It has now been four weeks since Hearthstone launched it’s Curse of Naxxramas dungeon, and the final wing has now been released. Players can now head to the Frostwyrm lair to take on two extremely powerful bosses: Sapphiron and Kel’Thuzad. As with all wings, you can purchase access to it with either 700 in-game coins, or $6.99 USD. If you haven’t purchased all of the previous wings yet, you’ll need to do that first (as well as defeat all of their bosses). There is a special deal for purchasing all remaining wings, and that’s $5 for each one.

Frostwyrm Lair Rewards
In the final area of Naxxramas, there are six cards to be unlocked: four standard, one legendary, and one class specific for Paladins. The Class Challenge is against the final boss, Kel’Thuzad, and the reward is one Avenge card, which is a 1 mana cost secret that gives a friendly minion +3/+2 when one of your minions dies.
Defeating the first boss in the lair, Sapphiron, rewards the player with Echoing Ooze x2. This is a 2 mana cost, 1/2 minion with a Battlecry that summons an exact copy of this minion at the end of the turn. If you are playing against an opponent with this card, you’ll want to either silence or transform the minion to prevent it from replicating itself over and over again.
Kel’Thuzad rewards Shade of Naxxramas x2. This is a 3 mana cost, 2/2 minion with Stealth, and it gains +1/+1 at the start of your turn. Defeating Kel’Thuzad also means you have completed the wing (and the entire raid for that matter), which rewards you with a Ke’Thuzard card. This is an 8 mana cost, 6/8 minion that summons all friendly minions who died during a turn, at the end of that turn.
