GWENT: The Witcher Card Game announced that the fourth season of Journey has arrived. The new season lasts for three months and revolves around Yennefer of Vengerberg. You know, one of the greatest sorceresses on the Continent and the true love of Geralt of Rivia.

If you’re new to the game, Journey is the game’s progression system that has more than 100 levels with each offering unique rewards. Players earn progress while being able to unlock new items by winning games either through Standard, Seasonal, and Draft.

The Journey

For the duration of the event, players get to unlock new rewards each week. These include avatars, card backs, and leader skins. There are also new achievements that allow players to get more ornaments. As players advance, they get to learn more about Yennefer with each week revealing a new vision from Nimue.

Update 8.2

Yennefer’s Journey, so to speak, arrives with Update 8.2. This new update brings some interesting changes to Xavier Lemmens. His provision has been lowered from eight to six, and his ability changed to:

  • Zeal.
  • Order (Melee): Banish a card from opponent's graveyard.
  • Order (Ranged): Banish a card from your graveyard.
  • Cooldown: 1

The dev team revealed that in certain matchups, being able to interact with the graveyard of the opponent can be rather powerful. It’s been observed that from some players, Xavier Lemmens doesn’t have much value. That’s why in many games players often mulligan the card. With these changes, he should become a cheap card while also becoming a more accessible tech card. It should

allow Xavier to be more interactive and less swingy.

Overwhelming Hunger has been changed as well with the charges now at two and provision bonus increased to 15. The team said that Overwhelming Hunger had a high win rate despite Monsters being classified as a “weak” faction. The changes should balance the card.
