So I finally got a Legendary, and it's Madame Lazul. I don't play Priest but I thought she's decent. Read that she is Trash Tier currently :/

Sigh, at least I can finally start to save gold for solo mode.

Finally, back home, playing HS again. FeelsAmazingMan. Especially since I could count on somebody to help me out during my absence (stares at blob2). Don't worry, I'm not going to guilt trip anyone with this (stares more intently at blob2).

So blob2, how's your HS experience been lately (positively completely gawking at blob2). I've been having a blast with my Arena runs which I could afford with all this gold (gazing inside blob2's soul).

Well, you know my stance on the subject. Remember, better safe then sorry ;P

Well not bad. I enjoy the variety and still have some decks I might try in the future (looking at Heal Druid). I have quite a lot of dust but I'm relucant to craft more stuff (I'm thinking about Stalladris). I'm currently gearing the gold for solo mode. I hoped I'd start saving it sooner but unfortunately needed 34 packs to open a Legendary, which turned out underwhelming unfortunately...

EDIT: Oh, so we're getting two cardbacks (mediocre) and Zayle card for finishing all five story wings? Plus 3 RoS packs per wing. Well better then nothing but this is 2800 gold we're talking about... hope the gameplay is worth it.

I sat into the night yesterday watching the reveal stream of the Dalaran Heist. Looks good.

- Each wing is its own Dungeon Run.
- The bosses seem to overlap between the wings.
- Each wing has his own gimmick that affects the battlefield (opponent starts with a 0/3 chest that gives both players two coins when broken; both players start with a random imprisoned minion on the board that gets out of prison on the turn equal its cost; The space on the board is reduced from 7 to 4).
- A couple of times during the run you get to a friendly bartender that allows you to modify your deck a bit in a more controlled fashion.
- As you play more games and satisfy certain criteria you are able to choose different hero powers and different starting decks.
- And of course, new treasures added to the mix.

I don't want to spoil my fun by watching the stream, but I get the gist of it. Looks nice.

I'm thinking of crafting Keeper Stalladris. Probably know the answer myself but do you guys recommend him? I mean generally as a card, not because he is played in Token Druid for instance.

EDIT: Zayle is actually nice. I wish we would be able to pick a deck from the pool at the start of a match. Whatever the case it has two decks I wanted to try myself but don't have enough cards for or am using an alternative version of (Control Shaman & Rush Warrior, which actually is a Bomb Warrior but with a bigger foucs on Rush package). Very cool indeed! E.V.I.L. Decklist.

But that means that now I'll have to choose between playing Whizbang and Zayle whenever I play ladder. What will I do???

I got the Archivist legendary. Seems to be a good card, I feel like I should be playing it. No idea what deck it could fit in right now, can't think too much, arena overload. Got some nice streaks of 8-3 and 10-3 that allowed me to play more. Unfortunately I've ran out of gold. It's going to be a bit slow from now on.

No worries, I've reinstalled TESL and actively playing over there too. Have to recuperate the lost time and expansions and arena is going fairly well, also have the tickets to sustain it for at least a good number of days. Eventually I'll go ladder. It's funny, I can now compare the two games having first hand experience, and by quite a margin TESL wins out on mechanics and game design. Hearthstone is a lot more lighthearted, happy-go-lucky style, really is a children's card game. Both games have their appeal.

Archivist is a control deck legendary. It is considered a staple in Control Warrior. Basically any deck that is planning to go to fatigue and can enlarge its deck by 10 more cards. I suppose it might have use in Rogue with Myra's Unstable Element too. Maybe even Nomi priest.

I was wonderin' about her "popularity". I see various nerf threads, and I get why she is bashed, but it says on Hearthpwn for instance that she is played in less then 10% of decks so I don't think Blizzard will consider her nerf material because their main line of argumentation is usually that a card is played in too many decks and "limits" deck building.

She is only played in one archetype of one class, so she shouldn't be more than 10% of overall decks. Then again, I think she's somewhat annoying, not OP.

Edit: Finished the first two levels. Once each. On the first try. Without breaking a sweat. Either this is significantly easier than other solo content or I just had a lot of luck with the treasures, because the new treasures are awesome. Going to play with it a bit more later and maybe try the Heroic difficulty.

I think Heroic mode might be problematic. To finish it you need 8 wins in a row which might be pretty hard with all this RNG. In older adventures you could at least take one boss at a time... it might be infuriating and hard to finish.

To tell you the truth I'm not convinced to this mode. It feels to me like Dungeon Run 2.0 with a handful of twists. I thought it would feel more unique. I'm not sure I want to buy more wings yet...

EDIT: Oh, btw I crafted Stallardis an he is as good as I assumed. The fact that you can spam 2 bonus spells for 4 mana (with Power of the Wild) is pure value.

EDIT 2: I wonder who had the bright idea to create a card like Darkest Hour...

After what seems like an eternity, I finally manage to beat the first wing of Dalaran Heist on Heroic!


Now to do it again for every hero and every hero power.

I tried it once so far. It was easy enough until I faced the Druid Tauren that has Staghelm effect for free.

Why are always Druids the most OP AI bosses

It's not too bad until you reach challenge 6 or 7. Then the snow you up the snow. One of them has an aura that reduces your minions' attack by 2, making your smaller minions worthless. Another deals 3 damage every minion that hits her and also has that warlock card that eventually lets her summon Azari and destroy your deck. Yet another makes all his Overload spells cast three times, which does mean that he usually only plays every other turn, but it really doesn't matter when in one turn he annihilates your board and summons a full board of toads.

I bought the second wing (with 700 gold). It is enjoyable, but I still think it's pretty much Dungeon Run 2.0 (even the same powerful artifacts apply). I'm a bit disappointed that the boss pool is shared and you might get the exact same bosses in each wing, they should've mad a unique boss pool per wing, even if it would mean more work for them. I'll try to play a bit with the alternative decks, maybe that's where the strength of this mode lies?

I don't have a reason to buy packs from RoS anymore (I have most of the stuff I wanted), but I'll need to think about spending gold on more wings...

I think depending on how you look at it's either a fair prize or not. Imo it would definitely made it more worthwhile if there was a Hero skin as the reward. Just think about getting Rafaam as a Warlock skin, that would be cool (an prize for skins is usually around 10$)...

I LOVE IT!!!
New content is just what I like.
It has an old school adventure feel to it, and it has the dungeon run feel.

Though I agree they should have made more unique boss runs for each hero, wing etc.

ROGUES ARE GETTING NERFED! 4 Card Changes Coming tomorrow

EVIL Miscreant - Now has 4 Health (Down from 5)
Raiding Party - Now costs 4 Mana (Up from 3)
Preparation - Next spell cast cost is now reduced by 2 (Down from 3)
Archivist Elysiana - Now costs 9 Mana (Up from 8)

I think Rogue will still be fine, they might start playing Hench Clan Thug again, which is a super strong card but they don't even bother playing it anymore because everything else they have is so OP. So maybe Rogue becomes a normal class. Fingers crossed!

Preparation nerf is so great. I think it has been a long way coming, this should have happened at the same time with Innervate nerf. Raiding Party is so OP because Pirates have synergy with Weapons so yeah, it tutors you great cards constantly.

Elysiana is also making Warrior mirrors such a boring and long matchup it just feels right that it can't be comboed with Baleful Bankers anymore because it costs 9.

No, they nerfed her because I just got it as one of my few legendaries this expansion.

But seriously, nerfing Archivist was a bit unexpected. Was the Banker combo what they were really trying to break? If so, I don't think they fixed anything that was actually wrong. Warrior games going long is a given anyway. It was actually painful to watch the tournaments recently because of so many Bomb/Mechatun Warriors taking forever to finish a game...

Those seem like good nerfs. Won't "destroy" the cards. I think the problem with Miscreant is not the card itself, but the power of Lackeys in Rouge: cheap cards with strong effects that additionally trigger combos (and I usually use Miscreant as a base for the 'Transform' lackey if I get one).

Problem with Raiding Party is the Pirate tribe. People (with help from devs) always find a way to somehow make them troublesome, imo the tribe is poorly designed and will always make an impact in the meta one way or another.

Preparation has been one of the most strongly requested candidates for a nerf. We'll see if the change is enough (should be).

Elysiana I don't know, didn't meet her in any game actually, but guess the nerf makes sense (exploiting her with Banker for instance). And Stevie it wasn't unexpected (but strange), I've literally seen at least a few dozen threads about requests to nerf her which is strange for a card that is like played in 8% of decks and which I didn't see even once...

@Stevie
From the Hearthstone site:
Quote:
Archivist Elysiana – Now costs 9 mana. (Up from 8)
   Our goal here was to preserve the feeling and power level of Archivist Elysiana when it comes to general use, while making much more difficult to play her multiple times in the same game. Shaman will still be able to replay Elysiana through Shudderwock, but this is not as common or problematic as what we’ve seen in control Warrior decks. Now, playing Elysiana alongside cards like Baleful Banker or Youthful Brewmaster should be a less consistent strategy.


There is such a thing as long games and then there are SNOWING INFINITE games. Let's just say that games aren't supposed to hit the turn limit.
