Rumbling Elemental is a common shaman minion card, from the League of Explorers set.

How to get[]

Two copies of regular Rumbling Elemental are obtained by defeating Temple Escape, the third encounter in The League of Explorers's first wing, the Temple of Orsis.

As a Wild format card, both regular and golden versions of Rumbling Elemental can also be crafted for the following amounts:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Rumbling Elemental 40 5
Golden Rumbling Elemental 400 50


  • Brann Bronzebeard does not cause the Rumbling Elemental to deal damage twice when a card with a Battlecry is played, since Rumbling Elemental triggers from the minion itself being played, not from the activation of the Battlecry.
  • Rumbling Elemental triggers in the After Play Phase, which starts after all death processing following the Battlecry Phase. This means that if the consequences of a minion's Battlecry put a Rumbling Elemental into play/your control, such as by killing an enemy Deathlord, the Rumbling Elemental will then trigger from that Battlecry minion coming into play. Conversely, if a Battlecry causes the Rumbling Elemental to leave play/your control (such as due to death), it will not trigger from that Battlecry minion coming into play.[1] The played minion must also still be alive.[2]
  • Playing Lord Jaraxxus does not trigger Rumbling Elemental.[3]


Shamans has plenty of cards with Battlecries, like Fire Elemental or Tuskarr Totemic, that can work well with this card. Rumbling Elemental can be a powerful component in a Battlecry deck, along with Brann Bronzebeard.

With the release of Journey to Un'Goro, Rumbling Elemental has been given the Elemental minion type. As many Elementals have Battlecry effects, it's worth considering including Rumbling Elemental in an Elemental Shaman deck in Wild.
