Upcoming Hearthstone Arena Hotfixes for Thursday, April 19
A round of hotfixes are incoming to Hearthstone this Thursday and focus on the Arena experience. Changes to card buckets, appearance rates by rarity, and below average card appearance rates.
Quote from Jesse Hill
In an upcoming hotfix currently targeted for release on Thursday, April 19 (PDT), we will be making the following changes to the Arena:
- Adjusted the buckets for certain cards so that they appear alongside cards of a similar power level, mostly from The Witchwood and Kobolds and Catacombs.
- Lowered the appearance rate of Rare cards slightly and raised the appearance rate of Basic/Common cards slightly. Epic and Legendary cards should appear at the same rate.
- Very slightly raised the appearance rate of below average cards.
These changes should adjust the overall power level of Arena so that it feels like the choices players are making in their drafting decisions are more meaningful.
Our goal is to continue making improvements to the Arena as needed and communicate these changes to our players as they are implemented.
Thank you for your continued feedback.
