Introduced in the Kobolds and Catacombs expansion will be a new single-player game mode called Dungeon Run. This article looks into what that is, and how it will work.

The new mode is build to be replayable, which is to say that it should hold your interest for a long time. There are 48 unique encounters in Dungeon Run, as well as a huge number of new cards that are used just in this mode. The mode is completely free of charge.

You start with a small deck from your class of choice, and battle against a series of increasingly difficult bosses. Each time you defeat a boss, you gain treasure in the form of cards exclusive to Dungeon Runs. This treasure should help you to battle the next boss in line. However, should you lose a single battle, your run is over and you will have to start from scratch!

Some of the available treasure is shown below:

As you can see, some of the treasure is both full of flavour, and rather powerful.

In fact, okay, most of it is rather powerful

With items this powerful, it is going to be interesting to see how powerful the different bosses end up being. Remember, if you can complete the run with all nine classes, you will receive the Candle King cardback pictured below.

After the release of Dungeon Runs, Icy Veins will have guides on how to get the most from your adventure.

That sounds very interesting!

Especially since you won't need to have a costly deck to play it - it seems like something new and exciting for everyone :)

With all the treasure cards and hint they should have added to get some gold (even if it's just a little bit) out of the solo adventures ;)

But I am eager to see and play it anyway :)

Watched some of it on twitch... Really disappointing with the difficulty progression. Starting with trivially easy bosses is an awful design choice. No good roguelike would do that. They are forcing players to do very boring part before going to real challenge.

And no "treasure" besides a card (I never really cared about them, they are barely visible by yourself :D ).

Ofc we should wait and see how it is but if it's not incredibly fun and nothing else as reward why would I play that? :D

I just tried out Marin. First against a friend just to see what gives. Then I played a normal game. jade Druid against a Control Warrior.

I lost one Jade Idol due to a full hand. I had one card remaining in my deck, obviously the 2nd Jade Idol.

I got this from the treasure chest :D

Oh and I only had one other card in hand when I casted Tolin's Goblet.

Nice first game with Marin :)

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
