Twilight Whelp is a common priest minion card, from the Blackrock Mountain set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Two copies of regular Twilight Whelp are obtained by completing the priest Class Challenge in Blackrock Mountain, unlocked upon completing the Blackrock Spire wing.

As a Wild format card, both regular and golden versions of Twilight Whelp can also be crafted for the following amounts:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Twilight Whelp 40 5
Golden Twilight Whelp 400 50

Strategy[edit | edit source]

A strong early card as long as the priest has a Dragon in their hand. A good early game option for Dragon decks. As a Dragon it can itself be used to trigger other Dragon-related cards like Blackwing Technician.

Can be used as a replacement for Zombie Chow in a Dragon deck without Auchenai Soulpriest, or in addition to Zombie Chow in order to provide a much stronger early game than Chows alone.

In Arena its value will vary based on the number of Dragons in your deck.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Twilight Whelp can be found in the Obsidian Sanctum. They are spawned from the eggs of Tenebron when she is engaged.
