Lore[edit | edit source]
- The Staff of Antonidas is an ornate wooden staff formerly wielded by Archmage Antonidas. He gifted it to his most promising apprentice, Lady Jaina Proudmoore.
- In the aftermath of Lei Shen's defeat, Jaina tasked Alliance champions to charge the Staff of Antonidas with the remains of the Thunder King's power. After its transformation, the staff was renamed to the Storm-Stave of Antonidas. Jaina claimed that when the time was right, she would use the staff to bring the walls of Orgrimmar crashing down around Garrosh Hellscream's head, but no such thing is known to have happened.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
As can be expected from its name, it has the effect of Archmage Antonidas and generates Fireballs. It has a key advantage in that it is not present on the board and thus as the two bosses do not have weapon removal, makes the effect longer lasting. Additionally, the durability is not reduced when a spell is cast, and thus this card is very useful for taking down Aethas's high amount of HP.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Assault on Icecrown Citadel" series, for the card Staff of Antonidas.
