Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion is a decent Taunt, which can adapt to match the current board state. Crackling Shield, Liquid Membrane, and Rocky Carapace all help Ornery Direhorn's main role. However, Shrouding Mist is often counter-intuitive, while Massive is entirely worthless. All other options are neutral.

Being a Taunt, this minion has synergy with Fire Plume's Heart.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Direhorns are three-horned dinosaurs found mainly on the Isle of Giants and the Isle of Thunder. These saurian titans populate many islands in the South Seas.
The Zandalari breed specific direhorn species for their small size for use as mounts. A common coming-of-age rite among the Zandalari is to travel to one of the violent, beast-ruled islands near the capital to steal or subdue a wild creature, such as a direhorn or devilsaur. Before a Zandalari sets out to tame a direhorn, they are known to traditionally carve sigils into their arm with ceremonial horns, speak to a bestial loa, drink a wild draught, wear a twin-tusk mask, and "roar with the inner voice".
Even at a tiny size, direhorns are known to wreak havoc on unsuspecting victims. There is an old Zandalari saying about wild direhorns: "Run!
