Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

High Priest Thekal was the High Priest of the Primal God Shirvallah, the god tiger. In order to quell Hakkar the Soulflayer, the trolls of the land banded together and sent a contingent of High Priests into the ancient city of Zul'Gurub. Each priest was a powerful champion of the Primal Gods, but despite their best efforts they fell under the sway of Hakkar. Now the champions and their Primal God aspects feed the awesome power of the Soulflayer. Any adventurers brave enough to venture into the foreboding ruins must overcome the High Priests if they are to have any hope of confronting the mighty blood god.

In Hearthstone lore, Thekal serves as the champion of Shirvallah's Tigers, the paladin team in Rastakhan's Rumble. The last time the Rumble was held, Thekal secured victory for Shirvallah's Tigers by clinching the final against Gral's Sharks.[1]

This master fighter is a fan favorite! Wielding the Light as a weapon, he can use his healing energy in ways Paladins haven't seen before. Confident to a fault, Thekal moves almost as quickly as he talks, dancing around his opponents for the crowd.[2]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Shirvallah's Vengeance - Auto-win with Hir'eek's Hunger if you play a damage card (Flame Imp, Kobold Librarian, etc.) on turn one.
