mercenary upgrade

  1. 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?
  2. I don't think you have too many options at lower levels. There is a whole SOD progression quest/task line that as you move from VoidA onwards you can get new ones that are higher.

    That's true. The merc does level with you and gets access to new spells and abilities as you go up. And at your level (39 I think you said) they are quite powerful already.
  4. I got a 62 enchanter, my wife a 62 druid. We both have Journeyman tank mercs. Ive been told soon...around level 70 say, it would be a good idea to change 1 and get a cleric.
    What level is ideal for going through the progression to get the higher teired mercs?

    You can do most of the OGH progression around 75 with your group (one healer, one tank merc); the enchanter really will make the difference for that. Tier 2 has a couple of tough progression tasks, but again the enchanter should be able to swing the difference - but probably closer to 80 than to 75. Thinking about it, you don't really get a dps dependent task until tier 5 (Tosk); before then it's all about single pulling and crowd control.
