Avian Watcher is a rare neutral minion card, from the One Night in Karazhan set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Two copies of regular Avian Watcher are obtained by defeating Terestian Illhoof‎, the third boss in One Night in Karazhan's third wing, The Menagerie.

As a Wild format card, both regular and golden versions of Avian Watcher can also be crafted for the following amounts:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Avian Watcher 100 20
Golden Avian Watcher 800 100

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Thanks to its Battlecry, this minion gains value in a Secret-oriented deck, providing decent stats and Taunt for 5 mana. Without a Secret in play, this minion is too weak for its mana cost.

To make sure that the Battlecry activates, hold this minion back until it can be played together with a Secret in a single turn. That requires 6 mana for a Paladin, 7 mana for a Hunter, or 8 mana for a Mage. However, if a Mage has Ice Block in play they will usually be able to play this on turn 5, as that Secret seldom triggers so early in the game.
