Known bugs[edit]

  • Previously, there was a bug that prevented anyone not having logged in before March 2020 from getting two regular Shield of Galakronds for free.
    • Chadd Nervig believed it was fixed at an unknown date. Apparently, anyone who just created a new account after that date can get them for free.[1]
      • However, anyone who had suffered from this bug still cannot get them for free, even now.

Notes[edit]

Strategy[edit]

This card is a good tool to add to a deck that is lacking some Invoke cards for a full cycle. It is also comparable in stats to other Taunt minions for the same mana such as Booty Bay Bodyguard, Fen Creeper, and Rotten Applebaum. Each class uses Shield of Galakrond slightly differently, although the baseline 4/5 body is solid.

Quotes[edit]

Summon
I will act as your scale, dragonlord.
Attack
His will be done!

Trivia[edit]

  • Starting from December 10 2019 and for the next 90 days, two non-golden copies of Shield of Galakrond were automatically given to the player the first time they logged into Hearthstone.[2] After this, Shield of Galakrond was instead awarded when opening your first Descent of Dragons pack, similar to Beckoner of Evil.
