Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Wardruid Loti is a member of the Zanchuli Council and the high priestess of Gonk. She is married to Hexlord Raal, the high priest of Pa'ku.
Beloved by the youth of Zandalar, Wardruid Loti earned her place on the Zanchuli Council through the demands of the next generation of warriors and hunters. Some credit the decision of Gonk to allow the Zandalari the worship of many loa, not just himself. This progressive movement, championed in voice by Loti, aided in the resurgence of druidism as a cultural mainstay of Zandalar.

In Hearthstone lore, Loti serves as the champion of Gonk's Raptors, the druid team in Rastakhan's Rumble.

Loti keeps her distance from the other Rumble competitors, preferring the company of her dinosaur loa Gonk and other scaled companions. Druids will discover that she’s a master of shapeshifting and claw-to-hand combat.[1]
Rikkar thought Gonk and Wardruid Loti were examples of inspiring contrast. Gonk was one of the oldest loa, and Loti one of the younger competitors in the Rumble (not to mention an advisor to King Rastakhan! And one of the most talented shapeshifters in the world!), but the two of them joined forces to open the door for young Zandalari trolls to become Druids. Loti was the inspiring leader to a pack of howling, dinosaur-jumping lunatics. Maybe he could use that![2]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Challenges 3 - 5 (5 will be hard)

Challenges 6-8 (7 and 8 will be hard)

  • Early game boss plays: pretty passive when shrine is down.
  • Late game boss plays: boss will play armor cards when shrine is up. Boss is also almost immune to fatigue with Astral Tiger and Malorne.
  • Careful at 5 mana where boss can play Direhorn Stomper and summon Malorne and The Fan Favorite, which gives huge tempo.
  • Boss can and will use Keeper of the Grove to silence (and kill) your shrine.
  • Boss lacks good board wipes, but can also flood the board with overkills and summons by having extra mana from Gonk's Armament and card draws from Succoring Skyscreamer.
  • Unless the boss is very stressed (due to low health or your large board presence), she will save her armor cards to use when the shrine is up. Then, she can go from 0 minions to full board.
