Battleground Season 6 Releases December 5

by - 8 months ago

Patch 28.2 is going to drop in less than a week and with it will be the release of Battlegrounds Season 6. Season 6 will remove the anomalies we all know (and love/hate) today and will bring the introduction to spells in the tavern. There will be 42 new spells in battlegrounds across all tiers and will be purchasable in the tavern. Each tavern will consist of 1 spell along with the normal amount of minions you get today.

This will release on December 5, 2023 and reveal season starts tomorrow with a preview event on December 4 complete with Season Pass giveaways.

New Mechanic: Spells in the Tavern

Magic flows like water in the Spellslinger’s Saloon, where Spells can now be purchased directly from the Tavern! Spells have Tavern Tiers just like minions do, but, unlike minions, they also have variable costs! Spells have their own card frame while in the Tavern, displaying both the Cost and Tavern Tier.

42 new spells will be added in Patch 28.2, across all six Tavern Tiers! Each time you Refresh the Tavern, it will include a spell of your Tier or lower on top of your normal number of minion offerings for your Tier. Just like existing spells in Battlegrounds (like Blood Gems and Triple Rewards), spells can’t be tripled and are spent once you play them. Sling your spells wisely!


New Minions with New Synergies

The Spellslingers Saloon is bustling with 32 all new minions! Some of these thirsty patrons have special synergies with spells.

The Undead minion type also continues to explore the power of death—including destroying minions during the Recruit phase! Use these effects for immediate bursts of power and warband updates that last from turn to turn.


Days of Exciting Reveals

In addition to the 32 new minions, and 42 new spells, 3 new heroes will be entering the fray! We’re also bringing back 5 returning minions and removing 33 existing minions to make room for all these new recruits. Reveals start RIGHT NOW, culminating in a special preview event the day before the patch goes live!
