Recommended Posts

Today's huge patch 14.4, aka the Rise of the Mech, brings us a whole lot of new features, including the new N1p-Sn4p legendary, 18 cards getting buffed, Reckless Experimenter getting tweaked, big improvements to the reconnect feature, being able to access and edit your collection even when offline, new card backs, a new Arena set rotation, matchmaking improvements that will reduce matching the same player or class multiple times in a row, and a whole lot of bug fixes!

While a lot of bugs are being removed, some are also being added, as the Dalaran Heist Chapters 2-5 getting hit with several visual issues with the tracking of which boss a players is on, the crowns for the heroes that have beaten a chapter etc. You can check all of those out in the blue post under the patch notes.

Today’s Hearthstone update adds a new neutral Legendary Minion, card buffs for every class, new Arena sets, and much more! Read on for details about the Rise of the Mech update.

Introducing SN1P-SN4P!

Make the most of the Rise of the Mech event by logging in anytime between June 3 and July 1 and you’ll earn a golden copy of the new neutral Legendary Mech SN1P-SN4P! Crash this clawed clunker into another Mech to build a behemoth of a bot, then do it again!

NEUTRAL__BOT_700_enUS_SN1PSN4P_Gold.png

Missed the event? Normal SN1P-SN4P can still be crafted for the usual cost of 1600 Arcane Dust.

  • Important Note: SN1P-SN4P will be considered part of the The Boomsday Project and will rotate with that set, however SN1P-SN4P will NOT drop from The Boomsday Project card packs. Golden SN1P-SN4P will only be obtainable as part of the Rise of the Mech event, and the normal SN1P-SN4P can only be crafted with Arcane Dust.


Card Changes

The terrible tinkerer Blastmaster Boom has been busy in the lab and has cooked up some buffs to cards from every class! For more details on these changes, including developer insights, check out the Rise of the Mech announcement blog here.

Want to see these updated cards in action? Be sure to tune in to the Mech-vitational event being held June 3-4.

 

Reckless Experimenter:

PZ14WIU1N5821559354141772.pngcardchanges_arrow.png4VXQG5RAMD8G1559354141770.png

We’ve decided to make a change to how Reckless Experimenter functions due to an unwanted interaction with SN1P-SN4P that allows for an early-game infinite damage combo in Priest decks. We’re also aware of some interactions that SN1P-SN4P creates in Wild when played alongside multiple Mechwarpers, and we’ll be keeping a close eye on how that plays out over the next few weeks.

Players will be able to disenchant Reckless Experimenter for its full Arcane Dust value for two weeks.

 

Quality of Life Changes:

Offline Icon

Reconnect Improvements:
  • Players who are disconnected from Hearthstone due to an unstable connection, switching applications, or by locking their mobile devices will no longer be directed back to the login/launch screen when attempting to reconnect.
  • The game will now seamlessly reconnect in the background from any screen, instead of only during gameplay. This includes during deck editing, or while browsing the Collection Manager.
    • Note: We are still improving this feature, and you may encounter some issues with the current version.
  • A new popup has been added to alert players of their offline/reconnect status.
Accessing Hearthstone Offline:
  • Players can now access their collection even when their device has lost connection to the Internet.
    • The following features of the Collection Manager can now be accessed while offline:
      • View owned and unowned cards in the collection
      • Create Decks
      • Edit Decks
      • Delete Decks
      • Rename Decks
      • Set Favorite Heroes
      • Set Favorite Cardbacks
      • Opening a pack that was in the process of being opened
    • Any changes made in the collection manager while offline will be saved on the player's device until the next time they regain network access. Note that some changes may be lost if a player creates multiple decks or edits the same deck simultaneously on multiple devices.

Matchmaking Improvements:

  • We've implemented a new feature to reduce chances of matching against the same player and same class multiple times in a row. Some exceptions may occur when players have few matchmaking options near their rank.
  • Match quality should be improved for players in ranks 25 – 21.

 

Arena Set Rotation

ArenaUpdate_14p4_600x192_EK01.png

Blastmaster Boom needs more test subjects, and what better place to find them than the Arena? Starting with the Rise of the Mech update, the available cards in Arena drafts will be rotating to the following explosively exciting sets:

  • Classic
  • Basic
  • Goblins vs. Gnomes
  • The Grand Tournament
  • One Night in Karazhan
  • The Boomsday Project
  • Rise of Shadows
 
Card Backs

Stolen Thunder – Earned from completing 5 matches during the July 2019 season.

Stolen Thunder
Stolen Thunder - Earned by purchasing the Masters Bundle.
 
Shado-Pan
  • Shado-Pan – Earned from completing 5 matches during the July 2019 season.
  • Stolen Thunder – Earned by purchasing the Masters Bundle.
     

Game Improvements and Bug Fixes

  • Fixed several issues encountered when making changes to windowed mode, fullscreen mode, and when resizing the game.
  • Fixed a visual issue causing Flare to animate twice when drawing a Cast When Drawn card.
  • Fixed an issue causing the animation times for Kalecgos and Rebuke to play at a different speed from other similar effects.
  • The animation for Togwaggle's Scheme shuffling a high number of cards (5+) has been updated to shuffle in batches of 5 cards and at a higher speed.
  • Hadronox's Deathrattle animation no longer appears larger than intended when it triggers an opponent's Duplicate secret.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Kabal Chemist to disconnect your opponent when played.
  • Playing Soularium and Plot Twist quickly together will no longer cause a visual issue.
  • Fixed an issue causing the game to freeze if Voidcaller is drawn at the start of your turn while Fel Lord Betrug and Spiritsinger Umbra are on your side of the board.
  • Triggering a secret that was transformed from Shifting Scroll or Chameleos no longer causes the client to lock up for both players.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause streaming data to stop downloading if the game's language was changed during the download process.
  • Fixed issue where the Collection Manager’s filters would not work for newly created accounts.
  • Fixed an issue where heroes would briefly display the banned banner in the collection manager.
  • Fixed an issue which would occasionally leave the screen blurry after finishing a game under certain circumstances.
  • [Monster Hunt] Fixed an issue where Monster Hunt bosses would sometimes incorrectly be displayed as Gobbles during the upcoming boss fight screen.
  • [Dalaran Heist] Bartender Bob should no longer show an empty speech bubble upon exiting a friendly encounter.
  • [Android] Changed how texture packs on Android devices are handled. This may cause some users to have to redownload these assets.
  • [Mobile] Fixed an issue that could cause players to get duplicate season roll popups when relogging on a mobile device.

Blizzard LogoDalaran Heist Bugs (source)

Hey everyone,

We wanted to make you all aware of an issue being introduced with today’s (6/3) update that will affect chapters 2-5 of The Dalaran Heist. We are actively working on a fix, and hope to have something out later this week to address the following:

  • Players who are in Chapter 2 – 5 of the Dalaran Heist will be shown the Chapter 1 starting boss in the boss card flip screen instead of the actual boss they are facing.
  • Chapter 2 – 5 will show the crowns for heroes that have beaten chapter 1 instead of the actual progress for chapters 2-5.
    ** This is a visual only issue, progress is still being tracked appropriately.
  • The Hero Power and Deck selection checkmarks will show the chapter 1 versions instead of the correct chapter 2 – 5 versions.
    ** Like the crowns, this is a visual issue only.

Thank you for your patience.

I've never seen that card played honestly and I even use Elemental Shaman but that card had no place even there even if wasn't a bad card to have any effect had to be played after the 4th turn otherwise is just a 3/5 no ability... now is a 3/6 so there is a reason to play it since it doesn't die directly to Dyn-o-matic that was the most played card in the meta pratically

      Watch the Masters Tour stop at Las Vegas this weekend and earn free Rise of Shadows and Classic packs via Twitch Drops.
      The tournament will take place between June 14 - 16.
      Here's how Twitch Drops work and what you need to do to earn free packs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What It Is
      If you watch 3 hours of Masters Tour Las Vegas (consecutive or non-consecutive) on any of our official channels during the designated timeframes listed below, you will be granted a Rise of Shadows card pack. Keep watching for a total of 6 hours and you’ll be granted another Rise of Shadows pack! On top of that, 1,500 lucky eligible viewers will be randomly rewarded with Classic card packs every hour.
      These rewards can be earned during the following times:
      June 14: 9am–8pm PT June 15: 9am–8pm PT June 16: 9am–8pm PT Eligible channels:
      PlayHearthstone PlayHearthstoneFR PlayHearthstoneRU HearthstoneZHTW PlayHearthstoneKR PlayHearthstoneJP How it Works
      Before you can receive rewards, you’ll need to link your Twitch.tv and Blizzard Battle.net accounts. Here’s how:
      Log in or create an account on Twitch.tv. Navigate to the Settings menu by clicking your account name in the top-right corner of the home screen. Navigate to the Connections tab of the Settings menu. Find the Battle.net section, then follow the instructions after selecting a region and clicking Connect. When connecting accounts, be sure that you’re currently logged into the Blizzard account on which you’d like to receive your rewards. (source)
      Blizzard has also posted a viewer's guide for the Masters Tour Las Vegas, which you can find here.

      The recently buffed cards are featured in preconstruced decks in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      In "Rise of the Mech" you literally only have to click the Brawl button, since you get a random class with a premade deck. Decks are built around cards buffed in the last balance update.
      Unlike most Brawls, this one seems to be in Standard format.
      As always, you will get a Classic pack as a reward.
    • By Zadina
      The Adventure concludes and there are many rewards to reap for completing it, while you can also unlock Anomaly Mode.
      The Dalaran Heist concludes with its fifth and final chapter. Apart from getting the two remaining Heroes, you can also unlock Anomaly Mode once you are done with all chapters.
       You can purchase this new chapter as part of the $19.99 complete Dalaran Heist bundle. You can also grab The Underbelly, or other individual chapters, for $6.99 or 700 Gold by purchasing them in the in-game shop.
      This final week is special, since there are numerous rewards to get and you can also unlock Anomaly mode.
      Chapter 5 Details

      As if the Dalaran Heist hasn't proven long and repetitive enough, Chapter 5 will last even more. The twist for the Kirin Tor Citadel is that it has four extra bosses, therefore each run will have 12 encounters.
      The Heroes
      The last two remaining Heroes to be added are Warlock and Paladin.
      Tekahn is the Warlock Hero, having the following Hero Powers and starting decks available:

      Hero Powers
      Life Tap (2 mana) – Draw a card and take 2 damage. Pain Split (2 mana) – Take 2 damage. Deal 2 damage. The Pact (2 mana) – Take 2 damage. Summon a 2/2 Imp. Starting Decks
      Sacrificial – Self-damage + Deathrattles Seeker – Card generation Imp-ressive – Demons Karl/George is the Paladin Hero. He seems to be suffering from insomnia! Here are his Hero Powers and starting decks:

      Hero Powers
      Reinforce (2 mana) – Summon a 1/1 Silver Hand Recruit. Backup (2 mana) – Add three 1/1 Silver Hand Recruits to your hand. Boon of Light (2 mana) – Give a friendly minion Divine Shield. Starting Decks
      Old Hero – Divine Shield cards Adventure – Buffs! Holy Flames – Secrets + Dragons. Rewards
      There are many more rewards this time, since these are the final rewards you will get from the Dalaran Heist. By beating five bosses in Chapter 5 you will receive three Rise of Shadows card packs.
      If you've completed all Chapters at least once, you will also get a Golden Classic pack and Golden Zayle, Shadow Cloak (if you didn't prepurchase or haven't crafted him already). We've covered this new Legendary card, which works like Whizbang the Wonderful, in this article.
      Finishing all five chapters on Normal gives you the Prize of Shadows card back.

      Finishing all five chapters on Heroic gives you the Got Away with It! card back.

      Anomaly Mode
      We aren't done, though! After unlocking all five chapters, Anomaly mode becomes available. Anomaly mode adds another random effect that persists through the run to a chapter you've begun.
      There are 18 modifiers and we know 16 of them:
      Modifier Description Arcane All spells cost 2 less Crying All Battlecries Trigger Twice Dragon Soul When a player casts 3 spells in a turn, that player summons a 5/5 dragon Fishy Murlocs occasionally join the battle Glittering Gain a Treasure after playing high-cost cards Growing Minions gain +1/+1 at the end of their owner's turn Gorged Both players start with two extra cards and Mana Crystals Hallucinating Both players start with 10 Hallucinations in their deck Infused Summoning minions will give them Taunt, Divine Shield, Rush, or Windfury at random Nesting When a minion is played, it gains "Battlecry: Summon a 1/1 copy of this minion" Ogreish All minions have a 50% chance to attack the wrong enemy Rattling All Deathrattles trigger twice Reductive At the end of each player's turn, reduce the cost of cards in their hand by 1 Refreshing At the end of each player's turn, the player draw until they have 5 cards in hand. Summons After a spell is cast, summon a minion of the same cost. Wild Magic All spells cast an additional time (Targets chosen randomly) Don't forget to check out our Dalaran Heist guide, which should be properly finished really soon!

      A Q&A took place in the Russian official forums and some interesting tidbits of information were revealed, like Vanish being a candidate for the Hall of Fame.
      u/mawilek has kindly translated and summarised the most important points from this Q&A. In short, Trolden (who is also a Community Manager for Russia) requested some questions from the community and he posted the answers the day before yesterday.
      Here is what you need to know:
      Vanish is a HoF candidate. That's still not final, but they are even thinking to move Vanish to the Hall of Fame before the rotation in April.
      There are no plans to move Toki, Time-Tinker or Whizbang the Wonderful back to standard after rotation. But they will continue experimenting with this kind of things.
      Zayle, Shadow Cloak's decks are to be reviewed only once after rotation and maybe in case of significant nerfs (you can find our extensive article on Zayle here)
      26 epics in RoS was an error. They are planning to continue printing 27 epics per set in future
      Adventures: It takes about 2 weeks to create and balance Heroic mode after Normal mode is ready
      Still no information on future PVE formats, but they have huge plans for those and looking for any kind of feedback for The Dalaran Heist.
      They are probably going to keep the Dalaran Heist monetization model for future single player content. Of course, it will still be available to buy with Gold.
      For those of you who know Russian, you can find the entire Q&A (which probably contains more answers) here.
