In our previous blog, we covered some of the nitty-gritty facts about the wipe and what exactly it entails. It\u2019s 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\u2019ll be sharing some of the highlights of this upcoming patch.

A major beta patch is coming to Hearthstone soon, and in preparation for that, CM Zeriyah is giving everyone a heads up that their progress will be reset.
This includes gold, experience, arcane dust, and class levels.
Each pack purchased with real money will give players back 100 gold, and each arena entry will give players 150 gold.
There are also no current plans to do additional wipes, so any cards and levels acquired after this wipe will be usable when the game goes live.
If you tested the store before the wipe, you will get after redoing the introductory missions.
If you're not in the beta, you can always get a sense of the game from our card database and deckbuilder!
We've also got some details on the Season 14 PvP situation under the cut--you may have noticed NPCs suddenly being removed, and CM Lore explains why.
