Spell

From Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Wiki
(Redirected from Spell cards)
Jump to: navigation, search
Fireball, a simple mage spell. It costs 4 mana, dealing 6 damage to a chosen target.

Spell cards are cards that can be played to trigger a one time effect or ability, described in the card's text. Casting a spell consumes the card, producing an immediate effect, although spells with the Secret ability are delayed until activated by specific events. Spell cards do not have Attack or Health attributes, only a mana cost, shown in the top left corner.

Spell cards are the second most common type of card. In contrast to minions, spells provide a range of functions, ranging from simple damage-dealing and removal of minions, to providing useful enchantments, drawing cards, summoning minions and restoring Health.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In Hearthstone the term spell is not limited to describing magical effects, but is roughly equivalent to the term ability from games like World of Warcraft, including magical abilities, traditional spell-casting, and physical abilities such as Cleave, Eviscerate and Slam. Spell cards generally represent all actions taken directly by a hero other than attacking and using Hero Powers.
  • The damage dealt by damaging spells can be increased by Spell Damage.
