Anub'Rekhan Boss Guide

Anub'Rekhan Boss Guide

Anub'Rekhan is the first boss in the Curse of Naxxramas adventure. He resides in the Arachnid Quarter.

Heroic Difficulty Strategy

If you're on normal difficulty, the same mechanics can be applied, it's just an easier fight!

  • His hero power has been changed to summon a 4/4 Nerubian instead of 3/1. These need to be cleared quickly before you are overwhelmed.
  • Board clears are one of your best friends in this match-up as you'll be able to quickly get rid of minions protected behind some taunters, lowering damage you'll take.
  • Taunt minions are your second best friend. Use them to help trade effectively. If you can buff your taunts, even better.
  • Poison Seeds, obtainable from the Druid class challenge, is a great card to help clear the enemy board.
