Gentle Megasaur is a tier 6 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Gentle Megasaur is the endgame goal for every Murloc build, giving all Murlocs a substantial buff. While Flaming Claws, Rocky Carapace, and Volcanic Might give marginal stat increases, it's Crackling Shield and Poison Spit that are highly coveted, turning your Murlocs into extremely resilient insta-kill murder machines, which no other tribes can compare. Living Spores is a runner-up choice, good for combating Divine Shields and diverting attacks. Massive is useful if you have non-Murloc minions you want to protect (usually for mixed builds) or want to further boost your stats with Strongshell Scavenger, and Lightning Speed is dependent on your opponent's composition and your own buffs, such as if you want to give a Poisonous Murloc more chances to break through a huge Taunt minion or allow a Divine Shielded Murloc to make better trades.

This is one of the best Battlecries to double with Brann Bronzebeard by far, as it gives double the chance to get the coveted Poisonous Spit and Crackling Shield Adaptations while also offering a small chance to get both at once, or even combine one of the two with Lightning Speed.
