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

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

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
