Fiery War Axe
During times of tranquility and harmony, this weapon was called by its less popular name, Chilly Peace Axe.
How to get[edit | edit source]
Two copies of Fiery War Axe are automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the warrior class.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Fiery War Axe is a decent source of early damage for warrior decks; for 3 Mana it can be used against heroes as 6 damage over 2 turns, or it can be used to clear early minions. Killing minions is almost always the superior tactic with Fiery War Axe, especially in the early game.
While the Warrior class has plenty of weapon choices that either have additional effects (such as Blood Razor or Brass Knuckles) or have higher damage output (such as Gorehowl or Arcanite Reaper), at 3 Mana Fiery War Axe is one of Warrior's cheapest weapon option (of the Classic set), making it useful for decks with cards that utilize and upgrade weapons such as Phantom Freebooter, Forge of Souls and Hobart Grapplehammer.
For cheap early-game removal, Warrior has plenty of options, such as Slam and Cleave, so when including Fiery War Axe it's ideal to have a deck that will benefit more from its Weapon status or in extremely aggressive decks.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Fiery War Axe is a Bind on Equip epic level 35 two-handed axe from World of Warcraft. A rare world drop, it is one of the lowest-level epic items in the game.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
