Blizzard released an update into Hearthstone earlier this week as players can now experience the solo adventure, Trial By Felfire. The adventure came out as part of the 17.4 Patch that came out on Wednesday, which added a bunch of new content including new cards, updates to Battlegrounds, and a few other tweaks and bug fixes. You can check some of the updates below and you can play the adventure right now.
Battlegrounds Shifting Minion Pools
At the start of each game of Battlegrounds, five of the six currently available minion types (Beasts, Demons, Dragons, Mechs, Murlocs, and now Pirates) will form the recruitment pool for that game. The active minion types will be displayed while you're selecting a Hero—you can also check anytime during the Recruit phase by hovering over Bartender Bob's deck. To keep things fair, Heroes designed with synergies around a specific minion types will sit out if their corresponding minion type is unavailable. Pirates will always be available in the minion pool until they join the rest of the shifting minion pool in a future update.
