It displays a tank icon but heals like a beast. I used it on my zerker and it was spiking on the hate meter so it's def popping hate. It heals better than most mercs too (percentage heals versus numerical amount heals). It's the perfect merc. What class is it and how will we obtain it when ToT goes live?

Its a hybrid of a couple different classes. We didn't have an icon for that <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" />

Hi Zues,<br /><br />Are you talking about Delidrae or a different ToT merc?<br /><br />Thanks!

What other merc is there in ToT? Delidrae doesn't heal very well. If there is another around I'd love to give it a shot. I can only clear Adv Solos with someone playing a healer, not with any of the healer mercs.

So, you can imagine my surprise when Zues said she healed and taunted as I wouldn't expect a Brig to do that <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" /> ..<br /><br />Does this mean Delidrae has changed since yesterday? I hope so and will keep my fingers crossed <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" alt="BigGrin" />

It's a mix, but there was no name for it. Still doesn't heal well enough to be viable.

Does this mean there are people actually in beta right now? Playing? If so....how on earth did you accomplish that?

Hi Alphonsus,<br /> <br />Respectfully, I believe we have a miscommunication here. <i>Yes</i>, I did read Gninja's post, but again, I asked for clarification because Delidrae I tested <span style="text-decoration: underline"><i>yesterday morning</i></span> <b>didn't</b> <i>heal</i> or <i>taunt</i>. It was classed a Brigand, and used Brigand abilities:<br /> <br /><img src="http://i67.tinypic.com/242tue8.jpg" class="bbCodeImage LbImage" alt="[IMG]" /><br /> <br />This seemed reasonable given that the merc is described as a "damaging" merc, rather than a healer or tank.<br />Here was the heal parse for her at that time (no healing done):<br /> <br /><img src="http://i67.tinypic.com/mjy1sp.jpg" class="bbCodeImage LbImage" alt="[IMG]" /><br /> <br />...and was her for taunt parse (again, <i>at that time</i>):<br /> <br /><img src="http://i65.tinypic.com/25s3jbl.jpg" class="bbCodeImage LbImage" alt="[IMG]" /><br /> <br />I realize that things change rapidly on Beta, and that these changes aren't always reflected in the forums. I hope this helps you to understand why I was confused by Zues' post, and hope you'll concede that I wasn't simply being lazy, and had good reason to ask for more information.<br /> <br />Thank you,

Its a mix of Brigand and Wizard with some group lifetap style abilities.

I'm back in Beta, testing Delidrae again...in the ToT overland zones, she's still only getting around 70-80k DPS, but seems to be <span style="text-decoration: line-through">taunting now</span> able to hold aggro against a beta buffed Templar, and if she's healing (a whole 172 HPS...)...<br /> <br />I'm not sure what Zues saw in her, but I'm still not seeing anything spectacular <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" alt="Frown" />
