Spirit of Lucentbark

Notes[]

  • Lucentbark's effect does not require you to restore 5 Health in a single turn or to restore 5 Health to any specific character, only to restore a total of 5 Health while it's dormant.
  • In-game, Spirit of Lucentbark's card text includes a counter informing the player how much more Health they need to restore before its Deathrattle effect can trigger; for example, if the player has yet to restore any Health, "(5 left!)" will be displayed at the end of the card text.

Strategy[]

While an okay minion on its own, Lucentbark works incredibly well with healing effects, turning what is normally a slow play into tempo by summoning a 4/8 with Taunt for free. Some good sources of healing for Druid are Rise of ShadowsCrystal Power, LegacyEarthen Ring Farseer, and LegacyAncient of Lore.

If you're not running consistent healing effects, you're better off playing LegacyIronbark Protector, which has +4 Attack over Lucentbark, or Journey to Un'GoroPrimordial Drake (in Wild), which has a useful Battlecry.

Lucentbark is even more potent if he can be copied, as they will all be revived once the healing threshold is met. LegacyFaceless Manipulator, The Boomsday ProjectGloop Sprayer, and The Boomsday ProjectFlobbidinous Floop are good additions to decks that run Lucentbark.

Lore[]

Lucentbark is unique to Hearthstone. He is a wise, powerful, and resolute LegacyAncient of Lore[1] hailing from Crystalsong Forest. While he may look grumpy, the small woodland creatures that inhabit his forest (and even his own branches at times) always brings a smile to his face. He is quite friendly toward Dalaran and so immediately comes to its aid to drive out the invaders.[2]

Trivia[]

  • Lucentbark started off as a card simply titled "Tree" that went dormant and returned to life after the controlling player healed a certain amount. Team 5 initially thought that Applebough—a treant who serves as a fruit vendor in World of Warcraft's Dalaran–would be a perfect identity for "Tree". However, this design didn't last long, since adding Treant synergy to the card might lead to unexpected issues. With Applebough being the only druid-adjacent character in the World of Warcraft version of Dalaran, the team had to get creative and eventually decided that since Northrend's Crystalsong Forest is a beautiful blend of nature and magic, druids would pull from there to aid Dalaran. This is when the idea for the character of Lucentbark took shape.[2]
