I don't know if he's curing "arcane," but I see both my Inqui & my Templar casting cure spells all the time.

They do cure, very well actually. The problem is their not curing arcane. If you get charmed your done. Charmed is arcane right?

I haven't run into any mobs that have tried to charm any of my characters so far, so I can't answer this. Admittedly I've not paid that close of attention to what they're actually curing, & I don't recall them saying, "Curing XXX type of affect," but instead just "curing detriments from so-&-so," or something like that. I'll try to watch out for this when I next log in.

But I do agree, if they're not curing arcane, that's an issue.

I've never used the defiler and haven't pulled out the warden on the char that has her in a while so I can't recall if she did then.

I had Stamper out last night however and he was curing everything, arcane included,  like a champ.  I had the dwarf templar out last week and also had no issues with him. Now that being said, I have not really fought any mobs that charm with a merc. I can't see any reason why they would treat charm any differently than other arcane effects though.

The barbarian mystic apparently doesn't know he has a cure ability at all though =/. My berserkers going to be trading him in for a rat or dwarf if he's not fixed soon.

Charmed is not always arcane.

Sometimes an arcane is a charm, like in PR, but there are plenty of charms that are not arcane and/or can not be cured.

Shard of Love, Chardok Spider Queen, PR, SoH, etc. all have fights with a curable arcane charm. But the mercs wont cure it. Go try and get charmed and see what I mean. Perhaps it's situational and random but I just ran three PR runs and a Shard of Hate run (Hallway fight in PR and first named on left in SoH). All were curable, but went uncured. This was the case last week too. Good thing I was two boxing them.

Did you have your merc set to protect or assist you?  Was it attacking when you were charmed?  I ask because sometimes a charm will reset an encounter if there are no other characters hitting the mob that charmed you (Shard of Love flying bug for example), so you would want to make sure the merc was hitting the mob.  For that fight, I always set my Inquis merc to protect me and I have never had a problem of not being cured.

If you're charmed, that means the merc is getting beat on which is why it's not curing you.  It's in self defense mode.  As soon as the merc is done being beat on it'll go back to pretty much ignoring it's own life bar in favor of yours.  Mercs don't multitask well.

Using both stamper (inqui) and the inqui archon on my bruiser, warlock and assassin to molo soh, and they all cure the charm. Their spells have re use timers, and if they are getting beat on too hard, will just spam heals on themselves. once they reach 100% hp for 2 or 3 sec, they cure as usual.

and on a side note, some tso raid encounters have a charm which is a curse.

If the charm is curable, you can cure yourself or pot-cure it.

I frequently run SoH with my Inquisitor merc.

I'm pretty sure the charm from Master P'Tasa is arcane based. Every time I get charmed the merc will cure it within 2 seconds.

I like the mystic on my pet classes for the group wards, but he sure is lazy. He'll let you get under 50% health before he'll even consider giving you a heal and I don't think he's heard about cures. He NEVER cures.

Not sure if trolling, or just doesn't understand the difference between charmed and stun/stifle/fear/mezz/etc...

maybe in pvp or something. but in pve when your charmed, you can't do anything. no pot curing, or self cures. either something cures you, or it wears off.
