Strategy[edit | edit source]

Kor'Kron Elite is a powerful damage dealer due to its charge ability. Charge allows a unit to attack on the first turn, almost effectively guaranteeing damage. Kor'Kron Elite is best used to deal damage quickly, and its 4 mana cost 4 damage and 3 health makes it a powerful turn 4 card. Another strategy that can be used is to wait until you have 6-8 mana to place the card, buff it up and immediately attack. This can catch your opponent by surprise and do devastating damage to their health or to a minion.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

The Kor'kron Guard, or Kor'kron, is an organization within the Horde. For the most part, they are seen as the elite fighting force of the Horde, serving as the personal bodyguards of the Warchief and enforcers of his command. They are stationed in many areas, including the Warchief's own fortress of Grommash Hold in Orgrimmar, and appear to be training other warriors of the Horde. They are stronger and more powerful than the city's regular guards, the Orgrimmar Grunts.
The Kor'kron were originally an elite band of orcs that served as Thrall's bodyguards. Under Garrosh Hellscream's regime, the Kor'kron greatly expanded in power, albeit narrowing its racial composition down to almost universally orcs. They served as the warchief's primary soldiers during the Siege of Orgrimmar, which ended in Warchief Hellscream's forced removal from power.
