Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas
is about to receive its biggest update yet. Today Blizzard will add the Construct Quarter, a collection of four new A.I. bosses for players to challenge.
The release time will vary depending on your region. Here's the full schedule, courtesy of Blizzard
- Americas: Tuesday, August 12th at 11:59 PM PDT
- Europe: Tuesday, August 12th at 11:59 PM CEST
- Korea/Taiwan: Wednesday , August 13th at 12:59 AM KST / Tuesday, August 12th 11:59 PM CST
- China: Tuesday, August 12th at 11:59 PM CST
The Construct Quarter is named such because each of its bosses were actually created, rather than born. Kel'Thuzad and his scientists stitched them together using god-knows-how-many corpses. They're like Frankenstein's rejected designs.
You'll unlock at least one card for beating each boss on Normal mode. These cards should look familiar to you if you've played the other wings' bosses:
- Patchwerk - Undertaker (1/2, 1 mana): Whenever you summon a minion with Deathrattle, gain +1/+1.
- Grobbulus - Mad Scientist (2/2, 2 mana): Deathrattle: Put a secret from your deck onto the battlefield.
- Gluth - Zombie Chow (2/3, 1 mana): Deathrattle: Restore 5 health to the enemy Hero.
- Thaddius - Wailing Soul (3/5, 4 mana): Battlecry: Silence your other minions
Usually, beating the wing's boss in Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas
earns you a Legendary as well. However, in this case, you'll earn two Legendaries: Feugen (4/7, 5 mana) and Stalagg (7/4, 5 mana). When both are killed in battle, Thaddius (11/11) will be summoned to the battlefield.
The Construct Quarter's two new Class Challenges are for the Warrior and Priest. Here's what you'll earn for each class by completing these trials:
- Priest - Dark Cultist (3/4, 3 mana): Deathrattle: Give a random friendly minion +3 Health.
- Warrior - Death's Bite (weapon, 4/2, 4 mana): Deathrattle: Deal 1 damage to all minions.
Once the Class Challenges are done, the Heroic versions of all bosses will be unlocked. We'll update our heroic mode guide
with strategies for the Construct Quarter soon.
Like other Curse of Naxxramas> wings, the Construct Quarter costs $6.99 to download. Alternately, you can pay with 700 gold. Blizzard offers discounts to Hearthstone players buying multiple wings at a time. You can find the full price breakdown for the U.S. and Europe here.
There's only one more wing in Curse of Naxxramas to be released. Frostwyrm Lair will go live in a week with two bosses. I suspect these bosses will be more complex than usual because they're the final fights. Or maybe Blizzard's got some other surprise up their sleeves?
