Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card's Immune effect means that it can be used to tackle minions without taking damage, clearing a path for your heavy hitters to strike at the enemy hero, or to take out opposing minions that greatly threaten you, such as the Core Hound. It can also provide a useful form of direct damage for finishing the enemy hero. However, the card's high cost should be considered.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • When charging your hero into a suicide attempt with the Bow, the "skull" symbol will show up despite the fact that your hero is Immune.[1]

Lore[edit | edit source]

In World of Warcraft, the Gladiator's Longbow is the top PvP reward bow available to competitors each season. Each season, there is a different adjective before it, such as the Wrathful Gladiator's Longbow or the Cataclysmic Gladiator's Longbow.

Patch changes[edit | edit source]

  • One Night in Karazhan logo full2.png Patch (2016-10-20): Gladiator's Longbow now properly prevents damage caused by Explosive Trap. Prior to Patch (2016-04-24) this weapon's Immune effect would not prevent damage from triggered effects or Secrets such as Explosive Trap.[2][3] This was attempted to be fixed in Patch by making Gladiator's Longbow have a Proposed Attack Event trigger that makes the attacking hero Immune; however, Explosive Trap is also a Proposed Attack Event trigger, meaning the Dominant Player Bug determined which one triggers first - so you had about a 50% chance of blocking the Explosive Trap damage.[4]
