Zombie Chow is a common Naxxramas minion card.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Regular Zombie Chow is obtained by defeating Gluth in Curse of Naxxramas's Construct Quarter. Regular Zombie Chow is soulbound and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Once the regular version has been obtained, the golden version can be crafted:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Golden Zombie Chow 400 50

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If a low-health hero attacks a Zombie Chow, simultaneously dealing fatal damage to both characters, the Zombie Chow's Deathrattle healing effect will be observed to trigger, but the player will still be destroyed, losing them the game.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card's Deathrattle is an obvious tradeoff for its otherwise low cost. However, in the right circumstances this can be offset, such as by silencing the minion, or by using it at the start of the game to trade for an enemy minion before the opponent has been damaged.

The most potent combination of all, however, is Auchenai Soulpriest. With this card in play, Zombie Chow's Deathrattle will instead deal 5 damage to the enemy, effectively turning it into a better version of Leper Gnome.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Zombies are a variant of the undead. They are reanimated corpses who have not yet completed the transition into the "true" undeath form of ghouls.
