Recommended Posts

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!

Compleated the last chapter and got my golden pack. Unfortunately 1 rare and 4 commen. Well - dust is dust.

I like the Dalaran Heist single player. But I find the passives to decisive. I got what I consider the best one. Half price cards but you can only play two card each turn. The power of it is that it rounds down så all 1's are 0 and 3's are 1 mana. So you can play a 1 and 3 mana on turn 1 and a 4 mana card on turn 2. I took the paladin hero just for the fun of it but with the this passive it was really strong.

And then I just started adding expensive card to my deck.

The second passive I got was all cards above 5 cost five. I took this mostly because the other where bad/medicore.  Since the first passive starts by halving the cost of the cards getting them cut of at five cost only help for 11+ cards. Has anyone tried this combination the other way around. I would presumed that if you started by setting all cost above 5 to 5 and then halved it 99% of your cards would cost 2. Can anyone confirm this?

And then Heartstone threw a RNG on me that shows that no carefull planning can beat pure luck.

The travern gave me 4 minions I could add with +1/+1 to my deck.  One of them was Alexstrasza. Having a 4 cost minion that put your 50+ health adversary to 15 health is a must. I then could choose "changing one of you minions to 0 cost". And I RNGed on Alexstrasza.

I actually was so lucky to get it in my starting hand a couple of times until the next tavern.

......

Where I was able to choose my 0 cost Alexstrasza as always starting in my hand.

......

And since it cost 0 I could also play a 3 mana cost minion for 1 as my second card on turn 1.

The rest of the runs was kills on turn 3 except on that went to turn 4.  I actually got the second last 100 Health boss on turn 2.

 

Most of the bosses had a comment to Alexstrasza when I played it. Nefarian was very disappointed 🙂

I have an anomaly called "Dragon soul" - 'When a player casts 3 spells in a turn, that player summons a 5/5 dragon'.

Add please.

That's some insane RNG, thanks for sharing!

Pity you only got the worst cards out of your golden pack - seems like your luck was spend on your run 😞

Edit: Just opened my golden. And yeah, like expected 4 rare + 1 common. Very disappointing. Especially since I haven't had a legendary in the last 27 standard-packs. And no epic for several packs too.

      In the Year of the Pheonix post, we learned more about the Ranked mode overhaul in Hearthstone and Blizzard has now put together a general matchmaking FAQ which hopefully helps answer the most common questions.

      Rank Mode Changes
      The existing ladder in Ranked Mode has been replaced with a new league system. The system has five leagues each made up of 10 ranks. You will start each season at Bronze 10 and slowly make your way to Bronze 1 before graduating to the Silver League and above. Each league also has rank floors at rank 10 and rank 5 where you won't go down in ranks when losing matches. New players will have their own league that runs from ranks 40-1. 
      Stars & Bonuses
      You need to gain 3 starts to be promoted from Gold 10 to Gold 9 for example. You will gain one star for each match you win and lose one for a loss.  Based on your performance in the previous season, you will be rewarded with a star bonus which acts as a multiplier on the starts you get from each win.
      Ranked Rewards
      They've also reworked rewards that you earn at the end of each season or Ranked Play. Reward chest can now contain card packs from the latest expansions, Rare, and even Epic cards based on the rank you achieve. There are also brand new first-time rewards to help new players.

      You can find more details here and check out the FAQ below for more information.

      Hey everyone! We put together a general matchmaking FAQ here for our new ranked system to help answer questions you may have.
      For general description of this new system, please refer to our Year of the Phoenix blog.
      If you want to learn some basic concepts of matchmaking, here is our previous blog about matchmaking in Battlegrounds.
      Q: How does matchmaking work for each season?
      A: There are two matchmaking pools: matchmaking by rating (aka. MMR) and by rank.
      When your star bonus multiplier is bigger than 1, or you are in Legend rank, you are (generally) in the first matchmaking pool; when your star bonus drops to 1, you are in the second pool.
      Q: Why are there two matchmaking pools?
      A: Since each player starts at the bottom of the ladder at start, we want fair matches for everyone (aka. win-rate close to 50%). At that time, your progression on ladder is protected by your star bonus, thus your net expected gain will be positive through the ladder. Once other players run out of star bonuses, matching by rank will allow for good players, or players who want to push themselves a bit, to be able to progress to a higher rank.
      In short, having two matchmaking pools helps players progress in the ladder without having to grind as much, while still making most matches fair.
      Q: If I “tank” my MMR at certain rank floor, will I be matched with easier opponents next season because you are matchmaking by MMR at the start?
      A: No, in general you won’t. At the start of the season we will recover your MMR to certain threshold if it is dropped below that value, which is based on what your rank is in the previous season. Therefore, there would be no benefits to intentionally tank your MMR.
      Q: How many stars bonuses do I get at the start of the season?
      A: It depends on your current MMR and the rank you reached from your previous season, whichever gives a higher value. Generally, the minimal initial star bonuses you get for each rank floor you reached are:
      Best Rank Minimal Initial Star Bonuses Bronze 10 2 Bronze 5 2 Silver 10 2 Silver 5 3 Gold 10 4 Gold 5 5 Platinum 10 6 Platinum 5 7 Diamond 10 8 Diamond 5 9 Legend 10 As you can see, every player starts with at least two stars bonuses.
      Q: Do you reset MMR each season?
      A: No, we do not.
      Q: Will the value of my previous season’s MMR be exactly same as the new season?
      A: Technically no, although the change will be very small and the “value order” will be kept (Player A whose MMR is larger than player B in the last season will still be ordered as such). Mathematically, a re-normalization process takes place at the start of each season to keep the distribution in a nice bell-shaped curve.
      Q: If I missed one season, will I lose my star bonuses when I return?
      A: No, you won’t.
      Q: If I missed multiple seasons, will I lose star bonuses when I return?
      A: Based on how long you are absent, there will be some small decay applied to your MMR. Therefore, you may (or may not) lose some star bonuses.
      Q: Where do the win steak bonuses end?
      A: Diamond 5.

      Update 17.0 came with a few bugs that need fixing, so Blizzard outlined a hotfix schedule for the next two weeks.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We are currently in the process of putting out a few hotfixes for issues introduced after the 17.0 update. Please note that these fixes take place on the server side, so you should not need to download anything if you’ve updated to 17.0.
      We’ve identified and fixed an issue that could cause the game to fail to offer some eligible players the Returning Player Experience. Affected players should now receive the appropriate quest line when logging into Hearthstone. Whizbang the Wonderful will no longer offer decks with cards that have moved to the Hall of Fame. Kingsbane will now correctly be destroyed and shuffled into your deck when it reaches 0 durability. Living Roots, when disenchanted, now properly gives the amount of dust of a common instead of an epic. However, its gem rarity will not be updated until Monday (3/30). Invoke cards will now no longer appear from cards that generate other cards. Clever Disguise will now correctly function as intended when played. This coming Monday (3/30), we’re planning to deploy a data-only patch that addresses a couple more issues:
      Darkness Awaits will no longer be incorrectly marked as collectible in the Collection. Basic cards will no longer be incorrectly earned from Arena rewards. Living Root’s gem rarity will be corrected from Epic to Common. There are several known issues that will self-resolve on 4/7 when the Demon Hunter and Ashes of Outland unlock:
      Felfin Navigator will correctly appear in the Battlegrounds minion pool. The Battlegrounds Perks button will correctly function as intended when clicked. The new Priest cards will correctly appear in the Arena card pool. Demon Hunter Initiate cards will no longer be granted by completing Galakrond’s Awakening Chapters. Hallucination and Blink Fox will work correctly when played against Demon Hunter in Practice Mode. Curious Glimmerroot will no longer cause client crashes when played against Demon Hunter in Practice Mode. The Search Bar in the Collection will correctly function as intended, and will no longer jump to the top of the screen. Additionally, there are a few Boomsday Project Puzzles that can no longer be completed now because of card changes introduced in 17.0. We’re planning to deploy a fix for Boomsday Project Puzzles on April 9.
      We are investigating several other reports and will keep you posted as we know more. We’d like to thank everyone for their patience while we get some of these bugs squashed!

      Update 17.0 came with free decks for returning players. Blizzard defines a returning player as one who had not logged into the game for four months as of March 17, meaning if you logged into Hearthstone between November 18, 2019 and now, you don't qualify as a returning player and won't receive the Class Deck.
      Blizzard (Source)
      As our new Returning Player Experience went live along with the 17.0 update, we’ve found a few places where we think we can clarify the process and what you can expect.
      To expand upon the eligible time period, we’ve defined a returning player as one who had not logged into Hearthstone for four months as of March 17th, so your last login to Hearthstone needed to be before 11/18/2019 to qualify. If you logged in on or between 11/18/2019 to 3/17/2020, you would not qualify as a returning player and receive the Class Deck.
      If you’re a returning player who has not logged in since before 11/18/2019, to earn your free deck
      Log into Hearthstone and be presented with a new Legendary Quest line, which is made up of three total quests. In the first quest, you will face three bosses made specifically for the quest line. In the final two quests, you will play 30 cards then deal 100 damage to an enemy hero. Upon completing the third and final quest, you will be able to select your free Class Deck once you return to the main menu. If you’re a new player and have not completed the new player ranks,
      Log into Hearthstone and complete the tutorial and the Starter Quest line You will need to graduate from the New Player Ranks (Ranks 50-26) Upon completing these quests, you will be able to select your free Class Deck once you return to the main menu. If you have played Hearthstone before, but either did not complete the tutorial or the New Player Ranks, you will need to do both before receiving the free Class Deck. Note that there’s also a chance you’ll see the Returning Player quests and need to complete those as well.
      As a final note, it is possible that you may not see the deck in your deck list if you did not have an open deck slot when you chose your free Class Deck. If this happens, don’t worry! You will still receive all of the cards from that deck. If you would like to delete one of your existing decks, you can then navigate to this page and use our deck list. From here, copy the deck code, and you can then add the deck to your deck list from within Hearthstone.
      We hope this helps to clarify the experience for everyone! In addition, we are going to keep investigating any potential issues with the returning player decks, and we will provide updates as we learn anything new.
      EDIT 1: Quick update: the team has indeed identified an issue that we know is affecting some players. We're currently investigating the steps needed to fix it. I may not have an update again until tomorrow, but I'll let everyone know what to expect as soon as I know more.
