Tavern Brawl: Ragnaros' Fire Festival

Recommended Posts

The Midsummer Fire Festival is upon us and Mini-Rag is waiting for you at the Tavern Brawl!

Ragnaros' Fire Festival is the 108th Tavern Brawl and it is a brand new one. You will have to pick a hero and make a deck on your own, with which you will have to beat your opponent.

At the start of the game, a minion called Mini-Rag will appear in the side of the player who will go second. It's a 2/3 immune to all damage minion, that fires 1-damage missiles to the player on the opposite side. The amount of missiles is equal to his total attack. Each time Mini-Rag kills a minion his attack value goes up. Lastly, Mini-Rag will switch board sides at the end of each turn.

Obviously, token decks are good for keeping Mini-Rag fed. Bear in mind that you can Devolve him if he becomes dangerous; he will reappear in the next turn as a 2/3. You can also bounce him with cards like Shadowstep and Youthful Brewmaster.

That's not all, though. Instead of just rushing to beat your opponent and get that precious card pack, you can co-operate in order to feed Rag as many minions as possible. There is even a counter at the end of the game, informing you of how many minions were killed.

Once Mini-Rag kills a specific amount of minions in total, your Wow emote will shoot fireworks. Specifically, you get 1 firework for 8 minions killed, 2 fireworks for 30 minions killed and 3 fireworks for 60 minions killed. You can use the upgraded Wow emote during the entire duration of the Midsummer Fire Festival.

It was announced on Twitter that the Midsummer Fire Festival will last two weeks. Remember that you will earn double gold while completing quests during the duration of the festival.

I posted about using shaman in this brawl yesterday (sorry for jumping the gun and not waiting for this article to be written). I discovered that the shaman's Healing Totem will save your board by healing after Mini-Rag does his damage, but before your minions actually die. You're minions will reach 0 health, but before they officially bite the dust, Healing Totem resets their health to 1.

Another poster stated that this did not work for him/her. The Healing Totem healed the minions BEFORE Mini-Rag shot fire at them, essentially doing nothing to spare their lives. I wanted to see this for myself...

After a couple more matches, I have had it happen to me BOTH ways. In the first test match, Healing Totem activated before Mini-Rag's ability, so my board still died. In the second test match, Healing Totem was back to being a lifesaver again, activating after Mini-Rag. I have yet to determine why this is, but I was up against a Warlock in each of the matches in which it worked. (The other matches in which it did not work were against priest, paladin, and druid.) I don't see why the opposing class would matter, but I suppose it could have something to do with it...?

So basically, my shaman totem strategy still works...half the time? Haha

Maybe it has to do with who starts with Mini Rag?  IE who goes first or second.

Could be. I didn't think to keep track of that. I stopped recording my matches a little while ago, but maybe I should start again to aid in solving mysteries like this one. Would be nice if I could go back and watch them.

Could also be the Dominant player rule, which causes actions not to be resolved in the order of play, but rather for the dominant player first, then followed by the other player. Not sure if it applies here though. Maybe someone who knows the advanced rulebook better could shed some light.

So I only benefit from this reward if I play WoW or what does this mean? Because in Hearthstone I can see no effect from reaching the bonus goals.

Wow emote is the upper right one if I recall correctly. For example, Valeera's Wow emote is "Incredible."

lol...so it really is Wow=wow and not WoW=World of Warcraft. That got me confused, thanks for clearing that up. :)

Lol. It took me a while to figure out what you were talking about. I see how you were interpreting that now. Funny. >.<

I reached 60 Rag kills and all it does is shoot some fireworks off behind your 'Wow' emote text bubble. The effect isn't anything fancy.

      A new round of hotfixes has been applied to the Dalaran Heist solo adventure. Check out the hotfix patch notes for more details!
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve just applied the following adjustments to the The Dalaran Heist solo adventure. You will not need to patch your game client in order to receive these updates.
      BALANCE CHANGES
      Adjusted the rarity of some passive Treasures. Slightly increased the power of the “Togwaggle’s Dice” Treasure. Note: Togwaggle’s Dice does not randomize between 0 and 10, it increases or decreases the cost of cards at random. Normal Encounter Adjustments: Decreased the power of Vas’No’s deck. Heroic Encounter Adjustments: Changed the theme and playstyle of Sky Captain Smigg’s deck to be more aggressive. Increased the cost of Anarii Duskgrove’s “Summon Protectors” to (3). Increased the power of the following Heroic encounter decks: The Amazing "Bonepaw" Dagg Cruelmight Dalaran Fountain Golem Draemus Kazamon Steelskin Valdera Highborne Ol’ Toomba Ichoron Millificent Manastorm Decreased the power of the following Heroic encounter decks: Linzi Redgrin Aki the Brilliant Vas’No Haro Setting-Sun Anarii Duskgrove Tala Stonerage Disidra Stormglory Ranger Ar’ha Ungan Oddkind Bookmaster Bae Chao BUG FIXES
      Fixed a bug that caused Queen Wagtoggle’s Hero Power to summon low-cost minions too frequently. Fixed a bug where Xur’ios would use his Normal deck in Heroic mode.

      After the announcement of the Rise of the Mech event, which brings card buffs and a new Legendary to the game, players realised that an overpowered combo could be created with that new Legendary and Reckless Experimenter.
      As a reminder, the new neutral Legendary is called SN1P-SN4P. Its Golden version will be given for free to anyone who logs in during the Rise of the Mech event, between June 3 and July 1.

      Players quickly realised a broken combo between SN1P-SN4P and Reckless Experimenter that allows for an early-game infinite damage combo in Priest - something that had escaped Blizzard's radar. They quickly amended their omission by nerfing Reckless Experimenter. The Epic Priest minion will still reduce the cost of Deathrattle minions by 3 mana, but the cost now can’t be reduced to less than 1.
      The combo, of course, will still be doable but it will not be infinite. There are other infinite combos with SN1P-SN4P in Wild, along with Mechwarper, but Team 5 has decided to let them be - for now.
      The Reckless Experimenter nerf will go live on June 3, along with the Rise of the Mech update.

      Hey Folks,  
       
      After the announcement of the Rise of the Mech update, we became aware of an interaction between SN1P-SN4P and Reckless Experimenter that allows for an early-game infinite damage combo in Priest. As a result of this, we’ve opted to make a change to Reckless Experimenter to go along with the 14.4 patch (scheduled to release June 3) so this combo is no longer possible. We’re also aware of some interactions that SN1P-SN4P creates in Wild when played alongside multiple copies of Mechwarper. We’ll be keeping a close eye on how that plays out over the following weeks. Here is how the card now reads (updated card asset here) :
       
      Reckless Experimenter – Deathrattle minions you play cost (3) less, but die at end of turn. (Cost can’t be reduced below 1.)  
       
      Once the change to Reckless Experimenter is live, you will be able to disenchant it for its full Arcane Dust value for two weeks.  
       
      Cheers,
      Chris_Attalus

      In Chapter 3 of the Dalaran Heist, the League of E.V.I.L sows chaos in the Streets of Dalaran.
      You can purchase this new chapter as part of the $19.99 complete Dalaran Heist bundle. You can also grab Streets of Dalaran, or other individual chapters, for $6.99 or 700 Gold by purchasing them in the in-game shop.
      Chapter 3 Details

      The twist for this chapter is called Crowded Streets. Three untargetable minions will be present on each player's side of the board, restricting the number of minions that can be in play. You can therefore only have 4 minions up at a time.
      The Heroes
      The Streets of Dalaran chapter introduces two new Heroes: the Priest and the Rogue.
      Kriziki is the Priest hero. Here are its potential Hero Powers and starting decks:

      Hero Powers
      Lesser Heal (2 mana) – Restore 2 Health. Disort (2 mana) – Swap a minion’s Attack and Health. Soothe (1 mana) – Give a minion -2 Attack until next turn. Starting Decks
      Disciplined – A typical Priest deck with Divine Spirit and Inner Fire, as well as healing spells Shadows – Shadow-themed cards Visions – Deathrattle minions + 0 mana spells The Rogue hero is Captain Eudora, one of the few World of Warcraft characters in the Dalaran Heist. Here are her Hero Powers and starting decks:

      Hero Powers
      Dagger Mastery (2 mana) – Equip a 1/2 Dagger. Yoink (2 mana) – Add a random card to your hand (from another class). Cut-less (2 mana) – Deal 2 damage to an undamaged minion. Starting Decks
      Skulker – Tempo deck with some Stealth cards Dead Man’s Tale – Deathrattle + Thief cards Kobold’s Desire –  Bouncing and shuffling cards into your deck Rewards
      For now, by beating five bosses in Chapter 3 you will receive three Rise of Shadows card packs. If you have beaten five bosses in each of the previous two chapters, you will now have a total of nine packs. More rewards will follow in the next wings.

      Don't forget to check out our guide for everything you need to know about the Dalaran Heist. We'll be sure to update with the bosses for Chapter 3.
