Not sure why. Dinomancy was restricted to beasts and only gave +2/+2.
Obelisk's Eye on the other hand, even ignoring the +3/+3 buff is already a better Priest hero power, healing for 3 health instead of 2. So, right out of the gate, you have a hero power that's better than one that's already pretty damn good. Then you add +3/+3 and it's insane. If you can manage to heal an injured minion, it's effectively a potential +3/+6 swing. Include the fact that it doesn't have a tribal restriction and you have a hero power that isn't even remotely in the same ballpark as Dinomancy.
They're similar effects, and while I agree that it's much better, it's also a lot slower. Dinomancy also got an insane amount of hype and you know how that turned out.
This is a quest reward, as opposed to a normal card you can just play whenever
The question remains for me... Velen doubles damage AND healing... So if you have him out you heal for 6, if you use auchenai do you do 12 damage? If so that's not bad at all. If it works that way velen plus this plus regenerate is 24 damage (11 mana though)
Cool card, but I'm getting Dinomancy flashbacks.
This is gonna be nerfed in a month
Mark my words
Why are people Downvoting? If the minion is damaged , this is potentially +3/+6
The card is really OP.
do I read it the right way, does your minion get +3/3 only when health is restored? if so I dont really see play for this card due to unnaceptable starting hand vs aggro decks
It also gives +3/3 if hp is full
Health doesn't have to be restored. It will always give it +3 +3. Basically you heal for 3 AND give the minion +3/+3, if the minion is full health then you only give the minion +3/+3.
First it restores 3 hp, then gives +3/+3
This says "target a minion", so it works at full health, too. The question was good though; the effect you're thinking about either says "heal a minion" or "if the target is still not at full life, then ...".
WATCH THIS SPACE...............this is going to be the next best thing in this expansion :)
Circle of Healing
Welcome back my friend... Welcome back !
This hero power makes Recurring Villain a monster
Not sure if this was answered or not, but what do you think happens if you try to use Obelisk's Eye on an ENEMY minion with Auchenai Soulpriest? Does the minion die for the damage, or get saved by the +3/+3 buff?
Who cares when you can frostbolt his face every turn
Yeah it seems weird that it's "minion" and not "friendly minion"
I guess it has emergency Shadow Word: Death synergy
You are healing first, then you giving a buff. I think minion will die before the buff
