Upcoming Balance Change: The Caverns Below

Play Mode Discussion

In an upcoming update, we will be making a balance change to the Rogue card: The Caverns Below.

The Caverns Below now reads: Quest: Play five minions with the same name. Reward: Crystal Core.

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.

And it took only 3 months.
This is very sad:( and in good blizzard tradition they make the card completely unplayable instead.
when will we be able to get dust back?

Dear god thank you, now I don't have to feel that sickly feeling in the pit of my stomach whenever I see a rogue in ranked.....as much....

Honestly though, it seems like upping it by 1 might not be enough, but hey, it's still better than 4.

Plot twist: 5 bounces, but 6/6s
Awesome, I'm cashing in on that one. Are you sure that's the only change you're making?
