Recommended Posts

Two new cards from Rise of Shadows were revealed earlier today!

Unleash the Beast was revealed by Chinese streamer Mr. Wuco on Twitch.

The Wyvern is a Beast. This makes for an excellent Arena card, while it also works well with Zul'jin.

Keeper Stalladris was revealed by Eurogamer. The article also contains gameplay of the card.

According to the Eurogamer article, to support Stalladris' release, Blizzard has also gone back and added new art to older Choose One cards, as both choices sometimes used the same design. The card is comparable to Fandral Staghelm and it can go well into Token and Hand Druid. In Wild, things may get a bit out of hand with Jade Idol.

Wuha, the Keeper could be awesome.

I am not exactly sure if this is designed well.

2/3 for 2 mana is a good body.

If you play Jade-Druid and have this minion in your hand AND an Jade Idol 

What exactly happens? Jade Idol is a spell. Check.

But what exactly do you get on your hand? A Jade Golem probably. But of which rank? And what about "shuffled into your deck" - what exactly do you get? Another Jade Idol (Which would be broken)? Will happen nothing and you only get the golem?

 

It is save to say that the keeper can generate great value, without having to sacrifice much. 2 mana fit in quite easily. And 2/3 as a body is good and can even be played on curve without being a terrible move. Against aggro-decks it's like a 2/3 taunt because they can't effort to let him stay alive.

IMO a very strong card.

I guess each "choose one" option is technically a sub-spell-card, which you will get onto your hand. I dont know what the cards names will be, but you will get a spell of the same cost with "summon a jade golem" and one spell with the same cost with the other effect.

Stalladris will be crazy in wild. If only they didn't nerf druid so hard.....

The hunter's spell is good, I'll try it in spell hunter or similar builds. Actually, the ability to summon something with rush with Zul'jin should not be understimated in any slow hunter deck.

      Team 5 has released a round of hotfixes specifically targeted to the newly released Adventure.
      Issues related to Duplatransmogrifier and Elixir of Vigor have been fixed. There is also a list of currently known issues that are under scrutiny and should be fixed soon.
      Kauza
      We’ve just released a hotfix to address a few issues with The Dalaran Heist.
      Fixed an issue that caused Duplatransmogrifier to delete all minions in your deck if you select a minion that was buffed by a Friendly Encounter card. Fixed an issue that caused Duplatransmogrifier to modify your deck when played by the AI. Fixed an unintended interaction with Elixir of Vigor and the “next” effects caused by cards like Electra Stormsurge. Fixed an issue that could cause poor performance under certain conditions. The following are current known issues that are still being researched and scheduled for a fix.
      Some players may be brought to a blank screen when attempting to play The Dalaran Heist. Bartender Bob may sometimes display an empty dialog bubble when leaving a Friendly Encounter. When using the “Gangs All Here” effect on a buffed minion in a Friendly Encounter, the animation improperly shows increased stats. (source)

      The widely anticipated Adventure - the first for the Year of the Dragon - is now live and you can play its first two chapters.
      The widely anticipated Adventure - the first for the Year of the Dragon - is now live and you can play its first two chapters.
      There are a lot of things to know about the Dalaran Heist. You can read an overview of them here. In this post, we are including only the information that is relevant to the first two chapters.
      Introduction
      Dalaran Heist follows the same core format as the Dungeon Run and Monster Hunt. There's a lot more to it, though: as you progress, you can unlock different starting decks and alternative Hero Powers. Each Hero has access to three different Hero Powers and three starting decks. The three starting decks promote different archetypes and synergies, while a fourth random deck option can also be unlocked.
      Tavern encounters will allow you to manipulate your deck - essentially changing it by recruiting new cards or discarding ones you don't need.

      The Adventure also has a Heroic mode, a more difficult version of it, as well as Anomaly mode (which will be available when you finish all chapters). Meanwhile, progress tracking is very meticulous this time: you will literally be able to track whatever you do during the Dalaran Heist.
      The first chapter is free. Each subsequent chapter can be unlocked for 700 gold or 6.99 USD/Euros. All five chapters can be bought together and they cost 19.99 USD/Euros.
      Chapter 1 & 2 Details
      Each chapter features its own unique encounters, twists and mechanics.

      Chapter 1 is called Dalaran Bank. Your goal is to break into the Bank of Dalaran to loot its most precious artifacts. The twist is called Coin-filled Coffers: A Cache of Cash will spawn on the opponent's side of the board. It is a 0/3 minion that has Deathrattle: Give each player 2 Coins.

      The Violet Hold is the 2nd Chapter, where you will have to defeat the guards of this magical prison to unleash the horrors within. The twist is called Imprisoned Minions – Random dormant minions are spawned on both sides of the board. They will awaken after a specific amount of turns.
      The Heroes
      When you first start Dalaran Heist, you start as a Mage. Once you start progressing, you unlock more Heroes.
      The Mage hero for Chapter 1 is Rakanishu. Here are its potential Hero Powers and starting decks:

      Hero Powers
      Fireblast (2 mana) – Deal 1 damage. Burning Wit (1 mana) – Reduce the cost of a random card in your hand by (2). Frostburn (2 mana) – Freeze a character. If it’s already Frozen, deal 2 damage. Available decks
      Flickster Trickster – Lots of Spells The Elements – Elemental archetype BURN! – Spell Damage + Secrets In Chapter 2, you will unlock two heroes: Ol' Barkeye (Hunter) and Vessina (Shaman).
      Here are the Hunter Hero Powers and starting decks:

      Hero Powers
      Steady Shot (2 mana) – Deal 2 damage to the enemy hero. Opportunist (2 mana) – Give a minion +2 Attack this turn. Pet Training (1 mana) – Add a 1/1 Shifting Chameleon to your hand. Available Decks
      Beast Within – Beasts (duh!) Locked and Loaded – Spell Hunter with Lock and Load Tech and Death – Mechs & Deathrattles And lastly, you can find the Shaman Hero Powers and starting decks below:

      Hero Powers
      Totemic Call (2 mana) – Summon a random Totem. Evolution (2 mana)  – Transform a friendly minion into one that costs (1) more. Refresh (1 mana) – Draw a card. Overload (1) Available Decks
      Carve and Curse – Midrange Shaman Primal Storms – Aggro deck with lots of Overload cards The Swamp –  Murlocs! Rewards
      For now, for completing Chapters 1 and 2 you will get a total of 6 Rise of Shadows card packs. More rewards to follow with the next wings!

      As we've traditionally done for all previous Hearthstone Adventures, we should have a guide with all the important details for the Dalaran Heist really soon.
