We are in the process of deploying Patch 25.0.1, a server-side hotfix patch, with the following game updates and bug fixes:

Pre-Release Weekend Fireside Gatherings are Back On!
We’ve corrected an issue that prevented pre-release weekend Fireside Gatherings from functioning earlier today. Once this patch is deployed to your server, you will be able to create a private Fireside Gathering where you can open your Pre-Purchase March of the Lich King packs and participate in a pre-relea...

The decks awarded to new and returning players have been updated with Patch 25.0! Returning players who have been away for 90 or more days will be eligible for a free deck just for logging in. Returning players will be eligible to claim these returning decks each time they are eligible. New players will be eligible for their free deck after completing the tutorial, the Starter Quest quest chain, graduating from the New Player Ranks (Ranks 40-1), and then returning to the main menu.

Players will get to borrow all these decks for one week following their eligibility, so they can try them all out before making their choice.

It’s possible players may not see their chosen deck in their deck lists if they do not have an open deck slot when they choose their free deck. The cards for the deck (aside from the Core Set cards) will still be added to their Collections. They can clear a deck slot and use the deck codes below to construct the decks. Core Set cards a...

Thanks to those in here spreading the word and apologies to everyone whose plans are getting delayed. Like shared above, this is a known issue that the team is actively working on; they’re trying to get a resolution tonight (Pacific time), but we can’t be sure of that until they confirm the proposed fix works–which probably will be just before the hotfix goes live. The Known Issues post will be updated when the issue is resolved.

Correct, the intended meaning here is that you can’t queue a game with those cards in your deck. If you get them through other means (like Sunwell or Priest/Rogue thief cards), you should be able to play them even if you haven’t unlocked the class yet.

Thanks, the team is aware of this and is exploring update options.

Yeah, when patches ship with known issues it’s from internal testing. The cutoff for patches is a while before they go live, so sometimes bugs are found after the patch is ready to go, or the bug is found earlier but the fix can’t get in in time so they get scheduled to be fixed after launch.

Post

Patch 25.0 is now available on desktop and is coming to mobile devices soon. The patch will includes a new expansion, a new class, a new minion type, dual-type minions and more! We’ll be using this post to track any issues that pop up during the 25.0 patch period.

As a reminder, March of the Lich King and the Death Knight Prologue unlock on December 6. It is not a bug that they are not available on patch day.

The issues we’re tracking this patch include:

  • [Resolved 11/30] The team is aware of reports of Android clients crashing on their second login after installing the new patch. The 11/30 client hotfix should address these issues.

  • On your first login in 25.0, some previously completed achievements will show up and be claimable again. These are the achievements that relate to the golden cards you earned in the last rewards track. You can’t have additional copies of these cards and they can’t be disen...

Hello all,

Some of you might be familiar with HearthstoneAccess, a wonderful third-party accessibility mod that’s been a great way for blind and low vision players to play Hearthstone. We’ve been in constant communication with GuideDev, its developer, and have implemented measures to make development of the mod easier. We’re big fans of their work!

We’ve also been working on improvements to Hearthstone’s native accessibility, with the aim of complementing the functionality that HearthstoneAccess provided. For example, the combination of Hearthstone’s music, sound effects, character dialog, and tavern ambience (the voice murmurs in the background) can conflict with the audibility of screen-reading software trying to convey the state of the game. We know there may be a number of reasons why a player might want to adjust these different channels independently, whether that’s needing to focus on particular noises, finding certain sounds distracting, or simply preferring a ...

Hello all,

Patch 24.6 is now live on desktop and mobile. Follow this post for details on known issues being tracked with this patch.

The issues we’re tracking this patch include:
• [Resolved] The team is aware that some Amazon users are having issues installing and updating to 24.6, this is currently being investigated.
• [Update, 11/2] A hotfix is being deployed to fix the Reaper’s Toll Battlegrounds Strike issue, in addition to adding general server stability. Reaper’s Toll will become available again once this update has deployed to all platforms.
• [Resolved] One Battlegrounds Minion, Faceless Disciple, has been temporarily disabled due to it causing crashes in the 24.6 update.
• The team is aware that the back button from the Shop has a slightly smaller responsive area than intended, and is too close to the products, leading to players sometimes missing the button. This will be resolved in a future patch.
• [Resolved] The Reaper’s Toll Bat...

Hey all,

Thanks for joining us for today’s announcements! We hope you enjoyed the show and the first look at our next expansion, March of the Lich King!

As some of you know, there was an issue with the Twitch Drops that were planned for today’s stream. To make up for that, we’re implementing category-wide Twitch Drops from November 3 at 9am (PT) to November 4 at 6 pm (PT)! Watch for a total of 2 hours to get a free Murder at Castle Nathria Pack; watch for 2 more hours (4 hours total) and you’ll get a free March of the Lich King pack!*

Because these are category-wide Twitch Drops, they can be earned by watching any channel in the Hearthstone category. Just make sure you ...

That’s not a bug. All “card draw” effects (for example “Casts When Drawn” cards or the Warlock weapon) don’t count a card as being “drawn” when it is burned.

Hello all,

Patch 24.4 is now live on desktop and mobile. Follow this post for details on known issues being tracked in this patch.

The issues we’re tracking this patch include:

  • In Battlegrounds, the Theotar’s Parasol Quest Reward has been temporarily disabled, as it was found to cause crashes in specific situations.
  • The Battlegrounds Rewards Track does not open to the latest page to claim rewards. The fix for this issue is coming in the next major patch (24.6).

The following is being posted on behalf of the Mercenaries team:

We know players are eagerly waiting for some way to use their excess coins. We’ve previously shared that we have a two-stage plan for that solution. We are nearly ready for stage one of that plan. In Patch 24.6, we will be introducing a new system that will let you exchange excess coins for a resource you can then trade for Coins for Mercs you haven’t yet Maxed. In stage two of our plan, this system will also tie into challenging end-game content. We’re excited to share more information about each stage of the plan, closer to when it launches.

In the meantime, Patch 24.4 is just around the corner and it includes tons of new Mercs, new Bounties, and more! Check the reveal calendar for upcoming reveals, and we’ll see you in the Fighting Pit.

Super-sleuths tracked down the rumors and put together the clues to discover that there was, in fact, another Battlegrounds Quest Reward option! This last, elusive Quest Reward is called Partner in Crime, and the Reward grants you your Hero’s Golden Buddy when completed.

Unlike all the other Battlegrounds Quest Rewards, Partner in Crime is only offered in very specific circumstances. Specifically, ALL heroes in the lobby must have a valid Buddy option (that means no heroes that came after Buddies left, like Sire Denathrius or Queen Azshara), and also nobody can be playing as Sir Finley or Elise Starseeker.
If your lobby fits these criteria, there is then a 1% chance of the lobby rolling Partner in Crime. If you do, it will be offered to everyone in the lobby.

Congratulations to everyone who helped solve the mystery, and good luck to everyone still searching for their Partner in Crime!
