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.

- Two Ogres on each lane throw barrels down the lane. They switch places when they run out of barrels (5) to throw giving you an opportunity to mount an attack.
On death, split into two smaller Earth Elementals.
Dark Iron Miner
For swiftly mining gold from the mines without the risk of being hit by barrels.
|Dark Iron Armaments |
After Mining, gain Armored.
|Gold Mine BEST|
After Mining, drop a proximity mine. Damages nearby enemies when touched.
|Dwarven Ambition |
Flying minis can't be hit by barrels, making Harpies a great choice to inflict damage on the Dockmaster. They also excel against the Molten Giant and Earth Elemental . Ensure their protection from the Pyromancer and Firehammer by using the S.A.F.E. Pilot and Quiboar .
|Infectious Swipes BEST|
Gain the Miner trait. Cost increased by 1.
Deal double damage on 1st attack.
The S.A.F.E. Pilot can target enemy ranged minions such as the Pyromancer and Firehammer . Additionally, she can prevent the enemy from collecting gold by eliminating the kobold before it mines. She can also crash into the Dockmaster to inflict direct damage. Overall, a versatile minion to bring into the fight and can be included in any deck.
|Gnomish Cloaking Device BEST|
Deploy from the explosion with Stealth and Ambush.
|Comin’ In Hot!|
Deploy twice as fast and Burn nearby enemies.
Polymorph the first blaster target.
Quilboar, similar to the S.A.F.E. Pilot , can target the troublesome backline minions, clearing the path for your Harpies to inflict damage on the Dockmaster. You can also deploy the Quilboar to divert the boss's attention while your army closes the gap. Simply position the Quilboar behind the Dockmaster.
Deal a small amount of damage to Melee attackers.
|Tunnel Vision BEST|
Deploy much more quickly.
Inflict Poison on nearby enemies when emerging.
Effective for striking the Dockmaster within the damage windows. It works best when equipped with the poison talent, allowing it to deal damage even after it's deceased.
|Big Bad Voodoo BEST|
Regenerate 10% health every second.
On kill, increase Attack and Movement speed by 10%. Stacks to 50%.
Similar to the Harpies , the Gryphon Rider is immune to being hit by the barrels and can inflict significant damage to the Dock Master without needing to get extremely close to it.
Periodically drop a potion, Leveling Up the first ally to touch it.
|Mighty Throw BEST|
Gain +3 Range.
This deck works with any leader, so you don't have to worry about customizing it for each leader.
How to Clear
Your main goal here is to secure the Meeting Stone on the right lane to gain access to the Gold Mine there. However, if you have the Dark Iron Miner in your deck, that won't be a priority since you can simply deploy him near the mine. The Ogres drop five barrels before they walk and switch, so utilize that window to deploy your army near the meeting stone.
Alternatively, you can send flying minis like Harpies and Gryphon Riders down the lanes toward the Dockmaster. They aren't affected by the barrels, but be cautious of anti-air minions like Pyromancer and Firehammer . Ensure you have the S.A.F.E. Pilot or Quilboar ready to prevent them from targeting and killing your flying minis.
