Darius Crowley Reveal: The Witchwood

Recommended Posts


Is Darius Crowley the most powerful card we've seen from The Witchwood?


A powerful Warrior Legendary has been spoiled by Chinese Hearthstone streamer Gouzei:

It took roughly 2 seconds for me to decide that this card is amazing. The majority of Hearthstone boards have a minion on it with 4 or less health. Against these boards, you'll get to kill one of those minions while leaving behind a 6 power body that demands an immediate answer. Your opponent can't just let Darius sit around and take over the game, which means that Darius will likely force a lot of awkward trades and generate many 2 or 3 for 1s. Darius seems like a big upgrade to The Boogeymonster.

Which decks do you think Darius will fit into best? Let us know what you think about the card in the comments, and check out our Witchwood Hub for more information about the Hearthstone's upcoming expansion.

Looks not bad and it suits warrior in general but I am not sure if it survives a turn it's great otherwise you might do better by playing something else. But it's too early to tell.

I guess it would have to cost more mana or have weaker stats as an Epic card but for a legend it looks not impressive.

Seems like it would fit in a tempo warrior deck.  But will that be a thing?  The lack of a strong early weapon to actually swing tempo seems problematic.  He plays poorly into cubelock, but well into most mid range decks.  I think if tempo warrior is a thing, he will be a part of it.  But I don't think he is nearly strong enough to carry the archtype.  Plus there are quite a few situations where he can be mediocre.  At a 4/4 he is guaranteed to trade down, and the minion has to have 3 attack or less.  In a lot of board states he can then take a 3 damage aoe or can be traded up into, still 2 for 1s, but may not be a huge tempo swing.  Still a worgen greaser that kills a 3 drop is solid.


It should also be noted that he is capable of winning a game by himself as well.

Hmm, it is definitly a good thing that Warrior gets some cards, that are good on their own.

The reason I always liked Warrior the least is, that so many cards of this class need to be combined with others to do anything at all.

If it kills a 4 attack minion, does it die or does the +2/+2 trigger first?

But anyway, let’s say it’s 5-mana deal 4dmg summon 6/3. Similar to Blackwing Corruptor with some pros (can get more +2/+2s, doesn’t need a dragon in hand) and some cons (can’t bypass taunts/poison, has to kill to gain stats).

Corruptor was pretty much an auto-include in dragon priest, but I wouldn’t say it carried it in the way, say, drak op did at times. This seems similar, it’ll be a strong card in a deck that wants it, but I don’t see it being so defining that people will scoff when someone asks ‘replacement for darius?’

Watch for 2 more hours and you’ll receive another one! Twitch has updated how drops work on their end, and this is Hearthstone’s first time utilizing Twitch Drops since these changes were put into place. Here is what you need to know:
      You’ll now be able to see your watch time progress towards any given drop. You will no longer receive drop rewards automatically. You must instead claim the drop on the channel you’re watching or in the Drops Inventory menu on Twitch within the first 24 hours of earning it.  You will need to claim your first Twitch Drop reward BEFORE you can earn progress towards a second. Twitch users can now earn rewards before linking their Battle.net account to Twitch. Rewards will expire 7 days after they’ve been claimed if a Battle.net account has not been linked. After you’ve claimed a reward on Twitch, please make sure you’re logging into the region you’d like to receive the drop(s) on, as the first region you log into will be where we deliver your packs. It can take up to ~30 minutes to receive your reward(s) in game after claiming. You must link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts before you can receive a drop.
      Link Your Battle.net & Twitch Accounts
      You'll need to link your Twitch.tv and Battle.net accounts to receive Twitch Drops. Here's how:
      Log in or create an account on Twitch.tv. Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen. Navigate to the Connections tab of the Settings menu. Find the Battle.net section, then follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect. When connecting accounts, be sure that you're currently logged into the Battle.net account on which you'd like to receive your rewards. More Just Around the Corner
