  • Lightspawn's Attack is always equal to its Health. Immediately after losing or gaining Health, the Lightspawn's Attack will be changed to match its Health.
  • This means that the Lightspawn's Attack cannot be increased directly, such as through  Dark Iron Dwarf's Battlecry, and  Bloodfury Potion. Such effects can still be applied to the Lightspawn, but will have no effect. However, any effect that alters its Health will alter its Attack accordingly.
  • Lightspawn is implemented as a very late priority aura. Because of its priority, regardless of order of play,  Dire Wolf Alpha will not give Lightspawn extra attack.[1]

"I am Light incarnate!" - Sol

Original to Hearthstone, the Lightspawn was added to World of Warcraft with Legion. The priest champion Sol appears to be a named Lightspawn, and a generic "Lightspawn" mob serves as its stand-in when viewed by other players. Lightspawns can also be summoned by Vial of Pure Light.

The Lightspawn appears to be a Light elemental. The Lightspawns in World of Warcraft are of the Elemental creature type, and Sol is marked as a "Holy Priest" character.
