It's well known that the Heroic versions of Hearthstone's adventures pose a problem to many players, hardcore and casual alike. Heck, some of us never even completed Blackrock Mountain's wings on the highest difficulty. That said, we're here to provide you with some decklists, tips, tricks, and warn you about some things each of the bosses will throw your way. If you're interested in playing them without any outside knowledge, now would be the time to stop reading.

Back to TopUldaman Heroic Guide

This week our efforts are headed up by Brann Bronzebeard, brother to our Warrior friend Magni Bronzebeard. This week's encounters have us dealing with some troublesome troggs, surviving on a speeding mine cart, and dealing with some animated statues.

Back to TopChieftain Scarvash Heroic

Scarvash starts the fight with 30 Health and 15 Armor but he also has a Burly Rockjaw Trogg and a Stonesplinter Trogg on the field. On the first turn his hero power makes minions cost 11 mana, making them
unplayable. This alternates every other turn meaning on odd turns you can only cast spells
and on even you can only cast minions.

You're going to want a deck that can play minions and spells on an alternating basis and still be very powerful.

Back to TopMine Cart Rush Heroic

In this challenge your deck is premade out of cards such as Mechanical Parrot, Boom!, Repairs, Dynamite, Spiked Decoy and Barrel Forward. Surviving nine full turns is your only concern and not only will you need to have the right draws, but you'll have to make the right decisions as throughout the game you only have two mana and each card costs one mana to play!

Mine Cart Rush Heroic Hero Power

Looks like their is no specific turn order, rather the hero power randomly selects from a bunch of possibilities. Here's what we've found so far:

Back to TopTips and Recommendations

  • A huge part of this encounter is RNG. Sometimes there's simply nothing you could have done to win.
  • Make sure you have a board presence. Without the option to trade, even Boom! can only do so much.
  • Sneak in healing and card draws when you can, a huge part of this challenge is knowing what your best move is.
  • Try only clearing Lumbering Golems and Earthen Pursuers. A board full of Chasing Troggs is ideal.
