Hearthstone Battlegrounds Patch 17.6 introduces Tess Greymane!

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...
