We're getting some card balance changes in Hearthstone next week! Blizzard is giving us all a heads up due to the Masters Tour Undercity event that will be taking place next weekend. Here are the changes:
- Renew - Cost decreased to 1 Mana (From 2).
- Razormane Battleguard - Health decreased to 2 (Down from 3).
- Arcanist Dawngrasp - Provides +2 Spell Damage (Down from +3). (Questline reward from Sorcerer's Gambit)
- Garrote - Shuffle 2 Bleeds into your deck (Down from 3).
All these changes are going to live in a balance patch next week. The card nerfs will all be eligible for a dust refund for two weeks following the patch, but Renew won't be since it is a buff, Sorcerer's Gambit will be the disenchant target for the Dawngrasp nerf. Once the patch notes arrive next week prior to the patch going live, we'll get to see the dev commentary for why these changes are being made. Read on for the official post.
We will be making some card changes in a patch going out early next week that we wanted to let you know about, to give players time to prepare for Masters Tour: Undercity, taking place from November 19-21. These are the cards that will be changing:
Old: 2 Attack, 3 Health → New: 2 Attack, 2 Health
Arcanist Dawngrasp (Mage Questline final reward)
Old: Battlecry: For the rest of the game, you have Spell Damage +3. → New: For the rest of the game, you have Spell Damage +2.
Old: Deal 2 damage to the enemy hero. Shuffle 3 Bleeds into your deck that deal 2 more when drawn. → New: Deal 2 damage to the enemy hero. Shuffle 2 Bleeds into your deck that deal 2 more when drawn.
Old: [Costs 2] → New: [Costs 1]
The first three cards will be eligible for the normal full-dust refund for two weeks following the patch. Renew, which will go up in power level, will not get a dust refund. Keep an eye out for Patch Notes early next week for dev comments on these balance changes and more.
