Mercs & Bootstrapping Strength Bug? We all know that player characters can "bootstrap" an item that has +str by putting on other items that boost str, equipping the desired item, then removing the other items, leaving the desired item equipped by its own str bonus. We also all know that this is a dumb idea (at least in softcore) b/c it tends to get stuck on one's corpse, leading to multiple corpses and lost items. Now, does anybody know what happens what mercs? 1) Can items be bootstrapped onto a merc? 2) What happens when the merc dies/is revived?
