Deathbringer Saurfang Boss Guide - The Lower Citadel

Deathbringer Saurfang Boss Guide - The Lower Citadel

The second boss of the Lower Citadel you'll encounter is Deathbringer Saurfang. He can only be attacked with weapons, so I hope you've got a stash sitting around.



Fight Details

Deathbringer Saurfang is an interesting fight in that he only has 20 Health instead of the usual 30 and he can only be damaged by one source - your weapons! The fight requires some good control on your part to prevent him from healing and to ensure his entire board isn't just taunt minions (which he has plenty of).

Yarr harrr! We've had fun with your typical ladder destroying Pirate Warrior deck. Just make sure you get weapons out as soon as humanly possible and smack him in the face. Try to keep minions in play to deal with his taunt minions; Sometimes he'll go face with his rather than trade so don't feel bad about passing if trading would result in a minion death that wouldn't kill a taunt.

Watch Out for These Cards

  • Blood Beast - They need to be taken out as soon as possible or all that damage you've done doesn't matter.
  • Skeletal Knight - Good idea to ignore this when possible. The odds of you getting something useful are slim.


Unlike previous adventures, this boss does not reward you with a new card. Instead, you will receive a Frozen Throne card pack upon completion of the Lower Citadel wing.
