PSA: This patch contains the nerfs to Small-Time Buccaneer and Spirit Claws, but NOT the “Hall of Fame” changes to some classic cards.
A patch was just pushed out to Hearthstone that contains within it the changes to Arena we got a peek at the other week, some nerfs to some particularly frustrating cards, and preparations for the upcoming “Year of The Mammoth”.
As a PSA, this patch does not contain the “Hall of Fame” changes that will move Azure Drake, Sylvanas Windrunner, Ragnaros the Firelord, Power Overwhelming, Ice Lance and Conceal from Standard to the Wild format.
With this patch, the Arena game mode has switched from Wild format to Standard, and the distribution of cards has been altered significantly, putting more rares, epics, and legendaries in Arena decks.
Data-miners at Hearthpwn have also discovered that the lead up to Journey to Un’goro will also feature “daily log-in rewards”, that you’ll get just for logging in every day. The are as follows:
- Day 1: 50 Gold
- Day 2: 1 Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Pack
- Day 3: 100 Arcane Dust
- Day 4: 1 Old Gods Pack
- Day 5: 1 Journey to Un’Goro Pack
- Day 6: 50 Gold
- Day 7: 1 Journey to Un’Goro Pack
- Day 8 – Day 14: 50 Gold
Here are the full patch notes.
