Blizzard revealed what changes are coming when the Rise of the Mech event for Hearthstone arrives on June 3 and runs until July 1. Players who are able to log in during the event get the chance to earn a golden copy of the game's upcoming neutral Legendary Mech named SN1P-SN4P.

Players who miss the event can still get this mech by crafting a normal version for 1600 Dust. According to the developer's notes, SN1P-SN4P is considered part of the The Boomsday Project and rotates with that set. This card is not included in The Boomsday Project card packs.

The biggest news for this update, however, is the card changes that are to be implemented. Not only are the changes permanent, but cards get to keep their updated stats after The Boomsday Project rotates out of Standard next year.

For this update, two cards from The Boomsday Project from each class are to be taken and given some power boost. The goal for these changes, according to the design team, is to encourage players to think differently when it comes to how they are building their decks. The team added that they are "hoping that some of these cards will see consistent play in the current rotation, and even inspire completely new decks without having a lasting negative impact on their respective classes."

The card changes are:

  • Druid
    • Gloop Sprayer to (7) Mana. (Down from 8)
    • Mulchmuncher to (9) Mana. (Down from 10)
  • Hunter
    • Necromechanic to (4) Mana. (Down from 5)
    • Flark's Boom-Zooka to (7) Mana. (Down from 8)
  • Mage
    • Unexpected Results to (3) Mana. (Down from 4)
    • Luna’s Pocket Galaxy to (5) Mana. (Down from 7)
  • Paladin
    • Crystology to (1) Mana. (Down from 2)
    • Glowstone Technician to (5) Mana. (Down from 6)
  • Priest
    • Extra Arms to (2) Mana. (Down from 3)
    • Cloning Device to (1) Mana. (Down from 2)
  • Rogue
    • Pogo-Hopper to (1) Mana. (Down from 2)
    • Violet Haze to (2) Mana. (Down from 3)
  • Shaman
    • The Storm Bringer to (6) Mana. (Down from 7)
    • Thunderhead to 3/6 (Up from 3/5)
  • Warlock
    • Spirit Bomb to (1) Mana. (Down from 2)
    • Dr. Morrigan to (6) Mana. (Down from 8)
  • Warrior
    • Security Rover to 2/6 stats. (Up from 2/5)
    • Beryllium Nullifier to 4/8 stats. (Up from 3/8)
