Get ready for a showdown between the villains of two past Adventures: it's Kel'Thuzad versus Rafaam!

 

This week's Tavern Brawl (March 23-28) resembles the very first Tavern Brawl, Ragnaros versus Nefarian. This time, it's two different heroes battling it out, Kel'Thuzad versus Rafaam.

 

KT starts with 30 health and 30 armor, as well as a 2-mana hero power that allows him to resurrect a random friendly minion. Rafaam starts with 60 health and a 2-mana hero power called "Staff, First Piece". At its first stage, this hero power adds a random minion that costs 5 mana or less to your hand. However, you have two 3-mana Uncover Staff Piece cards in your deck that allow you to upgrade your hero power. With the first upgrade, your hero power becomes "Add a random minion to your hand. It costs (2) less" and with the second one it becomes "Add a random legendary minion to your hand. It costs (4) less."

 

As you can imagine, both bosses have cards and minions that you may have encountered while playing their respective adventures. Kel'Thuzad has mostly Naxxramas cards and Legendary cards that represent bosses in the Curse of Naxxramas Adventure, while the same goes for Rafaam and League of Explorers.

 

From first impressions on Reddit, people seem to think that Kel'Thuzad is overall more powerful. Personally, I played and won my first game as Rafaam: my opponent had literally no early game and if you upgrade Rafaam's hero power fast enough, the game is yours. I also felt that the League of Explorers bosses-turned-into-legendary-minions were quite powerful, Zinaar actually helped me a lot. However, if KT gets his early game, he is extremely hard to counter, especially with his Necromancy hero power.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
