Talk:Mercenary Hero

eh?[edit source]

Only Mercenary Heroes in the first three hero slots have access to the Hero Control Panel, compass flags, and other individual controls.

Besides appearance, mercenaries act exactly like normal heroes, don't they? (I haven't purchased any yet, so I can't check firsthand.) I know that for heroes in general:

  • You can open the Hero Control Panel for all 7 heroes.
  • You only have individual flags for 1 2 and 3; 4 through 7 can only be controlled by the "all" flag.

Doesn't that apply the same for mercenaries? And are there other "individual controls" that I haven't listed? —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 06:21, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

...Actually, I'm as confused as you are, looking back at it the next day. I must have been majorly spacing out, I guess. — ızǝℲ 16:25, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
So I go off to spend some quality time with the xbox360 (+BFBC2) and come back to find they've changed the mechanics again. So a quick question which I can't see answered in the faq. Can you take your existing heros and add mercenary's to make up your party to 8 to use in some of the more difficult areas (like UW, FOW, the Deep, ROT etc?)Cyberhythm 00:28, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
The mechanics are mostly the same for heroes. What's changed is:
  • Whenever you could have taken a PvE henchie, you can take a PvE hero, i.e. 3 heroes in Ascalon area, 7 in UW/FoW, 7 in Deep/Urgoz.
  • If you want to customize your heroes (by choosing prof, armor, and name), you can do so using mercenary slots. There's no other difference between e.g. Necromancer Livia and Necromancer Cyberrhythm.
So, you don't need mercs to have 7 heroes. — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 00:45, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
Basically, it's two different changes.
  1. Each player can now add up to 7 heroes to the party, as opposed to only 3 previously.
  2. You can now create Mercenary Heroes, which are cosmetic copies of your existing characters. Essentially, after purchasing a Mercenary Hero Slot, you can populate that slot with a "snapshot" of one of your characters — it saves their name, primary profession, physical appearance (hair/face/etc.), and the armor/costume they are wearing. Mercenary heroes function exactly like regular heroes in that you have to give them weapons and set their skills/attributes.
I hope that between me and Ernie we explained it well enough for you. ^_^ —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 04:02, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Hero Loot to Player ??[edit source]

So when a Mercenary Hero receives loot (or gold) after a battle does that end up in the player's inventory? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Separ (contribs) .

No. --Vipermagi 16:28, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
