Rise of Shadows Is Live Worldwide

Recommended Posts

The first expansion of the Year of the Dragon is now available all around the globe!

In Rise of Shadows, Hearthstone's nine classes are pitted against each other. On the one side, we have the League of E.V.I.L., who is consisted of Warlocks, Shamans, Rogues, Warriors and Priests. The E.V.I.L. classes utilise Schemes, which are spells that upgrade infinitely when you have them in your hand, and various cards that call back to previous Hearthstone mechanics.

Mages, Druids, Paladins and Hunters are the Defenders of Dalarans. They wield the new Twinspell Keyword: once you cast a spell with this Keyword, a second copy of the spell is added to your hand; The copy doesn't have Twinspell.

Lackeys are token minions generated by other cards. They are 1-mana 1/1s with powerful Battlecries. More of them will be added in the next Year of the Dragon expansions.

Rise of Shadows signifies the beginning of the Year of the Dragon, therefore we'll have the customary yearly rotation. The following cards are rotating out of Standard: Naturalize, Doomguard, Divine Favor , Genn Greymane, Baku the Mooneater, Black Cat, Gloom Stag, Murkspark Eel and Glitter Moth.

With Rise of Shadows, the Arena will start a regular rotation of available cards from both new and older expansions. Here’s which sets you’ll have access to when choosing cards in the Arena, starting April 9: Basic, Classic, Naxxramas, Whispers of the Old Gods, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, The Witchwood and Rise of Shadows.

      Blizzard released the 17.2.2 client patch for Hearthstone to fix a bug related to the closed shop that occurred due to a missing runtime dependency.
      (Source)
      We’re currently in the process of deploying a 17.2.2 client patch that will address the following items:
      Fixed a bug that would cause a crash on mobile when clicking the eye to see who is spectating. Fixed a few various issues that would lock the game state when playing certain cards from hand. Fixed a bug where some players in Europe were only given the option of Warrior as their free deck after graduating the new player ranks. Fixed a bug where the shop would be closed when launching Hearthstone due to a missing runtime dependency. If the shop is still closed after updating to 17.2.2, try swapping to another region on the launcher and swapping back before opening Hearthstone again.
      The incorrect Mana display bug for mobile users will be fixed in the next update.

      Any updates on when the incorrect mana bug for mobile players will be fixed?
      Hey! This will be fixed in our next major update.

      A new blog post has been released, detailing a dozen card changes coming to the game on Monday 18th of May.
      Shaman is getting some much needed help, since three of its cards will be buffed - although it is debatable if these buffs will be enough to move the class out of the bottom.
      As far as the nerfs are concerned, two more Demon Hunter cards (who would have thought?) are getting toned down. Scavenger's Ingenuity, Shadowjeweler Hanar, Blackjack Stunner, Imprisoned Scrap Imp, Bloodboil Brute, Bloodsworn Mercenary are also getting tweaked.
      Nerfed cards will be eligible for a refund until June 1st.
      The patch also brings a bug fix for Ethereal Conjurer, which was causing the game to lock by not offering any Discover options. 
      Don't forget you can grab a free Nemsy until May 19, as part of Patch 17.2.0.
