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

How to get[edit | edit source]

Regular Dart Trap is obtained x2 by completing the hunter Class Challenge in The League of Explorers, unlocked upon completing the adventure's third wing, The Ruined City.

Once the regular version has been obtained, both regular and golden versions can be crafted and disenchanted.

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

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This Secret does not trigger until after the activating Hero Power has taken effect.[1] For example, if the opponent uses Reinforce, the Dart Trap will have a chance to hit the summoned Silver Hand Recruit.
  • Dart Trap triggers in the Inspire Phase, with the same timing as Inspire minions, meaning that a minion mortally wounded by Dart Trap can still trigger its Inspire effect.[2]
  • Dart Trap, like all other Secrets that directly deal damage, is affected by Spell Damage.[3]
  • Dart Trap will no longer be offered for selection in Arena, since the 15th of September 2016.[4] However, it is still obtainable in Arena matches through random effects, such as Spellslinger.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

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.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Dart Trap is original to Hearthstone.

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