Saviors of Uldum: Blizzard Community Q&A - Mobile Hotfix & More!

 

 

  

 

Hearthstone devs responded to a number of questions...

Q: How will Electra Stormsurge work with the Hero Power from completing the Corrupt the Waters quest?

A: The reward works the same way as Brann Bronzebeard or Murmuring Elemental, so there is no change to the mechanic. Battlecries will still only happen twice.
Q: Can we have 2 active Quests at the same time?

A: No, only one Quest can be active at any time. The second one cannot be played until you finish the first one.

Q: Will both Quests appear in the mulligan?

A: Yes.

Q: Does Questing Explorer work with the original Un'goro Quests as well?

A: Yes.

Q: Do Reborn cards count twice, when it comes to resurrection mechanics, etc? Once for the original card (with Reborn keyword still active) and once for the reborned card (with 1 health remaining)?

A: Yes. Deathrattles would trigger twice as there are two copies in the pool of dead minions. Note that if resurrected, the 1-Health version will come back with full life and Reborn keyword - the two copies are functionally identical. Works basically like the paladin secret (Redemption).

Q: Does Reborn set the minion’s life to 1 Health or deal damage until it has 1 Health remaining?
Q: How does it track if Reborn has triggered?
Q: If I copy a Reborned minion, do I get a Reborn keyword back on the copied minion? 
Q: What happens if I Silence a Reborn minion with 1 Health?

A: The minion returns with 1 Health remaining, but it can still be healed to its normal maximum Health.
A: You can tell that Reborn has been triggered via the visual effect on it (similar to how you can tell that a minion's Divine Shield has been used up).
A: If a minion started with Divine Shield, then that Divine Shield got used up, copying it wouldn't give the Divine Shield back. Same with Reborn.
A: Silence does remove the Reborn state (again, same as Divine Shield).

Q: Sir Finley Mrrgglton is shown riding his loyal steed. What is the name of this magnificent beetle?

A: Jeweled Scarab is the type of mount he´s riding, what do you think he should name this one?

Q: Ossirian Tear's text states: “Your Choose One effects have both effects combined.” But how does that effect Wardruid Loti?

A: We often go with text that is easy to process on your first read and this is a good example of that. We talked about writing "all effects combined" to make it more clear in the case of one legendary at the cost of being less clear in every other case and decided not to do that. (Editor - by that answer we can deduce that all 5 effects will be combined at the same time.)
Q: Sir Finley Mrrgglton is a Mage?

A:  Reno's class is based around what amazing loot he has most recently found. That means for this expansion he is a mage because of his gun of magic wands. Sir Finley Mrrgglton is a paladin btw.

Q: Will the Saviors of Uldum characters have the same stats as they did in League of Explorers?

A: Matching stats like that is a nice to have so that people see the link. It is one of those design things that feels good. However those numbers are really good for balancing cards and determining what else you can combo them with. There are a ton of factors that go into deciding the numbers on a card. The aesthetic of matching numbers vs balance vs tempo vs combo potential.

Blizzard responds and issues hot fix for Patch 14.6 issues on mobile devices...

Quote from Chris Sierra

Well Met Friends,

With the recent 14.6 update, we identified some pesky bugs that needed squashing. We are currently rolling out a fix that will resolve the following issues:

  • Fixed an issue where hitting the home button while in a match on a mobile device would not bring you back to your match.
  • Fixed the “Global Asset Cellular Download” pop-up from showing.

As for the login issues on Mobile, we are still investigating this. There is a workaround that should work for you in the meantime: uninstall and re-install the app. This should let you patch up properly and not get stuck at the Tavern doors. Sincere apologies for the miscommunication on my previous post!

It’s now live on Google Play and should be rolling out on iOS soon.

Please let us know how the experience is on this new patch! We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for any other issues that could crop up.

Have a great week!

Cheers,
Chris_Attalus
