Hearthstone: After a Year, What Got Nerfed?

July – Patch 1.1

Eaglehorn Bow

Team 5 left the cards untouched for over two months before putting another in their sights: Eaglehorn Bow. On July 22, 2014 the Curse of Naxxramas adventure was released, and with it a minuscule tweak that had rather large consequences. One word was added to the Hunter’s only weapon:

"“Eaglehorn Bow now reads ‘Whenever a friendly Secret is revealed, gain +1 Durability’.”"

Before this change, a Hunter could get additional uses out of his weapon when facing the two other classes that had secrets available to them. The simple alteration in card text allowed other classes to fair a little better against the almighty Hunter. But even after two changes to the class’s cards the Hunter was still going strong…maybe too strong.
