Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Shade of Naxxramas, while initially weak, has game-winning potential. Stealth allows the Shade to attack on its own terms, and its ever-growing statistics poses a serious threat to opponents. Due to its resistance to most removals, buffs from classes like the Druid, Shaman or Paladin can use the Shade as a target. Whether it be a Savage Roar, Windfury or Blessed Champion, this minion can end the game in a single turn if left unchecked.

AoE removal is the bane of the Shade, especially when first played as a measly 2 Health; a simple Consecration or Holy Nova can neutralize the Shade. Random target effects such as Deadly Shot and Stampeding Kodo can also affect it regardless of its Stealth.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Naxxramas is ours.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Shade of Naxxramas is a mob found in the Naxxramas raid in World of Warcraft.

From Wowpedia:

Shades are disembodied spirits and are similar to ghosts in that they are the spectral remains of a once-living person. These often restless spirits are mostly found in the Plaguelands, other undead-infested areas, and the village surrounding the mysterious tower of Karazhan. Because they do not have a real body, some shades are immune to physical damage.

History[edit | edit source]

Shade of Naxxramas was originally designed as a 4 Mana 1/1 minion. [1]
