Info on Upcoming Descent of Dragons Balance Changes

Upcoming Balance Changes

Players have shown that Shaman is too strong in the current meta. The Hearthstone Team answered fast and said that a Balance Update will arrive within the next week, adjustments for Descent of Dragons, including some changes aimed at Shaman.

HQ Galakrond, the Tempest
HQ Faceless Corruptor

Out of the 10 most played Cards for Descent of Dragons we see 8 in Shaman:

  • Faceless Corruptor
  • Kronx Dragonhoof
  • Devoted Manic
  • Shield of Galakrond
  • Galakrond, the Tempest
  • Corrupt Elementalist
  • Invocation of Frost
  • Dragon’s Pack

Almost 90% of Shaman Decks play Galakrond, making it obvious that the Deck need to be nerfed. We are not sure if the invoke cards will be nerfed or Galakrond, a change for his hero power and the Battlecry when played are our first guesses.

The other new Card we think might get a nerf is Faceless Corruptor. The card is currently the most played and is in about 50% of the Decks.

Not to forget, there is also a chance that cards from older expansion get nerfed, for example Sludge Slurper.

Hey Folks,

Just to give a heads up – we’re working on a balance update that will arrive within the next week with card adjustments for Descent of Dragons, including some changes aimed at Shaman. Any cards that are affected will be given full Arcane Dust refunds.

Stay tuned for more details next week.

Cheers,
The Hearthstone Team
