Tavern Brawls are a game mode which will pit a player head to head versus another player using exciting and unique rules each week. One week might feature preset decks, while another week could have players crafting a brand new Tavern Brawl deck following specific guidelines, while others might offer buffs to specific minion types.

Tavern Brawl can be found below the Play, Solo Adventures, and the Arena buttons on the main Hearthstone screen. Tavern Brawl is unlocked once a player has a single level 20 hero.

Friends Edit

While it’s fun to get into Tavern Brawls with strangers, players may also brawl with friends. To start a Tavern Brawl with a friend, enter the Tavern Brawl menu, open the Friends List, and push the ‘Challenge’ button next to a friend’s name. After they accept, press the Brawl Friend button and let the battle begin!

Heroic Tavern Brawl Edit

Heroic Tavern Brawl

Heroic Tavern Brawl will challenge even Hearthstone’s most experienced players as they vie for glory and in-game rewards. Participants create a Standard deck from their existing card pool and lock it in before their first Heroic Brawl match. No changes can be made to the Heroic Brawl deck once they're locked in.

Players will be pitted against other Heroic Brawlers; players want to shoot for 12 wins to get the best rewards, but if they get three losses, they’re out. Heroic Brawl lasts for only one normal Tavern Brawl week and has an entry fee of $9.99 USD or 1,000 gold.

Rewards Edit

For Hearthstone’s best brawlers, 50 packs, a heap of Gold, piles of Arcane Dust, and three golden Legendaries sit at the end of the 12-win rainbow. The rewards are significantly different than what is expected in the Arena, and the more games won, the better they get.
