Karazhan guide

Everything we know about One Night in Karazhan.

UPDATE: 11.08.16 8.02PM

Hi everyone, John from MetaBomb here. I wanted to give you a quick update on our Karazhan guide.

As I've mentioned before, I had planned to bring you a complete collection of comprehensive guides to all of the upcoming antics in Medivh's tower: Boss guides for Heroic and Normal, how to beat the Class Challenges and all of the awesome stuff that we've been looking forward to over the last few weeks.

Unfortunately, two problems have cropped up recently that have scuppered these well-laid plans.

The first is that a prolonged bout of seasonal illness has finally caught up with me and I've no choice but to miss the launch tonight/tomorrow (depending on whether you're in the US or EU timezones).

Now, I'd have pushed through with things regardless, were it not for the fact that it turns out the release schedule of Wings 2 and 3 just happens to occur slap-bang in the middle of what turns out to be an unfortunately timed week's holiday that can't be moved. In the best case scenario, then, I'd only have been able to bring you timely guides for the first and final Wings of Karazhan.

As you can imagine, this is all very frustrating. I'm as excited about the new Adventure as you are and it would have been a lot of fun to share strategies and explore Karazhan together. I hope you understand though why it's really not a good idea to commit to bringing you an almost certainly late series of efforts that don't reach the usual standards I have for you and the site.

Now, just to put things in perspective for a moment, I want to stress that this is simply a setback on a new sort of content for the site! Ignoring the brief holiday downtime, it's very much business as usual for the bread and butter of MetaBomb, which is creating and updating our massive suite of deck guides. I hope you continue to find these a useful and fun part of your Hearthstone life!

The new cards will take time to settle in and we'll make sure that every one of our core deck guides remain at the cutting edge of Hearthstone's wonderful metagame. On this front nothing changes, and we'll be more than ready to tackle the next Adventure, whenever that comes.

Thanks for your understanding and for all of your continued support of the site.

John - EIC, MetaBomb

(PS: There'll be loads of Karazhan content just a Google away, and Reddit's a great place for staying on top of the latest strategies!).
