Let’s to know our guests a little better!

Tavern Brawl - Spiders, Spiders, Spiders Everywhere (Grant’s Least favorite brawl ever)
Hallow’s End Returns!
Hallow’s End begins October 17 and lasts through October 31.
Get a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card just for logging in during the event!
There’ll be decorations and special Hallow’s End emotes.
Special Dual Class Arena
The Headless Horseman returns to Tavern Brawl, and friendly foes from the Monster Hunt join us for a new Tavern Brawl!
Hallow’s End marks the arrival of a friendly new Paladin Hero who will be available for purchase as a part of a special deal!
New Player Ranks
For newcomers to the Hearthstone Tavern, we added New Player Ranks to ease you into the fray.
New Ranks from Rank 50 to 26 for new players only.
New players can earn a total of 22 free packs just by ranking up in New Player Ranks, so it’s a great time to introduce a friend to Hearthstone!
Earn 3 free Classic card packs by reaching milestones at Rank 45, 40, 35, and 30. Upon graduating up to Rank 25, earn 2 Classic card packs, and 2 packs each of the most recent four Hearthstone expansions.
There’s no loss of stars for losing a match while in New Player Ranks.
New Player Ranks earn end of season rewards (the same rewards as reaching Rank 25).
Players can skip the New Player Ranks (but they’ll miss out on milestone card pack rewards!)
New players will can unlock Wild Format and Casual mode by reaching Rank 25. As before, Tavern Brawls unlock after achieving Level 20 with any Class.
Welcome Bundle Refresh
This roaring deal includes 10 Classic card packs, and one of six Legendary dragons from the Classic set (instead of a random Class legendary).
Even if you purchased a Welcome Bundle in the past, you can still purchase this one!

"Draw!" Draw 20 cards. Reward: 50 gold.
