27.2.3 Patch Notes

Patch 27.2.3 is a server-side hotfix patch launching today with the following game updates and bug fixes:

Battlegrounds Updates

Anomaly Adjustments:

  • Anti-Gravity Stadium has been returned to the Anomaly pool
  • Might of Khaz’goroth and Fortitude of Khaz’goroth now have lower appearance rates

Several heroes are now banned when certain anomalies are active:

  • Little League: Dinotamer Brann and Thorim, Stormlord (corrected)
  • Money Match: Infinite Toki; E.T.C., Band Manager; and Professor Putricide
  • Packed Stands: Millhouse Manastorm
  • The Golden Arena: E.T.C., Band Manager and Shudderwock
  • Several low-performing heroes have been removed from various Anomalies

Bug Fixes

  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Sword Eater was playable in Twist, even though it is not in one of the legal expansions for this season.
  • [Hearthstone] The mana cost of Escaped Tentacle (summoned by Loken, Jailer of Yogg-Saron) is now based on Escaped Tentacle’s stats, instead of the mana cost of the card Discovered.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Chamber of Viscidus could not be activated without cards in hand to discard (and behaved oddly when tried).
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Faithful Companions couldn’t be played if only its Manathirst was active (if you have a Beast in your hand, but not in your deck).
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Al’Akir, the Winds of Time could draw non-minion cards.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where a copy of V-07-TR-0N created by Ini Stormcoil is unable to attack after using all its Abilities.
  • [Hearthstone] Partially resolved a bug where Soot Spewer and Spawn of Shadows did not have the stats of their original versions updated to match their Caverns of Time versions (both cards got +1 Health with Caverns). The other part of the resolution was in our most recent Client Patch. Both portions are needed to fully resolve the issue. See the 27.2 Known Issues post for more details.
  • [Battlegrounds] Fixed a bug where some players would instantly concede at the start of Anomalies where all players are the same hero.
  • [Battlegrounds] Fixed a bug where Witchwing Nestmatron could give Tier 1 and Tier 2 minions while the Big League Anomaly is active.
  • [Battlegrounds] Fixed a bug where Prudence of Amitus and Transient Treasures were not appearing in high-level lobbies.
  • Added 9/7: [Battlegrounds] Fixed a bug where Obsidian Ravager wouldn’t lose Stealth if it didn’t complete its attack.
  • [Duels] The Grand Tournament and Mean Streets of Gadgetzan have been added to Discover pools and random generation effects. They will be added to initial deckbuilding in a future update.
  • [Collection] Fixed a bug where the Warrior Twist Battle-Ready Deck included the legacy copy of Acolyte of Pain (which is banned in some cases to avoid another issue). Players who already purchased the deck before this update can play it by swapping out the banned version of Acolyte of Pain with the free Core Set version, which is not banned.

Hi, since i downloaded and installed this update, i can’t access Hearthstone anymore?
What can i do to play HS again?


There’s a bug where you can’t use caverns of time cards in duels if you didn’t open them through caverns of time packs.

  • Get a Collection Error crafting golden Demon Hunter Initiate Set cards (e.g. Mana Burn and Consume Magic) even though I have plenty dust and have unlocked the non-goldens. See video: https://imgur.com/a/6vUAnUL
  • A remaining Collection Manager bug for Caverns of Time cards is that searching for “Extra” does not work if you have more than the maximum number of playable copies across sets. For example, if you have 2 Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Jade Spirits and 1 Caverns of Time Jade Spirit, Jade Spirit does not show up if you search for “Extra”. This makes it a huge amount of manual work to even figure out which cards are duplicates if you want to dust Caverns cards that are duplicates of cards you already own in the original sets.

Don’t forget about Renounce Darkness offering DK in twist bug!


Hi, I once couldn’t open hearthstone on PC because the game won’t update. I tried reinstalling hearthstone a few times but it still downloads the old version. I found out that you need to reinstall battle.net to fix this. Maybe that would help

Can’t be, the pinned patch STILL says we’re in 27.2.1

I noticed that the Golden Acolyte of Pain cards I got from Caverns of Time packs do not show up in my wild collection UNLESS I search for ‘Caverns’ in the search bar. Then I can see the gold versions. Otherwise I can only see the core/legacy non-gold versions, even if I search for ‘Acolyte’

Hope this helps.

when are the issues with caverns of time packs going to be resolved and why were they not included in this patch? i’m not going to be spending anything on these packs until all the b.s. around separate card pools is fixed, and all of the free packs are going to sit in waiting until that time as well … i’m not interested in twist only cards … classic was enough of a debacle of trying to have separate “duplicate” cards … if you own a copy of a card, it ought to exist in each card pool whether or not you specifically opened it in that pool (and whether or not separate pools need to exist programmatically) … period … tell me when this is going to be fixed please, or do i need to make this post in “bug reports”?


Don’t get confused , server-side patchs take place only on blizzard servers , they post the version just to show something changed, there is nothing to update , the client can stay back and show a previous version and i think ( in my case ) current version is 27.2.2
