As the name suggests, this set is set after the reopening of the dark portal. As such, many new Draenei heroes and allies are found amongst the Alliance, and new Blood elf heroes and allies are found amongst the Horde. Quests and items from Outland are also first featured in this set. However, there is no strict focus on the Burning Crusade-era, and the vast majority of allies, quests and items are still from Azeroth.
This set introduced some of the racial abilities from WoW to the card game.
This set introduced a single race-exclusive rare ally for each of the ten main races. All nine classes are represented amongst the allies, with an extra warrior.
Amongst the horde allies are three rogues that are named after bad behavior found in some WoW Players.
This set introduced a single race-exclusive quest for each of the ten main races. All quests are classified as rare, except Lazy Peons, which is common.
This set introduced a single race-favoring common quest for each of the ten main races. Where most races would have to choose between two card effects, the favored race uses both.
