In the solo adventure Naxxramas the first boss on the fourth wing Patchwerk takes no fatigue damage. Was this intentional or just a bug? This happens on the normal and the Heroic version.

Patchwerk Naxxramas

1 Answer 1


This is intentional. The bosses in Adventure Mode don't always play by the rules.

Patchwerk starts with no deck but he does not attempt to draw a card at the start of his turn. This means he won't normally take fatigue damage.

However, Patchwerk is not immune to fatigue. If an effect does cause him to draw cards, such as Coldlight Oracle's battlecry, he will attempt to draw them and take fatigue damage as a normal player would.

  • A single Jeeves will cause Patchwerk to instantly die from fatigue.

    @freekvd Have you actually tested this? I've heard that it simply causes him to attempt to draw 3 cards. Still brutally effective of course- 21 damage over 2 turns and a kill at 3- but not instant. Jul 30, 2015 at 12:20
  • Just tried it, and apparently you are right. That's weird though, considering his card text.
