Pirate

From Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Pirates are a type of minion. The majority of pirate cards fit a weapon theme and are most useful in decks that feature a lot of weapons.

Strategy[edit]

Rogues and warriors are ideal for a Pirate deck. This is because of the rogue's hero power, and the warrior's wide array of weapon cards that can be built into a deck. Paladins and to a lesser extent hunters and shamans can also make use of Pirates' abilities, depending on the card and the number of weapons in their deck. However, for maximum effect Pirates are best used in combination with a weapon-heavy class.

Notes[edit]

Collecting one of each expert pirate card is the objective of the unique quest "Arrrrrr!!!", which rewards the player with 2 x Captain's Parrot.[1] Collecting the golden version of each expert pirate will similarly reward the player with 2 x golden Captain's Parrot.

All Pirate (and Pirate-related) minions are neutral, except for One-eyed Cheat, who is available only to rogues.
