  • Fixed: Destroying Nozdormu will immediately cancel his effect, restoring time to the round.
  • After the release of TGT, some players built decks to combine Nozdormu with Joust cards to exploit the length of the jousting animation to force their opponent to skip their turns, hence winning the game.[1] This was eventually hotfixed.[2]
  • Nozdormu is able to be used to skip an opponent's entire turn.[3]
  • If Nozdormu is being placed on the board via Put into battlefield effects such as  Y'Shaarj, Rage Unbound, its "Sandstorm" visual effect will not get activated. Recruiting Nozdormu by  Dragonhatcher will trigger the "Sandstorm" visual effect.
  • At some point during the Year of the Raven some transformation effects such as  Polymorph or  Hex were not removing the "Sandstorm" visual effect, but this has been fixed with the release of Rise of Shadows or some unspecified earlier revision.
  • Solo Adventures do not normally feature a turn timer; however, Nozdormu's effect is able to introduce a turn timer.
    • For example, in Practice mode, Nozdormu introduces a refreshed turn timer of 40 seconds when played, 30 seconds for turns after a turn in which the player presses the "End Turn" button, and 20 seconds for turns after a turn in which the player does not press the "End Turn" button.[4]
    • Nozdormu also introduces a longer turn timer when played in some adventures. For example, in the One Night in Karazhan Class Challenges, Nozdormu introduces a 100 second turn timer when played, and for turns after a turn in which the player does not press the "End Turn" button, the turn timer is 70 seconds.[5]

Nozdormu the Timeless One is the Aspect of Time one of the five Dragon Aspects and leader of the bronze dragonflight, the "time police" of the Warcraft universe who ensure that time flows its proper direction.

Nozdormu the Timeless One is one of the five Great Aspects empowered by the titans to watch over Azeroth. He fought against the demons during the War of the Ancients. Following this intervention, he retreated into seclusion, immersing himself in his duties. He emerges only infrequently, when events require his direct presence. He intervened in the defeat of  Deathwing at the hands of Krasus and his allies, one of the few times he has been seen in the skies of Azeroth.

Nozdormu reappears in Descent of Dragons as  Nozdormu the Timeless.
