  • Forked Lightning can be cast and will function if there is only one enemy minion on the board. The enemy minion takes 2 damage.
  • Forked Lightning deals damage to both affected minions before queuing and resolving triggers.


Can be very useful if the opponent has a lot of low health minions, and you don't need the extra mana next turn.


  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Blood of Gladiators" series, for the card Fork Lightning.
  • As of Patch, multi-target cards are eligible to be played even if there is only one viable target on the board. Previously, multi-target cards were ineligible to be played if there were less than two viable targets.
  • This card is almost identical to Cleave but with cost reduced and Overload effect.
