Battlecry: Give +1/+1 to your minions with Divine Shield.
As far as blades go, this one is pretty great in the motivation department.

Rallying Blade can be obtained through Whispers of the Old Gods card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Golden Rallying Blade can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of each Ranked season.

Strategy[edit | edit source]
It can be used similar to Fiery War Axe, but if you have minions with Divine Shield on board it'll provide a massive tempo swing in your favour and open up a lot of options in terms of trading. Examples include having a Steward of Darkshire on the board when you use Stand Against Darkness, you'll buff up your 5 recruits to 2/2 each, forcing an enemy to burn a board removal on tokens. It can also be a great turn 3 play if you have Argent Squires on the board or minions buffed by Argent Protector.
Lore[edit | edit source]
This card's 'rallying' effect is connected to the Divine Shield ability, and may depict imparting Holy strength to those already illuminated by the grace of the Light.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The art for this card appears to depict Shalamayne, the legendary weapon of Varian Wrynn. This could be an intentional reference to the king's role in rallying his forces, or simply be a reuse of previous art. Shalamayne has no known connection with paladins or Rallying Blade's effect, making a direct connection highly unlikely.
