Previous availability[]

Prior Year of the Gryphon's rotation on March 30, 2021:

  • Two copies of Execute were automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the warrior class.
  • Two Golden copies of Execute were a reward for raising a warrior to levels 47 and 48.


Execute is a strong removal card, and although it is conditional the warrior has multiple ways of damaging a target for Execute. Methods of doing so include Inner Rage, Cruel Taskmaster, Slam and Whirlwind.


"Showing weakness to a Warrior is a death sentence."

Execute is a warrior melee attack from World of Warcraft. Only usable at low health, the ability deals a large amount of damage, and is perfect for finishing off weakened opponents.

Execute is also seen in the Heroes of Azeroth deck of the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game



Execute, full art

Patch changes[]

Commentary: The Warrior class has access to a large amount of removal spells, and while we want to continue providing Warrior players with powerful removal options, Execute stands out as one that has proven to be too efficient in too many situations. We’re increasing the cost of Execute from 1 to 2 Mana in order to keep the card as an option closer in power level to other existing and future removal tools.
  • Unknown alpha patch: Mana cost reduced to 1, down from 2.[1]
