Tavern Brawl: The Dark Wanderer

24 posts in this topic

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

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)
      Spreading Plague now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
