Mercenary Fighter for 50 gold coins: T2 Fighter, T3 Fighter, T4 Taskmaster (about 10% chance)!? Would I pay 50 coins for a T2? Probably, not … considering the chance of getting T2 is quite high. The T3 fighters are 5k ones, so not bad. Is the taskmaster, being in the rng loot table intended? Wouldn’t it make more sense to have a good T4 fighter instead?
Mercenary Alchemist for 50 gold coins: T2 Alchemist, T3 Alchemist, T4 Alchemist (about 10% chance). Considering how easy is to get alchemists from Sepermeru nowadays and the witch doctor being a purge alchemist, I doubt I would be using these merchants a lot but at least alchemist is a desired NPC.
Mercenary Dancer for 30 gold coins: T2 Dancer, T3 Dancer,T4 Dancer (about 5% chance).
Mercenary Archer for 30 gold coins: T2 Archer, T3 Archer, T4 Archer (about 5% chance). 30 coins is not much but T2 are easy to get as well.
In general, I am not a fan of gambling and I would prefer to have a fixed price for a random T2, a random T3 and a random T4. I would even remove the T2s and if the gamble is to stay, then gamble between T3 and T4 only.
The idea is interesting, especially on pvp servers where catching thralls could be a bit more difficult. On PVE servers, I would see myself gambling, if I could get T4 purge npcs. On PvP servers, it would be nice to be able to buy some crafters. Which would be the most desired and what price would the PvPers be ready to pay for them, I am not sure.
Having said all that, I am pleased to note that the NPCs are starting to sell more useful stuff.
P.S. There is no walkable path to the last platforms where Shamalla The Pirate Queen and Ignasis the Greedy (pun intended) are located.
