Ragnarok Mercenary System

The Mercenary System

Mercenaries are soldiers that will fight at your side on the battlefield, but there are a few terms and conditions you must fulfill to hire them. You must fulfill a level requirement and pay a zeny to hire a Mercenary. Higher grade Mercenaries will also require that you build a loyalty rating with the Mercenary guild. Mercenary contracts can’t be transferred to other people and only 5 Base Level difference is allowed between the Mercenary and client so you can’t hire one much stronger than you. 

The Summon Scroll will call a Mercenary to your side. You cant give this scroll to anyone else and the Mercenary will only remain with you for 30 minutes after you summon him. The mercenary system is like an updated version of the Homunculus system. The difference is, mercenaries have fixed stats based on the level of mercenary summoned. Both homunculus and mercenary can be used by the same player at once.
