Overview

A Nightmare of War is the first chapter in the four-part event series, A Journey Through History, launched in May 2018 with the Dominaria set. Each chapter is run as a Standard PvE weekday event, typically with two events being run in the same week.

Unlike other single-player events without charges, winning on a node you've already beaten continues to earn ribbons, so it is possible to collect all rewards simply by repeating the first opponent.
