Icy Veins Updated for the Last 2 Wings of Naxx

We are a little bit late, but our guide coverage for the Curse of Naxxramas is finally complete. We used to have one guide per wing (for the first 3 wings), but we decided to split these and have one guide per boss, so we have a total of 15 boss guides and 9 guides for class challenges, which you will find in the Solo menu of our Hearthstone section. As always, we hope that you will find these guides useful!

We are back from GamesCom!

We are now back from GamesCom, our heads filled with awesome memories. The event was much more intense than we thought it would be. As a result, we did not find the time to report live from the convention center. We did not even manage to work on the website from our hotel, because the internet there was really bad (lesson learnt for next year). So, we apologize for the lack of "live" content and the delay in releasing the Curse of Naxxramas guides for last week's wing. That said, we still wanted to share what we experienced there, especially since, as a fansite, we were able to purchase Trade Visitor tickets and access the business areas, which are closed to the general public.

Hearthstone Recap: Military Quarter and ``Watch and Learn with'' Series

With the exception of the release of the Military Quarter of the Curse of Naxxramas, this week has been pretty calm on the Hearthstone front. As we always do when new content is released, we rush to test it and create guides to help whoever may need guidance, and you will find these guides under the Solo tab in our Hearthstone section's menu.

Blizzard seems to have started featuring popular streamers and Youtubers in their new Watch and Learn with series. This week, Amaz and Trump were featured.
