Previous availability[]

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

  • Two copies of Sightless Watcher were automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the Demon Hunter class.
  • Two Golden copies of Sightless Watcher were a reward for raising a Demon Hunter to levels 42 and 44.

Known bugs[]

  • Sometimes, Sightless Watcher does not offer the third choice, due to it being another copy of itself and conflict with Discover's new self-exception rule.[citation needed]

Strategy[]

The turn Sightless Watcher is played, it's effectively a LegacyBloodfen Raptor. However, it allows you to set up your next draw, giving you the best of three options to fill your mana curve. In a sense, it's a LegacyTracking that doesn't discard the other options and comes with a 3/2 Demon, but also is much slower.

Sightless Watcher is great for setting up Outcast cards, ensuring they're the next card if you have the mana to play them, or guaranteeing you'll draw something else if you know you won't be able to play it next turn.

This minion can also help fetch specific cards. If you're against an aggressive deck and you know you'll need a board clear soon, you can ensure your next card is something like LegacyChaos Nova or LegacySoul Cleave. If you're looking for a finisher, Sightless Watcher can grab an LegacyInner Demon. It's also good for helping you get key cards on curve like an Ashes of OutlandImprisoned Antaen or prevent key cards from being drawn, like your spells in a Kobolds & CatacombsSpiteful Summoner deck.

Beware of cards with Shuffle into deck effect, such as Descent of DragonsBad Luck Albatross. When any card is shuffled into your deck, your deck is also randomly shuffled, effectively countering the Battlecry which you have used before. For instance, if there is a Bad Luck Albatross in your opponent's board, remember to destroy it before you play Sightless Watcher.

Lore[]

Sightless Watcher is an observer who has recently become a demon hunter. While most demon hunters have to sacrifice both of their eyes, this observer had to sacrifice all seven. On the upside, he also got six warglaives.[1]

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Observers (or floating eyes) are an intelligent race of floating eyeball squids native to the Great Dark Beyond.

A mob named Sightless Watcher appears in World of Warcraft, but it's an inquisitor rather than an observer.
