Balancing the caverns.
An upcoming balance change to Hearthstone will update a popular card slightly.
The quest card called “The Caverns Below” will receive a slight revision. The description previously read: ” Quest: Play four minions with the same name. Reward: Crystal Core.” It will now say “Quest: Play five minions with the same name. Reward: Crystal Core.” This change is being implemented to make it more difficult to obtain the crystal core. A crystal core, when collected, makes all of your minions summoned have values of 5/5.
The Hearthstone community manager took to the official forums to detail the update, saying:
“Since the release of Journey to Un’Goro, Hearthstone has enjoyed a wider variety of competitively viable classes and decks than ever before. We’ve been monitoring overall gameplay, and we’ve decided that—even though everything is varied and many decks are viable—a change to The Caverns Below is still warranted.
The Caverns Below is uniquely powerful versus several slower, control-oriented decks and played often enough that it’s pushing those decks out of play. This change should help expand the deck options available to players both now and after the release of the next expansion.
Note: The Caverns Below will be eligible to be disenchanted for its full Arcane Dust value for a limited time after the next Hearthstone patch arrives.”
