Notes[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

In a desperate bid to repair and hijack a Broken Demolisher, Aranna and company go toe to toe with Burgrak in this unique encounter. Unlike previous bosses, the fel orc mechanic has no Health, meaning he cannot be killed. To win, the player must cast 12 Spare Parts and Burgrak's Hero Power grants both players a Spare Part each time any Mech dies.

In the early game, gaining board control should be the player's first priority. Make good use of your early game minions like Spymistress or SI:7 Agent to take care of the 2 Bonechewer Brawlers and contest the board. When you're able to contest the board, try and use any Spare Parts towards building a big minion like Questing Adventurer or Edwin VanCleef.

Having a big minion in play allows for more favourable trades and better board control. From that point on, simply continue to maintain board control as you wait for Burgrak to play more Mechs to generate enough Spare Parts to complete this encounter.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Burgrak Cruelchain is original to Hearthstone. He is a fel orc.

From Wowpedia:

Fel orcs (or blood orcs) are corrupted orcs created by the continual consumption of pit lord blood, which has caused them to be completely consumed by madness and bloodlust. Most could be found in Outland as members of the Fel Horde, loyal to the Illidari. After the alternate Gul'dan took control of the Iron Horde and bound it to the Burning Legion, many orcs of the alternate Draenor became fel orcs as well.
The fel orcs were originally created by the former ruler of Outland, Magtheridon. When Illidan Stormrage overthrew him, he took control of his Fel Horde and imprisoned the pit lord, using his blood to produce more fel orcs. They are easily distinguishable from regular orcs by their red skin, glowing red eyes, longer tusks and the spiky growths all over their body. The alternate Draenor fel orcs are the result of orcs drinking the blood of Mannoroth and have similar features to the Outland ones, albeit with black and grey skin and glowing green eyes instead of red.
