Rise of Shadows: The Great Dalaran Heist

So the first instalment of the new singleplayer content is out as of Thursday. It's like Dungeon Run, but more. It's very good.

My only complaint is that it's a little bit too easy on Heroic. (Normal is a cakewalk, but that's expected.) That could be just because it's chapter 1, though.

It does seem easier than usual. I'm not that good, and even I beat it on my second try (normal skill level). (I wanted to keep that deck with the treasures. it was fun.)

PS: The guy who "occationally gives helpful advice" is awesome.

I assume they found that Dungeon Run & Monster Hunt were too hard for casual players. Heroic difficulty is comparable to DR & MH. Normal difficulty is much easier, going by the one run I did in it to unlock chapter 1 heroic.

And the wisdomball is amusing yeah. I don't know if it's pure random or detects when you're in trouble. It once gave me an extra turn when the boss had lethal on board, which allowed me to win.

I don't know if I got lucky in my initial heroic runs or whether there's some mechanic to unlock harder bosses after you've played a bit, but, either way, heroic has become a lot harder for me. I'm now in an awkward situation where normal is too easy and heroic is too hard.

I think this mode (as did the modes before it) suffers from not having a mechanic that allows the player to smooth over bumps in the difficulty. For example, a persistent health mechanic does that in many games. Other consumable resources could work too.
