A hotfix for this patch, 27.0.1, was releaed on July 28, 2023. A second hotfix, 27.0.2, was released on August 4, 2023.

Patch Notes[edit | edit source]

Patch 27.0, launching tomorrow, prepares the way for TITANS to come to Hearthstone on August 1! The patch also includes updates to Battlegrounds, Duels, Arena, and more.

TITANS Are Making Their Way to Hearthstone![edit | edit source]

Hearthstone's next expansion, TITANS, is awakening in Hearthstone on August 1. The new 145-card expansion includes the new Titan and Forge keywords, Legendary Keepers, the returning Magnetic keyword, and more! See all the new cards in the official Card Library today. This is your last chance to get your Pre-Purchase bundle, only available until the expansion goes live next week!

With the launch of TITANS comes a new Rewards Track, with out-of-this-world cosmetics, XP boosts, cards, card packs, and a huge infusion of Gold! Check out our Rewards Track Refresh blog for details.

In-Game Event: Ulduar Grand Championship[edit | edit source]

Starting on August 3, vie for the favor of the Titans in a special in-game event, celebrating the launch of TITANS! From August 3 to August 22, complete Event Quests to earn Event XP on the special event rewards track. Complete the rewards track to earn 6 total packs (2 Standard Packs, 1 Golden Standard Pack, 1 Festival of Legends Pack, and 2 TITANS Packs) and a Death Knight Hero Skin!

New to Core: Paladin Auras[edit | edit source]

As part of our continued efforts to be more flexible with the Core Set throughout the year, two new cards are being added to Paladin's Core Set with Patch 27.0.

The Auras have an effect that lasts for a few turns after you play the card. These two cards will be automatically added to the free Core Set with Patch 27.0. There is also one more Aura card in the TITANS set that can be obtained through all normal means once the expansion is live. We plan to continue exploring this design space for Paladin in future expansions as well.

Battlegrounds Updates[edit | edit source]

New Quest Rewards[edit | edit source]
  •  Turbulent Tombs: Add [a specified “Deathrattle” minion] to your hand. Your Deathrattles trigger an extra time.
  •  Gilnean War Horn: Add [a specified “Battlecry” minion] to your hand. Your Battlecries trigger an extra time.
Quest Reward Updates[edit | edit source]
Hero Armor Updates[edit | edit source]

The following heroes now have less Armor:

  •  Cariel Roame now has 6 Armor
  •  Chenvaala now has 15 Armor at higher ratings, still has 12 Armor at lower ratings

The following heroes now have more Armor:

Minion Update[edit | edit source]

 Bristleback Knight

  • Old (regular): Windfury, Divine Shield. Frenzy: Gain Divine Shield.
  • New (regular): Windfury. Divine Shield. The first time this survives damage, gain Divine Shield.
  • New (golden): Windfury. Divine Shield. The first two times this survives damage, gain Divine Shield.
  • Dev Comment: This is a word change update for clarity, since this was the only card in Battlegrounds using the Frenzy keyword. There is no functional change to the normal version, but the Golden version is now stronger.
Wording Updates[edit | edit source]

Text-only updates have been made in several instances across Battlegrounds for consistency and better templating: “Tavern Tier” has been shortened to “Tier”; “Bob's Tavern” has been changed to “the Tavern”; “add to your hand” has been shortened to “get”; and “minion type” has been shortened to “type” when “minion” has already been previously mentioned in the text. None of these changes are gameplay-impacting changes.

Duels Updates[edit | edit source]

Season Update[edit | edit source]

On July 25, the current Duels season will end, ratings will be reset, and current runs will be concluded. At that time, Ashes of Outland will be added to deckbuilding and card pool offerings. TITANS will also become available for all card pools at that time, but will not be available for initial deckbuilding until the launch of the expansion on August 1.

Hero Pool Update[edit | edit source]

Diablo is no longer in the eligible hero pool.

Card Pool Update[edit | edit source]

Enter the Arena to play the new TITANS cards before the expansion launches!

Twist Beta Ending Soon[edit | edit source]

The current Twist Beta is coming to an end at the end of this season, at the end of the day on July 31. After the Beta ends, Twist will be temporarily unavailable while we prepare for the formal launch. Thank you all for trying out this new Mode and giving your feedback!

Twist is scheduled to formally launch on September 1, with a new format and a fun surprise. Stay tuned for more details closer to launch.
