Rumble Run Mage Guide

Recommended Posts

I have the Jan'alai's Flame shrine and just won the 6th boss. I'm offered an upgrade for my shrine, however none of the available options are in the recommended list. I must choose between:

  • Everlasting Devotion (Start the game with a copy of your Shrine.)
  • Boon Reaper (Your Shrines have "Deathrattle: Draw cards until your hand is full.")
  • Wrath of the Loas (Your Shrines have "Deathrattle: Destroy all enemy Shrines.")

I must say I'm not thrilled by either. Adding a deathrattle to my shrine means I'm anticipating that it will be killed repeatedly, which is something I managed to avoid so far and that was clearly key to my success. Starting with a copy of the Shrine seems like a good safety, however it follows the same principle. Given that having Jan'alai's Flame twice on the board does not grant any additional effect, it's merely about hopping that at least one will be active at every given time, however this also means only 5 slots left for other minions on the board. This could be a problem, as many minions in my deck have an effect while in play.

I'm curious what more experienced Rumble Run players would pick?

That's a very unfortunate selection, and you're assessment is spot on.

I would personally advise taking an additional Shrine. While the effect indeed does not stack, the Rumble Run AI will usually prioritise killing Shrines in most situation, so having a 8-Health minion that periodically respawns will absorb a significant amount of damage to prolong the game so that your Shrine can gain more value over time.

I followed your advice. 7th boss was Princess Talanji, I had full control over the board all the time and she never got to attack my shrine, so having 2 made no difference (but the other 2 upgrades wouldn't have made any difference either).

Then 8th boss was Wardruid Loti. At turn 4 she played Direhorn Stomper, which fetched a 10/10 minion with overkill from her deck (The Fan Favorite) and put it into play directly. How the hell was I supposed to deal with that? At that point, having 2 shrines didn't help at all. It only gave more food to her overkill minions. Both shrines died at the same time. In retrospect, Wrath of the Loas would probably have served me better. But I would have lost anyway, so there's no regrets to have.
