We've got a round of important blue posts to highlight today which include a few server-side hotfixes that fix some frustrating bugs and a special note on achievement fixes incoming. Here is a recap of the important bits, read on for the full blue posts.

  • Maestra of the Masquerade should now always disguise your hero.
  • Fixed an interaction that allowed you to skip enemy turns by using Shadowcrafter Scabbs with Coldarra Drake.
  • Fixed an exploit to cheat in Mercenaries PVP.
  • Uncraftable golden cards can no longer be obtained from random drops.
  • Alterac Valley Achievement issues should be resolved in Patch 22.2, the next major patch.

January 7 Hearthstone Hotfixes

We are currently in the process of rolling out a server-side hotfix to all regions that includes the following:

  • Fixes a bug that caused Maestra to not turn into another class if you did not have a favorited hero skin for that class (resulting in the Rogue being disguised as… a Rogue).
  • Fixes timings so that a Shadowcrafter Scabbs that gets a Coldarra Drake can no longer skip the enemy turn by repeatedly using their hero power.
  • Closes an exploit that players with hacked accounts were using to cheat in Mercenaries PvP.
  • Fixes a bug that allowed players to get uncraftable golden cards from various random drops. Compensation for players who received these unintended uncraftable cards will be provided at a later time.

Separately, we recently provided compensation for: players who purchased a Valeera Mercenaries bundle that was temporarily mistranslated in Russian and Chinese languages; and a small number of players who received Vanessa VanCleef Portraits through “random” products, instead of the rewards track as intended.

We will update this post when we have more information.

Achievement Bug Fixes Blue Post

Quote From Celestalon

Any word on when the bugged achievements will be fixed, and whether or not any of the requirements will be lowered? I'd really like to start working on some of these.

Patch 22.2, which is the next major patch.
