How to get
|Golden Darkshire Alchemist||400||50|
- Just a pinch of ichor.
- A new recipe.
Darkshire Alchemist is a very versatile card that can find a place in nearly any Priest deck. The heal for 5 can help you survive against aggro decks, and can also combo with Auchenai Soulpriest or Embrace the Shadow to deal 5 damage to an enemy. While this would generally be used to remove an enemy minion, the damage can also function as burst in a class which normally has none. Alternatively, the heal can help keep one of your big minions alive.
After years of defending their town against the terrors of Duskwood, the grim defenders of Darkshire are no strangers to horror or madness. This alchemist appears to be experimenting with the alchemical potential of the strange new powers of the Old Gods, perhaps seeking a way to defend her home against the coming darkness.
- Darkshire is a once-quaint little woodland village located in Duskwood, but it has fallen on literally dark times. The surrounding forests have been filled with an evil malaise that cloaks the land in constant darkness. The walking dead choke the graveyards, and foul creatures known as worgen have overrun many of the outlying farmsteads. Even worse, Stormwind has all but abandoned the village and the surrounding area, as most of the Stormwind army is currently off fighting on the Horde/Alliance front. This has left the stubborn people of Duskwood little choice but to defend themselves.
- The small town now numbers a scant 3,500 people, a great deal of them refugees from Raven Hill. Lord Ello Ebonlocke is the elected mayor of this town. His daughter, Commander Althea Ebonlocke, runs the Night Watch, a local militia that works to keep the roads free and the creeping darkness back for as long as possible. They strike against the undead and worgen that plague the land. The people of Duskwood are a jumpy and suspicious lot, but they are desperate for any aid they can get against the evil that now surrounds their homes.
- This card's flavor text continues the "funnel cake" running gag, started with Refreshment Vendor in The Grand Tournament and continued in every expansion since.
