Big Game Hunter TCG

In the World of Warcraft: Trading Card Game.


<name>, you are a hunter worthy of our company. From the battlefields of Lordaeron to the deepest jungle, I have rarely witnessed such prowess with weaponry as you have demonstrated.

You have killed the ferocious Sin'Dall, the elusive Bhag'thera and the treacherous Tethis. But the true prize is the head of King Bangalash. That white tiger is the reason I am here. I've had my sights on him for quite some time now. Kill King Bangalash and your hunting prowess is proven to be second to none.


I see you're back, old bloke. King Bangalash has caused me to come crawling back to camp many times. Hang in there.


Bloody well done! Right-o! Congratulations, <name>, for succeeding where others have failed.

I am honored to count you as a comrade of our great hunting party here. No one will ever doubt your expertise in hunting and tracking!

Cheers to you, I say! Cheers!


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:
