Battlecry

From Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Battlecry is a minion ability where a particular effect activates when the minion is played directly from the hand.

Battlecries are indicated by a flash of light from under the minion when it is played.

Notes[edit]

  • Battlecries do not activate if the card is brought into play by another card. For example, Alarm-o-Bot, Faceless Manipulator and Mirror Entity all place minions onto the board, but any Battlecries will not be activated.
  • Battlecries generally occur once, when the card is brought into play. Unlike some other buffs, these effects do not therefore rely on the casting minion staying alive, and cannot be removed by destroying it. For example, destroying Stormwind Champion will remove its bonus effect from any affected minions, whereas Shattered Sun Cleric's battlecry, once granted, will not be removed by killing the Cleric. This means battlecry minions are generally some of the less valuable minions once they have been played, since much of their point value lies in their battlecry.
  • Order of play can be important. For example, if no other murlocs are in play, playing Coldlight Seer, followed by Bluegill Warrior, will waste the Seer's battlecry; while playing the Warrior first will allow it to benefit from the Seer's battlecry.
  • Battlecries take place each time the minion is summoned by the player. Cards such as Ancient Brewmaster, which return a minion to your hand, can be used to benefit from a minion's battlecry effect more than once.
  • If a Battlecry requires a specific target, that target must be selected immediately after playing the minion. Many Battlecries require a specific type of target, such as a friendly minion or Beast, and cannot be targeted at other targets.
  • An appropriate target must be selected, if possible. In some cases, this means granting an advantageous buff to an enemy minion, or inconveniencing a friendly minion. This can be circumvented by careful assessment and control of the minions on the board, but is otherwise unavoidable. If no valid target exists, the Battlecry will not take effect, although any visual-audio effects will still be triggered.
  • The casting minion is not a viable target for their own Battlecry.
  • By cancelling the Battlecry, the player may actually choose to reverse the summoning, something which is not normally possible when summoning minions. If no suitable target is available, the Battlecry simply will not occur, and it will not be possible to un-summon the minion.
  • Battlecries will take place before any triggered secrets or triggered effects.[1]

Strategy[edit]

  • It is a common strategy for players to use return effects (effects that return a minion to its owner's hand) on their own battlecry minions in order to benefit from the effect again. The minions Ancient Brewmaster, Youthful Brewmaster and Kidnapper, as well as spells such as Shadowstep and Dream, and hostile actions such as Sap, can all be used for this purpose. This type of play is most effective when combined with minions with powerful battlecries.
