Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Grievous Bite first deals damage to the targeted minion and adjacent ones in the order center-left-right, then resolves all Damage Events (queuing and resolving triggers) in the same order.[verification requested]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card is a weaker and less expensive alternative to Powershot. It's a great fit for a Control Hunter, allowing them to cheaply and efficiently remove several weak minions.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This and Meteor are the only spells to have the same "low-high-low" damage-dealing pattern as Explosive Shot. Swipe is also similar in its ability to do one high and several low amounts of damage.
