Strategy[edit | edit source]

Normal[edit | edit source]

Zaraam starts off weak, but becomes more powerful over time due to building up both his own Hero Power and C'Thun. He also has Taunt minions and cards that destroy friendly minions, so he will inevitably strengthen his own Hero Power with their deaths. If he plays Usher of Souls, remove it as soon as possible, since the minions' deaths will strengthen both Zaraam and C'Thun. Try to build up your board and deal as much damage to Zaraam's face as possible.

Emote Response

Nothing you say can hide your failure.

Hero Power

Chaos unfolds.
Let pain devour reason.
The plague consumes all.
You brought this upon yourself.


Fools lament, but plagues bring profit to the wise.
I welcome the tide of madness... obviously.
The plagues come one by one, and then—the end.

You sought an illusion from the beginning.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Zaraam is unique to Hearthstone. He is an ethereal transformed by the Old God C'Thun, now becoming its servant.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Boss appearances are not uniformly distributed and Zaraam seems to be the rarest of 7th floor encounters. [1]
