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


How to getEdit

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


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. It 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. Furthermore, it is a great target for priest spells such as Extra Arms or Velen's Chosen.


From Wowpedia:

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