Rummaging Kobold Reveal: Kobolds & Catacombs

Recommended Posts

A new epic Kobold minion has been uncovered.

Italian streamer JackTorrance90 made this reveal. Without further ado, here is Rummaging Kobold:

Screencap from the stream

It is hard to evaluate this card before actually seeing it in action, as is the case with most of the pre-expansion reveals. I'd expect players to experiment with this card during the first weeks of the new expansion.

The obvious first point to be made is Rummaging Kobold's synergy with the new Legendary weapons this expansion will bring. People are expecting Harrison Jones, Acidic Swamp Ooze and Gluttonous Ooze to be run a lot in the new meta and this card ensures that you get a second chance with your legendary weapon. What if your opponent doesn't run these tech cards, though? Some of the revealed legendary weapons do not lose durability, making Rummaging Kobold not that useful.

Apart from decks containing legendary weapons, this card can also be useful for the traditional weapon classes of Hearthstone. Paladin and Warrior look like they can benefit more from it, whereas Rogue is probably the weakest of the bunch given that Rummaging Kobold can return a Wicked Knife. Perhaps an interesting combination could be created with Rummaging Kobold and Doomerang.

We have already had another reveal today and we are expecting another three now. We'll return soon with another article; until then, you can check out the reveal schedule as well as our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.

I think this card will be very strong if it ends up being a control meta. Almost everyone would be playing some sort of weapon removal if that was the case, and the value that some of these legendary weapons have is enormous. I could honestly see Warrior, hunter, and paladin playing this even without a legendary weapon. It seems strong, but only in a control meta.

The real question is, if you use all the charges on a weapon, is that weapon "destroyed"?  Obviously works with oozes, and I assume it would work with reducing a weapons durability to 0, but I am not 100% sure.  Also, Atiesh is only a 3 mana weapon.  Have fun with that.  Overall, I am not sure how many legendary weapons will want this, the mage one seems the strongest, and it will be played in a tempo oriented sort of deck, and I don't know if you want to play such a low impact card + the legendary weapon a second time, especially when playing it once will probably be enough to seal the game, especially if it gets more then a single activation.  The druid legendary weapon only wants to be used once as well, since it takes so much work (5 turns) to get use out of it.  The rest are pretty unimpressive.  I could see this card in paladin and classes that run mediv.  Probably in nothing else though.

Yep. Grave Shambler gets buffed when you use up a weapon. When a weapon uses all durability, it is destroyed.
