Lore[edit | edit source]

Dragon whelps are a commonly seen mob in World of Warcraft. Both sources of Whelps in Hearthstone (as well as their artwork) imply that they are members of the black dragonflight, but whelps of all colors are known in World of Warcraft.

From Wowpedia:

Dragon whelp (aka dragon whelplings, dragonlings, or broodlings) are the smallest members of the dragonkin species. They are the youngest and weakest variation of dragons adventurers face. In most cases however, where there are whelps, their larger cousins are close by.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Wee Whelp is an easy fight and can be handled by simply going face with some classes. However, the most optimal way to deal with it is by board control. The Wee Whelp has a buff deck, with minions getting stronger by other cards. This can easily overwhelm you. To win against the whelp is to drop minions on the board, and trade or go face. Should you hold the board, its hero power will only slow you down.
