Bug Fixes and Game Improvements

  • [Hearthstone] Going Down Swinging will no longer attack in a random order.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Start of Game Effects and certain Anomalies did not work together.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a visual bug where the yellow glow on Finale cards did not activate properly if the cards changed costs.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where some Finale effects did not activate if the Finale card had its cost changed.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Judge Unworthy could destroy a minion that was already damaged but then given Divine Shield, instead of setting the minion’s Health to 1 and removing the Divine Shield.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Disciple of Eonar and Cenarion Hold’s effects wouldn’t be spent if the Choose One played was a transforming minion.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Ruins of Korune (generated by Runi, Time Explorer) could make a card cost 0 if it’s drawn with an invalid card (like if it’s your last card and you draw it with a fatigue card). In those situations, it will now keep its original cost.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where The Nighthold (generated by Runi, Time Explorer) could try to cast Secrets that were already active.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Temple of Earth (generated by Runi, Time Explorer) granted an aura that would apply through stat-setting cards (like Equality).
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Spirit Claws and Cogmaster’s Wrench did not update their stats while in play.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Pebbly Page’s Overload protection effect would not trigger if no Overload card was drawn.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Toki, Time-Tinker could give you old versions of cards that have since been updated.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a visual bug where Street Trickster was missing the Spell Damage indicator.
  • [Hearthstone] Fixed a bug where Anomalies did not trigger in matches against Blizzard bots.
  • [Twist] Fixed a bug where you could Renounce Darkness and turn into an illegal class (Demon Hunter or Death Knight), resulting in you also renouncing all your class cards.
  • [Twist] Fixed a bug where Sir Finley Mrrgglton was too good of an explorer and was able to Discover illegal Hero Powers (Demon Hunter and Death Knight).
  • [Battlegrounds] Fixed a bug causing longer turns in Quilboar games.
  • [Battlegrounds] “Essence of Zerus” has been removed from the Quest Pool.

Still waiting for Halveria’s hero power animation to be fixed from the Festival pass. It’s been broken for months now.

You forgot the balance notes.


Balance your game instead of making useless patches, bunch of suckers.


Whoever wrote this line needs better recognition for going above and beyond in their job.


im pretty sure fixing bugs isnt useless

Can you also fix Magatha in standard? Some spells she gives to your opponent break the game when they play them and sometimes when you restart it doesn’t even reconnect. I’m talking specifically about giving zombeees or titanforged traps in hunter.

Hooray for fixing the anomalies ie getting rid of it :slight_smile:

I know it must be near the bottom of the priority list, so I appreciate seeing the fix for Renounce Darkness. Second game was a fun time with Shaman summon 4 Murlocs + Bloodlust + Windfury :slight_smile:

how about you fix the damn lag and crashes in battlegrounds??? so sick and tired of being a top player, winning my lobbies and then boom, crash and come back to a 7th and 8th place. it’s ridiculous. we don’t need anomaly and minion updates, we need the crashes to stop.

currently both Symphony of Sins and Runi, Time Explorer lack entrance music (unless Runi’s “play music” is just meant to be that one sound effect. I figured a part of a song was meant to play as ell)

Are there any bugfixes for people unable to login to battlenet this jut happed today im so sad :confused: i cant play at all

Game made for fat whales.

Its a fun idea that only lasts a week, chill out

Its a fine patch, also these are important for getting the game to work as intended, just give the HS dev team a break, Im sure they’re doing what they can with what they’ve been given from the higher ups

“discovers a card from THE PAST.”

So…now it discovers cards from THE PRESENT. Better update the card’s text then, or delete it altogether since you made it useless.

Literally anyone can be a dev, programmer, etc at actiblizz. Make sure to apply, even if you have no coding experience. You literally couldn’t be worse than the current team.

Read the patch notes, it lasts until next expac.

But at least they pinned the right patch notes…for once!

Fix your server blizzard specifically on PHILIPPINES we having a problem since this patch release we can’t queue/stuck on queue.
