Showdown at Blackrock Mountain

These two epic bosses of Blackrock Mountain are settling things once and for all... with your help!

How It Works

This brawl features a battle between two bosses of Blackrock Mountain: Ragnaros the Firelord & Nefarian. Which boss you play as is determined randomly after you queue up. In the first iteration it was very unbalanced and you would often see Ragnaros concede immediately. It has been adjusted multiple times since it's inception.

Ragnaros begins with the hero power Molten Rage and the weapon Sulfuras, not to be confused with the quest reward version Sulfuras from Fire Plume's Heart. When all the durability is used, the hero power becomes DIE, INSECT!.

Nefarian begins with a 30 armor on top of his health total and uses the hero power Wild Magic to generate many spells. He also begins with a extra mana, however the number has been reduced from the original 5 for balance reasons.

Though the decks have been modified to make the brawl more enjoyable for both players, there are numerous special cards that return each time. You can find them below:

    I feel like I've seen this more than five times, but based on this the fifth one was a few months ago.
