Blizzard is pushing out a hotfix that is disabling Galakrond animations temporarily.

  • There are currently issues with clients disconnecting during Galakrond animations.
  • A client patch will arrive next week that will enable them again and fix the issue long-term.
  • A fix is also being worked on for an issue with Twin Tyrant's animation.

Quote From Chris Sierra

We are currently in the process of rolling out a hotfix that will disable the animations for Galakrond. The reason for this:

We’ve found multiple occurrences in which Galakrond’s animations can cause the Hearthstone client to disconnect. The primary occurrence: when playing Quest Galakrond Shaman, we encountered (as well as received word) a bug where the client would disconnect after using Heart of Vir’naal + minions with the Invoke keyword.

This is just a temporary solution that will fix the client disconnects. We are aiming to ship a client patch within the next week that will be the long-term fix for this issue.

The team is continuing to keep an eye out for issues, so please do let us know if you encounter more pesky bugs

There's also a slight problem with Twin Tyrant's battlecry animation, it only playes the fire atack and not the ice one

This is one we are aware of, Dean actually mentioned this on the livestream. We are working to fix that one also! Thanks for the heads up though!
