With the latest update, mercenaries finally got an update that made them a more viable option in EoK. We received new AAs, gear, and HP and mitigation update. However, most of the update was white noise - the new gear and AAs doesn't affect overall efficiency much at all and devs missed point of community's complaints. Sometimes, I feel I spend more time micromanaging my mercs, rather than playing my own characters. Instead of increasing there efficiency, why not add more control? When all poop breaks lose and mobs add, I should be able direct the mercs attention to the proper target without micromanaging roles and assist keys. Also, there spell and ability list needs updated to better align with new content. I shouldn't have to block spells and micromanage stances. Who in there right mind would keep a real player that constantly needs to be told how to play? Mercs are not replacements for real players, but why should they require the supervision of a three year old? Just my 2 cents.
