While you might not have noticed it, ever since Patch 22.0 dropped, the amount of XP gained in Mercenaries was cut in half. The bug was quickly identified, and a hotfix was just rolled out. On top of the XP problem, it also fixed leaderboards (they were stuck before and didn’t update).
However, we’ve also got an update to known issues, one of which include a full Dust refund for Korrak the Bloodrager (refund is in place because the card is a Level 1 reward on rewards track with Tavern Pass active). It was supposed to last until December 18, but they cut it short on December 8 by mistake. They will bring it back in the next hotfix, but be sure to not disenchant it now, as you will get the regular 400 instead of 1600 Dust.
Interestingly enough, something I haven’t noticed is that the new Alterac Valley game board also doesn’t seem to appear in rotation. Not a big issue, I guess, but still.
I’ll keep you updated and let you know when Dust refunds for Korrak are back.
- (Added 12/8) We are aware that the full refund period for Korrak the Bloodrager was unintentionally short. This was the result of a typo causing the period to be set to end on 12/8 instead of the intended 12/18. This is slated to be updated in an upcoming hotfix planned for this week. If you intend to disenchant Korrak, please hold on to him until that full disenchant value is reinstated.
- (Added 12/8) We are aware that the new Alterac Valley game board does not appear to be in rotation. The team is investigating the issue.
- (Added 12/8) The team is aware that certain card interactions are slowed while Snowfall Graveyard is active. The team is investigating the issue.
12/8 Update: We are currently rolling out a hotfix that addresses the bug causing Mercenaries XP gains to be reduced. The hotfix also provides support to fix a recent issue that caused leaderboards to stop updating.
