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. While Pirates are not strongly associated with any particular class, two Pirates are exclusive to the rogue class - One-eyed Cheat and Buccaneer.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

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 | edit source]

Collecting one of each Classic 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 Classic 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 and Buccaneer, which are available only to rogues.
