I know this was talked before the patch came out, and I'm curious as to why these were not reimplemented into the game. Having NM A2 Mercenaries give BA/Def/HF benefits a lot of builds without unbalancing anything major. I'm not really concerned about Holy Freeze, but Defiance & Blessed Aim definitely can definitely help smooth out niche problems certain builds have.

Just curious as to why this change did not make the final patch cut, as it was one I and a couple other people were excited about.

no idea, it was one I was very happy about. I assume it was forgotten in all the arguing back then :(.

Other than Item adjustments, there wasn't any real organization to the patch. I asked PureRage for any of the adjustments he wanted in and took the zip file he gave me and added it to patch_d2.mpq. I didn't really know what was included and what wasn't included from the discussions that he was involved in.

I focused on item adjustments and getting them done right. Other things I didn't do as I am not a game modder - I just know how to tweak items.

Yeah, that's what I had in mind in regards to the change. From my understanding, this patch was thrown together pretty haphazardly for what is basically a beta-test. It's understandable that certain things weren't done perfectly.

If there are any updates for this patch in the future, I strongly suggest this change is implemented. It's simple, but it helps out a couple builds and gives a nice bit of variety when it comes to a mercenary.

Yes please! Holy freeze would be great to get back as well. Doesn't have to necessarily have the -20 pierce(or is it -10 now as well?) the A3 cold ones get, as the slow from it is good enough IMO.
