Hey all,

Patch 25.6 is now live! It brings Buddies back to Battlegrounds and sets the stage for Hearthstone’s next expansion, Festival of Legends! You can login now to get your free E.T.C., Band Manager Legendary card. Follow this post for information about known issues we’re tracking this patch.

The issues we’re tracking this patch include:

In Battlegrounds, Sire Denathrius and his Buddy are temporarily banned due to a bug. They are scheduled to return to the game in the next major patch.

We are tracking reports of disconnections in Battlegrounds since the new patch. We have temporarily banned Enhance-o Mechano and its Buddy while we investigate this issue.

The team is aware that the new Hero Power animation for the Inzah Shaman hero skin is missing. It will be reconnected soon.

The team is investigating a visual bug with Hero Power animation for the Hedanis Priest hero skin.

The team is aware that sounds from other apps can no longer be played while playing on mobile. This was an intentional change made as a temporary solution to a bug with background sounds causing crashes. A permanent solution to the bug that also allows for other apps to play sounds is scheduled for a future patch.

[Added 3/14] The team is aware that E.T.C.'s Band can’t make it into the official Deck Builder. It’s an exclusive joint, but he’s working on getting them their credentials.

We will continue to update this post as we get more information.
