Patch is a Hearthstone patch released November 5, 2018. A small patch adding the Rastakhan's Rumble preorder.

Patch notes[edit | edit source]

In this update we're preparing the Tavern for the arrival of that monarch of the melee, King Rastakhan, and his riotous rabble of rowdy retainers in Rastakhan's Rumble! We've also got gifts for our friends, new Classic cards, download improvements, bug fixes, and more!

Read on for details!

This update is currently live for PC and Mac, and will become available on mobile in the coming hours.

Pre-Purchase Rastakhan's Rumble![edit | edit source]

  • Pre-purchase one or both bundles and make sure your team is ready to throw down when Rastakhan’s Rumble releases starting December 4!

Rastakhan's Rumble![edit | edit source]

  • King Rastakhan won't just be hosting the Rumble, he'll be brawling with the best of them! When you pre-purchase this bundle, you'll get 50 Rastakhan's Rumble card packs, the Ready to Rumble card back, AND the new Shaman Hero:  King Rastakhan!

The Challenger’s Bundle[edit | edit source]

  • For more budget-minded brawlers, this bundle offers 17 Rastakhan's Rumble card packs and the Ready to Rumble card back.

100 Million Players[edit | edit source]

  • There are more guests in the Tavern than ever before, but there’s always room for more!
  • Join us by logging into Hearthstone from November 7 – November 11, play with friends, and be gifted with tokens of our appreciation!
  • Get SIX The Boomsday Project card packs just for logging in.
  • Celebrate the Players Quests. Everyone who logs in will receive a quest to play against a friend in any mode for 100 gold. This quest is repeatable up to five times for a total of 500 gold!
  • Unlike Challenge a Friend, only players with this quest in their log will receive the gold, so make sure you log in and get the quest!

New Classic Cards[edit | edit source]

The following cards can now be crafted or opened in Classic card packs:

Card backs[edit | edit source]

  • Added the following card backs:

    • The Third War – Acquired from the Warcraft III: Reforged promotion.

Download Improvements[edit | edit source]

  • We've continued making improvements to the mobile Hearthstone app.
  • The option to download via cellular data is no longer saved between sessions. You’ll be prompted to provide permission when new data needs to be downloaded.
  • To improve performance, downloads are now paused while in a match.
  • Phones now use lighter weight card art to reduce app size.

Gameplay Improvements & Bug Fixes[edit | edit source]

  •  Small-Time Buccaneer now correctly gains +2 Attack if its stats were swapped by  Void Ripper.
  • Deathrattles on replaced weapons now trigger at the same time as minions in play are destroyed, so  Powermace will no longer "save" minions destroyed by  Blood Razor's Battlecry.

  • Reduced the delay on reactivating  Deathstalker Rexxar's Build-a-Beast when  Coldarra Drake or  Garrison Commander are in play.

  • Fixed an issue with the in-game Shop scaling on high resolution monitors.
  • Fixed various visual issues with Deck Recipes, the Friend List, and New Player Ranks.
