This spell shoots 9 missiles, each one dealing 1 damage to a randomly selected 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 character, including friendly minions, Immune targets (which will however suffer no damage), Stealthed minions and both heroes.
  • 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.

Lore[edit | edit source]

This spell spreads the maddening whispers of the Old God Yogg-Saron.

Yogg-Saron is just CRAZY for madness, and the insidious power of its whispers easily takes mortal minds one step beyond. Of course, every good (bad?) Warlock knows that if you want to make it through the day, you’ve got to embrace a little trousers-on-head craziness. Who wouldn’t cast a spell like this and say, “Welcome to the house of fun!”[1]
