Strategy[edit | edit source]

Please add any available information to this section.

Classes that can ping the 1/1 Taunt minions from High Justice Grimstone's hero power with their hero power have an advantage in this fight: Mage, Druid and especially Rogue whose hero power can kill 2 minions per activation at the cost of a little health.

Cards like Assassinate and Shadow Word: Death can take care of his more difficult minions.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Blackrock Mountain[edit | edit source]

The sooty stone halls of Blackrock Depths form a dim, sprawling city whose subterranean streets are filled with Dark Iron dwarves. The Dark Irons are enslaved to the will of Ragnaros the Firelord, and that’s a pretty time-consuming job. When they’re not slaving away, however, they make time for fun! Brawls in the Grim Guzzler, brawls in the Ring of Law . . . really just brawling everywhere they feel like brawling.

You’d never think it, but the Dark Iron Dwarves have some pretty strong ideas about their version of Blackrock justice. Uther might not agree with them, but hey, this isn’t Uther-rock Depths! Emerge victorious from this trial by combat and two copies of the Rogue spell Gang Up will be yours to keep![1]

World of Warcraft[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

High Justice Grimstone appears when a player stands on the mesh circle at the center of the Ring of the Law inside Blackrock Depths. He is flagged red, but cannot be attacked; his purpose is to explain what happens during the Ring of Law boss event.
Ring of Law

From Wowpedia:

Ring of Law is an encounter at the Ring of the Law in Blackrock Depths, overseen by High Justice Grimstone.
The event is started when a player stands on the mesh circle at the center of this area. The entrance to the ring is closed, and High Justice Grimstone appears in the ring. This dark iron dwarf is flagged red, but cannot be attacked; his purpose is to explain what is about to happen.
Dungeon Journal
There is only one punishment for crimes committed against the Dark Iron dwarves: death. Ancient tradition calls for the guilty to pay the blood price in the Ring of the Law by battling savage creatures gathered from across Azeroth. To date, it is unknown if anyone has ever survived this brutal crucible.
