Leaders in Warcraft Rumble are the cornerstone of a deck and playstyle that players put together to take into battle. Each deck has to have a Leader, but can only have one leader, and they all provide different opportunities for synergy when drafting a playstyle.
When a player first starts playing Warcraft Rumble, there will be a choice of three different leaders presented for the player to choose one to start with on building their first deck. Many players don’t know this at the time, but this choice is actually different for each player at random, and not the same three choices for everyone. Don’t stress over this decision too much, as you will be able to unlock more leaders and have more of these choices very soon within the first few days of playing.
This Leader Tier List is designed to be for what will be the most consistent and viable deck-producing Leaders that will be simple and intuitive enough for beginners to play effectively. Every Leader can be effective if played well in a deck that synergizes well with them, so players should try each one they unlock to find what play style works best for them.
#1 – Tirion Fordring
He is a formidable tank that can also support allied troops in battle by providing consistent heals to help sustain and build up a large push. There aren’t any crazy mechanics to worry about or anything, he fits in almost any playstyle and will perform very consistently in both PvE and PvP.
#2 – Baron Rivendare
Fast and mobile frontline Leader who also allows players to flood the map with Skeletons which will generate passive map control. Because of this, Baron is one of the most popular Leaders in PvP during the early days of Warcraft Rumble.
#3 – Grommash Hellscream
Bloodlust is an awesome trait buff because it provides a 33% bonus to both movement speed and attack speed. So Grommash providing this constantly as a passive to allies that are near him allows for very effective and efficient Gold trades against your opponents.
#4 – Hogger
Designed around cycling through your deck to play him as many times as possible in a match, because his stats will scale heavily based on how many times he is played, means that the playstyle is very straightforward and he will provide a lot of value only costing 4 Gold once he’s been played a few times.
#5 – Bloodmage Thalnos
Synergizes very well with a deck that brings 2 Spells, which can really scale up his level to start getting some really efficient trades and be a big nuisance to deal with. He also has a talent that will give him Lifesteal providing a good synergy to help give time to scale his level.
#6 – Old Murk-Eye
Will require a bit of getting used to because players will want to save up Gold, play Old Murk-Eye first, then dump the rest of their Gold, which will give them a really fun mass spam of Murloc Tidehunters all over the map.
#7 – Rend Blackhand
A flying Leader that will work great for players that like to play from the skies with flying troops. He makes them cheaper and able to get efficient trades. He has two forms, so even when he is killed from his flying version, he will fight on as a ground tank.
#8 – Sneed
Really strong at taking space and conquering enemy towers, and when he does, will help snowball an economic advantage by generating more Gold. Will require a bit of positioning and planning to gain that advantage, but will definitely pay off big when done properly.
#9 – Cairne Bloodhoof
Very straightforward and beefy frontline tank that will allow players to really build up a big push and take objectives. One of the lowest big impact Leaders, but very consistent and easy to use.
#10 – Sylvanas Windrunner
She is a bit on the expensive side, but does a lot of damage, and spawns a Banshee on death, which can steal an enemy mini and turn it to your side of the battle. A lot of boom or bust potential, can either be mostly wasted or completely swing the tide of a battle.
#11 – Maiev Shadowsong
Allows for some insanely impactful plays being the only Unbound Leader in Warcraft Rumble. Does require a few cycles of the deck to lower the cost and become efficient, so will not have as consistent of an impact as other Leaders, but can make more impactful plays.
#12 – Charlga Razorflank
Extremely boom or bust. Charlga isn’t necessarily bad, but the mechanic of all minis in the deck costing the same Gold and rotating through while constantly changing, means this Leader will not be very intuitive for players trying to learn the game. This is definitely the Leader with the craziest and most unique mechanic in terms of changing how the game is played.
#13 – General Drakkisath
Helps the player crank out tons of Elemental damage but won’t be near as consistent for new players as other Leader options.
#14 – Jaina Proudmoore
Actually a pretty decent ranged damage dealer for only 3 cost, but way too blah and a bonus that requires a specific timing for a specific style of mini, means she is just not as good as impactful as other Leaders.
