Pyroblast is an epic mage spell card.

How to get[edit]

Pyroblast can be obtained through expert card packs, through crafting, or as an arena reward.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Pyroblast 400 100
Golden Pyroblast 1600 400

Strategy[edit]

As a 10 mana, 10 damage spell, Pyroblast can be used to great effect for finishing off your opponent. The threat of a surprise Pyroblast forces your opponent to always stay above 10 health. In combination with some spell damage minions, you can deal even more damage.

The card usage is only valuable in the very late game due to its high mana cost, allowing for combos to surprise your opponent and turn the tide of a battle.

Background[edit]

Pyroblast is a fire mage spell from World of Warcraft. It is the most powerful damage spell available to fire mages, but suffers from a very long cast time. However, achieving a string of critical hits will grant the mage a free, instant Pyroblast cast, allowing them to use this powerful spell in the heat of battle.

Trivia[edit]

This card is known as the "dream destroyer" by some in the community, referring to its notoriety for ending the runs of famous streamers (such as Kripparrian and Trump) when they are close to achieving 12 wins in the Arena.
