Kathrena Winterwisp is a legendary hunter minion card, from the Kobolds & Catacombs set.

How to get[]

Kathrena Winterwisp can be obtained by:

  • Opening card packs
    Kobolds & Catacombs
    Wild
  • Crafting regular version for 1600 dustdust
  • Crafting golden version for 3200 dustdust

Strategy[]

Journal.pngPlease add any available information to this section.

Primarily, Kathrena can be seen as an effective way to thin out your deck and summon powerful minions onto the battlefield immediately.

As Kathrena summons Beasts from your deck, she is optimally used in a Hunter deck which only runs powerful, expensive Beasts such as Swamp King Dred and Savannah Highmane to maximize value out of her effects. Charged Devilsaur gets a minor boost from being recruited in that it avoids its Battlecry, meaning it can attack the enemy hero on the same turn. Its deathrattle also has synergy with Hunter's Deathrattle-activated cards, such as Play Dead and Terrorscale Stalker, as well as N'Zoth, the Corruptor.

Lore[]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Kathrena Winterwisp is a night elf quest giver at the Grove of the Ancients in Darkshore.
She later becomes a garrison follower.

In Hearthstone lore, Kathrena is working alongside Dragoncaller Alanna, Marin the Fox, and Master Oakheart in the catacombs.[1] She is "basically [the] complete opposite" of Alanna, whom she tends to drive a little crazy.[2]

Trivia[]

  • During development, Team 5 originally had two possible designs for Kathrena: one being the Recruit effect she launched with, and the other being to set both players to a specific amount of Mana Crystals. The team went with the former as they felt that it fit better with the rest of the cards in Kobolds & Catacombs. However, they still liked the unused design, which was eventually reused for Mojomaster Zihi a year later in Rastakhan's Rumble.[3]
