Existing Warcraft Characters in Warcraft Rumble
Warcraft Rumble is going to feature a whole bunch of faces you'll be familiar with if you've played other Warcraft games. However, you do not need to be familiar in order to play, or appreciate, the game. When you play, you'll be able to play the game as the Alliance, the Horde, the Beasts, the Blackrock, or the Undead. Each of these factions has different playable characters.
The Alliance is defensive, focusing on defense, healing, stealth tactics, and general spellcasting. You'll see iconic champions such as Tirion Fordring, Maiev Shadowsong, and Jaina Proudmoore dedicating themselves to the cause.
The Horde is controlling, focusing on earning gold, deploying lots of troops, and trying to keep enemies controlled through various effects such as stuns. You'll see iconic champions such as Grommash Hellscream, Sneed, and Cairne Bloodhoof.
The Beasts are quick, focusing on taking down enemy defenses, buffing your allies, and moving quickly to catch up to enemies. You'll see well-known leaders such as Charlga Razorflank and Hogger.
The Blackrock specialize in controlling the air, focusing on heavy-hitting flying troops and fire magic to burn your enemies with. You'll see well-known leaders such as Rend Blackhand and General Drakkisath.
The Undead aim to never die, focusing on using dark magic and summoning endless armies of the dead to overwhelm enemies. You'll see well-known leaders such as Bloodmage Thalnos and Baron Rivendare.
Each faction will have their own set of "minis" that you will use. The Alliance, for example, may have gryphons that you can use, the Horde may have goblins, and the Undead may have zombies or skeletons. It is not currently known if you'll be able to mix-and-match champions and minis from different factions, but there will be plenty of minis for each faction to use.
