How to get[edit | edit source]

Two Golden copies of Fan of Knives are a reward for raising a rogue to levels 28 and 30.

Fan of Knives is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Notes[edit | edit source]

This spell has two steps:

  • First, it deals its area of effect damage to all enemy minions, queuing and resolving triggers in order of play (see Damage for details).
  • Then, it draws a card, queuing and resolving triggers.[1]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Fan of Knives presents one of the few ways for Rogues to deal damage to several enemy minions (area of effect). It can be comboed with Spell Damage and can clear an enemy board of minions with low health very effectively.

Many Rogue archetypes, for example Miracle Rogue, rely heavily on card draw. The Rogue spell Preparation can be used in conjunction with Fan of Knives for powerful tempo turns.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Fan of Knives is a rogue ability from World of Warcraft. It deals area of effect damage in a radius around the caster.

This card's art depicts the spell being cast on a pack of ghouls, undead minions of the Scourge.
