Many of you already proved yourself victorious over dozens of Mercenaries and successfully claimed the prize for fighting your way to the top. Are you ready to defend your title? Good! Two more tiers have been added to the Mercenary Ladder, which will reward you with new benefits worthy of a demigod…if you can conquer them!
