I believe they will be doing card previews after the con ends. As such, I will leave it to them to post card spoilers. But I will say things might get a bit chilly with the elementalist...

Ignore original post. I'm at Gen Con and have already bought Druid. I'll get Elementalist later.

Also hello forum, long time no see  ;)
Our Lord has returned! Just in time for frost spells, I suspect. Hallelujah! :P

So these are at Gencon now, but are we still expecting the October ish release of these expansion for those not at the evnt or will it be available sooner? Can I pre-order both? When will arcanewonder have it on site to buy(October)?

I'm now speculating and giving thoughts below

I like the idea of academy Druid. Maybe more than just plants to use, such as insects. Maybe some plant type enchantments, attach to an enemy and a seed grows within them or a weed/parasite plant. Seems cool, we'll see.

I was expecting a necromancer but I'm ok with them not doing one or if he is in the spring 2019 release. I think arena necro has plenty of tools to use, while adding cards can provide more fun, options, or variety to his and others' decks, I feel he isn't the most imperative to boost through Academy release.

In regards to the elementalist, a bold move to introduce a new type of mage to the academy scene before having it in arena(you know Arena the main version of mage wars, the big brother to Academy). The excitement of the unknown gets me hyped and thinking of what could be. Will we see FROST SPELLS? Will there be more Elemental creatures, lesser versions of Arena ones? Will he work as a solo mage sweeping(literally sweeping, as in hit 2 targets or more) through enemies with some wild attack spells? Will we, and I think we will, see some crazy elemental based incantations and enchantment cards which incorporate the elements. Example would be Air school incantation, healing wind; target a creature and heal it a low dice amount like 2 roll, then if possible move to another zone and heal another creature 2 dice roll, then continuing in that direction do the same thing until u hit a wall/ run out of zones. So this would be like mending wave with the directional element( pun not intended) of tsunami. Or like an enchantment card that covers u in rocks so u gain armor but u gain the slow effect as well unless u are uncontainable or unmoveable and it only targets corporeal creatures.

These are the things this mage could do, anything is possible. People kinda trash talked arcanewonders for slacking on Mage Wars, but what if they were just silent because they knew they were going to bring the thunder.

I’m kinda hyped about the elementalist though I don’t play academy.

But for the love of god! Give us an arena version of him.

There's a potion that removes condition markers. 3 charges. Also Nature has an attack spell with Doublestrike at range 0-1.

There's conjurations in Academy now. And a new tree creature who has a quick attack, isnt slow, and is very reasonably priced. Oh and you can summon bee swarms that do critical damage.
