Illidan Stormrage

Illidan Stormrage

Master Hero — Melee damage 5/35 Night Elf Demon Demonhunter Traitor — Play Cost: 11

Traitor Hero Required

At the start of your turn, you may put a Traitor ally card from your collection into play.

Illidan starts the game in your deck and can be played. He enters a party face up with the same attachments, counters, damage, and ready/exhausted state as that party’s previous hero, and then that previous hero is removed from the game. None of this uses the chain. He can't be flipped or turned face down, and a hero removed from the game this way can’t leave that RFG zone. Any links targeting that previous hero now target Illidan, and any modifiers to that previous hero (like a Gouge, for example) now apply to Illidan within their durations.

Even though Illidan has no faction or class, you can still play faction- and class-stamped cards while he’s in your party because deckbuilding rules don’t apply during a game. However, a card like Blastershot Launcher that looks for an icon on your current hero loses its Hunter power while Illidan is in your party.
