    Strange Incident

    Hi, I was dueling in a public game in HCL and there was this sorc that wanted to merc duel. I said yes to that and my merc went out. Now this is the strange part, I dont see his merc walk out, but instead i see a shadow, like a merc's shadow. I am 100% sure that its not someone else's merc becase there were only my char and his sorc. And i am sure that its not my merc's shadow because its facing the opposite way, the shadow comes and kills my merc then it walks back to town. I Cant see his merc but his shadow. Now this is really strange, anyone seen this?

    I have heard of that, i think i saw it once too... it was an act2 merc right? They wander around, but just their shadow shows up, it would go away in a different game i belive.

    True that will work, although a quick "/whois <charname>" seems to do the trick for me :p

    I've had this happen to me, it takes me back to my SC days. I had a PvP Sorc, with an Act 1 merc. Whenever I'd die, I'd run back to the Black Marsh or Dark Wood WP where I stashed my gold, and then resurrect my merc. Every so often she'd just load as a shadow of herself, and would walk around aimlessly like they all do. She wasn't invincible, or have any special attacks, or anything like that, but she had the advantage of being unseen. Other mercs and guided arrows were able to find her, so she didn't lose anything except for her skin model.

    So I guess it was just a bug they didn't get to squash yet. Oh yeah, for the people that think it's their equipment that cause this, she was using a WF, Um'd Shako, and Ethereal Viper Magi. Hope that helps clear up some things.
