They are uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Previous availability[]

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

  • Two copies of Grimscale Oracle were automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the warlock class.
  • Two Golden copies of Grimscale Oracle were a reward for raising a warlock to levels 53 and 54.


Grimscale Oracle acts as a cheap board-wide buff, granting a large damage boost for a very low cost if you have a board filled with murlocs. Due to its very low health, it's recommended to play this after you already have a few murlocs on the board. While fragile, it can get out of hand if it can be protected and buffed by other minions like Coldlight Seer and Gentle Megasaur.


Grimscale Oracles are Grimscale tribe murlocs found in the blood elf starting area Eversong Woods, along the Golden Strand. Killing and obtaining loot from them is the objective of two quests in the area.
