Notes[edit | edit source]
- This minion's Battlecry has two steps:
Strategy[edit | edit source]
This minion's Battlecry is excellent at empowering a friendly minion, essentially trading 1 Health for 2 Attack. It is especially useful to activate minions with enrage, or other effects that trigger on being damaged. A short list includes:
- Amani Berserker
- Acolyte of Pain
- Raging Worgen
- Frothing Berserker
- Grim Patron
- Grommash Hellscream
This minion's battlecry can also be used to target enemy minions. This is ideally used to destroy low health minions, since the Attack bonus will also be granted to the enemy target, making it generally unwise to leave the minion alive to return the favour the next round. While this wastes the Taskmaster's potential for increasing damage output, it can be a very useful removal option, adding to this minion's versatility.
