Tavern Brawl: The Dark Wanderer

24 posts in this topic

MoPoOwE.png

This week's Tavern Brawl is Diablo themed in celebration of Diablo's twentieth anniversary. It is the eighty second Tavern Brawl.

In this Brawl, you bring your own deck to challenge the Dark Wanderer, and you will soon realise that things are not the same as in other Brawls. In the spirit in which the Brawl has been presented, I have decided not to write much about it here. The rules become apparent as you go along, and there are several unexpected happenings. I feel it would be a shame to spoil things in this article, although you are encouraged to do so in the comments below. (So if you venture down there, beware)

There is quite a lot to unearth and, of course, Blizzard have never been scared of a reference joke or two, so the real question is: Is there a cow level?

I was pleasantly surprised by this brawl. It's quite easy if you have a large card pool, but is still fun.
Also, it has replay value. Not all secrets are created equal.

Sorry, I was just pointing out that there are a whole bunch of options for the 3 secrets he plays. They aren't always the same ones, so the game always plays a bit different.

No spoiler of what happens... but something actually DOES HAPPEN when you trigger all 3 secrets! I didn't even know this at the time of my first post. Again, I won't spoil anything, but there are lists online of all the possible secrets he could have and how to trigger them. I recommend just playing a very diverse deck and doing so slowly.

There is no bonus reward for this other than it being really cool.

Also note that neither eater of secrets nor Kazan mystic can be played in the brawl; they are removed from your brawl specific collection.

Officially my new favorite card back so far. Oh and the only hint I will give is this: The secrets change from game to game.

Went in blind first try, had no idea what to expect, managed to do it with me jade shaman build. I only just managed to nuke him down in time since I had 2 health left. This is a replay of the whole thing if you're interested

This is a lot of fun, so I have two more servers to play it on, Asia is going to be a challenge with only a small card pool - and I love the Diablo card back :--)

The Wow achievement you can get during the 20 years Diablo celebration explicilty says 'there is no cow level' though...

They should have made the card back "fill up" depending how far you progressed. Would have been pretty awesome! Or some kind of fiery background that gets more demon-esque.

I got to 125 minions destroyed and 60 bovines killed... but as soon as i killed number 60 the game auto ended and I lost. I was able to recreate the scenario again. Has anyone else experienced this? Or gotten close to my numbers :)

I probably got lucky on the secret choice. I played basically nothing with my jade druid, then played Aya Blackpaw and triggered all 3 secrets at once. It's funny how most of the secrets seem to help you more than the Dark Wanderer. Is this based on the Diablo encounter/lore?

Well, if you want a spoiler on the secrets, you can watch Disguised Toast's youtube video about it.

Also, I somehow managed to steal the portal to the secret level, which was fun :D

Well, my numbers weren't the best, but I did manage to fatigue the boss. 

Stealing his bovines and then playing N'Zoth gave me some giggles.

Jade druid. Had 60 cards from the middle game, and 60 armor. He only had 1 card left (and 1 life), when on 90 turn we both exploded.

This is because the game has a preset MAX turns that can happen in any game, 89 turns to play to be exact and on the 90th turn both heroes will explode

      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!
      Daxxarri
      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!
