...

    Practice mode: Hone your abilities and test out new deck ideas against A.I. opponents of basic or expert skill levels, and unlock new playable heroes in the process.

    Seems like you can unlock new heroes simply by practicing. Or I guess it could mean you can't practice with all current heroes right off the bat?


    Note the bottom where it says "standard decks". I think it's fair to assume that hitting the arrow would take us to "intermediate" decks, or a similar name. I'm wondering if this is where other heroes such as Illidan make an appearance. It seemed odd for me to see him so clearly in the trailer but not as a selectable character. All I can think is that he might be the avatar of a more complex Warlock hero or something along those lines. What do you think? A different hero avatar for the more complex the deck? Or am I thinking too much and the next step across is just decks made by the player? lol Curiosity... it kills me :P

    In one of the videos they hit the arrow and it goes from Standard Decks to Expert Decks. Think it was the gameplay video on youtube. He then uses Gul'dan as the Warlock.

    In the gameplay trailer (Building Fire), hitting the 'next' button goes to expert decks and so on, but they only appear to be elite versions of the standard deck (Ie, the expert Magic Deck is a Jania Proudmoore, just wit the prefix "Expert". Hopefully, this is just an "improved version" of standard decks, so Arthas and Illidan might still appear (probably appear). I am really hoping that Varian Wyrnn or Tirion Fordring (or better yet, Anduin Lothar) will be playable.

    So far, it would appear that the heroes are:

    Warrior - Garrosh the Hated (Hellscream)
    Shaman - Thrall (Former leader of the Horde)
    Rogue - ???
    Paladin - Uther Lightbringer (Former leader of the Silver Hand)
    Hunter - ???
    Druid - Malfurion Stormrage (Illidan's brother)
    Warlock - ???
    Mage - Jania Proudmoore (FYI: Arthas' former fiance)
    Priest - (Anduin Wyrnn?)

    Ah, I must have missed that bit :S Kinda of a wasted thread then lol

    Does make me more curious where Illidan is though... A skin for the Warlock maybe? (Or some other class)

    Hunter - Rexxar (Neutral Horder Hero, Half Orc/Half Ogre)
    Druid - Malfurion Stormrage (Illidan's brother)
    Warlock - Gul'dan (Probably most famous Orc Warlock)
    Mage - Jania Proudmoore (FYI: Arthas' former fiance)
    Priest - (Anduin Wyrnn?)
    Filled in a few for you there It does look like Anduin to me too.
    I have to imagine that you'd be able to get skins for the classes at some point. Basically like LoL. But hopefully, you can earn them in game as well as buying them.

    if illidan is a hero, than he'll either be a warlock or a rogue. or both.

    all I know is that I like his card

    I think he could go either way really. I can see him as a Warlock but easily as a Rogue too considering his blades and stealth lol

    we know there's a normal illidan card. but here's the deal:

    1 - among the 4 "serious" people talking on the trailer, 3 are confirmed heroes (thrall, jaina and garrosh) and one is illidan. that leads us to think perhaps there'll be an illidan hero;

    2 - what if there are normal card versions of thrall, jaina, anduin, garrosh, valeera, gul'dan, uther, rexxar and malfurion?

    It's reasonable to assume that they may do both hero and minion versions of certain characters. The main WoW TCG has essentially done the same with some of its allies also appearing as heroes in other sets.

    It's also worth noting that some of the minion cards appear to replace your heroes when you summon them, as Jaraxxus did in the gameplay demo.

    People need to stop with this nonsense.
    You really think Blizz would show a game off at PAX to just say "Ha! We got you chumps! April Fool!" I don't think so...

    And this isn't a TCG, it's a CCG.

    It's not even April

    e: Also I am pretty sure Illidan is "just" an Ally card rather than a Hero
    His card is here on the official site

    I'd also be surprised if Illidan ends up being a hero. I didn't see any of the heroes as being cards except Jaraxxus who is a card that turns into a hero because of what it does. Both Illidan & Tirion Fordring are cards that do not become heroes like Jaraxxus.

    Also the april's fool thing is just dumb, I can't believe people actually think that this was april's fool.

    Illidan and Arthas are cards, so I don't think that will happen. Though, I could see the possibility of other character representing the same Heroes as these ones in the future, but we'll see.

    Maybe. But then again they started claiming it was an early April Fool's joke on the 22nd so they'll probably claim it is a late April Fool's joke after the 1st.

    Having them finally understand something as simple as this at that point would make a crawling snail look like a bolt of lightning.

    Because people on these forums always tend to assume that the entire world shares the same interests as them. So if they don't like it then nobody likes it, and why would Blizzard make a game that nobody likes. Yep must be a joke...
