Patchwerk Battlegrounds Guide
This guide provides in-depth information to help you play the undead construct Patchwerk better: your general gameplan, tribe and composition synergy, and additional tips to win with the hero.
Patchwerk is a hero that breaks the game right from the start: a beginning Health pool of 60 rather than 40! The large health pool allows you to tier early at the loss of health. Although you may lose some early to mid-range rounds, being at a higher Tier earlier allows you to find minions that no other player has access to!
Patchwerk lends itself to builds that utilize high-tier minions to succeed. Mechs, Beasts, and Demons are statistically the strongest tribes available, with Menagerie equally as viable due to strong 5- and 6-drop offerings.
Mechs to look out for include, , and .
Beasts to have on your radar as Patchwerk include, , and .
Demons to consider include, , and . Another helpful minion for the build includes an early from Tier 1.
Menagerie pieces to find throughout the game include, , , and .
Important Tips & Interactions
Leveraging your Health throughout the game is a key tool to playing Patchwerk. This is often done with early leveling to Tiers 3 and 5 as well as taking Demon options likeearly to go hard into Demons.
Taking an early level to 3 is an intuitive way to trade Health for tempo in the early turns before you lose too much Health. Your curve from Turn 1 may look two different ways, depending on if you get a token on board or not. To illustrate:
No Token on Turn 1
- Turn 1: Buy 1 minion;
- Turn 2: Level to Tier 2;
- Turn 3: Buy 1 or 2 minions (depending on Token in T3 shop);
- Turn 4: Level to Tier 3.
Token on Turn 1
- Turn 1: Buy 1 token minion;
- Turn 2: Level to Tier 2;
- Turn 3: Sell token minion, Level to Tier 3.
Either option for leveling before Turn 5, your standard curve turn, is acceptable as it will produce similar results. I would advise from here that you do not power level to 4 the very next turn as it may be impossible to come back from the deficit in power. Instead, take your next turn after going to Tier 3 by buying strong minions, and continue your leveling the turn after.
