Ok guys you Really need to do something about the size of the mercs.They are way to Big and get in the way more than they help some times. There should be away that we can make the mercs smaller than what they are. And another thing what is th big Idea that these mercs fell like they have to run and stand on top of the chest or mob that you are trying to loot. =(

It wouldn't be hard for them to make a shrink merc spell as mystics and defilers have a similar spell for their pets.

I think the problem is that for them to work the system to put them in group needs to read them like a player.   Shrink items are always optional for players.   Only way I can think of fixing the size issue is via a group illusion, or castable illusion on another.  Other then that, I would say thank your lucky stars there not as big as the normal dracur golems in the zone and only half the size.

I will take a look again about shrinking the default size of the Skyshrine Golem Mercs down a bit more. They are already half the size of the normal ones but I agree they are still a bit too big.

May as well re-name them Mini-me while you are at it.

Why not just make the Petamorph wants from SC Marketplace work on Skyshrine mercs?  Leave the standard looking ones still un-changeable but the SS ones targetable. Gives more money to the SoE fund via SC =D

Characters with targetable appearance fun spells can change their mercs regardless, btw.

Yes, they should act just as if you were targetting a player group member for spells like those.

Any info on some new ones?  a illy or a shammy would be amazing.  And i wouldn't cry if cure curse was added.  I'm mainly thinking of old raid content that needs 6 healers to cure curse, yet no one wants to do.

Thanks Gninja! Please make them smaller they will be adorable.  Bigger is not always better! *Looks around to see if anyone got that before flying off to make cookies

In the meantime, ask your friendly coercer to turn one into a troll and the other if you have it into a rat!

To be fair though, I'm getting fed up of putting this in my rebuff rotation after a wipe lol so yeah Gninja, thanks!!

We do not think about a transfer of US server chars from EU costumers in Eq2. That should solve the biggest worries the EQ2 community has at the moment. We do not want to interfere with long build ingame relationships. This is the current way we think about it.
