GnomeSayin-11972 submitted 25.2.1 Patch Notes 7 days ago

We’re in the process of rolling out Patch 25.2.1, a server-side hotfix patch with the following updates and bug fixes:

Battlegrounds Updates

  • Scabbs Cutterbutter, Tess Greymane, Illidan Stormrage, and Tamsin Roame have been returned to the Hero Pool.
  • Murozond has been returned to the Minion Pool.
  • Wasteland Assassin and Devourer of Souls have been removed from the Professor Putricide Hero Power pools. Possessive Banshee, Handless Forsaken, and a new minion, Cursed Shadow, are being added to the Hero Power pools.
    • Cursed Shadow is a Tier 5, 7/5 Undead with Stealth.
    • Dev Comment: Cursed Shadow is only being added to the Professor Putricide Hero Power pool, not the general Minion Pool.
  • The following heroes have less armor:
    • Galakrond and Infinite Toki have been moved to Armor Tier 1 (0 Armor).
    • Drek’Thar, Greybough, and Heistbaron Togwaggle have been moved to Armor Tier 2 (2-5 Armor).
  • The following hero has more armor:
    • Pyramad has been moved to Armor Tier 2 (2-5 Armor).

Arena Updates

  • Malignant Horror can no longer be drafted.
  • Warrior and Hunter have had the draft appearance rates of some high performing cards increased.

Duels Updates

  • Tome Tampering and Shockspitter have been banned from both deck building and card buckets.
  • The Cold Feet Pact passive treasure has been moved from Pool 2 to Pool 2 Ultra Rare.

Bug Fixes and Game Improvements

  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where the new Omen Demon Hunter Hero Skin’s Hero Power could not be upgraded through effects like Baku the Mooneater.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Sunfury Clergy unintentionally gained Rush.
  • [Battlegrounds] Fixed a bug where Discover effects could sometimes Discover non-Battlegrounds cards.
  • [Battlegrounds] Fixed a bug where Sinrunner Blanchy could gain infinite Reborn under certain circumstances.
  • [Battlegrounds] Fixed a bug where Putricide’s Creation could be tripled under certain circumstances. The triples were failed experiments that lost some of their combined powers; it’s better these Creations remain unable to be tripled.
  • [Battlegrounds] Fixed a bug where a Corpse Refiner made golden by Greta Gold-Gun would not sell for the right amount of Gold.
  • [Battlegrounds] Fixed a bug where a minion that received Reborn from Baltharak (one of the tokens generated by Mecha-Jaraxxus) would lose Reborn if tripled.
  • [Duels] Fixed a bug where the Hematology Hero Power always assumed the player had 3 unspent Corpses if the player had any.
  • [Duels] Fixed a bug where the Hematology Hero Power could hit 0-Cost cards in your hand.
  • [Solo Content] Fixed a bug where a card adjustment to Forsaken Lieutenant made one of the Book of Mercenaries encounters impossible to complete.

Very weird. I’ll pass this along, thanks.
GnomeSayin-11972 submitted 25.2 Known Issues 9 days ago

Patch 25.2 is now available, bringing with it the new Battlegrounds Season 3! We’ll be using this post to track issues that pop up during the 25.2 patch period.

The issues we’re tracking this patch include:

  • Battlegrounds: Minions that Baltharak (one of the Mecha-Demons generated by Mecha-Jaraxxus) Magnetizes to lose Reborn when the minion gets tripled.
  • Mercenaries/Acheivements: There is a Mercenaries achievement for Arfus, but Arfus will not be added to the game until a future patch.

We will update this post as we get more information to share.

Patch 25.2 kicks off Battlegrounds Season 3, featuring a new Hero, Undead and dual-type minions, and more!

Yeah we're looking into a way to fix this - Scourge Rager is just too eager to die it seems. 😅

Essentially, Battlecries actually happen right before a minion enters play (if you play Buffet Biggun with a Dun Baldar Bridge in play, the summoned Recruits from his Battlecry get buffed before Biggun himself gets buffed). So Scourge Rager dies before the game actually sees it played.

We agree that, while technically "correct", the current functionality is VERY counter to what you would expect with Jungle Giants or Making Mummies.

JohnEMcIntyre submitted Season 3 Clarification 15 days ago

Hey all, it's been great to see all the feedback on Season 3. I have seen a few reoccurring questions and wanted to address them.

  • The Undead Attack buffs from the two Nerubian minions also applies to minions summoned in combat, i.e. Reborn.
  • Dual-type minions will appear in any lobby with either minion in them.
  • Micro-Mummy is becoming an Undead/Mech.
  • Witchwing Nestmatron, Mythrax the Unraveler and Mechano-Egg have also been removed from the game.
  • Helping Hand and Smolderwing do not appear in shop but are token minions generated from other new minions.

If you want a sneak peak of Season 3, check out the Playtest Event tomorrow, 9am-3pm PT!

Yep. Female Dark Iron Dwarf, as shown by the skin tone, eye color, and hair color+glow. :)

GnomeSayin-11972 submitted Legendary Skin Product Description Correction 35 days ago

Hello all,

We’ve recently updated the product description on the Sylvanas Ranger General Legendary Bundle and we wanted to clarify that change.

Some (non-3D) premium Hero Skins are intended to include unique hero power VFX. For the new Legendary (3D) Hero Skins, we wanted the focus to be on the 3D hero model, so the hero portrait has a special animation when you use your hero power, instead. It was brought to our attention that the wording of the Legendary Hero Skin descriptions made it sound like Legendary Hero Skins would have both, so we corrected that wording to make the product description clearer.

This change applies to both the Arthas Menethil Bundle and the Sylvanas Ranger General Legendary Bundle. Customer Service will handle refunds for anybody who purchased these bundles prior to this clarification and wants a refund due to the change.

Yes it should! This will be fixed in a future patch :) (Along with other should-be-Undead tokens that we missed, including 2 others from Scholo 👀)

I mean, feel free to ask if you ever want clarity on something. I can't guarantee I'll always be able to answer, but I'm usually pretty available.

Cgsongbird commented on But I already got my hopes up 45 days ago

Well, we're going to try nonetheless. I recognize your skepticism, but hopefully we prove you wrong. If we don't then we'll keep trying until we get it right.

Cgsongbird commented on But I already got my hopes up 45 days ago

There is a balance patch coming! If we can bring things in line without needing Warsong style nerfs, then it's preferable to breaking decks by rotating Brann early.
