Staff of Origination(27468).png
Notes
  • Staff of Origination takes 3 turns to charge. Once fully charged, at the start of the turn it will summon one of the random boss minions listed below, but lose its normal Immune effect. The next turn the Staff will return to normal and begin the cycle afresh.

Rummage(27442).png
Rummage(27443).png
Notes
  • The player's standard Hero Power is replaced by Rummage for this encounter.
  • Once the player has used Rummage to receive each of the special cards listed below, using the Hero Power will instead generate a Boom Bot each time.
  • Justicar Trueheart's Battlecry has no effect on Rummage, since it affects only standard Hero Powers.
  • Spells that draw from an opponent's class (such as the Rogue spell Burgle) used against Rafaam will always draw The Coin. Multiple copies can be drawn.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Normal[edit | edit source]

Please add any available information to this section.

The Strategy for this encounter focuses solely on the player's Hero Power Rummage. Its 0-mana cost makes it very effective with Coldarra Drake and even better, all the possible cards generated cost 0 mana. If you manage to obtain Coldarra Drake and Poisoned Blade somehow, (e.g. through an Unstable Portal), you can keep on playing your Hero Power until you get your weapon to have enough attack to kill Rafaam.

Elise Starseeker
We’re searching the museum for useful things. Just call if you need one!

The staff's nearly at its peak. Be ready!

Staff overload

Arch-Thief Rafaam
HAHAHA! POWER OVERWHELMING!

Elise Starseeker
The staff overloaded! Now’s your chance!

I am invincible! You will never defeat me!

Turn 5

Elise Starseeker
The staff is charging again. We’ll have another opportunity in a moment.

His shields are down! Go for it!

The shield’s up again. Be careful!

Special card

Arch-Thief Rafaam
I have collected artifacts from HUNDREDS of worlds!
Artifacts
Boom Bot

Eye of Orsis
Reno: Funny. This was still in my pocket – I guess you can borrow it.

Khadgar's Pipe
Elise: Catch! But don’t tell Brann; he loves this pipe!
Shard of Sulfuras
Reno: This was in a box marked "DO NOT OPEN". So...yeah. Good luck!

Ysera's Tear
Elise: A sacred artifact of my people. Drink it quickly!
Putress' Vial
Elise: It says “DRINK ME”, but we found it in Naxxramas, so no one’s wanted to try.
