Hearthstone Atramedes

9 posts in this topic

are Artramedes and Omnotron the same character?  I haven't gotten that far yet, but I just thought I'd point this error out because it's kinda confusing if you haven't done it yet. 

 

 

Atramedes is the third boss of the Hidden Laboratory, the fifth and final wing of Blackrock Mountain. In this guide, you will learn how to use cheap decks to defeat Omnotron in both Normal and Heroic modes.

This fight reminded me of Patchwerk in the Naxxramas adventure. So the obvious choice is Mage in order to freeze Atramedes.

I was very successful with a variant the new Flamewaker deck:

2x Ice Lance
2x Mana Wyrm
2x Mirror Image
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Flamecannon
2x Frostbolt
2x Loot Hoarder
2x Snowchugger
2x Sorcerer's Apprentice
2x Unstable Portal
2x Arcane Intellect
2x Flamewaker
2x Fireball
2x Jeeves
2x Water Elemental
 

With this deck the fight was done in the first try! O_o I didn't even mind Flamewaker popping those eggs because of the enormous power of this deck. :D

These are the cheapest decks I beat Heroic Atramedes with.

Atramedes' deck is relatively easy to deal with as it contains no unfair cards. The biggest threat in this fight is his weapon, which must repeatedly be destroyed or frozen to stay alive.

F2P Priest (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration:



2x Northshire Cleric
2x Power Word: Shield
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Divine Spirit
2x Murloc Tidehunter
2x Shadow Word: Pain
2x Razorfen Hunter
2x Shadow Word: Death
2x Shattered Sun Cleric
2x Dragonkin Sorcerer
2x Hungry Dragon
2x Blackwing Corruptor
2x Holy Nova
1x Emperor Thaurissan
2x Stormwind Champion
1x Chromaggus

Buff Dragonkin Sorcerer.

Only play Hungry Dragon, if you can deal with the 1-drop.

2x Fireball
2x Hungry Dragon
2x Polymorph
2x Water Elemental
1x Emperor Thaurissan
1x Flamestrike
1x Stormwind Champion

Use Water Elemental to freeze Atramedes.
Use Mirror Image to protect Water Elemental.
Only play Arcane Missiles to trigger Flamewaker.
Use Frost Nova to stall and trigger Flamewaker until turn 7 and Flamestrike.
Use Fireball to kill Emperor Thaurissan and Twilight Drake.

Since you will have have acquired Chromaggus from your previous victory in this dungeon, you could put him in the basic deck in place of Stormwind Champion. With Chromaggus's ability you will have an unlimited supply of the cards Atramedes gives you to destroy his weapon. The game should be no pressure after that.

Chromaggus doesn't work like that, he only duplicates cards that are drawn from your deck.

My problem is not his weapon, it is that every turn he can swarm multiple minions on the  board, so it is impossible to get board control, so he will just kill you with his minions, his weapon is unnecessary.

My first attempt at Heroic Atramedes was successful, using my Silence druid.

I played a Zombie Chow on T1, and I just attacked with that and my hero power until T4. This kept his weapon from growing. I suppose I was lucky though. He didn't play anything until coining out a Dark Iron Dwarf on T3. I got my Fel Reaver out on T5. Atramedes nearly milled me before I finally silenced Fel Reaver at the end. Of course, at that point it didn't matter. One Savage Roar did him in at T9...and I scraped by with 1 health left. Whew! (Oh, I know I had lethal without playing Wailing Soul, but I couldn't risk Ogre Brute attacking one of the minions. Silencing the ogre made sure that he would go face! smile.png )

 

I admit that this wasn't the best option for beating Atramedes. I didn't even have any weapon destruction. I think the fact that I was successful on my first attempt using this deck goes to show that this is one of the easier bosses.

      Iksar has confirmed that the Matchmaking in Legend Ranks has been changed.
      As stated in our previous article, Legendary players have been noticing that in the last few days that they have been matched with players much closer to their own rank than usual. There was some confusion regarding this, as Iksar had not been made aware of the changes, but he has now confirmed that there are definitely changes in place.
      It is hard to precisely evaluate community feeling on the the new system, especially as I personally think they're a step in the right direction, but there are some players who are not keen on the changes. RayC and Xzirez have been the two highest profile players so far to disagree with the change. The issues that people against it have can be summarised as follows: Counter-Queuing: Many top Legends do not like counter-queuing, which is where you change your deck to try to counter your opponent. With the new system meaning you can often play the same person several times in a row, counter-queuing will become an important part of the game.
      Early Legend Advantage: People opposed to the changes claim that it overly favours the players who reach Legend early on. The older system made it easier to catch up at the end of the season.
      Win Trading: Due to the increased chance of playing against the same opponent, it is now easier to cover your tracks if you lose to a friend many times in a row to boost their ranking.
      There does seem to be a majority of players who support the new system however. The ladder system has been a cause of much debate for a long time now, and these changes, alongside the recent addition of ladder floors, seem to show that at the very least, ladder is currently a high priority for Blizzard to get right.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour continues this weekend, with the focus shifting to the Asia-Pacific region. In this article I have introduced some of the players, and listed their deck archetypes.
      The APAC region is often regarded as the weakest region, and with some justification. However, although the region lacks a little in depth, the best players are definitely world class. Not only that, but the rest of the pack is rapidly improving, and it would be very negligent to ignore the region in 2017. Staz, from The Philippines recently won the $150,000 first prize at a stacked WESG, which marked the first major tournament won by the region. The top players will be looking to keep the rest of the world on notice, with some high quality play this weekend.
      Below I have listed a few of the key players, along with notes and deck archetypes.
        CaraCute: Tempo Mage, Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      CaraCute has been touted by both NeilYo and Staz as having a good chance, and since those comments were made, she has come through the Tavern Hero Qualifier to take her place in the main Swiss. She learned her trade at Guildhouse Fireside gatherings, the same Fireside gatherings where caster Jia Dee also rose through the ranks.
        Che0nsu: Jade Druid, Miracle Rogue, Mid Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      Che0nsu made his name by first winning the Last Call qualifier, and then building on that to finish top four in the World Championship at BlizzCon. 
        ChongGEr: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Reno Warrior
      ChongGer is one of the most consistent performers in the South-East Asia scene. He came fourth in the Singapore Major, third in the Thai Major, and second in the Malaysia Major, where he lost two matches in the final to a player he had already beaten in the upper bracket! He also placed consistently high in the preliminaries last year. 
         GundamFlame: Tempo Mage, Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      GundanFlame impressed observers in the Japan Summer Championship with his understanding of aggressive play. His understanding of when to ease off the pedal, and when to go all-in, won him the national title. It is no surprise that his lineup for the Playoffs is an aggressive one.

        HandomeGuy (pictured above): Aggro Rogue, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      HandsomeGuy is regarded as the man to beat whenever he steps foot in an APAC tournament. He finished in second place in the APAC Winter Championship, and that proved to be his worst result, as he went on to win both the Spring and Summer Championships.
        Kranich: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman (shown below), Reno Warlock, Dragon Warrior
      Kranich played in both the 2014, and 2015 World Championships, finishing top four and top eight respectively. Due to this, and the fact that he was a member of Team Dignitas before they withdrew from Hearthstone, he is one of the best known APAC players in the West. He is not scared to put his own stamp on decks, his RenoLock contains Doomguard and Krul the Unshackled, while his Shaman deck is slower than most Aggro Shamans, and leans towards midrange.

        NaviOOT: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      NaviOOT has built a strong reputation on the back of relentless top 100 finishes, and a consistently popular stream. In recent months he has turned his attention more and more to the tournament scene, making the trip to the Malaysia Open, in which he placed top 8. He has also stated that he will be travelling to DreamHack Austin, which is coming up soon. He managed top four at last Winter's APAC Championship, and is a genuine contender in 2017.
       Pinpingho: Tempo Mage, Mid Shaman, Reno Warlock, Water Warrior
      Pinpingho finished top eight in the 2015 World Championship. He was known for being one of the strongest Shaman players, back before Shaman was regarded as a playable class, so it will be interesting to see how a does now! He qualified for two APAC Championship events in 2016, and so is no stranger to these events.
        Surrender: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      Although he is yet to have a big win, Surrender is highly regarded in the community and has numerous good results. He already had Xixo as a playtest partner, and has recently joined Counter Logic Gaming, along with Xixo and Hoej. He will be as well prepared as anyone for this event.
        Tom60229: Reno Mage, Aggro Shaman, Reno Warlock, Pirate Warrior
      One of the most accomplished players in the field, Tom60229 has shown consistent results since the dawn of Hearthstone. His most recent tournament win was the Malaysia Major, but also had good success on the 2015 ONOG Tour. His worldwide tournament experience will stand him in good stead in this event.
       
      The event begins at 3am CET on Saturday 25 February, and coverage will be on the official PlayHearthstone Twitch channel.

      For the past few days, top players have been discussing the pros and cons of the new MMR change at Legend Ranks. The only problem being, that Game Designer, Iksar, isn't aware of a change.
      There are far fewer Legendary players than usual this season, and as such things might feel a little different to the players, but the sample size across many streams and thousands of games of Hearthstone seems to point to the changing of the matchmaking system. It has been accepted by most that the system has changed so that you only play opponents in a very narrow band, rather than the previous system where you could be matched with someone with a wildly different Legend Rank.
      That alone might not have been enough evidence, but players are also queuing into the same opponent multiple times, to the point that they are having to play mind games on which deck to queue.

      Hoej independently witnessed the same thing, and went to Twitter to check that he was not alone. Several Legendary players agreed that the system has been changed, and people began to discuss what they thought of the changes.
      Placeholder for tweet 834430686325067776 The majority of players like the new matchmaking, although several did voice concerns that the new system heavily favours the players who reach Legend Rank early in the season. Just as the debate was getting interesting, Iksar dropped his bombshell:
        At this point there are several options, and all seem unlikely. Either the entire community is suffering from some kind of huge matchmaking fluctuation, Blizzard have made a major change without informing Iksar, or there is a bug which most people preferred to the actual game. Whatever happens, the reply when Iksar has investigated is sure to be interesting!

      Blizzard have announced that the next update will contain big changes to the way Arena works.
      The newly announced changes will come into force at the same time as the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, which we discussed previously.
      The most important change will be that Arena will change from Wild format to Standard. This will help to keep Arena feeling fresh, as well as make sure that card synergies can be drafted more easily.
      Changes have also been made to the distribution of cards. Common and Basic cards will show up less often, and the frequency of spells and class cards being offered has been raised. The full discussion can be found in the announcement link above, but the main reasoning is to allow players to have more opportunities to outdraft and outplay their opponents, rather than just playing the game on curve.
      This philosophy will have some implications in Standard too. If Blizzard are actively trying to reduce the impact of playing on curve in Arena, this could mean that they will carry over the same thoughts into constructed play. I feel that moving away from the style, unaffectionately known as Curvestone, would be good for the game. The changes will almost certainly be welcomed in the Arena community, and it is good to see Blizzard making them now, rather than waiting for the next set to launch.

      Im making a telegram bot that can send you new decks and news from https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone.
      It already can send some decks and filter them by class and deck format.
      Im going to open bot for all users in next few weeks. 
      Any suggestions?
