Deathrattle: Give a random friendly minion +1/+1.

Ok, Initiate. You need to settle down and do your job. In this case, that means die so someone else can get a minor buff.

Zealous Initiate is a common neutral minion card, from the Whispers of the Old Gods set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Zealous Initiate can be obtained through Whispers of the Old Gods card packs purchased online from the Battle.net shop, or through crafting.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Zealous Initiate 40 5
Golden Zealous Initiate 400 50

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The lower-cost version of Anubisath Sentinel; this card works well in Zoo decks, decks that rely on large numbers of low-cost minions, and efficient trades.

If played with a "sticky" minion (that needs to be attacked at least twice), like Argent Squire or Possessed Villager, that minion is very likely to receive the +1/+1 buff, which helps to gain control over the board early in the game.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Summon
The master hungers.
Attack
Feed him.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Zealous Initiate may retroactively be a k'thir, a new Old God-affiliated race introduced in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth.
