The next Hearthstone updates bring content for every game mode and new in-game features. Check the 24.0 patch note with Esports.gg

Hearthstone 24.0 patch arrives on Tuesday 26 in preparation for the Murder at Castle Natrhia expansion. While the highlights might be focusing on the constructed game mode, this update brings news for everyone! Let’s go over the 24.0 Hearthstone patch notes and unravel its secrets!

Hearthstone updates with Patch 24.0

Murder at Castle Natrhia patch, on top of the brand new 135 cards and mechanics, will bring a plethora of updates for other game modes. Battlegrounds, Mercenaries, Duels and Arena will see new content and changes. Furthermore, Hearthstone is releasing a new set of game features and fixes.

What’s new in Battlegrounds?

The 24.0 Hearthstone patch comes with new content for Battlegrounds. While this is not a major update, we do have interesting things to highlight. The first of them is the brand new set of emotes!

Until now, Battlegrounds emotes were only available for players with Perks. However, the 24.0 Hearthstone patch notes state that they will become free for all once the update hits.

The new special Mystery Mayhem Battlegrounds Emotes will introduce Murder at Castle Natrhia themed reactions to Battlegrounds. The set will be available on August 9th but bear in mind that this set of emotes won’t be free.

Regarding gameplay content, the 24.0 Hearthstone patch notes reveal that we will be getting the new Heistbaron Togwaggle Hero to commit “The Perfect Crime”. The new hero power might be game-breaking. Imagine buying an entire tavern at the cost of 3 minions, or even less!

Dev Comment: At the end of each Recruit phase, the cost of your next Hero Power will reduce by 1 automatically. Each time you use Togwaggle’s Hero Power, its cost resets to the original 9 Gold cost and starts the cycle over again.

Moreover, there are some dragon redesigns coming with the Hearthstone 24.0 patch. The underwhelming Red Whelp will see an attack buff, while the problematic Evolving Chromawing will return to the tavern.

  • Core

New Hearthstone Features with patch 24.0

The Hearthstone team has repeatedly said that 2022 will be a year of improving what we already have, and the 24.0 patch notes bring some news in that area. Much-awaited features will be available tomorrow for players to enjoy. Furthermore, the update brings important bug fixes to the game. These are the most relevant ones:

  • Multiple Hero portraits selection
  • Random Hero Skins
  • Free decks are no longer limited to once per account
  • You can now hold down the Spacebar to continuously open packs
  • Fixed a bug where if you attack a minion and then play Multi-Strike, you are unable to then attack the enemy hero
  • Fixed a Duels bug preventing deck codes from working with Neutral heroes

The next Hearthstone expansion will be a celebration no matter which game mode you like to play. You just need to make sure you know all the facts before jumping to conclusions, so if you still have any questions, feel free to check the full 24.0 Hearthstone patch notes in the official blog.
