Users Credited for Naxxramas Store Issues, Goblins vs Gnomes Data
Remember back at Naxxramas release when there were some problems with purchasing Naxxramas wings? That problem has been ongoing for some players, but Blizzard has an update now, and they're even crediting accounts with a whopping
40 packs and 700 gold in addition to refunding their purchase
! Other users have reported
as much as 1500 gold
Here's Bilzzard's update on the issues:
Our development team has continuously been hard at work at investigating issues surrounding the Naxxramas launch that result in the in-game Shop being closed and other purchasing issues. In the course of this ongoing investigation, we have been able to steadily resolve issues over time, but we recognize not everyone is back to a working state yet. It’s past time for an update.
First, some good news. We recently applied a fix for many of those who have been affected by this issue. Emails with additional information will be sent to those affected by this fix.
With the release of the Goblins vs. Gnomes patch, we will also be rolling out fixes that will re-open the Shop for those who remain affected. Upon logging in once the upcoming Gobins vs Gnomes patch is applied, Shop access will be made available to this group of players.
Additionally, our engineers are continuing to work on improvements to our payment system to make sure that our players have a reliable experience when purchasing Hearthstone products. This is a top priority for our team and we are committed to continuously improving our services.
We recognize that having a closed Shop is unacceptable for even a short time, and we know that some of you have been in this stuck state for a very long while. We can do better, we will do better, and we apologize deeply for the long wait as we've worked to resolve these issues. We are close to resolving this for everyone and will be aggressively monitoring purchases to ensure that these issues will not occur again in the future.
We are investigating and working on a known issue that is locking characters into the "Shop Closed" state after attempting a purchase. This state is affecting both gold and real money purchases.
Currently we have identified affected accounts and are working on creating a resolution. As updates become available, this thread will be updated with any new information.

Hearthstone is Officially Naxxed Out
We did it, you guys. We killed all of the bosses in the Naxxramas solo adventure. We out-dpsed Patchwerk, charged through Thaddius and cooled off the Frostwyrm Lair. Now that Kel'Thuzad has been put down and all of the cards are in play it's time to review the last two sets we have earned. This is the moment we were all waiting for as now all of the exciting new combinations and decks are possible. The last weekend of tournaments and ladder play were a great example of the life that 30 new cards breathed into the meta game.
Winning decks featured plenty of s, s and s. The tournament scene is no longer being overrun with Zoo Warlocks and Miracle Rogues, although Hunters have stepped up to replace them. It is an exciting new era and now that this first major content expansion has completed we can start delving into specific decks again next week. For now let's look at the rest of the Naxx set and grade each card individually.
Keep reading for a full evaluation of the Construct Quarter and Frostwyrm Lair cards.

Frostwyrm Wing Launch Guide
Against Sapphiron, you can't really play minions because of his hero power --if you do play minions, you just have to be clever about it.
The fight itself is fairly simple: he has mostly weak cards and he will play a few each turn along with using his hero power. There are a few creative ways you can go into beating him.
The first--and most recommended way--is to play Warrior. Warrior works excellently here because they have weapons, removal, and charge cards. Being able to charge means you can play the minion, even if it will get destroyed on the next turn. Cards like along with comboed with and can make short work of him. and other cards that have charge are also valuable. Warrior also works because of cards like for removal and board control plus its weapons such as .
It would also be possible to play Hunter as they have cards such as and other charge granting cards. Unfortunately Hunter has less weapons, making it less viable.

Kel'Thuzad isn't that hard of a fight even though he initially looks intimidating due to his hero power's strength. Because he constantly plays Zombie Chows, you're able to heal back up the damage from his hero power, . He's a rush fight, pure and simple--the damage he unleashes is too much in the early game to be anything else.
Once he loses his starting armor, the fight becomes different; his hero power changes from to so he's no longer attacking you to the face. Because it costs eight mana to use his new hero power which is essentially if you can rush him down you can get significant damage before he even has a chance to use it.
The best deck to use against Kel'Thuzad is a zoo deck that burn through his armor while also not giving him giant cards to use his hero power on. Upon breaking his armor and switching to phase two of the encounter, he will summon two cards to deal with.
Be aware that he will cast if he has it, meaning you can either rush and hope he never draws it--or try to play around it by rarely overwhelming the board. He also has AoE removals such as and to help stall out the game until he can perform his board clear. We found that rushing worked well, but ultimately was luck dependent; if he drew either one of his cards, it could prove devastating and game throwing.
