Here is the current situation I solo and I also group a lot. I primarily use a cleric mercenary but the issue is the Merc always runs out of mana very quickly. It does take some time for to regenerate Mana. I am wondering should I focus on aa or need gear or combo of the two. I am aware a mercenary will never be as good as a real cleric. I am wondering what's the best strategy for grinding merc aa. I have noticed whenever I make a toon and I ding level 20 The Merc gets 1 aa. I am wondering should I grind aa for the merc in level 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s or 80s. Should I hire a ranger to power level in a hotspot and just grind merc aa that way. There is some debate whether or not a merc will benefit from group bonus XP potion or even hotspots or when xp bonus is on.

I group with a pre 85 group using 1 J5 cleric merc, as well as 85 to 100 solo stuff using 1 J5 or A5 cleric merc. We ALWAYS joke about the cleric/merc's completely limitless mana pool. I doubt any merc we use has more than 10AAs total as well and usually no merc gear. What level and content are you doing that you are running the merc OOM?

Between 85 and 90 efficient does not work gets pet or tank killed, have to use balanced or reactive. I have noticed if you go to the bazaar and look under class on a search mercenary will come up but yet does not show any gear so I'm wondering where do you get the mercenary gear from. I am just wondering would it be of any benefit to get merc gear or aa.

Is this a Journeyman merc (J5), or an A5 apprentice? That may make a big difference.

J1 and J5 seems after level 80 to 85 or 90 mercs are not as powerful as the lower levels.
