In addition to the much-requested multi-friend Battlegrounds lobbies, the format will get some fresh heroes and minion changes as well in Patch 18.2.
Three Scholomance "professors" will be joining the fray: Lord Barov, Jandice Barov, and Forest Warden Omu. These heroes will be officially released on September 22, but players with Battlegrounds perks will have early access to them, as accustomed.
- Friendly Wager [Cost 1]
- Guess which player will win their next combat. If they win, get three Coins.
- Swap, Lock, & Shop It [Cost 0]
- Swap a friendly non-golden minion with a random one in Bob’s Tavern.
Forest Warden Omu
- Everbloom [Passive]
- After you upgrade Bob’s Tavern, gain 2 Gold this turn only.
One new minion will be added: Micro Mummy! It will essentially replace Mecharoo, which will be removed with the patch.
Additionally, Pack Leader will get a small nerf where both its own Attack and the Attack buff it gives will be changed from 3 to 2.
