<b>"Elite Battle-Mystic Mercenary"</b><br /> <br />How can we test this merc? A strong merc with solid AI is the only reason I would purchase the CE version of the expansion. The extra fluff is cool of course, but it doesn't interest me personally.

the point would be, does he heal better and cure than the others...<br /> <br />I currently use Stompy and one Archon Construct, because they are the only 2 that cure.

Bdorn is a pretty reliable curer as well, I've found.

If nothing else, <a href="https://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/index.php?threads/awesome-bonus-items-for-purchasing-altar-of-malice.552468/page-11#post-6118486" class="internalLink">Afista has said upgrading to the CE from the Standard can be done at any time</a>. Since there's no pre-order discount, there's no rush to get the CE. Wait for feedback from folks who do get it, and then decide?

They said somewhere it will hold up well in the new heroic zones. I would assume it would be very powerful in the older (even current) zones then? Must heal well and have very nice dps/mitigation for all that mess.<br /> <br />Or...it could be the new crit system going into effect will play a part with the new merc having some really nice crits?<br /> <br />I would laugh if getting a mythical crit is so rare they put in an audio like the old killer instincts "ultra! ultra! ultra!"....can hear it now ..."mythical! mythical! mythical!..." lol

The price of the CE is ridiculous. I am on a fixed income and while I would love to have the CE as I have with most expansions, this one is so out of reach price-wise that I may just quit the game altogether. I am a day one player but the price gauging and bait and switch tactics I have seen in the last couple years has really gotten under my skin.

If not there then someone in the forums, probably ranting that they're not much better than X while someone else is saying they're 10x better than the same X.<br /> <br />I'm still going back and forth on it. Having the merc & mount for all of my alts would be pretty nice but I'm not sure I have to have it on day 1. If I did pick it up I'd be glad to pass along stats & my impression of it.
