Well, more like the more money you spend on cards, the higher chance of you acquiring certain cards for certain builds. A shitty player with a lot of disposable income can still lose to a good player who doesn't spend a dime but knows how to build.

Same, but I figure they don't want to ruin the sales of the TCG by introducing a way to enjoy the same game without giving a cent to Blizzard. Which is understandable, from a souless, exploitative capitalistic viewpoint

@Valtion's art

They gave Rexxar a bow, boohoo, he should throw axes!

Since when does Rexxar use a bow? I'm calling shenanigans!

That's the first artwok in which we see Anduin wielding both Light and Void... Just like good ol' Benedictus.

I love it. I hope we could see Anduin doing this in-game, being a force of balance, instead of only the perfect purity and holiness of the Light.

I guess the the dwarf who narrates everything in the game doesn't count.

I am somewhat surprised, actually. You'd think they'd get some Trolls and Dwarves... no? Okay...

Ech. Sorta.

Considering Elves, Dwarves and Trolls were introduced at the same time, so you'd think they'd include them all if they did the one.

On the other hand, Elves were upgraded to be one of the faces of the Warcraft setting, whereas that wasn't the case for Dwarves and Trolls.

Can't say I'm too surprised at the exclusion of the other races, mind you.

Well, if you're only going to start with 9 "heroes" and want to capitalize on the most well-known characters...

Then again, having Rexxar for hunters instead of Sylvanas is an interesting choice.

I expect there will be more heroes added, probably before the end of the beta period. I'd certainly call it premature to write off the game based on it's day 1 presentation only.

I never associated Sylvanas with the hunter class honestly. She's a ranger yes, but Rexxar comes a lot closer to WoW's hunters in that regard, what with him actually using various pets and all.

There's always Vol'jin. He's... kind of a hunter? He uses a bow and a few pieces of official artwork show him accompanied by a raptor.

Course, he's also got a bunch of shadow hunter type powers which are decidedly not your standard hunter stuff.

They should have use Nessingwary. There you have a badass hunter and a dwarf.

Hunters have Black Arrow (other effect) and silence (but as a shot).

The WC3, RPG, TCG and WoW takes on Uther look kind of plain compared to the fancy version used in HoW and BALLS.

And what do you call the Forsaken then?


But yeah, if you ask me the problem with both Sylvanas and Vol'jin is that they have non-hunter additions to their arsenal (Sylvanas shadow, Vol'jin da voodoo).
Rexxar actually has less in his sleeve than the average hunter, he doesn't have arcane or nature powers (which always seemed kinda random on a hunter to me, especially the arcane).

The thing is none of the famous characters we know matches exactly the hunter class in WoW. All I'm saying is I can see why they went with Rexxar as the more "logical" choice to represent hunters as opposed to Sylvanas.

Well, of course artwork will always be fancier and more detailed especially compared the the engine Warcraft III uses but the basic design that's recognizeable throughout all the pieces remains the same.
