Inquisitor Dakrel is a generally easy encounter, as the first Boss of Trial by Felfire. Despite his Hero Power, there aren't any Deathrattle effects that particularly stand out. Maintaining board presence is key to victory.

Aranna's Hero Power draws the Discovered card of choice from the deck. Use it wisely to get the card you need in whatever the situation calls for. A general rule of thumb to follow here is that Aranna's decks revolve around a good amount of Beast synergy (eg. Scavenger's Ingenuity, Scrap Shot, etc.) and Secrets. (Blackjack Stunner, Shadowjeweler Hanar, etc.)


Before encounter

Illidan Stormage
But in the dust through that dark gate? Born of rust, a demon waits...


Aranna Starseeker
Who... who's there?
Inquisitor Dakrel
My name is irrelevant…only the Rusted Legion matters!

Emote Response

Inquisitor Dakrel
You will succumb to the rust... in time…


Inquisitor Dakrel
Just give in... a bit of scrap won't hurt you.
So? Are you coming with me?
Would a mechanical arm not suit you? Telescopic eyes?

Hero Power

Inquisitor Dakrel
Build something new...
Rust to rust...
These parts will serve the Rusted One.
This one has joined our cause…

Bamboozle reveals
Hmm? Oh. Oops.
Fan of Knives
Impressive! I wonder - could we mechanize that?
Wait! Where are you going?


Inquisitor Dakrel
We will find you... we will... destroy you...
Aranna Starseeker
That was no ordinary demon... What did he say? The "Rusted Legion"?
Inquisitor Dakrel


Inquisitor Dakrel is original to Hearthstone.

Inquisitors are a race of demons in service of the Burning Legion. They're horrific fel casters who see through their floating eyes and specialize in dark pacts. When killed, their body becomes one of their eyes.
