    Random Question...

    So I have a question that has been bugging me since the very first time I hit Act V. You know those barbarians in Act V who you "help" kill monsters in the first few areas? (Not the mercenaries you hire, but every once in awhile you come across a random barbarian fighting monsters) What is the purpose of them? Do you get experience from the monsters they kill? Are there any consequences/advantages on your part if you let them die? I know that if one of them is near you, they gain the effect of any auras you or your merc has, so they must be considered in your "party". But they never appear in any of the other Acts, so I was never sure quite what to make of them.

    I second that, which is too bad. They really rip through stuff once you get 5 or so of them ganged up on an enemy...of course tha tonly lasts for one or two enemies. I always thought it would be cool if you HAD to use them to finish the quest, and the reward you got at the end was a function of how many of them were alive and partied with you. Like instead of rescuing the soldiers and getting 'Ancients Pledge', you get that runeword for 1 alive and partied, something like 'Lionheart' runes if half of them are alive and partied, and then something just obscene if all of them are alive and well.

    I never would have thought of using bonewall to guide them past the places they get stuck.
