The loading screen is a little misleading about the hireling.
The loading screen when starting the game advertises the expansion pack, and how buy pre-purchasing the expansion pack you get all these bonuses. What's misleading is that the Owlbear hireling is listed, among the Iconic, the creature companion and "much more." So, thinking this I went ahead and bought the regular expansion thinking that because I bought "early", I get whats on the loading screen (Immediate in game bonuses). So after many attempts at purchasing and getting the code to work I finally got it to go through, but when I logged in, no hireling.
So, I sent in a ticket and was told that I have to get it as an add-on for more money. I thought, that can't be right, it says on the loading screen that you get the iconic, the owlbear, the companion, and much more when pre-purchasing. So I called customer service thinking they could offer more help, but all I got was a very nice lady who just kept channeling our conversation so I would get off the phone (Which I can understand, I once worked in a call center as well). So now I am stuck with something I bought thinking it came with xyz, and now I'm getting told "Oh, well, you only get x when you pay more." I figure, at least put something on the loading screen that says "Additional purchase necessary" next to the items that they are going to be deceiving about. I added the image of the loading screen to this post so you can look for yourself.
How can you get the owlbear hireling without legendary upgrade?
Does anyone know if the owlbear hireling will be buyable either ingame on a vendor, or in the turbine store??? just pre-ordered the $49 expansion. not paying for the legendary upgrade, but would like to get the owlbear.
