New Patch Now Live! Balance Changes, Bonus Scraps, Bug Fixes and More!

The new patch for Gwent is now live! Bringing numerous balance changes and bug fixes to the game.

For a limited time, cards that have been reduced in power will be able to be Milled for their full crafting cost. The Scraps awarded for Common and Rare cards has been increased by 100% and players that have purchased Kegs with real money prior to this patch will receive 30 bonus Scraps for each Keg bought.

We're working on importing the changed data onto GwentDB and will have it available as soon as possible. All changes are now live on GwentDB!

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

With this update, our main focus is to improve balance, solve some of the major issues that were affecting gameplay and adjust the prices for milling common and rare cards. Additionally, some cards will be subject to a limited-time refund (5 days) in the form of an increase in the amount of Scraps awarded for milling them (note, however, that milling the Premium versions of these cards will not award Meteorite Powder):
