Hearthstone: Nozdormu the Eternal, new Core Set Legendary minion revealed

The sands of time will be even more inescapable as brand-new Legendary minion, Nozdormu the Eternal, joins Hearthstone‘s Core Set.

Old school Hearthstone players might recognize the continuity of the new Nozdormu the Eternal card with the original Nozdormu from classic Hearthstone, a 9-mana, 8 Attack/8 Health neutral Legendary minion whose card effect read, “Players only have 15 seconds to take their turns.” Nozdormu the Eternal takes matters (hilariously) one step further by making each turn 15 seconds from the jump if both players have the card in their decks. Although Nozdormu the Eternal isn’t some game-changing card that will be an auto-include in the Core Set, it will facilitate some undeniably hilarious results — speed Hearthstone tournaments wherein all players are required to have this card in their deck, anyone?

Nozdormu the Eternal

  • Class: Neutral
  • Card type: Minion
  • Rarity: Legendary
  • Mana cost: 7
  • Attack: 8 HP: 8
  • Card text: Start of Game: If this is in BOTH players’ decks, turns are only 15 seconds long.

Nozdormu the Eternal marks the third version of Nozdormu in Hearthstone overall, succeeding the original Nozdormu from classic Hearthstone and Nozdormu the Timeless, a 4-mana cost, 8 Attack/8 Health minion from the Descent of Dragons expansion whose card ability was, “Battlecry: Set each player to 10 Mana Crystals.”

In World of Warcraft lore, Nozdormu is a member of the Bronze Dragonflight and one of the five Great Aspects of Azeroth. Nozdormu’s job is to ensure that the flow of time transpires normally and that important events which are fated to take place do in fact take place; he was bestowed this duty by Aman’Thul, the Highfather of the Pantheon of Titans, who shaped the universe in which World of Warcraft takes place. The following is a quote detailing what Aman’Thul said when charging the Bronze Dragonflight and Nozdormu with presiding over the passage of time.

“Unto you is charged the great task of keeping the purity of time. Know that there is only one true timeline, though there are those who would have it otherwise. You must protect it. Without the truth of time as it is meant to unfold, more will be lost than you can possibly imagine. The fabric of reality will unravel. It is a heavy task–the base of all tasks of this world, for nothing can transpire without time.” – Blessing of the Bronze Aspect by Aman’Thul

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
