On a final note on Hearthstone Battlegrounds, the 24.4 patch also brings a new cosmetic: Legendary Boards. This new kind of cosmetic is a dynamic experience since it alters between six different visuals depending on your Health, position, win streak and other variables.
The first of these Legendary Battlegrounds Boards will not go live with the 24.4 Hearthstone patch but on October 11th. This will be days before the next Lobby Legends event if you know what that means.
Arena rotates with Hearthstone miniset launch
The 24.4 patch will also affect Arena, Hearthstone's oldest game mode. When the Maw and Disorder Hearthstone Miniset goes live, the Arena will see its seasonal rotation. The sets that will be part of Arena will be:
- Blackrock Mountain
- Kobolds & Catacombs
- Ashes of Outland
- Journey to Un'goro
- Rise of Shadows
