You might have noticed that a quick update just went through and wonder what it’s all about. It’s pretty simple – Galakrond animations were sometimes causing disconnects. Mostly in case of Shaman, who used Quest Hero Power with Invoke cards. So Blizzard has decided to temporarily disable those animations until they fix this issue. The actual fix is supposed to come out next week.
We are currently in the process of rolling out a hotfix that will disable the animations for Galakrond. The reason for this:
We’ve found multiple occurrences in which Galakrond’s animations can cause the Hearthstone client to disconnect. The primary occurrence: when playing Quest Galakrond Shaman, we encountered (as well as received word) a bug where the client would disconnect after using Heart of Vir’naal + minions with the Invoke keyword.
This is just a temporary solution that will fix the client disconnects. We are aiming to ship a client patch within the next week that will be the long-term fix for this issue.
The team is continuing to keep an eye out for issues, so please do let us know if you encounter more pesky bugs ????
