    As of November 30th, still no Shaman Galakrond reveal. Judging by the rest of the set, I feel like it's going to have a slower effect, suited for Control. Might interact with Overload. We'll see...!

    Why there is no dragon-themed cardback for December?? A missed opportunity

    Rogue is having an awesome set this time around.
    Can't say anything about Shamy, yet ...

      I agree to disagree, the Shammy Galakrond is not revealed yet. Shudderwock is still in until april. I hope the rest of shammies cards are good to level the scales. Ungoro was the most balanced expantion. I kind of feel the same with DoD... Most of the cards have new concepts. Anyone disagree?

    Every time we get a new card revealed and it is not a shaman card I get a little bit more sad.

    I am pretty sure though that this means we will be seeing shaman in the final reveal stream, which makes me happy.

    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.

      You do realize that no matter how you look at it, your comment can in no way do anything good. You are just wasting space. If you want to leave, that is your choice, but you don't have to leave this salty remark for everyone else who still likes the game to read. 

      I am sorry, but literally no one cares if you are leaving. And we care less about whether or not you think the game is dead.

        Already did, but sure dislike the truth, the game is in a death spiral

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