Strategy[edit | edit source]

Apexis Smuggler is a spell generator whenever you cast a Secret. Apexis Smuggler is great in Secret Mage or Spell Mage (provided you have secrets) in which you can gain card advantage with your spells.

To maximize up to 5 spells generated , discounting costs on secrets through Sorcerer's Apprentice, Kabal Lackey, Kirin Tor Mage, Ancient Mysteries or drawing secrets from Arcanologist

Be careful that you must play that spell meaning you must spend mana to play the secret to activate its effects. Mad Scientist Deathrattle won't trigger its effects. Also you must play a different secrets or have fewer than 5 secrets to get its effects.

In Arena, its stats are impressive for its cost but its effects are limited due to the scarce amount of secrets available in Arena.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Apexis crystals are powerful relics of the Apexis, an extinct arakkoan civilization, found in both Outland and the alternate Draenor. In Outland, items called Apexis Crystals and Apexis Shards can be obtained in the Blade's Edge Mountains and are used to trade with the Ogri'la faction, while on Draenor, Apexis Crystals are a currency acquired from a wide range of activities and used to buy armor from various vendors.

Judging by his tabard, this crystal smuggler is a member of the Scryers.

From Wowpedia:

The Scryers are a faction of blood elves led by Voren'thal the Seer. The group broke away from Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider, heir to the throne of Quel'Thalas and ruler of the blood elven race, and offered to assist the naaru in rebuilding Shattrath City. They are at odds with the Aldor, and compete with them for power within Shattrath and for the naaru's favor. Nowadays, the Scryers are notable for having the largest library out there, housing the "greatest repository of lore in Outland".
