For those who didn't catch the Twitch, it was mentioned that every one of 40x dungeons to be released at launch are going to have 2x distinct different modes--a Normal & a Heroic

Heroic Mode: Capped at 1x of each card in a deck instead of 4x.

I love it!!!

It's Highlander baby.

Also, drops don't change, but Heroic is how you get the cosmetic stuff.

also iirc they said that they would have the same drops but the heroic ones would be prettier or shinier or something.

This is very cool. 1 of each card is going to make things very difficult.

Early on especially.

I wonder if they will have hard mode raids

Zomg...

Hmm... heroic mode certainly would be difficult.

From what I've been reading, PvE is designed around the crazy possibilities with equipment. With only one of each card, the effect of equipment is significantly reduced.

Regardless, challenge accepted.

I am so excited about the EDH PvE mode. :D And I thought I was only going to play PvP!

It looks like EDH mode just might have got primal out of me....

What is EDH?

Elder Dragon Highlander... Means one of each card other than basic resources in your deck... no multiples allowed

To elaborate on EDH, it's a variant of MtG that was originally named after a cycle of cards, the Elder Dragons, from one of the very early Magic sets. As mentioned, one of the most important aspects of this format was the requirement to only play a single copy of any card, excluding basic lands. The format became very popular because of the high variability present in the decks.

Thanks BossHoss and thank you very much facade. My next question was going to be about the relevance of "Elder Dragons" so once again thanks facade. :)

Really cool concept! Technically they call them "Legendary Mode" not Heroic, but I guess there is a lot of WoW players here. :)

Just for technicality sake, the mode in the heroic/hard mode dungeons will be highlander. EDH (Elder Dragon Highlander) is when you also choose a commander, which is a legendary creature (or in the case of Hex, a unique troop) that exists in a zone that usually goes unused, and can be cast from there if you have enough mana for it (there are other rules, but that's the basic gist). Highlander itself doesn't involve having a commander; it's just singleton Magic. ;-)

They also promised a 100% free glitter undead experience, so no shining bonuses for undead xD

You never know, maybe he will start dripping blood on board leaving scarlet traces after each attack.

My understanding was that Highlander (1 of each card in your deck) was an EXAMPLE of a heroic mode and that the dungeons will have different heroic modes.

Am I correct or am I the only one interpreting it that way?

Different heroic modes could be fun. I don't think anything's set in stone at this point, even if they confirmed that one way or the other.
