Hearthstone Update 14.2: The Dalaran Heist

Recommended Posts

XDJQXIAXF4UJ1554154418909.jpg

The Dalaran Heist Adventure has been patched into the game and now we only need to wait for the May 16th release date!

Dalaran Heist is the first Adventure of the Year of the Dragon and it brings along quite a few novelties, like progress tracking, Anomaly mode, deck manipulation and more.

The first two chapters of The Dalaran Heist will be available to everyone – for free. During the next 3 weeks, the next chapters will be unlocked and you can buy them either with real money or ingame Gold.

The rewards include Zayle, Shadow Cloak (which works like Whizbang), two card backs, as well as a total of 15 Rise of Shadows card packs and a Golden Classic pack. You will earn 3 Rise of Shadows Packs by playing through each chapter, and a Golden Classic Pack when you conquer them all. Moreover, earn two unique card backs for completing all chapters on Normal or Heroic Mode.

Today's patch also contains various quality-of-life improvements, bug and card interactions fixes. The most important of them all is that you will be able to resume whatever single-player content you were doing after a disconnect.

Today’s Hearthstone update adds a whole new single-player adventure alongside game improvements and bug fixes. Read on for details!


New Single-player Adventure – The Dalaran Heist – Live on May 16!

A Dastardly Deed, Indeed:

Arch-Villain Rafaam has meticulously assembled a league of menacing and megalomaniacal supervillains to undertake his most audacious caper yet – stealing the magical city of Dalaran! As a low-level operative in Rafaam's League of E.V.I.L., you'll rampage through the streets and sewers of Dalaran ensuring that every part of the plan succeeds. Or, at the very least, you'll provide the distraction they need to accomplish their devious goals.

Here’s the Plan:

As with previous deckbuilding Solo Adventures, you'll choose a Hero and work your way through a gauntlet of increasingly difficult encounters, adding cards and powerful treasures to your deck with each win. If your Hero is defeated, you’ll lose the deck you've built and start over. 

Onward to Dalaran!

The Dalaran Heist allows players to unlock more ways to play than ever before. You’ll find more customization, more bosses to fight, and more ways to experience hijinks in the magical city!

  • Hero Loadouts: In addition to 9 playable Heroes, you can unlock new Hero Powers and Decks to be used in your quest to defeat the defenders of Dalaran.
  • Multiple Chapters: Starting this week with ‘Dalaran Bank’ and ‘The Violet Hold,’ the Solo Adventure will unfold in 5 chapters, each with its own rules, events, and unique encounters.
  • Friendly Encounters: Make changes to your Solo Adventure Deck with the help of a friendly tavernkeeper. 
  • Anomaly Mode: Throw Dalaran into chaos by playing through a chapter with randomized special rules. Will it make it easier? Harder? The only guarantee is it'll be CRAZIER.
  • Heroic Mode: For card-core players only: Can you beat the ultimate versions of all the boss encounters?
Prize of Shadows – Acquired from completing The Dalaran Heist in Normal mode.

Pricing and Rewards

Get Started for Free!
Crack open the vault and make a mad grab for loot! The first Hero and first chapter of The Dalaran Heist will be available to everyone – for free!

Unlocking Additional Chapters

Launching consecutively over the next 3 weeks, future chapters will be available for purchase as a bundle containing all chapters for $19.99 USD, and individually for 700 Gold or $6.99 USD. Both The Dalaran Bank and the Violet Hold will be available on launch day!

Unlocking each chapter after The Bank will also unlock two additional Heroes to use in The Dalaran Heist!

Earn Up To 16 Packs

Earn 3 Rise of Shadows Packs by playing through each chapter, and a Golden Classic Pack when you conquer them all. Plus, earn two unique card backs for completing all chapters on Normal or Heroic Mode.

Game Improvements and Bug Fixes

 
  • Single-player Reconnect – Players can now resume in-progress single-player content after game disconnects, closures, and crashes.
    • Please note that this is the first version of this feature and we plan to keep improving it over time. 
  • Kalecgos no longer grants a discount to another spell if the first spell is countered. This is now consistent with other one-time cost reduction effects, such as Inkmaster Solia or Kirin Tor Mage.
  • Explosive Runes now deals correct damage to minions that transform after they come into play.
  • Fixed an issue causing Nat, the Darkfisher to trigger more often than 50% of the time.
  • Changed the condition on Prismatic Lens to swap costs if both a minion and spell are drawn, instead of requiring both cards to also end in the player's hand. This means if Prismatic Lens now draws a minion and a “Casts When Drawn” spell, it will still swap their costs.
  • Fixed an issue where Da Undatakah would not return spells cast on it after copying Test Subject's Deathrattle.
  • Fixed an issue where Twilight's Call would not resurrect Deathrattle minions that were silenced before dying.
  • Fixed an issue where Twilight’s Call would resurrect cards that were granted a Deathrattle by cards like Soul of the Murloc but did not have an inherent Deathrattle effect.
  • Fixed an issue where the game would freeze if Unseen Saboteur caused your opponent to play a Chameleos that had transformed into a spell.
  • Fixed an issue where damage would not be correctly doubled when playing a healing effect with Crystalsmith Kangor and Auchenai Soulpriest on the board.
  • Fixed an issue where playing cards like Faceless Manipulator with Flobbidinous Floop in hand resulted in Floop transforming into the minion that Faceless Manipulator copied, instead of transforming into a copy of the Faceless Manipulator.
  • Fixed an issue where Eviscerate pulled from Unseen Saboteur can deal its combo damage if the Eviscerate's owner had combo activated on the previous turn.
  • Fixed an issue where minions that are forced to attack (such as due to Flark's Boom-Zooka) will not have their cost modified after attacking into a Freezing Trap.
  • Fixed an issue where Minion health could disappear during the mulligan phase in the Thai language client.
  • [Android] Adjusted installation and patching to be more consistent across all mobile platforms.
  • [Android] Fixed an issue causing some tablets to use the user interface intended for phones.
  • [Mobile] Fixed an issue causing text to disappear when switching to a non-english language client.
  • [Android] Fixed various installation issues encountered on Pixel devices.
  • [Rumble Run] Fixed an issue where Freezing Trap would destroy the enemy's shrine without leaving the dormant shrine.

Any word on what time this starts on the 16th? 10am Pacific, as usual, or some other time? Thanks.

With no further details given, I would assume 7 PM in Europe, which is indeed 10 AM Pacific time.

I am looking forward to this! 2800 gold well spent.

It seems we will get quite a lot of different options - heropowers, cards, adjustment to the decks...

That sounds great, I just hope that there aren't 1 or 2 that are way superior. And you end up having to choose those if you want to complete it.

And I am really curious about those EVIL decks from Zayle! It's awesome that he is golden, I just love those golden cards.
And if he is golden every card you have in each EVIL deck will be golden too, am I right?

Yes, you are. Too bad I hate golden cards.

As Forsen wisely said, Golden cards are for roleplayers 😛

      Hunter's latest additions are two massive creepy-crawlies with powerful effects.
       
       
      Two new Saviors of Uldum cards have been revealed via the PlayHearthstone Instagram story. This time, it's a pair of massive creepy-crawlies for Hunter: Wild Bloodstinger and Scarlet Webweaver.

      Wild Bloodstinger is slightly over-statted as a 6 Mana 6/9, but it will have to do battle with a Minion from your opponent's hand before you get to use those stats. This kind of effect has been seen occasionally before in Hearthstone: Dirty Rat was a much-loved (and much-hated) combo disruption card that denied many a Raza the Chained before they rotated to Wild together. Unseen Saboteur is a similar option in the current Standard card pool, but can be wildly inconsistent.
      Scarlet Webweaver is pretty much a Dreampetal Florist for Beasts. You could play King Krush for 4 Mana and do some big damage. You could also play Tundra Rhino for 0 Mana and do some big damage. The possibilities are endless.
      Taken together, these cards suggest Hunter might be playing with some bigger beasts than usual in Saviors of Uldum. This could be a nice change of pace after six months of messing around with Springpaw and various other 1/1s.

      A new Druid Spell has been revealed on Firebat's Youtube channel - and it looks to have a lot of untapped potential.
       
      Firebat has shared his exclusive Saviors of Uldum card reveal on Youtube: Hidden Oasis!

      The card has huge synergy with the new Druid quest, Untapped Potential, and makes it look potentially very strong - the card can be played on turn 6 with both of its Choose One effects combined every time if you're willing to be patient.

      That's all of today's scheduled card reveals - the next one is slated for Sunday at 6.00 AM BST, although it's always possible that we get some surprise reveals in the interim. See you then!

      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
       
      The Legendary Quest card for Paladin in Saviors of Uldum has been revealed by Spanish Youtuber Atlas (alongside an adorable 1-drop that will help you complete it).
      It's all about playing minions with Reborn, the new expansion keyword. Reborn Minions come back with 1 Health the first time they die, making them especially tough to get rid of (and great to copy with Emperor Wraps, the Quest reward.)
      Alongside Making Mummies we also got Murmy, a new 1 Mana 1/1 Murloc with Reborn.

       
      Seems like Paladin's identity in Saviors of Uldum is beginning to take shape: it's playing a lot of dudes with 1 Health, whether drawing them with Salhet's Pride, generating them with Sandwasp Queen, or resurrecting them with the Reborn keyword.
      Murmy has actually been teased already during a Reddit developer AMA. Asked if there were any cute cards forthcoming in Saviors of Uldum, designer Alec Dawson said:
      Alec Dawson (/u/HS_Alec)
      There are definitely a few in this expansion, especially if you like mummies! So there you have it. Murmy. Cute. In an undead, fish monster sort of way.
      (Also quite probably a terror in Murloc Shaman.)
      Watch the full reveal video below:

      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.
       
      A new Warlock card has been revealed by the Chinese streamer 瓦莉拉 (Valeera). It's the first of 51 Saviors of Uldum cards to be revealed at scheduled times by community figures and content creators.
      It's a new 2 Mana 2/1 Rare for Warlock. Here's Expired Merchant:

      This kind of targeted discard effect has been seen before on Shriek and Reckless Diretroll - it's a nice way of mitigating the randomness of the discard mechanic. In this case it can be used to duplicate one of your power cards. That could mean an extra copy of Mountain Giant, endless chains of Soulwardens and more.
      Pour one out for the Wild players though - one Bloodreaver Gul'dan was bad enough.

      Introducing Elise the Enlightened, Dinotamer Brann, Reno the Relicologist, and Sir Finley of the Sands.
       
      The Saviors of Uldum have arrived. We knew that we could expect to see new Legendary cards for Reno Jackson, Brann Bronzebeard, Elise Starseeker and Sir Finley Mrrgglton in the new expansion, but not what kind of effects they might have. Thankfully, the wait is over. All four were revealed today following a San Diego Comic-Con panel with Hearthstone game designer Dave Kosak and three League of Explorers voice actors: Terrence Stone (Sir Finley), Amy Walker (Elise Starseeker), and Carlos Larkin (Brann Bronzebeard).
      Introducing:
      Elise the Enlightened

       
      Dinotamer Brann

       
      Reno the Relicologist

       
      Sir Finley of the Sands

       
      These are the first "No Duplicates" synergy cards to be printed since Kazakus and his Kabal colleagues back in the Mean Streats of Gadgetzan in 2016, and are obviously inspired by the very first: Reno Jackson himself. They certainly pack some powerful effects, but will they be worth the deck-building condition? Only time will tell!
