Blizzard recently announced the arrival of a powerful new mage to the Heroes of Warcraft family in Hearthstone. He's known as the Archmage Khadgar, who is a famous hero to the denizens of Azeroth! This powerful being once started out as Medich's apprentice and has now risen to become one of the most renowned Mages in history.

Whether battling against shadowy councils, or holding the line against unwelcome iron incursions, Khadgar is always a staunch guardian of Azeroth and the entities that call it home.

But there's another power that this great mage possesses; one that could see the animals of our world enjoy increased protection.

Buying Khadgar In Hearthstone Will Support The World Wide Fund for Nature

Let's protect the planet!

In an update on their website, Blizzard revealed that this new hero in Hearthstone was very different from the ones that came before him. Blizzard Entertainment, Apple, and WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) have come together in order to protect life on our beautiful planet.

From now until April 24, Apple customers who can run Hearthstone on their devices will be able to purchase the Khadgar hero from the in-game Hearthstone shop for $4.99 USD ($7.99 AUD). But this is not just a purchase that grants you a mage of untold power, you'll also be doing your part to protect the animals of our planet.

WWF will receive 100% of the proceeds from the purchase of Khadgar. Aid them in their heroic quest to protect the natural world.

How I wish DLC was used like this more often. Not only will you actually be receiving a great new hero for Hearthstone, you can rest assured that your money will be supporting the endangered wildlife and habitats of the world. Just look at that panda!

Alternate heroes replace your existing class hero, and allow you to play Hearthstone as one Azeroth’s legendary characters. When you add Khadgar to your card collection in Hearthstone, be sure to share your support for WWF by using the hastag ! You'll be happy you did.

Will you be buying Khadgar & Supporting The Animals Of Our Planet?
