    Previously known info on mercs:
    https://toramonline.com/index.php?threads/everything-you-need-to-know-about-mercenaries.33957/

    Any thoughts on the new system? How is MP acquired? Does AMPR exist? Did the devs modify any info from the above link? Do skill actually do full damage of your characters mercenary, or are they scaled in some form? Personally seeing my mage cast finale is rather interesting. This is quite a big change to the game, allowing players to solo content otherwise needed with a team.

    Skill damage is woeful. It's comparable to pets regarding ampr.

    We can't know for sure until a new dataminer appears... personally, I don't think merc mp and ampr exists. As they said, there's a cooldown based on skill mp cost, so that's it. Try taking a low-accuracy partner/merc to a high dodge boss and see

    I'm kinda confused when I tried equipping Satellite Arrow in a merc. The skill was stuck at level 1.

    it appears they use fixed skill effects.
    just like staff mercs have power wave even when they didn't learn the skill.

    hmm can merc use pet support skills like pet heal and pet mp heal?
    and magic warrior skills can be applied to merc
    and i think regarding cooldown, merc should specialize in using skills to help prorate(etc spam impact but idk if non tumble stat works) if the player is alr strong
    i also found out another thing where your merc can still equip the skills even tho its not using the right weapon for the skill

    I could assign Goliath to my Partner merc.
    I didn't check if he performs it.
    Finale is definitely performed. Will check again.

    Mercs don't have critrate. I tested my halb character to cerberus ulti with 200 accuracy and 140+ crit rate. Its attacks are low chance to hit (I guess it's still accuracy based)

    I have just tested buster blade on my attacker merc and confirmed that the buster blade heal works on the merc. I made it solo super death mushroom with all the poison ailment and saw that buster blade healed its hp, but I'm still not sure whether buster blade is still auto crit or not.......any ideas on how to test it?

    Curious, what do you mean by fixed skill effects? I don't have satellite arrow on a character to look, but other skills appear to state a level. Is it just certain skills that have a fixed skill effect?

    Guys, provoke aggro from a mercenary tank now generates enough aggro that we don't have to use sneak attack when partying with a tank mercenary. So tank mercenaries with high hp suddenly became more viable now. I've also confirmed that royal heal works on healing the merc tank's hp, so a mercenary tank can potentially be used on almost all bosses, even those with lots of fractional attacks, if someone can use royal heal to heal the merc.

    In other words, mercenary tanks no longer need accuracy stat to generate enough aggro, provoke lvl 10 aggro is good enough. You can then use the 2nd skill slot for a defensive, healing, or interrupt/debuff skill, so far I've found that magadachi, phantoms slash, and storm reaper works well as a defensive skill for tank merc.

    With all the mercs being jacked up, hope they remove the nerf on pets. Vampire dps pets still suck(in a bad way, with pun inteded) in parties last time i checked.

    How does damage scale? Is an attacker merc with 10k mATK using Finale... will actually do 100% of that damage?

    Will Knight's Will have an effect on a Merc using Provoke?
