We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Destroy an enemy minion.
If you don't want to be assassinated, move to the Barrens and change your name. Good luck!
How to get[edit | edit source]
Two copies of Assassinate are automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the rogue class.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Assassinate instantly destroys an enemy minion, no matter how durable it is. So it is best to keep it for a high health minion or a minion with important buffs or a Taunt in the way of dealing lethal damage. It is also effective against minions with high Attack since it removes the minion while avoiding taking damage.
While hard removal is a premium effect, this card's high cost and being just a spell makes it difficult to use in aggro or tempo decks. Vilespine Slayer or even Sap does a more efficient job in maintaining the board while moving a large minion out of the way.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Heroes of Azeroth" series, depicting the spell Lobotomize. It depicts the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game and World of Warcraft Miniatures Game character Timmo Shadestep.
