Patchwerk is the first boss of the Construct Quarter, the fourth wing of the Curse of Naxxramas. Most of the information in this guide is aimed at Heroic mode, but everything presented here can also be helpful to defeat the Normal mode of the boss.

Normal Heroic
Health 30 45
Hero Power Hateful Strike costs 4 mana and destroys 1 minion.
Deck Patchwerk has no card in his hand, no deck, and does not draw a card when his turn comes.
Extra Patchwerk has a Hook equipped. When this 5/8 weapon is destroyed (by one of your cards or from reaching 0 durability), it gives Patchwerk a Hook card, which he immediately plays to give himself a new weapon. Hook works in the same way, just that it is a 4/8 weapon with Windfury.


We put up a video on Youtube to show you how to defeat Patchwerk.


Strategy and Deck Building

When building a deck to beat Patchwerk, your main focus will be surviving his immediate pressure from Hook and ensuring you have enough defensive board presence after each Hateful Strike.

Since Patchwerk has no cards in his deck, the encounter is extremely predictable. Hook can easily be controled with Taunters, while an early Acidic Swamp Ooze can relieve you from a lot of pressure. Hateful Strike will always target the minion with highest defensive valueo which means that Patchwerk will prioritize Taunters so he can swing at your Hero.

Defender of Argus and Sunfury Protector are an amazing choice for your deck as they can give your other minions Taunt, especially when synergy is made with Faerie Dragon or Spectral Knight (which cannot be targeted by Hateful Strike).

An easy way to defeat Patchwerk is to use a Mage deck and keep him frozen with Freeze effects provided by Ice Lance, Frostbolt and Water Elemental.

Also, any card drawing from minions such as Dancing Swords or Coldlight Oracle will cause Patchwerk to take increasing damage from Fatigue.

To help you beat Patchwerk, we created the three decks presented below. You can also get some inspiration from them to create decks for other classes.
