Is an a3 cold merc the same in norm and nm? I know they apparently won't cast blizzard until nm, but do you have to buy the nm one? Does the nm one have lower hp than the normal one?

Yeah I'm just not sure if that means you have to BUY THEM from nightmare, or just BE in nightmare/hell for them to use those. The Nightmare a3 mercs are only level ~45 so having to backtrack level him is really lame.

Yes, you must re-hire your merc when you´r in NM/Hell. Well this is my interpretation on it, it´s not so terrible, just Lvl-up him/her in normal dif. :D

Using your cold merc as an example. Normal hired mercs get all listed skill EXCEPT blizzard, which is only available to those hired beyond normal. That being said, that merc will not cast blizzard in normal. Same holds true for all other merc types. The highest level skill will not be used in normal. Also of note, they do benefit from +skills and items such as staves with +x to a particular skill, he will not benefit from +sorc skill items.

Ok thanks. :) I think their levels need to be adjusted then. A3 nm mercs should be level 65-70, not 45.

Mercs will level quite quickly if you walk in the right spot. Show your merc some love.

From Blue's older HU database site
http://blue.arimyth.com/
hit the Information tab, and area levels.
Run your mercs at the appropriate place for your merc's level...there is also some other good stuff that never got put into the new (Dew's) database site that is linked on the Board Index here. If you wonder why things changed...well they did...go read old threads.
