The fourth wing to be released for Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas expansion is the Construct Quarter. If you have not seen our reviews of Hearthstone or any of the expansion wings to this point they can be found here.
The Construct Quarter is the last bastion of defense for Naxxramas before entry to Frostwyrm Lair can be earned. The most difficult bosses await a player as Kel’ Thuzad throws everything but the kitchen sink in your way! The final boss for this wing is Thaddius, and like the Military Quarter will challenge you in every way possible.
The bosses within the Construct Quarter will challenge a player to think their way out of trouble as opposed to just throwing powerful cards at them. The rewards for victory are also more powerful and plentiful. First up is Patchwerk who actually has no deck of cards, and is just a brutal force himself. The reward for victory is The Undertaker. Defeating Grobbulous next will reward you with the Mad Scientist. The next boss Gluth’s reward is Zombie Chow. World of Warcraft players may find humor in this reward as it harkens back to the Raid Boss fight. Finally defeating Thaddius rewards players with the Wailing Soul and two legendary cards Fuegen and Stalagg.
The two legendary rewards can potentially summon Thaddius himself for a player if the conditions are met. This has the chance to turn the tide of any game to a player’s favor.
The two class challenges that are unlocked within the Construct Quarter are Priest and Warrior. Defeating these challenges will unlock the Dark Cultist and Death’s Bite respectfully. I found these challenges to be the most difficult to date.
Much like the Military Quarter previously the Heroic bosses within the Construct Quarter pose a significantly enhanced challenge for players. Building a deck specifically to defeat these challenges is highly recommended.
Overall the Construct Quarter did not disappoint as the final wing within Naxxramas. Playing through certainly felt as if the fights were building to a crescendo. Veteran players will find many new challenges awaiting them and will put a player’s deck-building skills to the test. Did you find the Construct Quarter to be as challenging as I did? Do you have an idea of what may lie next in Frostwyrm Lair? Sound off below with any thoughts and comments! Until next time good luck as Frostwyrm Lair opens on August 19th!
