Hearthstone - The Curse of Naxxramas Now Live!
The first content addition to Hearthstone is now live! It adds thirty new cards, fifteen boss encounters, class challenges, Heroic Mode, and more!

The adventure is divided into 5 different wings and each wing will cost 700 gold or $6.99 USD. If you pay using real money and buy wings in bulk, each wing will only cost $5 USD. If you play Naxxramas during the first month, you will receive the first wing for free.

  • Defeat 15 fearsome bosses to unlock a total of 30 new Hearthstone cards for your collection, including Legendary cards! Naxxramas cards can easily be searched for within My Collection using the search function.

  • Defeating all of the bosses within a wing unlocks the extremely challenging Heroic Mode of that wing. Defeating all of the bosses of Naxxramas on Heroic mode unlocks a new card back for your collection.
  • Five unique wings await those brave enough to venture into Naxxramas. The first wing, The Arachnid Quarter, will immediately be available to play for free for a limited time. The remaining four wings are immediately available for players to unlock with real money or gold, and will become accessible over a period of time once unlocked.
    • The Arachnid Quarter – A web choked maze filled with many-legged minions.
    • The Plague Quarter – Necromancers brew deadly plagues while a fungal monstrosity lies in wait.
    • The Military Quarter – Tireless undead knights perfect their deadly arts within these chambers.
    • The Construct Quarter –Abominations stitched together from the Scourge’s victims stomp through these slime soaked halls.
    • Frostwyrm Lair – Chilly abode of Sapphiron and the arch-lich Kel’thuzad himself. (A curse upon my air conditioning bill!)

    Long since has it been strictly only WoW; however WoW is still the main topic of the site (with other Blizzard products as secondary).
    I've never seen starcraft news on this site.

    Should be retitled Curse of Naxxramas: A Lesson in Patience

    Other than monster lag, I'm doing just fine. Cleared first wing on normal, now I'm going again on heroic.

    There's significant overlap in the WoW and Hearthstone community and it's not like there are constant posts about Hearthstone.

    Yes, but as with all major Blizzard game releases, we are mentioning it as well.

    You're most likely joking, but in the case your not.

    There's a WoW team.

    And there's a Hearthstone team.

    Surmount 9 diabolical Class Challenges that test your skills with each of the unique classes of Hearthstone!
    The only diabolical Challenge is to connect to the game on the European servers.
    Because is hard to have a good launch when you are such an inexperienced developer like Blizzard.
    Being their first online game launch we understand that they lack the knowledge to avoid those issues.

    True at all:

    Just wanted to clarify that this maintenance is not for the Curse of Naxxramas Adventure. We will be turning on Curse of Naxxramas for all regions at the same time some time after this maintenance is complete, but please do not expect Naxxramas to be available immediately following this maintenance.

    You're not getting any brownie points for excusing performance beyond mediocrity on behalf of Blizzard.
    Assuming he's doing brownie points.

    Curse founders have very close ties to Blizzard, and once MMO-C became part of Curse, it became essentially a Blizzard fan site, but still focused on WoW. It's not unusual to see front page news for other Blizzard products on here that have no relation to WoW.

    I read that, and I don't care. People come here for WoW news and they best remember that.

    People like this are never gonna believe anything so its silly to fight with them especially over something like this. Its summer, go outside. Or if you are anything like me you have other games you have put off to play wow. Go play one of those. The world is not ending, everything will be ok.

    What's the big deal? It's not like they are delaying WoW news to post this stuff.

    Paid content patches. It's really more like a mini expansion or DLC.

    Although they do allow you to use ingame gold as well.

    Also, it'll probably be a year before they do another.
