The 92nd Tavern Brawl is Encounter at the Crossroads. It is the fifth time this Brawl has been used, which puts it equal with Randomonium for most uses. This time around though, the Brawl has a fresh twist!

Encounter at the Crossroads and Randomonium are popular for a reason. They both require no investment from the player, they make sure that newer players have a chance, and they have enough skill to interest a large percentage of the player base. Although it can seem a bit tedious to seasoned players to keep having these Brawls, it makes sense to regularly give an easy Brawl to the more casual members of the player base.

The original Encounter at the Crossroads gave you a random deck based on which class you selected. This Brawl is apparently identical to usual at first, but there is a twist after a few turns. You are also rewarded with a Journey to Un'Goro pack, which says it can be opened in mid-April.

I was horribly disappointed to see this again... then I played it! That twist is a game changer and getting a future pack was a pleasant surprise too.

Blizz pls.

I hope the twist makes the brawl at least remotely interesting.

Update: I love me some hunter simulators.

How does bilzz make an average brawl crappy? Add a party crasher. Some how yet again they managed to screw up the tavern brawl for another week. sticking an uncontrollable mob into the game is not an improvement. The Hearthstone team really needs to think about making some replacements in their tavern brawl development team. Maybe hire a four year old at least they would try and be more creative than the people they have now. Fail.

At least when you when you get an Un' Goro pack. That is the only redeeming point this week.

As expected, no, it doesn't! Leave your brains at the door and just dump whatever class cards you need for your daily quest.

I honestly think this has been the worst brawl for a long time.  I feel that my skill has absolutely no impact on this game, it is over by turn 5 or 6, and if they get the better curve it is impossible to win.

Yep, not interesting, but at least its a fast way to complete your Quests

...and everything is better than the stupid Jade-Kazakus-Bully-Brawl two or three weeks ago...

You summed up CurveStone in it's current state perfectly. Brawl is only the result of that.

Usually who start second win because get the first Party Crasher summoned that usually can't be removed right away that will hit your face for long enough to die for first

Got inner fire and divine spirit in my opening hand as priest. Wait for party crasher to show up, create a 10/10 minion that bypasses taunts, and click end turn 3 times.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
