Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This minion's triggered effect only activates from being specifically targeted by a spell from the controlling player. Area of effect spells will not activate it.[1]
  • Like all spell-triggered effects, this minion's effect takes place before the triggering spell completes. For example, casting Shadow Word: Pain on this minion will result in it dealing 3 damage to a single random enemy,[2] then being destroyed.[3] Additionally, Counterspell will not prevent this trigger.[4]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Eydis Darkbane is best utilized by classes that have a lot of minion buffing cards (priest, paladin, druid).

Lore[edit | edit source]

Eydis Darkbane in World of Warcraft
"Only by working together will you defeat the final challenge. From the depths of Icecrown come two of the Scourge's most powerful lieutenants -- fierce val'kyr, winged harbingers of the Lich King!
Tirion Fordring

Eydis is the twin of Fjola Lightbane, two val'kyr who together feature as the Twin Val'kyr, an encounter in the Argent Tournament's Trial of the Crusader raid.

From Wowpedia:

"The Twin Val'kyr, Fjola Lightbane and Eydis Darkbane, are a pair making up the fourth (and ostensibly final) encounter in the Trial of the Crusader raid. They both share the same health pool much like the Twin Emperors. Fjola and Eydis are two very powerful val'kyr that were originally sent by the Lich King along with their Vengeful Val'kyr army to disrupt, destroy, and terrorize the Argent Tournament and its citizens. But during this attack Argent Confessor Paletress comes to the defense of the tournament and battles the twins. Paletress is victorious, and Fjola and Eydis are captured. Their bonds are maintained by Priestess Alorah and Priest Grimmin. They later appear as the "final" challenge of the coliseum after the raid has defeated the Faction Champions.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Icecrown" series, for the card Askalti Darksteel.
  • Despite their obvious lore connection and significant card similarities (both 3 mana 3/4 legendary minions with very similar triggered effects), Eydis and Fjola Lightbane have no specific synergy, aside from both fitting well in decks with lots of spells that target friendly minions.
