The latest minor update to Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft has hit battle.net!

Journey To The Ancient Labyrinth, Lords Of The Fallen's First DLC In March

Though it does not add any new game changers - we must emphasize the 'minor' update portion - players who achieve level 20 or higher by the end of February (which ends this weekend, folks) will earn the Lunar Card back.

Currently, World of Warcraft is celebrating its annual Lunar Festival, the Azerothian equivalent of the Chinese New Year.

For players who wish to look but not play (right here), they've made Spectator mode - or stalker mode, however you prefer - even easier. When a match you are spectating ends, your client will be put into a waiting state until your friend joins another match. You'll automatically connect to their next match without having to re-enable Spectator Mode.

And for those who enjoy playing the map a little bit more than the game (again, right here), the animation on the Mimiron's head has been greatly updated. Go ahead and push the red button. Blizzard is daring you.

In terms of smaller bug fixes, "Cogmaster has taken a break from constructing mechanical menaces and has given himself a tune-up! His attack will now properly increase when a Mech is in play, even after his Attack and Health stats have been swapped."

Blizzard will be making some big announcements for Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm and their new Team Fortress 2 title Overwatch at this weekend's PAX East. Stay tuned for more.
