    Default Starter Pack - Gold Seal Hire Question

    All other gold seal hires allow summoning at 2 levels below the hire's level. Yet this Lvl 3 hire is ML:3.

    I bought this pack to use with my TR. Now I can't use it as intended.

    When is this going to be fixed?

    No replies eh?

    This is like selling a 4-door sedan where the buyer later finds out that two of the four doors are welded shut.

    I'm tempted to phone support and harass them for a refund.

    I'm pretty sure the Devs don't intend two Permanent Gold Seal Elieri hirelings to be active at the same time. That's just a guess since currently in game you can't have both a PP and the Permanent Gold Seal at the same time. Blah!

    I know there's alot of complaining about various things about the Starter Pack, but I was really hoping that the incorrect ML would be corrected or at least acknowledged by now. I pretty much bought the Starter Pack just for use of the hireling as soon as I create or TR my toons. As I mentioned above, the current hireling is a PP hireling that can be called anywhere in the quest and not a Gold Seal one.

    honestly, I would feel upset and ripped off. I assume the hire isn't supposed to be min level 3? if its intended, I would feel like I wasted my money because that limits the hire to a max of 3 levels instead of 5. if its not intended, the fix will be soon™.

    Not sure how the cleric works... but you can have multiple panther hirelings in a group at the same time.

    When you buy a standard gold seal hireling, you can summon it when you are at 2 lvls below the Hire's lvl.
    So if you bought Elieri on a standard gold seal contract with Astral Shards, say, you would be able to use that gold seal lvl 3 hireling when your character was at lvl 1.


    I just TRed, in the one day that a level 3 gold seal hireling would have been useful to me (and I do not zerg), I was only able to use it for a short period before it became underlvl.
    Yeah, I could continue to use it, and use it with a standard hire, but why would I? I was lvl 1 yesterday, I'm now at lvl 5. That short window of real usefulness is gone.



    Thanks for the wonderful products Turbine. You always make me feel so happy to have spent my money on your bugs, er, products.
    And thanks for taking the time to respond, Turbine henchmen.


    Shame on me. I really should know better. I'd get a better deal and more accountability from a used car dealer than from Turbine.

    Just bumping this to point out that neither the problem has gone away, nor I.

    Default Still no answer

    I still don't see an answer as to why this hireling (who is supposed to be a "starter" can't be summoned by first level characters.

    I'm brand new to the game, and bought the Starter Package as part of a group of sale buys on Black Friday. I'm a bit disappointed as to how this Starter Package is handled. I thought the package was good across all game worlds - the hireling is not showing up in all worlds. It would also be helpful if more information about the scorpion were available to a new player - I assumed the critter would help me fight, not just make noise and walk around with me. I spent nearly an hour trying to figure out if the scorpion's moves or something else needed to be activated to fight!
