Destroy a Demon. Restore #5 Health to your hero.

This is the reason that Demons never really become friends with Warlocks.

See this card on Hearthpwn

Sacrificial Pact is a warlock spell card, from the Basic set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Sacrificial Pact x 2 are a reward for raising a warlock to level 8.

Golden Sacrificial Pact is a reward for raising a warlock to levels 15 and 20.

Sacrificial Pact is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This spell has two steps:
    • First, it sets the target minion pending destroy;
    • Then, it heals your hero, queuing and resolving triggers.[1]
  • Sacrificial Pact will no longer be offered for selection in Arena, since the 15th of September 2016.[2] However, it is still obtainable in Arena matches through random effects, such as Spellslinger.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Sacrificial Pact can be used on either your own or your opponent's Demon, making it particularly useful against other warlocks. Additionally, Sacrificial Pact can also be used on Lord Jaraxxus after he has become the opposing hero to result in an instant win. It is also an excellent counter to Mirror Entity; no matter how strong the Demon you're about to play is, you can simply destroy the copy of your Demon with the Sacrificial Pact.

It should be noted that this ability may be used on the neutral Demons: Illidan Stormrage, Imp Master's Imps and Prince Malchezaar.

Can be combined with Power Overwhelming to allow a Demon to deal massive combat damage before then healing the warlock, with no additional sacrifice.

Can also be combined with Dreadsteed to restore 5 Health without any sacrifice.

Lore[edit | edit source]

In World of Warcraft, Sacrificial Pact is a talented ability that allows warlocks to sacrifice a portion of their minion's health to create a temporary shield for themselves.

The unusual relationship between warlocks and their summoned demons is well-documented.

From Wowpedia:

Warlocks command the obedience of mighty demons, summoning and dismissing them at will, using them as they see fit and sacrificing them the moment it serves the warlock's interests. Even the mighty infernals bow before the will of the warlock.
