Hearthstone’s Hallows End event is in full swing and to mark this spooky occasion, “The Headless Horseman Rides” makes a return to the Tavern Brawl, having featured in halloween festivities last year too.

This week’s Tavern Brawl keeps things nice and simple. All you have to do is enter the tavern, pick a unique card and the game will magically construct a deck for you. The tough part is facing the Headless Horseman himself...

As you’ve probably gathered, this is a one vs one, PVE brawl against a legendary halloween boss. To take him on, you’ll need a special collection of cards, so on your first turn you’ll discover a 0-cost “costume” that transforms your hand and deck, granting you a new passive hero power as well.

Here’s a brief breakdown of all the hero powers and their respective decks:

  • Witch Costume: Taunt and Spell-themed deck with Witchcraft.
  • Pirate Costume: Pirate-themed deck with Conscript.
  • Cat Costume: Beast-themed deck with Sense Weakness.

The encounter bears a great resemblance to the Headless Horseman bossfight in WoW, so those familiar with Blizzard’s MMO should have an idea of the challenge in store. For those heading into the fray for the first time - try not to lose your heads.
