Hearthstone’s 16.0.5 balance update targets Shaman, set to go live tomorrow

The long-awaited post-Descent of Dragons balance update is finally dropping tomorrow, Blizzard Entertainment announced today. The 16.0.5 update will included nerfs to several Shaman cards and will introduce a few changes to Hearthstone’s Battlegrounds game mode.

After Descent of Dragons launched last week, Shaman boasted the highest win rate in the game. Both Overload and Quest Shaman dominated in the game’s previous expansion, Saviors of Uldum, leading many fans to frustration after the new dragon-themed expansion seemingly failed to provide an answer to the overpowered class.
