Death's Bite is a common warrior weapon card, from the Naxxramas set.

How to get[]

Two copies of regular Death's Bite are obtained by completing the warrior Class Challenge in Curse of Naxxramas.

As a Wild format card, both regular and golden versions of Death's Bite can also be crafted for the following amounts:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Death's Bite 40 5
Golden Death's Bite 400 50


  • Note that the Deathrattle will be triggered whenever the weapon is destroyed, whether this is from running out of Durability, being replaced by another weapon, or being destroyed by effects like Acidic Swamp Ooze or Harrison Jones.


Offering two powerful attacks and a highly versatile Deathrattle at a decent manacost, Death's Bite is a cornerstone in many Wild format Warrior decks. 4 damage is enough to destroy most early to mid-game minions outright. As a bonus the second strike is effectively 5 damage (if used to attack a minion), thanks to the Deathrattle.

Death's Bite's Deathrattle can be used in the same way as Whirlwind, triggering Enrage effects and on-damage effects such as Armorsmith and Frothing Berserker. A very powerful combo is to summon Grommash Hellscream on the same turn you use up Death's Bite, allowing it to deal massive damage without warning.


Death's Bite is a two-handed axe that drops from Kel'Thuzad in the 10-man version of Naxxramas.
