Hearthstone: New Update Balance Changes

Blizzard has released yet another update for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. This update will be nothing more than a few minor fixes and some small balance changes.

Murloc cards such as Grimscale Oracle, Coldlight Seer, Murloc Tidecaller, and Murloc Warleader now only effect friendly Murloc minions. This certainly eliminates a lot of the synergy in Murloc Paladin decks.

One Night in Karazhan cards will now show up with the same frequency in Arena as all other cards. The flavor text for Etherial Peddler now reads in a way that is more clear, and more true to the nature of Rogue’s class card thief abilities.

A few new daily quests have been added, so hopefully that will help people save gold for the upcoming Heroic Tavern Brawl.

Yogg-Saron, Hope’s End will now apply overload after casting spells with that effect. Sir Finley Mrrgglton had a glitch where he would offer the lesser heal hero power to Tyrande if played by her. That no longer happens.

I wasn’t lying when I said these changes were minor. Though, following a series of major changes to the game, I think this is welcome. It should be noted that the Murloc cards that were changed will not offer full dust value if you disenchant them, so don’t even bother.

Keep your eyes open for more future changes as we approach Heroic Tavern Brawl!
