Notes[edit | edit source]
- Playing either Harrison Jones or Reno Jackson during this encounter will result in the Curator saying "Scoundrel detected! Harrison Jones/Reno Jackson is not permitted." and dealing 3 damage to the minion in question.
- Minions with Rush ignore the Curator's Hero Power on the turn they are summoned and may freely attack its minions.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Heroic[edit | edit source]
Freeze Mage works very well in this encounter. The Freeze effects and removal allow the mage plenty of time to find their damage-dealing cards, making Emperor Thaurissan unnecessary. Ideally, clear the board and wait for an Archmage Antonidas set up, as the Curator lacks hard removal.

Lore[edit | edit source]
- "The third level of Karazhan is Medivh's prized Menagerie. Creatures from all over the world are gathered and penned up here and tended to by the massive mechanical Curator. Now, without Medivh, the Curator's programming has gone haywire. Instead of keeping the creatures in their cages, he's just letting them loose! It's really just one flipped bit. You will have to reprogram the Curator, and he will help you wrangle the escaped creatures, so you can move up through the tower."
Menagerie Managed[edit | edit source]
- "Hello. This Curator is programmed for complete Menagerie management. It is this Curator’s duty to ensure the safety and well-being of all creatures within the Menagerie. The Menagerie spans an area greater than the geometric volume of this tower, and contains a constantly variable number of exhibits. Due to a large number of exhibits and extra-dimensional spaces, this Curator employs the services of several less advanced assistants to ensure 100% containment."
- "On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your enjoyment? Please repeat your response. Thank you. This Curator will attempt to elevate your level of enjoyment with a tour of the Menagerie. As we tour the Menagerie, please comply with all gallery protocols to ensure that no creatures go free or come to harm. Menagerie Tour Program version 4.7.7 is now online."
- "Many creatures in the Menagerie generate values for excitement greatly exceeding zero. Your tour coincides with this large predator’s feeding time. This Curator will now provide it with the large quantity of food it requires. Warning: Please step out of the meat splash zone. Oh, no. You have failed to exit the splash zone. Please allow this Curator to hand you a towel."
- "You are experiencing elevated blood pressure and adrenaline levels. Diagnosis: Excitement! This Curator is glad you are having a good time!"
- "This portion of the Menagerie is empty and awaiting new exhibits. We will pass through this gallery into a region with populated exhibits. Please repeat your query? Your query cannot be processed. Error: the Imp you have indicated is not allowed in the Menagerie, therefore it does not exist. The displays are guaranteed to be safe. Please move along. Menagerie Tour Program is shutting down."
- "Moroes has returned. This Curator will now escort you out of the Menagerie."
- "Are you satisfied with your tour?"
In World of Warcraft[edit | edit source]
- "This curator is equipped for gallery protection."
- The Curator is an Arcane Guardian boss in the Menagerie in Karazhan. It is not optional; raids wanting to kill the bosses behind it must first defeat The Curator. The encounter is not difficult to learn, but is (for new raids) a rather hard gear check. A raid able to defeat this boss is in principle equipped well enough to clear the whole instance, save perhaps Nightbane and Prince Malchezaar.
- Most of the fight consists of two alternating phases: a 90 second Flare Phase followed by a 20 second Evocation Phase. Once the Curator's health drops below 15% it does a soft enrage, stops summoning Flares and Evocating, but instead increases melee attack speed and Hateful Bolt frequency. 10 minutes after the pull the Curator does a hard enrage and wipes the raid very quickly.
