Patch 17.2 - New Heroes & Card for Battlegrounds, Deck Rearranging Feature
Blizzard has just released patch 17.2 for computer users to download, Android and IOS will follow later.
Some not so important things haven't been covered by Blizzard in their patch post yesterday, so here they are:
- Nemsy Necrofizzle is now available for free in the in-game shop between May 12 – 19, she's a Warlock's alternative Hero skin.
- New June 2020 Card Back has been added - Mystic Forest.
Here you can see all the details provided by Blizzard yesterday:
Quote from Blizzard
The 17.2 patch includes three new Heroes and a new minion for Battlegrounds. We’ve also added the ability to rearrange your decks, a new visual aid for end of Season rewards, and more!
As a note, we’ve restructured assets in 17.2 so the data download for this patch will be similar to a fresh install. Pardon our dust!
- Dire Wolf Alpha has been removed from the minion pool.
- [Tier 1, Beast] 3 Attack, 1 Health.
After you play a minion with Deathrattle, gain +1/+1.
Players with Battlegrounds perks will have immediate access to playtest these three new heroes before they are fully unlocked on May 26.
- Evolving Electricity [Passive]: After you upgrade Bob’s Tavern, replace his minions with ones of a higher Tier.
- Imprison [Cost 1]: Make a minion in Bob’s Tavern Dormant. After 2 turns, get it with +1/+1.
- Verdant Spheres [Passive]: Every third minion you buy gains +2/+2.
You can now reorder your deck lists! While viewing your deck list in the Collection Manager, press and hold a deck button to enter “rearranging” mode. Once you’re in rearranging mode, just click and drag on your decks to order them! Deck rearranging will not work until all nine starting heroes (excluding Demon Hunter) are unlocked.
Zephrys the Great Improvements
- Fixed a bug where Zephrys the Great would miss lethal when there was an enemy Taunt minion with Lifesteal that you could attack into.
- Fixed a bug where Zephrys the Great would prefer not to transform/Silence certain high-stat Deathrattle minions (such as Waxadred).
- Fixed a bug where Zephrys the Great could miss lethal using Unleash the Hounds.
- Fixed a bug where Zephrys the Great would not offer Silence options for minions with the “Can’t Attack Heroes” effect.
- Zephrys the Great is now slightly less likely to offer single-target removal for next turn.
- Zephrys the Great will no longer offer Natalie Seline for next turn.
- Zephrys the Great may now offer Polymorph instead of Hex in a few cases where it would be better for your opponent to have a 1/1 than a 0/1 with Taunt.
- Swipe will now fill the AoE category (instead of single target damage) if Zephrys the Great expects it to be used against the enemy hero.
- Improved how Zephrys the Great evaluates enemy minions that have low base stats for their cost, but are buffed.
Game Improvements and Bug Fixes
- End of Season rewards.
- Your total rewards accumulated within the current Ranked season are now highlighted in green inside your Rewards Chest, which can be found at the top of the Quest Log.
- Collection Manager filter panel (mobile).
- The filter panel will now remain open after using Search.
- The filter panel will now hide once cards are dragged to a deck and will reappear after they’ve been added.
- The filter panel will no longer be dismissed until the “Done” button has been pressed.
- Card text for Teron Gorefiend has been updated to be more technically accurate: “Destroy all other friendly minions. Deathrattle: Resummon them with +1/+1.”
They’d better not give Sylvanas away or I want my 10 bucks back. Yeah, yeah... downvote all you want because you want it for free... but you’d feel the same way. I paid for it, it’s mine. Go on swan! 🦢
They only give event heros (or Epic Heros) for free. these are Lunara, Lady Liadrin, Maiev Shadowsong, Tyrande Whisperwind, Morgl the Oracle, Nemsy Necrofizzle and Prince Arthas.
Lady Vashj... forget about upgrading the tavern and freezing a triple for next turn =/
PVE when? i just play the game for the pve
Read somewhere that it was June 10
It says 5 weeks.
It seems the "How to obtain" text for Nemsy is still unchanged. :P~~~ Blizzard.
I didn't have Nemsy, but i hate when they do things like this. If they wanna give out free stuff, create a new hero portrait, dont just give to everyone for free something that wasnt actually "free" before. Its just frustrating...
Why would you travel 50km?:D you could have just made gathering yourself
some people don’t know they can google problems to get a solution
VPN go bruuuh!!!
My Shop is closed on PC, what's up with that?
Every time they released an update, the patch is bugged. Problems with people in chat, problems with shop in game, problems. Problems, everywhere. And no answer obv.
my too and on android i cant rerol quests
Game seems to be broken on mobile again.
Starting to become a routine on patchdays
nothing is exclusive anymore... I have travelled 50km when Nemsy was released to the closest Fireplace Gathering just to obtain this Warlock Hero... and now Blizzard is giving it to everyone? wow...
kudos to your commitment
Or you could have just use GPS spoofing app on your cell phone and "simulate" the travel. #hackerman
