Strategy[]

While the Emperor Cobra's stats are nothing impressive, it possesses the Poisonous ability: any minion damaged by it is destroyed. Abilities like the shaman spell Ancestral Healing or the druid spell Mark of the Wild, or minions that give other minions taunt like Sunfury Protector, Houndmaster or Defender of Argus can give you a snake that will instantly kill any attacker. Even the mighty Deathwing is not safe from the Emperor Cobra. Using Emperor Cobra with Tundra Rhino allows for instant removal, unless the targeted minion has Divine Shield.

Lore[]

Emperor Cobras are level 75-76 serpent mobs found in central Sholazar Basin.
