They are uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Previous availability[edit | edit source]

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

  • Two copies of Hand of Protection were automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the paladin class.
  • Two Golden copies of Hand of Protection were a reward for raising a paladin to levels 23 and 26.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Hand of Protection is a relatively cheap way to save a minion from potential death or force a favorable trade. Divine Shield can be placed on a friendly or even an enemy minion to shield it from a single attack. This card can be used even if a minion has lost their own Divine Shield, and is useful in preparation for a Blood Knight.

Lore[edit | edit source]
