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 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. For mercenaries to equip certain Armor/Weapons, those are set in the mercenary_proficiencies table.
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.
This system is still under development. Help us by reporting issues.
