Latest Hearthstone Patch is Live!

See also

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft just received its latest patch. Changes include the Abusive Sergeant and Dark Iron Dwarf getting set to only boosting minions for one turn (+2 attack until the end of turn.)

Blood Imp is changed from 1/1 to 0/1 as well as no longer providing the mass health boost it used to. Now it only provides +1 Health at the end of the turn.

Unleash the Hounds buffed to being only 2 mana (down from 4) making it a more viable hunter option.

Defender of Argus and Novice Engineer had their attack nerfed to 2/3 from 3/3 and 1/1 from 1/2 respectively

Pyroblast is nerfed and is now 10 mana (up from 8)

Sylvanas Windrunner is now 6 mana (up from 5)

Warsong Commander now no longer gives all of your minions charge and now only gives minions with 3 or less attack charge.

While Blizzard has stated these changes are meant to help encourage players to not always use specific cards in their decks (Sylvanas and Defender of Argus being the main cases here) it feels as though it's not enough to deter from using them. We'll see if these cards get any further tweaks in the weeks to come as we ramp up for Hearthstone to be released, hopefully, in the near future.

That's all from me for now but feel free to check out my Twitch.TV stream where I play Hearthstone at Twitch.TV/GamePanda326
