  • 55. Tavern Brawl: Review/Preview Edition

    02:03:22
    The premier community event in all of Realms Rising is the Tavern Brawl and in this episode of Sparks and Recreation, the crew reviews a recent IRL Tavern Brawl event while also previewing the upcoming digital Tavern Brawl. Filtrophobe and DblDubz are joined by Tuff and BirdLaw to break it all down including the lore, formats, and even strategy surrounding team composition under the new rules. They also give some early thoughts on level 22 Arena testing and the most recent Alchemist changes. Be sure to stick around for the Community Round-up where Across the Realms is discussed. Note: In the show, it was said that all three core sets of Star Realms are required to participate in Across the Realms. We’d like to make the correction that the minimum requirement is the Vanilla core set of Star Realms.
