- Ben Brode starts talk about some possible Arena changes?
- “Arena Balance is one thing that has received a lot of attention recently, and has spawned a lot of discussion internally. We had plans for tools that would let us make changes in the medium-long term, but the online discussion has made us stop and rethink our timelines and options. That’s honestly great. Hoping to have something to share on this in a couple weeks.”

Trivia – strings the code in the game revealed that there was a third boss that was being experimented with in this battle, possibly the titanic watcher known as the Maiden of Virtue (another raid boss from the original Karazhan). However no actual data or cards are in the files. When asked about his Ben Brode said “we experimented with many versions of that fight”.

Had a new HS experience saturday. Ever played Hearthstone during a 5.6 earthquake? The cats ran for cover but I finished off that warlock. Had a bunch of stuff fall off shelves. Did any of you feel it?
