Hearthstone Battlegrounds Patch Notes – What to Expect in the Latest Update
Hearthstone Battlegrounds is a popular game mode in the Hearthstone universe. It is an auto-battler game mode with a unique setup where players choose heroes, draft minions and battle against each other. This game mode has seen several changes over the years, with new features added, and old ones removed. In this article, we will take a closer look at the latest patch notes for Hearthstone Battlegrounds.
1. Hero Changes
One of the most significant changes in the latest update is the change in hero powers. Several heroes received buffs or nerfs to their hero powers.
For example, Illidan Stormrage’s hero power, Warglaives of Azzinoth, will now give +1/+1 to two random friendly minions instead of just one. Rafaam’s hero power, The Eye of C’Thun, now gives a minion +2/+2 instead of +1/+1.
On the nerf side, Bartendotron’s Tavern Shakeup now costs 1 gold instead of 0. Galakrond’s Greed now costs 2 gold instead of 1.
2. Minion Pool Changes
In addition to hero power changes, the minion pool has also seen some additions and deletions. Several minions have been removed from the pool, including Steward of Time, Champion of Y’Shaarj, and Tormented Ritualist.
On the other hand, new minions have been added to the pool. Some notable new additions include Amalgadon, a 6-cost elemental that gains all minion types when it is summoned, and Monstrous Macaw, a 1-cost beast that gives a random friendly minion the Deathrattle: “Summon a random minion of the same Tavern Tier.”
3. Balance Changes
As with any game update, balance changes are also expected. The latest update is no exception. Several changes have been made to balance out the gameplay.
For example, the cost of the minion Mama Bear has been increased from 5 to 6 gold. Additionally, the attack and health of several minions have been adjusted. For instance, Cave Hydra’s attack was reduced from 3 to 2, but its health increased from 2 to 4. With these changes, players can expect a more balanced gameplay experience.
4. Bug Fixes
Apart from the changes mentioned above, numerous bug fixes were also made in the latest update. Some long-standing bugs that caused gameplay issues have been fixed, providing a better experience for players. These bug fixes include the incorrect placement of minion positions on game boards, hero powers not activating correctly and incorrect minion attack triggers.
With these patch notes, we can expect a significant change in the meta of Hearthstone Battlegrounds. As always, the changes will take some time to settle. Players will need to experiment with different strategies and keeping track of the latest trends. With the constant evolution of the game mode, it is essential to stay updated with new patch releases and balance changes. So, put on your thinking cap and prepare for an exciting new season of Hearthstone Battlegrounds!
