Patch 29.2.1 is a server-side hotfix rolling out now with the following game updates and bug fixes.

Weekly Quest Update

The Weekly Quest requirements are now as follows:

  • Use your Hero Power 30 times (instead of 40)
  • Play Battlecry cards 75 times (instead of 100)
  • Play Miniaturize or Mini cards 32 times (instead of 60)
  • Win games in Tavern Brawl, Arena, or Battlegrounds 10 times (instead of 15)
  • Win ranked Hearthstone games 10 times (instead of 15)
  • Damage enemy heroes 400 damage (not changed this patch)
  • Spend 750 mana (not changed this patch)

XP granted by the Weekly Quests is not changing from the new higher amount.

Dev Comment: To get these changes out as fast as we could, we’ve put them into this server-only hotfix. That means there will be some weirdness where the numbers look unchanged in the client, but function as described above (so your ranked wins Quest, for instance, will read 9/15, but get completed after your next win, at 10/15). We are putting together an additional client-side hotfix patch to clean up this issue soon.

See our recent blog post for more on why Weekly Quests were changed with Patch 29.2 and why they’re being adjusted again with this patch.
