Patch notes[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

  • Improved friends list sorting based on player status.
  • Breaking News will now properly be shown when Hearthstone is undergoing maintenance.
  • Reconnect functionality has been enabled for Practice mode.
  • Games in Friendly Play now have a turn timer.
  • [iPad] Deck Rename and Deck Delete is now easier to find.

Card changes[edit | edit source]

  •  Unleash the Hounds (Hunter) now costs 3 (up from 2).
    • After much consideration, we have decided to increase the mana cost of Unleash the Hounds to 3. Unleash the Hounds has been dominating all levels of play for quite some time. This change should make the card more fun to play against while still allowing for some big plays when combined with other hunter cards.
