  • Prophet Velen increases the healing of and the damage dealt by your Hero Powers and spells, with only a few exceptions:
  • Multiple instances of Prophet Velen stack.
  • Being a multiplicative bonus, Prophet Velen is applied after additive bonuses like Spell Damage and The Grand TournamentFallen Hero.
  • Prophet Velen doubles the healing of and the damage dealt by your Hero Powers and eligible spells. More precisely:
    • Spells that deal a certain amount of damage randomly split among all characters with a given characteristic (LegacyArcane Missiles, Whispers of the Old GodsSpreading Madness, LegacyAvenging Wrath, The League of ExplorersTimepiece of Horror) have their total damage doubled by Prophet Velen: the spell will thus shoot an increased number of missiles, but each one will still deal 1 damage.
    • All other spells and Hero Powers that heal or deal damage to one or more characters have the healing or damage dealt to each target doubled. This includes single-target spells (for example, with Prophet Velen LegacyHoly Light will restore 12 Health), area of effect spells (for example, with Prophet Velen LegacySwipe will do 8 damage to its target and 2 damage to all other enemies), spells that damage "multiple targets" (such as LegacyCleave and LegacyExplosive Shot) or that do a base amount of damage repeated a variable number of times (like Goblins vs GnomesBouncing Blade and Mean Streets of GadgetzanGreater Arcane Missiles), and all Hero Powers that restore Health or deal damage (for example, with Prophet Velen LegacyLife Tap will deal 4 damage before drawing a card).
  • Prophet Velen will double the damage of Lifesteal spells (like Saviors of UldumPenance) and hero powers, then double the healing restored from the Lifesteal effect, resulting in double damage and quadruple heal.
  • For additional details, see Damage#Advanced rules and Healing#Advanced rules.
  • Prophet Velen dynamically modifies the numbers printed on the text of eligible Hero Powers and spell cards in your hand accordingly.
Example: with a Prophet Velen in play, LegacyLesser Heal will read "Restore *4* Health.".
Example: if you have Prophet Velen, LegacyAzure Drake and LegacyAuchenai Soulpriest in play, a The Grand TournamentFlash Heal in your hand will display the text "Restore *10* Health." but it will instead deal 12 damage to its target when cast, since Auchenai Soulpriest turned it into a damaging effect which then benefits from Azure Drake's Spell Damage bonus.


Prophet Velen can dramatically increase the priest's effectiveness in the late-game. His passive affects the priest's spells as well as their Hero Power. Lifesteal spells (i.e. Knights of the Frozen ThroneSpirit Lash) doubles the healing on top of the double damage, resulting in a huge health swing.

This bonus works with all Hero Powers, including the damage of doubling the damage of LegacySteady Shot, LegacyFireblast, LegacyLife Tap, and Blackrock MountainDIE, INSECT!, as well as the Hero Powers granted by The Grand TournamentJusticar Trueheart, Knights of the Frozen ThroneShadowreaper Anduin, LegacyShadowform and The Grand TournamentCharged Hammer. Note that the doubled damage on Life Tap is usually a bad thing.

This card should be considered to have a soft taunt. Your enemy will go to great lengths to kill Velen due to the power he brings in the late game. Be prepared to protect him with taunt minions, healing or divine shields.

His high mana cost makes it difficult to fully utilize his effect. Cards that can potentially summon him for cheaper cost like Knights of the Frozen ThroneEternal Servitude lets Velen have a greater effect.




Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Velen has been the leader of the draenei people since their flight from Argus 13,000 years before the first orcish invasion of Azeroth. Known by his people as the Prophet, he has been granted the gift of the Sight, and — aided by the Light — rejected offers of dark power from Sargeras and has guided his people as they fled from, and later fought against, the Burning Legion and their former eredar brethren. He is first among the draenei and is the arch-nemesis (formerly best friend) of Kil'jaeden.
Following the draenei's flight to Azeroth, they made a new home on the Azuremyst Isles and, sensing great courage in the Alliance, Velen and his followers pledged themselves to this noble faction. The strengthened Alliance then helped the draenei reclaim their former holdings from the Legion. Most recently, Velen used the heart of the naaru M'uru to sanctify the blood elves' tainted Sunwell, transforming the sacred fount into a source of holy and arcane energies.
Although the Legion's forces in Outland have been greatly diminished and the demonic invasion of Azeroth has been driven back, Velen remains fearful of an upcoming war between light and shadow.
