Facing the Whisperer as Tess. If you use your discover hero power on turn 2 before any spells have been cast, you get a "Small Rock" spell, 1 damage for 0 mana. Whisperer gives all spells echo. Forty small rocks later....

BTW, Whisperer can be the level 7 boss.

In the beginning of the guide, it says "There are no second chances, and if you die against a boss, you will have to start all over again." This is false because if you get the treasure card "Rewind" then you in-fact get a second chance.

I'd like to note that the Gilnean Tracker doesn't just turn into any old 5/5 at the start of your turn, he turns into a 5/5 with "at the start of your turn, transform into an 8/8 windfury"

I don't have screenshots though

I just encountered Gobbles as my final boss. Same Hero Power, defeating him was a piece of cake, but I was so surprised to see him there that I had to restart my game to see if it's not broken.

Found Raeth Ghostsong as 8/8 boss. Hero power (1): deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, refresh this.

Tactics: similar to defense against Defile: flood your board but you should't allow 1-2-3etc HP minions at the same time.

Yeah, me too.  While I didn't always agree with every opinion expressed there, I did rather often look at the icy veins Dungeon Run guide.  That was a guide.  This is, like a cheap roadmap in comparison.

I'm not really sure what information should be in there that already isn't present or is not (going to be) inside the "sub-guides". Could you please give us some examples of what you expected?

Nobody can help you win this mode. The choices are random, so you're not going to know what you're going to get in order to change your tactics.

This “guide” is as much use as a chocolate fire guard. Why. Because this mission is impossible to beat. It doesn’t matter what you do the computer at some stage will defeat you. The computer cheats like you wouldn’t believe. Oh you have a board, that’s nice here is my 0 kill all and neggate all death rattle cards followed by my 1 mana 10/10 with charge and do 10 damage to your hero card to fill the board with. 

 

Anyone who who claims they have beaten any computer controlled level in hearthstone is lying to you. IT CANNOT HAPPEN. THE COMPUTER IS CODED TO STOP YOU FROM WINNING

It is possible to win, but it is both difficult and dependent on RNG. It may take some attempts, but you should be able to beat it. If that still doesn't work, come back to the game mode later when you have more experience with the game.

Your Almost right, it is very RNG dependant on your side of the board and decisions. But on the computer side, not so much. Only the computer can decide who wins and who loses, the human can only make bad plays. This is because your good plays are negated by the computer at every stage and every turn so the only influence you have is loosing quicker than expected. But the computer 100% decides if your going to win or lose, and their is nothing you can do about it

Sorry, you have no idea about how a computer works.

A computer deciding about winning / loosing is ridicilous. That kind of thinking requieres intelligence. Just the concept of winning / loosing is completly beyond a computer. 

A computer does, what the programming tells him. Yeah, there are AIs that learn up to a specific point, e.g. by playing against themselves. This way they can become better. But not because they think, but because after 100 000 games they "learn" what building / setup results in more wins. (There is a Starcraft 2 AI, which is able to beat even the best Starcraft 2 pro-gamers (partly because of inhuman micromanagement. But the strategy itself is good too and can't be compared to anyhting Blizzard has ever created. There was a link on Battlenet Starcraft 2 about those matches not long ago.)

However, the idea that the computer "decides" who wins is a joke.

Yeah, the AI has some advanteges. It has some incredible cards, insane hero-powers, more HP. Generally spoken, it has a better deck. Because the AI itself is horrible. If it wouldn't have an advantage in very strong decks / hero powers, the AI would never win. 

It's like in every other game. Civilization, Stellaris, whatever. If the AI doesn't get more ressources, faster technology, whatever, it has 0 chance against the player. (If the player know what he is doing.) That's why there are higher difficulties in which the AI gets more and more advanteges. The AI still sucks hard and is incredible bad. But if it techs twice as fast as you, it will become very difficult to beat it nevertheless.

 

Unlike the games mentioned above a card-game obviously is based on luck. You need some luck to win, sure. 

Even the best poker-player won't be able to beat you with 7-2 hands if you have repeatedly double Aces.

Even the best Hearthstone player will not always win the Witchwood. 

But decent players are able to beat it, because skill matters.

And good players won't need 100 tries or something like that. My guess is they will win maybe 1/3 of their tries.

So what your saying confirms what I’m saying.... I’m saying the computer decides who wins, your saying skill matters but even so skilled players can only win 1/3 of the time. You say the AI is poor but it still wins 2/3 of the times, this doesn’t make sence, the ai still decides who wins and loses as it has the dominant position.  Your statement clearly says that the user requires the ai to make mistakes to win rather than the user making good plays to win or the win ratio would be switched. I’d hate to think what the odds are for an average player if good players can only win 1/3 of the time.

and no, your confusing what a computer game ai with real autonomy. A game can decide who wins and who loses with coding. Take your gambling example, a slot machine is programmed to only allow so many wins per spin, maths and not random.

So I finally got the Whisperer and Tess Combo, but getting the Small Rock and Echo, it's actually been fixed it looks like to have the Echo of Small Rock cost 1 Crystal to cast, so you can't just get infinite Small Rocks to auto win against the Whisperer.  Pity.

      Today, we're recapping the four Shaman cards revealed by Gamespot. We also have some dev clarifications on how they work.
      If you missed our previous Warrior recap, you will find it here.

       
      What a way to kick things off; this card looks insane! The dream is that Drakuru takes out two of your opponent’s minions, resurrects them on your side, and survives combat somehow. You’re looking at a 5-for-1 exchange on board.
      In the more likely scenario that it doesn’t survive, that’s still a complete flip of the board state. Even if it’s trading into a single big minion on the opponent’s side, that’s still a 2-for-1, with that 1 on your side being a big tough-to-kill minion. The only worry is that there will sometimes be late-game scenarios where the 6/8 stat line won’t be enough to get you any resurrections, but I’m hopeful those are few and far between.
      Still, even if the Big Shaman archetype doesn’t catch on for Shaman, I expect this card, in particular, to find a home in Renathal Control Shaman lists. This card is doing much of the same work that Sylvanas and Insatiable Devourer are without having to run through the trouble of infusing first.

      Once again, another big expensive card and a solid showy effect to go along with it. Obvious deathrattle/reborn synergy, as well as good with big minions in general. At 10 cost, it will take up your entire mana pool for the turn, though there are things you can do to play around that as a shaman.
      We’ve gotten some clarification from the devs on the mechanics of this one:
      All the copies summoned die at the end of the effect trigger after having attacked. Unfortunately, it won’t be some corruption-style aura effect that a cheeky Showstopper effect can silence off. Your copies are made from your hand from left to right until no more board spaces are available. Beware that Colossals will summon their appendages and take up potential board space from your other copies. Windfury minions will only attack. Sorry Drakuru, no double freebies for you ? Minions that enter Dormant won’t attack, but they won’t die either! The interaction of getting free dormant minion copies on board is interesting, but is there enough to build a deck around? In standard, there is Gangplank, Slimescale, and Pelican Divers, but outside of From De Other Side “synergy,” they might not be worth it. In Wild, at the very least, there is meme potential with getting Magtheridion and The Darkness out with this and getting their battlecries to awaken both copies when you play them out the turn after.
      There’s obvious synergy with the other big cards revealed here, with Prescience loading up your hand with some beefy bois, getting get off reborn, lifesteal and deathrattle value, summon a minion from Overlord Drakuru.

      That’s a lot of keywords for a single card, but they work together to become the stuff of nightmares for any board-based aggro deck. Taunt and lifesteal make this a nightmare to trade into, and even with enough removal to clear the main body and the reborn one, the deathrattle effect still will hit for 3 twice and heal you for 6. So while the 3 attack won’t be anything to write home about, plopping this down will buy you a good deal of time. There’s also the possibility to make use of the leftover reborn 3/1 body to evolve into a 9 or 10 drop.

      This card will get you 2 Mana 2/3 Ghostly Apparitions with the Undead minion type, which can matter for cards like Unliving Champion, or Invincible, for instance. Suppose you trigger the secondary ability here both times. In that case, that’s a pretty sweet deal right there, advancing a Big Shaman win con in 2 ways: The taunt on the Ghostly Apparitions advances your gameplan of stalling the game out until you can stabilize on board enough to play the 5+ Mana minions you’ve tutored out of the deck.
      We’ve theory crafted 3 potential builds that can use this package of Shaman cards.
      First, consider diving head first into the Big Shaman theme, bringing in Vanndar Stormpike and forgoing all other sub-5 cost minions to get max value out of Prescience and From De Other Side. We’re also going to run with the evolve subtheme to take advantage of any leftover bodies that we might get from Stoneborn General, Overlord Drakuru, or Blighblood Berserkers. The departure of the Knights of the Frozen Throne set will make evolving 10 drops better again now that there are no more Snowfury Giants in the Evolve pool, and we get to re-roll for the generally better bodies from the 10 costs. We’re adding in some early-game removal to compensate for the lack of early drops so we can better survive the early game.

      AAECAaoICunQBMORBKeNBK/ZBNnsA/rsA4qSBfuRBYfUBKrZBArG+QOs7QS12QTgtQS22QTblATGzgTj9gOGoQX4oAUA
      Next, let’s try to use the standard Renathal Control Shaman archetype that’s doing rather well in the meta as a starting point. One safe idea is to look at slotting Overlord Drakuru and potentially Brightblood Berskerker and From De Other Side into this standard XL Renathal Control Shaman as ways of fighting back on board while getting your infuse cards stacked up.

      We could instead also try and drop all the duplicates from the list and convert it into a Reno deck, as the deck was already playing a lot of one-offs. That gives us just enough room for one of each of these bad boys, which together with Reno will up the turnaround potential of the deck at the cost of a little bit of consistency. Doing so we can end up with this list:
      Deck code / link: 
      AECAaoICunQBMORBKeNBK/ZBNnsA/rsA4qSBfuRBYfUBKrZBArG+QOs7QS12QTgtQS22QTblATGzgTj9gOGoQX4oAUA
      Why not use both and make it a Reno-thal deck? Prescience and Windchill will try to compensate for the loss of card draw from droping one copy of Gorloc Ravager and Famished fool. We are adding in Convincing Disguise to have still enough evolve effects around. The idea of including Bracing Cold and Far Sight is to hopefully discount From De Other Side or the evolve cards so we make use of any leftover bodies in the same turn. Ozumat’s in here not just to get us up to 40 cards, but because it’s a near guaranteed board clear combo with From De Other side, if you manage your hand and board space just right, that leaves you with all its appendages afterward.

      March of the Lich King, set to release on December 6th, is Hearthstone's third expansion in the Year of the Hydra. Blizzard gave us an early sneak peek at some of the Warrior cards revealed today that we discuss in our latest post.
      Today, we'd like to dive into the Warrior cards revealed by Inven Global.

      Pretty straightforward card. The effect gives us much more value the larger the minion is. It gets really scary with the potential follow-up with Bulk Up giving you this massively overstated minion in hand twice. Or If you can get this on Mor’shan Elite, that’s another nice double dip of value.

      Honestly, this feels like it was tailor-made to be the ideal target of Last Stand, as your opponent can’t easily get rid of it with cheap removal. It lets you use your stats immediately by letting you trade in and stabilize with a big taunt. It might not be too shabby on its own, as the 3 effects make it an annoying wall most opponents will be forced to trade into.

      Wow, they’re really not holding back with hand disruption this set. One (nearly) guaranteed discard is pretty impactful and becomes a must-remove card in any control matchup. This card will absolutely crush the hearts of some Big Spell Mages in the coming months, that’s for sure.
      It should be noted that this discard, the devs have confirmed to us that it will trigger your opponent’s “Whenever you discard a card” effects. So try and clear a Discard Warlock's Tiny Knight of Evil and perhaps try to play around having Suffocating Shadows or Soul Barrage trigger in that matchup. 

      To round off the control toolbox from this expansion, we’ve got a pretty unique effect here. Hopefully, this doesn’t end up being too easy to play around for savvy opponents. You could pre-empt this by running out a Blademaster Okani first and baiting out your opponent into playing a small spell first. But still, while the effect will only be as game-changing as your opponent’s last spell, getting any meaningful spell off seems pretty nice.
      Putting it all together, we have put together an interesting Taunt Control Warrior decklist to try out:  AAECAQcMmu0D784EvIoE2fkDqIoEiN8E784E0qwEmu0DlJUEzJIFiKAECcWSBZTtA47tA5+fBImgBIagBJDUBMSSBcuSBQA= . Slotting in Varian seems like a natural addition to any deck with Silverfury Stalwart and Tealan hops along to be the one divine shield minion you might want to have in your control deck. Rokara and Remornia are just good cards and they’ll go a long way to having your Mor’shan Elite’s active. The rest of the deck is the classic Control Warrior shell that will hopefully give you the armor and removal needed to live long enough to throw down your double-stated taunted win conditions.
      https://hearthstone.blizzard.com/deckbuilder?deckcode=AAECAQcMmu0D784EvIoE2fkDqIoEiN8E784E0qwEmu0DlJUEzJIFiKAECcWSBZTtA47tA5%2BfBImgBIagBJDUBMSSBcuSBQA%3D

      Murder at Castle Nathria is Hearthstone's latest expansion. It adds a new Infuse keyword that absorbs anima from your friendly minions, a new card type named Locations, and more.

      Murder at Castle Nathria
      Hearthstone’s Newest Expansion

      The Shadowlands is normally where souls go after they die, so when someone dies in the Shadowlands, that’s a special kind of mystery. Sire Denathrius invited 10 of his counterparts and enemies to Castle Nathria for a dinner party so that he could address the malicious rumors that he is hoarding anima, the life-energy that is drained from tortured souls and used to power the Shadowlands. But just after the festivities started, Sire Denathrius was found dead! It seems a gaggle of enemies does not a good dinner party make. Now the illustrious Murloc Holmes, and his trusty sidekick Watfin, have been called to solve the case. Scour new Location cards, follow the trail of Infused minions, question the 10 Legendary suspects, and help determine who committed Murder at Castle Nathria!   

      Murder at Castle Nathria will launch worldwide on August 2 with 135 new collectible cards! You can find the full Murder at Castle Nathria reveal schedule, and all cards that have already been revealed, by visiting the card library here. Check back frequently—the list will be updated with new cards as they’re revealed!
      Ten Suspicious Suspects
      Sire Denathrius had a lot of enemies. And it just so happens that 10 of them were under his roof at the time of his demise! Each class will have a Legendary minion that is a prime suspect in Sire Denathrius’s murder. They all have the means and the motive, but it is up to you and Murloc Holmes to determine who is guilty.



      New Keyword: Infuse
      Anima, drawn from wayward souls, powers all the Shadowlands—and those who consume it! Cards with the Infuse keyword sit in your hand and absorb anima from your friendly minions as they die. After the specified number of friendly minions die while the Infuse card is in your hand, the Infuse card transforms into a more powerful version. Infuse your cards to unlock their full power!

      New Card Type: Locations
      Castle Nathria is like no place Hearthstone has ever been before. Explore the castle grounds through the all-new Location card type! Locations are played onto the battlefield for an initial cost, and then have an ability that can be activated for free on your turns, each time for a powerful effect. Each activation costs 1 Durability and has a 1-turn Cooldown. Every class gets their own Location card in Castle Nathria which represents where they claim their suspect was at the time of the murder, and synergizes with the themes of the class.
