Anyone attempting to navigate a rocket-propelled capital city full of megalomaniacal super-villains across a continent rife with mountains, monsters, and magic can expect to encounter a few minor hiccups. Crashing the entire floating city into Blackrock Mountain during Ragnaros’ Fire Festival wasn’t planned, but when life hands them lava, the League of E.V.I.L. gets creative.

Move over Ragnaros, it’s time for the… FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L.!

Join the Festivities

The fiery festivities will last a total of three weeks, starting at 10:00 AM PT on July 10 and ending at 9:00 AM PT on July 31. During this time, you’ll be able to participate in the following evil activities:

New Tavern Brawls

Blackrock Crash Week 1: July 10 – 17:

Tavern_Brawl_Rewards.jpg

It’s a party-sized solo adventure! Play as different members of the League of E.V.I.L. and battle against Blackrock bosses to get Dalaran back on track to Uldum. The league is prepared to reward you handsomely for your efforts, of course: you can earn Saviors of Uldum card packs to be opened once our new expansion is live!

Rewards:

  • Earn 1 Saviors of Uldum Card Pack the first time you defeat 4 bosses
  • Beat all 8 bosses to earn the Ragnaros Card Back

All completed runs will be timed with rewards based on how quickly you make it to the top of the mountain. How fast can you best the bosses of Blackrock Mountain?

  • Beat all 8 bosses in under 1 hour to earn a Golden Bronze Herald card
  • Beat all 8 bosses in under 40 minutes to earn a Golden Recurring Villain card

Blackrock Crash Week 2: July 17 - 24:

The Blackrock Crash is still going, but now it’s time to call in the heavy-hitters. This week you’ll fight the Blackrock bosses with a new Arch-Villainous playable Hero!

Rewards:

  • Earn 1 Saviors of Uldum Card Pack the first time you defeat 4 bosses
  • Beat all 8 bosses using Arch-Villain Rafaam to earn a Golden Rafaam’s Scheme card

The Burndown: July 24-31:

A brand-new player vs. player Tavern Brawl where only the best decks remain at the top of the mountain. Queue up to receive a random deck. Then, if you lose, you’ll use the deck that defeated you in your next match. Which decks will survive The Burndown?

Rewards:

Earn 1 Saviors of Uldum card pack the first time you win a match

Community Challenge

For the first two weeks of the Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. the power to reveal upcoming Saviors of Uldum cards is in your capable hands. Work together to progress towards defeating 25 MILLION bosses in the Blackrock Tavern Brawls and unearth new cards along the way.

  • 25%: Card Reveal 1
  • 50%: Card Reveal 2
  • 75%: Card Reveal 3
  • 100%: Legendary Card Reveal

Fireside Gatherings Tavern Brawls

HS_FF_Blog_Rag_Raid_Chalkboard_Art.jpg

Fireside players unite! Team up at a Fireside Gathering near you, play as your favorite member of the League of E.V.I.L., and battle against Ragnaros himself! It’s going to take the entire league to bring Ragnaros from 15,000 health down to zero, so bring your friends!
Every time Ragnaros is defeated at a Fireside Gathering, it’ll count as 500 defeats towards the community challenge!

Find a Fireside Gathering near you by visiting www.firesidegatherings.com

Legendary Quests

HS_FF_Blog_Legendary_Quest_Rewards.jpg

A new Legendary Fire Fest-E.V.I.L. quest* will be unlocked each day for the first 7 days of the event in addition to your normal daily quests. These new quests will reward you with either a card pack from one of the current standard sets, or a hefty sum of Gold!

These quests will only be granted up to the conclusion of the event on July 31.

* Legendary quests will replace an existing normal quest if your quest log is full, so we recommend that you have a spot open when this event goes live.

      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 here and we've updated our decks for Hearthstone's latest expansion.

      Hearthstone Update 16.0 Patch Notes List of Known Issues (Update 16.0) All Descent of Dragons Cards Revealed Blizzard (Source)
      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.

      Blizzard has released a patch for Descent of Dragons that will launch on December 10. It comes with the standard Battlegrounds updates, the Tyrande Priest Hero and Card Back that you can claim in the new in-game shop, the Sylvanas Windrunner Hunter Hero and Card Back that will be available for $9.99, and more.
      Earlier today, we posted all Descent of Dragons cards and we reported about a Battlegrounds MMR change which wasn't supposed to go live. You can find more details about the update in the notes below.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The skies above Dragonblight stir with tension as the League of E.V.I.L. eagerly seeks to resurrect Galakrond, Progenitor of all Dragonkind, and use his great power as a tool of destruction in their sinister plans. To answer the impending threat, the League of Explorers are calling upon powerful allies, the same Dragon Aspects who defeated Galakrond once before. To turn the skies in their favor, both good and E.V.I.L. are unveiling some fresh tactics of their own…
      Read on for the full details of what’s coming to the tavern with the Descent of Dragons expansion, including a major update to Battlegrounds, and how to claim the Tyrande Priest Hero and Card Back for free with the launch of the new in-game shop!
      Descent of Dragons – Launching December 10
      Galakrond

      There are 5 new legendary Galakrond Hero Cards, one for each League of E.V.I.L. Class: Rogue, Warrior, Warlock, Shaman, and Priest. Over the course of a game, Galakrond can be powered up in three stages – each doubling the strength of his Battlecry, with his final form additionally equipping a 5/2 Claw weapon!
      New Keyword: Invoke
      When it comes to maximizing Galakrond’s potential, Invoke is an essential mechanic. Each time you play a card with the Invoke keyword, you will gain a class-specific bonus, wherever Galakrond is. Invoking Galakrond twice will upgrade his base form to “Galakrond, The Apocalypse”. From there, Invoking two more times will earn you his ultimate form, “Galakrond, Azeroth’s End”.
      Sidequests
      While the forces of E.V.I.L. are busy invoking the might of Galakrond, the heroes of good can take on new Sidequests to earn advantages of their own! Unlike the Legendary Quests you would typically build a deck around, Sidequests offer a more lightweight objective with moderate rewards that can fit into varying styles of play. Another key difference from Legendary Quests is that you can put 2 copies of a Sidequest in your deck.
      Legendary Dragons
      The Dragon Aspects are here in a way you’ve never seen before, along with powerful new Proto-Dragons and Togwaggle’s own candle creation, Waxadred! There’s a total of ten new Legendary Dragons joining the fight – one specific to each class, and the neutral Dragonqueen Alexstrasza. Each class-specific dragon will also have a corresponding Dragon Breath – these cards gain significant bonuses while holding a Dragon. So, remember to keep your friends close, but keep your Dragons closer!
      Kronx Dragonhoof
      Kronx Dragonhoof, The Herald of Galakrond, can earn you a sizeable advantage whether you have already become Galakrond, or if he is still in your deck. Use Kronx to pull a fully upgraded Galakrond, or if you’ve already become Galakrond, you’ll be able to choose one of four game-changing Devastations to unleash on the battlefield!
          Login Bonuses:
      Spread your wings and soar into battle as the ultimate dragon! Log into Hearthstone any time within the first 90 days of the launch of Descent of Dragons and receive 3 Descent of Dragons Card Packs, plus 2 copies of Shield of Galakrond to get Invoking straight away. Additionally, when you go to open your packs, you’ll receive all 5 Legendary Galakrond Hero Cards. Now that you’re well equipped for a draconic conquest, embark on a new Legendary Quest Chain to earn gold and even more packs!
      Pre-Purchase:
      Descend in style with these bonuses when you pre-purchase a Descent of Dragons bundle through December 9!
      Standard Bundle: Includes 60 Descent of Dragons Card Packs, the Shattering Card Back, and a random Descent of Dragons Golden Legendary.
      Mega Bundle: Includes 100 Descent of Dragons Card Packs, the new Deathwing Warrior Hero, The Shattering Card Back, and a random Descent of Dragons Golden Legendary.
      PRE-PURCHASE NOW
      Coming Soon – Galakrond’s Awakening:
      The final battle in the Year of the Dragon’s solo adventure story 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.

      Looking for the perfect gift for your favorite Hearthstone pal? Celebrate the season with the new Winter Veil Wonder Bundle, available from December 19 until January 7 for $24.99! Included in this bundle:
      The new Dame Hazelbark Druid Hero and Card Back 30 Card Packs – 6 packs each from Saviors of Uldum, Rise of Shadows, The Witchwood, The Boomsday Project, and Rastakhan’s Rumble
      The Arena draft pool has been updated: Basic Classic Blackrock Mountain The Grand Tournament One Night in Karazhan Knights of the Frozen Throne Rastakhan's Rumble Descent of Dragons Game Improvements and Bug Fixes
      Echo Copies of cards with the Echo keyword can no longer cost less than (1). Full Arcane Dust refunds will be available for the following cards until December 19: SN1P-SN4P (Normal Only) Glinda Crowskin (Normal and Golden) Sound the Bells (Normal and Golden) Dev Comment: This change is targeted at a very popular deck in Wild that utilizes SN1P-SN4P along with the Echo mechanic to generate extremely large minions or near infinite damage. This change should put a stop to that interaction while having very limited impact on the average use case for Echo cards. Glinda, SN1P-SN4P, and Sound the Bells were the three cards that took advantage of generating 0-cost copies through Echo, so we've opted to refund all three of those cards as a result. Zephrys improvements Fixed a bug where minions with both Stealth and Taunt (such as Wardruid Loti) weren’t properly accounted for. Fixed a bug where weapons would sometimes be offered as a removal option against Stealthed minions. Druid Choose One cards now account for having the ‘Choose Both’ effect Fixed a bug where Starfall could be offered as removal against a single minion. Fixed a bug where Earth Shock was incorrectly offered as removal against targets that were reduced to 1 health by Shrink Ray or Equality. Adjusted how Zephrys values enemy Deathrattles. Fixed a bug with lethal calculations including Rush minions not eligible to attack heroes. Fixed several bugs involving certain cards not being offered: King Krush Faceless Manipulator Shadow Madness Doomhammer Battlegrounds Fixed an issue where tripling Replicating Menace could add the incorrect stats to the target Mech when magnetized. Fixed an issue where tripling Replicating Menace did not double its card effects. Fixed an issue where Ice Block could trigger during the Recruit phase. Fixed an issue where players could sometimes not recruit a minion during their first Recruit phase. Fixed an issue where Poisoned Blade would get replaced by Ancient Blades instead of getting +1 Attack. Shirvallah is now discounted by spells that get countered, but will no longer be discounted by spells that are paid for with health. Fixed an issue where minions summoned from Deathrattle effects would sometimes not appear in the correct position. Fixed an issue where taking Fatigue damage would improperly extend the current turn. Shadow Reflections generated by Valeera the Hollow now function properly if discarded and then created by Soulwarden. Fixed an issue where shapeshifted Druid cards had a last known in-hand cost equal to 0, which triggered Darklight Torch when looking at even cost cards. Shapeshifted Druid cards now retain their pre-transformed cost. Buffs made to C'thun while it is still in the deck (and not from Ritual cards) now count towards all "If your C'thun as at least 10 attack..." effects. Fixed an issue with Curator, in the One Night in Karazhan Adventure, where Rush minions would forget to check if the opposing hero had Taunt when looking for valid targets. Fixed an issue where the client was not considering cards that read a value from a variable rather than the card text when determining spell damage. The damage itself was calculated correctly but the visual indication of spell damage was missing.
