Peon is a common neutral minion card, from the Forged in the Barrens set.

How to get[edit | edit source]

Regular Peon can be obtained through Forged in the Barrens card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Peon 40 5

Two copies of golden Peon are obtained by reaching level 6 in the Forged in the Barrens' Rewards Track. Golden Peon is uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion has vanilla River Crocolisk stats without the beast tag, with the possibility of gaining a single spell if damaged without being killed. Typically, 1 random spell is not worth a slot in a constructed deck. Peon is an unfortunately subpar choice, even in Arena.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Peons are the laborers, workers and lumberjacks of Horde and the orcish clans. They are typically unfit for battle, cowardly and lazy but their work is simply indispensable for the other orcs to focus on battle. This is why the importance of the peon is recognized in the holiday Peon Day. Physically most peons are permanently bent from years of labor and trudge expressionlessly in their duty, a large sack slouched over malformed shoulders that are broader than any soldier's.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Peon's quotes are all quoted verbatim from it's incarnation in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.
