Have you been on the edge of your seat waiting for Hearthstone's 'Curse of Naxxramas' expansion to go live? Are you like this guy or this guy, anxiously waiting by your PC or iPad? Well, wait no more. The Naxxramas expansion is now live!

Other updates included in the latest patch on iOS include improved stability, intuitive tooltips, an improved Shop interface, new music tracks, and a refined friends list. AI in Practice Mode has also improved, to help prepare you for Naxxramas's 15 bosses.

Be sure to grab the latest Hearthstone update, either from Battle.net or from the App Store. The expansion will be available as soon as you launch the game following the update. An in-game message acknowledges that there may be some Shop issues, so if you can't buy it yet, just keep hammering away. For more on the cards available, check out the Hearthstone Facebook page.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Now I only need to grind out 210 wins (less a few quests) to unlock one of the four wings. Can hardly wait.

        This is extremely misleading. Assuming you play once a day, getting 40 gold for each quest, the max it will take you is 18 days assuming you lose every game you play and you only get the quests that have you casting 40 spells or summoner 20/30 minions. Assuming you win at least 3 games a day, which is pretty normal, you will get an extra 10 gold per day. It is very likely for you to be able to get enough gold in 2 weeks of extremely casual play.

        Additionally, if you are good at Arena, you can play that and get the gold from that to unlock Naxx.

          I do like my Mage cast spells for the quest deck. I win with it sometimes too.

      Got up to Maexxna on Heroic Mode before losing a match. Pretty fun.

      Holy shit the LAG!

      Every action is taking 10-15 seconds. This is unbearable.

      So, I didn't realize I would have to have every class unlocked first. Does that mean I have to do that before I can claim my free part of the expansion? What is the timeline on the free part? How do I claim the free part?
