Hero Powers

In a similar way to the Dalaran Heist from Rise of Shadows, Tombs of Terror will allow you to choose a Hero Power unique to the game’s single-player modes. Here are the Hero Powers currently available:

Reno Jackson

  • Amateur Mage: Deal 1 damage. Combo: 2 instead (2 mana)
  • ”Relicologist”: Your next spell this turn has Spell Damage +2 (0 mana)
  • Arcane Craftiness: Fire two missiles that deal 1 damage each. If any minion dies, repeat this (2 mana)

  • Power Up!: Give a minion Divine Shield and Windfury (2 mana)

Elise Starseeker

  • Elise's Might: Choose One - +2 Attack this turn; or Gain 2 Armor (2 mana)
  • Starseeker: Passive Hero Power: After you cast 2 spells in a turn, add a 'Moonfire' to your hand/
  • Druidic Teaching: Restore 2 Health, then draw a card if the target is at full Health (2 mana)

Raid bosses

The Plague Lord bosses are the main attraction of the Tombs of Terror. Physical manifestations of the various Plague spells brought about by the League of E.V.I.L., these terrifying bosses will take the form of raid bosses, with enormous health totals and changing forms that’ll become more and more dangerous as you whittle them down.

Never fear though! If you get wiped out by a boss, you can always give it another go, and the damage you’ve dealt so far will remain.

We’ll keep this page updated with our top tips to overcome these massive monsters too, so if you’re struggling then our boss guides will be all here!

Our boss guides are out now and being updated as we know more. We’ve currently got Vesh, Plague Lord of Murlocs and K’zrath, Plague Lord of Madness guides, so check them out if you’re having trouble!

What's the Tombs of Terror release schedule?

The first two chapters of Tombs of Terror are out now, having released at 6pm BST on Tuesday 17th September. Future chapters will roll out post-launch. Chapter 3 comes out on Tuesday 24th September, and chapter 4 alongside the Finale will drop on Tuesday 1st October.

  • Chapter 1 & 2: Tuesday 17th September
  • Chapter 3: Tuesday 24th September
  • Chapter 4 & Finale: Tuesday 1st October

Tombs of Terror Price

The pre-order price is £16.99, and after the first two chapters go live, the standard Adventure will be available at a lower price, without the Card Back and random Legendary minion included. Each individual chapter can be purchased for 700 in-game gold after the adventure releases.

Story Theories

The Tombs of Terror reveal has got fans speculating on Reddit on what the Year of the Dragon’s trilogy could bring. As Saviors of Uldum is the middle chapter, many are expecting some exciting twists and turns to take place. A comment from Reddit user captaintelescopio led to many predicting that Rafaam, the League of E.V.I.L.’s Arch-Villain and leader, would make a shock face turn and join the League of Explorers. After all, his Warlock class is the only one not given a space in the adventure’s dual-class heroes, and honestly he does seem like more of an easygoing guy than the more sinister members of the League of E.V.I.L. like Madame Lazul.

That’s all we’ve got for now. Keep an eye out for the info you need - we’ll have some guides ready as soon as we dive into the crypts, so check back if you need a helping hand!
