Strategy[]

If this minion survives its first turn on the board, its Windfury and relatively high Health can enable it to remove two cheap enemy minions and still survive for your enemy to deal with. However, its low Attack make this minion less valuable for face strategies or for dealing with big opposing minions.

In the right board state, this minion can function as a "Soft Taunt" that your opponent has to deal with to prevent you from gaining board advantage. However, its high mana cost means that, by the time this minion can be played, your opponent probably has removal cards or board presence to easily deal with this minion.

Fantastic Firebird is a strictly better card, having both a cheaper cost and the useful Elemental subtype.

Quotes[]

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
The hozen (sometimes known as hozu) are a monkey-like race that lives in Pandaria. Short-lived and immature, they are a passionate and playful race, mischievous pranksters that "act like a group of 14 year old boys running around together in the jungle." The hozen are native to Pandaria, and are found all over the continent.
Mostly a wild and independent race, hostile to any who wander into their hunting grounds, one tribe of forest hozen were befriended by the Horde after adventurers earned their grudging respect. Equipped with machine guns and weapons from the Horde, this hozen tribe were trained and recruited to join the battle against the Alliance and their new allies.

Many hozen are practitioners of martial arts, such as those used by the pandaren. Notable examples include Cloudbender Kobo, "The Monkey Monk", Master Boom Boom, "The Dynamite Monkey Monk", and two of the students of Tian Monastery: Ken-Ken and Zhi-Zhi. This particular hozen is ostensibly a master of "Grook-Fu", a martial arts style not previously known to exist in the Warcraft universe, but which is likely a uniquely hozen creation; "grook" is a hozen verb meaning "kill" or "hit".

One piece of hozen hai-pu states:

Art of Hozen-fu:
Grab, stab, and ookin bite it.
Repeat until win.

Trivia[]

  • Grook Fu Master may have previously been named Eternal Oathkeeper.[1]
  • "Grook" and "grooking" are Hozen for killing, fighting or hitting. Grook-Fu may then translate as "The art of fighting".[2]
  • "Slickies" is the hozen word for fish, one of their primary food sources, and also the insulting name used for their age-old enemies, the aquatic jinyu.[2]
