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.
