Red Whelp is a Tier 1 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A Dominant Player is determined at random, whose first(from left to right) Red Whelp trigger first. Then two players trigger their left-most untriggered Red Whelp in turns.
  • Minions killed by a Red Whelp will be removed before a next Red Whelp triggers. Related triggers will also be resolved. Further Red Whelps will still deal damage equal to initial number of Dragons. If a Red Whelp is killed, it will not trigger its ability this combat.
  • Red Whelps are triggered before Hero Powers.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Red Whelp is a weak minion in the first turn, but with enough friendly Dragons, it becomes a powerful minion in early and midgame, as it is almost sure to kill a minion in the first few turns, and can also help Waxrider Togwaggle become stronger.

If you've got Kalecgos, Arcane Aspect, Red Whelp is a good candidate to buff, for the chance to break Divine Shields and kill enemy key minions like Pack Leader, Soul Juggler or Kangor's Apprentice.
