A small update for Artifact Beta 2.0 went live recently which made a few gameplay changes. The recent update also updated Card text for two cards. Artifact's UI was also slightly tweaked and two bugs were fixed.

The Dragon Knight Card stats are changed to 3/5. Claszureme Hourglass is changed to 15g with two cooldowns, and the active ability of the card has been completely removed. The Artifact AI will make quicker actions in the campaign matches and you will need to damage a unit to target it by Necrophos’ Reaper's Scythe.

The Card Text for ‘Grazing Shot’ and ‘Plans Within Plans’ are now more clarified and some crash issues related to Fractured Timeline and Round Start effects are resolved.

The complete patch notes of the update are mentioned below and on the official site.
