The Rogue icon.png Rogue is one of the nine classes in Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, represented by Valeera Sanguinar and Maiev Shadowsong.

Heroes[edit | edit source]

Valeera Sanguinar is the default hero for rogues. Players who have unlocked the Maiev Shadowsong alternate hero may choose to play as one of her instead when using any rogue deck. Both heroes use the same gameplay mechanics; the difference is purely cosmetic.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Rogues are backstabbing assassins, known for their stealth, speed and deadly efficiency. Masters of deadly poisons and hidden strikes, most victims of rogues never see their attacker coming. Rogues can slip silently among the shadows, sowing distrust and betrayal among allies, incapacitating sentries and assassinating targets without a sound. Rogues are also masters of speed, unleashing flurries of attacks in devastating combos before sprinting to safety or vanishing out of sight.

Rogues can equip a range of weapons to deal with their enemies on a personal basis. Unlike the huge, clumsy weapons favoured by warriors, rogues prefer small, light weapons such as daggers and knives which they can use to take out their opponents one by one. Rogues always have a knife hidden somewhere, and are always ready to get their hands a little dirty.

Background[edit | edit source]

Main article: Rogue

For rogues, the only code is the contract, and their honor is purchased in gold. Free from the constraints of a conscience, these mercenaries rely on brutal and efficient tactics. Lethal assassins and masters of stealth, they will approach their marks from behind, piercing a vital organ and vanishing into the shadows before the victim hits the ground. Rogues can dip their weapons in paralyzing toxins that render foes unable to defend themselves. These silent stalkers wear leather armor so they can move unencumbered, ensuring that they land the first strike.

With the rogue’s poisons and speed, the first strike is often the last step before the killing blow.[1]

Hero Power[edit | edit source]

Dagger Mastery(201).png

Hero Powers are unique abilities, specific to each class. Hero Powers cost 2 mana, and can be used once per turn.

The rogue Hero Power offers some ability to maintain board control, as it allows your hero to destroy 1-Health minions. This allows you to establish control and force them to waste valuable removal early on. This can also allow you to keep your minions alive longer, adding value. Be careful though, don't take your own Health too low attacking minions or you can tip the advantage into a disadvantage very quickly!

Replacement Hero Powers[edit | edit source]

Poisoned Daggers(22487).png
Death's Shadow(62877).png

Playing Justicar Trueheart will replace Dagger Mastery with Poisoned Daggers.

Playing Valeera the Hollow will replace the current Hero Power with Death's Shadow, as well as replacing the hero.

Unique mechanics[edit | edit source]

Combo is an ability where the stated effect occurs only if the card is not the first one played during the turn. Playing any card is sufficient to trigger a Combo, but Hero Powers will not trigger Combos. Cards with this ability are limited to the rogue class. For more information, see Combo.


  • Using Backstab and then Eviscerate will trigger Eviscerate's Combo effect, making it deal 4 damage instead of 2.
  • Using Preparation and then Headcrack will trigger Headcrack's Combo effect, returning it to your hand next turn.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The rogue class has a number of different play styles. One of the main threats a rogue presents is the ability to do a lot of damage quickly, using Combo effects together with the rogue's Hero Power weapon to do surprising burst damage. Minions like Questing Adventurer, Mana Addict, and Edwin VanCleef can be buffed up to huge amounts of damage by using the rogue's arsenal of numerous low-cost spell cards, while cards like Gadgetzan Auctioneer give the draw power needed to sustain combos. Other good rogue burst cards include Tinker's Sharpsword Oil, Deadly Poison and Cold Blood, as well as their various direct damage spells.

A Combo card is a card that has an additional effect if it is played after any other card. These effects can range from additional damage to drawing another card. In general Combo rewards the use of cheap cards (primarily spells) and allows the rogue to deal large amounts of damage in a single turn. Synergistic rogue cards include Preparation, Backstab and Counterfeit Coin. Edwin VanCleef is the archetypal Combo card, potentially growing into a monster if the rogue can play enough cards that turn.

Rogues are exceptional at using single target damaging abilities on both minions and heroes with cards like Eviscerate, Shadow Strike, and Headcrack, as well as minion Battlecries like SI:7 Agent, Dark Iron Skulker and Undercity Valiant. This aspect can be augmented with decks focused on increasing Spell Damage which allows rogues to whittle down the enemy hero with strengthened spells while also buffing weak spells like Backstab and Fan of Knives into formidable removal cards. Rogues also possess many single target hard removal like Assassinate, Vilespine Slayer, and Blade of C'Thun to push aside whatever huge minion the opponent plays to block their way while keep them defenseless as their health is chipped away at.

The rogue Hero Power Dagger Mastery provides a constant opportunity for low damage removal or hero damage, but can be improved with cards like Deadly Poison, Buccaneer, and Goblin Auto-Barber to much higher levels, in turn setting up the possibility of a Blade Flurry for high damage removal. Rogues can also equip a range of other weapons, such as Assassin's Blade, Perdition's Blade and Deadly Fork.

The rogue weapon theme ties into another: Pirates. Rogues have access to the only class-specific cards for the Pirate minion type, with One-Eyed Cheat, Buccaneer, and Luckydo Buccaneer as well as the synergistic Shady Dealer. The constant availability of weapons to the rogue fits well with the weapon-dependency of Pirate cards like Small-time Buccaneer, Southsea Deckhand, Dread Corsair and Captain Greenskin, although arguably not as well as that of the warrior.

Return effects are another theme of the rogue class, allowing their minions to slip away to restore themselves, or forcing the opponent's minions to retreat back into the hand. Shadowstep, Gadgetzan Ferryman, Anub'ar Ambusher and Anub'arak are friendly examples, while Sap, Vanish and Kidnapper offer other options. These effects can be useful for stalling the opponent, or allowing the rogue to benefit multiple times from useful Battlecries.

A theme that has been added to Rogues in more recent expansions is the ability to steal the power of their opponent's class, in the form of gaining cards from the opponent's class such as Burgle, Undercity Huckster, Swashburglar, Shaku, the Collector, and Hallucination. Rogues also have cards that synergizes with cards not of their own class, like Ethereal Peddler and Obsidian Shard, although it does little to help in mirror matches.

Infamous for striking from the shadows, Stealth is a minor rogue theme, with minions like Master of Disguise, Mini-Mage and Ogre Ninja, as well as Conceal. Shadow Sensei can buff these minions while they're hiding to make their first strike deadlier.Patient Assassin combines Stealth with the Poisonous effect, another minor rogue theme, also seen on Pit Snake and Envenom Weapon.

Rogue is also the only class able to generate The Coin, normally only available at the start of each match, through cards like Cutpurse and Tomb Pillager. Trade Prince Gallywix provides a similar spell in Gallywix's Coin and Counterfeit Coin functions the same as the Coin except they can be added to the deck.

Countering a rogue[edit | edit source]

  • Equipment destruction such as Acidic Swamp Ooze or Harrison Jones to prevent massive damage output from the rogue's Assassin's Blade and Dagger Mastery.
  • Units that make it difficult for the Rogue to attack you in the face directly, helpful effects include Divine Shield and Taunt.
  • Bait the use of board clearing abilities such as Assassinate with your second or third strongest minion so that you can safely summon your strongest minions.
  • Having a few Spellbreakers can be incredibly effective against a rogue deck because of their affinity towards minions such as Bloodsail Raider.
  • Try to play many small minions rather than fewer large ones, since most rogue removal spells are single target.
  • Rogues are one of the more fragile classes, so they will have a difficult time stabilizing when they have taken heavy damage early on.

Name / Desc Rarity Class Cost Description
Assassinate Free Rogue 5 Destroy an enemy minion. If you don't want to be assassinated, move to the Barrens and change your name. Good luck!
Backstab Free Rogue 0 Deal 2 damage to an undamaged minion. It's funny how often yelling "Look over there!" gets your opponent to turn around.
Deadly Poison Free Rogue 1 Give your weapon +2 Attack. Rogues guard the secrets to poison-making carefully, lest magi start incorporating poison into their spells. Poisonbolt? Rain of Poison? Poison Elemental? Nobody wants that.
Fan of Knives Free Rogue 3 Deal 1 damage to all enemy minions. Draw a card. I wouldn't say I LOVE knives, but I'm definitely a fan.
Sap Free Rogue 2 Return an enemy minion to your opponent's hand. Rogues love sappy movies.
Shiv Free Rogue 2 Deal 1 damage. Draw a card. Rogues are experts at SHIV-al-ry.
Sinister Strike Free Rogue 1 Deal 3 damage to the enemy hero. There's something about this strike that just feels off. Sinister, even.
Sprint Free Rogue 7 Draw 4 cards. Rogues are not good joggers.
Vanish Free Rogue 6 Return all minions to their owner's hand. 
Betrayal Common Rogue 2 Force an enemy minion to deal its damage to the minions next to it. Everyone has a price. Gnomes, for example, can be persuaded by stuffed animals and small amounts of chocolate.
Cheat Death Common Rogue 2 Secret: When a friendly minion dies, return it to your hand. It costs (2) less. Reported.
Cold Blood Common Rogue 1 Give a minion +2 Attack. Combo: +4 Attack instead. "I'm cold blooded, check it and see!"
Eviscerate Common Rogue 2 Deal 2 damage. Combo: Deal 4 damage instead. There is a high cost to Eviscerating your opponent: It takes a long time to get blood stains out of leather armor.
Hallucination Common Rogue 1 Discover a card from your opponent's class. It's the good kind of hallucination.
Jade Shuriken Common Rogue 2 Deal 2 damage. Combo: Summon a Jade GolemGood news is, after you remove it from your wound, you can use it to pay your medical bills!
Leeching Poison Common Rogue 2 Give your weapon LifestealNo actual leeches were harmed in the creation of this card.
Razorpetal Volley Common Rogue 2 Add two Razorpetals to your hand that deal 1 damage. The result of a fundamental misunderstanding of the phrase "flower power".
Shadow Strike Common Rogue 3 Deal 5 damage to an undamaged character. It's like a backstab, only from the front. And with two more stabs.
Shadowstep Common Rogue 0 Return a friendly minion to your hand. It costs (2) less. Rogue dance troops will sometimes Shadowstep away at the end of a performance. Crowds love it.
Sudden Betrayal Common Rogue 2 Secret: When a minion attacks your hero, instead it attacks one of its neighbours. You thought he was your bro-bold, but turns out he's your foe-bold.
Blade Flurry Rare Rogue 4 Destroy your weapon and deal its damage to all enemy minions. "Look, it's not just about waving daggers around really fast. It's a lot more complicated than that." - Shan, Rogue Trainer
Counterfeit Coin Rare Rogue 0 Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. There is something funny about this coin… can't quite put my finger on it…
Envenom Weapon Rare Rogue 3 Give your weapon PoisonousLike Deadly Poison, but deadlier.
Headcrack Rare Rogue 3 Deal 2 damage to the enemy hero. Combo: Return this to your hand next turn. When all else fails, nothing beats a swift whack upside the head.
Journey Below Rare Rogue 1 Discover a Deathrattle card. Don't stop believing there's something below.
Lesser Onyx Spellstone Rare Rogue 5 Destroy 1 random enemy minion. (Play 3 Deathrattle cards to upgrade.) The trolls of old embraced the gift
A jewel of black for daggers swift
No party lasts who finds the stone
Those wielding it soon stand alone.
Mimic Pod Rare Rogue 3 Draw a card, then add a copy of it to your hand. Jinx!
Roll the Bones Rare Rogue 2 Draw a card. If it has Deathrattle, cast this again. Call it: Heads or Tailbone…
Thistle Tea Rare Rogue 6 Draw a card. Add 2 extra copies of it to your hand. Aren't Thistles prickly? Why would you drink them? I don't get Rogues.
Doomerang Epic Rogue 1 Throw your weapon at a minion. It deals its damage, then returns to your hand. Guaranteed to return your weapon directly to your hand! (Wear gloves. Thick ones.)
Evasion Epic Rogue 2 Secret: After your hero takes damage, become Immune this turn. Works on weapons, missiles, and taxes.
Preparation Epic Rogue 0 The next spell you cast this turn costs (3) less. "Be Prepared" - Rogue Motto
The Caverns Below Legendary Rogue 1 Quest: Play five minions with the same name. Reward: Crystal Core. Why can't it ever be The Taverns Below?

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Valeera was chosen to represent the rogue class partially in order to balance faction, race and gender representation across the cast of heroes. As a blood elf female, Valeera added diversity to the cast of characters, as opposed to options such as Mathias Shaw or Edwin VanCleef (human male, already represented by both Anduin and Uther), or Garona Halforcen (a female half-orc, making the fifth orc hero).[2][3][4]
  • During the game's early development, the rogue class was represented by Edwin VanCleef.[5]

Patch changes[edit | edit source]

  • Whispers of the Old Gods logo.png Patch (2016-07-12): Golden Priest, Rogue, and Neutral cards are now easier to tell apart. [The ribbon at the tops and bottoms of golden cards are now black for Rogue, and white for Priest.]
  • Alpha patch 2 (2013-08-12): Received some new hero artwork.
