Changes coming to how the game is played, based on user feedback. The game still is in beta, after all.
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft will be getting some fundamental game changes in an upcoming beta patch -- you know, the one that is supposed to wipe all accounts and force players to start again from scratch. The good news is that players will be able to earn gold quicker this time around.
In a post on the official blog, Blizzard revealed that many of the changes were because of fan feedback, which is a good thing since that is what beta testing is for. Perhaps the most significant change is a revamp to the "overpowered" Rogue class. (Isn't that always a complaint?) According to Blizzard, "Rogues will have some key spells and minions adjusted to bring them more in line with the other classes. Warriors and Priests will find themselves with new tools and improved cards to round out their arsenal, and we've made some adjustments to the other classes here and there as well."
Also being changed is the way players gather gold in play mode. Instead of five gold for five wins, it will become 10 gold for three wins.
Other modifications include:
- Experience can be gained in all play modes, including practice, with the level cap at 60.
- Arena wins will get less dust and more gold and cards.
- The crafting UI has been revamped to be more user friendly.
- Daily quests requiring you to win with a specific class will now give you two classes to choose from for more flexibility.
Blizzard promises to make the full patch notes available as soon as they are compiled. There is no word yet on when the patch and accompanying account wipe will be happening.
