Dalaran Heist Mage Guide

Recommended Posts

You're still missing treasures, for instance the 6/1 Weapon with deathrattle "summon all minions killed by this weapon this run".

Togwaggles-Dice.png

You listed Togwaggle's Dice as a poor choice but I think it's at least a good treasure. You underestimate the huge power it has if combined with Potion of Vim. Potion of Vim by itself is rather average because you usually have a hard time playing that many cards early on, which results in burning lots of cards - even if you'd be playing a zootype deck with cheap minions.

I'd pick Togwaggle's Dice over any other passive treasure anyday. If you happen to have a chance to combine it with Potion of Vim, go for it! You'll have so many cards in your hand, you'll most likely have some expensive cards that have their cost reduced to 3. 2. 1 or even 0. Turn 2 Ragnaros? Sure, why not.

Robes of Gaudiness is more consistent in that regard, but you'll never defeat bosses like Heroic Zuramat the Obliterator with Robes of Gaudiness (Hero Power: 2 Mana - Banish a minion to the Void [basically silence and destroy]) if you can only play 2 cards a turn.

I had a hard time with bosses 7 and 8 in Violet Hold Heroic, took me like 10 runs total. Because that stupid Core Hound Lavanthor has the perfect synergies. Dice and Vim finally combined and it was almost a breeze.Togwaggles-Dice.png

I think you are over rating Wonderous Wonderball.

Yes, it's fun and it can save your but every once in awhile. However, it's very random and you've rated other random effects fairly low. It's also not always beneficial. I've had several situations where it changes the mana cost of a 2 or 3 mana minion to 5 or 6. It's killed my minions on randomly recast spells. It also gave me 6 copies of Medivh, the Guardian on turn 1, thus filling my hand with unusable cards. As a result I burned several helpful cards because I could not shrink my hand.

In my opinion the Wonderous Wonderball treasure is at best Average. If you want to rated it good, I could see that as a possibility, However, there is no way this is excellent unless the reviewer got the best luck of all time on its effects.

I agree - it is much too unreliable to be "excellent".

Sure, it can be fun, but "fun" is something very individual. A ranking is more about solid facts, that's way I'd rate this treasure as average.

The Robes of Gaudiness are excellent unless you're doing the Dalaran bank and end up with the last boss of Trade Prince Gallywix, in which case it probably makes the encounter impossible.

Was breezing through Heroic on the Mage but as soon as my hand got too full of coins, it was impossible to do anything, because you can only play two cards at a time. Either get rid of two coins, or play two cards -- and end up with more coins.

Might want to add a note about that.

I would not even rate it average. It is simply bad. Its effects can be terrible: blasting your own minions, burning cards, even triggering when the game is already won. It is too unreliable too depend upon. I would advice not to pick this unless you like some extra rng in your game.

      Watch the Masters Tour stop at Las Vegas this weekend and earn free Rise of Shadows and Classic packs via Twitch Drops.
      The tournament will take place between June 14 - 16.
      Here's how Twitch Drops work and what you need to do to earn free packs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What It Is
      If you watch 3 hours of Masters Tour Las Vegas (consecutive or non-consecutive) on any of our official channels during the designated timeframes listed below, you will be granted a Rise of Shadows card pack. Keep watching for a total of 6 hours and you’ll be granted another Rise of Shadows pack! On top of that, 1,500 lucky eligible viewers will be randomly rewarded with Classic card packs every hour.
      These rewards can be earned during the following times:
      June 14: 9am–8pm PT June 15: 9am–8pm PT June 16: 9am–8pm PT Eligible channels:

      The recently buffed cards are featured in preconstruced decks in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      In "Rise of the Mech" you literally only have to click the Brawl button, since you get a random class with a premade deck. Decks are built around cards buffed in the last balance update.
      Unlike most Brawls, this one seems to be in Standard format.
      As always, you will get a Classic pack as a reward.

      The Adventure concludes and there are many rewards to reap for completing it, while you can also unlock Anomaly Mode.
      The Dalaran Heist concludes with its fifth and final chapter. Apart from getting the two remaining Heroes, you can also unlock Anomaly Mode once you are done with all chapters.
       You can purchase this new chapter as part of the $19.99 complete Dalaran Heist bundle. You can also grab The Underbelly, or other individual chapters, for $6.99 or 700 Gold by purchasing them in the in-game shop.
      This final week is special, since there are numerous rewards to get and you can also unlock Anomaly mode.
      Chapter 5 Details

      As if the Dalaran Heist hasn't proven long and repetitive enough, Chapter 5 will last even more. The twist for the Kirin Tor Citadel is that it has four extra bosses, therefore each run will have 12 encounters.
      The Heroes
      The last two remaining Heroes to be added are Warlock and Paladin.
      Tekahn is the Warlock Hero, having the following Hero Powers and starting decks available:

      Hero Powers
      Life Tap (2 mana) – Draw a card and take 2 damage. Pain Split (2 mana) – Take 2 damage. Deal 2 damage. The Pact (2 mana) – Take 2 damage. Summon a 2/2 Imp. Starting Decks
      Sacrificial – Self-damage + Deathrattles Seeker – Card generation Imp-ressive – Demons Karl/George is the Paladin Hero. He seems to be suffering from insomnia! Here are his Hero Powers and starting decks:

      Hero Powers
      Reinforce (2 mana) – Summon a 1/1 Silver Hand Recruit. Backup (2 mana) – Add three 1/1 Silver Hand Recruits to your hand. Boon of Light (2 mana) – Give a friendly minion Divine Shield. Starting Decks
      Old Hero – Divine Shield cards Adventure – Buffs! Holy Flames – Secrets + Dragons. Rewards
      There are many more rewards this time, since these are the final rewards you will get from the Dalaran Heist. By beating five bosses in Chapter 5 you will receive three Rise of Shadows card packs.
      If you've completed all Chapters at least once, you will also get a Golden Classic pack and Golden Zayle, Shadow Cloak (if you didn't prepurchase or haven't crafted him already). We've covered this new Legendary card, which works like Whizbang the Wonderful, in this article.
      Finishing all five chapters on Normal gives you the Prize of Shadows card back.

      Finishing all five chapters on Heroic gives you the Got Away with It! card back.

      Anomaly Mode
      We aren't done, though! After unlocking all five chapters, Anomaly mode becomes available. Anomaly mode adds another random effect that persists through the run to a chapter you've begun.
      There are 18 modifiers and we know 16 of them:
      Modifier Description Arcane All spells cost 2 less Crying All Battlecries Trigger Twice Dragon Soul When a player casts 3 spells in a turn, that player summons a 5/5 dragon Fishy Murlocs occasionally join the battle Glittering Gain a Treasure after playing high-cost cards Growing Minions gain +1/+1 at the end of their owner's turn Gorged Both players start with two extra cards and Mana Crystals Hallucinating Both players start with 10 Hallucinations in their deck Infused Summoning minions will give them Taunt, Divine Shield, Rush, or Windfury at random Nesting When a minion is played, it gains "Battlecry: Summon a 1/1 copy of this minion" Ogreish All minions have a 50% chance to attack the wrong enemy Rattling All Deathrattles trigger twice Reductive At the end of each player's turn, reduce the cost of cards in their hand by 1 Refreshing At the end of each player's turn, the player draw until they have 5 cards in hand. Summons After a spell is cast, summon a minion of the same cost. Wild Magic All spells cast an additional time (Targets chosen randomly) Don't forget to check out our Dalaran Heist guide, which should be properly finished really soon!

      A Q&A took place in the Russian official forums and some interesting tidbits of information were revealed, like Vanish being a candidate for the Hall of Fame.
      u/mawilek has kindly translated and summarised the most important points from this Q&A. In short, Trolden (who is also a Community Manager for Russia) requested some questions from the community and he posted the answers the day before yesterday.
      Here is what you need to know:
      Vanish is a HoF candidate. That's still not final, but they are even thinking to move Vanish to the Hall of Fame before the rotation in April.
      There are no plans to move Toki, Time-Tinker or Whizbang the Wonderful back to standard after rotation. But they will continue experimenting with this kind of things.
      Zayle, Shadow Cloak's decks are to be reviewed only once after rotation and maybe in case of significant nerfs (you can find our extensive article on Zayle here)
      26 epics in RoS was an error. They are planning to continue printing 27 epics per set in future
      Adventures: It takes about 2 weeks to create and balance Heroic mode after Normal mode is ready
      Still no information on future PVE formats, but they have huge plans for those and looking for any kind of feedback for The Dalaran Heist.
      They are probably going to keep the Dalaran Heist monetization model for future single player content. Of course, it will still be available to buy with Gold.
      For those of you who know Russian, you can find the entire Q&A (which probably contains more answers) here.
