Beware of these new bugs in Hearthstone

Patch 17.0 came with a lot of new stuff and significant changes but also brought some undesired issues. And here's the full list of them.
Beware of these new bugs in Hearthstone

If you are a returning or a new player, now is the best time to jump back into Hearthstone. Since the last patch, all new and returning players will get a free deck of choice. But that's only one of the many changes we got with last night's patch, and you can read more about them in our dedicated article.

But, unfortunately, big patches usually come with a bunch of new bugs, and this time is no different. People across Battle.net forums, Reddit, streams and other places have gathered all known bugs and issues since the new patch was launched, and we will present them here to you since we think that all players should be aware of them!

(Shout-out  to Redditor TypicalTypeFTW who collected them!)

Whizbang, the Wonderful: If you play a game with one of his random decks you may still play with cards from the Hall of Fame in a standard format. Only cards added with the 17.0 patch to Hall of Fame, since those were the ones in his decks.

Living Roots: The Grand Tournament Druid card became an epic. It was common previously. People suggest that you do not abuse this since you might be punished for doing that, just wait till they fix it.

Kingsbane: The Kobolds and Catacombs legendary Rogue weapon breaks (Is destroyed) whenever you play it. Some would joke that this is a well-deserved nerf, not a bug.

Demon Hunter Hero Power: Apparently you can get the new Demon Hunter Hero Power from "Sir Finley of the Sands" (Saviours of Uldum Paladin Legendary). We would not consider this to be a bug, more of an early feature.

Freezing Trap: The Hunter Classic Secret makes "Dragonqueen Alextrasza" generated (0) cost dragons cost 0 instead of 2 when triggered. They should cost their original cost + (2)


Rogue Cards: Rogue thief spells and thief minions do not work - they don't give cards from another class.

The Darkness: The Neutral Kobolds and Catacombs legendary minion is now called "Darkness Awaits", it is a 0 mana 0/0

Arena Rewards: Apparently you can get the new basic priest cards from Arema rewards which these basic priest cards should be completely free for everyone.

Invoke Cards are being Generated: The new Epic Priest card is generating an Invoke card (Fate Weaver) which it's not supposed to do since the DoD invoke mechanics patch. Not only on the priest class but also in other card generators you may get cards with the invoke mechanics.


The new free decks: New and returning players are confirming that they didn't receive any of the supposed free decks. Blizzard said they were going to receive them starting from yesterday, March 26. (Blizzard is working to solve this problem)

The New Demon Hunter Initiate Cards: Some people are reporting that they have access to the Initiate Cards from Demon Hunter if they got the second wing of Galakronds Awakening Solo Content.

Hearthstone Daily Quests: Apparently, if you reroll a quest, you may get one saying for you to play 3 games with Demon Hunter and other 2 classes. This means you can only complete the quest with only 2 heroes.

Practice Mode: You are able to play against Demon Hunter in AI mode.

Rank: Some people can't see their rank when they go to Play mode.

Practice Mode: Playing Curious Glimmerroot against Demon Hunter in Practice Mode makes the game crash.

Deck codes: Deck codes are making completely different decks. And some of them aren't even making decks.


These are all currently known bugs.  Did some new bug happen to you since yesterday's patch? Maybe one that isn't listed here? Tell us in the comments!
