Is there a list of merc skills (and maybe stats) anywhere? Been looking for a while now but can't find them.

Thanks.

Didnt they fix it so they all got the same?

So, I have a faithful friend here, Khaleel of the Iron Wolves, who's adept in the arts of necromancy - He's in his 80's now, and I've yet to see him cast a single Bone Spirit.

What's the 'trick' there? Also, I was wondering about his poison aura's strange behaviour compared to the other holy auras, as the -10 poison pierce applies only when his regular spells hit, not by the aura itself. Is that intentional?

I am not familiar with an actual bug with the vanilla D2 lightning mercs. It's just that their damage was totally lackluster.

Damage for mercs in HU has always been better.
Geared properly Light mercs are strong (and have been).
I don't remember enough of 1.21z to recall if mercs disappeared in normal when they tried to use NM/Hell merc skills, but this would be the only bug.
