Murloc is a minion type.

Murloc are best known for their swarming gameplay and board-wide synergy. Relatively weak in isolation, their low mana cost allows them to quickly flood the board, with their synergistic effects causing them to grow in strength as each new Murloc arrives. Murlocs are available to all classes, but have a special connection with the paladin and shaman classes.

Lore[]

Main article: Murloc art
Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
The murlocs are a bipedal, amphibious humanoid race residing along coastlines, lakeshores, and riverbeds. Murlocs possess bulbous bodies, large mouths lined with rows of sharp fangs, and slime-coated skin. Individuals range in coloration from turquoise to darkish grey, while their heights vary from 3-1/2 feet to 6 feet. Depending on the variety, murlocs may lean towards a closer resemblance to frogs or to fish; the iconic green murloc, for example, has coloration similar to the Cuban tree frog.
Murlocs tend to dwell in amply-populated coastal settlements, and it is unusual to find individuals wandering too far from their compatriots. Players looking to engage murlocs should be wary of their surroundings; the creatures often lurk out of sight beneath the surface of the water. This tendency, coupled with their large social aggro radius, can often lead to larger pulls.

Trivia[]

  • Murloc was a part of Patch 22.6.1.1.1.1, an April Fools 2022 prank, where all Murlocs would have Charge because "People have been asking why Old Murk-Eye has charge, so we're updating all other Murlocs for consistency."
