Rebuke is a level 27 Protection and Retribution paladin interrupt ability. It interrupts the target's spellcasting and prevents any spell in that school from being cast for 4 seconds.


  • Rebuke is not affected by the global cooldown.
  • Rebuke can be very useful when playing against casters. See Tips and tactics for information on using interrupts.


Rebuke is a common paladin spell in the The Witchwood expansion for Hearthstone. The flavor text reads: "When one buke just isn’t enough."
