so like many others after many years(5) i have returned to EQ. One thing i cant figure out is how to upgrade the merc. Is this a level dependant thing? I got the best merc i could get at the start. Journeyman Tier 1 tank. Even now 39levels later all i can buy is a journeyman Tier 1. is there a merc level above journeyman? or more Tier levels? I can see the apprentise mercs have many tier levels but not the journeyman. do you have to buy a merc in a different (highlevel) zone or does merc get better by himself at higher levels? Is it i have to do quests to get a higher tier merc?
