Latest World of Warcraft TCG Releases

Blood of Gladiators Boosters – Available 24th March 2009

The crowd roars as t
he arena gates open. Two teams clash as steel and magic are called forth. An elite few manage to rise above the fray and become immortal. The price is paid in blood on the sand of the arena floor. Even in death, a Gladiator’s legacy lives forever. Dare you risk everything for such glory?

Blood of Gladiators is the 8th booster release for the World of Warcraft TCG, and builds on the Drums of War booster set by adding new arena style locations, as well as new heroes. It also introduces dual-class allies, and for those of you who play the online MMO….new loot cards!

Last month we promised you more info on the loot cards, so this month we’re delivering and giving you a glimpse into what you can expect if you’re one of the lucky ones who get hold of these cards. As with the last few sets, there are 3 rarities, super-common, uncommon and rare. The Blood of Gladiators super-common card is the Sandbox Tiger. Now everyone can have their own Spectral Tiger with this loot card, which gives you a stack of 50 Spectral Tigers for you or your friends to sit on. Simply pop down the tiger and take it in turns to have a ride!

The next loot card, the un-common one, is the Centre of Attention. This is one for all of you WoW players that want to stick out in a raid, and gives you an epic purple shirt. Putting it on gives you an effect that causes you to flex and pose, just like you know you want to…

Finally, the rare loot card. The one everyone will be chasing. Blood of Gladiators doesn’t disappoint, and gives you the chance to act out epic battles…with the safety of foam swords! The Foam Sword Rack gives you a rack of foam swords in various colours, and lets you beat up on your friends and foes with these super-fast weapons. Get hunting these loot cards now if you want to be in with a chance of getting one!
