Problems With Merc's

I just "purchased" a NM Merc (Offensive with Might Aura). I of course got rushed and decided to purchase him at a low lvl (2 to be exact) so as to maximize his stats. However although his Defense, Strengh, Dex, and Damage continue to increase, his Life has not (still at base 40) and his aura has yet to make an appearence. He is currently lvl 9. Does anyone have any idea's as to what the problem is?

Well the main problem is getting him at such a low level for a nm merc...and soon his life will start to pick up. Just keep leveling him.

It's not a Pokemon. Merc's have a set rate in which their stats increase. Buying them at low level makes no difference. Only the difficulty in which you buy them matter.

All my chars are ruined!!!!! :shocked: :duh: :weep:
You can shout: "Azrael, I choose you!" everytime he attacks something, but it really doesn't do your char any good. I tried it.

lol...eh..the difference of hiring normal/nm/hell mercs isn't all that much is it?..i mean if you lvl them up fmo low lvls vs hiring at higher lvls?

either way just be grateful they capped the rezzing at 50k...i remeber back in the days it used to be tons of gold to rez

you're mostly correct - the difference isn't all that much. However, if you get him in Normal he'll have slightly better stats/resists/life at the same level as a Hell-based merc.

Of course, that doesn't account for the fact that you can only get Might, HolyFreeze, and <whatever> mercs in Nightmare - their aura is different in Normal and Hell.

Yeah, back then the max. level of their auras would differ too, depending on the level/difficulty they were hired.

SO Wrong!

I totally just found the unique item "master ball". I captured my merc and now I take him to the nurse to heal him instead. He is clearly superior. Also he is lvl 99 because of rare candies. MUahahaha!.

Ok done the craziness....Thanks for the help. Have a good one.
