When Hearthstone's 19.4 patch is released on January 21 with the launch of the new mini-set, The Darkmoon Races, the Arena will be swapping over to a new rotation! This rotation will include:

  • Darkmoon Races Mini-Set
  • Madness at the Darkmoon Faire
  • Scholomance Academy
  • Ashes of Outland
  • Demon Hunter Initiate
  • The Boomsday Project
  • Journey to Un'Goro
  • One Night in Karazhan
  • Basic
  • Classic

"Free" Tavern Ticket

Since the new rotation will not only add new sets but also remove some, we should expect a free Tavern Ticket for our unfinished Arena runs. As per usual, start an Arena run, leave it at X wins and a maximum of 2 losses and get a reward equal to the amount of wins you left the run with, plus a Tavern Ticket when your run gets retired with the rotation.

With the introduction of Duels in Madness at the Darkmoon Faire, Arena Ticket changed to a Tavern Ticket that can be redeemed for entry to either game mode, giving you more options on how to spend it. There will happen a separate Duels rotation, so it stands to reason we should get a Tavern Ticket for an unfinished Heroic Duels run as well. I will test that myself, to see if that will hold true. Feel free to join me, who has spare 150 g, or plays Duels regularly.

Don't forget that Arena entries close a few hours prior to the expansion launch based on your server time, Duels will most likely follow suit. So chop-chop!

The Tavern Ticket!

/Edit: Heroic Duels did not receive a reset. No Tavern Ticket for an unfinished Heroic Duel at the time of Darkmoon Races launch :(
