Hearthstone Patch 21.6: Deadmines, the United in Stormwind Miniset, has finally arrived. Everyone, get in here.


Deadmines Miniset will arrive on November 2nd. The 21.6 Hearshstone patch will bring 35 unique cards, new Mercenaries, new Battlegrounds Heroes, and much more!

Deadmines Miniset is finally here to refresh the Hearthstone standard meta after the last expansion United in Stormwind and will be live on November 2 with the 21.6 Patch. The 35 new cards intend to shake the established strategies to support some archetypes as well as to create new ones.

On top of the Deadmines Miniset, Hearthstone Patch 21.6 will bring brand new Mercenaries, New Bounties, and Battlegrounds Updates. Join me in this journey deep into the Deadmines to discover what Hearthstone has to offer in the 21.6 Patch.

Deadmines: United in Stormwinds Miniset

Deadmines, the expected Hearthstone Miniset, will be live on November 2nd with Patch 21.6. This expansion update brings 35 new unique cards featuring Pirates and new Tradeable synergies. Hearthstone players will be able to open the new Deadmines Miniset cards in United in Stormwind packs, or they can buy the whole bundle at once. The entire 66-card Hearthstone Deadmines Miniset will cost $14.99 or 2000 Gold (pirates don’t settle for silver).

The Miniset will include 4 new Legendary cards -did I see Edwin Van Cleef in there?-, 1 Epic card, 14 Rares, and 16 Common. The Miniset is here, who will dare to dive into the Deadmines to claim Hearthstone’s most fierce pirates loot?

Deadmines Miniset cards will be revealed this weekend on Hearthstone’s official website. Check their Twitter and Instagram accounts, some cards are already out there.

Deamines Miniset has more: New Mercenaries on board!

Hearthstone Mercenaries is getting its first content update with Patch 21.6. On top of Deadmines Miniset, more Mercenaries will disembark in Hearthstone. Five new Mercenaries will become part of the Village, including Edwin, Defias Kingpin; Sneed; Eudora; Mr. Smite; and Cookie, the Cook.

Similar to how Deadmines Miniset cards are added to their expansion’s existing packs, the new Mercenary Cards, Portraits, and Coins can be obtained through Hearthstone Mercenary Packs. But wait, there is more.

The 21.6 Hearthstone Patch will bring three new bounties to Mercenaries. Highlord Omokk, General Drakkisath, and Rend Blackhand will be added to the Blackrock Zone on November 2nd.

But wait, there is More: Dues, Arena, and Battleground Heroes!

As we mentioned in the Hallow’s End announcement, Diablo is coming to Hearthstone Battlegrounds with the 21.6 Patch. Watch out, he is not coming alone. Sneed will make its appearance in Bob’s tavern, alongside Cookie the Cook to spice things up a bit.

Players who have purchased Hearthstone Battleground Perks will have early access to Sneed and Cookie the Cook with patch 21.6. These two new Heroes will be formally released on November 16.

Alongside the Deadmines Miniset and the Battlegrounds Update, Duels will also receive updates. The limited Diablo dual-class character, combining powerful Warlock and Warrior card pools and effects will go live with the Hearthstone 21.6 Patch. Moreover, many treasures, hero powers, and other balance changes will take place on November 2nd.

When the Deadmines Mini-Set unlocks on November 2, the Arena rotation will happen. On top of that, November 2 also marks the start of the Hallow’s End Dual-Class Arena event. Pick a class’s costumed portrait, then pick another class’s hero power, and build a deck from a combination of the two! If you are a fan of Duels or Arena, make sure to check the blog for all the details.

That is all for now, but stay tuned to Esports.gg for more Hearhtsone news and updates. I will see you in the tavern if I manage to skip scrubbing the floors.
