Hearthstone‘s next growth spurt won’t introduce any new cards or deck slots, but it will answer a few of the more prevalent fan cries. Patch 2.7‘s grandest addition will be Tavern Brawl mode, an eclectic format that changes its rules on a weekly basis. Arriving mid-June, Tavern Brawl may require that you craft a deck under specific guidelines, or it may buff certain minion types–anything to spice up gameplay in a unique way.
Brawls will only be available for a few days each week–the innkeeper needs time to clean the inn between each one, after all–and will be playable with friends. The only potential blockade will be a “You must have a level 20 hero to play” sign out front, which is hardly a steep bar. Rewards for the game type have yet to be revealed, assuming there are any besides your standard gold payout. However, in celebration of the mode’s arrival, winning a match in the first several brawls will earn you a free card pack.
Following the recent reveal of alternate Warrior hero Magni Bronzebeard, Blizzard also revealed alternate heroes for the Mage and Hunter class. Rather, silhouettes of them. Word on the grapevine is that the alternate Mage will be Medivh, as seen in Mage class card Echo of Medivh. Hunters, meanwhile, will be getting Alleria Windrunner, sister of Legendary minion Sylvanas Windrunner. Of course, all heroes will inevitably receive at least one alternate portrait, complete with a new hero power animation and unique card back, which will go for $9.99 each.
Speaking of: Patch 2.7 will also introduce assignable card backs, allowing players to pair decks with designated designs. The card back collection will be moved to the Collection Manager; from there, players need only drag the desired card back to a deck’s slot. Never again will I frantically swap from Icecrown to Gnomes when I switch from Mage to Paladin.
