[edit] Strategy

Leeroy Jenkins is best used in a deck that can buff his attack power the turn he comes out. This typically means he is a late game play, but has uses in the mid game. Paladins can make great use of Leeroy with the Blessed Champion card.

Leeroy can also be used in a rogue deck in combination with Shadowstep and/or other cards. Playing Leeroy and attacking, Shadowstep on Leeroy, play Leeroy again, but for only 2 mana, and attacking. Then repeat again once or using Fan of Knives to clear away the four Whelps. If using Shadowstep a second time, use some combination of two Sinister Strikes and/or two Cold Bloods to deal a total of 24-26 damage, from just that combo and turn. Use of Preparations can add even more damage and opening up many more possibilities in spell choice on the same turn. Alternatively, leave the six Whelps on the enemy's battlefield to clog it and use Conceal to minimize their effect (with much caution against a shaman or a druid).

Hunters can use Leeroy in combination with Unleash the Hounds to summon additional Hounds, due to the Whelps summoned by Leeroy for the opponent.

[edit] Lore

From Wowpedia:

Leeroy Jenkins (aka Ben Schulz) is one of the most famous players/characters in World of Warcraft. The video has become a World of Warcraft phenomenon. After much debate and controversy, <PALS FOR LIFE>, Leeroy's guild, have admitted that this was a staged promotional video. They maintain, however, that it is essentially a faithful re-enactment of a true event.

The video depicts an Upper Blackrock Spire raid group carefully planning out a method for clearing out the Rookery. The scene is the epitome of highly structured raid play, where order of battle, combat tactics, and numbers crunching are par for the course. Among the group is Leeroy jenkins, sitting AFK and saying nothing while the rest of his extremely cautious group discuss tactics on how to safely defeat a boss in Upper Blackrock Spire (to the point of calculating a 32.3333% (repeating, of course) chance of survival). After a full minute into planning, before his party is properly prepared, however, Leeroy suddenly returns to his computer saying, "All right, time's up, let's do this...", then screams his signature line, "LEEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOY JEEEEEEENKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINS!!!!" and he charges blindly — solo, no less — into the battlezone.

The other party members stand still for a moment confused, perhaps in shock, and then run after Leeroy with haste, yelling, "STICK TO THE PLAN! STICK TO THE PLAN!!" to complete their original goal and to "rescue" the helpless crusader. Meanwhile, Leeroy has proceeded to aggro nearly every creature in the chamber, while the party is quickly overwhelmed and unable to coordinate. At this point, the party wipes (all members die) and discovers that their Soulstone buffs have been exhausted.

The movie concludes with the words "At least I have chicken", which has become a secondary catch-phrase. Schulz has said that KFC is the guild's favorite snack, and that while Leeroy was AFK, he had gone to reheat some leftover chicken in the microwave. Schulz states that he was kicked out of the guild for about five minutes until they let him back in after the incident. He also stated that they used a soulstone after the event to rez everyone.

Leeroy's actions have caused the larger World of Warcraft community to use his name to represent any action that could be seen as potentially dangerous and/or incredibly stupid. The Leeroy movie is generally suggested to be a must-see for any and all WoW players. It has become a popular term for a person who causes a bad pull that causes a group wipe. In 2005, Leeroy was also mentioned in a question about World of Warcraft on the TV game show Jeopardy!.
