World Of Warcraft Races In Hearthstone

Hearthstone has Beasts, Murlocs, Pirates, Demons, Dragons, Totems, and even Mechs. But where are the Orcs? The Gnomes? The Pandarens? Hearthstone has 7 'races' or 'tribes' but none of them are a playable race from World of Warcraft. People have been asking to include these races on existing cards ever since the game was in beta. If Blizzard were to go back and retrofit the 13 playable races from World of Warcraft into all of the existing Hearthstone cards, it would give Humans 40 minion cards and Worgen only 3 minions. That is the most extreme of examples, but it just goes to show that cards would need to be created to fill out some of the races' ranks.

Below is a list of all of the cards that would need to be retrofitted, categorized by race, rarity, and card type. Click on a race to jump to it's section.

"Recent discoveries have shown that humans are descended from the barbaric vrykul, half-giant warriors who live in Northrend.

When the scattered remnants of the Legion on Azeroth rallied together with the vile satyrs centuries later, the night elves again rose to meet the threat.
