Ripsnarl Captain is a Tier 4 minion in the Battlegrounds game mode.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion can be very strong in the early to mid-game. The stat-boosts can provide just enough damage to kill an enemy and the health can save your normally fragile pirate minions from dying too early. You will typically want to replace Ripsnarl Captain with Dread Admiral Eliza in the late-game, but a golden version of this minion can still pull its weight. With its health sufficently buffed by cards like Southsea Strongarm, it can even prove to be invaluable in an all-pirate war band.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
Arr, the party's here!

Lore[edit | edit source]

This card portrays a Worgen Pirate. As Gilneas has always bordered the ocean, several worgen pirates have been seen on Azeroth before, including the almost worgen-exclusive Brashtide Crew. This cards name seems to be a reference to Admiral Ripsnarl, an admiral who worked with the Defias Brotherhood before his death.
