The pace of Untamed pack sales is increasing and we're coming up on the second to last airdrop of the set! After this airdrop there will be one more Untamed airdrop when the next 100k packs are sold and then that's it...there will be no airdrop after the last 100k packs of the edition sell out.
For the 13th Untamed airdrop card, we introduce a gargantuan, super-creepy, Epic Death Splinter Monster from the down in the depths of the ocean - The Gorlodon!
Even though the card is being revealed now, it won’t be “unlocked” and available in the game until after the remaining ~4,500 packs are sold. The Gorlodon will be the 16th Epic card to be available in Untamed edition booster packs, so the chances of receiving the card in the airdrop (as well as in booster packs going forward, without the use of potions) will be approximately 1.25% or 1 in every 80 packs on average, with an average of 1 in 50 of them (or 2%) being Gold Foil.
Additionally, players will be GUARANTEED to receive at least one "The Gorlodon" card for every 80 Untamed edition booster packs they have purchased.
Show Me the Stats!
The Gorlodon is a massive second-position tank card with its long limbs giving it the Reach ability, allowing it to use its Melee attack from the second position on the battlefield. Despite having only 1 Speed, at level 3 it gets the True Strike ability, meaning its Melee attacks will always hit their target, and at level 5 it starts to get Enraged when damaged, making its Melee attack even stronger!
Get In On the Airdrop!
At the time of writing there are just over 4,500 Untamed booster packs available for purchase that will be eligible for The Gorlodon airdrop. Of course, all Untamed booster packs purchased to date - either through the site or through the crowdfunding campaign - are also eligible, and after the airdrop the card will be available to be found in all packs opened going forward.
These packs will also be eligible for the final remaining new Untamed card airdrop that will happen after another set of 100,000 packs are sold.

The Gorlodon - Lore
Among the deep water horrors of the Splinterlands, there is one so frightening that even the bravest pirates dare not mention its name for fear of being cursed. This creature appears to have been loosed upon the Splinterlands from the most treacherous waters of Praetoria at the same time as the Wizard’s Veil was lifted, as if it was held prisoner by the Council’s magic then suddenly released in an unforeseen consequence.
Fortunately, the Gorlodon is so large that it cannot approach land masses in close proximity. Unfortunately the giant is highly prone to fits of rage, which it unleashes against any ships that come near its waters by ripping them to splinters. The Gorlodon has not wandered south, as it is presumed that it could never squeeze through the waters of the Burning Strait which separates the Burning Lands from Mortis. It has found a comfortable home in the Splinter Sea south of Praetoria, sometimes crossing west into the Primordic waters where it can torment the larger sea monsters that roam there.
Even though the Gorlodon has destroyed several Dark Eternal ships out of Galzur (including Yir Herigoth, the largest missionary vessel in the fleet), the terrifying sea giant has won the affection of the Dark Lord of Mortis, who has adopted the Gorlodon as a sort of guardian of the Death Splinter. The Lord of Darkness even sacrificed over a hundred scouts in an attempt to capture the Gorlodon’s likeness for submission to the great Moxian tournaments. A scaled down essence of the beast now represents the Death Splinter and terrifies massive Mount Mox audiences on a daily basis.
The Gorlodon was created as a collaboration with the popular WAX-based trading card collection by UltraRare, “The Horrors.” Learn more at ultrarare.uk.
