After a myriad of teasers and 'leaks', Gwent's Halloween update has now finally arrived. There's 21 new cards to collect, both neutral and faction-specific, a variety of balance changes intended to increase the power level of struggling archetypes, and best of all, a singleplayer PvE event that rewards a new border and voiced avatar.

There are simply too many changes to cover in brief, so if you're interested in all of the details you should visit the official patch notes. What I will comment on is that Harpy and Restore can be scrapped for full value, so if you aren't planning to use them right away I would suggest dismantling them. You can always craft them later if you so desire, and at the same cost, so there really no reason to keep them around.

As for the PvE event "Saovine: Holiday of the Dead", you'll be glad to hear that its just as good as the previous one! The voice acting is excellent, the mission objectives are interesting, and most importantly of all, the whole event hits a a perfect balance between challenge and failure-induced frustration. So if you have even a tiny bit of interest in Gwent I would highly recommend you give it a look. It really is a fun bit of content! Also, this image of drunken Regis:
