Mercenary system

Public release is here! While this is still under development, this system is working and people can enjoy it.

What is this Mercenary System?
The Mercenary System for TrinityCore 3.3.5 and MaNGOS (mangostwo) is intended as a follower type system for your character. You will be able to gear your Mercenary fully, like you can your own character. Mercenaries will be a bit more powerful than your character for strategically soloing most content. Interact with your Mercenary, changing its skills, name and more.

Here’s a short video of it in action:

How did this project start?
I asked for ideas on a project to work on and Foereaper came up with this idea, and we (+Rochet2) made it happen. This project has been in development (off/on) since Apr. 2014.

What expansion and patch does this project support?
Currently only for WotLK 3.3.5.

Will I be able to equip my Mercenary with rings, trinkets, necklace, wrist, waist, cloak, tabard, shirt?
Yes. Overtime they will be added. Right now Mercenaries can only equip major equipment (weapons, chest, legs, etc).

Are there class and level equip restrictions?
Yes. If your Mercenary is too low of level for an item they will not be able to equip that item until they are higher level. Armor/Weapons, for example: Warriors can only equip plate, Mages can only equip cloth, etc. Same goes for weapons too.

Will stats on items increase my Mercenary’s toughness?
Yes. Any armor/weapon will increase your Mercenary’s stats, given the item has stats on it.

Are there anymore planned features?
Yes. Some features are being thought up, but below you will see what we have in store.

Have an opinion about this system? Maybe a suggestion? I’d like to hear it for improvements or crazy new features!

Thanks. DF? Dungeon Finder? Kinda blank on that acronym. /emoticons/default_tongue.png

Okay, sounds very nice. Though, I’ve actually been thinking of another alternative for such, without the usage of DF and people can still benefit from it. However, there’s always config options I could use for multiple choices – thanks for the information. /emoticons/default_biggrin.png
