Missing Some Mercenary Stances

    On my level 102 shaman Silver account character, I have one Gnome - Damage Caster Apprentice Tier V mercenary.

    I just noticed that the only stances they have to choose from are "Balanced" and "Passive. There are no "Burn" or "Burn AE" stances.

    It has always been this way for my F2P and/or Silver accounts. Just two selections.

    I discovered this many years ago (2010?) when the player I was grouping with kept telling me to put my merc on a burn and I kept telling him I only saw 2 and those were balanced or passive and that I had no other controls for him.

    No one paid attention back then when I pointed this out and the only response I got was that it was because those types of accounts (Silver and F2P) were not All Access/Gold with the J5 merc and only the J5 mercs had extra stances.

    So I do not think this is a bug but is a natural restriction for F2P and Silver not having all the merc embellishments.

    Kind of like the limitations on bank slots

    My bad. Looking in-game at the mercenaries for sale, I see that Apprentice mercenaries have fewer stances than Journeyman.

    Darkpaw, sorry for this and please mark this as "Not a Bug".
