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.

      Blizzard encountered a bug where the client would disconnect after using Heart of Vir'naal and minions with the Invoke keyword, so they disabled Galakrond animations in Hearthstone until further notice.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey Folks,
      We are currently in the process of rolling out a hotfix that will disable the animations for Galakrond. The reason for this:
      We’ve found multiple occurrences in which Galakrond’s animations can cause the Hearthstone client to disconnect. The primary occurrence: when playing Quest Galakrond Shaman, we encountered (as well as received word) a bug where the client would disconnect after using Heart of Vir’naal + minions with the Invoke keyword.
      This is just a temporary solution that will fix the client disconnects. We are aiming to ship a client patch within the next week that will be the long-term fix for this issue.
      The team is continuing to keep an eye out for issues, so please do let us know if you encounter more pesky bugs 
      Cheers,
      Chris_Attalus

      DESCENT OF DRAGONS IS NOW LIVE!
      It has come to this. Rafaam and his League of E.V.I.L. have set the final stage of their plan into motion: to resurrect Galakrond, the progenitor of all dragonkind. But the League of Explorers is hot on their heels...and they're bringing a few dragons of their own.
      Take to the skies — Descent of Dragons is now live!
      WHAT'S INCLUDED
      Galakrond
      Those aligned with E.V.I.L. have the opportunity to resurrect Galakrond, who will manifest into one of five variations based on your class. Best of all, when you go to open your first Descent of Dragons card pack, you’ll recieve all five Galakrond cards for free! Learn more about Galakrond in our Draconic Details blog.

      New Keyword: Invoke
      A newly awakened proto-dragon is frightening enough on its own, but Galakrond's strength grows as his followers Invoke him.
      Playing any card with the Invoke keyword will enhance Galakrond's power and enable even greater devastation.
      Sidequests
      You may be familiar with quests, which provide rewards for completing specific objectives during your matches. Sidequests follow that tradition, but have shorter, easier-to-complete objectives to allow you to earn victory more quickly — or even complete multiple sidequests in one game.
      New Spells: Dragon Breath
      The mightiest dragons come with the mightiest dragon breaths. Gain the upper hand over your enemies with these powerful spells that become more powerful if you're holding a dragon.
      Login Rewards and Legendary Quests
      All players who log in to Hearthstone during Descent of Dragons will receive the five Galakrond cards above as well as two Shield of Galakrond cards.
      In addition, a new legendary quest line will be available starting today, granting Descent of Dragon packs, packs from Rise of Shadows and Saviors of Uldum, and a 200 Gold reward.
      Arena Rotation
      A new arena rotation awaits! As of today, the arena now includes cards from the following sets:
      Basic Classic Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament One Night in Karazhan Knights of the Frozen Throne Rastakhan's Rumble Descent of Dragons COMING SOON
      Galakrond's Awakening
      The final battle in the Year of the Dragon's solo adventure story arc is Galakrond's Awakening, coming this January! We won't spoil too much, but we hope you're ready to battle E.V.I.L. (or good) and collect 35 new cards! More details on Galakrond's Awakening will be coming soon.

      The Descent of Dragons content update launched with a few bugs that will be fixed in the near future. Namely, Sathrovarr was not intended to become unplayable, some cards are not working at all or showing a system error screen after trying to disenchant them.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Quick updates on where a few of the outstanding issues are:
      Sathrovarr : As a confirmation, Sathrovarr was absolutely not intended to become unplayable with the patch on Thursday. We know what caused this, and it’s going to require us to put a fix in to the launch of Descent of Dragons next Tuesday. As of right now, we expect Sathrovarr to be back to normal on Tuesday.
      Disenchanting Cards: Right now, some cards are showing a system error screen after trying to disenchant them. This is something we can fix on our side, and we’re working to get that out today before the weekend.
      [Hearthstone Battlegrounds] Rafaam’s Hero Power: Last night, we resolved an issue where Rafaam’s Hero Power wasn’t properly allowing a golden upgrade until after buying something. This should be working normally as of right now.
      Missing Cards / Deck Codes: We’ve seen a lot of varying reports of things with cards not working, and there are a few different things at play. We noted previously that as the “Treasures from the Tomb” wild event ended, decks containing the temporary wild cards are going to be unusable, but they may not clearly denote why. If a deck code isn’t working, that’s the first thing to check. Sathrovarr is also likely to cause some issues until we correct that next week. Finally, the team is currently investigating some reports that Treasures from the Tomb cards that were owned in a player’s collection may have disappeared after the event ended. As a reminder, all cards from that event were granted as temporary event cards - they were never actually added to your collection, but simply lived there as separate, special versions of those cards, even if you already had them in your collection. Those event cards are now gone, but anything that was in your collection before the event should still be there. If it isn’t, we’d appreciate more info on what cards you’re missing to help us track this one down.
