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


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.


  • 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.
