One Night in Karazhan has dropped and the Prologue mission (free) and the The Parlor (first wing) is now open. Two of the boss battles on these use pre-constructed decks and I provided some videos below of the heroic versions. The other two heroic bosses require you to develop your own decks, and in this instance I found I could use the same deck list with ease for both encounters. If you’d like to see what cards you get for completing the wings this week make sure to check our spoiler list. Prologue – Prince Malchezaar This fight is all about recycling your spells and trying to get really big turns where you can pop off spells, get a ton of spell damage and just destroy your opponent. You can be more selective of getting certain spells back than I was, but it still seemed to work. Silverware Golem He

The final wing of League of Explorers is here and we have 4 bosses to deal with. This week I build a couple decks to take advantage of some dumb AI in the game, a control priest style deck, and then just a plain old weenie deck. Once again, the first boss in this wing was by far the hardest. As always check out our spoiler list to see what cards you get to unlock this week. Heroic Skelesaurus Hex This guy took me the longest to figure out and you have to have some decent RNG to pull it off. I’ve had him drop turn 1 Grommash Hellscream and turn 1 Variann Wrynn before. If he does that, just concede and try again. The trick of this deck is to get out Animated Armor. He won’t attack it with his minions. So you’ll only take 1 damage and you

Got home this evening and opened up Blackrock Mountain. Luckily, I already had some practice last month against Grim Guzzler in both normal and heroic so I knew what I was getting into. The following are the deck lists and strategy I used along with the video of the match. Grim Guzzler His heroic ability drops in 2 creatures for himself and 1 for you. So you want to mulligan all your creatures since you’ll be getting them in play for free. The way you win this match is fairly easy, make sure you get board control and keep your creatures on the board while killing his with bigger creatures and cheap removal. Eventually he’ll run out of cards and you can just win. In the video I used Deathwing instead of Malygos. But if you watch the video you’ll see why I added Malygos to the deck afterwords. Malorne

The hosts of Hearthstone Powerhour have put together a fun little video showing how you can survive with the Auchenai Soulprist and Tree of Life Combo. Of course, it takes a little magic with a druid to make it happen… along with a couple armor points for good measure. You can watch the video below – and don’t forget, you can catch the Hearthstone Powerhour every Monday night at 9 PM CST on http://twitch.tv/twizzcast

We had the opportunity to visit Blizzard Campus this past week while we were in town for the Warlords of Draenor cinematic premiere. While there, Zeriyah and Lyndsi Achucarro set us up with an opportunity to sit down for an hour with some members of Team 5 and talk about the past, present, and future of Hearthstone. We were able to talk to Game Director Eric Dodds, Lead Artist Ben Thompson, Senior Game Designer Mike Donais (responsible for game balance), and Community Manager Christina Sims joined us as well. Some topics discussed were the development of Hearthstone, why Curse of Naxxramas and the challenges facing development of it, what Blizzard has in store for the future of Fireside Gatherings, how Android development is shaping up, and will we see new classes added to the game anytime soon? A summary of some of the bigger pieces for those who may not want to watch

Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Don’t Kick My Robot’s very own Poach, leader and founder of the professional Hearthstone team. As some of you are probably aware, BlizzPro and DKMR have a very tight-knit partnership and I thought our meeting up would be an excellent opportunity to dig deeper into that relationship while discussing his team, the tournament scene, and everything in between! (We apologize in advance for the street and store noise. We decided to film this interview at this particular location for a reason , but had to also compete with the happenings of daily business as well. Sorry for any inconvenience.) As for that special announcement? Due to increased activity in the store at the end of the video, we were forced to edit out a bit of the ending, but BlizzPro & DKMR are proud to announce that the site

 

It’s been a while since I complied a list of the best non-game play Hearthstone Videos and boy did I pick the right time to scour the interwebs! There are so many great videos that I can’t wait to share with all of you. Let’s jump right in! Fireside Gathering Movie Up first, this live action movie was inspired by the recent Fireside Gatherings. Tight editing and great lighting and sound quality combine to heighten the tension of playing across from your opponent in real life.  If I had to critique one thing, I would suggest using a tripod rather than a hand held camera for more steady wide angle shots, but overall this is a fun, high quality video that deserves a watch! NSFW Warning: Adult Language Trump: Going to the Zoo Up next, we have a fun little ditty from Trump’s stream. Upon reaching Legend Rank with his Free to Play

Seatstory Cup took place this past weekend and if you didn’t get a chance to check it out while it was going down, you missed out on a very chill casting atmosphere and a very intense tournament atmosphere. As per usual with Dennis and TakeTV’s tournaments, the participants themselves were casting the games. Gnimsh and EKOP were by far my favorite casting duo because they pretty much disagreed with each other on everything until Gnimsh eventually gave in to EKOP. You could tell they were having fun with it while still delivering high caliber analysis of the games. The overall winner was StrifeCro, netting $8,000 for himself after defeating Gnimsh in the finals; the latter would walk away with $4,000. Trump rounded out the top three, claiming $2,000 for his efforts. For a full recap of how the original eight players moved through their games, check out Liquipedia’s entry for

Yesterday, I took you, the faithful readers here at Blizzpro, through my thought processes while playing ShocLock Aggro. In the process of doing that, I also provided everyone with an list that had been updated since my last article talking about the deck; this included Sunfury Protector, a card that you don’t see in aggressive decks. In fact, I’ve never seen it in an aggressive deck until now. I think that it is an outstanding card in this deck and this video is a great demonstration of why.  Note that, in this game, I’m down to 18 before my opponent even reaches their third turn; with the help of a certain protector, I’m able to turn the momentum of the game and bounce back. Keep an eye on how having a two drop that gives two of my minions taunt completely changed the dynamic of the game in this clip.

A lot of crazy stuff happens in the Hearthstone arena. In our pursuit of 12 wins we often run across traditionally awful cards, three or more of the same card and all the terror RNG can provide somewhere in the middle. Arena Adventures highlights some of the more heart wrenching, comical and even horrifying moments in the Hearthstone arena. It’s difficult to know what to expect when hopping into an arena match. Ranked mode teaches us to expect one thing, and then we usually get something totally different. This time, however, that was not the case. This Hunter deck was exactly what I feared in ranked mode, right down to having, no joke, Leeroy Jenkins. I played far too aggressively and was ultimately punished for it.
