Mercenary level bug?

My poison/summon necromancer started in 1.10 has exactly the same level as the might mercenary I hired way back in Nightmare when I was level 43. I haven't got a screenshot with me to prove this (if someone can tell me how this would help, I do use ATMA). We are both on level 76 and the mercenaries' experience is fixed at 2 million below his next exp threshold.:confused:

That is exactly normal. A merc does not gain exp until you are a level ahead of him, he'll never get past ya in the lvl race. When you hit lvl 77, then he'll start gaining again.

I read somewhere that the mercenary's level was always one less than your character's level. Is that wrong info? (Another way of saying, is a level 99 mercenary possible)

merc can be same lvl. but no higher so yes u can get lvl 99 mercs
I am almost sure that is incorrect. Something about how at 99 you are no longer gaining exp, and neither will your merc. Hence, stuck at lvl 98. I know I read this on these here forums at some point recently.,..

That's right. Once you hit 99 you no longer get any exp at all so your merc gets none either so, even though he is no longer capped at 98, he can never get to 99.
