Previous availability[]

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

  • Two copies of Oasis Snapjaw were automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the druid class.
  • Two Golden copies of Oasis Snapjaw were a reward for raising a druid to levels 51 and 52.




Oasis Snapjaw's main advantage its unusually high Health for its cost. Thus, it has synergy with cards that give Taunt like LegacyAncestral Healing, LegacyMark of the Wild, LegacyHoundmaster, LegacyDefender of Argus or LegacySunfury Protector. It can also be valuable for priests, whose LegacyLesser Heal can repeatedly heal the Snapjaw back to full Health with small risk of it being destroyed.

It also works well in combination with LegacyInner Fire and LegacyCrazed Alchemist, converting its Health into Attack. LegacyDivine Spirit is also very useful with this minion, especially if combined with LegacyInner Fire or a taunt effect.

For a hunter going second, using CoreThe Coin to get this out on turn three with a LegacyHoundmaster in your hand makes for a very strong 4/9 Taunt minion on turn four.

However, if you don't plan to buff the minion, Journey to Un'GoroStegodon is a better alternative, trading just a single point of Health for Taunt, providing an immediate use for the high health pool.


"Snapjaw" is a common name for the regular, spiked tortoise/turtle found all across Azeroth. World of Warcraft features several types of Snapjaw mobs, including the Oasis Snapjaw, which was the first turtle mob added to the game, and the only one prior to the Burning Crusade expansion.

Turtles in World of Warcraft are similar in appearance, but much greater in size than their real-life counterparts. They can be found both on land, and in water. In Warcraft, turtles, sea turtles, and tortoises are often essentially the same, only differentiated by environment. Turtles are feared by the naga, who consider them bad luck and give them a wide berth on the shores of Azshara.


  • Oasis Snapjaw's golden card art was some of the first in the game to feature a major animation of the character itself.
  • The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "War of the Elements" series, for the card Donatello.
