Shop Interface Changes

There's been some image additions that are labelled as being a part of the store. StoreMain_ChooseBackgroundWood, and Arrow_ChoosePack. Looks like this may be the end of accidentally buying the wrong pack, as it's going to ask you which packs you want to buy on purchase.

Undertaker Nerfed

Undertaker has been nerfed. Undertaker now only gains +1 Attack rather than +1 Attack and +1 Health. See the post from Zeriyah explaining this change below.

Quote from Zeriyah

Undertaker was frustrating to play against. It often gained both Attack and Health stats significantly above those of other inexpensive minions very early in the game. With this change, we expect Undertaker will still be better than other 1-Mana minions when played in a deck with a Deathrattle theme, but more likely to die in combat against other minions.

The golden version of Undertaker can be disenchanted for its full cost for a limited time once this balance change goes live.

We will continue to make balance changes to Hearthstone when we feel they are necessary in order to increase the variety of cards seen at all levels of play, with the goal of making Hearthstone a more fun and interactive game for everyone.


New Card Back: Maraad (January 2015)

The Maraad card back is now officially in the client. This is the reward for January 2015's ranked gameplay season.
