well, I feel ripped off and wont purchase these through the store again.
If one dies it takes 15 min of hitting hte rez shrine for them to go -- OHH ok I will now stop standing around and rezarect.

Im a little ****ed at the waste of points and waste of my time. and yes it took 15 min of spamming the "cogs" to get them to rez.

15 minutes is a bit extreme.

Personally I Wouldn't buy the hirelings in the basis that they are on an hour timer but eh... Just chalk it up to a benefit for having an actual human instead of an NPC running around with you.

While I can't speak for hirelings purchased through the store, I've found the hirelings in game to be an excellent value.
I can pick up a Cleric for less than the price of 2 Cure Moderate Wounds Potions, and with a little guidance they can be immensely useful.

Except for Kendra.
What self-respecting Cleric can't turn the Undead?

I've ran in some groups where someone pulled out their pocket clerics. One bot liked to get in there and melee with what looked like a toothpick and died a lot, but the others knew their role and just stood there and healed, for the most part. I remember a little confusion trying to get one to rez one time, but not other times.

From what I've seen, thumbs-up on hirelings. Healbot ones, anyway.
