    Act 2 Merc w/ No Aura?

    This has happened to me on a couple of occasions and I can't find any information about it.. I hire an Act 2 mercenary, but never get an aura. Ever, even after the merc has been in major combat.

    Amazon hired a normal offensive (blessed aim, right?) merc *twice* thinking it was a bug the first time. No aura!

    Another amazon hires a nightmare defensive merc (holy freeze, right?) and there's no indication that he has any cold abilities at all. Gah!

    Has this happened to anyone else? Am I high, or just doing something wrong?

    Thanks for the help!

    If you're low level, the merc will be too - some abilities won't appear until a certain level.

    Otherwise, it's just a matter of patience and letting the merc do his own thing.

    It took awhile with my act 2 nm merc to get his arua ( I too thought he was broke). And sometimes now at lvl 45 he still takes awhile to get his butt in gear, but he does eventually give an aura. :scratch:

    It just takes it awhile to activate. All A2 mercs have an aura that will come on eventually, regardless of merc lvl.

    I had this problem with my first act 2 merc on ladder. I finally just gave up and bought a new one. The new one seems to work fine out of the box. Guess the first guy was DOA.

    I think the merc has to kill a certain number of monsters first.
    Either that or if you jus be with him for a bit the aura will activate.
