Special Interactions

Flavor Text & Card Sounds

All of the One Night In Karazhan cards are live in our database! This now includes their flavor text and card sounds! Sadly, we won't be pushing the golden cards live just yet though.

Barnes - He used to play every part, until Moroes confiscated his Orb of Deception.
Medivh, the Guardian - If you think the party's great now, just wait 'til he invites the orcs over!
Moroes - Moroes runs an army of stewards, but still ends up inflating the balloons himself.
Prince Malchezaar - He was super excited to acquire Gorehowl at a garage sale! Then super disappointed to find out it was a foam reproduction.
The Curator - The Curator guards Azeroth’s deadliest creatures, but it’s secretly terrified of squirrels.
Arcane Giant - Claims to be drawn to Karazhan because of the ley lines. Actually, just loves Moroes’ cooking.
Avian Watcher - He mostly watches light romantic comedies.
Book Wyrm - His favorites are classic tragedies like "The Hobbit" and "Grendel".
Moat Lurker - He really enjoys lurking and gets a lot of job satisfaction out of it.
Protect the King! - Form ranks! Everyone into the King's Tuskarr Defense!
Moonglade Portal - Ain't no party like a Moonglade party ‘cause a Moonglade party got bears.
Ivory Knight - Do NOT call it a "horse".
Cat Trick - "I know some new tricks, a lot of good tricks. I will show them to you. Medivh will not mind at all if I do."
Ethereal Peddler - Yeah, sure. That Ragnaros "fell off the back of a truck".
Onyx Bishop - B4 is a nice place to visit, but he wouldn't want to live there.
Maelstrom Portal - They bill this as a popular resort attraction, but they try and get your money up front.
Babbling Book - His idol is the Green Hills of Stranglethorn, and he won't shut up about it.
Silverware Golem - From the secret research labs of the Swiss Army.
Fool's Bane - A fool and his bane are soon parted.
Spirit Claws - They'll be MUCH easier to use once they add the spiritthumb.
Firelands Portal - Come to beautiful Firelands! Where it's "Way nicer than the Abyssal Maw!"
Ironforge Portal - Come to beautiful Ironforge! Where irons are forged and the forges are iron!
Kara Kazham! - This is what happens when you tell Khadgar to set the table.
Purify - Even better than a hot shower with vigorous scrubbing!
Silvermoon Portal - What's Millhouse Manastorm doing in Silvermoon?
Arcane Anomaly - He used to get work as a Spacial Anomaly, but he got tired of having his polarity reversed.
Arcanosmith - He’s really just a Blacksmith, but he thought the fancy title would bring in more business.
Cloaked Huntress - She's practically GIVING your secrets away!
Deadly Fork - For a proper setting, place the deadly fork after the salad fork, but before the dinner fork.
Enchanted Raven - Once upon a midnight restive, Medivh pondered, feeling festive!
Kindly Grandmother - "Goodness! What… abundant drool you have."
Malchezaar's Imp - Malchezaar used to have an imp named Dobby working for him, but there was a tragic accident.
Medivh's Valet - "Magus Medivh sir, I've brought the flaming balloons, as you requested."
Menagerie Magician - Just between us, if things get tight the Menagerie Magician position will probably be the first to go.
Menagerie Warden - Please? Can I keep him? I promise to clean his cage every day.
Netherspite Historian - She can tell you all about the history of people not STANDING IN THE GREEN BEAM!
Nightbane Templar - Originally joined to be Arcanagos’ Templar, but has to admit that ordering pizza has become waaaay easier.
Pantry Spider - You have to admit, they make a cute couple.
Pompous Thespian - Alas poor Annoy-o-Tron! A fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy!
Priest of the Feast - Now that's a world champion cheesecake!
Runic Egg - Oh man! Runic omelettes are the best!
Swashburglar - Was almost named "Swashb-AAAARRHHH-gler"
Violet Illusionist - She’s much more cheerful after losing the ‘n’ in her name.
Wicked Witchdoctor - You can easily defeat her by either dealing 4 damage, or dropping a house on her.
Zoobot - The Murloc is taking the picture.
