Welcome back to This Week in Blackrock Mountain. This week we take a look at the 4th wing: Blackwing Lair. There are 4 bosses in this wing. Should be fun!
The fun starts out with Razorgore the Untamed. His hero power: for 1 mana summon a 0/1 Corrupted Egg.
I started out with my mage. After 2 tries, I had to switch to my hunter. After the Egg gets to 4 health it hatches into a 7/3 dragon.
Razorgore no more.
Revenge Reward. This 2 mana spell deals 1 damage to all minions; if you have 12 or less health, deal 3 damage instead.
Vaelastrasz the Corrupt. His hero power: for 0 mana, both players draw 2 cards. Shenanigans ahead.
Started up with my mage deck but had too many high mana cards. Decided to make a rogue deck for this special occasion.
Flamewaker Reward. The Flamewaker is a 2/4 Mage minion with an interesting ability: After you cast a spell, deal 2 damage randomly split among all enemies.
Chromaggus. His hero power: for 0 mana add a Brood Afflicion card to your opponents hand. Hijinks ensue.
The Brood Affliction card is an interesting mechanic. There are at least 4 different ones. This one restores 2 health to your opponent at the start of your turn. It costs 1 mana to play (get rid of) and counts as a spell. Enjoy!
I had to switch to my Warlock deck to dispatch Chromaggus. It still felt good though.
Hungry Dragon reward. The Hungry Dragon is a 5/6 minion with a Battlecry: Give your opponent a random 1-cost minion. An interesting card for 4 mana.
Lord Victor Nefarius. His hero power: for 1 mana: Let the games begin!
There are games aplenty. Nefarius, aptly named–reveals his true nature: 30 armor, infinite mana (capped at 10) and a hero power that adds a random spell of your opponents class for 1 mana.
Thankfully, Ragnaros cheats for us. It’s probably over-the-top. Living Lava is one of several cards he gives you that cost 0 mana. This one is a 6/6 minion with Taunt.
Nefarius cries as he is defeated. It was so easy with Ragnaros’ help–I took no damage.
Fireguard Destroyer Reward. This is a 3/6 Shaman minion with a Battlecry: Gain 1-4 attack. Overload (1).
Chromaggus Legendary reward. This is a 6/8 Legendary minion with an ability: Whenever you draw a card, put another copy into your hand. Prepare to see this one a lot.
Clearing Blackwing Lair also unlocks the Warlock and Rogue Class Challenges.
I took out the Warlock Class challenge without incident. It got pretty crazy at the end, actually. I had my side of the board full for most of the game.
Demonwrath reward. Demonwrath is a Warlock spell that deals 2 damage to all non-Demon minions. Sounds neat for 3 mana.
Rogue Class Challenge was pretty easy too. I’m not 100% but it seemed like I was getting more than 2 of each card. At least Gang UP. Ended up stuffing 6 copies of Van Cleef away for safe keeping. As you can see, the fight only lasted 6 rounds.
Dark Iron Skulker reward. The Dark Iron Skulker is a 4/3 Rogue minion with a Battlecry that does 2 damage to all undamaged enemy minions. Pretty powerful if you ask me. Kind of like a Consecration that leaves behind a 4/3 minion. I got plans for this one.
Four wings down. One wing left to go. See you guys next week for the final installment of This Week in Blackrock Mountain!
