Choose One Minions

Rank 20 Floor

Players that achieve Rank 15 or higher during their Hearthstone career can no longer fall below Rank 20. This should ensure better matches for rank 20 to rank 25 players.

Winter Veil!

Game Improvements & Bug Fixes
  • Game Mechanics Update – Different damage redirection effects can chain with each other, but each one will only occur once. Re-directed damage is applied before modifiers (e.g. Cursed Blade) and will only damage the final target once.
  • Added a black and purple sparkle effect to indicate when cards and powers that normally provide healing will do damage instead (such as when affected by Auchenai Soulpriest).
  • The Rogue Quest card, Crystal Core, now applies to minions in your deck, rather than applying after they are drawn.
  • Enchantment tiles now use a square border like history tiles.
  • Deathrattles that move a card to hand or deck will no longer sometimes prevent its other Deathrattle effects from triggering.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent Augmented Elekk from activating.
  • Tracking will no longer sometimes make a card invisible when your hand is full.
  • Resolved various minor UI and visual issues.
  • Resolved several interaction issues in single-player content. Set watermarks will no longer appear on non-collectible cards.
  • New Player Experience
  • An Undo button is now available after disenchanting a Wild card when in New Player Ranks.
  • When at Legend in both Standard and Wild, if the Wild rank is higher, it will once again be shown on the Quest Log and Friends List.

Not sure I understand the wording regarding the quest rogue nerf. It wasn’t really ‘after they were drawn’ given that stuff that was created (annoy-o-trons from giggling, frogs from hex) would appear as 4/4s. But presumably this means it will just make your minions in your deck 4/4 (thus also making the annoy-o-trons and frogs their normal stats). Also presume minions come back as their normal stats rather than 4/4s after vanish/shadowstep?

Sounds like they finally wiped quest rogue out of existence. Thank god.

I don't think so. It seems that they make minions in your deck 4/4 instead of making them 4/4 when they are drawn. It may interact with some cards that check your deck, for example Oakhearth.

      The Season of Rastakhan has begun and today we have the first round of the Brawl of the Champions.
      As already explained, the Rumble Run is being brought into the Tavern Brawl and you can play one of the special Rumble Run decks against real opponents. Each class has three different Shrines, that promote different playstyles and are accompanied by premade decks that synergise with their respective Shrine.
      Here are the Shrines for this week:
      Druid: Bonds of Balance - At the end of your turn, gain Attack equal to your hero's Attack Hunter: Halazzi's Guise - Whenever you summon a Beast, it gains Rush, Taunt, or Poisonous. Mage: Jan'alai's Flame - Your Hero Power costs (O). Whenever it kills a minion, refresh it. Paladin: Shirvallah's Grace - After you cast a spell on a friendly minion, cast a copy of it on this one. Priest: Bwonsamdi's Tome - After you cast a spell, add a random Priest spell to your hand. Rogue: Bottled Terror - Your other minions have Stealth. Deathrattle: Give your minions +2 Attack. Shaman: Krag'wa's Grace - Your spells cost (2) less. Warlock: Blood Pact - Your spells cost Health instead of Mana. Warrior: Akali's Horn - Your minions have "Overkill: This can attack again". Unsurprisingly, the Shrines that are good in the Rumble Run are also effective versus actual opponents. This bunch of Shrines is quite decent, with the Priest and Mage ones being standouts. The weakest classes for this week are Warlock, Warrior and Hunter.
      The Brawl of the Champions itself, like all Tavern Brawls, rewards a Classic card pack upon victory. However, you can complete the seasonal repeatable quest by playing the Brawl 3 times to earn a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack.

      Joseph Magdalena is here to talk about the Season of Rastakhan event, which will begin on February 13.
      As we already know, this event will start in a couple of days and it will last until March 3. It's all about the Tavern Brawl mode during the three-week Season of Rastakhan as each week you will get a special quest to play 3 Tavern Brawls; the quest will award a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack.
      The Tavern Brawl will be the same each week and it's called the Brawl of Champions. Remember the Rumble Run? Well, now you will get to play against real opponents as one of the heroes of the Rumble Run, along with their special Shrine and complimentary deck. Since each class has 3 different Shrines in the Rumble Run, the Shrines for each class will be different each week and you will be able to swap classes if you choose so.

      Due to Update 13.2 going live a few hours later than intended, the Lunar New Year event will last one more day.
      The event will now finish on February 13 in the US and February 14 in Europe. Therefore, everyone will get an extra quest that awards both Gold and Arcane Dust! Don't forget that the day the Lunar Festival concludes, a new Tavern Brawl-centered event will begin: the Season of Rastakhan.

      Hey everyone!
      Due to the delays we hit yesterday with recent update pushing into the time for the Lunar New Year event, we are going to be extending the end date by a full day. The event will now last until February 13.
      Cheers and thanks again for your patience!

      After a small delay, the latest Hearthstone update is here bringing changes to five cards and the Lunar Festival seasonal event. After the Lunar Festival, there will be a new event, the Season of Rastakhan, with thematic Tavern Brawls and special rewards.
      Some juicy card changes have been implemented with this update. Cold Blood, Flametongue Totem, Hunter's Mark and Emerald Spellstone have had their mana cost increased by 1, while Equality will now cost 4 mana (up from 2).
      With this patch, the Lunar New Year event is now available for a week. Starting from today and until February 12, you can login to get a free Golden Fireworks Tech and enjoy quests that award both Gold and Arcane Dust. The Lunar New Year Bundle is also available in the Shop for $20 or 20 euros; it contains 30 packs in total, 10 from each of the Year of the Raven expansions.
      Right after the Lunar Festival, a new event will start: the Season of Rastakhan will last from February 13 up to March 3. This event is focused on the Tavern Brawl mode, with three different Brawls centered around picking a Rumble Champion and a Loa shrine. Moreover, during that period each Wednesday you will get a special repeatable quest to play 3 Tavern Brawls. The reward for this quest is a Rastakhan's Rumble card pack, so in total you will get three packs.
      Two new card backs have been added: Mark of Hakkar and Kul Tiras (the March 2019 Ranked Play Season card back). There's a dedicated blog post about the Mark of Hakkar card back, which can be acquired if you play against another player who has it. Αnd how do you originally get it? Well, it seems some players have been randomly selected and already have it in their collection and it's their job to spread the madness...
      You can check out the card backs in the patch notes below:

      Card Backs
      Mark of Hakkar Kul Tiras Game Improvements
      Fixed an issue that could cause cards that copy and set minion Health to a specific value to incorrectly activate “while damaged” effects. Fixed an issue that would cause Augmented Elekk to shuffle a copy of a card drawn by Tracking into the deck. Corrupted Blood no longer benefits from Spell Damage. Spellbender can no longer attack itself when activated by The Beast Within. Corrupting Mist and Reckless Experimenter can no longer incorrectly cause Immortal Prelate to be removed from the hand or deck. Fixed an instability issue that could occur when Book of Spectres drew multiple copies of Corrupted Blood. Fixed an instability issue that could occur when attempting to view an enemy minion as it’s being returned to an opponent’s hand. Gral, the Shark now works properly when executing its battlecry more times than there are minions left in your deck. Mecha’thun that has been transformed will no longer incorrectly play its original effects when destroyed. Astral Raptor Overkill animations will no longer play multiple times. Copied Zombeasts now correctly keep their Zombeast visual aura. The enchantments from Clutchmother Zavas now collapse into a single enchantment banner. [Rumble Run] Fixed a bug where damage from healing due to Bwonsamdi's Covenant was not properly being credited to the source of the damage. [Rumble Run] Fireslinger now stops casting Fireballs if there are no valid targets. [Rumble Run] Fixed an issue with Tribute from the Tides not granting extra battlecries if it was damaged while buffed. [Rumble Run] Casting an Overload spell while affected by Electra Stormsurge now triggers Overcharged Totem once for each cast. [Rumble Run] Fixed an instability issue that could occur when playing Bouncing Blade while the Pirate’s Mark Shrine is in play. [Mobile] To reduce the initial size of the Hearthstone mobile app, some sound files are now an optional download. [Mobile] Hand and mana are now moved aside when Choose One cards are displayed. [Android] Background downloads are now displayed as a notification. (source)
