Hearthstone Is Throwing A Masquerade Ball Event

Hearthstone will be throwing a special event starting September 29th, as players will be able to attend the Scholomance Masquerade Ball. Blizzard cordially invites you to a special spooky ball where nothing is as it seems. Well, we're all wearing masks, so that's as far as that goes. However, The Tavern will undergo a makeover for the Masquerade Ball limited-time event. There will be weekly challenges with the chance to unlock new content including Tavern Brawls, the return of Dual-Class Arena, and a new Hearthstone Book of Heroes. We have the shorthand version from the devs below, or you can read the full blog here.

Starting September 29, players will be able to recruit and wield the awesome power of Elementals in Battlegrounds! This Battlegrounds update will bring four new Heroes, 16 new minions, a new progression system, and a ratings reset.

Dual-Class Arena Returns (September 29)

All players will be given one free Arena ticket to celebrate the return of Dual-Class Arena! In the Masquerade Ball's Dual-Class Arena, you'll choose a Hero before choosing a Hero Power from a different class. Card offerings will be from both classes in addition to neutral cards. Mix and match for unique combos in Hearthstone but be warned: Dual-Class Arena is only playable during the Masquerade Ball event!
