Hearthstone’s latest game mode – Mercenaries – has just launched! In order to celebrate, Blizzard is giving away a bunch of card packs. Here’s how you can get them:
- Log-in Bonus – Get 2 packs just for logging in after downloading the patch. After you complete the first part of the Mercenaries tutorial, 2 free packs will be waiting for you.
- Legendary Quest Chain – Players will get a Legendary Quest Chain, rewarding 6 Mercenaries Packs in total.
- Twitch Drops – Watch any Hearthstone stream between October 15 at 10 AM PT (19:00 CEST) and October 17 at 10 PM PT (which is October 18, 7:00 CEST) for 2 hours to get a free Mercenaries pack. Watch for two more (four in total) for a 2nd pack. Be sure to connect your Twitch and Battle.net accounts first, though!
Between all of that, you can start with 10 Mercenaries Card Packs for free. With a guaranteed Mercenary in each pack, that’s 10 more characters you can choose from to start with (on top of the 8 you get for free during tutorial).
You will also get more packs by completing further steps of the tutorial, be sure to check your Campfire (Task Board)!
Freebies, Twitch Drops, and Log in Bonuses!
Complete the Mercenaries tutorial and introductory missions and get eight free Mercenaries to start your journey. That’s more than enough to form your first Party and start chasing Bounties! You will also get login rewards and access to a Legendary Quest chain that will award a total of six free Mercenaries Packs!
But that’s not all! Twitch Drops are back to celebrate the launch of Mercenaries! Watch 2 hours of any Hearthstone stream between 10 a.m. October 15 and 10 p.m. October 17 and you’ll earn a free Mercenaries Pack! Watch two more hours (four total) to earn another! Remember, every Mercenaries Pack comes with at least one new Mercenary until you’ve collected all Mercenaries from that rarity tier, so your collection will grow quickly with those first packs!
