Goblins vs Gnomes Patch Changes

A Hearthstone patch has appeared on the download servers, and it contains Goblins.. and Gnomes!

Animated Golden Cards

Our HearthPwn developer masterminds have generated some incredibly awesome golden cards for you to enjoy. See below for a glimpse of what Goblins vs Gnomes has to offer in its collection of golden cards, and be sure to head on over to our database to view all the golden cards! Remember to mouseover the golden cards on our database listing to see them animate!

We recommend using Google Chrome to see the cards in their highest quality (webm). Other browsers see gifs.




Goblins vs Gnomes Launch Event

We have datamined information about a Goblins vs Gnomes launch event. Logging into the game during the launch event will give you a free arena run and three free Goblins vs Gnomes card packs. We don't know how long the launch event will last, but if it's anything like Naxxramas, it should last a couple of months. Blizzard has not yet released a statement on the GvG Launch Event.

Quest changes which reference the launch event can be seen below, alongside the other quest changes (Woo Android!).

Battle.net Launcher - New Hearthstone Background

A Goblins vs Gnomes background was added to the BNet client earlier today. It should go live once the expansion launches on December 8th.
