Hearthstone Patch 23.4.3

The latest changes to Hearthstone are a lot of big Standard balance changes. This is said to accomplish a few separate goals. “First, we want to lower the power level of the most powerful decks in the current metagame - Fel Demon Hunter and Control Warrior variants. Roughly half of the changes in this patch are balance-motivated and intended to target the win-rates of these decks directly.”

The rest of the changes in patch 23.4.3 were made with a focus on improving the play-against experiences for some of the more polarizing cards in the game.

The cards that have been reduced this patch are as follows: Shield Shatter, Tidal Revenant, Nellie’s Pirate Ship, From the Depths, Caria Felsoul, Battleworn Vanguard, Wildpaw Gnoll, Lightforged Cariel, Spitelash Siren, Earthen Scales, Lightning Bloom, Mr. Smite, and School Teacher.

Again, these changes to Charge Warrior and Control Warrior had been over performing for some time, and the changes were made to create a lower winrate for both archetypes. The same can be said for Demon Hunter, who has also been a standout win-rate class since the release.

Hero power updates were also given to the following: Onyxia Broodmother - Broodmother, Ozumat - Tentacular, Pyramid - Brick by Brick, and Tamsin Roame - Fragrant Phylactery.

If players would like to learn more about the few changes made to Minions, or Mercenaries, please check out the official patch notes on Hearthstone’s site.

Note: Activision Blizzard is still under investigation by the state of California for serious harassment charges. CEO Bobby Kotick is alleged to have known about such actions within his company – and performed some himself – and shielded the perpetrators from consequences.
