17.2.1 Balance Update is now Live!

While there was a slight delay compared to the usual release time, the patch is now out. Just like always, keep in mind that patch might be released a bit (usually up to a few hours) later on mobile. After people playtest new decks, we’ll be adding them to this post (as well as posting them on social media, like we usually do).

Here’s the list of all balance changes:

All of the nerfed cards can be disenchanted for their full cost until June 1.

While balance changes are the main point of this patch, we’re also getting an important bug fix. Ethereal Conjurer will no longer lock players out of the game. Some players have exploited this bug to force a draw when they could no longer win the game.

We hope that you will enjoy the patch!

    Is there a command to search by in the collection manager that will display only recently modified cards?
    Any quick way to sort out all of the nerfed cards to ensure I’ve dusted them all?

      I don’t believe there is, but I’ve heard that people were asking about it for a while now. So we might get it in 5 years or so 😀

    Will we see some changes to Rogue Tier? I hope not.
    I just spend dusts equivalent to 3 Legendary cards.
    Hanar, Togwaggle, and Flik.

    Always happen like this.. Now I don’t think I will disenchant Hanar just because of the nerf.

      Hard to say, I think that Galakrond Rogue will still be good. Now the question is whether Stealth package won’t become better than Secret package. We’ll probably see in a few days 🙂
