Previous availability[]

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

  • Two copies of Hammer of Wrath were automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the paladin class.
  • Two Golden copies of Hammer of Wrath were a reward for raising a paladin to levels 32 and 34.


  • This spell has two steps:
    • First, it damages its target, queuing and resolving triggers;
    • Then, it draws a card, queuing and resolving triggers.[1]


Hammer of Wrath is one of few single-target removal spells available to this class. It's similar to the druid's Starfire or the rogue's Shiv in that all three deal some amount of damage to a minion or hero while drawing the user a card. As such, its most efficient use is the removal of an enemy minion with exactly 3 health or the removal of a problematic minion when one is incapable of attacking it directly (such as when an enemy controls a minion with Taunt).


"You cannot run from the divine hand of justice."

Hammer of Wrath is a paladin ability from World of Warcraft that instantly deals direct Holy damage to the target. Only usable on targets under 20% health, it is designed as an execute ability for use on low health enemies.
