Strategy[edit | edit source]

Essentially a scaled-up version of Fire Elemental, this card serves to deal some extra damage in the late game. Its high Attack leaves it vulnerable to Big Game Hunter and its average Health for the cost means it will die to most other large minions or even a Fireball plus a Fireblast. Therefore, its value usually relies on its Battlecry being used effectively, similar to other expensive minions with powerful text effects like Alexstrasza or Ragnaros.

However, the high attack makes it a powerful threat if it can be Stealthed, e.g. by a Finicky Cloakfield.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

The North Sea Kraken is a neutral level 82 elite kraken attacking both The Firehawk and The Wavecrest near the middle of the Sea Reaver's Run, south of Hrothgar's Landing.
Kraken, or krakken, are two different types of sea monsters. The first type are giant squid-like creatures with tentacles. The second type are more fish-like with giant fins and smaller in size. The second type of kraken are more fish-like, with armored hides, giant fins, large mouths, dorsal spikes, and a horizontal tail reminiscent of whale flukes. They have scales, but do not appear to have visible gills. Little lore has been given about them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:
Kolorath is a hostile level 85 elite kraken swimming in a circle around the entire border of the Abyssal Depths. He can be kited, however his melee swings hit for well over 800k damage and drops only a few silver for your efforts.
