All the eyes are turned towards the next expansion of Hearthstone, Scholomance Academy, but Patch 17.6 isn't only bringing massive card balance changes for our favorite CCG — it's also implementing several big changes for Battlegrounds.
Tess Greymane is entering Bob's Tavern alongside two returning heroes: King Mukla and Dinotamer Brann. In the process, a new tier six minion was also added to the pool while Goldrinn underwent a quite heavy nerf...
