Prior Year of the Gryphon's rotation on March 30, 2021:
- Two copies of Assassinate were automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the rogue class.
- Two Golden copies of Assassinate were a reward for raising a rogue to levels 47 and 48.
Assassinate instantly destroys an enemy minion, no matter how durable it is. So it is best to keep it for a high health minion or a minion with important buffs or a Taunt in the way of dealing lethal damage. It is also effective against minions with high Attack since it removes the minion while avoiding taking damage.
While hard removal is a premium effect, this card's high cost and being just a spell makes it difficult to use in aggro or tempo decks. Vilespine Slayer or even Sap does a more efficient job in maintaining the board while moving a large minion out of the way.
- The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Heroes of Azeroth" series, depicting the spell Lobotomize. It depicts the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game and World of Warcraft Miniatures Game character Timmo Shadestep.
- If Scabbs is the rogue player's Hero, he will shout "Assassinate!" when casting this card..
