Strategy[edit | edit source]

For 3 mana this card may seem expensive, but with the right target it can be very useful. Windfury minions such as Thrallmar Farseer and Windfury Harpy work well for this purpose, allowing you to deal massive instant damage to the enemy hero - provided they don't have any Taunts on the board. Minions with high Attack and a low cost are very effective, such as a 0 mana Molten Giant.

Lore[edit | edit source]

"A charge is one of those things that always ends badly for someone."

Charge is an early ability learned by warriors in World of Warcraft. It allows the warrior to quickly dash to their target and root it while also gaining Rage to fuel further attacks.
