Quilboar Join Battlegrounds & Battle-Ready Decks

Written by Contributor

April 29, 2021

There are two major pieces of news for Hearthstone! The first is details on the next major Battlegrounds update: Quilboar! The Quilboar update will include the new Quilboar minion type, 17 new minions, 3 new heroes, and a new mechanic: Blood Gems!

Blood Gems are spells that give a friendly minion +1/+1. Some Quilboar give you Blood Gems, while others have special interactions when Blood Gems are played.

There will still be five minion types per Battlegrounds game once Quilboar are added, meaning that three minion types will be excluded from each game. Just like when Dragons, Pirates, and Elementals were added, Quilboar will show up in every Battlegrounds match until our next major content patch.

The full details of the Quilboar update will be shared in the 20.2 patch notes, tomorrow.

Introducing Battle-Ready Decks

Battle-Ready Decks allow for anyone to jumpstart their Collection and hit the ground running in constructed modes.

For the first time ever, Blizzard be offering curated decks optimized for the most recent expansion through the web and in-game shops! When these Battle-Ready Decks become available, you’ll be able to add a complete deck from the class of your choice to your permanent Collection. Each Battle-Ready Deck is handcrafted using data captured across hundreds of thousands of play sessions to ensure you’re taking home a combat-worthy list! Battle-Ready Decks will be available for purchase for a limited time for $19.99 and will be limited to one per account.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why can’t I buy a Battle-Ready Deck when the expansion launches?

We want to make sure we preserve the exploration phase of each expansion when everyone is trying out new and interesting things. We won’t be offering Battle-Ready Decks right after an expansion launches because the meta always needs time to settle at first, and we need time to analyze the resulting data to determine which decks we should offer.

Why can I only buy one? Will more Battle-Ready Decks become available for the next expansion?

We’re trying this limited run now to gauge community interest before we decide how expansive this should be.

How long will Battle-Ready Decks be available after they start showing up in the shop?

A Battle-Ready Deck will be purchasable for two weeks after it’s been listed on the shop.

What happens if I buy a Battle-Ready Deck but I already have most of the cards?

You’ll get those cards again as duplicates, which you can choose to disenchant if you’d like.

There are Core Set cards in these decks, will I get those cards again?

If you already have the Core Set cards in a Battle-Ready deck, you will not receive them again. If you don’t, purchasing a deck will automatically level its associated class to 10, unlocking all the Core set cards in the deck list.

What happens if cards in my Battle-Ready Deck are nerfed?

We always do our best to plan around potential balance changes. As such, we’re not expecting to nerf any of the cards offered in Battle-Ready Decks at this time, but we will extend the usual full dust refund to any eligible impacted cards if it happens.

I did not have an open deck slot when I purchased my Battle-Ready Deck, where is it?

It’s possible you may not see the Battle-Ready Deck in your deck list if you did not have an open deck slot when you chose your Battle-Ready Deck. If this happens, don’t worry! You will still receive all the cards from that deck. If you would like to delete one of your existing decks, you can then navigate back to this page and use our deck list. From here, you can copy the deck code to automatically assemble the deck in Hearthstone.
