#007 – Legend of the Innkeeper – “The Military Quarter”
Welcome to the Legend of the Innkeeper. I’m Vastidious and I’m Ariannwyn. We’re glad you could join us for our 7th episode.
This week we are talking about…
Naxxramas – Wing #3 – The Military Quarter
What did you do this week?
1. Activision releases quarterly results.
In the quarterly results, they specifically mention Hearthstone as one of the reasons that they did well and are looking forward to continued success. …”the company was “very pleased” with the engagement of Hearthstone and its single-player adventure, Curse of Naxxramas.”
“The fact that last week was our strongest week ever for Hearthstone in terms of both revenue and engagement, I think is a really strong sign,” Morhaime said. “It’s important to note that we still have yet to bring the game to Android and iPhone devices, and if you look at the response we got from bringing Hearthstone to iPad, which brought in millions of new accounts on Battle.net, I think there’s a lot of engagement and opportunity around those platforms as well.”
Since much of the hype had calmed down around Naxxramas, although it picks up each week when a new wing is launched, I thought we need to get back to doing educational segments.
And in order to do our best to serve you, our listener, I’d like to ask for your assistance. What are you struggling with in the game (other than just plain winning). What are you questions that you’d love to get answered? Please take a moment, visit our website and send us your questions.
Will we be able to answer all the questions? I don’t know. Maybe, maybe not. But we will work to find out together how to answer them as best as we can. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should we talk about Arena? Deck Building? Constructed?

Main Segment: Naxxramas Wing #3 – Military Quarter
The third wing of Naxxramas has opened up. Overall what are our thoughts at this stage of working through it? Normal mode? Heroic Mode?
Let’s look at each boss individually.
Boss #1: Instructor Razuvious
His hero power is “Deal 3 damage.” (Deal 4 damage in Heroic mode). I beat him in normal with my Zoo deck. I did finally beat him in Heroic but I forgot which deck I used. Reward: Dancing Swords (3 mana – 4 dmg / 4 health minion – Deathrattle: Your opponent draws a card)
Boss #2: Gothik the Harvester
His hero power is “Draw a card” (Draw a card and gain 1 mana in heroic) I also used my Zoo deck to clear this one out.
Reward: Spectral Knight (5 mana – 4 dmg / 6 health minion – Can’t be targeted by spells or Hero powers)
Boss #3: The Four Horsemen
His hero power is “Draw 2 cards”. (Draw 2 cards in heroic). I don’t remember.
Reward: Deathlord (3 mana – 2 dmg / 8 health minion – Taunt Deathrattle: Your opponent puts a minion from their deck into the battlefield)
Once you beat all 3 Heroes, you will receive the card, Baron Rivendare (4 mana – 1 dmg / 7 health minion – “Your minions trigger their deathrattles twice”)
The class challenge uses a pre-made deck to go against a pre-selected opponent. It’s designed to be focused on what each class does well. This wing saw the release of the Shaman and Warlock challenges. Win you complete a challenge, you get a special class specific card.
Class Challenge: Shaman
When you complete the challenge you get the Reincarnate card (2 mana, Destroy a minion, then return it to life with full health)
Class Challenge: Warlock
When you complete the challenge you get the Voidcaller card. (4 mana, Deathrattle: Put a random Demon from your hand into the battlefield.)
Reviews and Emails
Zuhandenheit – Father/daughter duo is ADORABLE (for casual/new players only) – 4 stars
“This might be the most adorable podcast for Hearthstone. Hosted by a father and daughter, they have professional and sometimes sassy commentary. This podcast isn’t geared for advanced players looking for the news and strategy, so that’s not what you will find here. Honestly, I keep listening because the hosts relate well and I like keeping abreast of where they’re at in the game (kind of like a reality show that you keep up with just to see what they’re up to). They admit up front that they are casual players and the podcast seems to give them an outlet to stay interested in the game. Constructive criticism I would provide is differentiating yourself from the other casual Heartstone podcasts that are out there. These casual podcasts all pretty much do the same thing by running down the basic news, what they played that week, and reading reviews. I would add a section or re-tool the existing format that makes the content memorable and creative. Keep up the good work and I hope to have as articulate a daughter as the one that speaks on this podcast. Both hosts are very good natured.
Heard back from from Chysonllite, who had problems with the audio quality on epsiode #5. First of all, he’s a guy and episode 6 was MUCH better.
