khadgar hearthstoneAre you looking for a new hero to play with in Hearthstone? If you are, you might be interested to learn that Blizzard has introduced the Archmage Khadgar to the game where he has been described as, “The Archmage Khadgar is a well-known hero to the denizens of Azeroth! Once Medivh’s apprentice, now he’s renowned as one of the most powerful Mages in history!”

However if you want to get your hands on the hero, there is a catch and that catch is that Khadgar will only be available for purchase on iOS. According to Blizzard’s announcement, “Blizzard Entertainment, Apple, and WWF are working together to protect life on our planet. From now until April 24, Apple customers* will be able to purchase the Khadgar hero from the in-game Hearthstone shop for $4.99 USD ($7.99 AUD).”


We should also note that neither Blizzard nor Apple will be receiving money from the purchase as 100% of the proceeds will be going towards the WWF. This is part of Apple’s Apps for Earth campaign which is currently going on at the moment. The good news is that once you have bought the hero, you will be able to play him on any device since he would be added to your Hearthstone account.

If you do not own an iOS device, we suppose you could always borrow one from a friend or family member, log into your own Hearthstone account to make the purchase and you’ll be good to go. If you do own an iOS device but don’t have Hearthstone, you’ll be able to download the app from the iTunes App Store.
