After a short delay, Patch 28.2 is now live on all devices. Come celebrate Battlegrounds Season 6 in the Spellslinger’s Saloon, a new Shop layout, and more!

The following are some of the known issues we’re tracking this patch:

  • [Shop] Some players are reporting that they see a notification in the shop that they can’t dismiss if they already purchased all products from that section.
  • [Resolved] [Hearthstone] Some players are reporting that Greedy Partner did not work for them if they Shadowstepped and replayed it. Update 2: This issue applies to all the “Partner” cards. We’ve released a small server patch that included a bug fix for Greedy Partner. The other Partners are to be fixed in another patch, coming soon.
  • [Progression] Players who were in a match when the “Wanted, Dead or Alive!” event ended may be missing the Journal icon in the main hub. A client restart after the end of the event should resolve this issue.
  • [Resolved] [Progression] Some players are reporting odd timing for achievement/quest progression.
  • [Resolved] [Progression] Players who were in Apprentice Ranks prior to Patch 28.2, placed into the new Apprentice Track with 28.2, and completed the new Apprentice Track are reporting that, when they return to the normal Rewards Track, it appears that their progress was only partially saved. Update: Players have been restored to their proper spot on the Rewards Track.
  • [Resolved] [Battlegrounds] Togwaggle’s hero power can’t be used on a Tavern that is full of only spells.
  • [Added 12/6] [Shop] Some players are reporting that they are unable to access the shop on their first time opening the client after downloading the patch. The issue seems to be with data still downloading from the patch in the background, and the issue seems to be resolved by just restarting the client once the download is complete.
  • [Partially Resolved] [Progression] The team is investigating reports of players having issues if they complete the Apprentice Track without completing the Tavern Guide.
  • [Added 12/13] [Hearthstone] Spurfang fails to summon a minion when it gets to over 10.
  • [Added 12/19] [Battlegrounds] Bazaar Dealer will have the wrong health when Golden in patch 28.2.3. This will be corrected in an upcoming patch.
  • [Resolved] Barrel of Sludges are still dealing 3 damage when exploding (destroy/discard). The team is working on a quick update to correct this.
  • [Resolved] [Battlegrounds] Imprisoner was updated to a 3/2 in patch 28.2.3.
  • [Added 12/20] [Hearthstone] School Teacher’s Nagalings are struggling to learn Misfire (it has no effect when played). The team is hiring special tutors.

Hero Pool and Minion Pool changes

  • [Resolved] [Battlegrounds] We’re temporarily removing Ambassador Faelin from the hero pool while we investigate a bug where Strike Gold would cause Faelin’s Gold to lock up. Strike Gold? More like Stuck Gold.
  • [Resolved] [Battlegrounds] We’re temporarily removing Cariel Roame from the hero pool while we investigate a bug with hero power upgrades.
  • [Resolved] [Battlegrounds] We’re temporarily removing Titus’s Tribute and Upper Hand from the Tavern Spell pool while we investigate bugs causing crashes.
  • [Resolved] [Battlegrounds] We’re temporarily removing Tae’thalan Bloodwatcher from the Hero Pool due to power level concerns. It will be returned once it has been re-balanced in an upcoming patch.
  • [Added 12/19] [Battlegrounds] Staff of Enrichment is giving the wrong buff and will be temporarily removed from the Tavern Spell pool until it is fixed.
  • [Added 12/19] [Battlegrounds] Paint Smudger is being temporarily removed from the minion pool due to a bug with its effect.
  • [Added 12/20] [Battlegrounds] We’ve temporarily removed Infinite Toki, Queen Azshara, and Aranna Starseeker from the hero pool due to a bugged interaction.
