Hearthstone Wildfest Guide - Start and End Date, New Wild Arena, New Tavern Brawls - Everything we Know

Here's everything you need to know about Hearthstone's Wildfest event, including the start and end dates, as well as all the brand new Tavern Brawls you can undertake.

The brand new Wildfest event has arrived in Hearthstone, and in this Hearthstone Wildfest guide we’ll be detailing everything you need to know about the limited time event. Read on for details on Wildfest, including when it starts and ends, as well as all the new Tavern Brawls you can partake in.

Since the Wildfest event hasn’t kicked off in Hearthstone right now, make sure to keep an eye on this guide, as we’ll be updating it with any additional information that Blizzard releases over the coming weeks, as well as any changes that they make to the upcoming event.

Hearthstone Wildfest Start and End Dates

The Hearthstone Wildfest event has now started and run until March 11, giving you three full weeks to take down the new Tavern Brawls, which we’ll cover just a little further down.

The Arena is changing up slightly at the start of the Wildfest event on February 19 - all existing Arena runs will be wiped clean off the board at the beginning of the Wildfest event. Blizzard has said that Hearthstone will give you a warning before all the existing Arena runs are cancelled, but we don’t yet know when this advance warning will be given.

Hearthstone New Wildfest Tavern Brawl Events

Over the course of the Hearthstone Wildfest event, there’ll be two brand new Tavern Brawls for you to take on: Venture Into the Wild, and The Wild Brawliseum.

The first of these, Venture Into the Wild, is designed to any Hearthstone player can immediately jump into the action. All you have to do is select a class when you head into the Venture Into the Wild Brawl, and you’ll be given a Wild deck that’s ready to go. Blizzard hasn’t revealed any of the decks that will be featured for each class in the Brawl, so you’ll have to delve into the Brawl itself to find out which cards you’ve got to work with.

The second of these Brawls, the Wild Brawliseum, is a Brawl designed for competitive-level Hearthstone players. The Wild Brawliseum lets you take in a deck that you’ve built up yourself, using cards from every Hearthstone expansion to date, but you’re locked into using that specific deck for the duration of the Wild Brawliseum run. There’s unfortunately an entry fee for the Wild Brawliseum, coming in the form of either Gold or real world money, so you can’t just jump into the limited Brawl whenever you want, unlike the more casual Venture Into the Wild Brawl

Finally, you’ll only finish the Wild Brawliseum once you either hit 12 wins or 3 losses, whichever comes first. The rewards might be the same as they are in the Hearthstone Arena, but your first Wild Brawliseum run is entirely free.

This is all the concrete information that we have on the Wildfest event for Hearthstone right now. Keep an eye on this guide though, as we’ll be updating it with any relevant information in the future.
