    Hey guys,

    I decided to change my hireling from Act 2 Offensive (might) to Act 2 Defensive (defiance). Thing is I went back to normal to recruit one but his stats were far inferior to my current one. Then I moved to Hell and his stats were vastly superior to Normal's hireling but still a bit lower than my current one.

    If I am not mistaken, normal hirelings were supposed to have the best stats?

    The normal one should have better stats at the same level as the hell one. The ones you see in normal are probably a much lower level. Once he levels up to your level, it should be the same stats as you're used to.

    That wasn't the case. The hireling I wanted to recruit was only a level below but his stats were far inferior to mine. Hell hirelings were still a level below but with much better stats. :/

    That's strange. You playing 1.13d?
    Which stats in particular were better?
    Are you sure it wasn't because of some gear you had on that added STR, etc?

    So you haven't tried hiring one of the those mercernaries and then looking at their stats? Or tried looking at a Nightmare Offensive one from Griez and comparing?

    I did a quick search to try and find particulars about how the display is off and came up empty, but it seems pretty clear the stats that show up from Griez (and probably from the other merc vendors) are just wrong. Hire the Normal merc, and if his stats aren't 1790life, 1317 defense, 188 strength and 152 dex at level 84 and 1830, 1345, 190, 154 respectively at level 85 then you have encountered a problem. If you're also so inclined you can check the Hell merc's stats, which should be: 1590, 1175, 180, 144 at level 84 and 1630, 1203, 182, 146 at level 85 in terms of life, defense, strength, dexterity.

    That said, I don't really know why you want to switch from a might merc to a defiance one, but more power to you.

    Hmm, truth to be said, I relied on the display stats. I didn't recruit any hireling because of that. Let me check it now.

    Seems like you were right. The stats were displaying wrong at the list. Everything's ok now :)

    Thanks!

    It's one of my goals to complete each character with their set items and this char is an IK Baba. Since those set items are weak they are mostly experimental chars for me.

    Perhaps it's useless to have such high armor but it's still funny to see such a number on Hireling. He surpasses my armor even when I hit with concentrate!
    I don't expect him to become any close to a powerful char thus I try to differentiate him and try something unusual. He is not a char I will be using much. I followed the concentration build which is kind of boring! I just wanted him to complete the IK set.

    What if you put gear on him (no Immortal King, something else)? Will he still be shiny?

    Not quite sure. After Save and Exit he wasn't glowing anymore.
    He was still wearing the ik though but he wasn't able to use it due to low Stats. I am pretty sure if I tried to swap an item he would stop glowing.
