Servants of the Betrayer TCG expansion released, including footage of in-game loot cards


The WoW TCG Servants of the Betrayer expansion pack is upon us, and you know what that means: New Loot cards! That means we should start seeing Papa Hummel's Old-Fashioned Pet Biscuits, Goblin Weather Machines, and X-51 Nether-Rockets (and Nether-Rockets EXTREME) popping up in game soon. The official TCG site has released video footage of all 3 items in action. From the footage of Nether-rocket above, it looks to me like this should the perfect mount for anyone who's wanted to create a WoW machinima recreation of Dr. Strangelove. Also, for the record, it looks like you will actually be able to buy both speeds of rocket from one code, so no need to get a second card if you want to buy the slow one now and the fast one later.

Check out videos of the other two items after the break.

Here we see the Goblin Weather Machine in action, which create your own little weather system to follow you around when you right click it. It's random, and features sun, snow, and two, count 'em, TWO types of rain. Probably worth a giggle or two if you come across it randomly, though I don't see these being so coveted as others. Still, If you've always wanted to roleplay Azeroth's version of the Weather Wizard, here's your chance, I suppose.

And finally, last but not least, we have the footage of Papa Hummel's Pet Biscuits. We did get a slight preview of them in the form of a pet growth bug on the 2.4 test server a while back, but now you can get the real thing. This loot card is a bit different from previous ones in that it's actually "super-common" loot, meaning there will likely be at least 2 in every booster box. This is a good thing, too, as each biscuit is consumed on use, and you only get 50 per a card. I have to admit, I'm a little bit disappointed by the limited amount from each card, and by the fact that you can't use it on Hunter or Warlock pets in-game. My Hunter was very much looking forward to sending her giant boar charging across Alterac Valley to see how many Horde she could send scattering in fright. Still, This card will still grow your Sleepy Willy, and that has a good chance of leading to fun times .
