WoW TCG Returning With Wrathgate Expansion Set

Cryptozoic Entertainment, the new publisher for the WoW TCG, announced the company’s first product in what it hopes will be a long-standing relationship with Blizzard Entertainment.  The Wrathgate expansion set is the second of three planned sets for Wrath of the Lich King, and will be released to the public on May 25.

Overall, it’s the 11th set to be released.  The upcoming booster will add a massive 220 new cards to the coffers of dedicated players.  Characters, attacks, materials and locations have been pulled straight out of Northrend and from the Argent Crusade faction itself.  Even Tirion Fordring is playable.

Fear not players of the TCG.  The Blizzard Store and its expensive ponies are not causing a removal of loot cards.  Players will have a chance to pull one of three new loot cards from the 19-card booster packs.  The three loot cards are: Landro’s Gift, Statue Generator, and the soon-to-be-insanely-expensive-eBay-auction Blazing Hippogryph.

Yes folks, a WoW TCG exclusive mount is back in action.

To celebrate the rebirth of the TCG, Cryptozoic is hosting a kickass sneak preview contest.  The winning pair of interested players will be flown out to Irvine, where Cryptozoic is located, and be the first people to see the Wrathgate cards.  Simply write a 250 word or less piece on “why you want to come to Irvine and play the the TCG with us.”
