In short: back after a long gap, got some specific Qs about these 3 aspects fo the game, grateful for expert advice please - can't find this stuff elsewhere, so here we go... 1. Mercs. - I have 3 now on my 2 x Mains; is that enough? - Or, should I just pick one per toon and concentrate on gearing/training them? - Is it even worth my while training a Merc before I get to 120 (I got the mains from 95 to 100, moving steadily but slowly, want to see all the new zones)? - Is it worth my while getting higher-tier Mercs (if I can), or will Treasured cut it at end game? 2. Overseer rewards - I'm getting a lot of stuff; I'm OK with gear, but confused as to the Infusers. Again, use them now on my L98/100 gear, or hoard them until 120? 3. Familiars. Finally, is it worth saving up and getting one really good one per toon, one that suits their style, or will Legendary be enough? Sorry for the long post - there's a lot to get back in my head just remembering rotations, without all this new stuff! That said, I've been on many many other MMORPGs since leaving EQ2 and I've raided on most of them - and EQ2 is still best as regards basic gameplay, crafting, houses, mounts, and even just playing solo/with Merc. I might even start a new toon off, just to go through the zones again and discover things once more - magic!
