Arcane Cannon was a Tier 2 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Arcane Cannon was a support minion which could deal indirect damage throughout the Combat Phase similarly to Soul Juggler, but it couldn't reliably protect itself due to its inability to attack. As it triggered through attacks from friendly minions, it synergized with minions that can attack immediately like Scallywag's Sky Pirate, Yo-Ho-Ogre and Illidan Stormrage's Wingmen, or Windfury minions such as Zapp Slywick or Seabreaker Goliath.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If the board had nothing but Arcane Cannons or unbuffed Treasure Chests summoned by Nat Pagle, Extreme Angler, the Combat Phase would end in a tie to prevent a stalemate where none of the minions will be able to attack.
  • If it was placed in the left or right most position while playing as Illidan, Wingmen forced it to attack.
  • If pirates were the banned minion type, Arcane Cannon was also banned.
