Strategy[edit | edit source]

Hungry Ettin has 14 stat points and a taunt, which is worth roughly 7 mana. Having a drawback worth 2 mana, it does not pass the vanilla test: what this means is that when Hungry Ettin is played and 2 mana, on average, is used to kill the summoned minion, a bigger minion could have been achieved, had the 8 mana been used to summon it in the first place. This makes the Hungry Ettin a weak card.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Your fault!

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Ettins are a race of two-headed giants found in several highland areas around the Eastern Kingdoms, mostly in the Twilight Highlands, the Redridge Mountains and the hills and forests of Gilneas and Silverpine. They are also found in Highmountain on the Broken Isles.
The ettins of Silverpine came from Gilneas, and now wander the land searching for their next juicy meal, though the Forsaken have managed to subjugate and utilize some of them to haul their wagons throughout the forest. Many ettins have also been enslaved or recruited by the Twilight's Hammer cult.
The ettins of Highmountain seem to operate under some sort of hierarchy above their already existing tribal network, as Hill Prince Urgo, like his father before him, was destined to be the lord of all the hill ettin tribes in Highmountain. They build armor from stolen Gilneas houses and Suramar ruins, and some forge their own armor. The ettin of Highmountain eat tauren that have been cooked over bonfires.
