The Balance Patch Releases Next Week - September 18

The Balance Patch Releases Next Week - September 18

We're going to be seeing the five recently announced card nerfs hit next Monday!

Quote from Daxxarri

In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:

  • Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
  • Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2)
  • Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
  • Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)
  • Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)

This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund.
