Tavern Tales: Hearthstone Battlegrounds Podcast

Dec 20, 2019

The landscape of Battlegrounds is about to change with the latest balance patch bringing an end to the nightmare amalgam in the minion pool. Totemlydrunk and Edanar are here to break down Patch 16.0.5 that adjusts a few minion tiers and makes a hero swap in/out of the rotation. Expect some heavy experimentation in your games ahead.

As always we would love to hear your feedback. Feel free to shoot us a message via email, discord, or twitter. Thanks again for tuning in!
