  • The Deathrattle created by this spell will add a copy of Explorer's Hat to the hand of whichever player controls the minion when it dies. This means that if the player takes control of an enemy minion with the Explorer's Hat enchantment and it then dies, that player will be given a copy of Explorer's Hat, and not the player that originally cast it.
  • Upon the death of the possessing minion, Deathrattles are activated in the order in which they were applied. This means that if a minion with a return or shuffle into deck Deathrattle dies, further Deathrattles (including the Explorer's Hat Deathrattle) will not be activated, and the Explorer's Hat will be lost. This is because the minion is removed from the battlefield before the Explorer's Hat Deathrattle can be activated.


According to the flavor text Explorer's Hat belongs to  Harrison Jones. Since Harrison is generally quite adept at keeping possession of his hat, it's not known how it ends up coming into the player's possession.


  • This card and  Forgotten Torch were accidentally made available to players 2–3 days ahead of the release of the rest of the adventure, due to an error which made it possible for players to pre-order the first wing.
