Tundra rhinos are often mistaken for kodos. Or am I mistaken?

Other versions[edit | edit source]

How to get[edit | edit source]

Two copies of regular and golden Tundra Rhino are automatically given after the player completes the Ranked's New player experience system, unlocking Wild and Classic format.

They are uncraftable and cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Previous availability[edit | edit source]

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

  • Two copies of Tundra Rhino were a reward for raising a hunter to level 8.
  • Two Golden copies of Tundra Rhino were a reward for raising a hunter to levels 43 and 44.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If a friendly minion can only attack because it has temporary Charge from Tundra Rhino, the Tundra Rhino does not have to survive until the actual combat happens (for example, if it dies to Explosive Trap, the combat will not be cancelled).[1]
  • Tundra Rhino's ongoing effect also gives the Tundra Rhino Charge.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Use Tundra Rhino to deal quick damage to your opponent's hero or minions. Granting Charge to all your Beasts is a great way to bypass the exhaustion after a minion is summoned, allowing it to immediately jump into battle and deal damage. Most effective in combination with Beasts that summon other Beasts as Deathrattle, such as Savannah Highmane and Kindly Grandmother. Play it with Scavenging Hyena to gain more advantage from trading your Beasts. Also very powerful in conjunction with Animal Companion and Call of the Wild.

Note that Tundra Rhino's ongoing effect only grants Charge while the Rhino is alive; if it dies, all affected minions will immediately lose the Charge buff. It is therefore advisable to attack with Tundra Rhino last, in case of the death or removal of the Tundra Rhino through damage or triggers such as Freezing Trap.

When playing against a Tundra Rhino, it's most advisable to remove it as soon as possible, to prevent more powerful and expensive Beasts from gaining Charge.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The card art for Tundra Rhino depicts a wooly white rhino. These rhinos appear in World of Warcraft as a level 40 epic mount, but their origin is from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game.
