With the arrival of Whispers of the Old Gods and game formats, the wiki has switched over to Standard format.
The preferred format for new and advanced players alike, most card lists will from now on only show cards valid in Standard format, making it easier for readers to find the information they're looking for.
For those interested in Wild format, Wild listings can now be found on subpages, such as Deathrattle/Wild format, linked just above main card listings, and Wild strategy and tips are still featured in our articles.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Voidwalker x 2 are automatically included in all players' collections.

Golden Voidwalker is a reward for raising a warlock to levels 36 and 38.

Voidwalker is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Voidwalker is a reasonably tough Taunt minion with a very low cost making it a great front line tank for a warlock deck. Not only is it one of the few Demons with no back-firing Battlecry, it is arguably better than Shieldbearer and directly superior to Goldshire Footman while retaining the same low cost. It has 1 more health than the Footman, and can synergize with Demon-play.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Lore[edit | edit source]

The ability to summon a Voidwalker is a warlock skill first seen in World of Warcraft, where they are useful tanking minions, used by warlocks to take damage in their stead. Voidwalkers themselves, however, are seen earlier in Warcraft lore in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne.

From Wowpedia:

Voidwalkers first appeared in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne as a type of Outland creep. Lorewise, they served little purpose other than being random monsters fought by Kael'thas Sunstrider, Lady Vashj and Illidan Stormrage when Illidan fled to Outland in order to hide from Kil'jaeden (after failing his task of destroying the Frozen Throne - he later failed it once more) and Kael'thas, accompanied by Lady Vashj, later went to look for him. The voidwalkers they encountered were however guarding Magtheridon's Dimensional Gateways and his Black Citadel, which implies that they were either his slaves or soldiers. It was also possible to hire voidwalkers (and other Outland-creeps - even eredar) from a Mercenary Camp they found. Voidwalkers are even more trivial in custom maps where they only guard random treasures and/or points of interest such as gold mines. Some custom maps also have the same type of Mercenary Camp where voidwalkers can be hired. Eredar Diabolists are able to summon voidwalkers.
