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

      For the first time, we know exactly where and when the card reveals for the upcoming expansion will happen.
      The reveal season will start off with the livestream on November 20. Then, it's time for the fan sites and streamers to take over.
      The schedule for the reveals during November 21 to November 26 has been unveiled and you can check it out below. We will have a fast pace of 3 to 4 reveals per day!
      Blizzard Entertainment
      We’ve teamed up with the Hearthstone community to bring you a treasure trove of card reveals!
      Tricky traps and dangerous dungeon dwellers lurk behind every twist and turn of Hearthstone’s upcoming expansion. We’ve gathered a party of Hearthstone community members to bring to light all the lavish loot and malicious minions they’ve discovered while venturing deep into the catacombs.
      Check out the days and times below, and click the images to portal directly over to their channels. 
      Week of November 20 The schedule for Week 2 will be posted on Friday November 24 PST!
      (source)
      We will be following closely these card reveals. You should look out for them on our news forum and on our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.

      It looks like that, contrary to previous expansions, the Kobolds and Catacombs card reveals will start with a card reveal stream.
      We are used to getting card reveals streams in the end of the revealing period, but now we get one in the beginning (and presumably another one in the end?).
      As it was already known, the card reveals will restart on November 20. The stream, hosted by Game Designer Peter Whalen and Brian Kibler, will begin at 11 a.m. PST or 8:00 p.m. CET of that day. It will be broadcast on the PlayHearthstone Twitch channel and it will be available in several languages.
      Hopefully we'll get a good amount of cards shown; we'd expect to see around 15 cards. As always, Icy Veins will be here to cover this. Don't forget to keep an eye at our Kobolds & Catacombs hub!

      We finally have a new brawl this week and it rewards a Kobolds & Catacombs pack.
      In this Tavern Brawl, you just pick a class and you get a random deck.
      Both players get a quest. This quest requires that 7 minions are played by any player. When the quest is completed a Treasure Chest, similar to the one spawned by Marin the Fox, will appear on both sides of the board and the quest counter will be reset.
      If you are the one to play the 7th minion, then an easier-to-break 0/4 Treasure Chest (which can be healed) will appear on your opponent's side. In contrast, a normal 0/8 Treasure Chest will appear on your side of the board and vice versa.
      Be aware that even though the quest states that minions need to be summoned, they actually need to be played. This means that cards like Stand Against Darkness or the minions summoned from cards like Barnes or Murloc Tidehunter do not add to the quest counter.
      This Tavern Brawl combines skill and luck. You have to make critical decisions in choosing whether to push face damage or break the chest and hope for the best. On the other hand, a good Treasure Chest highroll can completely change the game.
      Upon victory in this brawl, you will be awarded with a Kobolds & Catacombs card pack which can be opened when the new expansion releases.
