Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This minion's triggered effect activates when the controlling player targets it with a spell.[1] It will not activate from being targeted by an enemy spell.[2]
  • Random target or AoE spells will not activate it. Multi-target spells will only work if they specifically target the Sorcerer.
  • Like all spell-triggered effects, the Dragonkin Sorcerer will trigger as the spell is cast, before it takes effect. This means that secrets Counterspell and Spellbender will not prevent the Sorcerer from being triggered.[3] It also means that effects such as Divine Spirit and Reversing Switch will be applied after the Sorcerer's stats are buffed, and that the Sorcerer will not trigger from a hostile Shadow Madness.[4]
  • When targeted by a friendly Shadow Word: Pain, this minion's attack will increase to 4, out of range of Shadow Word: Pain's effect, but will still be destroyed.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

With average stats for a 4-drop, Dragonkin Sorcerer performs best in classes that have multiple buff spells, such as priest, paladin or druid. The continued stat growth makes this minion particularly favourable for trading and maintaining board advantage, although it is susceptible to hard removal.

Limitless power!

Lore[edit | edit source]

In Blackrock Mountain[edit | edit source]

Dragonkin” refers to all the draconic races who aren’t full dragons, including the drakonids, or dragon hybrids. No one is quite sure how they came to be, but since dragons usually don’t mind meddling with mortals, it’s a safe bet that muddled mortal is a primary ingredient. These powerful and devoted spawn of the Black Dragonflight are Nefarian’s lieutenants within Blackrock Spire. Some of them thrive on magical forces, and if you’re not averse to sharing a little magical juice, you’ll be richly rewarded.[5]

In World of Warcraft[edit | edit source]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Dragonkin are all creatures descended from and including dragons. Dragonkin sometimes refers specifically to a type of creature closely related to a dragon, but usually lacking wings or full dragon abilities, powers, and spells. Nearly all dragonkin belong to one of the main or lesser dragonflights.
The term dragonkin has been used to refer to a category that seemingly includes both dragonspawn and drakonids. Some dragonspawn are known as "dragonkin", like the Elder Dragonkin and the Twilight Dragonkin. Maxnar the Ashmaw, a drakonid, is described as "one of the dragonkin, half-man, half-dragon." The dragonkin originate when dragons empower mortal servants, changing them into something halfway. This process does not have to be willing. They are separate races from the dragon race. They became dragonspawn and drakonid thanks to the dragons they served (via intentional alteration or via "unintended side effect of hanging out with dragons").
