Hearthstone Battlegrounds Tier List (Heroes)

Hearthstone Battlegrounds is a brand new auto-battling mode within Hearthstone. It’s a new 8-player experience where you pick a hero and try and put together the most powerful board to defeat your enemies. Players are pit against each other in duels until one player reigns supreme.

There are a lot of heroes in this new game, so a good place to start might be learning each of the heroes and their special powers. Professional Hearthstone players have already put together their own tier lists, which can see below.

Hearthstone Battlegrounds Tier List

To determine the best heroes in Hearthstone Battlegrounds, we’re going to be using a list made by TidesofTime who is the current #1 ranked Hearthstone Battlegrounds player.

  • Best: A.F. Kay, Millificent Manastorm, The Curator
  • Very Good: The Rat King, Patchwerk, Nefarian
  • Good: The Lich King, King Mukla, Infinite Toki, Yogg-Saron, Dancin’ Deryl
  • Medium: Shudderwock, George The Fallen, Lich Baz’Hial, Bartendotron, Trade Prince Gallywix
  • Bad: Patches the Pirate, Pyramad, Queen Wagtoggle, Giantfin
  • Very Bad: Ragnaros, Professor Pesticide, Lord Jaraxxus, The Great Akazamzarak

Here’s another list from a top Hearthstone player named Savjz:

We can see that both players view A. F. Kay and The Curator as the top heroes. Overall both players place several heroes in the same tiers, so there is a bit of general consensus about which heroes are worth picking.

Keep in the mind the game has only been out for about a week, so there’s still a lot of testing to be done and constant changes being made to the game. These lists are subject to change at any time.
