Mother Fang – Elwynn Forest – Heroic Mission Guide

What are Heroic Missions?

Heroic missions are missions unlocked upon obtaining 50 sigils. They need to be cleared once per faction, so aim to get at least one leader per faction as you progress through the game. The heroic missions are more difficult than their non-heroic counterparts, often employing a gimmick on the map or featuring an initial push that you need to defend.

Why do Heroic Missions?

Clearing a heroic mission rewards you with 3 tomes of experience for your troops as well as a sigil upon completing it once. You need to clear them 4 more times, each with different leaders from the remaining factions. Upon clearing them, you receive 300 coins for your efforts. It is quite rewarding and will be your main source of income in the end game.

How to Clear

Your main objective here is to gain control of the bridge by activating the meeting stone located there. You can utilize the whelps to expedite this process while providing defense against melee minis on the bridge simultaneously. Your next task is to deny the enemy gold. There are two gold mines near Mother Fang. Deploy your Dark Iron Miner there while safeguarding it with Quilboar and a S.A.F.E. Pilot . Once you have control of the resources, deploy your Darkspear Troll on the bridge so that they can freely strike Mother Fang. Additionally, you can stun the boss with Defias Bandits while your army marches towards it. Overall, this isn't as challenging as dealing with Goldtooth. The strategy should work with any leader. If your leader isn't a tank, consider placing a Stonehoof Tauren to replace one of the minis.
