Hearthstone Patch 11.0 Is Live

Recommended Posts

Blizzard has made a few improvements to friendly challenges and the Arena in preparation for the release of The Witchwood.

 

Patch 11.0 has been deployed in preparation for the release of The Witchwood on April 12th. Though the primary purpose of the patch was to add the in-game resources needed for The Witchwood, patch 11.0 brings a couple of unexpected new features and updates as well. You can read the entire patch notes here, and a brief summary of the patch below:

  • Added resources for the upcoming release of The Witchwood on April 12th.
  • Daily quests are updated:
    • Quests which awarded 40 gold now award 50 gold.
    • Most daily quests are now easier to complete.
    • Quests accepted prior to this patch will keep their old requirements and rewards.
  • Friendly Challenge Deck Sharing:
    • You can now share decks with friends during friendly challenges.
    • This feature is not available at Tavern or Fireside Brawls.
  • Arena Updates:
  • Molten Giant had its Mana cost reverted to 20, and is briefly playable in its current state in Standard!

Strange, with the new patch I tried that deck sharing feature with a friend, it works nicely and we both got the Fireside Card back, no idea why :D

It was never a really good deck, just being cancerous with all the sap, vanish, oracle stuff making your opponent over draw and prevent them from playing the game.

Also it does not really get any support with The Witchwood.

There are definitely better legends to craft, imo.

I wouldn’t rule kingsbane out, it’s very powerful with the right support. Though that’s not going to be a mill engine any more.

But I think the only sane advice anyone can give right now regarding crafting if your dust is limited is to wait and see what meta the expansion brings.

Without Oracle Kingsbane has no draw at all to find Leeching Poison before die to aggro and without lifesteal kingsbane is completely useless.

I think the new weapon with lifesteal will replace the old kingsbane

Anyone else sitting around yawning at the old meta games and "desperately" waiting for Thursday? :D

I got wild Legend a few days ago and figured I’d drop myself down to base rank 5 Standard ready for experimenting with the new meta. I had a pirate quest so I loaded up an old school pirate warrior expecting it to get crushed... but it keeps winning :D

Quite a few people messing around with molten giants, but still it does a lot better against the meta decks than I expected. Though with rotations it’s truely wild-only in a few days. So just saying goodbye to my first real deck hehe. Warrior has by far my most wins even though I hardly play any aggro at all any more, from months of grinding to Legend with pre-patches pirates. I still feel ill whenever I see tunnel trogg and totem golem...

I never understood how grinding it out with something so boring can be fun some/many ppl. But I am just a weird persons :D 

I made it to legend with aggro paladin. It's not fun, but it did the job. That's what mattered for that season.

For this season, I wanted to hit rank 5 and get a golden paladin. Dude paladin in wild did it. Its boring, but did the job.

Having fun is very important, but sometimes you have a goal. You try to get there with whatever works.

I didn't want to it's wrong and a ton of players are obviously happy doing it this way. 

I only said I don't understand it. Ofc I know the reasons but then those golden pala guys show up in casual too. So they are grinding it out with pala to get to high/legend rank then they keep playing the same bs for "fun" casual? WTF?

Well, it’s different when you’re doing it for the first time or two. I think it’s natural we generally see a lot of aggro. Faster games lead to faster rank unless you can get a really good win rate with a slower deck and faster gold/mission rewards. Also Aggro decks are typically the cheapest of the viable decks so the first high tier deck most people will be able to make will be aggro.

I’ve grown a bit tired of aggro these days, still haven’t got my gold Paladin or Hunter because I get bored of playing them too fast. Though I do still enjoy pirate warrior when I occasionally load it up for some reason. I just generally get more out of control/combo decks these days. But I have people on my FL who only play Aggro decks because that’s what they enjoy most; slower decks are, well, slower...

I disagree with the general ‘Aggro decks are mindless’ type criticism. They’re often easy to play, and even played imperfectly will get a lot of free wins. Whereas misplays in slower decks can be much more punishing. But there are still important decisions that impact win rate even with the most basic face decks. The difference between a bad player playing Aggro and a good player playing Aggro is generally smaller than the difference between a bad player playing control and a good player playing control, but there is still a difference.

Hi aleco, is kingsbane's deck still recommended without Oracle in standard??. Cz im wanna craft it

I'm playing kingsbane rogue without oracle, but I'm doing it in wild. I think that the deck has some good chance even in standard, just you play the deck differently without oracle. Witchwood has one weapon buff card if I remember well. You just need a more midrangey build. If the deck will be good or not, is a matter of if those kind of deck will be good or not (nowaday, in K&C meta, they are not that much good).

But I suggest you to don't craft anything for some weeks, as the meta will change a lot, and maybe you'll fine something you like more to play.

      Right before the news for the upcoming PvE Adventure hits, Blizzard announced some much needed balance changes.
      Two card buffs from the May update will be reverted, while three more cards will be nerfed in an update coming next week.
      In May, we had the first card buffs in Hearthstone's history. In an occasion like that, it was certain that some of these buffs would be hit or miss. While there were definitely some misses, some of these biffs hit harder than expected and thus they will now will be reverted. These cards are Extra Arms, which will go back to costing 3 mana, and Luna's Pocket Galaxy going back to 7 mana.


      Two more cards from Standard are also getting nerfed in the August 26 update. Mage will suffer another big loss, as Conjurer's Calling will now cost 4 mana (up from 3).

      Another much needed nerf is that of Dr. Boom, Mad Genius. The 7-mana 7/7 (infinite 7s) meme started from the original card will be no more, as the cost of this heavily used Hero card will be upped to 9.

      Finally, a lot of Wild players can breathe out in relief as Barnes' cost will be increased to 5 mana, up from 4. I am not sure if this will be enough to alleviate the frustrations of the Wild community with the Legendary minion, but at least it's a step to the right direction.

      You can read about Blizzard's thinking behind these nerfs in the official blog post.

      In this new Brawl, all minions work like Nightmare Amalgam.
      This means that all minions count as Elementals, Mechs, Demons, Murlocs, Dragons, Beasts, Pirates and Totems!
      Since this a Constructed Tavern Brawl, you want to build your deck carefully. It's  clever to focus on synergies of a specific Tribe (Murloc, Pirate and Mech/Magnetic decks being the most successful ones so far) but you can also create some busted combos if you mix and match.
      Key cards for each type of Tribe include:
      Elementals: Lesser Ruby Spellstone, Frost Lich Jaina Mechs: Galvanizer, Mechwarper, Magnetic cards Demons: Ectomancy, Sacrificial Pact, Sense Demons Murlocs: Murloc Warleader, Underbelly Angler, Old Murk-Eye - basically anything that has Murloc written on it Dragons: Duskbreaker, Wyrmrest Agent, Drakonid Operative, Twilight Guardian Beasts: Crackling Razormaw, Master's Call, Scavenging Hyena, Revenge of the Wild Pirates: Ship's Cannon, Patches the Pirate Totems: Thing from Below, Totemic Surge, Splitting Axe Some Tribe combinations favour specific classes (like Elemental for Mages and Beasts for Hunters and Druids) or are strictly restricted to them (Totems and Demons), while classes like Shaman enjoy the freedom of being decent for various deck styles.
      Don't forget to grab your Hungry Crab, Golakka Crawler and a board clear - you are going to need them! Menagerie cards will also buff nicely your entire board.

      Mike Donais appeared yesterday on his daughter's stream, where he played some games and talked about various topics. He may also have inadvertently made a major reveal about two upcoming nerfs.
      A private message from Jared Noel, a former member of Hearthstone Analytics at Blizzard, appeared on stream. It was mentioned in it that changes would be made Conjurer's Calling and Extra Arms. The former will be increased to 4 mana, while the latter - even though it was one of buffed cards from The Boomsday Project - will be reverted to 3 mana.

      Now, Mike may have been replying "yes" to anything said above, but judging from his reaction this chat log wasn't meant to be shown on stream.
       
      The previous day from the stream, the Hearthstone developer had revealed that there will be an announcement on balance changes this week.
      mdonais
      Hopefully they are prioritizing a nerf patch before the Single Player Content patch
      Yep, we will give more info on balance changes this week hopefully. (source)
      During the stream, Donais also talked about a lot of other issues like card balance and Wild balance in particular, Arena changes, card design and more. Some interesting tidbits are that for Arena, they will revisit the old system, where you could see powerful cards and weak cards in the same pick - without this necessarily being a permanent change. There's also talk about upgrading Priest's board clears - one of the class's main weaknesses - since the team doesn't want to reprint the same cards.
