The latest patch has introduced the nerfs announced a few days ago.


Introducing the nerfs a day or so early has created a strange metagame. Druid has taken a huge hit, with no new cards to replace the old ones, and so Murloc Paladin is having a day in the sun while Old Murk-Eye is still available. It is also interesting to note that decks that previously ran Big Game Hunter are still doing so. There are players who still have access to the pre-nerf cards by not logging out, but you are unable to queue into those people.

Nerfed cards can now be disenchanted for full dust value. This value is 40 for Commons, 100 for Rares and 400 for Epics. If the cards are golden, those numbers become 400,800, and 1600. Be sure to dust these cards, as you can always recraft the ones you need later.

The patch has also introduced a new game board and a new emote. "Wow" has replaced "Sorry". I think most people will be glad to not have to hear Jaina's apologies in the future.

The card backs for the next three months have also been revealed. The names for May, June, and July's card backs are Shadowmoon Valley, Zul'Drak, and Halfhill respectively.

I thought the nerfs were sad, but when I read that "Sorry" is removed, I finally know what true sadness feels like. Goodbye saltiness, ultimate BM and opponent's fear and desperation, you will be missed. 

At least Stampeding Kodo and Gladiator Longbow are fixed now.

Have you heard about our new lord and saviour "Wow"?

Nah, clearly the mage "Hello" is the new most trolly emote :P

 

I always make sure to annoy-o-jaina any secret paladins I face on my freeze mage.

"Amazing" just doesn't have the power of "My Apologies." Even though there are heroes that "benefit" from the change, mage is crying in the corner. That is actually the reason I stopped playing my casino mage. Jainy just isn't playable anymore. 

Seriously though, I don't see a reason to remove Sorry. Players can always squelch their opponents, so why not keep it for those who love BM?

As usual, the hearthstone community insists of being a bunch of precious crybabies who are incapable of using common sense and blizzard will always cater to what the bigger crowd wants/complains about.

From what I know about the Tracer pose drama, it doesn't even have to be a bigger group. It doesn't even have to be a reasonable demand (the game is Pegi12 for a reason). I don't actually know what leads to their decision to remove or change stuff. They probably just change anything people cry about, which is not really way to go. Last time, we lost a deck, this time we lose a part of culture, who knows what we will lose next. Alas, such is blizzard's power to change fate. Melodrama aside, it's stupid that they change something that most players are okay with, and a not-so-small group of players actually use and love.

Yes! Now I can attack face with longbow...not really.

As a player of control hunter, I actually appreciate it. The bug lost me a game or two (only counting those I would have won otherwise).

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
