Many have viewed Quest Rogue as a problem, Blizzard is now doing something about it.

Blizzard has announced that The Caverns Below will be receiving a nerf in an upcoming balance change. Quest Rogue has been viewed as a problem to many in the Hearthstone community and the developer will be making it just a little harder to complete. Soon the card will require five minions with the same name up from four. The announcement can be found below.

In addition, Game Director Ben Brode and Principle Game Designer Mike Donais will be hosting a livestreamed Q&A session on Friday, June 30 at 10:30 AM PDT. They plan on taking questions about Journey to Un'Goro and the upcoming balance changes.

In an upcoming update, we will be making a balance change to the Rogue card: The Caverns Below

The Caverns Below now reads: Quest: Play five minions with the same name. Reward: Crystal Core. 

Since the release of Journey to Un'Goro, Hearthstone has enjoyed a wider variety of competitively viable classes and decks than ever before. We’ve been monitoring overall gameplay, and we’ve decided that—even though everything is varied and many decks are viable—a change to The Caverns Below is still warranted.

The Caverns Below is uniquely powerful versus several slower, control-oriented decks and played often enough that it’s pushing those decks out of play. This change should help expand the deck options available to players both now and after the release of the next expansion.
