This guide is part of our larger Battlegrounds Guide.
Hearthstone Battlegrounds Hero Tier List
Each Hero in Hearthstone Battlegrounds comes with their unique Hero Power to use within the game, but the minion pool available remains consistent for all Heroes, which leads to a situation where some Heroes are better than others. This guide separates all Heroes into tiers given their strength in the current balance patch. This information should be used as a guideline, as strength of Heroes has some small variance based on a player's personal preferences.
S Tier: Excellent
S Tier Heroes are the top tier Heroes in the game. They have consistently strong Hero Powers that will greatly boost your chance to win. These Heroes can be picked whenever available, without question.
|Arch-Villain Rafaam||I'll Take That|
A Tier: Great
Tier A Heroes have solid Hero Powers that you will get some good use out of during the game. However, the Hero Powers are not as strong as S Tier Heroes or are only used for part of the game.
|Dancin' Deryl||Hat Trick|
|Edwin VanCleef||Sharpen Blades|
|Yogg-Saron, Hope's End||Puzzle Box|
|Alexstrasza||Queen of Dragons|
|Elise Starseeker||Lead Explorer|
B Tier: Good
Tier B Heroes have Hero Powers that will offer some use throughout the game. Their Hero Powers typically have solid one-use effects or will offer a very minor bonus throughout the game.
C Tier: Average
C Tier Heroes have Hero Powers that will only have a minor impact on your game. It is not uncommon to only use their Hero Powers a couple of times per game, and sometimes not at all.
|Lich Baz'hial||Graveyard Shift|
|George the Fallen|
|Professor Putricide||Rage Potion|
|The Great Akazamzarak||Prestidigitation|
D Tier: Bad
Tier D Heroes are the worst of the worst. They have Hero Powers that are very underwhelming and it is generally better to invest your gold on improving your board rather than using their Hero Power.
|Queen Wagtoggle||Wax Warband|
|Patchwerk||All Patched Up|
|Pyramad||Brick by Brick|
