|Golden Confessor Paletress||3200||1600|
Notes[edit | edit source]
- This card's Inspire effect has a chance to summon any collectible legendary minion, including another Confessor Paletress and those specific to classes other than the controlling hero. Uncollectible minions such as Thaddius will not be summoned.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
This card is best used with Inspire synergy cards such as Maiden of the Lake or Fencing Coach to be able to play this card on 5 or 6 mana and still activate its Inspire effect on the same turn. Garrison Commander is also strong with this card if you manage to have the mana to use your Hero Power twice.
Possible summons[edit | edit source]
As of Journey to Un'Goro there are 153 collectible legendary minions in the game, giving this card a ~0.653% chance of summoning any given minion. The average mana cost of a summoned legendary minion is 6.17 mana. The below table lists all collectible legendary minions available in Wild format, representing the full range of possible summons from this minion's Inspire effect.

Whenever another minion takes damage, destroy it. With the help of his trusty sidekick Dreadscale, the giant jormungar Acidmaw is ready to face any knight!
|Akali, the Rhino||Legendary||Beast||Warrior||8||5||5|
Rush, Overkill: Draw a Rush minion and give it +5/+5. Most trolls only get to “AAAAHHH!” and don’t make it to the “kali” part.
|Al'Akir the Windlord||Legendary||Elemental||Shaman||8||3||5|
Windfury, Charge, Divine Shield, Taunt He is the weakest of the four Elemental Lords. And the other three don't let him forget it.
Battlecry: Set a hero's remaining Health to 15. Alexstrasza the Life-Binder brings life and hope to everyone. Except Deathwing. And Malygos. And Nekros.
Deathrattle: Deal 8 damage to all minions. That's short for "Anomnomnomnomalus".
Deathrattle: Return this to your hand and summon a 4/4 Nerubian. Was actually a pretty nice guy before, you know, the whole Lich King thing.
Battlecry: Discover a powerful Artifact. He's very good at retrieving artifacts. From other people's museums.
Battlecry: Shuffle a copy of your opponent's deck into your deck. Nobody expects the Archbishop's Benediction!
Whenever you cast a spell, put a 'Fireball' spell into your hand. Antonidas was the Grand Magus of the Kirin Tor, and Jaina's mentor. This was a big step up from being Grand Magus of Jelly Donuts.
Whenever you draw a minion, add a copy of it to your hand. His worgen children call him Archmage AROO-OO-OO-OO-gal.
Deathrattle: Add a random Death Knight card to your hand. There must always be a Lick King.
After you cast a spell, refresh your Hero Power. Gadgetzan has always run an under-the-table auction house, and business has been PRETTY good for Beardo since the population explosion. And since the explosion that destroyed the competing auction houses in the city.
Your minions cost (1). Call her "Tweety". She'll find it real funny. I PROMISE.
Battlecry and Deathrattle: Summon a Jade Golem. Though young, Aya took over as the leader of Jade Lotus through her charisma and strategic acumen when her predecessor was accidentally crushed by a jade golem.

|Baku the Mooneater||Legendary||Beast||Any||9||7||8|
Start of Game: If your deck has only odd-Cost cards, upgrade your Hero Power. In her defense, it did look like a cookie.
Battlecry: Summon a 1/1 copy of a random minion in your deck. He used to play every part, until Moroes confiscated his Orb of Deception.
At the end of your turn, deal 2 damage to ALL other characters. Baron Geddon was Ragnaros's foremost lieutenant, until he got FIRED.
Your minions trigger their Deathrattles twice. There used to be five Horsemen but one of them left because a job opened up in the deadmines and the benefits were better.
Can't Attack. Whenever this minion takes damage, deal 3 damage to a random enemy. The upper windows used to be for aiming. Then we thought: "Hey! MORE cannons!"
Battlecry: Equip a random weapon for each player. PREPARE PARTY SERVOS FOR IMMEDIATE DEPLOYMENT.
Has +1 Attack for each card you've discarded this game. As a young blood-princess she learned the proper way for a lady to curtsy, how to address fellow members of royalty, and how to bite them.
Spell Damage +1. Deathrattle: Draw a card. He's in charge of the Annual Scarlet Monastery Blood Drive!
Whenever your hero takes damage, this minion takes it instead. Bolf keeps coming in 2nd at the Grand Tournament. It might be his year this year, if Lebron doesn't enter.
Whenever a friendly minion dies while this is in your hand, gain +1 Attack. Spoiler alert: Bolvar gets melted and then sits on an ice throne and everyone forgets about him.
After a friendly minion loses Divine Shield, gain +2 Attack. He's so hot right now.

Battlecry: Deal damage equal to this minion's Attack randomly split among all enemies. C'Thun's least favorite Hearthstone card: Eye for an Eye.
Deathrattle: Summon a 4/5 Baine Bloodhoof. Cairne was killed by Garrosh, so... don't put this guy in a Warrior deck. It's pretty insensitive.
Battlecry: Give your weapon +1/+1. He was this close to piloting a massive juggernaut into Stormwind Harbor. If it weren't for those pesky kids!
Battlecry: Summon 3 Pirates from your deck. Give them Rush. "You three! Get in the cannon!"
Choose One - Give your other minions +2/+2; or Summon two 2/2 Treants with Taunt. Yes, he's a demigod. No, he doesn't need to wear a shirt.
Each turn this is in your hand, transform it into a card your opponent is holding. He's everyone you want to be.
Deathrattle: If you're holding a Dragon, deal 3 damage to all minions. Chillmaw keeps trying to ruin the Grand Tournament, and she would've done it too, if it weren't for those dang kids!
Battlecry: The next spell you cast this turn costs Health instead of Mana. Even after all this time, Gul'dan still makes Cho'gall go get donuts and coffee.
Whenever you draw a card, put another copy into your hand. Left head and right head can never agree about what to eat for dinner, so they always end up just eating ramen again.
Whenever you discard this, give it +2/+2 and return it to your hand. A bit of a snob: still refuses to drive anything with automatic transmission.
Inspire: Summon a random Legendary minion. She sees into your past and makes you face your fears. Most common fear: Getting Majordomo out of Sneed's Old Shredder.
Battlecry: Draw a Rush, Lifesteal, and Deathrattle card from your deck. "1 minion… ah, ah, ah! 2 minions… ah, ah, ah! 3 minions… ah, ah, ah!"

Battlecry: Destroy all other minions and discard your hand. Once a noble dragon known as Neltharion, Deathwing lost his mind and shattered Azeroth before finally being defeated. Daddy issues?
Deathrattle: Put all Dragons from your hand into the battlefield. To his credit, Deathwing really took to heart the feedback he was receiving that he needed to be "more of a team player".
Whenever you draw a minion, summon a 1/1 copy of it. The children were puzzled by the scratches covering the insides of their toy-boxes.
Battlecry: Give a random minion in your hand +5/+5. The brilliant mastermind of the Grimy Goons, Han sometimes thinks about ditching the idiot Cho, but that would just tear him apart.
Battlecry: Summon two 1/1 Boom Bots. WARNING: Bots may explode. MARVEL AT HIS MIGHT!
Deathrattle: Swap this with a minion from your deck. She will NOT STOP until she gets tenure.

Battlecry: Change all enemy minions' Attack to 1. Nobody rocks a monocle like Eadric.

Costs (1) less for each Mana you've spent on spells. On bended knee Thekal placed his weapon upon Shirvallah’s altar, whereupon she slowly knocked it off with her paw.
Battlecry: Repeat all other Battlecries from cards you played this game (targets chosen randomly). Beware the Shudderwock, my son. We're fresh out of vorpal daggers.

|Sir Finley Mrrgglton||Legendary||Murloc||Any||1||1||3|
Battlecry: Discover a new basic Hero Power. In addition to fluent Common, he also speaks fourteen dialects of 'mrgl'.
Costs (1) less for each friendly Pirate. What's more boss than riding a parrot with a jawbone for a shoulderpad while wielding a giant hook-lance-thing and wearing a pirate hat? NOTHING.
|Sneed's Old Shredder||Legendary||Mech||Any||8||5||7|
Deathrattle: Summon a random Legendary minion. When Sneed was defeated in the Deadmines, his shredder was sold at auction to an anonymous buyer. (Probably Hogger.)
|Soggoth the Slitherer||Legendary||General||Any||9||5||9|
Can't be targeted by spells or Hero Powers. Don't tell Soggoth, but in the future he gets totally owned by the Master's Glaive and his skull becomes a tourist attraction.

|Swamp King Dred||Legendary||Beast||Hunter||7||9||9|
After your opponent plays a minion, attack it. Swamp King Dred, more like Swamp King Dead, amiright?
Deathrattle: Take control of a random enemy minion. Sylvanas was turned into the Banshee Queen by Arthas, but he probably should have just killed her because it just pissed her off.
Battlecry: Your opponent takes two turns. Then you take two turns. Follows adventurers, seeking the ultimate time magic: the ability to reload.
Battlecry: Replay every card from another class you've played this game (targets chosen randomly). Those who cannot remember their card history are doomed to repeat it.

|The Black Knight||Legendary||General||Any||6||4||5|
Battlecry: Destroy an enemy minion with Taunt. He was sent by the Lich King to disrupt the Argent Tournament. We can pretty much mark that a failure.
Whenever this attacks and kills a minion, gain +2/+2. Has 20 years of training in classical ballet, but ALLLLLL he ever gets asked to do is boogie.
Battlecry: Draw a Beast, Dragon, and Murloc from your deck. The Curator guards Azeroth’s deadliest creatures, but it’s secretly terrified of squirrels.

At the end of your turn, add a random Death Knight card to your hand. "All that I am: anger, cruelty, vengeance, 8 attack - I bestow upon you, my chosen knight."

|The Skeleton Knight||Legendary||General||Any||6||7||4|
Deathrattle: Reveal a minion in each deck. If yours costs more, return this to your hand. Apparently it really was just a flesh wound.
After you cast a spell on this minion, summon a 1/1 Plant and cast another copy on it. I am the Voraxx. I speak for the weeds.
Battlecry: Transform another random minion into a 5/5 Devilsaur or a 1/1 Squirrel. Tinkmaster Overspark nearly lost his Tinker's license after the Great Ironforge Squirrel Stampede of '09.
Divine Shield. Taunt. Deathrattle: Equip a 5/3 Ashbringer. If you haven't heard the Tirion Fordring theme song, it's because it doesn't exist.
Battlecry: Add a random Legendary minion from the past to your hand. Just a twist to the left, one quarter turn to the right and … oops! Well, we didn’t need that timeline anyway.
Battlecry and Deathrattle: Add a Spare Part card to your hand. Something about power converters.

Battlecry: If your C'Thun has at least 10 Attack, summon another Emperor. Do they make decisions based on age? "I'm two minutes older therefore we burn this village."
Can't be targeted by Spells or Hero Powers. Millennia of evolutionary pressures turned his species into the Faerie Dragons we know today.
Battlecry: Draw 3 cards. Put any minions you drew directly into the battlefield. Leader of the Alliance! Father of Anduin! Also he likes to play Arena, and he averages 12 wins.
Battlecry: Swap Health with another minion. Vol'jin is a shadow hunter, which is like a shadow priest except more voodoo.
|War Master Voone||Legendary||General||Warrior||4||4||3|
Battlecry: Copy all Dragons in your hand. War Master sounds cooler than Dragon Sitter.
Choose One - Transform into one of Loti's four dinosaur forms. “Ravasaur!”

You start the game with one of Whizbang's Wonderful Decks! From the prestigious Westfall Wonderfuls.
Divine Shield, Taunt, Lifesteal Wickerflame spent years as a recruit for the Goons, never making the big-time because he always fired his chest-cannon too slowly. "Hey," he thought, "maybe if I keep my beard lit on fire, I can do this faster." BOOM, promoted.
Cards you draw from your Hero Power cost (0). He can summon anything, even a FEARSOME DOOMGUARD*.
*He's pretty sure this is going to work out.
Taunt. Battlecry: Draw cards until you draw one that isn't a Dragon. Wrathion, son of Deathwing, is a dragon. Why isn't he tagged as a dragon, you ask? WHAT, ARE YOU TRYING TO BLOW HIS COVER??
|Xaril, Poisoned Mind||Legendary||General||Rogue||4||3||2|
Battlecry and Deathrattle: Add a random Toxin card to your hand. It's basically your own fault if you go around drinking weird green potions handed out by creepy mantid dudes.

Battlecry: Cast a random spell for each spell you've cast this game (targets chosen randomly). I spell your doom... Y-O-U-R D-O-O-M!
At the end of your turn, add a Dream Card to your hand. Ysera rules the Emerald Dream. Which is some kind of green-mirror-version of the real world, or something?
Whenever you target a minion with a spell, cast it again on its neighbors. Serenity. Peace. Many frogs.
|Zerek, Master Cloner||Legendary||General||Priest||6||5||5|
Deathrattle: If you've cast any spells on this minion, resummon it. His original name was Aerek. Then the first clone was Berek. They went evil around Merek.

Lore[edit | edit source]
- "The story behind Confessor Paletress is that she's basically a good guy; you show up at the [Argent Tournament] and what her job is, is to make sure that you're trained and ready to go, to fight the challenges that await you. And the way that she does that is that she summons up some of the greatest foes you've had in the past, essentially your memories, in a shadow form, and forces you to fight them all over again to conquer your fears and to get ready for the challenges that await." - Jason Chayes
- "Before heroes can challenge the forces of darkness, they must defeat agents of the Light. Highlord Tirion Fordring has selected a formidable priest from the Argent Crusade to test combatants' mettle. Paletress will do everything in her power to ensure that only those with strong faith will confront the Scourge." - World of Warcraft Dungeon Journal
- Argent Confessor Paletress is a human priest who can be found in the Argent Pavilion at the western portion of the Argent Tournament Grounds. Periodically, she gives a speech to the various praying faction Champions.
History[edit | edit source]
The original design for Confessor Paletress was an 8 mana 2/4 with the text "Battlecry: Summon 3 Legendary minions and set their Health to 1." This was intended to reflect Paletress design in World of Warcraft. However, in play testing the developers found Paletress was a "very swingy card", with her ability sometimes summoning three Ragnaros the Firelord, and dealing 24 damage to the opponent at the end of the turn; and at others summoning three Lorewalker Chos.
The developers found this design to feature too much RNG and too much power overall, and the text was therefore changed to "At the end of your turn, summon a random Legendary minion." However, while this was better, the developers realised they were missing out on the opportunity to involve the expansion's new mechanic - Inspire. The card's text was therefore changed to its final version, "Inspire: Summon a random Legendary minion.", and its stats changed to a 6 mana 2/4. However, further testing revealed the design was too strong, with players able to play the minion on turn 8 and immediately use their Hero Power, again creating a strong "swing" effect; her mana cost was therefore increased from 6 to 7, but in compensation her Attack was increased from 2 to 5.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Icecrown" series, for the card Argent Confessor Paletress.
