The fourth wing of Blackrock Mountain - Blackwing Lair - is now open for players to experience. Some crazy new mechanics debut in this week's challenges, and the Heroic modes are no joke! A ton of awesome new Dragon cards are also coming out as rewards. Read on...

 

The Nefarian fight, in particular, is hugely interesting. If you get the chance, play Deathwing against him!

 

This week rewards a couple of key new Dragons and awesome Mage and Shaman minions:

This week's new card rewards, available now.

 

You can read Blizzard's original post below:

 


You’ve bested Lord Victor’s Nefarius’ lieutenants in the Blackrock Spire, and now it’s time to take the fight into his fortress stronghold! A decisive showdown between you and Lord of Blackrock seems inevitable. It will take all your wits to come out on top when you infiltrate the fourth wing of Blackrock Mountain: Blackwing Lair!

 

Every week, a new wing of Blackrock Mountain will become available for players to experience. Blackrock Mountain wings will unlock in the following order:


 

Blackwing Lair is Lord Victor Nefarius’ seat of power within Blackrock Mountain. There, he tinkers with blood of the various dragon flights in an effort to create a perfect, unstoppable draconic army. It’s not an exact science, but hey, it’s still SCIENCE! Victor is joined by a ravenous rogue’s gallery who are all eager to eat meet you!

Razorgore

 

Watching eggs is a full-time responsibility. It doesn’t leave poor Razorgore much time to do important things like get a degree, socialize, or do fun, destructive dragon stuff. This unfortunate situation has only worsened his historically poor temperament. Razorgore’s glad you’re stopping by to help him work off some stress! If you can successfully make an omlelette out of  Razorgore’s eggs, two copies of the Warrior card Revenge will be yours!

Vaelastraz

 

We’ve touched upon the fact that Victor Nefarius is a bad dude, and here’s the proof. Vaelastrasz was once one of the good guys - a happy-go-lucky red dragon. Victor Nefarius used dark magic to corrupt him, forcing the ferocious red dragon to serve the Lord of Blackwing Lair against his will. End Vaelastrasz’ torment and two copies of the Mage minion Flamewaker will be added to your collection.

Chromaggus

 

What’s worse than a horrible mutant dragon monstrosity that uses magic? A horrible mutant dragon monstrosity that usesfive types of magic, obviously! Chromaggus unleashes abilities ripped from the flesh of all five dragon flights. Don’t ask how he got those powers. Viscera are involved. Hey, we told you not to ask! You’ll have to battle the chromatic horror before you can take on Lord Victor Nefarius. Put Chromaggus down and you’ll gain access to a pair of Hungry Dragon cards.

Lord Victor Nefarius

 

Victor Nefarius is super impressed that you made it this far, even if it really wasn’t part of his plan. All the same, he’s going to end you now. It’s nothing personal; he just thinks you’re an insolent, uppity, mortal interloper. Don’t let appearances deceive you -- there’s more to the Lord of the Blackwing Lair than meets the eye. De-throning the Lord of Blackrock will award you with two copies of the Shaman minion Fireguard Destroyer for your collection.

 

Claim victory against all of the foes within Blackwing Lair and the Legendary Chromaggus card will be added to your collection!

 

Two Class Challenges will also become available to players that have defeated all of Blackwing Lair’s bosses on normal mode. Class challenges feature pre-built decks, and will put your skills with those specific classes to the test! Blackwing Lair has challenges in store for Warlocks and Rogues. Warlocks will get a second chance to unleash their shadowy powers against Razorgore. Success will earn them two copies of the Warlock spell Demonwrath. Rogues will have to utilize their skills at subterfuge to soothe the corrupted Vaelastrasz once more. Two copies of the Dark Iron Skulker minion are at stake!

Do you crave an even more challenging experience? If so, try out Heroic Mode! Blackwing Lair’s Heroic Mode is available upon completing the wing on normal difficulty. The foes in Heroic Mode are far more difficult to best than their normal mode counterparts, and often require tailor-made decks.

 

You’ve come far in your journey through Blackrock Mountain. One final wing is all that remains. What new horrors await you?

 

The final wing releases next week, and the full range of new cards - including a bevvy of additional Dragon minions - will be unleashed on the ladder. What card do you think is going to make the biggest impact?

Razorgore heroic deck:

If you can't get something on the board before the first egg hatches, best to concede and start over.

I mostly used my guys to keep the eggs down. Concecrate on turn 4 is ok. Razorgore mostly uses Bloodlust on turn 5. I just took the damage. Equality is great for the "oh crap" moments when you can't use anything else to stop eggs from reaching 5 life.

As soon as you have board control: Muster + Quartermaster is key here, the game is almost won. Just keep killing the eggs, use Weapons, Humility and Tirion to save yourself when the big guys are dropped. Of course Equality + Concecrate is also a great way to get out of trouble.

Vaelastraz heroic Deck:

The Idea is pretty strait forward. He tries to mill you...so you just mill him right back. In the End, because of your small minions, you were able to "out mill" your scaley opponent, because you had small minions to play wink.png

Chromaggus heroic Deck:

Here you try to keep yourself alive. Always try to discard the bronze and black cards given to you as soon as possible. Best to try to mulligan for lightwell, because that helps keep you alive and Chromaggus ignores it. Your main goal, next to winning, is to build up a huge minion, with which Chromaggus can't do anything against.

Stay alive, collect your buffcards and make a nice big guy and roast you some lizard wink.png

Lord Victor Nefarius heroic Deck:

To be honest, all you just need is a standard control paly Deck and just run him down like you would any other. I was a little disapointed sad.png

Personal experience to his hero power: He seems to get Avenge alot. I must have seen that secret 6,7 times...

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
