In Clicker Heroes, the newly added mercenaries have a chance to die on each mission they're assigned. Resurrecting them costs rubies, the amount of which is based on the level of the mercenary.

I have a set of 5 level 1-5 mercenaries, and even though I try to pick missions that reward rubies as often as possible, it feels like a huge ruby sink.

Do mercenaries ever get self-sufficient for rubies as you level them up?

The answer is No.

They can be temporarily self-sufficient, but once they reach a high enough level, the ruby cost to revive them grows much faster than their expected income per life.

See here for some guidelines on when it is or isn't worth reviving mercs.

  • know the feels man. My fabled merc (+24 Demigod) died today and not even my transcended merc for 2000% rubies could save him :(
