WoW - Legendary Quest - The Thunder Forge Scenario Easy Tactic

The night before last I was tooling around The Isle of Thunder doing the dailies and I finally hit exalted with the Black Prince. I had all of the Sigils or whatever and the auction house is laden with cheap Trillium so this was the sticking point.

Well tonight I dinged 'Exalted'. So I hearthed back and bought up my Trillium and went and handed in my quests.

The next quest in the legendary chain is The Thunder Forge

Here you have to go to the Thunder Forge and help Wrathion :

a) Outside by killing stuff. Easy. Stand in blue orbs.
b) Inside by helping the Defender protect the Blacksmith. Harder and Hectic. Keep the Defender topped up on HP for more damage.
c) Inside again. Right royal pain in the arse!! I was trying all kinds of tactics. Once all my gear was red I was dreading hearthing out and having to redo everything (you don't need to apparently, while dead you can go outside and resurrect and call your repair mount.)!

But I didn't need to. Three attempts of the following strategy got me the quest complete, even with all my armour at 0%!!

You resurrect at the door by the spirit healer then run down the steps and then click all of the anvils whilst taking the smallest circular route you can around the central spire. Quick as you can. Speed boost may help here! Potions, enchants ... anything.

Yes. Forget saving anvils for insanity. Click all the anvils as quickly as you can to give the defender massive DPS boost and then have a pop at the Sha yourself.

Twice I was close but the insanity got me. The third time the Sha was already at 21% when I got within range and after 1 judgement the Lance appeared.

Wrathion 1 - 0 Sha of Amalgamation

Hearthstone - Crazy Game Story

Tonight's crazy game story is yet again revolving around the Knife Jugalo.

My opponent had nothing on the board, I had the good old Jugalo.  On turn 4 he played Leroy Jenkins.

It, of course, summoned the 2 whelps which, of course, triggered the Knife Juggler special trick. The odds were high that at least one knife would hit Leroy, and pretty good they both would. Which they did! LOL!

Hearthstone - Never Concede

Never, EVER concede a game in Hearthstone.

I was playing with the pally against a druid (my nemesis).

At the end of his turn he already easily had lethal on the board and I had two pretty poor cards.

I played Onyxia and ended turn. All he had to do was hit me in the face.

He proceeded to take out my other cards leaving me with the Dragon Queen and two 1/1s. I could not believe it!

It was now my turn. He had 19 health. I was in single figures.

I popped the Shattered Sun Cleric on Ony and then popped the Blessed Champion on her too. Making her up to 18 attack. So I smacked him in the face and then killed him with a 1/1 whelp!

Hearthstone - Hunter Class Challenge - Loatheb

Now that the second batch of class challenges are opened I had a go at them. The Mage one was easy but the Hunter one was a little out there.

You just get loads of spiders with a death rattle of putting a beast card into your deck. I thought he was bugged at first as he had a health of 75!!! I was wiped off the board pretty quick

The second go I got a few beast up and he put some spores up which I ignored, then I did something and suddenly my remainder 2 beasts had attacks in the 30s!!

It turns out that if you kill the spores then all your minions get +8 attack.

Well that's going to make short work of that 75 health!!

Third time lucky, he hit the floor in double quick time!

Hearthstone - Druid Class Challenge and Quarter 2

I've been on holiday for a few days, and of course the second Quarter opened whilst I was away.

Whilst I was waiting for that to open I have been trying the class challenges. The rogue one I got down easily, but the druid one has me stumped. Faerlina gets me all the time ... easily /sadface

So, back to Quarter 2. This wasn't quite so easy.

I used the Mage deck again and one-shot the first boss but the last 2 bosses each took 2 attempts. Still, not too bad.

Hearthstone - Quarter 1 - Maexxna

The first 2 bosses were easy sauce, Surely the Spider Queen was going to rip me a new one and lay all her eggs in it. In two weeks I'm going to have a big boil burst and millions of little Maexxnas are going to come flooding out. Yeah?

No! Maexxna went down just as easily as the first two bosses.

What deck have I been using this whole time. The low budge mage deck from Icy Veins.

Here's the screen shot just before I take my final turn...

Kel is a little shocked ...

Yay, another legendary, if a little crap ...

I'm not the only one who thinks that card is a little crap ...

Oh well, time for the Druid and Rogue class challenges which I have just unlocked.

Or maybe not. The whipped my ass! Special indeed ...

Hearthstone - Quarter 1 Boss 2

After the easy first boss I thought it was going to get harder.

It didn't ...

Kel, was nonplussed ...

Another slot opened ...

Hearthstone - Quarter 1 Boss 1

This morning I made my first forays into Naxxramas.

I was a little concerned as on Thursday night the lad had been playing it all night and had failed to get one single boss down :(

So in I go to have a pop at Anub'Rekhan.

Well, I'm happy to report that, as you can see below, he didn't last long!

One shotted!

OK, one down two to go ...

Hearthstone - First Look at Solo Adventures

Tonight, with little time on my hands, I logged into Hearthstone for a quick look at Naxxramas.

First off, when you first open up Hearthstone, you now have a new menu item - Solo Adventures.

I can't remember what was there before. Was there anything?

Right, so when we go into Solo Adventures we get another menu. This menu includes the old practice mode as well as the new Adventure.

Selecting the Naxxramas adventure currently only gives us the Normal mode. We haven't unlocked the other modes yet!

So lets select 'Normal' Mode.

We get told that the necropolis is being opened for the first time. How helpful!!!

The first wing is free! Waheey!! So we get to go into the Arachnid quarter for nuffink! Which is a good job as I thought it was 500g per wnig, but it isn't: it's 700g per wing.

Next time: Inside the Arachnid Quarter.
