The new PvE mode has been live for a few hours and our guide offers a first look into it!

The Monster Hunt went live earlier today as expected. You will immediately get a limited time quest to beat 10 bosses as the Tracker, followed by the same quest for the other three Monster Hunt heroes (Cannoneer, Houndmaster and Time-Tinker). In total, for these four quests you will receive four The Witchwood packs.

Pesty has been hard at work and has quickly written up a neat Monster Hunt guide. In it, you can find all kinds of Treasures you can get, as well as what you will be offered after each Boss. Each hero also has its own kinds of card buckets. Lastly, there is an order of Bosses: specifically which one(s) you can find at each step of your Monster Hunt! Soon, we should have separate pages with details for every Boss!

Feel free to share screenshots from your Monster Hunt adventure! Which boss did you find difficult? Which hero is broken? Any other useful tips?

Made it with Tess on my first attempt, go for jades and all is easy with her insane hero power.

The others feel much harder and I guess I am done, as with all the time consuming solo content :D

But for all who enjoy it, have fun and good luck :)

Darius is easy if you get the cannon damage buff and pick mukla and a maiden, and some squires

I won first try with Houndmaster Shaw. almost lost on the Bogwarden, but then did this insane thing with Baron Rivendare and we both died (which lets you move on, but you don't get any treasures btw). I can't seem to get past Captain Shivers as Tess Greymane though, I got to him easily with a jade deck, then we both got fatigued and I died first :(

Got Hagatha. 

Treassures: Crystal gem. Double time. Entrenchment and Cult of the wolf.

When you lay out double call of the wilds and get them back for 1 mana it kind of turns your way. The four different  monsterhunters are quite fun to play. I especially remember using beastiary against Captain Shivers.

Got 7 minions where 5 of them had 8 attack. Unfortunately 3 of them was Fel Reavers. Which drains me 9 cards per card played by the monster ARGGG.

Had double health because there was nothing better. Won by an inch

 

This is really for patient people that find enjoyment in RNG. (Problably why i did not meet Caldyrvan :-) )

I only finished it with Tess and I found it very easy, maybe I got lucky because after a few attempts with the other classes I got bored fast, same as Dungeon Runs. :D

But from what I was reading and what I heard from friends this seems to be much easier than the K&C content, not only because you have to do it with only 4 classes but it seems to be less frustrating as well.

Houndmaster is my last one and I just can't crack it so far. Cannonneer and Time were both done on the first try, Tracker took a bit longer, but Houndmaster just won't work for me.

I seem to have more luck when buffing the hounds, had them as 3/3s at one point, but then lost to crappy RNG.

I finished all this adventure in a few really realxing days. I didn't play too much, sometimes was unlucky or even totaly unlucky, but i would say in general i got fun. My favorite moment was with last boss with Cannoner, i had three cannos on turn 5 (Grizzled Reinforcement helped, a bit not sure about turn, but was really early game). Cannos also had +1 extradamage, so I simply cleared board all the time, poor boss, no chances. :D

Houndmaster was first hero with whom i finished. My hounds was 3/1. One of my favorite treasures in games with him is First Aid Kit . Yea, i know in article Monster Hunt Houndmaster Shaw Guide  it has rate "bad" , but from my personal expirience this treasure very good, it helped me to save my minions for long time and was really useful with last boss Glinda. :)

Also in general my personal sympathy to Enchanting Tune , i like to steal minions with evil laugh "Muahahahaha!!!" :D

Yeah usually get to Glinda fairly easy but she always gets to me...
1 time with a companion beast deck she did me in by just milling me and finishing me off with those darn 6/3 minons that return to her deck.
The other times I went full deathrattle with the lunar signet buff and she just  rushed me down agro style.

Let me know if you figure something out! Im giving up for now lol

I cleared Glinda in my first try on day two. I did not expect to do it. I had not checked any guides. I was just making monster kills to compleate the shaw quest. I tried for some beast synergy and some charge/rush but I did not have any special plan.

I just tried again. No luck :-)

 

In my first try I had +2 to all health and later got + 2 attack for the hounds. Having a 3/3 rush beast for 2 mana every turn helps a lot.

 But i did not really get anywhere because Glinda always where able to put down new minions in the same speed I removed them

That all my minions also had the +2 health allowed me get a bit ahead but then she would drop an abysmal enforcer or a crowskin pack. When I noticed I was just returning the 6/3  crowskin faithfull so I couldn't even mill her I flooded the bord in fustration. 

For some AI reason she then put down a DOOM with only a single crowskin faithfull in her deck and raise her fatigue damages to 7 or 8.

I got a couple high attack minions out and for some reason She waited two turns to drop the faithful so I was able to get help from the fatigue.

 

On my second run I got +2 attack for the dogs and 1 extra mana crystal. I ended up with a strange mix of a rush, combo and control deck. 3 leroys, 3 hyennas and 2 call of the wild. Actually very fun to play

This time she dropped a Cult master with 9 cards in hand. I had a lot of rush cards and where able to mill her for a while. That removed one of the faith full and one of the crowskin pack. But unfortunately also the DOOM. She got me on fatigue in the end.

 

So I agree with the monster hunt guide by pesty. Try to build a control deck an pray to the god of RNG. Because I think Glinda has a direct line to Him and he just was busy when I get the first win

Just had an exciting fight with boss Cragtor, the guy with the power to reduce his card's cost. Thought I would lost after he finished his quest but then I managed to enchant his minions and turned the tide :)

Sazzmi Gentlehorn is annoying with her power and esp her enchanment tune, but after defeating her we got the nice treasure card.

Cragtorr is hard, just won over him the first time.

The more I try, the more I feel that the +2 attack on dogs is important against her, otherwise you just get destroyed early game if you get bad RNG, bad early game, whatever.

Somehow I managed to beat her lol. Had +2 health and +2 attack for dogs. Then ricochet shot (didnt have to use ir though) and mostly divide and qoncuer, companionship and pack mentality buckets. 

Also the lunar vigney thingy (deathrattle triggers on play) which really helped a lot with highmane and deathrattle buffs

Though she couldve finished me 1 tie she didnt do it for some reason lol. 

Hagatha was easy af though,  finished her on second try

The AI really isn't the best at times. It does some seriously dumb stuff.

Just won over him as the final boss with Tess. A tip is that when his Fel Reaver is out, try to burn as much of his cards as possible using your cheap cards. I burned 9 of his cards in 1 turn, including the key card Leeching Poison so he cannot heal. If you have Enchantment Tune, you can also use it to take control of his strong minions.

For some bosses, we can even exploit their powers to win against them. For example, for the Ratcatcher boss, I exploit his passive power which buff attack of adjacent minions of a minion when it dies. Using echo card Hunting Mastiff, I put my dog in between 2 minions, crashed the dog into his minions, kill them and buff my 2 other minions. I buff them 3 times in a row, which result a total of +6 atk and succeed to kill the boss at just turn 4 :), as I have Crystal Gem btw.

Nice idea. I'll have to try that next time I give it a go.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.
      Daxxarri
      It’s the Headless Horseman’s favorite time of year, and he’s returning to the Hearthstone tavern from October 17 through October 31 to host another a blowout Hallow’s End celebration for everyone! If you dare to brave a tavern decked in delightfully dreary decorations, you’ll find that your horrific host has also planned some spine-tingling treats and chilling challenges!
       
      Tempting Treats
      The Headless Horseman is handing out ghoulish goodies just for logging in! Log in between October 17 and 10 p.m. PDT on October 31 to receive a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card and an Arena ticket.

       
      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party
      During Hallow’s End you can experience dual class Arena* with an added twist: Each of the nine classic Hearthstone Heroes will be attending in costume!

       
      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.
       
      Wise monster hunters avoid the haunted wood during Hallow’s End, so the creepy creatures of the Witchwood are taking the opportunity to find out which among them is the strongest! Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.
       


       
      There’s a feast of fearsome fun to be had at the Headless Horseman’s Hallow’s End hootenanny. Don’t forget to check out a Hallow’s End Fireside Gatherings Tavern near you and get Nemsy Necrofizzle as the celebration continues!
       
      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.
