Notes[edit | edit source]
- Boss always tries to increase a hero power's damage by not killing minions with it.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Avozu has the weakest hero power among the bosses of 7th level. Even though it's likely to kill minions, overall it doesn't allow full board control. The consequences can be avoided or reduced by First Aid Kit, Captured Flag, Titanic Ring or trades with enemy minions. It's also fully neutralized by Cloak of Invisibility passive, which will enable defeating Avozu even with a swarm deck of weak minions. Aggro decks without Cloak of Invisibility can still easily lose in this battle due to the advantage in boss' starting mana and the presence of higher-cost minions in his deck.
Normal deck is budget and slow deathrattle hunter with a small number of swarm and big beasts to bolster on the table. Despite the fact that there are only two deathrattle activators (Feign Death) and there is almost no synergy between minions, it is better not to leave the enemy board and carefully trade with any minion that Avozu plays, since it is difficult to safely rush into face due to the large amount of health at this level.
Heroic deck is a good likeness of Midrange Hunter with several synergies between the beasts, so it is still desirable to have a good board to immediately eliminate the boss' minions and not let him fight back by the hero power. Therefore, in addition to the Cloak of Invisibily and First Aid Kit, Glyph of Warding and Rocket Backpacks will perform well here.

Lore[edit | edit source]
Avozu is original to Hearthstone. He is a Tol'vir.
- The tol'vir are a race of feline humanoids found in Uldum. They were originally stone constructs created by the titans to maintain lore repositories and machinery surrounding that area, as well as the city of Ulduar. They possess feline lower bodies and heads as well as human torsos, and are divided into three distinct tribes: the Ramkahen, the Neferset and the Orsis. Like many other titan-forged, the tol'vir succumbed to the Curse of Flesh, though the Neferset later regained their stone forms due to a pact with Siamat.
