Old Murk-Eye is a legendary reward murloc minion card.


[edit] How to get

Regular Old Murk-Eye is granted as a quest reward once the player has collected all other murloc cards in the game.

Golden Old Murk-Eye is awarded upon collecting all other murloc cards in their respective golden editions.

Old Murk-Eye is soulbound and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

[edit] Notes

Old Murk-Eye is the cheapest legendary card in the game, because you only need 700 dust to craft one of each other non-basic murlocs, earning the Old Murk-Eye card, compared to the 1600 dust required to directly craft any other legendary.

[edit] Strategy

A 4 mana 2/4 minion, Old Murk-Eye provides murloc-themed aggro decks a late-game finisher (late by this deck's standards) through utilizing its charge ability. This card is best played as a game-finishing attack that your opponent was not preparing for. Aside from Bluegill Warrior, this is the only powerful murloc card with charge.

[edit] Synergy

These cards can be used to buff other minions of the same subtype, or gain buffs from murlocs on the field:

[edit] Background

Old Murk-Eye is a murloc leader who terrorises the coast of Westfall. He coerced the weaker minded murlocs to raid the Westfall Lighthouse with him, claiming the area for the murlocs.

From Wowpedia:

Old Murk-Eye is a level 20 named murloc that patrols the shore of Westfall, near the old Westfall Lighthouse. Captain Grayson wants Murk-Eye killed. Murk-Eye is slightly stronger than his murloc lackeys around him.

[edit] Trivia

The card art for Murloc Scout/Murloc (minion), Murloc Raider and Old Murk-Eye originate from the same picture.
