Previous availability[edit | edit source]
Prior Year of the Gryphon's rotation on March 30, 2021:
- Two copies of Timber Wolf were automatically included in all players' collections upon unlocking the hunter class.
- Two Golden copies of Timber Wolf were a reward for raising a hunter to levels 23 and 26.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Timber Wolf lacks presence by itself, but can be a powerful force when used in conjunction with other Beasts. It is most commonly played alongside Unleash the Hounds, granting all Hounds the extra punch they may need to kill enemy minions or simply deal more damage to the opponent.
Timber Wolf is also useful as a cheap Beast, working well with Starving Buzzard.
Timber Wolf's low Health makes it a risky play unless the player can make immediate use of its effects. It is generally held in hand until other Beasts are ready to attack, at which point it is played to buff their Attack. This prevents it from being immediately removed, and means that even if the player removes it next turn, it will still have been of use. Timber Wolf is especially vulnerable against mages, and to a lesser extent rogues, demon hunters and druids, due to their hero powers.
Lore[edit | edit source]
- Common throughout Azeroth, timber wolves are pack hunters excelling in the persistent chase of their prey. While many humans fear timber wolves as servants of darkness and associate them with orcs, night elves embrace the rightful place timber wolves have in the natural order. Timber wolves move and hunt primarily at night.

- The artwork for this card comes from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game "Scourgewar" series, for the card Fang.
