Yesterday, Kripparrian earned the attention of the Hearthstone community by completing an outstanding achievement: he won 106 games in 10 Arena runs!

You might have heard of the 100 in 10 Arena challenge, originally created by Amaz, the owner of Team Archon. The first person to beat it was TwoBiers back in March with his run of 103 games in 10 Arena keys. Afterwards, Twitch and Archon partnered up and made the challenge into an official monthly competition. While it wasn’t widely publicised, another Arena player, Mef, was the second player to complete this challenge two weeks ago – with exactly 100 wins in 10 runs, 9 classes and even a couple of disconnects! Lastly, 23 days ago Woett achieved 202 wins in 20 consecutive Arena runs, a truly insane feat which was recognised by Hearthstone devs on Reddit.

Obviously, most of you know Kripparrian, who isn’t only a popular streamer, but has also earned some significant achievements in other games (like World of Warcraft, Diablo III, Path of Exile and Guild Wars 2). Kripparrian’s popularity rose significantly when he started playing and streaming Hearthstone, while he’s also considered one of the best Arena players in the world.

Kripparrian has stated in the past that he wasn’t going to pursue the official 100 in 10 challenge and yesterday’s triumph was just a personal achievement. Indeed, he only played with 6 classes (Warlock, Rogue, Mage, Shaman, Warrior and Paladin), while the challenge’s rules state that the player should always pick a class that he/she hasn’t played yet.

Still, Kripparrian technically beat the 100 wins in 10 Arena runs part of the whole challenge, since he actually achieved 101 victories in 9 runs (with the total score being 106 in 10). An amazing fact is that for the first 7 runs he had a streak of 12 wins each run! Then, in his 8th run he had a 5-3, followed by another 12-win run and then another 5-3 on his 10th and last run. Here are the lists for his eight 12-win decks:

Kripparrian also completed another personal achievement during his 106 in 10 (or 101 in 9) streak. He achieved a score of 12-0 with all classes in Arena. Warrior was the last class he needed and he succeeded in doing a 12-0 with it during his 4th Arena run. Kripp posted a video about his experience:

You can watch a vod of Kripp’s last 3 runs here. To sum up, while he wasn’t officially participating in the 100 in 10 challenge, Kripparian has set the bar quite high for all other Arena players. We are eager to see what other challenge he will set for himself in the future!

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
