Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion's reasonably beefy stats, while average for its cost, allow it to pose a reasonable threat to your opponent if they lack removal, or trade into a couple of weaker enemy minions or a stronger one before granting the effect of its Deathrattle. Best played while you already have a weapon equipped, preferably at full Durability, just in case your opponent has some form of removal to use on Squidface. If you don't have any stronger weapons, even a 3/2 Wicked Knife can prove helpful in killing enemy minions or directly attacking the opponent, chipping away at their Health.

Like other Deathrattle minions, this minion makes a good combination with Unearthed Raptor, though due to the required Mana for preparation will likely have to be spread between two turns at least.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
My mother does love this face.
Attack
Show respect.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Southsea Squidface resembles Davy Jones, the pirate character from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise who has been cursed to have a cephalopod-like head with numerous tentacles.
  • Southsea Squidface is actually a female character, as her voiceline in the gamefiles is VO_OG_267_Female_Faceless.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Southsea Squidface appears to be a faceless one who has taken up the life of a pirate on the South Seas. Along with N'Zoth's First Mate, this is the first known mention of n'raqi pirates.

From Wowpedia:

The Southsea Freebooters, a small fleet of pirates, have no landward home — at least none that authorities have found — but are a common sight along the coast of the Barrens and Tanaris, and have even recently appeared in the flooded Thousand Needles. Their connection with the Northsea Freebooters is unclear, but the Northsea Freebooters seem to have a severe disliking of the Southsea ones.
The Southsea Freebooters have several bases located along the southeastern coasts of Kalimdor.
