While a lot of bugs are being removed, some are also being added, as the Dalaran Heist Chapters 2-5 getting hit with several visual issues with the tracking of which boss a players is on, the crowns for the heroes that have beaten a chapter etc. You can check all of those out in the blue post under the patch notes.

Today’s Hearthstone update adds a new neutral Legendary Minion, card buffs for every class, new Arena sets, and much more! Read on for details about the Rise of the Mech update.
Make the most of the Rise of the Mech event by logging in anytime between June 3 and July 1 and you’ll earn a golden copy of the new neutral Legendary Mech SN1P-SN4P! Crash this clawed clunker into another Mech to build a behemoth of a bot, then do it again!
Missed the event? Normal SN1P-SN4P can still be crafted for the usual cost of 1600 Arcane Dust.
Important Note: SN1P-SN4P will be considered part of the The Boomsday Project and will rotate with that set, however SN1P-SN4P will NOT drop from The Boomsday Project card packs. Golden SN1P-SN4P will only be obtainable as part of the Rise of the Mech event, and the normal SN1P-SN4P can only be crafted with Arcane Dust.
The terrible tinkerer Blastmaster Boom has been busy in the lab and has cooked up some buffs to cards from every class! For more details on these changes, including developer insights, check out the Rise of the Mech announcement blog here.

Want to see these updated cards in action? Be sure to tune in to the Mech-vitational event being held June 3-4.
We’ve decided to make a change to how Reckless Experimenter functions due to an unwanted interaction with SN1P-SN4P that allows for an early-game infinite damage combo in Priest decks. We’re also aware of some interactions that SN1P-SN4P creates in Wild when played alongside multiple Mechwarpers, and we’ll be keeping a close eye on how that plays out over the next few weeks.
Players will be able to disenchant Reckless Experimenter for its full Arcane Dust value for two weeks.
Quality of Life Changes:
Players who are disconnected from Hearthstone due to an unstable connection, switching applications, or by locking their mobile devices will no longer be directed back to the login/launch screen when attempting to reconnect.
The game will now seamlessly reconnect in the background from any screen, instead of only during gameplay. This includes during deck editing, or while browsing the Collection Manager.
Note: We are still improving this feature, and you may encounter some issues with the current version.
A new popup has been added to alert players of their offline/reconnect status.
Accessing Hearthstone Offline:
Players can now access their collection even when their device has lost connection to the Internet.
The following features of the Collection Manager can now be accessed while offline:
View owned and unowned cards in the collection
Set Favorite Heroes
Set Favorite Cardbacks
Opening a pack that was in the process of being opened
Any changes made in the collection manager while offline will be saved on the player’s device until the next time they regain network access. Note that some changes may be lost if a player creates multiple decks or edits the same deck simultaneously on multiple devices.
We’ve implemented a new feature to reduce chances of matching against the same player and same class multiple times in a row. Some exceptions may occur when players have few matchmaking options near their rank.
Match quality should be improved for players in ranks 25 – 21.
Arena Set Rotation
Blastmaster Boom needs more test subjects, and what better place to find them than the Arena? Starting with the Rise of the Mech update, the available cards in Arena drafts will be rotating to the following explosively exciting sets:
Goblins vs. Gnomes
The Grand Tournament
One Night in Karazhan
The Boomsday Project
Rise of Shadows
Shado-Pan – Earned from completing 5 matches during the July 2019 season.
Stolen Thunder – Earned by purchasing the Masters Bundle.

The animation for Togwaggle’s Scheme shuffling a high number of cards (5+) has been updated to shuffle in batches of 5 cards and at a higher speed.
Hadronox’s Deathrattle animation no longer appears larger than intended when it triggers an opponent’s Duplicate secret.
Fixed an issue that could cause Kabal Chemist to disconnect your opponent when played.
Playing Soularium and Plot Twist quickly together will no longer cause a visual issue.

[Dalaran Heist] Bartender Bob should no longer show an empty speech bubble upon exiting a friendly encounter.
[Android] Changed how texture packs on Android devices are handled. This may cause some users to have to redownload these assets.

The Rise of the Mech brings a lot of new and improved features, including 18 cards being buffed!
Dalaran Heist Bugs (source)
We wanted to make you all aware of an issue being introduced with today’s (6/3) update that will affect chapters 2-5 of The Dalaran Heist. We are actively working on a fix, and hope to have something out later this week to address the following:
Players who are in Chapter 2 – 5 of the Dalaran Heist will be shown the Chapter 1 starting boss in the boss card flip screen instead of the actual boss they are facing.
Chapter 2 – 5 will show the crowns for heroes that have beaten chapter 1 instead of the actual progress for chapters 2-5.
** This is a visual only issue, progress is still being tracked appropriately.
The Hero Power and Deck selection checkmarks will show the chapter 1 versions instead of the correct chapter 2 – 5 versions.
** Like the crowns, this is a visual issue only.
Thank you for your patience.
