Main Talk: Kara Cards & Purify

Ben Brode responded directly to the concerns about Purify. While we highly recommend you go watch the entire video and hear Brode’s words directly from him, the gist is that he thinks the criticism is fair.

The other huge point is that Purify will not be added to the Arena pool of cards.

Hey there Angry Chickens,

So many of the cards revealed recently from the new adventure have a focus on playing spells, and many of them are from classes that we're not used to seeing these effects from.  Do you think this is at all driven by the fact that so many Tavern Brawls become mage dominated because of their spell synergy?  

Thanks, and stay angry, my friends.

Greetings, Bantam Berserkers!

For the longest time it seemed apparent that Warcraft characters could either be Legendaries or Heroes, but not both. Now the that "Medivh, the Guardian" is a thing, do you see other characters becoming both? Are there any heroes you'd like to see become cards, or Legendaries you'd like to see as heroes? Since my first WoW PC was a Dwarven Hunter, I'd personally like to see Hemet become a hunter skin. How about you?

Job's done!
