Flame and shadow take a hit in a new balance patch


“The flame… extinguished.”

– Artellus Numeon

The Dropsite Massacre expansion is now fully released and all three new Legions have finally joined the battle. Despite the mid-month balance update toning down some of their more prominent cards, the Salamanders are still bringing too much heat to the battlefield. The Raven Guard and their ambush tactics have also proven to be a bit too effective, so we’re making some adjustments to their best performing warriors.

This month’s balance patch focuses on toning down newcomers Raven Guard, while further adjusting the Salamanders card pool. Check out all the changes below:

Branne Nev: Change description to ‘After attacking an enemy troop, give it Sentenced 1 this turn’ (instead of any enemy)
Champion Vorkyl: Lower damage from Ambush from 4 to 3
Mordaris Squad: Lower Health from 4 to 3
Vigilator Aajz: Lower Health from 5 to 4
Sergeant Rhyke: Lower stats from 6/4 to 5/3
Unseen Strike: Increase cost from 2 to 3

Numeon: Change Sacrifice ability to ‘Give +1/+1 to adjacent troops.’ (instead of all your troops)
Legionary Dha’lok: Lower Rally damage from 1-2 to 1
Legionary O’Nadir: Lower passive damage from 2 to 1-2
Ashblazed Javelin: Lower Attack from 4 to 3
Guiding Light: Lower Health from 5 to 4
Ancient Tuseok: Change description to ‘Rally: Draw a Vehicle from your deck and lower its cost by 1’ (instead of 2)
Dragon’s Breath: Increase cost from 3 to 4

These changes are already in the game! Log in and conquer the battlefield to claim your rightful place as this month’s Warmaster!
