Mistress of Pain and Auchenai Soulpriest Combo to be No More!

Mistress of Pain and Auchenai Soulpriest Combo to be No More!

Thanks to a post this afternoon from Keganbe of the Hearthstone Community team, we're learning that Auchenai Soulpriest will not be wreaking havoc on heroes anymore thanks to some upcoming changes in Knights of the Frozen Throne; It will only trigger once with the Lifesteal mechanic!

In addition to this change, two cards will be changed to instead have Lifesteal on their wording. These cards are the aforementioned Mistress of Pain and the relatively new Wickerflame Burnbristle.

Quote from Keganbe


In Knights of the Frozen Throne, we’re introducing a new keyword, Lifesteal, that summarizes the previously existing card text “damage dealt by this also heals your hero”. We’re looking forward to showing off more new cards with the Lifesteal keyword in the coming weeks.

Two cards currently exist with the Lifesteal ability in their text box:  Wickerflame Burnbristle and Mistress of Pain.

In Knights of the Frozen Throne, we’ll be updating their card text to say “Lifesteal” rather than their current “damage dealt by this minion also heals your hero” text. You can check out what that will look like by clicking the links above!

Stop Hitting Yourself

Auchenai Soulpriest and Mistress of Pain have had a very interesting relationship. Their current interaction results in a continuous loop of healing and damage that results in a rather grisly end to the current game. In Knights of the Frozen Throne, we will be changing the interaction between Auchenai Soulpriest and all minions with Lifesteal so that the Auchenai Soulpriest ability will only trigger once.

We hope you are looking forward to our next chilling expansion!
