Merc probs

Postby Dyspho » Tue Feb 28, 2017 8:06 pm

A couple of the users, and myself, were talking about mercs in this mod today. So far, we have noticed a1 works great. The second ring and boots are the only things not able to equip. A2 merc's stock auras seem to be working fine...but they take forever to attack even once, then, don't attack that mob again. Makes it incredibly hard to keep my might merc alive for summon nec. A3 are a little buggy with attacking as well. I have not tried a5 yet and would really like to move on to trying other things, if someone could chime in on them. Thanks!

It's interesting that the Merc's AI is behaving strangely as they weren't changed and we aren't running any sort of merc plugins at the moment (shouldn't be with the new patch anyway).

I'm aware they can't use second ring or feet, need a merc plugin to do that and I haven't gotten any to work server side yet. Single player vs. server modding is continuing to be a vexingly different process.

I agree that this must be frustrating. I thought it weird that the only mercs working perfectly are the ones with adjustments. At least I'm guessing a1 didnt have BoS before. If so, I am not very out of touch.

No, that's new. A1 Merc in Hell is pretty cool, too!

I have not, but I tracked down a couple users who have. They said the attack on them was a little glitched. When I log in today, I will test.1

edit : Normal act 3 merc test, all three merc around level 28 hire.
Lite - attacks proficiently with lightning and charged bolt.
fire - attacks proficiently with fireblast, fireball (i think), and firewall.
cold - continuously cast some cold armor spell. never actually attacks.

I hate to be a pain, but, I feel like my a2 nm merc is still having attacking issues. He definitely attacks now. It's just he has a delay before he attacks, and a delay in between aggros. I can't help but feel I am having to over gear him to survive things he should be able to normally leech through.

For single player you have to update your patch.

Normal act 1 merc did not level up. Stayed at level 15 throughout normal. Hired a new one in Nighmare, and she leveled up with me through NM.
Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.

Latest patch is always available on the Github link that is shared. If there is a "more recent" version, it's that link.

We want players playing on the realm. My sugestion is we don't make single player as goog as realm. Just leave it go give people a taste of what is on the realm.
