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.

Guide? This is an explanation of the mode, I was expecting some element of guidance....you know, like something a "guide" would do.

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.

      In the Year of the Pheonix post, we learned more about the Ranked mode overhaul in Hearthstone and Blizzard has now put together a general matchmaking FAQ which hopefully helps answer the most common questions.

      Rank Mode Changes
      The existing ladder in Ranked Mode has been replaced with a new league system. The system has five leagues each made up of 10 ranks. You will start each season at Bronze 10 and slowly make your way to Bronze 1 before graduating to the Silver League and above. Each league also has rank floors at rank 10 and rank 5 where you won't go down in ranks when losing matches. New players will have their own league that runs from ranks 40-1. 
      Stars & Bonuses
      You need to gain 3 starts to be promoted from Gold 10 to Gold 9 for example. You will gain one star for each match you win and lose one for a loss.  Based on your performance in the previous season, you will be rewarded with a star bonus which acts as a multiplier on the starts you get from each win.
      Ranked Rewards
      They've also reworked rewards that you earn at the end of each season or Ranked Play. Reward chest can now contain card packs from the latest expansions, Rare, and even Epic cards based on the rank you achieve. There are also brand new first-time rewards to help new players.

      You can find more details here and check out the FAQ below for more information.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey everyone! We put together a general matchmaking FAQ here for our new ranked system to help answer questions you may have.
      For general description of this new system, please refer to our Year of the Phoenix blog.
      If you want to learn some basic concepts of matchmaking, here is our previous blog about matchmaking in Battlegrounds.
      Q: How does matchmaking work for each season?
      A: There are two matchmaking pools: matchmaking by rating (aka. MMR) and by rank.
      When your star bonus multiplier is bigger than 1, or you are in Legend rank, you are (generally) in the first matchmaking pool; when your star bonus drops to 1, you are in the second pool.
      Q: Why are there two matchmaking pools?
      A: Since each player starts at the bottom of the ladder at start, we want fair matches for everyone (aka. win-rate close to 50%). At that time, your progression on ladder is protected by your star bonus, thus your net expected gain will be positive through the ladder. Once other players run out of star bonuses, matching by rank will allow for good players, or players who want to push themselves a bit, to be able to progress to a higher rank.
      In short, having two matchmaking pools helps players progress in the ladder without having to grind as much, while still making most matches fair.
      Q: If I “tank” my MMR at certain rank floor, will I be matched with easier opponents next season because you are matchmaking by MMR at the start?
      A: No, in general you won’t. At the start of the season we will recover your MMR to certain threshold if it is dropped below that value, which is based on what your rank is in the previous season. Therefore, there would be no benefits to intentionally tank your MMR.
      Q: How many stars bonuses do I get at the start of the season?
      A: It depends on your current MMR and the rank you reached from your previous season, whichever gives a higher value. Generally, the minimal initial star bonuses you get for each rank floor you reached are:
      Best Rank Minimal Initial Star Bonuses Bronze 10 2 Bronze 5 2 Silver 10 2 Silver 5 3 Gold 10 4 Gold 5 5 Platinum 10 6 Platinum 5 7 Diamond 10 8 Diamond 5 9 Legend 10 As you can see, every player starts with at least two stars bonuses.
      Q: Do you reset MMR each season?
      A: No, we do not.
      Q: Will the value of my previous season’s MMR be exactly same as the new season?
      A: Technically no, although the change will be very small and the “value order” will be kept (Player A whose MMR is larger than player B in the last season will still be ordered as such). Mathematically, a re-normalization process takes place at the start of each season to keep the distribution in a nice bell-shaped curve.
      Q: If I missed one season, will I lose my star bonuses when I return?
      A: No, you won’t.
      Q: If I missed multiple seasons, will I lose star bonuses when I return?
      A: Based on how long you are absent, there will be some small decay applied to your MMR. Therefore, you may (or may not) lose some star bonuses.
      Q: Where do the win steak bonuses end?
      A: Diamond 5.
