Barrens Stablehand is an epic neutral minion card, from the Classic set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Barrens Stablehand can be obtained through Classic card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward. Regular Barrens Stablehand can also be obtained through the Highest Rank Bonus chest at the end of a Ranked season.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Barrens Stablehand 400 100
Golden Barrens Stablehand 1600 400

Strategy[edit | edit source]

A solid Arena card. Strong pulls include Stranglethorn Tiger, King Mukla, King Krush, and Core Hound. Even getting an Ironfur Grizzly is a 7 mana 7/7 with upsides split between two bodies. However, the high number of misses and this minion's restricted cost make it undesirable for Constructed play.

Because of the huge range of stats and effects beasts have, Barrens Stablehand is best played when ahead on the board to reduce the cost of missing.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

The Barrens is a large zone in central Kalimdor controlled mostly by the Horde. It is a massive savanna, with a few oases in the north-central region around the Crossroads. Before the upheaval, several large kaldorei cities stood here. Now, those brave few willing to scrape out a life on the arid plains inevitably run afoul of centaur warbands or quilboar raiding parties. Despite its often uninviting terrain and hostile inhabitants, the Barrens receive a good deal of interest from Alliance and Horde alike, as well as races native to Kalimdor. Trade routes crisscross the landscape leading to and from more inviting regions, and the most notable route is the Gold Road that runs north-to-south through the Barrens and beyond. Rumours suggest that precious minerals and treasure-filled ruins await those with the courage to investigate.

This orc stablehand appears to be tending to a kodo beast.
