Quick Mercenary Question If I buy a level 14 mercenary and level him up to 20 will he be more powerful than simply buying a level 20 mercenary? In the mercenary strategy guide it mentions that a merc bought in normal difficulty will have higher stats than a merc bought in nightmare difficulty (of the same level). Is the difference between them simply a matter of the difficulty level (all nightmare mercs get a few less stat points than their normal counterparts) or is it because nightmare mercs will tend to be a higher level when you buy them (so have had less chance to level them up). Why am I asking? I want a Nightmare Act II Might mercenary and I'm wondering whether I should rush to get him at as low level as possible or whether it won't matter if I get him at level 20 or 50.
