Blizzard will be giving away three free packs of Kobolds & Catacombs as reciprocation for the Daily Quest bug which has persisted since the launch of the new set.

Beginning with the launch of Kobolds & Catacombs, the majority of the player base has been experiencing a number of issues with Hearthstone's Daily Quests. They rarely show up when they are supposed to, and for some they haven't been showing up at all. As Daily Quests are the primary source of Gold in Hearthstone, this bug has been causing quite a stir on Reddit and the official Blizzard forums.

Today we received our first official update on the Daily Quest bug. The update offers some solutions to the issue for players who are still experiencing it, and promises to deliver three free Kobolds & Catacombs packs to all players some time in early January.

Blizzard Logo Daily Quest Issue: Update Dec. 21

Greetings,

Thanks for helping to make the launch of Kobolds & Catacombs legendary! Millions of players joined us to explore the vast kobold dungeons, and we hope all your adventures into the depths have been incredibly fun. 

After launch, we discovered something not-so-fun: an issue that delayed some players from receiving new daily quests after logging in, largely due to the unexpected impact that so many Dungeon Runs had on our services. We immediately set to work investigating the issue and implemented hotfixes to resolve it. We’re still working on it, but at this point the delay is significantly reduced, and in most cases players will now see their daily quests immediately upon log in.

Due to the nature of the issue, some players may still experience a delay between 10-30 minute after logging in to get their daily quest. Here are some steps you can take to prompt the quest log to update if you are not already seeing new quests upon login.
 
  • • Check your quest log 10-30 minutes after logging in for the first time after quests reset. You need not remain logged in for that time.

    • Manually refresh the quest log by pushing the Quest Log button.

    • Play games in Play Mode or Arena (Note that Dungeon Run will not cause the quest log to update). 

    • Note: If you happen to complete your quest without seeing the quest log update, you’ll still be properly rewarded.


We’re currently working on short-term solutions that should soon make these additional steps unnecessary, and we plan on implementing better long-term solutions in the new year. 

We understand how important daily quests are to the experience of Hearthstone, and we’re sorry for any confusion or frustration affected players might have experienced. As a celebration of Kobolds and Catacombs and a thank you to affected players for being patient while we worked to fix this issue, we’re sending all Blizzard players three Kobolds & Catacombs card packs, for free, on us!

Your free card packs will arrive via Blizzard Battle.net gifting in early January. To redeem on mobile, just log into Blizzard Battle.net via your favorite browser. If you’re on PC, you can click the gift icon on the upper right next to your Battletag. If your packs don’t appear in-game after you claim them, please try restarting Hearthstone.

Thanks for joining us in the tavern, and we wish you warmth and joy for the holidays!

It's really bad, because you can't complete some quest without knowing what they are like play murloc pirates or play cards of a class, they require a lot of cards played and it's very rare you can do it randomly because that means playing 50 cards of each class every day to find a quest.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
