4 things would make me happy about hires and the rest would be gravy
1) AI awareness. do as they are told and not as they want. stay. heal me. heal yourself. come. follow. get out of the trap.
2) quicken. cool down is too long for single casting, especially with multiple players in the group.
3) get off my ass. you are taking too much unnecessary damage. the spell radius is bigger than right behind me. my own shadow gives me more space than the hire does.
4) pathing sucks. the trap box is in front of you but you have to run around the pillar and zig zag sliding on the floor to get to the box? must you stand IN the trap to get the box? stand 1 foot to the left please. hires do a slide dance around the shrine before actually shrining or they stop and you get an error message that the shrine is too far away.
