Hearthstone Patch Notes – 2.7.0.9166 – Tavern Brawl, New Heroes, and Customization

Blizzard Entertainment launched the three new purchaseable hero portraits: Medivh, Alleria and King Magni. In addition, the Tavern Brawl feature’s schedule has been announced.

In this Hearthstone patch, we’re introducing Tavern Brawl: a whole new way to play that changes every week!

Patch 2.7 also adds the ability to purchase new heroes for your Warrior, Hunter, and Mage decks. On top of that, you’ll now be able to customize each of your decks with its own card back.

The patch also includes two new card backs, as well as some bug fixes.

Read on for the full notes!


NEW FEATURES

  • Introducing Tavern Brawl! Each week, a different Tavern Brawl will pit you head to head versus another player using exciting and unique rules. One week might feature preset decks, while another week could have you crafting a brand new Tavern Brawl deck following specific guidelines, while others might offer buffs to specific minion types. The possibilities are endless! Tavern Brawl unlocks for players who have at least one Hero at level 20.
