Hearthstone has released its latest patch in preparation of its new expansion, Whispers of the Old Gods, which will come out on April 26. This patch mostly features some changes to cards from the basic set so they can be played in the new format called standard. Standard is a Hearthstone format where only cards from the latest set will be legal. Don’t worry though as your older cards will still have value as a format with all the cards ever made, called Wild, will still be available.
The card changes are the following:
- Ancient of Lore – Now draws 1 card instead of 2
- Force of Nature – Mana cost decreased from 6 to 5, Treants no longer have Charge and no longer die at the end of the turn
- Keeper of the Grove – Health reduced from 4 to 2
- Ironbeak Owl – Mana cost increased from 2 to 3
- Big Game Hunter – Mana cost increased from 3 to 5
- Hunter’s Mark – Mana cost increased from 0 to 1
- Blade Flurry – Mana cost increased from 2 to 4 and only affects Minions
- Knife Juggler – Attack reduced from 3 to 2
- Leper Gnome – Attack reduced from 2 to 1
- Arcane Golem – Health increased from 2 to 4, no longer has Charge
- Molten Giant – Mana cost increased from 20 to 25
- Master of Disguise – Stealth granted by this card now only lasts until the start of the next turn
With the changes for these cards players will be able to turn them into dust for their full value, which is a good opportunity to start saving dust to craft cards from the upcoming expansion.
