Hearthstone: Naxxramas' Cursed Review
Post by Eorl @ 12:27pm 09/07/14 | 8 Comments
Blizzard has officially revealed the pricing details for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft's first expansion, Curse of Naxxramas. Initially, it may seem like a rather large price tag at $31.99 AUD for all five wings, the developer has offered a handful of ways for players to gain access to the new content.

According to the official Hearthstone blog, Naxxramas will be unleashing its deadly wings one at a time over a course of five weeks, unlike its original version in World of Warcraft. The Arachnid Quarter will come first, followed by Plague Quarter, Military Quarter, Construct Quarter, and Frostwyrm Lair.

Those wanting to save some pennies can gain access to the first wing for free during the month-long launch event. The first wing will house three bosses (Anub’Rekhan, Grand Widow Faerlina, and Maexxna), each of whom will add cards to your collection after beating them.

Pricing-wise, Naxxramas wings will go for 700 in-game gold a piece, or $8.99 AUD if you prefer the real world money method. Blizzard will also offer three packages depending on the amount of wings you own: $18.99 AUD for those owning the first two wings and want to buy the remaining three and $12.99 AUD for those who own the first three wings and want to buy the remaining two. Keep in mind that purchasing Curse of Naxxramas wings in bundles does not open or grant access to those wings faster than the one-wing-a-week schedule, but it does ensure that you’ll be able to dive into the next challenges as soon as they unlock.

Blizzard has also noted that a new Heroic Mode will be available once players have defeated all of the bosses for each wing. Players will be able to compete against exceedingly harder versions, and the chance to unlock a new card back for bragging rights.

Yeah, no thanks...

It'd have to be like a f*****g doubling of the card base for it to be worth that... I highly doubt it is, so I won't be buying / playing it anymore.

Wish it was like how the physical card game did it, where you actually co-op through the raids and fight the bosses with other people, I might have got it then

Last time I checked, gold wasn't too hard to grab by playing in-game, but that has been a number of months now.

Don't the daily quests give you 50-100 gold a day with every 3rd competitive match giving you 10 gold? can't imagine it would take long to get that.

Shrug, I already have enough gold saved to buy all the wings. Started saving around late May?

We've corrected the pricing details in the post, initially we were going off USD prices. AUD prices are $31.99 for the entire package or $8.99 for each individual wing. There are also three packages depending on the wings owned beforehand: $24.99 for those who own only the first wing (which will be free in the first month); $18.99 for those who own the first two wings; and $12.99 for those who own the first three wings.
