Just got an antivirus alert ( from bitdefender) about file C:\Program Files (x86)\Hearthstone\Hearthstone_Data\Plugins\x86\audioplugin_fluxer.dll being infected by Gen:Trojan.Heur.GZ.Hu4@be@BjFm … Doing a quick search there is some history about that file before and false-positive alerts… Is it possible that this could be the case here as well or should i be worried?

if a death knight equips quartzite crusher at any point in the game all of their weapons afterwards will also freeze


I still have the red exclamation mark on my Battlegrounds collection.

It shows that I have a new Board skin but if I click through my collection there is no new skin and the “red 1” remains.

I have this issue for many months now.

I had same issue occur as Amaxagon with Might of Menethil weapon

Yep, I’m noticing something similar.

Anybody else encountering this bug, that I have been seeing since todays patch? When playing Battlegrounds (solo) in the later turns (about turn 8 or 9 and going forward) If you play anything when the rope is burning your turn just ends? Happened to me first 4 games in a row.


I have the Lazul Priest skin, but I don’t have the Lazul card back. (previously, only the skin was sold in the store). It’s currently on sale in the store and I can’t purchase the card back.

Hello and hope you are well. There’s an issue related to the “Blizzard 2014” Card back. I’ve successfully redeemed the code and received in game goods for all other Blizzard games except for HS. All other Blizzcon tickets worked as intended.

Thanks to everyone reporting the Death Knight weapon freezing thing. The team’s looking into it.


I got the same, but it was the first 1-mana-weapon the DK played that frooze me

You guys just REFUSE to fix Halveria’s hero power animation. Seriously I don’t understand how it can’t be fixed right away like you guys did with Reska’s. I’m just asking for that to be fixed, please.


DK discovered the 1-mana weapon, played only that, was freezing me with every swing, couldn’t heal and lost.

There is a weird interaction between Felstring Harp and Deathbringer Saurfang when he costs Health. Instead of healing for 2 I take five damage

That’s not a bug: paying health isn’t taking damage.


PLEASE fix Halveria, Rastakhan and Maiev’s hero power animation. I PAID for this skin. Are you ignoring this bug even though you know it?



My shop was closed and i was unable to log into battlenet however i got and then tried to log out to fix shop and now i cant get back in.

Could not log into battlenet with this code BLZBNTBNA00000A8D

The visual bug in the collection menu is still not fixed.

If I click on the tab which contains the coins and then start browsing the cards of the classes then there is a brown bar beneath the first card. It is the bar which is used to indicate the favorite on the coin and card back page but that bar is shown on the card pages.

It looks like this:


It appears that the bar below the favorited coins is shown on the other pages because if several coins are selected as favorites then the amount of bars also rises on the other pages:
