Patch Notes Updated to Include Mulligan Change and Heroic Card Back

6 posts in this topic


The patch for Karazhan went live yesterday, and as usual there were some hidden changes in the update notes under "Fixed various audio, graphical, gameplay, AI and UI issues". These notes have been updated a little since the original post.

We have already reported the majority of the changes, including the new costs of individual tokens. One thing that has also been changed according to the updated official notes is an important one concerning the opening mulligan. As of this patch, you only see your opponent's mulligan after making your own choice. That means that there is no longer any point waiting until the timer runs out to get additional information before making your decision. This should speed up play, especially in bigger tournaments where both players usually wait until the last second before clicking confirm.

Three new card backs were also added to the game. We already posted Medivh's Invitation, the card back for reaching Rank 20 in August. The other two are Karazhan Nights (pictured left), for purchasing all wings the Adventure within one week of launch, and The Blue Portal, which is obtained for beating the adventure in heroic mode.

Mulligan Change is the true MVP. Glad to see it finally implemented.

Also that Heroic cardback is sweeet ;)

I don't know if this has been there for a while as part of some previous patch, but I noticed this only now:

In adventure mode, there is now an option to "restart" which is pretty handy especially for heroic bosses where mulligan phase determines the outcome for some decks.

I did notice that if you're playing on Iphone (like I do most of my games), you can still see your opponent's mulligan.

      The latest Hearthstone community contribution allows you to train the skills needed to master Combo Priest: quick thinking, fast mouse movements, strategic decisions and on-the-spot calculations. What's more to ask?!
      Combo or OTK or APM Priest is a reiteration of Combo and Vivid Nightmare Priest that was born with The Boomsday Project thanks to two cards: Topsy Turvy and Test Subject. Dog is credited as the creator and true master of the deck:
      Many have subsequently tried and failed to pilot the deck, which can require almost 100 moves during the 75 seconds of a single turn. Pro players like Trump and Thijs have hilariously failed, while others like Disguised Toast and Kolento kept trying until they got the hang of it.
      Right now, you might be dreading that you don't have the IQ to play this deck. Fear no more: everything can be practiced and Patashu has made the tool for it! Combo Priest Simulator allows you to practice the OTK combo on your browser, while also timing you. You can change the parameters of the starting gamestate, too.
      In all seriousness, the deck's winrate is below average and it's honestly too much trouble for too little gain. Then again, slamming your opponent's face for 100+ damage is quite satisfactory. It would be awesome if someone was brave enough to bring this deck at a tournament: it would be the casters' nightmare!
      Apart from Combo Priest Simulator, we have a guide for Topsy Turvy OTK Priest here on Icy Veins; the guide breaks down the necessary steps of the combo in a useful priority list. Alternatively, you can listen to Aleco trying to explain how the deck works to Patrick (and actually succeeding) in the latest Icy Veins Podcast!
