Deal 4 damage to an enemy and 1 damage to all other enemies.
When a bear rears back and extends his arms, he's about to Swipe! ... or hug.
How to get
Swipe x 2 are a reward for raising a druid to level 8.
- Each point of Spell Damage will improve Swipe by causing it to deal one extra point to each target. For example, with 1 Spell Damage, Swipe will deal 5 damage to its target, and 2 damage to all other enemies.
- Swipe deals its primary damage first, and then its AoE damage.
It is also known for making druid extremely strong in the early game and a solid opponent against shamans (because of the fragile nature of the totems), priests (because of their weak early game) and murloc decks (because their health pool is very low).
Note that it affects all enemies, not just minions. This can make it useful for dealing a little extra damage to the enemy hero themselves, especially with some Spell Damage. It also provides you with the option of casting the spell on the enemy hero, which can be a desirable option for end-game nuking or when the spell's AoE damage is sufficient to destroy any minions.
- Tested by User:Taohinton, 2015-02-19. Opponent had a Frothing Berserker and 4 other minions on board. Used Swipe on one of the other minions; target minion received damage; Frothing Berserker activated; then all other minions received damage at once; then Frothing Berserker activated 4 times, once for each minion.
