Damage output of the Mercenary companion has, without any kind of information to us players, been nerfed badly, down to almost a third of what it was.

Having spent a lot of AD/Comp tokens on getting mythic mercenary companions on 3 of my 7 characters, I want an official reply on whether this is on purpose or a bug, please @nitocris83.

Your constant ninja changes like this is driving more and more of your players away and dissuading us all on ever spending any RL money on this game.

    Nerf nerf nerf

    Hard to see progress when the sandcastles we make always get kicked over.

    This one is a surprise because you had to buy him originally. Came in a pack.

    Something will be BIS everyone can waste their money on…till it’s nerfed out.

    As expected this bug report was completely ignored in @nitocris83 usual Monday routine, meanwhile a minor fashion bug gets a reply... :angry:

    They've decreased it to be now ranked at 58th in single target DPS (as measured by Aragon) when it wasn't even the highest to begin with. He says that it may be accidental & hopes they may reverse or fix it. The Lightfoot Thief was similarly nerfed.

    It now does a fifth of the damage of those at the highest rank:

    Because they don't even consider this is a bug. They always nerf this nerf that. It is the nth times. It is 'normal' for years. I already get used to it and I have not spent a lot for any item. There is no point to do so.
    The game can read your mind. If you want it, you won't get it. If you don't expect to get it, you will.
