Last year, our University Relations and World of Warcraft teams challenged college and university students to submit an original 3D work of art that would be suitable for World of Warcraft. We received many amazing entries, and finally managed to pick the winners.
Please join us in congratulating them and discussing their works in the comments below.
Whether you’re a seasoned drafter or new to the game, we’ve taken the time to break down the final installment of the Aftermath TCG block by Cryptozoic for you. Discover the secrets of Uldum, the mysterious Tol'vir, and a load of new Monsters who await you in Aftermath: Tomb of the Forgotten, the latest expansion in the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game.
The latest addition to the World of Warcraft TCG continues its Monster theme. The Tol'vir make their debut, bringing with them an assortment of new Monster heroes for players to use. Making unusual allies, the Tol’vir possess two classes, making it easier for you to use effects that require a certain class in play. Fans of Throne of the Tides will find that cards like Bottled Void and Baxtan, Herald of the Flame are now easier to trigger than ever.
Five dual-class Monster heroes will give players the chance to combine two different types of class cards in the same deck! Play as a mage-warrior, a druid-hunter, or one of three other different combinations! The dual-class heroes provide a new option for playing the game in a manner unlike anything printed before.
Expect to see ferocious satyrs, gargantuan ogres, and of course, murlocs. Lots and lots of murlocs. Fans from the online game will recognize many of the cards from Tomb of the Forgotten to come right out of Uldum, its quests, and its dungeons. Choose to represent the Alliance, the Horde, or Monsters, as plenty of new tools for each faction will become available.
Tomb of the Forgotten completes the Aftermath block and includes one Monster hero for each class, so new players have plenty of deck building options available to them. Be a courageous Alliance warrior, a renowned Horde shaman, a fishy murloc hunter, or take up one of several other options. Whether you're looking to play with friends or you're looking to jump into organized play, there's no better time to start than with Tomb of the Forgotten.
Moreover, if you don't know how to play and are looking for an easy way to get started, check out the Class Starter decks or the Champion Decks. Both serve as ideal learning tools for the game, and will help you understand how to build a deck around the class you want. You can start with the class and faction combination that you play in World of Warcraft online, or you can pick up a Champion Deck and represent a character from Azeroth’s history, including Sylvanas, Jaina, or even Hogger!
Oh, and one more thing. Tomb of the Forgotten marks the return of this guy–
Thrall's back, and in epic form. He is Tomb of the Forgotten’s master hero, giving any player a chance to become the mighty Go'el. Summon him as your new hero in any deck you choose to play, or get him into play faster by bringing the four essences of the iconic orc together from the elemental planes. Bring the four aspects of Thrall together and make Thrall whole to play this master hero for free!
Tomb of the Forgotten contains three all-new Loot™ cards, which are randomly inserted in booster packs. Be the first to own a White Riding Camel in-game, this expansion’s rare mount. Climb into a Golden Sarcophagus, or add a Sand Scarab to your pet collection.
Aftermath: Tomb of the Forgotten is available for purchase in the Blizzard Online Store.

Leader of the Zandalar trolls' assault on the vaults, Gara'jal is determined to crack open this trove of ancient mystery and bring back whatever arcane power and knowledge he can find. Gifted with dark talents and surrounded by a loyal cadre of Zandalar mystics, he has broken through the outer walls and will not rest until the vaults belong to him.
In 25 player raids, Gara'jal chooses 3 other players from the raid to turn into Voodoo Dolls.
In Heroic Difficulty, three Severers of Souls attack.
Ancient records tell of these legendary rulers, powerful mogu who carved an empire from the very rock of Pandaria. Their names still cause the land to tremble: Zian of the Endless Shadow, Meng Sharpfang, Qiang Steelskin, and Sebotai Swiftfoot. Some say their spirits lurk in the vaults, lost in ghostly memories of battle and glory.
No premades :C dammit!
Incidentally, the title is a "little" misleading on the premade. Can you rename it a little to indicate they might potentially be out in the future, but they're not available yet?
Gawd that Go'el artwork. Want it badly. :D
Arcanite Reaper HOOOOOOOOOOO!
Re: PvP mounts: Probably rated BG/Arena mounts, aka the ones that actually have more than a cost of time to obtain, but also require skill.
if rbg mounts not gona be account bound then what about the second mount u get that is the same as the first 1 is that being replaced with plz plz a fly mount or is it removed?
I'm honestly not very happy about the account-wide mount thing. The Albino Drake and Red Dragonhawk, which were still a bit of a challenge in Cataclysm, will be completely trivial to obtain.
Albino Drake has been easy to get since BC; all of the faction mounts(33), all of the faction flyers(IE all 7 gryphons/wyverns), then grind for the Kurenai/Mag'hari, Skyguard and Netherwing; any combination of those three would give you the last 10 you needed.
