Orc Hump

Regarding Orc posture, want to add upright orcs eventually but that won’t be part of this update, no guarantee or eta. If/when we introduce It would be as an option, not replacement of current posture. For every person who doesn’t like it, there are 2 others that love the hump:)

Sneak Peak at New Hero – Chen Stormstout

Hearthstone

Season 5 begins
Season 4 comes to a close and if you managed to get rank 20 (which I’m sure you did) you received a quite relevant Naxx card back and now S5 is Icecrown themed.

“When attempting to play the card, Kel’Thuzad pops up to say: “This is Heroic Naxxramas! I won’t stand for such cheap tactics here!” Alexstrasza is then destroyed and your mana is not refunded.”
