Mercenaries Twitch Drops

Watch Hearthstone on Twitch to earn two free Mercenary packs!

Quote From Blizzard

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!
