theres a minor issue with your mage guide to grobbulus, in the deck, it says to put mad scientist in, but you dont unlock mad scientist until you beat grobbulus, its good for second play-through and heroic, but as somebody doing the quarter for the first time i got confused, then annoyed

The druid deck also uses Stalagg and Feugen before they have been unlocked.

Patchwerk heroic is ridiculously easy with a mage if you get an early Snowchugger.

These are the F2P decks I beat the Heroic Construct Quarter with.

Patchwerk
https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/patchwerk-guide-for-the-curse-of-naxxramas

There are „only“ two problems in this fight: Patchwerk's weapon and his Hero Power. Simply playing taunts will not suffice, because Patchwerk's hero power can remove them easily. So you also have to freeze Patchwork, at best regularly.

F2P Mage (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration:



2x Goldshire Footman
2x Mirror Image
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Frostbolt
2x Frostwolf Grunt
2x Unstable Ghoul
2x Deathlord
2x Duplicate
2x Ironfur Grizzly
2x Silverback Patriarch
2x Fireball
2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta
2x Water Elemental
2x Booty Bay Bodyguard
2x Sludge Belcher

Mulligan for Goldshire Footman, Frostbolt and Acidic Swamp Ooze.
Coin out your Ooze on turn 1: Patchwerk can only reequip his weapon on turn 3.
Play a taunt each turn, especially on the turn before Patchwerk's weapon runs out or you destroy it with Acidic Swamp Ooze. This way he cannot use Hateful Strike (4 mana) and equip his new weapon (3 mana) on the same turn.
Note: Acidic Swamp Ooze will be useless on turn 2 and from turn 7 on, as Patchwerk then will always have enough mana for his weapon (3) and his Hero Power (4).
You have to play Water Elemental and 1-2 taunts on turn 5 to win this game.
Your ideal turns will look somewhat like this:
Turn 1: Coin and Acidic Swamp Ooze or Frostbolt.
Turn 2: Taunts or Frostbolt.
Turn 3: Single taunts will not change a thing because of Hateful Strike. Instead: Frostbolt or Duplicate. If you have no taunts on your board, it will copy Acidic Swamp Ooze!
Turn 4: 1-2 taunts or Frostbolt.
Turn 5: Water Elemental and Mirror Image or Goldshire Footman.
Turn 6+: Any taunt.

Grobbulus
https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/grobbulus-guide-for-the-curse-of-naxxramas

Grobbulus' Hero Power deals 2 damage to all of your characters and summons 2/2 Slimes for each of your minions that dies to his Hero Power.
Plan your turns with Grobbulus' Hero Power in mind: Losing your minions to trading is better than leaving a minion with less than 3 HP on the board, thus spawning a Slime for Grobbulus.
This fight can be quite annoying depending on the number of Mutating Injections, Spectral Knights and Heroic Strikes Grobbulus draws.

F2P Priest (0 Dust)
Difficulty: hard (may take more than 10 tries)
Inspiration: http://www.hearthhead.com/deck=67636/0-dust-heroic-grobbulus-killer

2x Holy Smite
2x Mind Vision
2x Northshire Cleric
2x Power Word: Shield
2x Bluegill Warrior
2x Divine Spirit
2x Shadow Word: Pain
2x Deathlord
2x Shadow Word: Death
2x Nerubian Egg
2x Sen'jin Shieldmasta
2x Darkscale Healer
2x Gurubashi Berserker
2x Holy Nova
2x Sludge Belcher

Mulligan for Northshire Cleric, Holy Smite and Nerubian Egg.
Having a Nerubian on turn 3 will allow you to kill Dancing Swords easily. The 2/2 Slime+card draw is better than the 4/4 Sword.
Buff Deathlord's HP, put a Gurubashi Berserker next to it and keep both alive using Holy Novas and Darkscale Healers.
Try to copy a Mutating Injection using Mind Vision and buff Deathlord.


---

Gluth
https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/gluth-guide-for-the-curse-of-naxxramas

Gluth's Hero Power will reduce the HP of all your minions to 1, so it will be best to use minions with low health.
Kill Zombie Chows specifically to replenish your health. Rule of thumb: If they are alive for 3 turns, their deathrattle will no longer be an advantage. Try to use the deathrattles of Unstable Ghoul, Abomination and Necroknight to kill them.
You absolutely need to destroy Gluth's weapons. Hope that 2 of the 4 are at the bottom of Gluth's deck, otherwise it will be hard to sustain the damage.
Do not play to many minions at once, because of Abomination and Unstable Ghoul. Your minions should be able to deal 4 damage to kill Abominations.
Both your hands will be empty pretty soon, once you survived the first 5-6 six rounds. It then will be pure topdeck luck to beat Gluth.

F2P Paladin (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries, but the fights will last quite long)
Source: http://www.hearthhead.com/deck=67761/0-dust-heroic-gluth-killer

2x Blessing of Might
2x Goldshire Footman
2x Hand of Protection
2x Humility
2x Voodoo Doctor
2x Acidic Swamp Ooze
2x Holy Light
2x Ironfur Grizzly
2x Magma Rager
2x Wolfrider
2x Blessing of Kings
2x Consecration
2x Hammer or Wrath
2x Truesilver Champion
2x Guardian of Kings

Mulligan for both Acidic Swamp Oozes.
Use Humility on Necroknight to disable the biggest threat. Then kill it as soon as its deathrattle will destroy Spectral Knight and Spiteful Smith.
Always protect Magma Rager with a taunt.


---

Thaddius

Thaddius' Hero Power will always switch health and attack values of all minions on the start of his turn. You can use damage against Thaddius' minions to weaken their attack next turn.
You need a perfect starting hand to kill Feugen & Stalagg as soon as possible and then the right means to clear the board. It could take some tries.
Thaddius has a lot of 2-/3-damage spells which will make it hard to establish board control. But Thaddius will also deliberately waste Lightning Storm on single minions, if he otherwise would lose minions.

F2P Priest (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration: https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/thaddius-guide-for-the-curse-of-naxxramas

2x Goldshire Footman
2x Holy Smite
2x Power Word: Shield
2x Zombie Chow
2x Nerubian Egg
2x Shadow Word: Pain
2x Dark Cultist
1x Deathlord
2x Ironfur Grizzly
2x Shadow Word: Death
1x Raid Leader
2x Chillwind Yeti
Feugen&Stalagg
2x Holy Nova
2x Sludge Belcher
1x Stormwind Champion
1x Kel'Thuzad

Mulligan for Goldshire Footman, Holy Smite, Zombie Chow, Nerubian Egg and Shadow Word: Death.
After killing Feugen and Stalagg asap you have to keep minions on the board. Board control is the only way to win this fight.
In this fight heals and health buffs actually are attack buffs. If you do not heal a damaged minion, because of the swapping its stats will be reduced forever.
Buffing your minions with Raid Leader or Stormwind Champion will result in a bug: Each time stats are switched your minions will gain additional +1 stats. Reaching turn 8 with Stormwind Champion on your board means, you are winning.
Because Feugen and Stalagg already are on the board, playing your own versions will give you the chance on your own 1 or 2 versions of Thaddius.
Having Kel'Thuzad next to a taunt will seal the game as well.


F2P Warlock (0 Dust)
Difficulty: medium (may take up to 10 tries)
Inspiration: http://www.hearthhead.com/deck=67929/0-dust-heroic-thaddius-killer

2x Corruption
2x Mortal Coil
2x Soulfire
2x Voidwalker
2x Zombie Chow
2x Nerubian Egg
2x River Crocolisk
2x Unstable Ghoul
2x Drain Life
2x Shadow Bolt
2x Chillwind Yeti
1x Deathlord
Feugen&Stalagg
2x Sludge Belcher
2x Stormwind Champion
1x Kel'Thuzad

Mulligan for Corruption, Mortal Coil, Soulfire, Voidwalker, Zombie Chow and Nerubian Egg to kill Feugen and Stalagg asap.
After killing Feugen and Stalagg asap you have to keep minions on the board. Board control is the only way to win this fight.
Buffing your minions with Stormwind Champion will result in a bug: Each time stats are switched your minions will gain additional +1/+1. Reaching turn 8 with Stormwind Champion on your board means, you are winning.
Because Feugen and Stalagg already are on the board, playing your own versions will give you the chance on your own 1 or 2 versions of Thaddius.
Having Kel'Thuzad next to a taunt will seal the game as well.
 

Cheerio,

Bob

These are the F2P decks I beat the Heroic Construct Quarter with.

 

 

 

Neither your Priest nor Warlock decks will work vs Thaddius.  You don't even get Stalagg or Feugen until you beat him. You also don't get Dark Cultist until you complete the priest challenge, which I'm assuming also unlocks once you beat him.

 

Any other tips, please??

My guide is intended to work in Heroic mode. I assume, everyone, who wants to beat Heroic mode, already has beaten all bosses in Normal.

For Thaddius in Normal I suggest you just leave the missing cards out and fill the gaps with Raid Leader, Stormwind Champion and Deathlord respectively. If you stick to the advice in my guide, you will certainly beat Thaddius in Normal mode in just a few tries.

 

Cheerio,

Bob

Ummm.... quick question.  Isn't Jeeves an auto-win against this?  His ability forces each player to draw to 3 cards... Patchwerk has no deck... he'd draw himself to fatigue death the turn Jeeves drops!

OK, so I tried this and it's not QUITE that awesome.  Since he has zero cards in hand, it auto triggers three draws.  As I had already hit him with a Coldlight Oracle, it was 3, 4, and 5 damage... and it seriously finished him!

Having such a ridiculously hard time with Grobbulus. I'm getting closest with mage, but it's so reliant on top-decking exactly what I need.

Do you play heroic or normal? I had some success with Patron warrior (pre-nerf though). Also, you can try ramp druid.

I think I discovered a bug with the AI of Heroic Patchwerk. He refuses to kill Mistress of Mixtures, so if you give one taunt with Sunfury Protector or Defender of Argus he just passes the turn for the rest of the game.

 

It's super cheesy, but an easy way to beat him if anyone has trouble.

      Doom in the Tomb is now live and the update comes with all-new 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards and 23 cards that are temporarily stepping out of Wild back into Standard. Note that the cards will remain in Standard until the next major update and exact end dates and times will be announced in the weeks ahead.
      Blizzard (Source)
      A new Hearthstone update has just arrived, featuring the “Doom in the Tomb” Hallow’s End event, Wild cards temporarily returning to Standard, portrait rewards for dedicated Hearthstone players, and much more!
      New Event - Doom in the Tomb!

      Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum’s deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues! The new Doom in the Tomb event starts today, October 8, and will last until October 30. Here’s what’s in store:

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1
      Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum! The clock is running, too – race to set the record for the fastest Temple run! Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and earn a Rastakhan’s Rumble Card Pack. Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Common Ancient Mysteries!
      Week 2: Doom in the Tomb, Part 2
      E.V.I.L has their turn, and now it’s up to Reno and the League of Explorers to join the run and flex their Temple diving speed. New enemies and challenges await!

      Rewards Complete a run in under 1 hour and receive a Golden Common Temple Berserker Complete a run in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Rare Generous Mummy
      Week 3: The Haunted Carousel
      Get ready for the big mix-up! In this Tavern Brawl, you’ll need to strategize around minions constantly rotating board positions – all while controlling the Horseman’s time-shifted Dreadsteeds!

      Rewards Summon 100 Dreadsteeds to earn a Rise of Shadows Card Pack Dual-Class Heroes

      The Dual-Class Arena Hallow’s Eve dress-up party is back! When you start an Arena run during the Doom in the Tomb event, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and card offerings will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards.
      Players who have an active Arena run when this begins will have their current run ended and will receive an Arena Ticket as compensation. To ensure that players have a chance to try out this devilish dual-class deck-building dress-up party, anyone who logs in during each of the first two weeks will receive one Arena Ticket per week! This event coincides with our normal Arena rotation. The new Arena sets in rotation are as follows: Curse of Naxxramas Goblins vs. Gnomes Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament League of Explorers Whispers of the Old Gods One Night in Karazhan Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Journey to Un'Goro Knights of the Frozen Throne Kobolds & Catacombs Hex & Flex Bundles

      Hex Bundle
      If you thought the League of E.V.I.L. was securely under wraps, think again! Arch-Villain Rafaam has leveraged his lackeys and put together the Hex Bundle, 20 Rise of Shadows card packs and a random Rise of Shadows Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Flex Bundle
      Reno’s vest just doesn’t have room for bulging biceps AND stacks of card packs. That’s why he’s whipped together the Flex Bundle! Get 20 Saviors of Uldum packs and a random Saviors of Uldum Legendary card at the discounted price of $19.99 USD. Standard Shake-Up

      Starting with today’s patch and lasting until our next major update, 23 cards from across Hearthstone history are temporarily stepping out of Wild and back into Standard. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection. Even if you already own the cards you'll still receive these event copies, and when the event ends they'll disappear.
      IMPORTANT NOTE: While these cards were re-introduced during the Doom in the Tomb event, they will remain in Standard past the event's conclusion, until the launch of our next major update. More details will be shared, including exact end dates and times, in the coming weeks.
      Card List: Druid: Astral Communion Kun the Forgotten King Mage: Babbling Book Flamewaker Paladin: Mysterious Challenger Avenge Hunter: Lock and Load Call of the Wild Shaman: Evolve Thing from Below Rogue: Shaku, the Collector Swashburglar Priest: Lightbomb Vol'jin Warlock: Imp Gang Boss Renounce Darkness Warrior: Varian Wrynn Bloodhoof Brave Neutral: N'Zoth, the Corruptor Sylvanas Windrunner Ragnaros the Firelord The Curator Emperor Thaurissan 1,000 Win Portrait Rewards

      The time has come for dedicated Hearthstone players to flex their Hero mastery! We’re introducing new portraits earned by achieving 1,000 Ranked or Arena wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals.

      Blizzard today announced a new event coming to the game on October 8. It's called Doom in the Tomb. Check out what's in store for Hearthstone this month!
      UPDATE
      Placeholder for tweet 1180177096972222464 Blizzard (Source)
      Legends have told of dangers lurking within the Haunted Temple of Uldum and the grand ancient treasures they conceal. Of course, “treasure” was all anyone had to mention to get Reno and Rafaam on board, and now their sights are set on acquiring the temple’s powerful artifacts for their own campaigns!
      It won’t be an easy task, though. While our Heroes and Villains battle to push deeper through the Haunted Temple, the Headless Horseman has resorted to a nefarious contingency and opened a sealed sarcophagus full of WILD terrors. Now it will be up to you to aid the conquests of good, or E.V.I.L, in a race to uncover the tomb’s precious secrets and escape the doom in the tomb!

      Step into the Haunted Tomb
      The spooky spelunking adventures begin at 10:00 AM PT on October 8 and end at 9:00 AM PT on October 30 – three weeks packed full of new activities to participate in:

      Unique Tavern Brawls

      Week 1: Doom in the Tomb, Part 1 Gear up with your favorite member from the League of E.V.I.L and delve into the Haunted Temple, full of the baddest bosses in Uldum!

      Treasures from the Tomb!

      23 cards from across Hearthstone history have been unsealed from Wild and unleashed by the Headless Horseman! Until our next major update, these cards are stepping out of Wild and will be playable in Standard matches. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action.

      Today we get a look at some of the smaller stuff coming up in Hearthstone's future, including new events like dual-class arenas, 23 old cards returning to standard (Ragnaros and N'zoth were mentioned), new class portraits for 1000 wins, and plenty of quality of life improvements!
      Behind the Doors (source)
      While we’re constantly recruiting lackeys, tinkering with experimental tech, and delving into dusty tombs to bring you new Hearthstone expansions and Adventures, we’re also hard at work on some awesome, albeit less flashy, new stuff. In this blog we’ll shine a light on some of the smaller, but still exciting new features, events, and changes coming to Hearthstone in the near future.

       
      Adding More Events

      After the overwhelmingly positive response to the recent Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. event, we’re looking for more opportunities to introduce even more large-scale in-game events with rewards, themed Tavern Brawls, and changes that could temporarily (or permanently!) create fun new Hearthstone experiences for players.
      We’re starting off with a new event in just a couple weeks featuring Dungeon Run-inspired Tavern Brawls, dual-class Arenas, Legendary quest rewards, and some meta-shifting changes outlined in the “Shaking up Standard Play” section below.
      We’ll have more to share on this sensationally spooky event on October 4, but in the meantime . . . try not to lose your head!
       

      Shaking up Standard Play

      Now that the Saviors of Uldum Standard ladder experience has solidified, we think it’s a great time to throw a wrench or two (or twenty-three) in the gears. We’re going to be pulling some of the most popular and game-changing cards from across Hearthstone history, including
      Ragnaros the Firelord and N'Zoth, the Corruptor, out of Wild and dropping them back into Standard for a limited time. To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get them into the action.
      We’ll be sharing more details (including the full list of 23 cards) in a blog update on October 4. Stay tuned!

      1,000 Win Class Portraits
      Looking ahead, we want to continue celebrating personal successes and milestones for all you dedicated Hearthstone players. Our next major update will introduce some really cool new portraits that you can earn by earning 1,000 wins with each class. Wins earned before this update goes live will retroactively count towards these totals. Take a look at a couple of examples below and start stacking up those wins!



      Quality of Life Improvements
       
      Alternate Search Terms
      We want it to be easier to quickly find the cards you’re looking for while deckbuilding, so we’re adding alternate search terms for some hard-to-type cards. We’ll be adding common misspellings and simplified versions of leetspeak card names (found on some Mech minions). For example, searching “snip” or “snap” will now show you SN1P-SN4P. While this feature will only be enabled for a few commonly misspelled cards at first, we’ll be able to add even more alternate search terms as needed.
      This feature will also support languages other than English. For example, SN1P-SN4P in Latin American Spanish is “CL1C-CL4C”, so searching “clic” would return the expected results. Quest Changes
      While not included in our next major update, here’s a preview of some of the changes we’re making to quests a little further down the line.
      We’re cutting some of the less popular daily quests and tuning down some of their requirements to make them quicker and easier to complete. We’ll also be adding some new quests to the pool to mix things up! We split most daily quests into two buckets: Easy (50g) and Slightly More Difficult (60g). Rerolling a Slightly More Difficult (60g) quest (like Play 10 Beasts) always gives you an Easy (50g) quest, so players can be guaranteed to get an Easy quest every day if they want. We love  Murlocs and Pirates as much as anyone, but it should be your choice if you decide to complete their quests.
      We’re excited to be bringing these new features, events, and other changes to Hearthstone soon. Please let us know what you think on social media or the official Hearthstone forums. Until then, we’ll see you in the Tavern!
