Re: How about steerable minions?
I totally agree. That the merc is so dumb really annoys me. One curse and you are back to town. Just tell him to not attack is enough. That way, mobs might still attack him but he won't kill himself with IM.The thing is I really want something like this for mercs too. How many times have you had to tp back to town to revive your merc cause you couldn't tell him to stand down when he got hit by iron maiden. Is there really a point to that? It just slows down the gameplay. I don't think it's unreasonable to think a character would call out to their mercenary and tell them to stand down or give other types of orders like that. I don't think we should go too far into micromanaging but a few simple commands would be nice.
