    Mercenaries at launch?

    From the Mage talents article on gameforge

    LEADERSHIP +1 Mercenary Slot

    While a typical hero will eventually be to take three mercenaries around with them, a Human has the unique ability to take a fourth. Not only does this mean you’ll functionally get an extra life during Dungeon Runs, you’ll also be able to populate your bench with a fourth deck and champion, meaning you’ll have a broader tool kit to access when it comes to selecting a champion for individual fights.
    Are we getting mercs day 1 now?

    Guys, the Mage update is the only think you really should discuss. >< Just look at that gorgeus stuff!

    Surely it's development bandwidth. If it was an R&D issue, he would said so like he did for Doublebacks.

    I don't remember mercs being ruled out in the pcgamer interview. But I do remember Cory speaking about the kickstarter merc zoltog

    Doesn't the 3rd racial trait unlock at level 15, and PvE is capped at level 10 for now? It would make that point moot.

    Where in there did he say that? Mercs seem kind of important since they are your health...

    If I'm remembering correctly, he made an ambiguous statement; something like, "Mercs aren't in there now." It could be taken to mean that though we don't have mercs now, we'll get them when PvE comes out, or it could mean that mercs aren't in the PvE build that they currently have.

    Edit: He starts talking about mercenaries at about 1:39:00 and says they "aren't in the game at this point."

    It'll be interesting to see how they balance the merc decks with player deck restrictions on cards. Like are the merc's deck leveling with you?
