 How to get
|Golden Explosive Shot||800||100|
This is a powerful card with a strong positional element. 5 damage is dealt to the target minion, while 2 damage is dealt to each of the adjacent ones. It therefore pays to choose the direct target of this spell with care, ensuring that damage is dealt in the best possible way.
When playing against a hunter, this strongly rewards placing your weaker minions between stronger minions. Doing so can increase minion survival and minimise damage taken if Explosive Shot is used.
