A few weeks ago - back when the 3rd limited-time Mercenaries event was first released with Patch 23.2 - we thought we might have at least a month of time to spend with N'Zoth. But the Old Gods apparently wait for no one, with the Hearthstone team accelerating the release of the next major patch and already scheduling yet another set of special tasks to a week from now, this time with Y'shaarj at the forefront. 

So it's almost time to say goodbye to the current special adventure. Oddly enough, the event timers apparently haven't been fully synced across various timezones - even though it began everywhere concurrently and it's definitely not tied to regional server resets. It's worth noting that Europe only seems to have several hours left on the clock, while Americas still got half a day remaining. The developers have never clarified what this odd disparity is meant to be about, and we are unsure whether there is any timing error on either side. 

In any case, it's all coming to an end very soon. If you still have any special tasks remaining and last minute motivation is your thing, better get going! We've done our part to provide assistance with a number of detailed guides, courtesy of Avalon

What's more, within each respective task description you can also find valuable comments from our community members, providing various alternatives and useful observations. That's about as extensive as it gets. Best of luck if you are still trying to rush against the clock to complete at least a part of the event, if not its entirety! 

Did you manage to get through the event all the way, or maybe just settled on the first few tasks? How did it compare to the other two in terms of overall difficulty? Already looking forward to the next or could use a longer break? The Mercenaries mode clearly does not want us resting.
