Reno first appeared as a legendary card and major supporting character in the League of Explorers adventure for Hearthstone. In Hearthstone lore, Reno is a world-renowned archaeologist, explorer, and treasure hunter... or so he says. His membership in the League of Explorers is currently on probation. Reno is quite the dashing adventurer, as he's sure to inform you, but sometimes he gets a little confused about the difference between treasure hunter and archeologist. While his fingers can be a little sticky, Reno's heart is in the right place. He's out to prove that he deserves his place in the League of Explorers. His flavor text reads: "Reno is a four-time winner of the 'Best Accessorized Explorer' award."
He accompanies the player through the Temple of Orsis, the first wing of the League of Explorers adventure. The first boss encounter, Zinaar, is caused by Reno not being able to resist the temptation of rubbing a magical lamp. Reno claims that he once infiltrated the ogres of Dire Maul in disguise and that he once snuck through the Lyceum of Blackrock Depths to acquire something. Reno hates snakes.
- An unused ID of Reno Jackson exists from patch 7.3.0, looking slightly differently than his Battle for Azeroth version.
- Patch 8.2.0 (2019-06-25): Added.
