Strategy[edit | edit source]

Archmage Khadgar, being the final boss of The Dalaran Heist is a grand challenge to surmount and will truly test the deck you've been building up to this point.

The Kirin Tor Elementals' ability to recast spells will become overbearing if you allow it, prioritize killing them above all else, specially considering he has the means to make duplicates of them using Molten Reflection and Echo of Medivh, which will cast *again* creating even more Kirin Tor Elementals, quickly spiraling out of control. Thankfully, these minions have rather small stats and Khadgar doesn't have ways to buff them outside of the Bananas created by Banana Bufoon, giving you the opportunity to destroy them with waveclear, single-target spells or trade with them using your own minions before they become an issue.

If there are larger issues to deal with, such as Malygos, change priorities but try and destroy as many Kirin Tor Elementals as you can.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Khadgar is perhaps the most accomplished of all living wizards and one of the most powerful magi in Azerothian history. He was an apprentice to the Guardian Medivh, until he helped defeat his possessed master. Though cursed with frailty and age, Khadgar nevertheless has been an exemplar for the Alliance, destroying the Dark Portal in the Second War, leading the Alliance Expedition to Draenor, and counterattacking against the Burning Legion and all who would threaten his world with annihilation.
While a hero of the Alliance, Khadgar is willing to work with the Horde for the greater good of Azeroth. As a member of the Council of Six, Khadgar hopes to drive the politics out of the Kirin Tor, and has been known to clash with the more partisan members of the council.
