Blizzard has been consistently bringing in new content to their wide range of titles, and Herathstone is certainly far from what the fans had expected. So much content has already been added to this year’s titles, with the expansion of the latest Ashes of Outland as well as bringing in Illidan and other Burning Crusade era characters to the limelight.
And, with so much content being added to the title, Hearthstone’s latest patch brings balancing changes and fixes to game-breaking bugs. The developers have worked hard on it.
The first of all the changes to be brought into is the bug fix coming to Ethereal Conjurer, which was very responsible for breaking in a few games. After being played, games would sometimes bug and become stuck in a single phase, which essentially ends a match.
The latest bug fix brought into the game has aimed at fixing that issue. As stated by Blizzard, the Ethereal Conjurer would now be functioning correctly and the players would no more need to worry about the phases of the game getting locked.
As stated by Hearthstone, ‘In terms of balance changes, we have twelve overall, with the last eight being eligible for a full dust refund until June 1st. Players should expect the following changes to have taken place when the patch arrives. It’s time to enter the fray – Ashes of Outland is now live, and the Year of the Phoenix is officially here!’
The changes that have brought into are-
Aldor Attendant: The cost has been decreased from 2 to 1 and Attack/Health has been changed from 2/3 to 1/3.
Torrent: The cost has been decreased from 5 to 4.
Shattered Rumbler: The Attack/Health has been changed from 4/6 to 5/6.
The Lurker Below: The Attack/Health has been changed from 6/3 to 6/5.
The below-mentioned eight cards have been made eligible for a full dust refund for the players that want to spend dust crafting them before the appearance of the changes:
Priestess of Fury: The Attack/Health has been changed from 6/7 to 6/5.
Crimson Sigil Runner: The Attack/Health has been changed from 2/1 to 1/1.
Scavenger’s Ingenuity: Players can draw a Beast and give it +3/+3, mechanic has been changed to +2/+2.
Shadowjeweler Hanar: The Attack/Health has been changed from 1/5 to 1/4.
Blackjack Stunner: As the Stunner’s Battlecry gets activated, the minion of the opponent will now be purchased 1 more instead of 2 more.
Imprisoned Scrap Imp: +2/+2 buff after Dormant has been decreased to +2/+1.
Bloodboil Brute: The Attack/Health has been changed from 6/8 to 5/8.
Bloodsworn Mercenary: The Attack/Health has been changed from 3/3 to 2/2.
All of these new changes will now be having a decently radical change on the way that the decks are being built. Despite some seem to be relatively smaller changes; the reduction of a single stat can make a card go from invaluable to being outclassed by dozens of others.
The Aldor Attendant is certainly going to fit into plenty more decks now, however, as the card gets a bit more important as a 1-drop, in spite of the changes brought into the damage. And, on the other hand, Scavenger’s Ingenuity might get taken away by many of the players to bring in a card that will give a stronger buff.
Irrespective of the Meta changes that have been brought in, some patches might also come in. The players can expect these changes to be activated during the launch of 17.2.1 on 18th May.
