    Spoiler - So Reno Jackson....

    So if you are playing the Hearthstone adventure you already saw that Reno Jackson is actually a dragon called Renogos, will we see that in World of Warcraft? I think it's time for another dragon expansion.

    I have no clue who Reno Jackson is.

    But I'll take anything that'll lead to Blizzard updating dragon models in the game. Dragons, Gnolls, Vanilla skyboxes, they need to get on updating those.

    Hearthstone lore is... sliiiightly detached from its source world, iirc. It's fun to see them in Uldum/Mechagon, for sure. But to take all hearthstone stuff as canonical for the Azeroth universe, eh.. I don't know. Did a random Ethereal really use a Plague of Uldum to resurrect Galakrond without any of us noticing?

    Or was it just happening in a "fictional" card game, a card game that exists inside the world of Azeroth?

    No. What happens in Hearthstone does not dictate what happens in World of Warcraft.

    There are numerous examples of this: Ragnaros, Lightlord; Death Knight hero cards; just look at the collection, I guess.

    Reno Jackson is a member of the Explorers League. (remember that northern section of Ironforge Hall of Explorers?). If you've played BfA, and did the Mechagon stuff in 8.2, the Explorers League became one of the rotating Quest givers, and would appear in the Quest hub on certain days.

    nope, member of the League of Explorers, and a Hero, and as I've stated if you've done Mechagon in 8.2 appears with the explorers league as quest givers.

    Sir Finley Mrrgglton was also a Hearthstone original and he was a quest giver/world quest person in Stormheim.

    Hearthstone has never been canon, it's fictional game in the warcraft universe.

    Was Reno Jackson the guy with the cowboy hat and thick mustache? I haven't played Hearthstone since the release of the Lich King patch, which I believe was some time during Legion.

    I don't think WoW could handle a chin like that. His in-game model just doesn't match up.

    I take it back, BfA is not the lowest the games lore could have gone, this thread proves that.

    Yes and they arnt the only thing that became canon from hearthstone. Sir Finley was added in Legion. Along with Reno and Elise in BFA and the Fungal(the little mushroom dudes). These are just some examples that i can remember off the top of my head.

    Hearthstone's artstyle has really gotten stale.. Gwent and Legends of Runeterra has really good art now.

    He's the somehow even more Indiana Jonesy Indiana Jones than Harrison Jones, yes.

    Ah yes, I remember him! I wouldn't mind him becoming a WoW NPC, especially if he's a blue dragon.

    If this makes into World of Warcraft canon, hoooo boy, that'll be fun

    Edit: Brann;"So Reno is a dragon, somehow the most normal thing that has happened today"

    He's in Mechagon, he doesn't do much but he's there

    Edit: currently no indication of being a dragon though, but we've seen dragons infiltrate societies before, they were all Black dragons but my point still stands

    Oh, no no no no. Hearthstone is 100% canon to WoW. It is! It really, really is!
    I did a Necromancer thing. Check it out! All feedback welcome!
    Update 08/17: I changed how the Bone spec's golem mechanic works, as well as some other minor changes.
    I also did a Bard thing! Questions, comments and ideas, all welcome!
    Update 09/02: Apparently the mods decided to merge my class concept thread with an existing one.

    Some things appearing in Hearthstone can become canon (N'zoth's appearance, Tortollans, etc) but not all of them for obvious reasons

    They shouldn't be considered truly canon unless they appear in game. That's when they become part of WoW canon
    This world don't give us nothing. It be our lot to suffer... and our duty to fight back.
