Hearthstone Update 14.2: The Dalaran Heist

Recommended Posts


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.

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?

      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.
      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.
      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.
