    Seems really strong in the late game and with some of the new cards, is already getting support.  AND the upgraded hero power is objectively much better and not simply an exchange for a different hero power.  

     

    Of what we've seen of the quests so far, this is the best one IMO.

    Here are just some of my current decks: Highlander Thief Rogue, Highlander Obelisk Priest

    2-Mana Restore 3 Health. If you targeted a Minion, also give it +3/+3

    You could fulfil the condition with a single Circle of Healing or divine hymn in theory, especially if you include cards like Injured blademaster, high-health taunts and Wild pyromancer. The quest reward is really strong and flexible.

     

    I could definitely see midrange priest become a real deck thanks to this quest.

     

    Edit: I just realised Hench-Clan Shadequill would also contribute to completing the quest. Seems like a pretty sweet deal to play that card all of a sudden.

    Interesting card for zoo and inner fire priest.

    [edit] Question - so if I am reading it correctly, the HP gives +3/+6, right? It restores 3 health AND grants a minion +3/+3. That's very strong.

    Yeah, pretty much. Long as the minion is damaged it’s up to a 6 health gain on it.

    Really the only downside I see to running this card is that it effectively shuts you out of using Auchenai, but that hasn’t really been too popular lately anyways.0

    Who needs consistency when you could have fun?

    Something that seems good... For Priest ! It looks pretty good, with tons of flexibility and the reward is a sort of better Justicar Trueheart's upgrade so it doesn't completly "change" the playstyle.

    I really hope that something like a sort of control/tempo deck will show up, using strong minion like Injured Blademaster to both put pressure and build up healing for the quest, then starting snowballing with the HP buff during the mid game.

    Looks really good. Neferset Ritualist keeps looking better.

    Sorry, I must have missed that, but Why can you not use Auchenai? Even if the damage on minions is cancelled out, the three damage buff should still apply. And it could serve as a 3 dmg ping face.

    Seems like a great card as it strictly upgrades your heropower. In lategame the buff isnt as valuable but still the hp is strong enough that it could see play as a standalone card. Ability to pump that out every turn is really strong and it works well with reborn minions both before and after the quest has been completed.

    Once the quest is completed, the fact of restoring 3 health and giving +3/+3 every turn for 2 mana is extremely powerful. Idk if it will be viable but the reward is really good

    Because of this quest, priest players have a reason to heal their opponent's faces and emote. "The light shall burn you" and "Greetings" sound intimidating now more than ever.

    Because you need to Heal in order to complete the Quest. With Auchenai, all your healing is turned into damage. Not only that, but once you have upgraded your Hero Power, once you use it it effectively becomes a 2 mana +3 Atk on friendly minions with more than 3 health

    This seems insane in wild considering Greater Healing Potion almost single handedly completes the quest.  RIP Surrender to Madness; We hardly knew ye.

    Will this buff a minion with full health? From the wording it sounds like it would, but if it doesn't then that significantly reduces its power.

    It will. It doesn't matter, if you restore any health to it (although that would count as a bonus). The HP states that you only need to target A minion, in order to give it +3/+3.

    I think it's going to be difficult to have enough damage to heal before the game gets too late making the reward for this less relevant. This card feels better in wild in my opinion, with just more ways to AoE damage minions.

    Except there's no deck in wild that would gain much from this.

     

    Card seems good for standard though.

    It‘s allmost impossible that this won’t see play. 

    1. The reward is completly insane. A buff between +3/+3 and +3/+6 is on blessing of Kings level. For two mana. As a heropower. I don‘t even know why we discuss that. When priest ever manages to get the bord, the game is over. 

    2. Healing 15 Health is a natural thing for priests. Reborn minions can be healed btw. Sure, it‘s not done by turn 5 but this would be way to overpowered. You want to play the long game with this anyways. 

    Winner winner chicken dinner
