As a powerful healing effect, Antique Healbot can be useful for stalling aggro decks, allowing the opponent to exhaust their impetus and buying the play time to find a counter. It is an excellent target for return effects such as Ancient Brewmaster, Time Rewinder or Shadowstep. Primarily useful for its Battlecry with very poor stats for its cost, this minion is an excellent target for Recombobulator, with a good chance of gaining a significantly stronger minion.

It may be a poor choice for Arena, due to healing not being a preferred strategy, with the exception of Warlock and Rogue which heavily rely on using Health as a resource.

Beware that summoning this minion with an Auchenai Soulpriest on your board will result in 8 damage being dealt to your hero.

As of Descent of Dragons, Amber Watcher is a superior replacement to this minion exclusive to paladins, since it has decent stats for its cost and is even more useful in both combat and tribe synergy.

  • In MMORPG circles, a "healbot" is a slang term for a cleric, monk, or priest-class character whose sole task in a group is to heal the other members non-stop, a job supposedly simple enough that even a bot could do it.
  • Some players have noted that "Antique Healbot" is a homophone of "anti-kill bot", speculating this as the origin of the card's name. However, Ben Brode has stated that this connection is unintentional.[1]
