Battlecry: Deal 3 damage.
He can never take a bath. Ewww.
Possibly the most powerful free minion in the game, Fire Elemental worths well over 6 mana on its own.
A shaman player is prone to play Overload cards on turn 4, rather than turn 5, so that he can play Fire Elemental as soon as possible in a game. Should you encounter any aggressive turn 4 Overload card played, your foe is possibly setting up for a Fire Elemental play.
it might be the best free minion in the game, but fiery winaxe is the best free card in the game
Most powerful free minion? Maybe. Water Elemental is another good candidate for that title.
Water Elemental is very strong, but it's not even close to being as good as Fire Elemental. I will say that Water Elemental is better against Control and maybe Patron Warrior, since they have few 3-health minions for the battlecry to kill and freezing the weapon is a Warrior's nightmare, but against any other class or deck Fire Elemental beats it.
Considering 3 damage worth 2 mana, Fire Elemental is a 6/5 for 4 mana, better then the mighty Yeti
3 damage is 2 mana look at frost bolt or dark bomb actually dark bomb wasn't in the game yet but frost bolt was
Fire Elemental x 2 are a reward for raising a shaman to level 10.
Golden Fire Elemental is a reward for raising a shaman to levels 49 and 50.
