The new alternate hero that has been added this month in Blizzard’s Hearthstone is Tyrande Whisperwind, a substitute for the normal priest hero avatar who is Anduin Wrynn. It is a hero that can be considered as a long awaited addition to Hearthstone’s cosmetic arsenal as it is a fan favorite figure since the days of Warcraft 3. Similarly to some other alternate heroes that the player may purchase or otherwise gain in Hearthstone, like Magni Bronzebeard for example, Tyrande not only offers a different hero appearance set and emotes, but also offers an alternate card back for the player that gained the right to use this hero.
Specifically, one needs to unlock Tyrande in order to gain her card back (it is impossible to do without this), and the way of unlocking her is not via a purchase but through a subscription to twitch prime. Should you subscribe there until the end of this promotion (official ending date is 5th of November) you will be provided with a gift code that unlocks this particular hero, which is quite a tempting offer for any player of Hearthstone that wants to spice up his gameplay a bit.
Tyrande’s card back is one that should not be missing by anyone who enjoys collecting such cosmetic and fun trophies in the game, as it is one exceptionally well designed and one that really matches the spirit of the hero that it represents. The colors of the Tyrande card back is ranging from silver to petrol blue, and in general, the colder and bluer shades are predominant. It is a color palette matching the origins of the character, being a night elf and the high priestess of Elune. On the other hand, the design of the details on the card back, being more edgy and metallic, bring out the warrior part of Tyrande, who is not only a devoted priestess of the moon but simultaneously one of the strongest warriors in the Warcraft universe. Ultimately, this combination of aggressive design and tranquil colors create the desired outcome as they perfectly describe the nature of Tyrande, being a righteous night elf that is always ready to defend her brethren and world but never with unjustified rage.
One thing is sure about the Tyrande card back, it is a card back that will enrich and offer to any collector the satisfaction of having one more card back, and especially one that complements so finely and elegantly the new offered in the game. Hurry up and get Tyrande and her card back before the promotion is over!
