Hearthstone Patch #1

Hearthstone Patch #1

A new build has been deployed to the servers. Achievements have been added, cards have been updated, and more!

Important: We are aware of an issue that is causing card tooltips to not display their attack and health.

    Look, my theory here is that it's marked as Beta Patch 1# because they actually decided that it's finished so now they are waiting until next week to start sending out beta invites... I hope this is correct.

    Agreed. For a second I thought I'd missed the start of beta by going to bed, but luckily not.

    First patch of many to come. I don't doubt there'll be more NOOOOOOOOOOOO in the months to come, especially when serious beta starts and the more shrewd players get their hands on the game. Glad Blizz doesn't hold on to broken cards or concepts too hard, but simply goes to the next idea.

    angelcrest - the thread.

    So how does this relate to beta starting? Hearthstone Beta Patch #1 - can I draw conclusions that they have started inviting?

    #7 angelcrest (Beta Patch 3388)

    No they haven't. I was bored as hell when I saw the updates which made me overwhelmingly exicited. I do play on cockatrice and there is a tournament today so these changes affect me and others like me so much.

    This is data mining which is done by a bot as soon as blizzard applies the patch to their version. Which would mean  Blizzard just made a new patch for their closed play sessions inside the coorperation. It is not certain if this will be the beta patch or it will mean we need to wait a lot more for beta since they just changed stuff.

    #4 angelcrest (Beta Patch 3388)

    Here are the changes that excited me the most in this patch:

    Jadefire Satyr was removed and replaced with Stranglethorn Tiger. Which means hunters can now have 2 stealth beasts.

    Dark Summoner was removed and replaced with Spiteful Smith that has an enrage which gives your weapon +2 attack. Another minion for the weapon decks how nice.

    Mana Addict was nerfed to +2 attack per spell. Shieldbearer was nerfed to have no enrage.

    Murloc decks have been buffed Murloc Tidecaller now increase it's attack on summon which makes the Murloc Scout count as well. Murloc Warleader is now +2 attack instead of +1 so druid murloc decks being op as fuck are now godly overpowered.

    Nat Pagle stats nerfed Lorewalker Cho stats buffed.

    Gelbin Mekkatorque is now damaged beyond repair. Apart from Homing Chicken all inventions can target your minions for their negative effects or enemy for positive effects.

    Wild Pyromancer now does 1 dmg to all minions including itself whenever you play a spell. It is no longer possible to get more then 2 ticks off him without heal. And also no way to deal dmg to the enemy hero with him either. On the bright side this would go extremely well with the new priest niche of increased health turns into dmg. PW:Shield it to get a lot more dmg off it. Or the warrior enrage decks that like to keep whirlwind will now have two new whirlwinds.

    Force of Nature cost increased to 6 and Claw and Bite became less attack for armor addition. Bite became cheaper so Svagery opness will still stand I think. But they will get armor on top of a board clear. How lovely.

    Explosive shot better aoe now and Freezing trap is definately worth it now.

    Turns out Darkspear Hunter was removed to make room for Savanah Hiighmane. Starving buzzard is now summon as expected which will work off of Snake Trap. Sword of Justice for paladins is also summon which was nessasery for hero power anyway.

    Fan of Knives now deals 1 dmg to all enemies and also draws you a card for 3 cost. Its basicly an aoe Shiv now with 2 extra cost. Also conceal is now 1 cost.

    Flame Imp is no longer stealth and Summoning Portal got increased cost now.

    The biggest changes were the priest ones. They literally removed 3 cards and gave them 3 new cards. The removed 3 cards effectively screwed my main and 2 alt priest decks while allowing one of my alt decks to be much more stronger possibly making it my new main deck.

    #3 angelcrest (Beta Patch 3388)

    Oh dear Death Wish was replaced with Shield Slam. This means I lost my game for nothing yesterday. The dude had 17 health, 19 armor, 2 cards in hand, no minions apart from Nat Pagle (!) on the board and already at 3 fatigue dmg while I had 6 cards in deck, 8 cards in hand and 5 minions on the board without taunt. I had 22 life; he Death Wished than Fiery War Axed me.
