"Saovine" UPDATE IS NOW LIVE!



New update for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is now available on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

With this update we’re introducing 21 new cards - mainly neutral golds, as well as game fixes and balance changes. Additionally, we are introducing our second holiday event Saovine: Holiday of the Dead for which you’ll be able to unlock a new avatar, border and title!

The following cards will have increased value for milling for 3 days following the release of the patch (more on this below):
  • Harpy

Would've liked a full refund for my Yenn Conjurer. I got her for my deathwish deck, and she's been changed to revenge: a clear downgrade.
Triss Butterfly isn't going to work anymore either.

Nothing mentioned for a fix for the constant XBOX crashes? Is this going to go on for another 2 months??

YenCon still works exactly the same, only the ability's tag has changed. This only matters for Cockatrice (if it worked with her at all).

Ah, that's right, I missed that griffin wouldn't work with it anyway, but cyclops would. It just bums me out to see gold's that worked with certain archetypes to have their effect changed.

Cyclops would have been buffed, but YenCon's deathwish ability wouldn't have triggered anyway, rendering the whole exercise moot.

So the card didn't have a lot of great synergy before, but it still has less now. It was probably never intended to have synergy with DW monsters anyway, but dorregaray probably wasn't intended to have synergy with restore either, and restore was given full refund value. In fairness, I probably wouldn't be complaining if Yenn Con wasn't the only gold I managed to get from my ladder kegs.

Yennefer: Connjurer and Triss: Butterfly Spell work exactly the same like last patch. The only thing that changed is the tag "Revenge" that was added to the game. Before there Deathwish explicitly said: "If moved from the board in your opponents turn". The description is more directly now, because it got its own tag; Same mechanic.

I just wanna say thanks for working so hard on such an awesome game! It blows my mind that it is free. From someone who has been playing video games for almost 30 years now, works full time as a medical provider and has a family... I love this game! I wish my wife thought she had time to play it (very busy with graduate school). I can see so many different types of people truly enjoying this game. Happy Holidays CD Projekt Red
