The rules of gameplay in Gwent Rogue Mage are slightly different from those you may know from Gwent Witcher Card Game.

Build your deck wisely

When building a deck in Gwent Rogue Mage, avoid adding random cards that will have no use - Gwent Rogue Mage: Beginners guide - Basics - Gwent Rogue Mage Guide

When building a deck in Gwent Rogue Mage, avoid adding random cards that will have no use. Think about what strategy you want to take, and choose the cards in accordance with selected approach. Remember that by adding a large number of cards to the deck, you reduce the probability of drawing key units/spells at the beginning of the game and getting the right synergy.

There are a lot of cards in Gwent Rogue Mage, as well as treasures and artifacts, so experiment with different combinations. Not all combinations will work properly, but this will give you the necessary knowledge of the mechanics of Gwent Rogue Mage and you will be able to use this in further sessions with the game.

It is worth having at least one card that can neutralize, silence or destroy the enemy's reinforced units in each deck.

Plan a path to the Boss

The main goal of Gwent Rogue Mage is to reach the Boss located at the very end of the map. It is worth planning the path you will take to properly strengthen your deck before the final battle. Along the way, you may encounter various Events, Places of Power, treasure chests, as well as more difficult elite opponents - if you don't feel up to it, sometimes it's better to avoid such a duel than to risk defeat just before the end of the expedition.

Think about which reward to choose

Learn to manage Energy

Energy in Gwent Rogue Mage allows players to use spells, but it is also used for other purposes - Gwent Rogue Mage: Beginners guide - Basics - Gwent Rogue Mage Guide

Energy in Gwent Rogue Mage allows players to use spells, but it is also used for other purposes:

  1. When selecting new cards for the deck after winning a duel (you can do a re-roll).
  2. While going through random Events on the map.

Before you completely use up Energy, think carefully about whether you will quickly reach a point on the map that will allow you to regain some of this resource (Event, Place of Power).

Visit Places of Power

  3. Green Places of Power strengthen the selected unit by 3 points.
