FlameingPumpkin - You can only have one mercenary at a time.


Hello :) I'm trying to clarify a point to hiring Mercs and changing from one Merc to another. This being: Do we have to ante up the nominal 5 plat each time we change our preference for one to another? From what I gather, we still go back to the place we 'hire' them to make the change - except for those Mercs who were hired elsewhere and are supposed to be ever-after available to the player character at their "home" Merc market. I'm not against investing good plat, at the same time, this is one of those questions that should have had a clear answer in game, I suppose it is just I haven't FOUND it yet. Thanks!

- Also, I read in the help file in game the Game Masters indicate if a Merc isn't "paid" on a daily basis, this is the mechanic as to how they leave your employ?

Yes, you do have to pony up the hiring fee each time you change your mercenary. Also, elite mercs are not available in your home city, so if you have one and switch from them, you would have to be lucky enough to find them again in the world. The other mercs you hire, -if- they are from the opposing faction cities, you'll be able to find them in Qey or FP.

As for mercs getting paid--if you don't have enough for the upkeep (30 min intervals) they will leave!
