Immune
Immune characters can't be damaged.

The immune effect from Bestial Wrath

Immune is an ability that prevents characters from receiving any damage, and prevents the opponent from specifically targeting them with any type of action. However, it does not prevent destroy, restore Health, or other non-damaging effects on Immune characters, which can still be affected by randomly or automatically targeted effects, including area of effect.

Notes[]

  • Immune effects are always temporary, and only offer immunity for the stated period or while the source is active: after this, the effect is removed.
    • Immune effects on a hero belong to that specific hero, not to the controlling player. For example, if Ice Block gives Immune to a hero that later that turn is replaced by Majordomo Executus's Deathrattle, the resulting hero will not have the Immune effect.[13]
  • Misdirection does not trigger if an Immune hero is the only available redirect target.[14] In addition, it is believed (with 99.2% confidence, i.e. 1/128 probability of being incorrect) that Misdirection cannot select an Immune character as the defender, even if it does trigger.[15]
  • As with Stealth, Taunt minions that are Immune have their Taunt ability temporarily suppressed, and can thus be bypassed.[16][17]
  • Immune effects will not prevent the game from ending automatically at the start of the 90th turn: for example, if both players have a Mal'Ganis in play and refuse to attack each other, the game will end in a draw at the beginning of the 90th turn.[18][19]
  • Although not explicitly stated in the card's text, Gorehowl has a triggered effect that grants a temporary Immune effect to the weapon itself, which protects it from Durability losses the same way Immune effects on characters protect them from damage. For additional information, see Gorehowl.

Trivia[]

  • If Immune effects cause a character that is capable of attack to have no valid targets to attack, clicking on them will produce a "You cannot play that without a target" message across the battlefield, and the "I can't play that" emote from the hero. The character will also not be highlighted green, despite their ability to attack.
  • As of Patch 4.1.0.10956, the only way to make an enemy minion Immune is to have Bestial Wrath stolen by a Spellbender,[20] or to have Bestial Wrath's or Stablemaster's target stolen by an enemy Sylvanas Windrunner.
