Title: MW Academy Druid and Elementalist announced
Post by: iNano78 on July 08, 2018, 09:16:54 PM
Names of upcoming 2 Academy mages released by retailers, such as GreatBoardGames.ca. Let the speculation - and official spoiler season - begin.

Saw this other day on a couple other sites and I guess total of two weeks now but would like to see some actual artwork for it understand if they don't want to release any of the abilities yet sure but I think spoiled Lee artwork would be just fine

Nothing from Arcane Wonders yet, so it's all we got. But google finds me this:

Those two faces are old though. They've been in that spread image with all the mages.

Yes. Not sure any non-tester knew what mage type the Elementalist's art belonged to though - or that he was an Academy mage. Or the order of releases, since Arcane Wonders keeps pushing a different piece of Academy mage art lately that didn't show up on either of these sets (but is likely coming on one of the next two Academy sets... presumably).

For those who haven't seen it, here is the collage SirJason speaks of:

If I was an optimist I would suggest that 'academy night elf' is actually an Arena Elementalist. Same coloured hair, different sex and just a suggestion of blue/white frostiness on the extreme right.

Let's hope for a bunch of strong ice spells for the water school to boost the Siren! :3

Back when I played DND 3.5 I think there was a race of elves called pale moon elves who had the white hair since the had some drown blood and also lived in the northern ice lands u know like wisconsin. Might be she is based off of that which would be cool for arena. Lol cool it's funny cause talking about ice. :P

It's been over 2 weeks. No comment from any official AW employee or Arcane Duels ambassador, etc. No card spoilers. No confirmation (nor denial) regarding the sets available for preorder.

Surely it couldn't be harmful to reveal a card or two at this point.

...

Right?

GenCon is a few days away; that's where all the news will come from, and if it doesn't, I will let y'all know what's going down personally.

I'm purchasing Druid and Elementalist next Thursday. At which point they're free to be spoiled.

With this (non-existent) brand strategy, nobody should be surprised that this game will not survive in the long run.

There will be a limited number of "pre-release" copies at GenCon.  The retailers will receive them in October.

Was going to ask the same thing. Other years, Gen Con (pre)releases have arrived at North American retailers by late Sept or early Oct. Not sure what's holding up Academy Druid and Elementalist.

They're being released by a company that no longer cares about the game.
