We've got a brand new event in Hearthstone's Mercenaries game mode and it's here only for a limited-time! This time, we'll venture into many dangerous Bounty zones with the aid of Yogg-Saron, fan favorite for its Constructed shenanigans and the third Old God that has come to pay us a visit.

Our journey won't be in search of just fame and success, but you'll be able to complete a set of 10 event Tasks, which will reward you coins for Yogg-Saron and many other goodies.

Here are all the tasks that are available during the Yogg-Saron Mercenaries event. Click any of the links below to visit our guide for the task.

  1. No Halftime
    • Requirement: Complete Plaguemaw the Rotting Bounty with only 3 mercs.
    • Reward: 75 Yogg-Saron coins.

  10. One To Rule All
    • Requirement: Heal and Deal 50 damage in one battle using Yogg-Saron.
    • Reward: Diamond Yogg-Saron portrait.

As you can see, these tasks are quite the mixed bag: while some are fairly simple to complete, others require more than a bit of thinking (and luck: that one's always welcome) and planning ahead.

Moreover, certain tasks clearly state that you need Comps consisting of Mercenaries belonging to specific races in order for your progresses to count: while the Y'Shaarj event was about Humans and Pirates, this time you'll need the help of Naga and Night Elves!

Not all challenges might be as difficult as they seem at a glance: there are usually tips and tricks to be found to make everyone's lives easier. In this series of guides we'll take a look at how to complete each event Task, so that you'll be able to get your hands on all the rewards available. As of now, we'll focus our attention on the current task.

In case you missed them, if you click the banner below you'll have access to each of our task guides for this event.


How to Complete the "Perfectly Calculated" Task from the Yogg-Saron Event

  • Requirement: Use Yogg-Saron's Oh My Yogg ability and win a fight.
  • Game Mode: Not specified - Normal will suffice.
  • Rewards: Golden Yogg-Saron portrait (random).
  • Difficulty: 1/5

Perfectly Calculated is the first task of this event that asks you to actually make use of Yogg-Saron. In particular, you'll have to win a fight thanks Oh My Yogg 1's shenanigans.

There are a few preliminary information you should be aware of. First of all, Oh My Yogg 1 chooses random abilities and casts them at random targets: if you increase this ability's level you will be able to trigger multiple abilities, therefore increasing your chances to complete Perfectly Calculated. However, such thing is not strictly required: for example, Avalon was able to get the job done on the first try with just a level 2 skill.

Secondly, there's the cooldown. As you might already know, Oh My Yogg 1 has a whopping total of 15-turns cooldown, making it the slowest ability in the entire game mode so far. You can neutralize such disadvantage in two ways:

On a final note, Perfectly Calculated does not say that it has to be completed in PvE: if you're gutsy enough, you can even bring Yogg-Saron in PvP and see how it goes!


Out of Cards Recommendation - Cookie Comp

No need to make things harder than needed: play Yogg-Saron together with Cookie, the Cook in order to gain as much time as you need for Oh My Yogg 1 to be available; the third unit in the comp is kind of a flex spot:

  • You can include either Blink Fox, Y'Shaarj or N'Zoth in order to make Oh My Yogg 1 available faster.
  • Given that Oh My Yogg 1 will be available eventually, you can pick a unit with 3 damaging abilities to maximize the chances to win the game with a random ability being cast.

We decided to go for the second path, including Scabbs Cutterbutter - cheap and full of damage abilities.

To prove this comp of being fit for this task, we actually recorded a video showing you that you can pull this off with ease.
