Gods Unchained prepares to release their latest set, known as Band of the Wolf. Available only for four weeks, and limited in the number of packs available, Band of the Wolf introduces thirty-eight new cads to the game as well as a new ability and a ‘crafting’ system.
The next card set for Gods Unchained arrives at the end of March. Band of the Wolf brings thirty-eight new cards to this fantasy TCG. It also adds a crafting system, and a new card ability called Ally.
Unfortunately, we haven’t gotten to see any details on the cards, or the new ability yet. But, we do have quite a bit of info about the sale and other, related rewards!
Band of the Wolf Sale Info
Band of the Wolf packs go on sale starting on March 30th (4pm PT) and will be available until April 27th (also 4pm PST) or until the packs run out. Whichever comes first.
The Band of the Wolf sale offers four different pack types, ranging in price from $2 for a two card ‘Crafting Pack’, up to $210 for a ‘Super Shiny Pack’, which contains five cards, three of which are guaranteed to be Epic or Legendary. Early shoppers receive a discount on packs during this sale. The discount starts at 10%, and scales down until $600k worth packs have been sold, at which point everyone has to pay retail price.
Band of the Wolf is a limited edition set, with a total of 223,500 packs for sale (though only 500 Super Shiny packs will be available), and another 125,100 packs reserved for distribution during the Weekend Ranked events and other giveaways and promotions. Any unsold packs at the end of the sale will be retained by the GU team for future promotions.
Band of the Wolf Crafting
Band of the Wolf introduces a new ‘crafting system’, that really seems needlessly complex. This system encourages players to use the Forge to combine cards to a higher Shine level. Personally, I hate the Gods Unchained Forge interface as it requires a carpal tunnel-inducing number of clicks (note: apparently GU has reduced the number of clicks it takes for forging since I last tried, but it’s still somewhat of a tedious process). But for those willing to push through the pain, crafting a Diamond level Common or a Gold Rare, Band of the Wolf card, will earn a Meteorite level Epic card. Forging a Shadow Epic card results in a reward of a Meteorite Legendary.
Of course, players have the option of skipping all of this work and just purchasing more expensive packs that come with guaranteed Epic cards. However, this crafting system is the ONLY way for players to acquire the six, domain-specific Legendary cards. And if you want to get a Shiny version of those legendaries, you will need to craft multiple copies. Good times!

More rewards from Band of the Wolf
And like their last couple of sales, this one includes Trinket rewards. Those who collect the two Neutral Legendary cards from this set, Hortuk, Fallen Commander and Eiko, Undaunted Duellist, will receive a Siege of Raneko Board. In addition, if all the players combined play at 250k matches with at least one Band of the Wolf card in their deck, then all participants will receive a War Banner Trinket.
The rewards for the Weekend Ranked events will also be bolstered with Band of the Wolf packs. Anyone who earns a Rare Mortal Judgement pack during the Ranked Weekend during the sale will also receive three Crafting packs. Those who win Epic MJ packs receive five Crafting packs, and Legendary winners receive 10 Crafting packs plus two Booster packs! Gods Unchained will also hand out Crafting packs to anyone who plays a match on launch day, and additional bonus packs to random players who use their crafting system during the sale.
What is Gods Unchained?
Gods Unchained is a free-to-play, collectible card game. Built on the Ethereum blockchain, Gods Unchained uses the Immutable X layer-2 solution for gas-free trading. Players retain full ownership over their cards. Players can earn digital ‘Core’ cards by playing the game. When a player has two identical Core cards, they can mint these into one blockchain-based card. That card is then tradeable on the markets.
Gods Unchained offers several play and earn opportunities. Players gain cards by being active players, win packs while competing in the weekend tournaments, and earn GODS tokens by playing daily.
With several expansions its belt, Gods Unchained has a wide variety of cards for different playstyles. Gods Unchained currently sells packs for Mortal Judgment. Players can buy and open packs from the official site. Secondary sales are available on the Immutable X Marketplace and Token Trove.
