- Battlegrounds Finishers are equipped globally, so whenever you win a round of combat, your equipped Finisher will be used. At the end of any round of combat, both players will be able to see the winning player’s Finisher.
The new update also includes new Mercenaries in Hearthstone including:
- Long’xin (Legendary Caster)
- Xuen (Epic Fighter)
- Niuzao (Rare Protector)
- Yu’lon (Rare Protector)
- Chi-Ji (Epic Caster)
Beginning from 15th February, players can acquire Long’xin, Xuen, Niuzao, and Yu-lon through the game’s normal method of acquiring a Mercenary. Beginning from 22nd February until 8th March, players must complete a chain of 10 event Tasks in order to earn the Epic Chi-Ji Mercenary Card and other rewards.
