The ground quaked beneath the behemoth as Dr. Boom continued: "…with over 400 TONS of solid Storm Silver plate." Then he beeped a small remote. "And luxury spikes!"

Strategy[edit | edit source]

For Warriors, Galakrond provides a sizable amount of Attack to your hero with each Invoke, which add ups to a significant amount of Attack over time. This lets Galakrond Warrior control the early game or deal face damage regularly. Because of this, Galakrond fits better in an aggressive deck to capitalize on the extra damage he grants, though midrange and control builds can also capitalize on the free removal as they build Galakrond up over the game.

Galakrond's Battlecry draws minions and gives them a large stat boost, which adds a lot of pressure on board, giving them an extra push or two needed to finish off A weakened opponent. Scion of Ruin is an extremely powerful card to pull with Galakrond, giving you three 7/6 minions with Rush for a very low cost. Scrap Golem is also a good pull, giving you an 8/9 Taunt minion that has a Deathrattle which increases armour by 8. They need to not be drawn before playing Galakrond, however, further emphasizing pushing aggression. Dedicated Galakrond builds can usually afford to wait until he reaches Azeroth's End to play him for maximum value, as Warrior has many board control tools to complement the Invoke to hold back the enemy and Galakrond himself offers no real tempo advantage when played. The Dragon Claw combined with Galakrond's hero power can easily deal 16 damage at least (more if stacked with Invokes), enough to smash through weakened opponents, and the heavily buffed minions can easily finish off opponents that survive Galakrond's onslaught.

Galakrond fits well in a Pirate Warrior deck, since Galakrond and pirates both compliment each other's strengths - the only counteractive interaction involves Ritual Chopper and Hoard Pillager.

You could include Galakrond with Hack the System to finish the quest quicker, but adding both means you'll lose Anraphet's Core once you turn into Galakrond.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Galakrond was a massive proto-dragon, who is known as the "progenitor of dragonkind". He was a threat which five proto-dragons of varying colors united against. It is said that from him the Titans created the Aspects, but this is a rumor the Aspects actively encouraged so as to keep the truth about Galakrond a secret from the dragonflights.
His size alone was greater than all of the Aspects combined, large enough that the only possible being Galakrond could be compared to was himself. His roar could be heard from miles around, and the flap of his wings generated powerful wind. As he continued to consume the life-energies of his fellow proto-dragons, Galakrond grew hideous mutations all over his body (such as limbs and even eyes) and his skin started to decay, almost as if he had become an undead like his victims. Galakrond was not always this large and he used to have a smoother, more streamlined appearance. His mutations were caused by cannibalizing on other proto-dragons, and as a by-product of his absorption of the proto-dragons' life essence his victims came back as undead, called the not-living.

This version of Galakrond is one of five forms he takes in Descent of Dragons, each catering to a League of E.V.I.L. member. This incarnation was reanimated by Dr. Boom's mad science, using metal made from Storm Silver Ore to provide the Father of Dragons with even greater destructive power.

His other forms are as follows:
