Cave Hydra is a tier 4 minion in Battlegrounds game mode.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Cave Hydra is one of the two sources of AOE damage in Battlegrounds, the other being Foe Reaper 4000, which in turn allows it to damage enemies hiding behind Taunts. It is normally best to position this minion on the left to clear Divine Shields, allowing your larger minions to do their full damage. Alternatively, it also makes an excellent target for buffs, allowing it to potentially kill multiple minions in a single strike, although buffing it to a significant value can be difficult due to its high tier. If buffing Cave Hydra, avoid giving it Taunts from Houndmaster or Defender of Argus to maximize its chances of survival.
