Enrage is a minion ability where the stated effect becomes active only when the minion is damaged. If the minion is healed back to full Health, the Enrage effect will be cancelled.

Notes[edit | edit source]

A video explaining Enrage in Hearthstone made by the Curse Gamepedia YouTube Channel.

Enrage effects become active whenever the minion's current Health is below their current maximum Health. Restoring a minion to full Health will cancel the Enrage. This can occur through healing the minion, or by reducing their maximum Health so that they are no longer considered 'damaged'.

Enrage effects may be active or inactive. While active, their effects are constant, and will not be re-applied by further damaging the minion. De-activating an Enrage effect will immediately cancel its effects.

Enrage effects are sometimes confused with triggered effects which activate on damage, such as that of Gurubashi Berserker or Frothing Berserker. Unlike Enrage effects, these effects can be triggered repeatedly, and will not be removed by healing the minion.

Tips[edit | edit source]

There are many ways of triggering Enrage effects:

  • Making a minion with Enrage attack an opponent minion with low Attack is a good way to activate their Enrage. This triggers the Enrage effect while taking minimal damage.
  • Many damaging spells and effects can be cast on your own minions, such as Shiv or Cruel Taskmaster's battlecry.
  • Minions and heroes cannot attack their own allies so you can't force an Enrage through combat with your own forces.

Healing effects can sometimes be useful for de-enraging minions. For example priests can use Lesser Heal to reduce threat from enemy Enrage minions.
