Divine Shield

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

Divine Shield is an ability which causes a minion to ignore the next damage it receives. Upon receiving any damage the Divine Shield is removed, and that damage is ignored. The amount of damage taken is not important, and may occur in combat from either attacking or defending, or from a spell or other effect.

Notes[edit]

  • Minions with Divine Shield who engage in combat will still deal damage normally.
  • Divine Shield can also be removed through spells such as Silence and transforming abilities.
  • Divine Shield does not protect the minion from all sources of harm or attack, only from damaging abilities. Spells that do not specifically cause damage, such as Hunter's Mark, Equality and Assassinate, are therefore not prevented by Divine Shield.
  • Spells with both damage and an additional component, such as Cone of Cold, will have their damage prevented by Divine Shield (consuming the effect) but will still apply all non-damage effects.
  • Engaging in combat with minions with zero Attack will not remove a target's Shield, since no damage is taken.

Strategy[edit]

  • Since Divine Shield is removed by any source of damage, regardless of amount, when seeking to quickly destroy a shielded target, it is often wise to use a weak ability to remove the shield before targeting the minion with a more substantial attack (if required). Good sources for this include weak minions, low damage spells like Arcane Explosion, and the mage hero power Fireblast.
