Kobolds and Catacombs: Dungeon Run Information

Recommended Posts

XZMKWcj.png

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 :)

Watch for 2 more hours and you’ll receive another one! Twitch has updated how drops work on their end, and this is Hearthstone’s first time utilizing Twitch Drops since these changes were put into place. Here is what you need to know:
      You’ll now be able to see your watch time progress towards any given drop. You will no longer receive drop rewards automatically. You must instead claim the drop on the channel you’re watching or in the Drops Inventory menu on Twitch within the first 24 hours of earning it.  You will need to claim your first Twitch Drop reward BEFORE you can earn progress towards a second. Twitch users can now earn rewards before linking their Battle.net account to Twitch. Rewards will expire 7 days after they’ve been claimed if a Battle.net account has not been linked. After you’ve claimed a reward on Twitch, please make sure you’re logging into the region you’d like to receive the drop(s) on, as the first region you log into will be where we deliver your packs. It can take up to ~30 minutes to receive your reward(s) in game after claiming. You must link your Twitch and Battle.net accounts before you can receive a drop.
      Link Your Battle.net & Twitch Accounts
      You'll need to link your Twitch.tv and Battle.net accounts to receive Twitch Drops. Here's how:
      Log in or create an account on Twitch.tv. Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen. Navigate to the Connections tab of the Settings menu. Find the Battle.net section, then follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect. When connecting accounts, be sure that you're currently logged into the Battle.net account on which you'd like to receive your rewards. More Just Around the Corner
