There is a mistake in the noble sacrifice section .. You said the defender will always which is wrong .. If u have redemption with noble sacrifice you will indeed have the defender as a card.. Only if the hero or the minion attack you or deal un fatal blow on one of ur minions..

I am unsure what you even mean, your wording is pretty incomprehensible. 

 

If you have Noble Sacrifice and redemption, when the opponent attacks with any card, then it will trigger the Nobel Sacrifice, causing the attacking minion/player to deal damage to that instead.  If you have Redemption as well, the Noble Defender will come back with 1 health.

Hey.

 

While you are right, the guide is also not mistaken. Redemption triggers when the minion dies, so the statement that the Defender will always die is correct. The Defender will always die. It has 1 health, and no attack can trigger it and do less than 1 damage. The fact that the defender can come back through Redemption has no bearing on the fact that he does die :)

Defenders spawned from Noble Sacrifice can live under one condition - there's a card in play that buffs minion health.

 

Examples:

Stormwind Champion gives all your minions +1/+1, meaning any Defender that spawns from Noble Sacrifice is going to be a 3/2.

Sword Of Justice buffs minions you summon with +1/+1, meaning if you have a SoJ equipped when Noble Sacrifice is triggered the Defender will be buffed to 3/2 BEFORE being hit.

 

If you have both a Stormwind Champion AND a Sword Of Justice active, your Defender will spawn as a 4/3. Pretty meaty.

That's a very good point! I'll update the guide accordingly :)

in the Redemption section, every mention of where "Redemption" should be is instead refered to as Repentance.

The section on Repentance references killing off an enemy with Fireblast - I'm fairly sure this is impossible unless you manage to play both paladin and mage at the same time! biggrin.png

Haha! That's right! I fixed it now. Thanks!

Just a note on Redemption - while it's probably obvious to many, you can use it in a more offensive manner as it enables you to suicide one of your minions and get it back straight away.

 

While there are dare-to-dream scenarios with legendary minions with powerful deathrattles (imagine something like Cairne - you cast redemption, trade Cairne with something, then get a Baine and a new Cairne for your troubles, who will eventually spawn a new Baine if not silenced), there are simpler scenarios aswell. For example, it's arena and you're going first. On turn 3, your opponent cast a Shattered Sun Cleric buffing their Dire Wolf Alpha. On turn 4, you can cast your Wolf Rider and Redemption, bash into the Dire Wolf, then bash into the Cleric, clearing the board for subsequent turns. If you have a nice turn 5 play to come, like a Silver Hand Knight or an Azure Drake, all the better.

 

I salivate at the thought of pulling it off with Argent Commander. Nom nom.

The repentence paragraph mentions using it in conjunction to fireblast. I can't see how that's possible.

Patch 1.0.0.4944 (2014-03-11) means that all secrets now will only activate on the opponent's turn.

Eye for an eye does not proc while hitting a minion with your weapon anymore and Jax wasn't up to date. You can't use it in a more offensive manner anymore.

Not as important but another way that the Defender can live is if a minion that attacks has a chance of attacking another minion, it has a chance of not attacking the defender i.e. Ogre Brute attacks your 7/2 Dr. Boom, triggers Noble Sacrifice, attacks the Defender, then redirects his attack back to the Dr. Boom.

Another way for the noble sacrifice to live is one of my favorite paladin combos...

 

Turn 1 noble sac

turn1 Something like lepper gnome

Turn 2 Juggler

Turn 2 lepper gnome attacks juggler, triggers noble sac with triggers jugglers 1 dam shot, which kills attacking minion.

"Paladins have access to 5 Secrets. All Paladin Secrets have the same cost of 1 Mana Crystal. We will list the Secrets before going into more details below."

In the guide it's written that there are 5 secrets, but there are 6.

7 secrets actually with the release of LoE, but nice catch.

In case of Sacred trial being activated - does the minion gets to perform its battlecry? Or is it destroyed before it reaches battlefield?

One more question - in case of multiple minions dying simultaneously which one is first brought to life by Redemption?
I assume the one that was played first. (I think this info should be added to the article)

And yeah,
"Paladins have access to 5 Secrets. All Paladin Secrets have the same cost of 1 Mana Crystal. We will list the Secrets before going into more details below."
There are actually 7 secrets as positiv2 has already mentioned.

      YouTuber, Disguised Toast, is never far from the front of Hearthstone science, and his latest video is spectacular. This video investigates the strange interactions caused by Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle.
      Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle seems simple enough, it reads: Shuffle this minion into your opponent's deck. However, when tested by Disguised Toast, it turns out that even this simple looking text can result in rather odd results. The ordering of other Deathrattles on the board, and effects by other cards on Deathrattles is what makes it so unpredictable. Take a look for yourself!
      The fact your deck displays as full, no matter how many cards left, is probably the strangest interaction of all. Even Toast doesn't  attempt to describe how that one happens.

      Blizzard have updated the breakdown of the amount each gang's classes are being played.
      On their Gadgetzan page, there is an infographic showing who controls the town of Gadgetzan today. The percentages are worked out by how often each class is being used. Even with the huge amount of Pirate Warrior on ladder at the moment, the Grimy Goons are unable to control the city! That honour goes, currently, to the Kabal. With people having success with Reno Warlock AND Reno Priest, it will be fun to see if they hold that position in the coming days.

      So I got a lot of jade cards for druid and neutral in the 15-20 packs I've opened, and I wanted to make a jade druid deck, right? But I'm poor, so I look up "Jade Druid Budget Deck". I find one on this site with the following deck list:
       
      2x Innervate 2x Jade Idol MSG 2x Living Roots TGT 2x Raven Idol LoE 2x Wild Growth 2x Wrath 2x Feral Rage TOG 2x Jade Blossom MSG 2x Swipe 2x Nourish 2x Jade Behemoth MSG 2x Jade Spirit MSG 2x Azure Drake 2x Gadgetzan Auctioneer 2x Arcane Giant Kara But I don't have Raven Idol. Or nourish, though I can just craft that since it's in classic. So can anyone suggest an option for replacing the raven idols? I don't want to get all of League of Explorers just to play with it for a month then watch it turn to dust so I can craft other cards for decks in standard. I have one branch, but that's it. I was thinking maybe 1 jeweled scarab, though I know that card is frowned upon for reasons I've never been made aware of, for flexibility, and a loot hoarder for pure draw.
