World of Warcraft:Heroes of Azeroth Hero Cards
Giving a brief overview of this multi-faceted phenomenon is a bit like trying to explain the plot of Lost and the storyline to Lord of the Rings in a few sentences but we'll give it a go. Basically two factions, the Horde and the Alliance, are battling for supremacy. To start playing you must choose a hero from one of these factions. The subsequent cards you play allow you to equip your hero with weapons, use spells and talents, gather allies and complete quests. It's a bit like Top Trumps gone mad.

You should be because this all-encompassing universe contains thousands of characters, weapons, quests and spells. But that's exactly why you'll be sucked into the World of Warcraft the second you start collecting, swapping and battling. Must dash, weÂ’re desperate to find a Thunderhead Hippogryph Loot card.
