Today, Blizzard announced that they’d be implementing some Arena changes for Hearthstone in an effort to improve the overall player experience.
Once patch 10.4 goes live, each pick from the arena draft will be of roughly the same power, regardless of rarity. Instead of being given 3 epic cards that all suck, players will instead receive (hopefully) three cards that are all good, rarity be damned. Of course, there’s always the chance that players will receive a common, rare, and epic card, all of poor quality.
Picks one, 10, 20 & 30 will continue to have rare or better cards. When 104. goes live, the increased chance to see cards from the most recent expansion will be temporarily disabled.
Most interesting, though, limited new cards! Back during Blizzcon, the community all voted on one new card for each class, specifically for arena. Those cards will now be going live.
