Notes[]

  • With doubled Battlecries, The Lurker Below deals 6 damage to the initial target and 3 to all others. However if the initial target is mortally wounded after the first hit, the Battlecry will not trigger twice.
  • If a neighbor of any minion that The Lurker Below kills is Dormant, it will ignore it and skip to the one next to it.
  • The Lurker Below's Battlecry continues until it deals a non-lethal damage to a minion. Therefore it can switch directions if a minion that is killed by it summons a token after taking damage (Blackrock MountainDragon Egg or Galakrond's AwakeningBomb Wrangler). It also possible to set up a direction switch if minions that were mortally wounded by The Lurker Below, gained health afterwards (6 The Grand TournamentTiny Knight of Evil with 3 health and a Knights of the Frozen ThroneHowlfiend).

Strategy[]

The Lurker Below is nearly identical to LegacyFire Elemental, trading the ability to deal face damage for potential to hit more enemy minions. It can provide a full clear against smaller boards like Treant Druid or Galakrond Warlock, and can be used alongside Saviors of UldumHeart of Vir'naal to significantly impact larger boards.

Lurker Below works as a good finisher for other board clears. It can often clean up anything left behind after a LegacyLightning Storm or Descent of DragonsLightning Breath.

Lore[]

The Lurker Below is a kraken boss in the Serpentshrine Cavern raid. The only way to summon it is by fishing from a Strange Pool and thereby calling the kraken to the surface of the water.
