Horde Garrison Beta Redesign
If you watch our video from an earlier build, you can clearly see the layout and sheer size of the starter-level Horde Garrison. Now, in build 18505, the Horde Garrison has been reduced in size considerably, although it is still not as tiny as the Alliance starting Garrison. Check out the video, for the old Garrison, and the images for the new one!

Hearthstone Beta: Upcoming Changes
2013/09/30 at 12:25 PM
In our previous blog, we covered some of the nitty-gritty facts about the wipe and what exactly it entails. It’s an exciting time for the Hearthstone team, since this wipe will coincide with our first major closed beta patch for both the Americas and Europe regions. Our update covers a wealth of bug fixes and quality of life improvement within Hearthstone, and today we’ll be sharing some of the highlights of this upcoming patch. Many of these changes are based on feedback that you, our valued community, provided to us on the forums.
We’ve gotten a lot of comments on quests. The community has discovered some fun hidden quests, but some of our daily quests have frustrated those of you who have quests that don’t correspond to your favored class. After the patch, daily quests that require you to win with a specific class will now give you a choice between two classes, allowing you some additional flexibility.
