Strategy[edit | edit source]

Normal[edit | edit source]

Please add any available information to this section.

Skelesaurus Hex is the perfect example of a high RNG boss. The solution is simply. Just keep on replaying until you get lucky! If you aren't willing to wait, look at heroic because heroic is what happens when you don't get 0 cost cards...

Heroic[edit | edit source]

Please add any available information to this section.

There are two possible approaches.

  1. Run a hyper aggressive deck. The opponent only has 30 health and 15 armor and can be taken out pretty fast. Consider decks like murloc shaman/paladin, face hunter, or pirate warrior
  2. Run a extreme control deck. Take losses in early game to win late! Control Warrior and Resu Priest should be able to do well here. Also consider running cards like Platebreaker and Alexstrasza to quickly weaken the opponent.

Note, both decks may face bad luck. Skelesaurus Hex is not a reliable first try boss...

Not everything. Just the good things.

Oooh, is this really Arthas’ signet ring? And in mint condition.

Reno, Brann, hide the artifacts.

He’s animating an army! Elise, stop him!
Elise Starseeker
Tel'zaxus Nalore! The staff’s too strong, but I can slow him down!

We'll help with the exhibits. Explorer, you get to Rafaam!
