It’s just been over a month since the new Mercenaries Mode was introduced to Hearthstone. Since then, a lot has happened, and more has arrived with Patch 22.0. We get to meet four new mercenaries and new bounties.

The Mercenaries Mode arrived sometime in October 2021 and offered everyone a new way to play Hearthstone. It had players assemble parties with mercenaries and then take down bounties. Read more about that here.

Of the four new heroes, three join the game at the same time as Patch 22.0. The mercenaries and their abilities are:

  • Valeera Sanguinar (Legendary Fighter)
    • Sinister Strike 5: (Speed 3) Gain +10 Attack this turn and Attack the lowest Health enemy. Combo: Gain Stealth.
    • Ambush 5: (Speed 6) Deal 10 damage. If this Mercs was Stealthed, deal 25 instead.
    • Fan of Knives 5: (Speed 7) Deal 7 damage to all enemies. Your other Mercs are (3) Speed faster next turn.
  • Sky Admiral Rogers (Epic Caster)
    • Sky Guard 5: (Speed 5) Gain +5 Attack and Attack an enemy. If it’s a Pirate, gain Immune while Attacking this turn.
    • Master Tactician 5: (Speed 2, Cooldown 1) Deal 12 damage to an enemy, or restore 12 Health to an ally. It goes next.
    • Firing Position 5: (Speed 6, Cooldown 1) Deal 20 damage to all enemies that have already acted.
  • Trigore the Lasher (Rare Protector)
    • Frenzied Attack 5: (Speed 7) Attack an enemy. If this took damage this turn, deal 12 damage to a random adjacent enemy.
    • Backlash 5: (Speed 1) The next time an enemy damages an adjacent ally this turn, Gain +5 Attack and deal this Merc’s Attack damage to them.
    • Regrow Heads 5: (Speed 4, Cooldown 1) This takes Critical Damage this turn. At the end of next turn, restore this Merc to full Health.

The last one is Vanessa VanCleef, who will join the game when the new expansion Fractured in Alterac Valley releases on December 7. Her abilities are:

  • Burgle Barrage 5: (Speed 7) Attack an enemy. Combo: Steal 5 Attack from them.
