Posts: 2,518
Seeing many threads across 'General Discussion' asking questions about Naxxramas, and the questions asked multiple times in a few popular threads, I thought that I will make a Naxxramas Q&A thread, which hopefully answers most of the commonly asked questions.

If you have a question, scroll through this wall of Qs&As, if the answer is not here, feel free to search other threads and/or make a post to address your question.

Questions and answers about Curse of Naxxramas:

Q. Do I have to pay entry fee for a wing once for all regions or is Curse of Naxxramas region specific?
A. Curse of Naxxramas is region specific. You will have to step into 'Arachnid Quarter' on every region during the launch event, to unlock it for free. Every other wing, you have to purchase with real money or gold per region. Simply - if you unlocked 'Plague Quarter' in Europe region, you will have to purchase it also in Americas region.

That's fine. Curse of Naxxramas must be unlocked separately for each play region. Just as the rest of your collection doesn't cross over, neither does Naxxramas.


Q. Do bosses follow the cards deck limit or do they cheat?
A. Bosses in Curse of Naxxramas play by their own rules.

The bosses of Naxxramas do not play by the rules. :)

So....I know it hasn't been stated, but it is fully possible for the bosses of Adventure mode to play outside the rules of "standard" play. This is to add to the fun, surprise and challenge of facing that boss. Also, it adds a new flavor to the encounters that separates them from your normal AI interactions.

As for the class challenges. Think of those more as puzzles that make you think and present unique opportunities for you to really think outside the box.

Story of how it happened:
07/22/2014 03:05 PMPosted by Rolkyr
Greeting Morgon,

I brought this issue up with Kel'thuzad. I have asked him to check into the deck lists of his minions and please to play fair. He laughed at me, told me to "kick rocks" then had me viciously attacked by Mr. Bigglesworth. As I ran away I heard him cry out "WE PLAY BY OUR OWN RULES MORTAL, YOUR RESTRICTIONS MEAN NOTHING TO US!".

I can discuss the matter with Dev, but we are all pretty frightened of that cat. So until we can find a way to make Kel'Thuzad listen or get a dog that cat won't eat, I am afraid the bosses of Naxxramas will be able to play their decks however they want. :/

Q. I defeated all heroic bosses in 'Arachnid Quarter' and did not receive my heroic card back! When do I get it?
A. The heroic card back is awarded for defeating every heroic boss in the whole Curse of Naxxramas, not only the bosses in the first wing.

Q. I don't have use for the new cards, why can't I disenchant them?

You're forgetting about arena and Naxx cards being available there once wing will be available for money/gold. It would be also nice to mention there are 30 new cards

You skipped the fact that you can't do dailies (except the 7 wins in any mode daily) in Naxxramas.

Source is on Page 13 of the thread "Official: Naxx costs 700 per wing". Too lazy to grab it :P

I really tried to cover only the most frequently asked questions. And I really hope this topic will be locked >.< I don't want this thread to become one of the few others, where people just repeat the question asked on the previous page.

I will update the main post, once I have more time to search for blue sources.

So this thread will become "you missed x and y", no I DID NOT. I left it out, because it is not a crucial information for % of player base.

What if I don't have enough gold to unlock a wing during the event? Will I be able to unlock it later?

Do we have to pay seperately to unlock Naxx in each different regional server, or can we buy it on one server and then have access to it on all of them?

Hey!

Naxxramas wings are same as your collection of cards and your progress. It is separate per region. For the future wings, you will have to buy them per region. The first wing is free, so you can unlock it for free as soon as you access it, make sure you do it on all three regions though.

Hope this helps.

One of the rewards for the Construct Quarter is Feugen, whose deathrattle is: If Stalagg also died this game, summon Thaddius, however, I cannot find a way to obtain Stalagg... Do they come as a package? If not, in what ways will we get Stalagg?

Hey!

I am unsure if there was an official announcement regarding Feugen and Stalagg. I do know from playing World of Warcraft that these two were part of Thaddius' boss encounter.

My bet would be that they are both the reward for defeating Thaddius in the Naxxramas adventure. Additionally, you get 2 cards per boss defeated (as the cards are not legendary). Legendary cards are awarded for the full clear of a wing. So either both Feugen and Stalagg are reward for defeating Thaddius, or one of them is the reward for defeating Thaddius and other one is the reward for defeating the whole wing.

Feugen and Stalagg are both rewarded when you defeat Thaddius.

This will be probably more of a Technical Issue. Try making a thread here:

If you were charged, I'd be surprised if it didn't go through even if the game crashed.

When the 2nd wing is released, if you don't get it, you should open a support ticket. A CSR rep would be able to resolve that in short order.

It would be nice if they added something into the game that tells you if you unlocked the rest of the wings even if they haven't been released yet so I could sleep better. ;) Well on the battlenet page it says they charged it for the 4 wings so I guess I'll be good :)
