Grand Crusader is an epic neutral minion card, from the Grand Tournament set.

Grand Crusader can be obtained through The Grand Tournament card packs, or through crafting.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Grand Crusader 400 100
Golden Grand Crusader 1600 400

Notes[edit]

  • While providing random paladin cards, this minion is itself neutral. As a result, it provides a means for any class to potentially obtain Secrets as well as weapons.

Strategy[edit]

The presence of this card increases the value of learning the range of possible paladin Secrets.

Grand Crusader has a good Battlecry, but she has low stats for her cost, so, she serves more as a filler card, since she is a 5/5 card that gives a random Paladin Card.

Possible cards[edit]

Since Grand Crusader is only playable in wild, only the Wild format Paladin cards are relevant. For the full listing, see here.

Quotes[edit]

Summon
Answer the call of the Light.
Attack
For the Light!

Lore[edit]

Hearthstone[edit]

Sometimes, a mere crusader just isn’t enough. For those times, choose a Grand Crusader instead. Not only does it slice, dice, and gleam with holy light, this shining paragon of knighthood packs a potent Paladin punch![1]

World of Warcraft[edit]

"Grand Crusader" has many uses in World of Warcraft. The Trial of the Grand Crusader was the Heroic mode version of the Trial of the Crusader raid, the main content of the Argent Tournament, where players combined forces to battle bosses such as Lord Jaraxxus. "Grand Crusader" is also the title of a paladin talent, as well as a title granted to the first players on each realm to complete the Trial of the Grand Crusader with 50 attempts remaining.

Trivia[edit]

  • The release of this card was met with some surprise by players, due to its being a neutral card with the ability to grant paladin class cards, which some players equated with a loss of paladin class identity. This followed the revealing of cards like Silver Hand Regent which also significantly increased the availability of paladin cards to heroes of all classes, illustrating a paladin sub-theme within the The Grand Tournament expansion.[2][3][4]
