Nine Card Nerfs Are Coming Next Week

Recommended Posts

It seems that Blizzard isn't quite done with balance changes for Ashes of Outland, as a second round of tweaks will be implemented early next week. Nine cards are getting nerfed and one is being buffed.

As expected, three more Demon Hunter cards are getting toned down. Everyone also anticipated a nerf for Sacrificial Pact and indeed it will come with Patch 17.0.2. Three Neutral cards are also getting "balanced", with Bad Luck Albatross being one of them.

On the other side, we do have a single buff as Libram of Justice will get its mana cost down by one.

Check out all the updates below:
