Strategy[edit | edit source]

Tar Lurker is a powerful and cost-efficient Taunt. Because of its attack loss on your turn, its offensive uses are limited.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Tar Lurkers are tar beasts found near the Lakkari Tar Pits in Un'Goro Crater. They share a model with bog beasts in World of Warcraft, but are instead represented as tar elementals in Hearthstone.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • All three Tar Beasts in Hearthstone share a common ability, as Taunt minions with 1 attack during your turn but higher attack during your opponent's. The other two are Tar Creeper and Tar Lord.
