Beware the Old God.

If you think you have what it takes to face an Old God, then be ready for the latest limited-time event happening in Hearthstone. In this one, the influence of Old God N’Zoth has managed to seep into Mercenaries. This event arrives in the game courtesy of Patch 23.2

The limited-time event covers 10 Special Tasks focused on N’Zoth. Two new event Tasks unlock on each of the first five days of the event. However, you need to complete all 10 Tasks before Patch 23.4 goes live.

Finishing all 10 Tasks rewards players with:

  • Base N’Zoth Mercenary
  • A random Golden N’Zoth Portrait
  • N’Zoth Diamond Portrait
  • More than 750 total Mercenaries Coins

By the way, Toki is returning to her regularly scheduled daily Tasks the day after completing the 10 event Tasks.

As a tip, N’Zoth’s whispers have long driven a lot of mercs to madness. To complete the event, you’ll not just need your wits, but also the strongest Humans, Dwarves, Elves, and Murlocs.
