World of Warcraft TCG Loot - Loot Cards March of the Legion
Paper Airplane (Item), Robotic Homing Chicken (Item), Onyxia Kite (Item)
Paper Airplane Loot Card
The most common Loot item from March of the Legion will be a paper airplane manual! After getting the book from good ol’ Landro, you’ll be able to use it and get one of two types of paper airplanes: a small zeppelin or a flying machine that looks like something a gnome might whip up! Each use of the item will produce one of the two airplane models (it’s a 50% rate for both items). With the paper airplane in your bag, you can use that item and throw it at somebody. Once it reaches them, they can throw it back to you or anybody else they see. The best part about these airplanes is that you can make multiples, leave them in your inventory, and then BAM, you can unleash a swarm of paper on an unsuspecting target!
As you’re most likely looking at the card in terms of TCG applications, you’re probably wondering how this will work. Perhaps one of the most interesting abilities we’ve printed on a Loot card, Paper Airplane allows you to completely stall your opponent’s development. The best use for it may be in decks like the Omedus the Punisher rush deck. With the help of a little discard and some fast allies, you can often leave your opponent digging for answers. Are they hoping to peel a crucial removal effect off the top? A timely Paper Airplane could go a long way in keeping them from getting back in the game. Be careful, though, because they can throw it right back at you!
Robotic Homing Chicken Loot Card - Unique in-game item.
Let me say that again to let the awesomeness sink in: a robotic chicken. With rockets. Clearly, hilarity is the only thing that can ensue, right?
The cosmetic pet you get from turning in the Robotic Homing Chicken code will get you Landro’s newest addition to his exotic menagerie. Aside from making all the night elf chicks dig your character, the robotic homing chicken will occasionally do one of two things. Both involve his rockets taking him into the air. One of them involves him landing safely again, the other results in the rockets exploding and sending him to that big twelve-piece bucket in the sky.
The first thing you’ll notice about the TCG card is that it’s obviously not meant for serious, competitive decks. Multiplayer mayhem is where it’s at. Play one of these guys, and all of a sudden you’ll find boards getting blown up left and right. The more people, the crazier the potential Chicken damage. Take this little buddy to your next Gurubashi Grand Melee event, and watch how much everybody fears the chicken!
Onyxia Kite Loot Card - Unique in-game item.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have Onyxia follow you around wherever you go? Well, test groups showed that getting Onyxia herself was a bit too dangerous. You torch a couple of trial subjects, and everyone throws a tantrum . . . With the original idea scrapped, we went with the next best thing: an Onyxia kite!
Don’t worry, it won’t periodically light you on fire or send a horde of whelps at you. Wait till you see players’ reactions the first time you run through Shattrath with Onyxia behind you! Feeling a little cocky on your PvP server? Take Onyxia along to announce your upcoming ganking spree and watch the lowbies run. For those of you who like to make a grand entrance, this is the Loot item you’ve been waiting for! Also, don’t forget how electricity was discovered; if you fly the kite around long enough, you might see a cloud form and strike it.
For those of you looking at the TCG addition and its possible uses, just think about how nuts you’ll be able to get with protectors! Teach Sarmoth how to kite, and then negate the most threatening ally or hero for a single resource. For the players who are fans of the interaction between Sarmoth and Katsin Bloodoath, Kiting comes online the same turn and is both more difficult to shut down and less resource intensive to start up against most decks. Wait to see the look on your opponents’ faces as they get dragged around the battlefield, always just out of reach of the big blueberry of doom. At only one resource to use each turn, you’ll have plenty of resources left over to deal with the characters that aren’t chasing the Voidwalker around.
