Patch 184.108.40.20628 for Hearthstone is now live, and its biggest change to the game is a slight reduction -- which sounds kinder and gentler than "nerf" -- in the power of the Undertaker, a 1/2 one-cost minion that formerly got +1/+1 every time you played a minion with Deathrattle. With the patch, the Undertaker just gains +1 power, making him still relatively easy to remove. As explained in the patch notes:
"Undertaker was frustrating to play against. It often gained both attack and health stats significantly above those of other inexpensive minions very early in the game. With this change, we expect Undertaker will still be better than other 1-mana minions when played in a deck with a Deathrattle theme, but more likely to die from combat with other minions."
Also, for those poor souls who bought 60 packs of the basic cards right after Goblins & Gnomes went live, the pack-buying interface now requires you to choose what kind of packs you want to buy, rather than defaulting to the base set.
There are a few other minor bug fixes and tweaks, such as heroes saying "Happy New Year" instead of "Hello." Whether this is really to celebrate the Lunar New Year, as the patch notes say, or because Blizzard didn't have time to get it into the game at the start of January but still wanted to use it... well, your guess is as good as mine.
