Lorekeeper Polkelt is a legendary neutral minion card, from the Scholomance Academy set.

How to get

Lorekeeper Polkelt can be obtained through Scholomance Academy card packs, through crafting, or as an Arena reward.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Lorekeeper Polkelt 1600 400
Golden Lorekeeper Polkelt 3200 1600

Notes

  • Cards that reduce its cost will be ordered base on its base cost. For example, Mana Giant will be sorted as it is 8 Mana and Molten Giant will be sorted as its 20 Mana.
  • If there are multiple cards that are the same cost, it will be sorted randomly in the deck.

Strategy

A great card to be able to draw your powerful minions in your deck more reliably instead of drawing low cost cards late in the game.

In Wild, using Lorekeeper Polkelt with Holy Wrath in hand to be able to do up to 25 damage to the enemy hero with drawn cards like Shirvallah, the Tiger and Molten Giant especially even better on curve or be able to draw Aviana, Kun, or your other combo pieces more reliably.

Lore

In World of Warcraft, Lorekeeper Polkelt is a level 43 elite zombie mini-boss found in the Scholomance.

This card art depicts a Hearthstone's unique human version of Polkelt.

Wowpedia icon.pngThis section uses content from Wowpedia.
Polkelt is one of the six mini-bosses that are required to call forth Darkmaster Gandling. Polkelt is notable among them in that he is the only one of the six that does not drop a Corruptor's Scourgestone. As we can tell from his name, he was once the keeper of knowledge, knowledge that has sadly been lost, however, as he is now a shambling, unintelligent monster.

Trivia

  • Polkelt's flavor text seems to be a valid Quicksort algorithm in Haskell programming language, describing what his Battlecry does.
  • There is an error with Polkelt's Battlecry animation, which depicts him shuffling the cards in the opposing deck instead.
