Destroy a Demon. Restore #5 Health to your hero.

This is the reason that Demons never really become friends with Warlocks.

See this card on Hearthpwn

Sacrificial Pact is a warlock spell card, from the Basic set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Two copies of Sacrificial Pact are a reward for raising a warlock to level 8.

Two Golden copies of Sacrificial Pact are a reward for raising a warlock to levels 15 and 20.

Sacrificial Pact is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This spell has two steps:
    • First, it sets the target minion pending destroy;
    • Then, it heals your hero, queuing and resolving triggers.[1]
  • Sacrificial Pact will no longer be offered for selection in Arena, since the 15th of September 2016.[2] However, it is still obtainable in Arena matches through random effects, such as Spellslinger.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Sacrificial Pact gives Warlocks healing, a valuable resource to Warlocks, for the price of a demon. Ideally, it should target a puny 1/1 imp or a dying minion, such as one affected by Power Overwhelming. Although healing is useful, it's cumbersome to use and its lack of influence on the board makes it a poor card to include in most decks.

Because this card can also be used on your opponent's Demon, it can function as a tech card in a Warlock mirror match. This includes Lord Jaraxxus after he replaces the opponent's hero, resulting in an instant win to the user. You can also use it to counter Mirror Entity; no matter how strong the Demon you're about to play is, you can simply destroy the copy of your Demon with the Sacrificial Pact.

It should be noted that this ability may be used on the neutral Demons: Imp Master's Imps, Street Trickster, Illidan Stormrage, Prince Malchezaar.

Can also be combined with Dreadsteed to restore 5 Health without any sacrifice.

Lore[edit | edit source]

In World of Warcraft, Sacrificial Pact is a talented ability that allows warlocks to sacrifice a portion of their minion's health to create a temporary shield for themselves.

The unusual relationship between warlocks and their summoned demons is well-documented.

From Wowpedia:

Warlocks command the obedience of mighty demons, summoning and dismissing them at will, using them as they see fit and sacrificing them the moment it serves the warlock's interests. Even the mighty infernals bow before the will of the warlock.
