so why does everyone hate the combat hireling from the Desert Act for summoners? I have not really read why having might or thorns from NM is better than healing your minions on a constant basis. I rarely use my skeleton or mage castings once ive gotten them up and running since they never die and it allows me to keep reviving dead foes since i am not wasting the mana on my own summons. I would like a reasoned reason please, not smack talkers. i have used the healing hireling for YEARS and am curious why no one else does.
A person by himself or even with 1 or 2 people is/are not stupid but people in groups or en masse are stupid and should be treated as such.
