WoW Trading Card Game (TCG) Loot Cards & Archives Booster PacksThe WoW Trading Card Game has always been an interesting branch of the World of Warcraft product line. The booster packs for the WoW Trading Card Game have a chance at containing the more rare loot cards. These loot cards contain a code for an item that can be used in the World of Warcraft game. These loot cards are fun additions to the game that can include new mounts, new companion pets, and new vanity items, such as tabards or toys. Many of the rare loot cards are able to be sold for hefty amounts on ebay and other sites as the loot cards are hard to find and without a ton of luck, would require purchasing a bunch of WoW TCG booster packs for a chance at a rare loot card.
Archives Booster Pack Box SaleRecently, I spoke with Elvine on Twitter regarding the Archives expansion pack booster boxes on sale from Amazon. We discussed the loot card distribution and the odds of making a profit by buying the sale priced boxes and selling the loot cards. Elvine had already order a set of 4 of the WoW TCG Archives expansion booster boxes. He granted me permission to use his experience and results in a blog post, as I found the notion rather interesting and thought that you might too.
The WoW TCG Archives ExpansionThe Archives expansion for the WoW Trading Card Game is a special release that also includes some of the popular loot cards. By design, the Archives expansion is a 190 card set of reprinted cards from the "best of" the first 3 years of the WoW TCG, but done in all foil. The set contains some valuable and popular loot cards. Each pack has a chance to contain loot cards, but the really lucky may get one of the 4 rare mounts:
- Spectral Tiger
- X-51 Nether Rocket
- Riding Turtle
- Big Battle Bear
- Robotic Homing Chicken (Rocket Chicken Companion Pet)
- Banana Charm (Monkey Companion Pet)
- Fishing Chair
- Paper Flying Machine
- Tabard Of The Flame
- Papa Hummell's Pet Biscuit
- Sandbox Tiger
- Commons - 20 to 21 per case, at least 1 per expansion box.
- Uncommons - 2 per case, or 1 in 6 expansion boxes, some rare cases have 1, where other rare cases have 3.
- Rares - 1 per case, or 1 in 12 expansion boxes, some rare cases have none, while other rare cases have 2.
- Booster Pack - 10 card pack, contains 9 cards and 1 crafting or loot card.
- Booster Box - 24 booster packs are in 1 booster box.
- Case - 12 booster boxes make up 1 full sealed case.
Elvine's Loot Card Results From 4 Archives TCG Booster BoxesElvine purchased 4 sealed booster boxes, which is a total of 96 booster packs. The packs were opened live on Elvine's Twitch livestreaming channel. Here are the loot card results from the 96 packs.
- Box #1
- 1 Tabard of the Flame (Landro Longshot)
- 2 Paper Airplane
- Box #2
- 2 Pet Biscuits (Papa Hummel's Old Fashioned Pet Biscuits)
- 1 Riding Turtle (Saltwater Snapjaw)
- 1 Banana Charm - Monkey Pet (King Mukla)
- 4 Sandbox Tigers
- Box #3
- 1 Sandbox Tiger
- Box #4

Even Cheaper Archives Booster PacksIf you are still interested in trying your shot at the WoW TCG Loot card lottery, consider Amazon for single booster packs. Amazon currently has single Archives booster packs for only $1.25 each, which is cheaper than the sealed box sale price. You lose the benefit of having a sealed booster box, but as shown above, there is no guaranteed distribution from buying a sealed box or case. So next time you are on amazon and need a few more dollars to reach the minimum purchase total for free shipping, consider tossing in a few WoW TCG Archives booster packs. You may just get lucky and find yourself a super rare loot card mount.
