Dean Ayala just tweeted out some rather surprising but very welcome news - Demon Hunter is getting nerfed, and the balance changes are due today!
- Skull of Gul'dan, Imprisoned Antaen, Eye Beam and Aldrachi Warblades are all on the hit list
- Demon Hunter will also receive Arena adjustments
- Expect more balance changes over the next few weeks
What do you think about this announcement? Were you prepared?
We're planning on making some balance changes that should go out today. Cards we're looking at are Skull of Gul'dan, Imprisoned Antaen, Eye Beam, and Aldrachi Warblades. We'll send out the final info from our official channels when it's ready.
We're also making some adjustments to Demon Hunter in Arena. We don't have enough data to make large scale micro-adjustments, but we're opting to make balance changes by hand while we wait for the normal full patch to take place.
As for Demon Hunter class balance, we'd like to keep the class-defining pieces more powerful while pulling back on the cards that make DH feel like it's good at everything.
The expectation should be that there will be a lot of balance iteration over the next few weeks. We'll be making changes a little more frequently until we feel that DH is in a fun, unique, and balanced state.
We have another patch planned for late next week that will address any further changes we want to make to Constructed, Battlegrounds, or Arena.
