Flavor text

Druids who fought too long in Northrend were easily seduced by Ragnaros; a mug of hot chocolate was generally all it took.

Combined[]

Druid of the Flame

Notes[]

  • As with all transformations, this minion's change into either Firecat or Fire Hawk Form is permanent and cannot be undone by Silences or being returned to the hand.

Strategy[]

Players should use the transformation based on the situation:

  • The 2/5 form is useful to:
    • defeat an opponent's 2-health minion;
    • setting up a durable minion before playing Goblins vs GnomesDruid of the Fang;
    • avoid cards that destroy 5 Attack minions;
    • survive effects that can deal 2-4 damage.
  • The 5/2 form is useful for:
    • discouraging the opponent from summoning a 5 Health minion, or threatening one in play;
    • avoiding cards that destroy or steal 2 Attack minions;
    • making an aggressive push when the player has board control, particularly with Taunt protection.

While not a hard rule, on an empty board, the 2/5 is almost always favored. Whispers of the Old GodsFandral Staghelm or Saviors of UldumOssirian Tear transform this minion into a 3-cost 5/5, which are very effective stats.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
The Druids of the Flame are a sect of druids loyal to LegacyRagnaros the Firelord, led by his new majordomo Fandral Staghelm. These vile creatures have turned their backs on LegacyCenarius' teachings and now worship the Fire Lord, Ragnaros. Twisted by his insane power, they desire nothing more than to bury everything in ash. They operate mainly in the Firelands. During the quest The Nordrassil Summit, Cosmetics - PNG logo.pngThrall explicitly refers to them as members of the Twilight's Hammer, and Fandral claims to answer to the Twilight Prophet.

Trivia[]

  • Since this minion's Choose One effect normally replaces it with one of the two Beast forms, its regular attack and death sounds are only heard if the minion enters play through a summon or put into battlefield effect (such as LegacyAlarm-o-Bot), causing it to skip the transformation.
  • Despite not being the first transforming Choose One minion, Druid of the Flame's phrasing ultimately set the standard for all the others, after a long period of inconsistent wording.
    • Druid of the Flame was once the only self-modifying Choose One minion out of five that described the end result of the effect instead of the relative stat gains. This is now standard on all self-transforming Choose One minions.
    • Druid of the Flame was the first minion to specifically say it transforms, despite the earlier LegacyDruid of the Claw also transforming.
    • Druid of the Claw and The Grand TournamentDruid of the Saber were rephrased to match the wording style of this card with the release of Journey to Un'Goro, establishing a consistent standard to contrast the transforming Choose One minions from the self-enchanting ones.
