I've been leveling my merc in act 2 hell mode to catch up with me, I had him fully geared with some nice uniques+high level r/w's(Champion Of Light for the Salv aura).
Suddenly I noticed he wasnt putting out as much damage as he normally did and he was actually taking damage(prior to this glitch he was pretty much able to solo everything).
So I checked his gear, and voila. The picture says it all.
But the thing is, he still has his salv aura. Yes its still in effect, and it affects me aswell. It's like he has the armor piece on, but no bonuses except the aura.
Not sure if you're even still working on this mod or not, but I thought i'd let you know incase you were perhaps just taking a break or what have you. Still, I love this mod, hopefully you decide to keep it going.
