Chapter 4 of the Dalaran Heist Is Now Live

Recommended Posts

The Underbelly, the fourth chapter of the Dalaran Heist, is now live.

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.

Chapter 4 Details

The twist of this chapter is a pretty simple one: the attack and Health of all minions in play are swapped. Make sure to check the card buckets you choose: you might want to invest in minions with a lot of Health (which will become Attack with the twist) to run down the opponent boss. You might wish to play it safe and pick a healthy mix of minions and spells. 

Be careful with minions with 0 attack: some of them may prove useful, like the various eggs or Arena Treasure Chest; others, like Public Defender and Doomsayer, could be useless.

The Heroes

The Underbelly introduces the Warrior and the Druid Hero. If you are a completionist, bear in mind that you can clear the previous wings with them.

Mr. Chu is the Warrior Hero. We hope that he is more powerful than his recent Tavern Brawl counterpart! Here are his Hero Powers and starting decks:

Hero Powers

  • Armor Up! (2 mana) – Gain 2 Armor.
  • Invigorating Brew (2 mana) – Deal 1 damage to a minion and give it +2 Attack.
  • Undermine (2 mana) – Shuffle two Explosives into your opponent’s deck (they deal 2 damage when drawn).

Starting decks

  • Tough Crowd – Enrage + Weapon synergies.
  • Burning Fury – Rush + Dragon synergies.
  • Boomin’ – Mech + Bomb synergies.

Squamlish is the Druid hero. Here are her Hero Powers and her starting decks:

Hero Powers

  • Shapeshift (2 mana) – +1 Attack this turn. +1 Armor.

Starting Decks

  • Nature’s Boon – Healing + Treant synergies.

Rewards

For now, by beating five bosses in Chapter 4 you will receive three Rise of Shadows card packs. If you have beaten five bosses in each of the previous three chapters, you will now have a total of twelve. The final rewards will follow next week.

Don't forget to check out our guide for everything you need to know about the Dalaran Heist. We'll be sure to update it with the bosses for Chapter 4.

We are looking forward to the final chapter next week and the much anticipated Anomaly mode, that will come with it!

Correction: The explosives from the Warrior “Undermine” ability do 3 damage when drawn by your opponent, not 2.

While I’ve enjoyed this content a fair bit, I’m starting to find the bosses repetitive. They seem to be just reusing the various enemies across all the different wings, rather than having thematic enemies in each wing. This makes the only real difference in each wing the “twist”.

Cleared it with the new warrior. I chose the random cost of minions perk and the 3 random secrets. I then chose the highest cost minions. No matter what by turn 3 I had either a rag, sylvanas, or another high-cost minion. I also chose a lot of minions that had the same attack/health. The final game was won by a 50/50 rag shot to his face lol.

EDIT: I also chose the 10 mana "Take control of all enemy minions". During one of the tavern visits, I managed to get that spell reduced to 0 mana. Even with the random cost of all cards perk. It never cost more than 1 mana.

I totally agree.

I liked the first chapters quite a lot, but IMO it gets old very fast.

The new chapter felt like I had already played it several times. When in fact it was my first run.

You know what to expect of the treasures, you know the tavern - and the bosses are just recycled as well. The last boss is interesting and I lost twice to him because I did not have enough small minions.

And where is the point in a new hero? The standard-hero powers are known and I feel way too bored to unlock the other heropowers. Which don't seem that interesting at all. Giving a minion +1/+1, Restore a Minion to health...
Where is the point?

Same with the different decks - your starting cards differ, but since you have to choose among buckets it doesn't alter much. Why should you bother to unlock those?

Blizzard told us a lot about all the heroes, different heropowers, different decks, possibilities to alter your decks in the tavern.

After 3 von 5 chapters it already felt like I had seen everything and that everything seems to be quite the same.

After the 4th chapter I have to admit that it is quite underwhelming IMO. Sure, in theory you have hundreds of possibilities. In reality the difference between those is next to zero.

Since you get several packs and stuff that is worse a lot of dust the 2800 gold spent is still ok.

But if they had told some story it would have been a little more interesting. Sure, it is a cardgame, but they could tell a little story nontheless.

You can buy the whole thing for 20 bucks, let's remember that.

Which is quite a lot of money.

There are tons of indygames that supply you with much more for way less.

      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.
