Blizzard Entertainment has released Sarge’s Tale, Harth Stonebrew’s loveable mousey sidekick from Hearthstone®. This new in-game mount is only currently available for customers who complete the Hearthstone Mercenaries prologue and begin one new Bounty of their own. Once completed you will be rewarded with the Sarge’s tale epic mount in World of Warcraft®.
“Hold on a sec, Sarge isn’t that large, someone must have spun a tall tale in the Hearthstone Tavern…“
This mount is available to all eligible characters on your account. Eligible characters must have reached Level 10 and have the Apprentice Riding skill.
There appears to be some confusion over whether Sarge is a mouse or a rat, but Blizzard describes him as Harth’s loveable mousey sidekick, so I’m going with mouse! You can check out the animations of this new mount below.
This is a short video showing the unboxing of the in-game WoW mount Sarge’s Tale.
