Everyone's favorite undead horse rider.

Among the leaders you can use in Warcraft Rumble, Baron Rivendare excels as a tanky unit with elemental attacks and can move relatively quickly across the map. If you want to make him your go-to leader, here’s the best Baron build you should try in Warcraft Rumble.

All Traits, Talents, and Leader Ability for Baron in Warcraft Rumble

As mentioned, Baron Rivendare functions primarily as a high-health tank leader in Warcraft Rumble. Additionally, Baron is described in-game as an Undead one-target melee damage dealer with a 50% Physical damage reduction trait and can dish out elemental attacks to deal with Armored opponents. And thanks to his bony steed, he’s a very mobile unit.

Unfortunately, Baron is weak against squad units. As a roundabout way to cover his weakness, his Leader Ability allows him to summon Skeletons at buildings you control periodically. The following are the Talents you can select for Baron:

  • Chill Of The Grave: Summon Skeletal Mages instead of Warriors.
  • Death Pact: Periodically sacrifice a nearby Skeleton to be Healed.
  • Skeletal Frenzy: Nearby allied Skeletons gain Bloodlust. 

Best Warcraft Rumble Baron Build

With Baron Rivendare as your leader in Warcraft Rumble, your deck will have two fixed Undead slots, one Unbound slot, and three bottom slots between Elemental, Cycle, Fast, Squad, Flying, Siege, Undead, and Spell. Tank and Ranged slots are excluded from Baron decks, but despite that, this leader is far more versatile than others in Warcraft Rumble.

In fact, the best Warcraft Rumble Baron build focuses on having strong versatility with a deck using Necromancer, Ghoul, Quilboar, Gargoyle, Blizzard, and Harpies. Necromancer and Baron or Quilboar can pressure opponents, and if on the back foot, Harpies and Blizzard could defend one lane while your Gargoyle soaks up Tower damage elsewhere.

The primary function of this Baron build is to pressure the opponent rather than play things safe, so it’s a bit aggressive but can be devastating in the hands of a player who knows how to work this deck well. You can try this build in any game mode, so feel free to test the waters and make changes if you want to get creative.
