hearthstone murder a castle nathriaBlizzard Entertainment

Hearthstone update 24.0.3 patch notes are the first changes for the Murder at Castle Nathria expansion and include buffs to Warrior and Demon Hunter and tone down the power levels of Warlock and Hunter.

Murder at Castle Nathria has been out for over two weeks now, and Hearthstone players have quickly discovered which decks and archetypes are working and which are not.

The two classes that have enjoyed the most success so far are Warlock, with Imp-focused decks, and Hunter, with their new Wildseed cards that summon strong dormant minions.

Now, Blizzard has targeted these two classes with the expansion’s first update and has brought buffs to classes that have been struggling like Demon Hunter and Warrior.
