Interesting merc bug

I guess we all know about the merc bug which prevents auras from e.g. a weapon to come into effect after they have been resurrected. Re-equipping the weapon will activate it again. However, there's another, similar bug.

Equip the merc with e.g. a weapon which adds an aura and an armor. Tha aura is active. Now remove the armor and equip it again. For some reason, the aura from the weapon is off then ! Re-equipping the weapon turns it on again. I guess that's why it also happens after a resurrection - the armor is re-equipped and due to a bug, it switches off the arua from the weapon.

I noticed this some time ago already and perhaps I'm blind, but I never read anything about it here so far :scratch:

Good find!

Makes you wonder just HOW Blizzard managed to do that.

sometimes when i change my gear to switch, the aura on switch doesnt work. sometimes it works after several seconds, sometimes minutes.
i notice my switch is supported by strength bug, and i guess that might be the reason.

Re: Interesting merc bug

is your armour holding up the weapon?
I noticed it in conjunction with a thresher which the merc can wear on his own.

Auras work respectively get activated in pulses, i.e. once every 0-3 seconds the game checks what has to be done with respect to them.
