This spell shoots 8 missiles, each one dealing 1 damage to a randomly selected enemy character:

  • Each missile is resolved (queuing and resolving triggered effects, such as that of  Acolyte of Pain) before the next one is shot.
  • As with all random effects, the missiles can hit any enemy, including Immune targets (which will however suffer no damage), Stealthed minions and the enemy hero.
  • Characters which have been mortally wounded by earlier missiles or destroyed by triggered effects like  Acidmaw will not be selected as targets for subsequent missiles (thus preventing missiles from dealing 'overkill' damage to targets that have already been destroyed by earlier missiles).
  • Bonuses from Spell Damage and  Prophet Velen will increase the total damage of this spell, not the damage dealt by each missile: for example, with Spell Damage +2 this spell will shoot 2 extra missiles, each one still dealing just 1 damage.


Avenging Wrath originated in World of Warcraft as a paladin ability. It grants +20% damage and healing for 20 seconds and visually shows golden wings and an ambient glow on the paladin. While this card's name is taken from that ability, the effects themselves do not seem to have any connection.
