Elite Tauren Chieftain is a legendary neutral minion card.

How to get[edit]

Regular Elite Tauren Chieftain can be obtained through crafting:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Elite Tauren Chieftain 1600 400

Golden Elite Tauren Chieftain can only be obtained as a promotion from purchasing a ticket or virtual ticket to Blizzcon 2013. These tickets are no longer for sale, but players who have already purchased one can obtain a single copy of this minion by logging into the game.[1]

Golden Elite Tauren Chieftain is soulbound and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Strategy[edit]

Elite Tauren Chieftain grants each player one of three possible 'Power Chord' cards. All Power Chord cards are 4 mana spell cards.

I Am Murloc[edit]

This is a great card for any deck featuring minion buffs, especially murloc buffs, but is very weak against AoE. At least three 1/1 murlocs are guaranteed.

Power of the Horde[edit]

Summons a single minion for the player. Possible minions summoned include:

This is by far the most unpredictable option, with the potential to be one of the strongest or the weakest of the Power Chords.

Rogues Do It...[edit]

A reliable option, serving as combined damage and card draw. Good for removal, this card can also be useful for finishing the enemy hero.

Notes[edit]

Elite Tauren Chieftain is most notable for the outrageous and unprecedented visual and audio effects upon playing the card. Each of the Power Chord cards also feature unique sounds and animations.

Elite Tauren Chieftain is the second promotion card to be added to the game. Similar to the first promotion card, Gelbin Mekkatorque, this card brings a strong element of RNG to the game, adding an unpredictable and potentially game-changing element to the match. Its battlecry is also notable for providing an equal advantage to each player, rather than favouring the player who played it.

History[edit]

Elite Tauren Chieftain is a real-life band comprised of Blizzard employees, known for performing their own hard-rocking material with lyrics set in the Warcraft universe. Elite Tauren Chieftain often perform at Blizzcon and have released several singles. They also feature in-game in Shattrath City, at the Darkmoon Faire and in Blackrock Depths' Grim Guzzler. See Elite Tauren Chieftain on wowpedia for details.
