How to get your very own Sarge

Master Mercenaries
Before a Mercenaries run begins, you will be prompted to assemble a team of mercenaries from your collection. Your mercenaries will grow stronger as they gain experience and collect loot from battles. As you play, you can upgrade their abilities to unlock their true potential!

Mercenaries features a fast-paced combat system that rewards cunning and anticipation. Before each fight, players will select mercenaries from their team to participate in battle. Each turn, they’ll pick their team’s actions simultaneously with their opponents and watch the results of the fight play out.

Players will face a new selection of randomly generated encounters every time they start a Mercenaries run, earning in-game achievements and rewards to bolster their team as they battle their way to the final boss. And in PvP mode, players will be able to pit their mercenary teams against other players!

    If I was playing WoW I’d play Mercs just for the mount, but since I quit for lack of content I’ll stick to Battlegrounds, because they’re more enjoyable and there’s not a massive paywall.

    Mount is sweet. Tutorial only takes like 10 minutes or so.

    As for the game mode, it just so basic, slow and boring.
    And to be perfectly honest, I can't fathom why they would hype up such a bland, bare bone game mode.
    On top of all that, it seems like it's a pretty horrendous grind to F2P.

    I'm sticking to Battlegrounds.

    There's not much reason to play this new game mode when there are games like Slay the Spire and Tainted Grail.

    • Accidentally getting the setthek raven mount in wod on my first attempt
    • The care put into the legion hall mounts
    • The launch mount from hearthstone which was now like 7 years ago. Average mount but still an occaision
    • Fey dragon that my ex gifted to me is still a neat reminder
    • The gnomish mounts I grinded rep for (runecloth farm) out on my dwarf in vanilla, which are now luckily account wide so all my dwarves can use it
    • all the work I put in to get the gyrocopter in BC, then to finally get the turbo one in legion
    • the water skimmer _everyone_ used for two expansions
    • the simple yak /because its a yak
    • the chaos runner stag thing and the twelve minutes spent in argus
    • the purplish bear they added in WOTLK? that was a welfare ZA/Blizzcon bear which I used for my second main
    • all the fish/turtles for mostly spawning at the wrong time a/la wobbofet
    • rams
    • the far too large gronn mounts and camping for hours in WoD
    • having a reason to do LFR weekly to try to get the gmod
    • the gold making and experience of making the kinda awful but still neat hovercraft
    • the polished/evolutionary gnomish aesthetic of the rustbolt striders
    • the mechacrab striders from rustbolt
    • the crab that walks sideways
    • the original netherrays and the skyguard rep
    • all the small (failed) attempts to get the TLPD by accident
    • finding out you're like two achievements away from an old raid mount, so you go do that for a bit
    • a reason to form a small group to run old dungeons for mounts
    • finally getting a bronze drake in WoTLK
    • the goblin shredder lineups in towns
    • the mechacycle / wod mechacycles
    • the mount that's literally just a wheel
    Nice memories. My best one concerning a mount is a group of us riding Sea Turtles (which are slower on land) from Ogri to Firelands. Took a very long time but it was super fun back in Cata.

    Probably 10-20min, depending on how quickly you get through the tutorials. It's only a couple of games.

    Cool, another ground mount....2021 and yet my ground mounts still can't fly because....????
  1. kamuimac's Avatar
    tried this a little and jezus ..... its pure rng garbage

    why its garbage ? because coins you get for your mercenaries are 100 % random - meaning you can spend 10 minutes clearing bounty and then getcoins for people you will never use or dont plan to use not for team that you are building .

    pure joke

    hillarius who though its a good idea - and its such pure p2w .

    got mount for wow so dont care anymore.

    Because having mounts that clearly can't fly also fly would be silly. And we can't have that in the super serious grimdark game that is WoW /s

Those arguments went right out the window when everyone was handed there own Ashbringer.
    Why exactly would you expect things like boars, wolves, rats, tigers, mammoths, etc to fly?
