[edit] How to get

Innervate x 2 are automatically included in all players' collections.

Golden Innervate is a reward for raising a druid to levels 36 and 38.

Innervate is soulbound and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

[edit] Strategy

Innervate grants the player 2 extra mana crystals on the turn that it's used. This grants the druid the potential to use high cost cards several turns before the opponent can do the same. Summoning sturdy minions such as Chillwind Yeti or Druid of the Claw in the first turns will allow the player to seize board control, often trading for several of the opponent's cards and granting the druid a sizeable advantage.

However, a notable downside of Innervate is that it will be a lacking draw come late game.

While Innervate is unable to increase your mana crystal pool above 10, it can be used after spending crystals to effectively give you 12 crystals for that turn.

[edit] Lore

Innervate is a druid spell that causes the target to regenerate a substantial amount of mana over 10 seconds. This card shares the same artwork as the Innervate card from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game.

The card's trivia refers to a key mana regeneration mechanic from vanilla WoW. Originally the 31 point Restoration talent for druids, a significant portion of a Resto druid's value in raids was to use Innervate to restore mana to other casters. Clearly, this over-specialisation was not appreciated by all druids.
