Changing Acts and losing hireling levels? I only recently started playing Diablo II. I have made it through the first 2 acts (I just sailed out from Lut Gholien). On a lark I decided to go back to revisit the old haunts in Act I, so I sailed back to LG, then caravaned back to the Rogue Encampment. Along the course of my adventures to date, I kept the same mercenary I originally hired. (level 7 when I hired her, out of the Rogue Encampment) Over the course of my adventuring I reached level 22 and she reached level 18. When I went back to Act I to kick around a bit and see if I'd missed anything, she (my mercenary) was suddenly level 12! Anyone else seen this? Likewise, anyone have a suggestion for fixing this problem? (I don't think I have a copied save from before I went back, so I can't restore from that.) Thanks in advance for the help!
