So I've been playing EQ for a while, off and on since 2000. And I'm usually way behind on the expansions and almost always have to solo because i don't know anyone. I just signed up for 30days on EQ and I think it's about time to get a Merc. However I don't have expansions SoD and on. So, my question is, should I spend $20 on House of Thule and get some mercs and have some fun, or just buy Alaris for $40 bucks? Obviously it isn't a ton of money either way, but I am a cheapskate grad student.
By the way my main is an 80wiz, but i would love a healer merc for my 61 pally and 53 ranger (as well as rezzes for my Wiz). Thanks!
