Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft will see a handful of 11th-hour changes before the game launches, including some card tweaks and more. Blizzard has since outlined the updates.

Eurogamer reports that just two cards will be re-balanced: Tinkmaster Overspark and Nat Pagle.

Tinkmaster’s stats will raise from 2/2 to 3/3, and will get revised card text describing its Battlecry ability. The move is capable of transforming a random minion into a 5/5 Devilsaur or 1/1 Squirrel, but naturally you’d want the former if the skill lands on your side.

Meanwhile; Nat Pagle’s draw card ability now occurs at the start of your turn, rather than the end. You now have a 50% chance of drawing a new card.

Blizzard will also see to it that high-level Ranked players will not be fully reset after each monthly session ends, which will stop newcomers being match-made against veterans, because that’s simply not fun.

It’s still unclear when Hearthstone will leave beta status, but we’ll update you once we know more.
