I'm one of those players who has pretty much always played Melee/caster hybrids and soloed. I still solo but I am trying a Mage this time and using a Mercenary. I seem to be able to give my pet summoned items but I'm not sure how to properly use a Mercenary. Are there any guides available that describe their use? Right now I have a Drakkin Tank that occasionally actually attacks the target. The animation always shows it attacking but the battle spam does not so I assume there is some sort of moral check that goes on there. I am also curious about the name that appears under the target bar. Is that who currently has the mob's attention? So far I am at level 19 and it has been awesome. I can gain a level or two per session with pretty much non-stop combat. I'm guessing this not going to continue as I gain levels. Thanks all!
