    New TCG image...next expansion theme?

    WoW TCG posted a new image along with their release of the new TCG pack 'Reign Of Fire'.

    Whats interesting is that the artwork is suspiciously similar to what the next expansion has been rumored to be based on. Legion guy in the middle with alliance and horde next to him.

    What do you think?

    No. for two reasons.

    Thats Jaina prior to her change in pre mist event, see her blond hair?

    And thats Grom. Groms dead, he's not coming back.

    Seeing as how thats Archimonde, i dont think it means much. But maybe he ankhed or something idk. Probably doesnt mean much

    That Horde looks like Grom Hellscream to me, so I'd have to say no. Well maybe the theme could be similar but this definitely looks like it comes from the Warcraft 3 story. I'm pretty sure the alliance is Jania and the guy in between them is Archimonde.

    Do the TCG sets always follow the expansions in terms of theme? I don't follow them close enough to know. But as Traask said, Grom being there makes it unlikely to me, nevermind Jaina being the old Jaina.

    Rarely updated...

    Looks like it's based on WC3, not anything new. A lot of TCG sets are based on older lore.

    I hate how blizzard kills there own awesome characters, but still uses them in promotion. That 10th anniversary poster with Cairne in it.. it sucks knowing he's gone.

    Grom comes back to life along with Illidan.

    Archimonde and Hellscream, Sr.? Color me skeptical.

    read about pack and u will understand why we see *Old* Jana, Grom etc. *Since this expansion is the final in the "Timewalkers" block that pays tribute to past heroes and personalities in the Warcraft universe this loot change also makes a special tribute to all previous TCG loot.* + http://wowtcg.cryptozoic.com/products/reign-fire

    And this set is specifically called "Timewalkers" so, it's bound to have lots of stuff from different eras. I don't think this is in any way a preview of what's coming.

    Looks like the TCG theme is the battle for Mount Hyjal at the end of Warcraft 3. It's just the theme for the card deck, not a sign of the next expansion.

    Jaina, Archimonde, Grom.

    This is a scene from the 1st Battle of Mt. Hyjal (2nd battle was in Cata). So unless next expansion features a rehash of the CoT raid from BC, nope.
    Sometimes I think I should have rolled a Priest....

    "Timewalkers"
    what do you think that means? Let say it one more time
    "TIMEWALKERS"
    "TIME"

    pretty sure thats just a shoop of prexisting blizzard art.

    archimonde coming back wouldn't really be surprising. he wasn't just a normal man'ari eredar, so he and kil'jaedan could have become like the dreadlords, where you need to kill them either in the twisting nether or on argus. but grom, kinda hopefully, ain't ever coming back. unless maybe they do some kind of spirit thing, like with the emperor.

    Sorry that this is slightly OT, but what do people mean by "old Jaina?"

    It has nothing to do with the next expansion.

    They used to, but that stopped being the case I think sometime during Cataclysm.

    Before she got silver hair and glowing eyes from the mana bomb that destroyed Theramore.
