he's lvl 23, I'm lvl 24 and trying to get 25 in act4 chaos sanctuarySharaz said:where were you fighting at? was he threatend, or was he killing everything he sees with one hit and never being touched?
they only kick it on when the action deems it necessary.
Sorry. Ya, hes an Act II Defensive merc, and he hasnt had any other aura. The things in the beginning of act 5 that have the ranged root spike attack kill him in 2 hitsHardyTarget said:There's EDIT -button, use it instead of posting 2 or more times in a row.
Are you sure you have the right merc?
He's going to need some life leech gear if you don't have some already.Occult said:Sorry. Ya, hes an Act II Defensive merc, and he hasnt had any other aura. The things in the beginning of act 5 that have the ranged root spike attack kill him in 2 hits
IMO, you should lvl him on normal for a few levels so he can actually wear some a litter higher equipment (gets more str etc).Occult said:I got rushed through to NM, so hes from there. Hes just got some rares, nothing good. This is my only char, so I dont have anything to trade for low lvl uniques. He also gets crap for xp. Where should I be lvling him to get him from 23-25 so he can get xp from baal?

Could you tell what the merc is wearing so people might be able to provide some help in equipping him. I might have some things for him.
Dude, he is level 23, and Holy Freeze is level 24. The level requirements for mercs do not change at all from the standard character.Occult said:ah, ok. thanks! I still wondering why his aura hasnt turned on yet. I did the throne room up to the last mob pack and nothing
I agree leveling a merc takes so long...I just stand there and make sure he dosen't die..while I twidle my thumbs...I would go back to norm to lvl him too. Act4 should get him good xp...or you could do what the other guys say...both good options :clap:TheAlfheim said:Correct me if I'm wrong, but isnt there a minimum level requirement for the merc and the aura?
The other thing to bear in mind is that the merc will only get experience if you or he makes the kill. If you're going through baal runs with other people, you will get exp, but the merc wont (again, unless you or the merc does the kills).
The most effective way to level a merc is by yourself.
I agree with the other guys..... wait a few levels to get the merc. Leveling mercs has to be one of the most tedious jobs......
