Hearthstone: Important Hotfix To Many Bugs Including Timing Interactions

Recommended Posts

The release of Whispers of the Old Gods has not been without problems. Although the servers have been running smoothly for the most part, the introduction of the cards has created many bugs and inconsistencies in gameplay. This article looks at some of those. Many were corrected in today's Hotfix.

- Addressed an issue in the Blackrock Mountain adventure where Moira Bronzebeard would attack minions that do not have Taunt.

- Addressed an issue where the interaction between Mad Scientist, SI Agent, and Mirror Entity was not resolving as intended.

- Addressed an issue where the interaction between Wild Pyromancer and Haunted Creeper’s Deathrattle were not resolving as intended.

- The reward cards Old Murk-Eye and Captain’s Parrot can now be crafted and disenchanted and can no longer be acquired through their respective Quests.

- Addressed an issue where Ancient Harbinger would add 10-cost spells to the hand rather than 10-cost minions.

- Addressed an issue where Forlorn Stalker was able to buff Deathrattle weapons in the hand rather than Deathrattle minions.

- Addressed an issue where playing Cabal Shadow Priest while Brann Bronzebeard was in play alongside 5 other minions would destroy the stolen minion.

- Addressed an issue where playing Forbidden Healing at 0 mana with Spell Power in play would cause it to deal damage.

(Mac) Addressed an issue where opening the friends list would cause a crash.

A few of these are more important than they first sound. There have been a lot of timing interactions acting strangely since Whispers of the Old Gods was released. The Wild Pyromancer fix in particular was important, as it was changing the way that Patron Warrior mirror matches were played. Before the patch, it was possible to reduce your Wild Pyromancer to one health, and then play Whirlwind. The Whirlwind would trigger putting the Pyromancer to 0 health. It would then trigger again before dying, often on a board of full of Grim Patrons. This created a way to clear, or at least deal with, the opposing board. This is no longer possible in this way.

The Forbidden Healing bug sounds pretty trivial, but as it was dealing 0 damage, rather than healing for 0, it was enabling people to use spell damage to abuse the bug.

The Moira Bronzebeard bug was actually making it impossible to complete that part of the adventure. Ancient Harbinger and Forlorn Stalker were simply not working as intended.

Finally, Old Murk-Eye and Captain's Parrot have been updated. These cards being a part of Standard drops, and also craftable was apparently intentional to allow people time to finish the quests to earn them. I believe that they will also no longer appear from cards such as Murloc Knight and Tomb Spider due to this change.

Competitors at DreamHack Austin have been given extra time to submit decks due to these changes.

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.
