We've got some huge updates coming to Battleground's newest tribe, Quilboar! The tribe came into Hearthstone Battlegrounds recently with a huge, overpowered disruption to the meta and Blizzard has agreed that they needed to tone back the tribe quite a bit. Here are all the changes coming to the newest minions.
Two of the largest changes come from Bonker and Charlga:
- Bonker has lost 1 attack and when golden, now only gives you 1 Blood Gem per swing attack, down from 2.
- Charlga no longer buffs itself and has lost 3/3 in stats, now a 4/4 instead of a 7/7.
These, among the rest of the changes down below, should give the other tribes some breathing room from the onslaught of the Quilboar.
Don't forget to tune in to Twitch today for the Battlegrounds Brawl event where you can earn 2 Forged in the Barrens packs for watching!
- Barrens Blacksmith will be removed from the minion pool.
