Dart Trap is a hunter spell card, from the League of Explorers set.

How to get[]

Two copies of regular Dart Trap are obtained by completing the hunter Class Challenge in The League of Explorers, unlocked upon completing the adventure's third wing, The Ruined City.

As a Wild format card, both regular and golden versions of Dart Trap can also be crafted for the following amounts:

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Dart Trap 40 5
Golden Dart Trap 400 50


Example: If the opponent uses Reinforce, the Dart Trap will have a chance to target the summoned Silver Hand Recruit.
Example: A minion mortally wounded by Dart Trap can still trigger its Inspire effect.[2]


As the game goes on, it generally becomes more likely for the opponent to trigger this Secret, due to increasing mana as well as depleted hands, making Hero Power use more likely. Be aware that control decks such as Handlock and Control Warrior may activate this Secret early on with no minions on the board. Inspire decks will activate this readily, but more likely with useful minions on the board.


Dart Trap is original to Hearthstone.

The dart trap appears to be guarding the way to the Golden Monkey.

Patch changes[]

  • One Night in Karazhan logo full2.png Patch (2016-09-15): Dart Trap will no longer be offered for selection in Arena.[4] However, until it left Standard, it was still obtainable in Arena matches through random effects (such as Spellslinger).
  • Whispers of the Old Gods logo.png Patch (2016-04-24): Now reads "After an opposing Hero Power is used..." instead of "When an opposing Hero Power is used...". The function appears to be unchanged.
  • The League of Explorers logo.png Patch (2015-11-10): Added.
