- For the minion of the same name, see Khadgar (minion).
- The Archmage Khadgar is a well-known hero to the denizens of Azeroth! Once Medivh’s apprentice, now he’s renowned as one of the most powerful Mages in history! Whether battling against shadowy councils, or holding the line against unwelcome iron incursions, Khadgar is always a staunch guardian of Azeroth and the entities that call it home.
- Khadgar is perhaps the most accomplished of all living wizards and one of the most powerful magi in Azerothian history. He was an apprentice to the Guardian Medivh, until he helped defeat his possessed master. Though cursed with frailty and age, Khadgar nevertheless has been an exemplar for the Alliance, destroying the Dark Portal in the Second War, leading the Alliance Expedition to Draenor, and counterattacking against the Burning Legion and all who would threaten his world with annihilation.
- While a hero of the Alliance, Khadgar is willing to work with the Horde for the greater good of Azeroth. As a member of the Council of Six, Khadgar hopes to drive the politics out of the Kirin Tor, and has been known to clash with the more partisan members of the council.
- During the events of Warlords of Draenor, Khadgar leads the forces of the Alliance and the Horde to shut down the Dark Portal in Draenor, and later works with them to cripple the Iron Horde in various areas of the world. He also focuses heavily on combating Gul'dan and the Shadow Council.

Khadgar was released on April 14, 2016, in Patch 18.104.22.16866, as part of an iOS-only "Apps For Earth" promotion, with 100% of proceeds going to the World Wildlife Fund.
Due to coordination issues, the accompanying patch was released on iOS prior to other platforms, resulting in some problems for those trying to play with the hero. Because of the way the game handles players using different patch versions, those who had logged in with an updated client on iOS were then unable to log in on other platforms, due to the patch not yet being available except on iOS. In addition, players who had updated were unable to be matched against opponents who had not yet updated to the upcoming patch. This behaviour is normal for patch updates, but was notable in this case due to the patch being unavailable on most platforms, with a relatively long delay before full release.
The problem was resolved with the release of the patch on other platforms around 10 hours later.
Khadgar returned to the store in Patch 22.214.171.124174, available for purchase by all players from February 26th, 2020 until March 4th.
Purchasing Khadgar unlocks the following card back. This card back was also given to all players who had obtained Khadgar previously.
- Patch 126.96.36.199174 (2020-02-26): Once again available for purchase. Now has a special card back.
- Patch 188.8.131.5219 (2016-07-12): Khadgar's portrait now has a drop shadow.
- Patch 184.108.40.20674 (2016-04-24):
- Wow emote added. Sorry emote no longer available.
- No longer available for purchase.
- Patch 220.127.116.1166 (2016-04-14): Added.
- Khadgar Comes to the Tavern! (2016-04-14)
