May 4 HotFixes
Old Murk-Eye and Captain's Parrot Craftable TodayAs Blizzard explains in the post below, you can no longer obtain Old Murk-Eye and Captain's Parrot from their respective achievements and the developer had previously announced the ability to craft them as a result. That hasn't been available until a hotfix released today.
The methods in which to acquire Captain’s Parrot and Old Murk-Eye were disabled with the 5.0 patch – before the official launch of Whispers of the Old Gods. After discussing this with the team, we agree that the cutoff time for acquiring Captain’s Parrot and Old Murk-Eye was not made entirely clear.
UPDATE: In response to recent feedback and levels of interest, we will be re-enabling the Quests to acquire Old Murk-Eye and Captain’s Parrot starting with the launch of Whispers of the Old Gods in your region. These Quests will be re-enabled until Monday, May 2nd at 08:59 CEST. We expect this to be a one-time only extension for these quests as part of our rollout of the standard and wild formats.
If you have met the requirements to acquire Old-Murk Eye and/or Captain’s Parrot and have not yet received it once Whispers of the Old Gods goes live in your region, please re-log into Hearthstone after the expansion goes live in your region to receive your reward.
Please note that since we’re re-enabling the quest, our Support team will no longer be assisting with this, and there is thus no need for you to submit additional Support requests regarding these cards. Thanks!
UPDATE:The ability to craft Old Murk-Eye and Captain’s Parrot will be re-enabled via hotfix today, May 4. Thank you for your patience.
Whispers of the Old Gods will release on the following days for each region:
Europe: April 27
Americas: April 26
Asia: April 27 [u][/u]
Old Gods In My CollectionThough it's been active for about a week, we wanted to take the time to formally announce the addition of Whispers of the Old Gods to your collection manager. We have a lot of improvements in store for it, but wanted to make sure that those who continuously use it are able to keep track of their ever growing collection.
Spring Preliminaries Running From May 20-22Despite issues and controversy, the Hearthstone Championship Tour must continue. Over the May 21 weekend Blizzard will host the Spring Preliminaries, giving one more competitor an automatic bye to BlizzCon.
Innkeepers from all across the Americas have heeded the Whispers of the Old Gods and their call for more Hearthstone! From May 20–22, we’ll be inviting players from across the Americas to participate in the Hearthstone Championship Tour’s Spring Preliminary, and you can join in to cheer them on and perhaps duel with some fellow players.
The action begins on Friday, May 20, as the winners of the Tavern Hero Qualifiers battle it out in the Spring Season Tavern Hero Tournament. The top 32 finishers will then join 128 of the Americas' top-ranked players in the Spring Preliminary on May 21 and 22 to determine who will participate in the Americas Spring Championship for a chance to qualify for the Hearthstone World Championship at BlizzCon!
All of the venues listed below will be open to the public, so come along to watch the action unfold, have a duel or two with other fans, and enjoy some of the side events lined up for attendees.
