Freeze
Frozen characters lose their next attack.

A Frozen minion

A Frozen hero

Freeze is a mechanic that marks a minion or hero as Frozen. Frozen characters miss their next possible attack. After this, the Frozen status is removed.

Freeze only prevents attacking. Frozen heroes can take all other actions as usual, including using their Hero Power and equipping weapons. Frozen characters will also still defend themselves if attacked. Silencing a Frozen character will remove the Frozen status (unofficially called Unfrozen).

Notes[]

As of Patch 22.4.0.131660:

  • During your turn, if your character hasn't attacked at least once yet while it can (or hasn't used up their attack(s)) and then has been Frozen, it will be Unfrozen at the end of your turn. This also applies to:
    • Minions with Rush but opponent has a minion to attack at the end of turn, or characters with Charge.[1][2]
    • Characters that can attack multiple times (usually with Windfury or Mega-Windfury) but haven't used up all of their possible attacks yet[3]
  • During your turn, if your character has attacked and then has been Frozen, it will be Unfrozen at the end of your next turn. This also applies to:
  • Can't attack effect and 0-attack attribute do not prevent the characters who have it from being Unfrozen.
    • For example: You summon an LegacyAncient Watcher and Freeze it afterwards. At the end of your next turn, it will be Unfrozen.
    • For example: You summon an Ancient Watcher. At your next turn, you Freeze it. At the end of that turn, it will be Unfrozen.
  • Freeze cannot stop forced attacks (United in StormwindLothar's effect, CoreIllidari Inquisitor's effect, Ashes of OutlandWarmaul Challenger's Battlecry,...).[5]
    • However, if they are forced-attacking and Frozen, they are counted as having used up their attack and cannot be Unfrozen until the end of turn when they are not forced-attacking.[5]
  • If your hero is Frozen and you play a hero card, your hero will be Unfrozen.
