Book of Mercenaries is a single-player game mode first released on April 6, 2021.

It uses a classic linear adventure format with an appearance similar to Dungeon Run screen. Like Book of Heroes, Book of Mercenaries is about telling the journeys and stories, but the main characters are mercenaries, who were first introduced in Forged in the Barrens as legendary cards and unique to Hearthstone.

Like Book of Heroes, Book of Mercenaries will feature a chapter for each of the ten current classes, for a total of 80 missions or bosses. It is completely free to play and available to everyone. Additionally, completing a class's story rewards the player a corresponding class pack.

Warrior was the first class and Rokara's story was the first story to be introduced. New missions will be released over the course of the coming months.
