    Update this evening added the missing legendary slots for the EVIL classes.

    Sorry that we still don't have good indicators for what slots are for what.

    Approximately $0.80 a pack is not bad for a bundle.

    So the E.V.I.L. classes get nice new hero powers but what do the good guys get to compensate for that?

      In short: the fact they don't have to devote any of their 10 cards to invoke. This frees up the space for sidequests and the explorer dragons, which may end up as good as Galakrond in practice, but even if not they're certainly more flexible.

      All that being said, I agree it does look asymmetric. Then again, Hunter got and extra legendary in TGT, and that didn't help out the class at all...

        Oh my god yeah, there was an expansion named TGT. Almost forgot. Still the worst expansion to date.

    So Evil classes will get 3 legendaries yeah? Sounds like the 5 Galakronds will be the typical uncraftable/undustable legendaries for free. And the evil classes will still have their two legendaries.. 

    can anyone confirm this either way? 

    Also i’m stoked on this expansion and will definitely preorder both. Ulduum was my first order and i have loved having almost every card

      Sinti or Flux (i.e. someone actually watching all the streams) confirmed in another thread yes the EVIL classes will get their two normal legendaries plus Galakrond (so 3 in all for those 5 classes) - that's why this set is listed as having 140 cards instead of the normal 135.

          People have been saying this for YEARS! Yet the same people keep it alive by constantly complaining on these sites. Thank you!

      I feel you man. I want to have a warrior other than Garrosh SO BAD, but now both options cost money. Very tempting, but seeing as I regretted the only two preorders I've ever done for this game as soon as I finished opening all the packs, I think I'll learn from history and save money.

    we can compare the invokes from the Galakrond classes we know:
    Warlock: Summon 2 1/1 imps on board
    Rogue: Get a random Lackey into your hand
    Priest: Get a random minion into your hand

    Remember, Each "Galakrond invoke" card is also the Hero Power of the classes Galakrond



    if you ask me, warlocks Invoke seems pretty good, since you go aggressive/tempo style with those imps before playing Galakrond, and you also gain tempo when you play Galakrond too. 

    Rogues Galakrond seems pretty bonker when played, making up to 4 drawn cards cost 0 is very good if they didn't cost 0 from the beginning, you will though spend 3 mana to play a lackey from hero power to being played, could be worth it in longer terms.  The invoke for rogue is pretty nasty, since you get a lackey for just playing an invoke card.

    Priests Galakrond alone is super strong against control/tempo decks for it's minion removals, The hero power is great to generate minions when you need it but you lose the healing ability which could be critical against you. The invoke is okay, Bonkers if you get the right minions, terrible if you get the wrong minions in wrong timing, RNG Fiesta all the way. you can also get hand issues too from invoke/Hero Power.

    Well, I was planning on avoiding the $80 pre-purchase this time, but then I saw that Warrior skin....

    Will the pre-order bundles be available in-game (using coins)?

      No, you cannot use in game coin on bundles.
