Strategy[edit | edit source]

Obsidian Destroyer is very similar to Hogger. Obsidian Destroyer itself is a more powerful minion than Hogger, while the Scarabs that it summons are not as strong as Hogger's Gnolls.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

The entities known as obsidian destroyers are actually enslaved titan constructs that were once called the tol'vir. The tol'vir were created to maintain titan lore repositories and titan machinery surrounding the titan cities of Ulduar and Uldum. Not long after the troll empires divided the insectoid kingdom of the aqir, the aqir that travelled north discovered and overthrew the tol'vir society in Northrend. These aqir would eventually become the race we know as the nerubians today, having adapted the tol'vir's architecture for their own purposes. Similarly, the aqir that travelled south ransacked and overthrew a titan research station near Uldum, renaming themselves the qiraji and calling their new home Ahn'Qiraj.

The Scourge eventually consumed the nerubian empire and threw its few remaining tol'vir slaves into the front lines. Now known as obsidian statues, the tol'vir were often used as figureheads at the forefront of many undead armies after the Third War, inspiring awe and fear in the enemy ranks. Obsidian statues, however, were also able to break free of the obsidian stone that held them and fly into battle, swallowing magic to feed their insatiable hunger as they moved between battles and rained destruction down upon their foes.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Scarab minion was originally a general minion. More than a month after its release, Ben Brode stated that this would be "fixed", and the Scarab made into a Beast type minion.[1] This was eventually achieved through an undocumented change with Patch
