With Naxxramas finally being out we thought we would bring you one of DKMR’s first new variations of the old popular decks with the addition of the new cards you can receive by playing the new adventure mode. We will be looking at ...

It would be very easy to compare the anticipation and build up for the release of Curse of Naxxramas to that of a child waiting for Christmas Day. Class card teasers, Legendary card reveals, pricing information – they all may as well be the dribs and drabs of gifts showing up under the Christmas tree in the weeks leading up to the big day. With Christmas morning, it only took us mere moments to have the gifts unwrapped and the toys put together and played with, leaving only the smell of turkey wafting through the house  to give us something new to anticipate. In our case, the Arachnid Quarter has been opened, Maexxna has been defeated and Druids and Rogues have their new class cards, leaving us to now anticipate the opening of the Plague Quarter. Luckily for us, the Curse of Naxxramas is the gift that will keep on giving ...

Episode 19: Hearthstone Power Hour: Wing 1 of Naxx and Class Challenges Naxx has launched and we walk you through the first 3 bosses! We talk about the strengths and weaknesses of the new cards that are handed out and work our way through some incredibly awesome lag! Stay tuned for next week when we cover wing 2!...

Like in most games, Hearthstone, at its core, is a game of resource management. There are obvious resources, like your mana or amount of cards in hand, but there are also more subtle ones, like your life total and amount of cards remaining in your deck. All of these resources are finite, but in Hearthstone you also have Hero Powers, which in a sense could be considered as a sort of reusable resource. One of the important skills to getting better at this game is the management of these resources to gain as much advantage as possible. Mana is an obvious resource and I will talk about it briefly. Most of the difficulty in the usage of mana comes with timing spells and curving out. In most scenarios, trying to get full use of your mana is the best option. For example, if you are at seven mana and have a ...

Greetings, fellow players! Curse of Naxxramas has now been in our hands for a couple of days and I thought it might be nice to chronicle my experience with the adventure thus far. This series of articles will serve as more of a “Things I Observed” while walking through the halls of the necropolis rather than a “How To Destroy Everything ASAP” guide. We will definitely have that kind of coverage for you in the coming days though, so stay tuned! This first week brought us the Arachnid Quarter, full of spiders and interesting combat encounters. I made sure to avail myself of as few spoilers as I possibly could before I dived in to play, taking each screen slowly and letting the dialogue and music wash over me. The Atmosphere With that in mind, it makes sense to start with the atmosphere/flavor of the adventure. It was a nice mix of providing ...

 

Nerubian Egg Combo!

by Twizz on

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that Naxxramas is up and running!  The wings are being released week by week, slowly introducing new cards to the game.  Studder and I are working feverishly to expand combo possibilities for these new cards and we think we’ve found a winner! One of the cards that I found hard to work with was the Nerubian Egg.  Do I want that baby to hatch into a 4/4?  Heck yeah!  But how?  Do I have to wait until an AOE (area-of-effect) spell kills it?  How do I kill it myself?  It’s almost as bad as an Ancient Watcher because it’s just going to get ignored.  I mean, it can’t attack or do anything so why would my opponent even mess with it?  THIS WILL NEVER DIE!  I’M NEVER GOING TO GET MY 4/4!!!!!   ……wrong! Crazed Alchemist steps into play here and makes all ...

***THERE ARE POTENTIAL GAME PLAY SPOILERS BELOW! DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU ARE WAITING TO PLAY BEFORE READING ABOUT THE ARACHNID QUARTER*** By the time you read this post, the first wing of Curse of Naxxramas, the Arachnid Quarter, should have been available for play for at least 24 hours. If you’re like me, you were doing your best to avoid spoilers all day yesterday until you could get home from work and experience it all first-hand, nice and fresh! Well, you’ve had a day, so let me introduce you to this post from Community Manager Zeriyah which puts the Arachnid Quarter on beautiful display. Below, you will find details on which bosses you can expect to find, which cards you can expect to earn, and so much more. Venture forth, brave heroes, and steel yourselves for the challenges ahead! Gather your strongest spells, sharpen those armaments, and dust off your ...

Popular Priest purveyor Amaz, of Team Liquid, held a particularly novel competition in his Twitch channel yesterday morning during the Hearthstone maintenance – Hearthstone Jeoparino! He invited Kripparrian, Hafu, and Trump, all well-known personalities and players in the competitive scene, to let their hair down a little bit and sling some trivia rather than cards. All of the questions were related to Hearthstone and the players had to use their various home-made “buzzers” to ring in and answer. The entertainment value was high, despite the stream sporadically going down now and again. Questions ranged from fairly simple tests of speed and memory to actual difficult math and trickery. See how many you get right as you play along at home! The video is located below and I hope that we see more innovative ideas like this from our great community, with the competitive spirit extending itself outside of the “four walls” of ...

 

WHAT WOULD DKMR DO? #4

by Team [DKMR] on

Team DKMR: Twitter | Website | Forums Sponsored by: Hearthstats - Gunnar - 2P - Waypoint Written by Varranis Welcome to this week’s “What Would DKMR Do?” Each week we’ll present an in-game situation and discuss the possible lines of play. Here’s the scenario for this week: Sometimes in Hearthstone you don’t have all the answers. While we’d prefer to use an Earth Shock or Hex on this Edwin Van Cleef, we’re going to have to find an alternative means of dealing with the deadly rogue. How would you do it? Joseph Lee Wackowski said: I would personally play yeti. When my turn came back around, if he hit the yeti i would lightning bolt feral and if he didnt i would flametongue the yeti to kill the edwin then feral. Ronin agreed, stating: I’d just play Yeti. It’s too early in the game for the Rogue to burst us down, so the priority should be using your mana efficiently. If Yeti ...
